Private Coaching – Sun 11.05.17
CrossFit is not a franchise. CrossFit is an affiliate agreement. If you are certified in CrossFit, you can also submit an annual fee to use the CrossFit name. The beauty of an affiliate is you can run your gym however you want. Teach whatever you want.
The Compound (CrossFit Vacaville North) differs from most gyms in our area. We have been around for over seven years, with many years before in the fitness industry, and have learnt the best practices. One of those “best practices” is Private Coaching.
You all have individualized needs that require personalized attention. The Compound understands this and tailors its instruction to best suit you. When you start at the Compound, we ramp you up to regular CrossFit Classes through Private Coaching, rather than just dropping you straight into classes.
We are not an ordinary group exercise class or a boot camp facility. We provide you simple and effective training for a healthy life. In order to do this, you will work with your private coach and complete at least 5 one-on-one or two-on-one personal training sessions that will properly prepare you for the demands of group classes. During this time, and even upon graduation, you and your coach will constantly monitor your fitness progress to help you achieve your goals.
Learning movements that are required for improved fitness – movements like squats, snatches and pull ups – take time, as does improving your mobility, your endurance, your speed and your power.
We used to throw people into group classes right away, and we tried a small group “onramp” for a while, but we found both of these to be a recipe for failure. Students weren’t prepared; they didn’t move well; they didn’t understand their capabilities; they over-trained; or they were simply too intimidated to even show up to a class.
Improving your fitness is a slow process. Everyone has different strengths and weaknesses when they show up at our doors. Some students struggle with mobility, others with stability, others yet come to us two months after having knee surgery and need to be tended with care. And on the other end of the spectrum, some athletes arrive at our door well conditioned with an extensive athletic background.
The point is we all have different needs when we start a new strength and conditioning program. It doesn’t make sense to throw you right into classes before you have properly learned the movements. So at our school, by the time you graduate to group classes, you’ll have a good understanding of 20-30 movements, and you will know exactly how to scale each movement if you’re not yet able to master everything. And more importantly you will have a relationship with a private coach, who will be with you for life.
