Demand for energizing and exciting group classes means big changes for many in the fitness industry. Court Jester Athletic Club embraced the trend and transformed their old racquetball courts into impressive functional fitness training rooms.
We supplied Court Jester with the tools needed to deliver the best in functional fitness to their members, including Escape’s Core Bags, Bulgarian Bags, Sand Bags, Medicine Balls, Slam Balls, TIYRS, and much more. Escape Decks give exercisers the ability to complete a variety of functional cardio and strength movements. Between movement sets with the functional gear, members get their hearts racing on Assault AirRunners and AirBikes. A suspension training truss from Dynamic Fitness hangs from the ceiling with TRX straps, and a full set of rubber hex dumbbells add strength training versatility to these impressive rooms.
The colorful range of equipment is complimented by the excitement of the rooms themselves. Color-changing neon lights line the walls, which are wrapped with motivational graphics designed by Escape Fitness. Phrases such as “One More Rep” and “There Is an Athlete in Everyone” push exercisers to reach beyond their goals.
Advantage also provided a two-day training intensive for the club’s group exercise instructors. Participants were led through two days of heart pounding and calorie burning sessions by Kim Hamilton, our in-house Escape Fitness Master Trainer. The group exercise instructors learned key movements with various functional tools, teaching points for different exercises, safety tips, and much more. They finished the weekend equipped with the knowledge and experience needed to bring this exciting format of training to their classes.
Using Escape Fitness’ “Business in a Box” programming, Court Jester has all the tools needed to transform and meet industry trends, from the equipment and training to business plans that maximize ROI. Escape Fitness currently offers a menu of three group training packages:
