Frequently asked questions:
1. Where is the new HTS training facility located?
The address of the new HTS training facility is 30 First Street SW, suite 2, Carmel, IN 46032. It is located just a half block west of Rangeline Road, one block south of Main Street. It is located on the second floor of the two-story brick building, with accessibility on the side entrance.
2. What services will be offered? Is there an open-gym membership?
The primary services will be private, (60 and 30 minute sessions) one-on-one training (including exercise program design and review for those who wish to train at another facility), and semi-private training (small group training). There is no open-gym option, as all training is by appointment and supervised.
3. How does semi-private training work?
Semi-private training sessions will be offered several (3-6) times per day, Monday through Saturday. Each session is limited to six clients max and requires sign-up in advance. Each client has their own, personalized training program (including warm-up, corrective exercise, strength training, and endurance training), and my supervision. Semi-private training clients pay a single, inclusive monthly fee (rate depends on frequency of training: 1x, 2x, 3x, or 4x per week).
4. What type of equipment and amenities will the training facility have?
The HTS training facility will be a specialty training gym, outfitted with equipment that supports the HTS training philosophy. Some of the equipment includes:
Versatile strength training equipment, including:
Two adjustable power racks,
Two adjustable weight benches,
York Barbell Iso-Grip rubber encased weight plates,
Several Olympic barbells,
A cutom-made swiss multi-grip barbell,
A safety-squat yolk barbell,
An aluminum training barbell,
A french curl barbell,
Competition style kettlebells ranging from 8-26kg,
A Landmine barbell-loaded rotational trainer,
Two pairs of suspended rings,
And the all-important chalk bucket!
36' x 6' "Runway" for warm-up, agility, and conditioning, plus:
A plate-loaded strength sled,
and large-display digital wall timer.
Additionally, foam rollers and other myofascial release tools.
5. When will the new HTS training facility open?
I am hopeful that it will open in early November, 2011.
6. What is the parking situation downtown?
There are surface parking spaces in front and behind the building. Additonally, there is a free underground parking garage across the street. I don't anticipate it being an issue.
7. Will you have childcare?
I will not have a dedicated space or service for childcare. I have discussed this issue with some clients that have young children, and we have brainstormed ideas, such as planned co-op babysiting among parents. I will try to accomodate clients with kids as best I can. Additionally, I will have more times available in early morning and evening for semi-private than currently.
8. Will the new HTS training facility have changing and shower facilities?
Yes, the new HTS training facility will have a bathroom/changing room with a shower.
Let me know if you have anyother questions. Thank you everyone for your support and help. I will keep you updated with all the exciting changes going on at HTS in future posts.
