James Fitzgerald

Coaching to Create a Winning Service Team (fitness stream)

In this conversation topic James will discuss ideas on what success means for the coach, client, AND owner of the intense group fitness model and it will also offer some new ideas on what CAN be.

The initial starting point on the craze of intense group fitness was actually NOT for a group. It was designed as a new interesting model on intensity in exercise with solid basic movements done in a new, game chaining style. “Do it in your garage” was the initial mantra. “Getting together with your buddies” was the feel. It was NOT organization on HOW to make the gym work with less able people. The evolution was created based on economics and cultural shifts in “everything now” thinking. This does not make it “right”; if RIGHT is measured as consistency and engagement and measurable improvements in fitness.
