Think of a recent situation where you said “I don’t have time” as an excuse for not achieving something. Now instead replace it with “It’s not a priority for me”. In most cases, you’ll find that the latter is valid and far more accurate. Being honest with ourselves and admitting that it’s not a priority is far more empowering.
“When I first came to the gym I was worried I would be out of my depth, look out of place and that I would be the only one in the room that couldn’t do anything. I realised none of those were true after the first day and that quickly put my mind at ease after that….”
It is the coaches job to advise, prescribe and optimise movement patterns in a controlled setting first before we then add load, intensity, or complexity of skills. We all know that it is not smart to add strength to dysfunction, or it is bound inefficiency or possibly even injury. Scaling workouts is nothing to be ashamed of. It is not for the weak and the untrained and does not mean your workout was less worthy because you scaled.
As passionate and helpful coaches, our goal when you enter our the gym is to pass on as much knowledge, information, and encouragement onto you as possible. Here are our top tips that we believe you, as an athlete, can do to get the most out of your coaches and your time here with us in the gym….
I’m stronger and fitter than ever. I love the variety, technical instruction, team spirit, group workout, challenge, option of competition, inspiration of the very fit, multitude of skills to learn, friendly fun & encouraging coaching, whole body functional workouts and that it’s not elitist.
I’ve made some incredible friends and I get to workout with some of the most positive and inspiring people every day. It’s not just a workout you get here it’s support and encouragement from some absolutely amazing coaches and along with this you get to do things you never dreamt you would be able to do.
The happiest, fittest place on earth. Nothing short of a revelation in community, healthy living and friendship. The Crisp family and their friends put every ounce of their considerable kindness and determination into this place and it shows. A truly wonderful place.
Initially I was worried about being intimidated by people far fitter and stronger than me as I have never felt comfortable in the gym using weights. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming and the coaching you get is great. Fabulous place, fabulous people.
I have achieved a fitness level I didn’t think I was capable of since joining Glevum. Due to the support of the coaches and the great equipment available I am anyways pushing myself further and further. All with the added bonus of making lots of new friends!
For me Glevum has been the nearest thing to playing a team sport. I joined Glevum to get fit but it’s the community feel that has kept me there. The atmosphere really is superb. I had always thought that CrossFit was for the elite but in reality Glevum caters for all.
