Things have been on the move here at VOLT FITNESS, and we’ve been amazed at how a few changes have made a big difference. What “wows” us even more, is that our client base has grown amidst the flying dust and numerous “wet paint” signs. When asked, what keeps you coming, most have commented that it’s the atmosphere in the gym. We’ve been told that the staff is friendly and quickly become like family. Clients don’t feel intimidated but motivated. They find a friend from the ownership down to the trainers. The writer of this post can attest to that. We do have something of a cheers atmosphere here.
Next reason, is our knowledgeable staff. Our trainers know what they’re doing. You won’t find any meatheads here, mindlessly yelling orders out to their clients. There is a trust built between the clients and their trainers. The front desk personnel has in fact seen a drastic change in many of the people who come through our doors and its not just a physical change they see. There is a confidence boost, there is excitement when the clients see their trainers and that same excitement is heard in the voices of the trainers as they great their next appointment with a hollering “WOOO!!! YOU READY?! LETS DO THIS!”. Occasionally some clapping accompanies the holler. (Get the image of a clapping gorilla out of your head.)
If the author of this post didn’t work here, they would join the gym themselves. In this person’s experience, gyms aren’t necessarily the most fun and inviting place to be. The tightly grouped machines, blaring club thumping music, the super cut absurdly fit members anointing the equipment with their glorious sweat, and the overly pseudo enthusiastic (or blatantly apathetic) staff members don’t exactly scream “please, come in and use us to drop some lard”.
Now I know many may read this and think “GYMS AREN’T SUPPOSED TO BE FRIENDLY THEY’RE SUPPOSED TO BE HARDCORE RAAAAAWWWWRRR (insert gym rage here)”; but if you’re just starting out and feel completely insecure (which many do, no matter what size, shape or level of fitness they are), none of that is encouraging. The rows of machines give the sense of a fitness factory, where the unfit rodents line up and mount the treadmills that are tightly packed together, and power the facility while doing their best to tune out the fact that there may be someone right next to them putting in double the amount of effort they are. Excuse me while I catch my breath.
Although this will sound like a catchphrase on ‘roids, VOLT FITNESS puts the personal touch in personal training.
Even with the advent of Small Group Personal Training, everyone still gets individual attention. The best phenomenon we’ve seen is that those who were once strangers, become friends in these small groups. Who knew? You can work with strangers and find friends as well as a great workout that wasn’t mass produced.
So if you’re in Bergen County, and need a gym where you feel free to get fit and would like to make some friends along the way, give us a call and come in for a free session. Or just come in to say hi.
