Bluecoats is an outstanding, high-end facility which offers everything from gym and swim to racket sports and group exercise classes. Bluecoats indoor gym is kitted out with the latest Matrix equipment. Whilst the outdoor gym space is packed full of world-leading Escape Fitness equipment. The key customer demand and focus at the moment, is to increase the level of programming delivered within the functional spaces of the club in order to elevate the member experience. With varying degrees of abilities across the fitness team, standardisation of skillsets was required to ensure every member of the group could teach and deliver in these spaces at the highest of qualities.
Excelsior was approached to work with the existing Escape Fitness Move It programming whilst upskilling the team in running small group training, boot camps and gym-based boxing practices within the outdoor gym space.
Over an intensive two-day period, the knowledge, confidence and practical delivery skills were worked upon. In line with this, a better understanding of the members and the communication skills required to engage them effectively was covered.
“Andy is a brilliant experienced trainer! The team have worked with Andy on several occasions now and have learnt a great deal from the sessions we have had. Andy always ensures to understand the assignment in full, how our club works and immerses himself amongst the team to ensure he gets the very best out of them within the training days. The team cannot speak highly enough of Andy and the skills they have learnt and have now applied to the small group training sessions we offer here at Bluecoats. Big thanks to Andy, no doubt we will see you again soon!”
