What will we be doing at your Meetup?
We will be performing a workout that consists of weight lifting, bodyweight exercises, and functional equipment.
What will it be like?
I try to focus on making strength gains while increasing work capacity with circuits and short rest periods. The workouts will be tailored to the skill level of the members who show up. I do not intend to overwork anyone.
Who should come?
Anyone interested in losing weight and getting into better shape.
Do I have to be a LA Fitness gym member to attend?
No. I have signed up for an account that allows me to bring two people with me to work out. This is the reason why the RSVP list is only for 3 members.
If you are a member of LA Fitness, please let me know so I can add you to the RSVP list and open up another spot for someone else who isn't a member.
Do members need to bring anything?
Members are strongly encouraged to bring water for hydration and a towel for the pool of sweat that will form in various places on your body. :)
I must state clearly that I am not a fitness professional so if you don't have a basic understanding of how to exercise, please see a physical trainer or do research prior to attending these meetups.
How long will the Meetup be?
Even though the meetup information states 8am-9:30am, I do not like to work out past an hour. The goal is to complete as much as possible within that time frame depending on how we all feel.
Given the possible circumstances that there may be more than one other member attending, I figure allowing an hour and a half window gives enough time for us to focus on each person attending. This may be subject to change.
Is it okay to arrive late?
I want to reiterate that I like to get as much done as possible in the smallest time frame. If you show up late, you run the risk of not being present for part of the workout.
Why is there a fee?
The meetup fee serves a couple of purposes: 1) it helps me pay for the fees related to Meetup.com & 2) it prevents members from RSVPing and then being a no-show. In this situation, no-shows will be extremely unfair to other members and I must do whatever I can do prevent it from happening.
