case study: Team Rees Gym – Strength and Conditioning – UK
The Challenge

Following a significant expansion of the workout space at Team Rees gyms, there was a need to engage, excite and educate the team in foundational strength and conditioning practices.

The Solution

Excelsior supported Team Rees by delivering a two day lifting workshop, which focused on the fundamentals of executing and teaching sound lifting technique.

The Result

The entire team spent dedicated time learning, practicing and teaching the core barbell lifts – squat, deadlift and the clean (including several variations). Over a two day period the learners were exposed to and explored key teaching techniques, including verbal and physical cues, enabling them to immediately begin working with exercisers at the establishment.
case study: Simply Gym – Developing Leaders – UK
The Challenge

It has been a tough 18 months for operators – beyond the obvious financial challenges caused through COVID restrictions, they were also faced with increased pressures around hygiene / cleaning, staff recruitment and day to day operational management.

At Simply Gym there is a relentless commitment and drive to support their members and add value to their experience. To do this they need the right people in the right positions and their leaders must have the necessary tools in their armoury in order to be successful.

The Solution

Given the high level of operational surprises and challenges, the Mike Tyson quote ‘everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth’ resonated with Simply Gym who contacted Excelsior to discuss training opportunities.

Working with Richard from the team, Excelsior revised their existing Intelligent Leadership course to be able to provide a workshop focused on preparing leaders to deal with whatever is going on around them.

The Result

The one-day workshop was delivered at Swansea City FC’s stadium to the senior leadership team from Bay Leisure and Simply Gym. Focusing on ensuring the team appreciated the importance of having a calm head, creating workable strategies and executing upon sound tactics.

The day was then supported with digital learning, on a bespoke learnM site, so the team can revisit the materials as and when they need them.

Testimonial
“It was wonderful to work with Andy, Chris and Keith when organising and delivering this two day workshop. The days significantly increased our team's knowledge and confidence in both completing the lifts themselves and teaching others. We now have a team that is more engaged in the strength and conditioning side of our business and look forward to learning more from the Excelsior team again in the future.”
– Richard Rees, Team Rees Gym, UK
“The day was incredibly useful and facilitated many discussions around how we currently strategise around our operations and gave the team models and systems to take away, back into the business. Excelsior then provided digital learning, to support the in-person work we’ve done, so that our people can continue to develop themselves, in their own time.”
