The New HTS Training Facility

I am excited to formally announce that the new Hubbard Training Systems training facility will open in November, 2011 in downtown Carmel, just one block east of the Monon Trail. The HTS training facility will be a 900 square feet, private, specialty gym that will offer private (one-on-one) and semi-private training (small group).

Blog articles have been put on the backburner for a while, as I turn my full attention to getting the new training facility up and running. But, I will resume with more articles when things calm down a bit. I have received a ton of questions about the new facility, so I will try to answer those questions here for everyone.

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:

Specialty Barbells

Versatile strength training equipment, including:

Two adjustable power racks,
Two adjustable weight benches,
York Barbell Iso-Grip rubber encased weight plates,
Bumper 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,
Pull-up bars,
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,
weight vest,
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.
