10 Reasons Why You Are In Shape Enough To Start

Discover the top 10 reasons why you’re in shape enough to start your fitness journey today.

Imagine it is one year from now, and you still haven’t started working out. Sometimes it’s scary to know where you really are at with your health and fitness, but not doing it can be even scarier.


1. “Functional” Means the Workouts Mimic Real Life (With Less Couch)

Our fitness routines are designed to mirror real-life activities. This means that the movements and exercises you’ll be doing are natural and functional, similar to the actions you perform daily. In success, you’ll start to notice your everyday activities getting easier and easier, regardless of where you start.

2. Baby Steps

Fitness is not a race, and we’re in it for the long game. Our approach is to start slowly, allowing your body to adjust to new routines. This gradual progression ensures that you build strength and stamina at a comfortable pace, reducing the risk of injury and burnout. It’s embracing incremental changes, and recognizing those successes.

3. The Focus is on SHOWING UP

The most important step in your fitness journey is showing up – we’ll take care of the rest. Our philosophy centers around the effort and commitment of making it to the workout, not just the workout itself. By consistently showing up, you’re already making significant progress, and our Committed Club is proof.

4. The Renascent Rascals

Our fitness community is a pillar of support and encouragement. From fellow members to coaches, everyone is there to uplift each other. This sense of belonging and shared purpose makes your fitness journey more enjoyable and less intimidating.

5. Most of Our Members Started “Out-of-Shape”

You’re not alone! Many of our members began their fitness journeys in less-than-ideal shape. This shared experience creates a relatable and empathetic community where everyone understands the challenges of starting out and supports each other’s growth.

6. Our Coaches Were Beginners Once Too

Our coaches may look like they’ve been fitness pros forever, but they started just like you – confused about which end of the dumbbell to pick up. They’re living proof that there’s hope for us all! This firsthand experience makes them uniquely qualified to guide, motivate, and inspire you, regardless of your starting point.

7. Judgement and Mirror-Free

Our workout spaces are free from mirrors, emphasizing focus on how you feel rather than how you look. This environment fosters a judgment-free zone where you can concentrate on your workout without self-consciousness or comparison. Training in this way also increases self-awareness around muscular engagement and supports building that mind-body connection.

8. You’ll Make Progress Right Away

Tracking progress is a key part of our program and we believe in data. Whether it’s improving your endurance, increasing your strength, or simply feeling better, every milestone is celebrated. This positive reinforcement encourages continuous improvement and boosts motivation, so we don’t forget how far we’ve come!

9. Inspire Others

Your fitness journey can be a huge positive example for those around you, including family and friends. By prioritizing your health and well-being, you become a role model for others, encouraging them to embark on their own fitness adventures just by starting yours.

10. What Would You Do Otherwise?

Finally, consider the alternative. If not investing in your health and fitness, what else would you be doing? Starting this journey is a proactive step towards better health, more energy, and improved well-being. It’s a choice that brings lifelong benefits. We can’t wait to meet you.


Starting your fitness journey is not about where you start but about the progress you make. Our approach is tailored to ensure that everyone, regardless of their initial fitness level, feels welcome, supported, and capable of achieving their fitness goals. So, why wait? You are more than ready to start today!
