Before we get in to it, here is some context for our thinking. This is our mission statement in our coaching manual:
“Why” we do what we do:
Everything we do at CrossFit Avon comes from our wish to transform the lives of our members. We love our members. Our motivation and approach comes from a genuine care for their wellbeing.
To achieve our mission we need to offer the most effective solutions to our members to help them move towards their goals and keep them training for the long term. One of the most important parts of any journey is the beginning. It has been clear to us for a while now that those athletes who started their journey with one-to-one sessions, to cover the fundamental movements, tend to make better overall progress towards their goals. Further to this, athletes who continued to receive regular one-to-one contact with a coach, trained more consistently and made amazing progress in the long term.
So, this is exactly what all new members will experience at the start of their fitness journey with us, from mid-February onwards. All new members will complete our Fundamentals Programme one-to-one with one of our coaches. Once completed they will move on to a hybrid membership giving them access to their ‘Coach for Life’ on a regular basis. Our future memberships will reflect this with a variety of options covering their monthly classes and preferred frequency of one-to-one sessions.
Existing members will have the option of transitioning on to a hybrid membership if they think this would benefit them. The one-to-one sessions could be used to set goals, assist with nutrition, work on technique, address mobility issues or work on weaknesses. But don’t worry, if this isn’t for you, your membership will continue as it is now. If you are interested please get in touch with Cathie.
SPECIAL OFFER: Our normal Personal Training rate is now £48 per hour but we will be offering the first 5 member referrals at only £36 per hour for their fundamentals. Don’t forget you will also get a half price month of membership for every person you refer! If you know anyone who might be interested please pass their details on to Cathie and she will get in touch with them.
If you have any questions about these changes please speak to Jon or Cathie.
