MOTIVATION IS UNRELIABLE – DISCIPLINE IS THE KEY
What We expect from You:
As a Phoenix member, you should train consistently. You should do a three session a week plus an additional 2 running/cardio/other sport session. If you only make 2 classes a week, you need to do another sport or run, ride or swim to build your fitness or the trainign will not work .
We expect you are on time for classes with a positive can-do hard work attitude, pay your training fees on time and always turn up for yourself and the team. Other people are relying on you. We expect you to not come if you are sick but if you are injured or tired, turn up, we can adjust the training, or you can learn by watching.
Discipline and routine are key. Make the choice to train and say no to distractions. We will guide your ambitions and coach and assist you but in the end it is up to you. Its the 1000 little decisions you make every day that will make you better. TURN UP.
