Mastering the Basics: On-Ramp and Personal Training Programs for Safe and Effective Workouts

You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.

The On-Ramp program at One Life will improve every workout you do for the rest of your life!

The One Life On-Ramp program is built to teach and refine your skills in fitness fundamentals. This includes aerobic exercise (cardio), weight lifting with barbells and kettlebells, and calisthenics (like burpees and pull-ups.) You’ll also learn how to exercise for maximum results, and see the value of coaching. Best of all, you’ll FEEL amazing!

Who is the right fit for One Life Fitness’ On-Ramp Program? The right fit at One Life has nothing to do with your physical abilities and everything to do with your character. We protect you, our members, and our staff from anyone who might add negativity, say things that promote body shaming, and people who aren’t interested in being coached. As long as you are kind and coachable you will excel at One Life!

One Life is a fitness and nutrition coaching company. We want you to start exercising, find a program you love, tweak it over time, and never stop. We tailor everything to you. Because we designed our programs with you in mind, we created an On-Ramp program to start you off with what sets you up for long-term success.

What is the One Life On-Ramp Program? We know that some people prefer personal training – an environment that allows for focus on your body and all of its limitations, strengths, weaknesses, and pain, others prefer small group classes – gain community, cheer each other, feel the energy, and maybe even go to brunch together! And then others prefer a hybrid approach to fitness and do a little bit of both, where you have the focus you need with personal training a few days each week coupled with a few small group classes. Which one are you?

Whatever works for your body AND your mind, our On-Ramp Program has you covered.

We coach you through proper technique in all 6 Foundational Movement patterns. We coach you through proper technique, so you move safely AND we learn about HOW your body moves along the way.

How does the On-Ramp program at One Life help me?

With On-Ramp, you don’t just sign up and hop into group classes with the coach knowing nothing about you, or you knowing nothing about the class. You don’t just sign up and start lifting heavy or pushing hard like at most other gyms. Those are quick ways to get hurt, feel frustrated, and end up quitting your new fitness routine again.

Have you been there? I know I have!

Our On-Ramp program is designed to make sure you get the benefits of exercise that show up in your everyday life. Since we train you for what life throws at you outside these gym walls, we have to start by mastering the foundations in order to build upon them.

What are the 6 foundational movement patterns?

The 6 foundational movement patterns that are found in everyday life are: squat, hinge, lunge/step, push, pull and carry.

Squat: Sitting on the toilet, getting in and out of a car, sitting on the couch.

Hinge: Picking something up that you dropped, bending over to pet a dog, picking up a child.

Lunge/step: Helps you get up off the floor, walk up stairs, hiking.

Push: Pushing a child on a swing, push yourself off the ground, push a car that is broken down.

Pull: Pulling something off a shelf, pulling someone up off of the ground.

Carry: Carrying a child, groceries, moving boxes, laptop bag.

We do teaching and assessment of each of these movement patterns by providing you with personal training sessions to start. After that, you begin either group classes or continue with personal training sessions (or both) to reach your goals.

If there is more focus needed to excel in these foundational movements, we won’t hold you back from joining classes if you feel ready, but we will continue working with you as needed to improve along the way.

We want you to be healthy and happy and we’re here to help. Click here to book a free no sweat intro consultation.
