We know people have a million reasons for training with us but the single reason we are driven to create such a positive and intense experience is to be able to enjoy more of the world when we aren’t in the gym. As a Colorado founded community we know that the work that gets done at Manic translates into more fulfilling experiences that the outdoors, sport, and life have to offer.
Train in to adventure so can…
Make it more enjoyable. Instead of looking at the ground because you are so gassed at the top of the mountain, imagine if you fitness kept you stronger longer. Imagine being able to take in all of the beauty around you without worrying about not being able to complete the task of afraid that you won’t be able to walk for the next week. Fitness doesn’t necessary make everything easy but it makes everything much easier!
Go farther and longer. One of the coolest things about being more fit for adventure is that you can do more with the same amount of time. Whether it’s paddling down the river or biking across the canyon, you’ll be able to see more. Having more experiences is having more life with your time.
Do it with the people you love. If you are a parent or if your peer group is younger. Even if you peer group is aging but staying in great shape, doing the things you love with the people you love will always be a driving force and the primary why for so many who workout at Manic. It’s not always about you, getting fit and taking care of yourself is for people who want you around just as much.
Why do you train?
Do you believe in our idea of what it means to be fit out of the gym?
We hope SO!
So many people never take the first step. To walk through the doors of Manic and give at least one workout a try. For those who do, we want you to know after seeing and working with thousands of clients and sessions that we know what you might be thinking.
Will I be able to keep up with everyone else? What if I don’t know how to do something? Will it be embarrassing if I am really out of shape? Overweight? Older? I have an injury that makes certain things hard, should I still come in?
Let us answer some of these questions for you right now!
Will I be able to keep up with everyone else?
Who knows? It doesn’t even matter. Can you imagine a scenario where 20 completely different people all had the exact same fitness level? It’s impossible. On top of that, different people have different stresses, levels of sleep, and a million other things that make us all different. That is what is so cool about be able to go and train with so many different types of people everyday. You may try to keep up with a couple people that are good at certain things, learn from a couple others with other movements, and so on and so on. The learning never stops and there is zero judgment here at Manic. Knowing that less than one percent ever come through the door puts you in a class all it’s own!
What if I don’t know how to do something?
That’s why we have coaches. Our coaches coach. They don’t just set the workout, sit back, and watch. We want you to continue to be challenged both physically and mentally and sometimes that means you will feel lost and frustrated. It’s okay. Everyone comes out the other side stronger.
Will it be embarrassing if I am really out of shape? Overweight? Older?
No mirrors, no ego’s, no judgment. It’s built into our ethos and that will never change. Out of shape? That’s fine. We can ease you into a level that works until you can go harder based on YOUR fitness. Overweight, we don’t care. This may be that first step to getting somewhere you are happy with again. Older? We have plenty of 60 and 70+ year olds. We modify where needed and gear to their needs. Like we do for everyone at Manic. So there you go, three more excuses down the drain!
I have an injury that makes certain things hard, should I still come in?
Absolutely. Sometimes, injuries give us a chance to work on something that needs work anyway. We take great pride in modifying training for injuries and limitations. We may only need to modify one or two movements or most of the workout. We will do whatever we can to keep you moving, happy, and healthy!
