You may know that when people express an interest in what we do down here at RISE, I usually speak to them on the phone.

Answer any questions they’ve got and help them get all the information they need to make an informed decision if the programme is a good fit for them or not.

And it’s a chance for me to see if they’re a good fit for the programme.

Sometimes people are pretty much made their mind up to join before we speak.

Sometimes they’re looking at a number of different options.

The other day I spoke to someone who had a few calls and visits lined up to a few different facilities in the area.

He asked me “What do I get if I join you?”

I replied “You get me. And my team. And we’ll help you get better lasting results than you’ll get by yourself or anywhere else”.

As you may have guessed from the blog title he responded with “Well, no one else answered like that”.

Which probably isn’t a surprise.

Most of the Fitness Industry sell what they do based purely on the specifics of what they offer.

The equipment you get access to.

The number and timing of the sessions or classes they offer.

Details of their app, Facebook group, check-ins and similar.

And all of this is, of course, relevant.

But, from my experience, that’s not really what’s going to make the difference.

If that was solely what people needed, they would have gotten the results the last time they tried that or something similar.

What I, and my team, are really good at is helping change the conversation that goes on in people’s heads.

The thoughts, beliefs and opinions around exercise, eating and their lives in general.

Because, if that’s all the same as it was last time they tried something similar……….

Nothing will change.

So, if you a member, and not getting the results that you desire………

Let’s look less engaging in the specifics of what we do (ie: just doing Sessions)………

And let’s look more at engaging with us.

If you’re not a member and you’re ready to try something that isn’t just the same old, same old and that will get you some amazing results (with a money back guarantee) and let you see where you can go from there, then apply now for our 4 week Transformation Programme at
