Exciting Changes for FitNow & FitCamp!
If you would have told me a little over a year ago that I’d have nearly 300 people come through FitCamp and have 50 clients attend FitCamp five days a week, I would have laughed and said, “You’re crazy!” But, that’s exactly what has happened. Because FitCamp has continued to grow, I am making changes that will take FitNow to the next level. This includes a name change, new location and new programs.
First, I am making a subtle name change to reflect the mission and purpose of building an exercise community through group fitness programs. The name is changing from FitNow Personal Fitness Training to FitNow Group Fitness. Along with the name change, the tagline will be “Building Strength In Numbers”.
Beginning September 4th, FitNow Group Fitness will be operating out of a 2,000 sq. ft. warehouse located at 1022 Kendall Ct., Bldg. 2, Ste. 1 in Westfield. Although the space is smaller than what we had at Speed Athletics, it will be more efficient and has more amenities. The large overhead door opens up into a very large parking lot that we’ll be able to use for a variety of activities. The building is located just about a block away from the Monon Trail extension that runs north of 169th Street. And, I’ll be able to bring back evening programs and eventually add noon, after-school and weekend classes.
Evening FitCamp Returns – 6:00pm – 7:00pm
Beginning September 4th, the evening FitCamp class returns from 6:00p-7:00p Monday through Friday. This is a viable option for people that aren’t early risers or who prefer to work off their workday stress.
BlastCamp Debuts – 7:15pm – 7:45pm
For those who want to mix things up, reach a short-term fitness goal , or aren’t ready to commit to a monthly program like FitCamp, BlastCamp is the program for you. BlastCamp, a Ten-Day Assault On Body Fat, consists of nine very intense 30-minute workouts (plus one workout on your own) spread out over 11 days. Each session which starts at 7:15pm will be jam-packed with multi-functional exercises that will burn fat, build muscle and improve cardiovascular endurance using a combination of bodyweight exercises, dumbbells, kettlebells, medicine balls, and other equipment. You’ll experience ArmBlast, LegBlast, Butt&GutBlast, CardioBlast, BodyBlast, and even an occasional workout that may take us to another location if weather permits. BlastCamp will begin on day one with a 1-hour orientation/workout and will conclude on day 10 with a 1-hour workout, awards ceremony and Q&A session. The individual(s) with the highest point total based on overall weight loss and percentage of fat loss will receive a prize! New BlastCamp sessions will begin at 7:15 pm. the first and third Monday of each month except the third week of November and third week of December to allow for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Cost: $75 ($45 for FitCampers)
KBCamp – 8:00pm – 8:45pm
If you want a challenging workout that will kick your butt and make body fat turn and run the other way, then you’ll want to sign up for our KBCamp kettlebell workout. As of August 10th, I will have completed my kettlebell personal trainer certification from the WKC (World Kettlebell Club) in Chicago. I’ll then be instructing 45-minute KBCamp sessions every Tuesday and Thursday evening at 8:00pm for four weeks starting the 1st Tuesday of the month. The first class of each 4-week session will include an orientation on proper kettlebell technique and safety. Cost: $65 ($40 for FitCampers). Drop-In Rate: $10 (cash only) space permitting. Punch cards will also be available at a discounted rate of $80 for 10 sessions. People must attend one orientation session before being allowed to participate as a drop-in client or purchase a punch card. Orientation sessions may be included as a part of FitCamp or held randomly depending on interest.
Over the coming months, I hope to add additional classes and programs that meet more specific needs. This will greatly depend on interest, enrollment and availability of additional trainers who hold specialty certifications. These programs would include:
- Cardio Kickboxing
- Running Programs (training for distance runs)
- Mud Run Training
Humbled, Grateful and Blessed
As you can see, there are a lot of changes coming. This will take time and patience as we all adapt to the new facility, programs and schedules. But, I envision FitNow Group Fitness to grow into a company that can be replicated and franchised in the coming couple of years. I appreciate and thank everyone that has helped to make FitNow a successful and growing business. This includes my family, friends, personal trainers and clients for their continued support. Most of all, I want to thank God for blessing me and giving me the vision, health and tools I need to build a business that can help others build stronger, healthier bodies.
