Beginning February 1 we will be changing our membership structure to simplify how you access the gym and the coaches. The new membership will include all specialty/premium classes offered at your selected gym. Specialty classes will include powerlifting, run club, mobility and anything that is not just a "CrossFit WOD" New classes that are still in the works include boxing/striking and Olympic weightlifting.
In addition to access to all types of classes, these monthly memberships will include some additional services, outlined as follows:
Under these memberships a class is a class, powerlifting or running or CrossFit, it does not matter.
"Scaled" - $130/month: 10 classes per month, access to specialty classes, phone and email coaching
"Rx" - $161/month: 14 classes per month, access to specialty classes, free tshirt, phone and email coaching, 10% off events and seminars, 5% off products
"Rx+" - $195/month: Unlimited classes, access to specialty classes, access to both gyms, free tshirt, 4 skill sessions* per year, phone and email coaching, 20% off events and seminars, 10% off products
"Family Rx+" (2 people) - $310/month: Unlimited classes, access to specialty classes, access to both gyms, 2 free tshirts, 8 skill sessions* per year, phone and email coaching, 20% off events and seminars, 10% off products
*skill session is a private 30 min session with a coach to work on any skill of your choosing
note: there will be an additional charge (5%) for not using auto pay
Class packages (punch cards) - $160 for 10 ($16/class), $280 for 20 ($14/class) - include phone and email coaching
This is obviously a large jump, but necessary due to types of programs and facilities we are adding and our desire to try and keep a high coach:athlete ratio.
What does this mean for you:
1. Current members who wish to upgrade and have access to specialty classes will have a window of opportunity (14 days) to lock in at lower prices indefinitely (Scaled - $117, Rx - $145, Rx+ - $175, Partner Rx+ - $280). If you choose to bypass this window, and decide to upgrade later, you will not have access to these prices.
2. Current members who do not wish to upgrade, and have no desire to ever take a specialty class. You will not be required to upgrade. We will not adjust your membership rate. You will still have access to the facilities and the coaches, also by phone and email, and business will remain as usual. If, down the line, you decide that you want to get involved in powerlifting, run club, or another specialty class then you will have to upgrade to the new membership levels, at then current prices.
3. Punch Card Holders - you may purchase as many punch cards as you wish before Feb 1. On Feb 2, the punch card price will go up to the above posted values.
We will still offer discounts as listed on our pricing page.
Saturday classes and open gym will still be included in your membership. If a Saturday class is at a location you are not a primary member of, you may still attend that class.
What do you need to do:
If you want to upgrade (you want to go to powerlifting, running, mobility, etc..) - advise us by email firstname.lastname@example.org to cancel your current membership and what membership level you want from this point forward.
If you do not want to upgrade - ensure that your membership is set where you would like it, we will not adjust it. It will continue to renew and be active, but you will not be able to switch to another package. Any switch after the prices change will put you at the upgraded membership level.
If you want to lock in your rate at any current membership level, it needs to be done before February 1
If you have any questions, please see Jeff or Mollie.
It continues to be our goal to provide the highest level of coaching and service possible. We are grateful for all of you and keep up the awesome job!
9am Powerlifting Fundamentals with Rae
Get ready for your upgraded membership to kick in by attending Powerlifting Fundamentals this Sunday, January 29th at 9am. Class will be held in the Uptown gym, sign up on MindBody. Afterwards, come to Powerlifting class at 10am and stay for Mobility at 11:30am. Questions? Email email@example.com.
Powerlifting Fundamentals introduces the basic warmups, lifts, and accessory exercises used in Powerlifting class. It is a prerequisite for the regular Powerlifting class and open to anyone who has already finished regular Fundamentals classes. Make room in your schedule to come this Sunday because the next Fundamentals will probably be after Mardi Gras. If you can't make it, you can schedule a one-on-one (or small group) with Rae.
Normal Powerlifting class times are Tuesdays at 7:30pm, Fridays at 5:30pm, Saturdays at 9am, and Sundays at 10am. This is a structured program, so consistently coming to as many as you can is key to achieving your SMART goals.
