OnlinE Training

SSP ONLINE TRAINING NOW AVAILABLE

 

We have been working really hard to put things in place to keep you active, strong and resilient in these crazy times. We have a number of options that we think will work really well and still adhere to government guidelines and there is no cost to any current SSP member.

First off, we have partnered with a brilliant app called Telehab, this gives us the ability to program our Get Strong sessions in the comfort of your own home without much equipment. You’ll be receiving a personalised invite with your own program included and you’ll be able to see exercise demos as well as send us video responses of you training so we can still go over technique etc

The first program includes a daily mobility session to keep you guys supple from all the sitting around you’ll now be doing :-), a warm up to be performed before every session and 2 Get Strong sessions to be alternated. The first 2 sessions we’ve included are of a lower intensity than our normal sessions so can be performed multiple times throughout the week – perform these 2-4 times each and we’ll send out a more difficult program next week!.

Download the Telehab App here (your login will come in a separate email from Telehab) – 

https://apps.apple.com/us/app/telehab/id1439042849

Strava

We have also set up an SSP Strava account so members can compete on local routes for walking/running/cycling! For route ideas and distances, message me and I’ll put up some challenges in the group! For more info and to create an account go to:

https://www.strava.com/clubs/sspstrong 

Strava App:

https://apps.apple.com/app/strava-cycling/id426826309 

Walking 

And lastly walking is probably one of the best things you can do for your health, I have personally used the AllTrails app for a few years and it has a load of local walking routes graded by difficulty and location. Whilst we are still allowed to leave once a day for exercise – getting out for a hike is a great stress reliever, burns loads of kals, stimulate muscle mass and builds immunity. The app is great value and can be found here:

Thanks and stay #SSPSTRONG

COVID-19 UPDATE

COVID-19 Update

Thank you for your continued loyalty and support, even during these uncertain times. Our thoughts go out to all of you who have been affected by this unprecedented situation.

We have kept our gym open as long as possible because we know how important a role exercise and health play in your life but due to the unfolding situation with Coronavirus (COVID-19), we’re very sad to have to let you know we’ll be temporarily closing SSP with immediate effect.

We had planned to organise running & walking clubs, 1:1 and small group training in parks and more but we feel this would be immoral and this is more about humanity than exercise and revenue!

Your Membership

After a lot of deliberation we have decided to pause all memberships from 30th March, however, if you wish to continue paying your membership please let us know by replying to this email and we will do something to compensate you when we are back to normality.

Online Training

Our number one priority in this period is to continue to support everyone’s physical and mental health, and keep you all strong and resilient. Tomorrow morning we will release our Get Strong sessions to all our current members that you’ll be able to do in the comfort of your own home as well as some local running and hiking routes.

In our last email, we sent out some equipment recommendations that will make at home training more varied, if you didn’t pick some up, now might be the time!

Mini Bands

Last, but definitely not least – we would just like to say a huge thank you to all the frontline key workers who are the real heroes in this situation. We would love to somehow look after you guys when this all blows over.

Thanks and stay #SSPSTRONG

COVID-19 Update

We would like to take this opportunity to say to all the members of our community that we are still training and our doors are still open.

We are aware of the government advice regarding the avoidance of non-essential activity and have taken special measures to ensure all our facilities are thoroughly cleaned before and after any use in SGPT Sessions or 1:1 Sessions. We are asking all members to wash their hands before and after sessions and to help us maintain our sanitising standards (we have a sink upstairs in the 2nd building).

We are still asking people with ANY cold symptoms or any known exposure to sit it out for the recommended period, but we have no plans, as yet, to close our facility (this could change depending on the daily updated government guidelines, which of course we will keep you updated with as much as possible).

Credit System

During this time, we realise that some members may not be able to make the most of our credit system, therefore we are waiving current credit expirations for the foreseeable future (Get Strong credits will have no expiry). Due to the way our memberships are set up on Team Up you will have to email us at the end of the month with how many sessions you haven’t used and we will add a pack onto your account with the corresponding credit amount with no expiry.

