YES!! The coaches are amazing at modifying things. Every workout is be modified to find the right amount of hard. The coaches can change the movement, pick the right weight for you, change running to rowing, or even come up with a completely different workout that fits your needs. You may think this is going out of our way, but we do it nearly every single class and you probably don’t even notice it if it’s not you! The coaches can often tell what to modify for you with but sometimes we don’t know so make sure to speak up if there is something you’re not comfortable with.
Here are some examples of workouts we’ve modified:
Example 1: Jaime joined our gym and couldn’t lift his arms over his shoulders due to a war injury decades ago. If it was an overhead or pullup day, he came anyways and we simply gave him other things to work on. He worked out with us for several years and made amazing progress.
Example 2: Running is a great exercise but it can be hard on the body for beginners. When you join with us you’ll be ramped up slowly with distances and intensity. Several folks simply cannot run due to certain conditions. That’s OK! We have rowers, bikes, airdynes, ski machines and everything to give you that same cardio workout. Also keep in mind if you can’t run you shouldn’t be doing jump ropes OR box jumps. We’ll come up with other things for you to do instead.
