I’ve made a lot of changes.
Because I’m fed up.
Fed up with the state that my profession is now in.
Fed up with the two-week non-failure courses that are churning out ‘qualified’ trainers who have no idea how to deal with your needs and goals.
Fed up with the trainers who have a year or two’s ‘experience’ working at corporate gyms who proclaim themselves experts and ‘master trainers’.
Fed up with plague of ‘fitness models’ whose only skill lies in good genetics and a bag full of chemical aids yet pass themselves off as ‘online trainers’ and relieve you of your hard-earned money in return for the generic programmes that they send to every one of their well-meaning, but unfortunate, clients.
Fed up with the monster that the ‘fitness industry’ has become, a monster that cares nothing for health, fitness, or education, but cares everything for turning a quick profit by exploiting your enthusiasm.
That’s why I’ve stripped down the new look website to the bare essentials.
It’s why I’ve commited renewed energy into the mission of Sparta to spread the word of functional training to as many people as possible.
Thats great, Craig, but what does that mean in real terms?
It means that, unlike every chain gym and normal studio you visit, every trainer who works here is a specialist in their field, from prehab and mobility, calisthenics, yoga, flexibility, and pre/post natal training, through to the hardstyle kettlebell private and group sessions taught by our RKC and SFG certified instructors.
It also means that Sparta is dedicating more studio time to Group PT so we can reach as many people as possible. Don’t get confused – these aren’t the classes that you’ll find masquerading as Group PT elsewhere, these are individual programmes that develop and progress as you do.
I realise that some of the things I’ve said above may offend people.
Do I care?
Because if you’re offended, you’re part of the problem, and I only deal with solutions.
If what I’ve said resonates with you, then firstly you have my apologies on behalf of the good professionals in my industry that you’ve been subjected to the dark side of our world.
Welcome to Sparta.
