Can You Do Group Strength Training if You’re “Overweight”?

People often ask if they can do Group Strength Training if they’re overweight. 

The answer: Yes! Anyone can do Group Strength Training and subsequently Fit Foundry

In a one-on-one setting, coaches use Group Strength Training principles to create the perfect workout for a client. Each session is designed to challenge the client at the right level and move the person closer to their goals.

In a group setting, the workout for the class is modified to suit the needs of each participant. In “Fit Foundry language,” quickly modifying a general workout in a group session is called “scaling.” 

For example, imagine a workout like this: 

3 sets of:
8 double racked kettlebell squats
8 plyo push- ups

That’s tough! But what if we adjusted it for a beginner who wants to lose weight and hasn’t worked out very much in the past? It might look like this:

3 rounds of:
5 goblet or body-weight squats
5 pushups from elevated position like a bench or 24 inch box

We’re experts at modifying workouts for clients. And we can provide hundreds of examples of how we’ve done it in the past.

You Can Do Group Strength Training If You’re Overweight!

Here’s something to remember: You don’t have to be fit to start training. Training is the thing that makes you fit. It’s like swimming lessons: You don’t learn to swim before taking lessons. You take lessons to learn.

Maybe you’ve seen our best client on our Instagram @FitFoundryHoboken and they’re incredible, but that is where they are at on their journey, so be careful not to compare your journey to theirs.

At our gym, group strength training is just a method we use to help people lose weight or body fat or gain strength—or accomplish any other goal. Fit Foundry uses a training mix of cardiovascular and strength work, which makes it perfect for people who want to change body composition. 

With new clients, we always find out what they want to accomplish first, and then we put together a detailed plan. If weight loss is your goal, we’ll explain why the workouts we give you will help you, and we’ll tell you about the other half of the weight-loss equation: nutrition! People always think about working out when they think of Fit Foundry, but eating right is a huge part of the program.

After we create the perfect plan for you, we’ll help you stick to it and make sure you get measurable results. We’ll track the numbers that are important to you so you know you’re making progress.

This process works like a charm. We’ve had beginners become very fit, we’ve had older clients become fitter than they were when they were younger, and we’ve had people lose impressive amounts of weight and body fat. It’s amazing to watch them progress, and we celebrate every single achievement with them.

If weight loss is your goal and you’re interested in Fit Foundry, let me assure you that you can workout with us if you’re currently overweight. The key is working with a qualified professional who can create workouts that are perfect for you and your goals. 

The best part: Your journey won’t start with a workout. It will start with a conversation. That means you’ll get to tell your story, talk about your goals and ask any questions you have. If you’re unsure about anything, we’ll talk the time to make you feel totally comfortable. This way, you’ll feel confident in our plan and inspired to take action.

We’d love to use Fit Foundry to help you lose weight. If that’s your goal, we can help. To meet with a coach and create the perfect plan for success, book a free consultation here: HERE .