Home Training Options

In preparation for potentially having to train at home for an indefinite period of time, we would recommend you buy some or all of the following now so you can train more effectively. By no means are these essential and you can get a great training effect with just bodyweight, but even some bands and sliders will give you some great options. We plan to send out some home training plans early next week but for now some of these might be good in preparation:

Sliders

Mini Bands

https://amzn.to/3a5gboC

Bands

https://amzn.to/2UqZ7D4

Suspension trainer

https://amzn.to/2x9hFQd

Possible Closure Options

Lastly, in the event of a forced government closure we are exploring multiple options so our members can still train effectively. These potential options are:

– designated time slots to use SSP in isolation
– equipment loaned for home training
– home sessions programmed and delivered via a smartphone app
– guided walks

We are not sure what will be allowed but we would love to get some feedback on what you would prefer, just reply to this email to share your thoughts.
We are grateful for the support of our community through this and wish you and your family the health to make it through this uncertain time.

Dan

At SSP, we pride ourselves on high quality information that is backed by science and delivered by experts. Our last fat loss challenge was a HUGE success and between the 9 members who completed it, they lost a combined 62.8kg and the average bodyfat lost was 4.2%! This was done without any ridiculous detoxes, dangerous low calorie diets, keto, horrendous high volume bootcamps etc.

This challenge is not training based – We have deliberately not made this challenge training based, as fundamentally nutrition and adherence is what dictates fat loss, not training more or harder!

Fat Loss – SSP Style
The SSP 12 week challenge aims to be different. We want to produce genuine, sustainable results that fit around your lifestyle without huge calorie deficits, fad diets or unsustainable training programs. The challenge includes:

3 x Body Composition tests (value £95)
Bodyfat and muscle mass will be measured at the beginning of week 1, 6 and at the end of week 12 so we have some concrete numbers on genuine fat loss. You will also be required to take photos at each point (you can do these at home, just as long as you do them!).

Customised meal plan based on your body composition test (value £100)
Based on the results of your body composition test, you will be given a custom meal plan that will take into account your daily required calories and activity levels, as well as a customised recipe guide. No generic meal plans here!

Fortnightly remote coaching (via skype or facetime) with Richard Tucker (value £150)
Rich is one of the country’s elite nutritionists and you get to pick his brains every 2 weeks over skype or facetime.

Weekly group accountability sessions at SSP (value £120)
Think of this a bit like Weight Watchers, minus the useless scales and weird crisps. You will have a coach (Dan or Ryan) and we can discuss specific issues you are struggling with, strategies to overcome them and tips and tricks to aid in weight loss. Whatsapp group and private Facebook forum included.

Bonus – 2 class credits per month (value £75)
Think of this a bit like Weight Watchers, minus the useless scales and weird crisps. You will have a coach (Dan or Ryan) and we can discuss specific issues you are struggling with, strategies to overcome them and tips and tricks to aid in weight loss. Whatsapp group and private Facebook forum included.

Total value – £540

Testimonials
Here are some of the amazing results we had on the last challenge along with some testimonials:

“This journey has been life changing and the pictures tell a clear story, but behind the pictures is a more positive mentality, a clearer mindset, a new found energy, a fresh approach to diet and training, an educated and informed choice on small sustainable manageable changes to my lifestyle which thanks to you and help me get to this stage and a good base foundation to work from going forward.”

Prizes

The prizes are based on % of bodyfat loss and who the coaching team thinks deserve the most. Now to the prizes (being leaner than ever should be good enough, but we want to spoil you :-)):

  • A spa day for two at the amazing 5 star Pennyhill Park Hotel (Value over £300) and 4 Personal Training Sessions with a Personal Trainer of your choice (Value (£180)
  • £150 of vouchers to spend at The Cobham Clinic (health and skin clinic) and an upgrade on SSP membership to 6pw for 1 month
  • A 75 minute sports massage at SSP (value £60) and 5 class credits (value £62.50)

 

How much will it cost me?

The cost of the SSP 12 Week Fat Loss Challenge is just:

  1. Early bird offer – £350 (Until 23rd May 2019)

OR

£400 upfront before the start date on June 1st OR Monthly – £133 Per Month for 3 months (added onto your SSP membership)

The start date is June 1st 2019 and we are limiting this to just 12 spaces.

Again, this is limited to just 12 spaces to keep the quality high so act fast. If you wish to know any more email Dan at dan@surreystrengthandperformance.com or you can book now at the early bird price on the app now!
