When Daniel set the SSP training facility up, he envisaged something different from a traditional gym. He saw the most common problem with a standard gym membership; once you have signed up you have a quick induction session and, unless you can afford expensive personal training sessions, you are left to your own devices. In addition to this, boot camp services or individual personal trainers often offer a “varied service”, but not one which leads to optimal progression and are individually tailored to your needs.
There are two main problems with both these training methods; one is that if you are indeed left to your own devices. Very few people are able to confidently and effectively achieve their goals in this way, mainly because many do not know how to effectively squat or complete a deadlift without hurting your back. If people are unable to be confident in their form, then how can you build more muscle, get stronger and change your physique if your not training optimally?
The second problem with bootcamps and personal training in general is the variability in quality and many trainers will make a selling point that “each session is different” but this is fundamentally flawed. You rarely progress in any of the key movements if this is the case and only with consistent repetition can you build strength.
