Stockton-based In-Shape Health Clubs has partnered with TRX, a training equipment company, to create a custom education program for the club’s personal trainers.
The program, MOVE7, will allow trainers to create personalized programs for their clients, utilizing a multitude of exercises to help build strength, mobility, flexibility, power and stamina.
“We are investing heavily in education, training and leadership programs. One of our key priorities is to enable our team members to develop their expertise and skills while building a long-term career at In-Shape,” said Francesca Schuler, CEO of In-Shape. “We also want to continue to be at the forefront of fitness trends to help our members reach their goals, so developing the MOVE7 Training System is a key step. TRX has played a pivotal role in this endeavor.”
The TRX Education uses the seven foundational movements of push, pull, plank, hinge, lunge, squat and rotate.
“We developed our education curriculum using the TRX Suspension Trainer and other functional training tools, but it’s designed to work in any setting,” said Chris Frankel, head of Human Performance for TRX. “Our movement-based approach to coaching will get all of your trainers speaking the same language, which is a valuable prospect for any business.”
In-Shape will launch the program by introducing TRX equipment in all of the clubs throughout the state. Demonstrations will be held every Tuesday at 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
