Why should I do the GRAVITY Foundation Course?

A: The new GRAVITY Foundation Course is a comprehensive and complete course that gives the attendee a broader understanding of how to be a successful GRAVITY Trainer and/or operate a profitable business with Total Gym. It improves upon and amalgamates the previous PT and Group courses, including new information on multi-client training, a completely revised exercise library, fresh new sample programs based on SMA adaptability as well as covering detailed business and marketing principles for successful implementation and promotion. Any trainer can benefit from course revision, however this course is even more powerful than a simple revision because it is based on the most modern training concepts and as a result can dramatically improve your business.

Day One: The course material from Personal Training has been revised and improved upon to provide a more comprehensive understanding of the personal training component of Total Gym. The new exercise library is based on the Total Gym body position (previously muscle group) and now outlines a clearer understanding of how to instruct clients and create effective programming. It includes the new “SMA”(Strength, Mobility, Awareness) concept for adaptability and shows how to develop effective progression in your programming. It also covers how to train multiple clients from a personal training or team training perspective.

Day Two: The course material from Group Training has again been revised and improved in this course. Not interested in group exercise? This material is still incredibly powerful in teaching personal trainers the different components and possibilities of training with Total Gym. Personal Trainers can learn from this section how to apply group exercise within a team training environment – with or without music. The important part for personal trainers is to understand how to direct and lead a group of people on Total Gym. Following on from this, you will join in a comprehensive business section that teaches you how to successfully model and market your business, who you should be attracting and how to incorporate programming for success.
