CONFIDENTIAL & PRIVILEGED
WELCOME YOUR CLIMBERS
Upbeat music is playing in the background
Open the door, introduce yourself, fist bump as people come into class
Know your newbies/locations of their Versas
INTRODUCE THE VERSACLIMBER
*Play music without lyrics while you’re explaining the VC.
Talking Points for New People:
Hold handrails for support and step up on the pedals until both feet are level.
Straps on foot pedals should be loose enough to allow wiggle room but tight enough to be secured.
With both feet at the same level, position handgrips at about shoulder height.
Adjust handles by pressing the pin at the end of the handgrip. Remove the handgrip and reinsert it fully into another position and release the pin.
Drop into a mid squat position and begin climbing by taking a very short step stroke.
It is normal for your hands and feet to cramp up. This usually fades away by your third class. To help with foot cramping, the foot should be even, front to back
Point out the display (Quick Start, time spent climbing, feet climbed, length of stride), resistance knob, and quick start button.
Form - small squat, chest up and close to the climber (parallel to the spine of the versa)
Encourage climbers to stop and take breaks and go at their own pace.
Most of all, encourage them to have fun!
DELIVERY DURING CLASS
Make the intro high energy
Work the room - check form is correct, VersaClimber is setup correctly
Pull the mic away to correct someone’s form
Never make negative callouts
Always cueing, but never annoying. Annoying = saying the same number all the time “1,2,1,2,1,2,1,2….right left right left right left”
Make it fun
Make sure you can be seen, heard and understood in the entire class
Make eye contact with clients, especially with new people
Always count down, not starting higher than 5
Coordinate exercises to the music
Call out people you know in the room
Count down starting with 4, 3, 2, 1
Use inflection in your voice
Speak with purpose, not to fill silence
Correct form throughout class
Use the Stride Length as guidelines
Use body movement and levels
Give the climbers a target number to hit. It’s not necessary to give them the range of what short, middle and long range is
