I like everything about Peak Zone Fitness. Well-trained and educated trainers. Variety of exercises. Diet plans. VO2 and basal metabolism testing. Computer monitoring while exercising. Emails with my personal results after every class. Results. I love the results.
I would like to see a female trainer, maybe someone who can help with the female body form. There are certain exercises for chest that will flatten out a females chest that are recommended during class, maybe women could be given some different options. I may recommend this program to a male.
Trainer always on hand to ensure exercises are performed correctly. No time is wasted during workout, every minute is made to count. Exercises are very challenging and rigorous. Owner and all the trainers are very professional and treat you with a great deal of respect. Place is well cared for and everything works.
The reduced hours of operation are frustrating to me as well of other members from hearing their comments.
I also wish that during the hours that there are no classes that the gym would be open so we could come in and use the equipment.
There is a great need for more hand weights and really good supportive mats.
Workouts are great, but since I am so new to this format, I need more help and guidance in choosing the proper weights. I feel like I have to be a pest and ask multiple times, while I see others getting the same assistance I need, without having to ask for it. Even during my follow up V02 session, I said I would like one-on-one time to go through the standard exercises and have a personal log of weights that I should be using and the only assistance I was offered was to ask the trainers, which I have no trouble doing, but I still think a one-on-one thirty/forty five minute weight session would increase my success in this program. I can ask the trainers, but I am not the only person who needs the trainers assistance during the workouts. I also don't want to spend half of each workout attempting to find the proper weight or unable to attain the rep count because I have yet again chosen the wrong weights. It is deflating.
Also, there was a lot of talk about regular contact and communication, to which I have received none via text or otherwise. Yes I have received the weekly emails, but that is it. But I was shown strings of texts between current clients about meals and check-ins to how things are going and I have yet to receive any of those. It's almost like it was a dog and pony show to get me to sign up.
Materials provided have not been updated in quite some time. There are formatting issues on the food list that no one seems to care about taking care of (list of foods to avoid cuts off the middle of some words) and contradictory information (soy beans are on the yes carbs, but edamame is on the no list...they are the same food).
I think a little more care and attention would really make this place soar especially to new people like myself.
