There are a ton of other reasons, but the bottom line is: You aren’t getting the results you want!
How do you get the performance you want, and the body you want without it being such a chore? All it takes is a change of focus and the right structure to help you succeed.
Change of focus.
Stop thinking of your workout as WORK, and focus on SKILL and PERFORMANCE.
Running on a treadmill is WORK…learning how to climb a rope, do a proper squat, or swing a kettle bell is learning a new SKILL. Losing 10 lbs feels like WORK, and is not nearly as fun as getting your first pull up (or 20th), or improving your time on a 500m row. Focusing on physical PERFORMANCE will not only give you new athletic ability, but it will make losing 10 lbs a breeze.
A focus on developing skills and improving your performance will bring out your inner athlete. The more you train like an athlete, the more you will look like an athlete.
Ok, so you have a goal and a reason WHY you are doing what you’re doing, and have a new focus on making yourself the best athlete you can be…now what?
You need to know exactly WHAT to do, you need to be shown HOW to do it, you need SUPPORT to help you, and it has to be in the right ENVIRONMENT.
This is where our program comes in. We give you tools and structure, and environment you need in order to be successful.
Our main focus on helping you live better through fitness, and we produce results for you with expert coaching in a community of motivated and supportive training partners.
You see, willpower doesn’t work, and as much as we believe we are in control…it’s tough to stay motivated at the end of a long day when you know you have to fight traffic and find parking to go work out at a crowded gym AND come up with your own workout routine.
When you become a Thames athlete, this is how your experience will look.
You’ll find our gym easily at Cannon Workshops by West India Quay and park effortlessly (and for free) in our lot. Coaching a squat when you walk in, you’ll be greeted with a smile by our staff and other athletes.
You’ll notice how clean and well-maintained the gym is as you sign in and get ready to join the session in our member chill out area. Over the next 60 mins, you will be warmed up, stretched, and coached through the movements of the day.
This is followed by a workout and a wrap up. Your coach will be there to ensure proper form, range of motion, and intensity, helping you scale to fit your needs and ability level. Because you hit a personal best that day, you ring the PB bell and everyone lets out a big cheer.
You’ll wrap up with some mobility and say goodbye to your friends and training partners feeling exhausted but accomplished for finishing another tough workout.
You’ll go home having done something you never thought you could, and feeling better than when you come in.
