“I’ve been around awhile and still haven’t gotten used to all of the equipment and areas of the club. What can you do to help me?”
We are here to help every single member on their journey to fitness. To that end, we have created the Smart Start Program. This comprehensive fitness series includes an educational seminar presented by our fitness staff and a personal fitness assessment with a fitness specialist. These valuable tools help to get our new members get off to the right start!
“I’m new to fitness and I’m not sure where my fitness level is or how I can set goals. Can you help me?”
We are SERIOUS About RESULTS! It's more than a tagline at Slidell Athletic Club. We want to give you the best start you can get in your fitness journey. The first thing anyone should do when joining the Club is to attend one of our Smart Start Seminars (see above). After this introduction to our facility and philosophy, you should sign up with one of our Certified Personal Trainers for a Fitness Assessment. You will leave this comprehensive health evaluation with an easy-to-understand report that will give you a baseline value in key areas that will help to set goals for improvement such as heart rate, blood pressure, upper body strength, body fat and body mass index.
“How important is the relationship between what I eat and reaching me fitness goals?”
Industry data suggests that proper nutrition is anywhere from 60-80% of the fitness battle. At Slidell Athletic Club we believe that if you want to reach your fitness goals, good diet and nutrition is imperative. It is is one of our 5 Basic Components of Fitness. To understand more about how to approach your journey to great health, talk with one of our Certified Personal Trainers!
