I truly believe that fitness can be a vessel for amazing change in your life.
It isn’t about ass, abs, ego, and PRs.
It’s how the things we do inside the gym translate into other areas of your life.
You are capable of being strong.
You can do hard things.
You can prioritize yourself and practice self-care.
You can surround yourself with amazing people who are driven and health conscious.
You can display humility and adopt a growth mindset.
Most people coming into District H Strength & Fitness tend to have similar goals in that they want to shed a few pounds, get stronger, get out of some sort of nagging pain, or just want to feel better and have more energy.
Very rarely do I hear, “I’m just here for challenging workouts.”
Hundreds of individuals have come through the doors of District H over the last decade looking for answers to these common problems. I sit across from most of them and actively listen to them describe their current bottlenecks to getting to their desired state.
We discuss specifics around movement, history, food, sleep, stress, support network, preferred communication style, preferred level of attention and accountability, as well as defining what health, success, and thriving mean to you as an individual.
Everyone is unique!
As an organization we respect that individuality. Putting people into boxes leads to unpredictable results inside our facility, which is never a good thing.
The most common denominator I can find for success comes down to how we address the other 23 hours of the day in which they aren’t inside the gym.
As professional coaches, there is only so much we can contribute to the successful outcomes that you have.
Yes, I can help you get out of pain. I can help you move better overall inside the gym and provide you constructive feedback on what we can do to just get a little bit better. I can even provide basic education on making better choices around nutrition, sleep, stress, and mindset in the small amount of time I can “side-bar” with clients on the floor.
But I have a limited ability within that hour with you to help you address these specifics that I believe are the most important for achieving what you originally came inside District H for.
Everything is tied together!
Coming into the gym and having poor nutrition, poor sleep, poor stress management, and a poor mindset is like trying to win a Formula 1 race on regular unleaded gasoline. There aren’t enough back squats, pull-ups, or Assault Bike calories that will provide you with the answers you need to truly feel balanced and operating at full potential, whatever that means for you in your life. In fact, these things might be causing a detriment to your overall health.
I get it! Those of us with families and busy careers are just trying to do the absolute best we can. I’m in that boat myself. Telling a new mother to mindfully eat for every meal, count every macro, and get 8+ hours of sleep a night is a great way to sign your own death warrant.
But even within the stage of life or “field of play” in which we are operating in, we should always be striving to find balance as life will never get easier or slow down for us.
The field of play will change again, and when that happens, we will need to find a different solution to address the unique needs you have at that stage of your life.
The average tenure of our coaching staff is close to a decade. The singing, dancing, and cheerleading days are way behind us in terms of the impact we want to have with the people we care about. We want to see you succeed, but that can’t always happen by just addressing your fitness and movement.
If you ever feel like you are struggling with finding balance within your current field of play, always feel free to reach out to see if we can help you find the solution you need.
