AN INSPIRATIONAL TRIP TO THE EAST COAST

Hi, it’s Bonnie, back from another East coast excursion!

RoddyThis time I had the opportunity to attend the Mideast Regional AYP (Association of YMCA Professionals) Conference in Philadelphia, PA, where I got to meet violin virtuoso Roddy Chong – the event’s keynote speaker.

Roddy, an inspirational public speaker who has toured with Celine Dion and Shania Twain, spoke about “Finding and Pursuing Your Passion.” His speech, had a profound effect on me.

His passion helped reinvigorate my enthusiasm for serving the YMCA community.

Here at Total Gym, we abide by “The P DIF,” the affectionate acronym we’ve coined to describe our core values: Trustworthiness, Honor, Excellence, Passion, Discipline, Innovation and Fun! Normally I’m focused on the “Fun” aspect of “THE P DIF,” but after spending time surrounded by impassioned Y professionals who exude a sincere enthusiasm for their work and after hearing Roddy not only speak, but perform, I realize that having fun is fine, but having passion is truly powerful.

Roddy reminded everyone to constantly ask themselves, “Am I checked out right now, or plugged in?”

I want to be “plugged in.” I want to help better serve the Y’s in achieving their mission.

We’ve been serving the YMCA community since 2003, when we launched our commercial-grade equipment into the health club market. Our equipment is now in use at more than 30 YMCA facilities across the U.S. and Canada! Most YMCA’s use our Flagship Line of multi-purpose machines for GRAVITY programming, which is small group personal training geared at strength training and Pilates. But since the inception of the Elevate Line this year, we have countless new YMCA customers that are utilizing this series of intuitive single purpose units on the gym floor for members to use in their own workouts.  image

Every single Y is different, and every single wellness center in the Y is different. Now, with our two lines of equipment, we are able to better serve whatever need that is. Whether that is retaining membership through programming that yields healthy results and brings in additional revenue, drawing a younger demographic with functional training, or providing a platform for cancer survivors to safely exercise using only a portion of their bodyweight to build back their strength.

Some of our greatest moments come through helping others, and here at Total Gym, that is our mission: Helping millions of people get healthier!

I’m happy to say that I am a part of making that mission a reality, so now I ask you, what are you plugged in to?

A CONVERSATION WITH TOTAL GYM PRESIDENT – JESSE CAMPANARO

JesseTotal Gym was founded by Tom Campanaro almost 40 years ago, making the company that first revolutionized functional body weight training older than its current President. But there’s no better person suited to take Total Gym into the next generation than Jesse Campanaro.

Making fitness a family affair has been the norm in the Campanaro household. As a kid, Jesse began helping to assemble units in their own garage, then graduated to selling units and now he’s taken the reigns and is leading the company he grew up with into the future.

Recently, Jesse spoke with Motionsoft’s Hossein Noshirvani & Leigh Kessler for their weekly podcast, “Gym Class: Heroes of Fitness,” which features unscripted interviews with the pioneers and innovators behind the best-known names in the fitness world.

Hear what Jesse had to say about growing up with the iconic fitness brand, where he see’s the fitness industry heading and how he plans to take Total Gym along for the ride.

TAKING A TOUR OF THE EAST COAST

 

Hi everyone, GRAVITYBonnie here!

It’s been a busy few months here at Total Gym. We  transversed the U.S.A not once, but twice, to visit with customers in Portland, Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Philadelphia, New Jersey  and New York.  A West Coast native, it was so much fun to see a part of the country that I had never been to before.

IMAG1237Starting in Maine, we were able to make some time for a lobster dinner with the folks from the YMCA of Southern Maine, where, the next day, we hosted a workshop to introduce them to the GRAVITY program!  Check out their trainers doing torso rotations utilizing the adjustable glideboard on the New GTS! We even got some of their members on for a demo, and they loved it!YMCA Southern Maine

 

 

 

 

 

As we made  our way south  to Boston, I learned a couple of things, like, “Subs” are referred to as “Grindas” and the fact that there’s a wicked need for a GRAVITY Foundation Course in the area (or rather,  are-ah). Stay tuned for more details on a date…

Next stop…New York City.

Excited to be in the Big Apple, my initial reaction wasn’t quite what I expected… We arrived late at night and as we drove through, I thought, ‘HOLY COW is it dirty here!’ IMAG1253Everywhere I looked I just saw piles of garbage bags lining the streets. It wasn’t until I returned to San Diego where our resident New Yorker in the company clued me in to the fact that, that’s how garbage pick-up works in NYC. Ohhhh……

New York did however live up to its nickname as “The City that Never Sleeps.” We stopped by Times Square and experienced first-hand, the bustling nightlife, including a party of decked out high school seniors enjoying some after prom festivities on the streets of Manhattan.

But of course, we were in New York to work, and that we did. While there, we got to meet some new faces at Blink Fitness, where we introduced our new Total Gym Core Trainer to their fit-astic staff who had fun SCRUNCH-ing and planking OUR WAY to a tighter core and awesome abs! If you are in the area, we definitely recommend checking this place out for a workout – you can take advantage of their FREE TRIAL and try out our Core Trainer as well.

Just across the bridge in New Jersey, we received an up-close (too close actually) and personal welcome from one of its residents when we were unexpectedly rear ended. Aside from the initial shock (and the damage to our rental car), all parties were OK and as it turned out, the woman who hit us was a member of, The Atlantic Club, one of our customers! She kindly explained that, ‘everyone in New Jersey is really nice and she just wanted to get really close to welcome us to town…’ Fortunately, the people at Budget rental cars were extremely understanding and although it took a few hours to find a vehicle that would fit our Total Gym machines, they did their best to get us a new rental as soon as they could. But in the meantime, The Atlantic club happily took us in while we waited and allowed us to enjoy all that their facility has to offer: fitness facilities, swimming pool, Jacuzzi, steam room, sauna and access to their on-site café. So a BIG, “thank you!” to The Atlantic Club for your hospitality. Jersey is the best!

SkyClubWhile in New Jersey, we also had the chance to stop by SkyClub Fitness in West Caldwell and see how their GRAVITY programs are shaping up. Offering a full array of different classes from GRAVITY Strength, GRAVITY Pilates, GRAVITY Ride & Glide, and GRAVITY Strength, The SkyClub is taking full advantage of the versatility Total Gym machines provide.

Moving on down the Jersey Turnpike, we met up with the folks at the UFC Gym in Paramus where we treated them to a “parking lot demo” of the Core Trainer. We were really impressed by the owner, Peter Rivera, as he knew EVERY single client that came into his gym – now that’s a good gym owner!

Finally, the conclusion of our East Coast expedition brought us to “The City of Brotherly Love,” for the 2013 YMCA General Assembly tradeshow. We had a phenomenal time in Philadelphia with all the YMCA employees, especially the group from Indiana who we had the pleasure of dining with.Indiana YMCA

Thank you again to all of our customers and all of the facilities we visited. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting you all in person and having the chance to talk face-to-face about your programs and about our latest products here at Total Gym. While I could not mention everyone, you all made my first trip east spectacular!
