In order to get ‘FIT’ you need to find the right FIT

 

Today I have the pleasure to introduce to my readers Next Phase Fitness.  I had the opportunity to participate in their Elevate 60 class which was taught by Doug Frantzen, co-owner and trainer.  The goal of Elevate 60 is to optimize loss of calories and build muscle for those of various fitness backgrounds.   A wide range of training routines and trainers are available to assure that your specific fitness goals are met.

The environment of the gym was warm and welcoming, not only by the staff but also by those who were taking part in the class.  The positive environment made me want to push harder during the class.

The heart rate monitored class motivated me to push to the next level and proved to be quite competitive for me.  I was making sure I was on par with Mr. Frantzen 🙂 (Dougs dad!).

Next Phase Fitness is truly focused on the client.  They want to know who you are, what you do and what your goal is as far as exercise is concerned.  This new facility has the potential to grow and provide excellent service to all who participate in their classes.

So, let’s get to the reason why I am writing these blogs of gyms in the Loudoun area.  We are looking to FIT you with the RGHT fitness facility so that you can get ‘FIT.’

Next Phase Fitness is great for:

  1. Persons with an intermediate to advanced fitness background

  2. Persons who love group workouts and the camaraderie of those around them

  3. Persons who are interested in attending a fitness facility that does not have contracts

  4. Persons who hold a clean environment near and dear to their heart (like me)

  5. Persons who want to be pushed to the next level of fitness

  6. Persons that want to be in an workout environment where the instructors and owners are looking out for your well being. 

In an effort to enhance their knowledge on movement, Next Phase Fitness and Missing Link Physical Therapy will be collaborating to introduce a class for persons who are interested on learning the ‘Basic Movements Required for Exercise’.

In order to get ‘FIT’ you need to find the right FIT

Trouble finding a gym that fits you, your personality, your needs, your time, your location?  The list goes on and on.  

Well I am here to help you!

Like so many of you I have had the same problem over the years.  Signing up in the new fad gym and only attending a handful of times.  I have compiled a list of excuses stating why I cannot remain with one gym; and I finally figured out that the major issue was finding a gym that motivates me, addresses my needs and fits my personality.  Like a pair of jeans from Banana Republic or Zara the fit is going to be different based on your size and particular taste, these are the same challenges encountered with finding the gym that meets your needs.

Here are some personalities I have unfolded with most gyms:

  1. Culture
  2. Skilled and qualified personnel
  3. Goal focused guidance
  4. Commitment to clients
  5. Excellence in service
  6. Client Centered

In my quest to help you find the best fit in order to get ‘FIT’, I have decided to visit and work out at many of the gyms in Loudoun County.   By doing this I can share with you my opinion on the personalities of these gyms.  This list of gyms is not limited to the Life Times and the Golds gyms; the small boutique gyms will also be highlighted in my reviews.

Your job as a reader is to tell me about your gym’s personality and refer me to your gym.

Many may ask why do I think that I am qualified to share my opinion on gyms.  Well, I am a Physical Therapist who has seen patients who attend gyms that don’t fit their personality and/or meet their needs.  Consequently, the outcome is either injury or not achieving a specific fitness goal.

Let the games begin!!  You will have my first review in a week.  The goal of this blog is:  FIND THE RIGHT FIT IN ORDER GET FIT!!
