Personal training, made accessible for all!
Personal training is one of those things that everyone would benefit from, but people don't know it yet. After years of managing a local gym and training my own clients, I've learned what works, what doesn't, and how to best support you in feeling like the bad ass that you are. For the Alley Gym, this means that I want to really know the people that I train. I want to know your dogs name, which knee is creaky, and what movements bring a smile to your face. I'm not interested in running large classes or shuttling people through a workout; I want this to change your life. This community is important to me and I want every person that joins our space to feel the love.
All that lovey-dovey stuff aside, I also know that most people don't have the opportunity to experience personal training because it is cost prohibitive. So, I set up a space and a system that makes this level of personalization more accessible to the average person. (and pssst, if it's still out of reach, give me a shout. From the depths of my soul I believe that health is for every body so we will chat and see if there's something we can work out).
Sounds like you're in the right place? Cool, here are the details.....
What's in it for me?
What I offer at The Alley Gym is completely personalized attention and programming to achieve your goals in this season of your life. Not some program that was written for thousands of people to complete, but I actually sit down and program each month for you based on your progress from the previous month, any injuries you have, your preferred level of intensity, your favorite movements, and your big picture goals. On top of that, all clients will receive four new workouts to do from home each month with video tutorials, a printable monthly habit calendar where you can set sustainable goals and watch your progress, and weekly check-ins to make sure that we are on the same page. I am by your side every step of this process to support you in whatever ways you need to be successful.
How much does it cost?
No minimums, no registration fees, just pay for the sessions you will use. We will sit down together and map out the upcoming month and I will send you an invoice to be paid before the month's first session. All sessions must be used within the calendar month.
Note: you need to attend at least 2 sessions per month to get access to the home-workouts and save your time slot.
What if I don't know anyone I want to workout with, but I want to split a session to save some moolah?
No worries, feel free to reach out to the awesome ladies in our facebook group and see if you can find a partner! You're also welcome to invite your friends to the group. The more the merrier!
When can I come in?
Current Winter Availability
Tuesday- 9:30 and 10:30am
Thursday- 6:30 and 9:30am, 5:30 and 7:30pm
Saturday- 8am and 11am
What if I have to miss a session?
Life happens! I promise my feelings won't be hurt. At the beginning of each month, we will sit down and look at your schedule so that I can try to accommodate any days that you need to switch around. We can reschedule sessions with 24 hour notice but all sessions still must be used before the end of the month. Any cancellations that happen within 12 hours of your start time are a full forfeit. If you are working out with a partner, you can reschedule your session as a group, but I cannot accommodate individual makeup sessions. When in doubt, just ask! We're all human here and open communication is key.
What does a typical session look like?
All sessions are 50 minutes long and start with a warm up, some skill work (barbell, balance beam, rope climb, and other specific skills) and then a couple rounds of heart pumping movements. The beauty of these personalized sessions is that I know exactly who will be in class so I will be programming around your specific goals, skills, and struggles. It's all about you baby!
Can you help me with diet, stress, home workouts, and life outside the gym?
Your hour or three at the gym with me will give you the foundation from which to build. You will learn proper form, technique, and skills to prevent injury and get a great workout. I am there to hold your hand through new movements and open your eyes to new ideas. Don't forget there are 10,080 minutes in a week though! This is what makes The Alley Gym truly unique. To work through all the other opportunities you have in your life to build health, I pull from my training as a board certified Health Coach.
As a member of The Alley Gym, you will receive a monthly printable calendar. We will talk about creating meaningful and sustainable goals based on your wants and needs and you are always welcome to book in for an extra 30-minute session to review your calendar. The magic happens in your daily habits so let's make sure that you are moving in the right direction towards your goals!
I'd love to workout with you but I live in Timbuktu!
First of all. Awesome, expect a house guest pronto! Second, let's talk about virtual training. We schedule sessions and meet virtually using a program called appear.in. You will be able to see me to explain movements and direct the pacing, and I can see you to check your form and keep you moving. Payments, scheduling, cancellations, everything, runs exactly the same as an in-person session, but you are joining me from the comfort of your own living room, office, or garage. I will create your program based on the equipment you have available to you, although I recommend a minimum of a set of dumbbells and a resistance band. Virtual training is great for people who travel for work, live outside of Denver but are looking for a body positive trainer, or simply can't or don't want to leave the house.
