You Are In Shape Enough to Start

▲ 

It’s scary to start a new fitness program—we are with you on that.

You’d love to find a gym that gets you real results that LAST. Though you’ve considered it, all you can think about is how long it’s been since you were “on track” and how hard it’s going to be. You’re not sure you can handle the workouts.

Sure, our workouts can be hard, but over time (and not much time), you start to get the hang of it and find things you CAN do really well.

What you find at EBCF is:

1 – The workouts are just like real life

Getting out of a chair, picking up your bag, walking upstairs… these

are things you do in real life, and our workouts focus on THOSE

movements to help get you fit. If you can do those basic things, you

can do our workouts.

2 – You start slowly

You learn how to move BEFORE adding too much weight or intensity. We don’t want you to lift too much or go too fast at the beginning. Our goal is to teach you the mechanics, establish consistency with light weights and slower workouts until you feel comfortable enough to add speed or weight.

3 – The focus is on SHOWING UP

Until you can manage to show up at least 3 times per week, it doesn’t

matter how fast you run, how much you lift, or what you can do. The

program is focused on building good habits before adding intensity.

Show up enough and you end up reaping amazing results.

4 – Most of our members started where you are



It’s hard to believe when you watch them now, but so many of our

best athletes had never touched a barbell, couldn’t do a push

up, and had 20-50 pounds to lose when they started. Ask any of

them where they were when they started and many of them will say, “Right where you are.”

5 – No mirrors, no judgment

We don’t care about how you look, how fast you go, or how much you lift unless YOU do. This goes for coaches AND athletes. The other folks in your classes are working so hard to improve themselves that they don’t have time to judge you. In fact, it’s the opposite … because most of us have been there, our community is all about supporting you in showing up, working hard, and achieving whatever goals are important to YOU.

6 – You’ll track and celebrate progress

You’ll notice that we put times or weights up on the board when you do your workout. We also encourage you to track them yourselves on SugarWOD.  However, this is only because we want you to see how far you’ve come. If you do one push-up on Day 1, then on Day 90 you do 30, we/you want to recognize and acknowledge that progress. You only get that if you track your progress! (Note, this is not a requirement, some people are perfectly happy to never track a result and we support that, too.)

7 – You won’t do anything you don’t want to

Does your knee, shoulder, elbow, or neck bother you? No problem! We’ll change the workout so you don’t have to use them. Does the idea of running 400 meters scare the bejesus out of you? Let’s skip it and have you hop on a rower!  The goal is for you to get a good workout that fits YOU every single time. Your coaches are there to make the workout work for YOU.

8 – What would you do otherwise?

How would you “get in shape” to do a workout program that promises to get you in shape? Would you run? Walk? Do Pilates or yoga? Just diet more? How would you know if you were in shape enough?

The goal of our program is to get you in the best shape of your life NO MATTER WHERE YOU START. If this is your goal, why would you start with anything else? Click below and book your free intro.
