Accountability: Because We Care
Written by: Coach Phil

Fitness is a personal journey, but that doesn’t mean you have to go through it alone. At Derby City, we feel very strongly about community, and the bonds of friendship and family have the power to help us become our best selves. We can’t go lift the weights for you, or move your legs for you when you run. But what we can do is lift spirits. We can celebrate our successes. We can help learn from our failures. We grow stronger together to help lift each other up to new heights.

In 2017, we dedicated ourselves to this ideal, and started an accountability program. In 2018, we hope to improve and refine the program to provide even more support for all our members. The program is simple. Periodically, I’ll check in with you to make sure that your journey is going well, and that we are helping you accomplish your goals in any way possible. Whether that’s with nutritional help, personal accessory programming, or just a sounding board for issues or questions you may have. I’m here for each and every member.

So, why is this important? And why should you care? No other gym in the city, and very few nationally are investing this much effort into ensuring that each member is receiving the time and attention that they deserve. Most gyms are satisfied to just take your money and don’t care if you ever walk through their doors. That’s not so here. We love having the opportunity to make you both fitter and happier. If we are able to make your hour inside our walls the highlight of your day, then that’s when we know we are doing the right things.

This program only works if you also invest in it. We can’t help you reach goals that you don’t tell us about, or fix problems you don’t bring to our attention. I can’t say that every idea or suggestion will be implemented, but they are all acknowledged and discussed in our coaches meetings. If we see trends in a desire amongst the community we always strive to fulfill it.

Check your inbox, make sure that I didn’t get relegated to the junk folder. Add me to your whitelist and take advantage of the channels of communication! If you saw the e-mail and thought, “I’ll message him later” and never did, take the time to shoot me a line. Even if it’s just to say that all is well and you’re pleased as punch with everything we’ve done so far and you’re satisfied! We value your feedback and want to hear from you!

We take a personal interest in each and every member who comes through these doors whether your goal is to make it to Regionals, or just be able to pick up your great grandkids at 95 and still give them the biggest bear hugs imaginable. Your reasons for being here are important to us, and we want to help you be anything and everything that you have the desire and drive to be.

So, check that inbox. You should have an email from me within the last month letting you know about the program. If you don’t, please feel free to reach out to me at [email protected] and we can get started!
