Open gym is a bad idea
From The Archives - I’m going back through the old blog and reposting some of the best articles.
I read an ad today for a local gym that was bragging about the vast number of hours of open gym that they offer, and I thought, why would you brag about that? We don't offer open gym because you come to train with us, with coaches, to learn and to receive feedback. If you simply want to train on your own, there are large, inexpensive facilities without coaches that you can choose. We think most people can benefit from the programming in our classes, but if you need something more customized, we can do that too. But we're not fans of letting people come in and try random stuff on their own because we care too much about your safety and your progress.
