You've been thinking about it for a while now. Getting a gym membership. Big box gyms are offering all kinds of deals this time of year - $1 down, $10 a month, all with "no commitment." If that is the kind of gym you are looking for, Storm is not for you.
We are a FULL commitment gym. That's because we believe in helping you achieve your goals. At Storm, you commit to us, we commit to you. Simple reciprocity.
And because 'tis the giving season, we're going to extend this reciprocity even further. From November 24 - December 1, when you buy any package from us, we will give you one month of unlimited group classes for a friend! Now we are both able to give something this season, and that's something we can all feel good about. Shop small, and help them save BIG.
Reality is this: there is no free lunch. No magic pill. No three easy payments of $9.99. It is commitment to the process, and you must love the process more than the outcome. The outcome itself will be a direct result of the process you follow.
At Storm, we seek to open the mind through training – to teach you that you can take on a task in which you thought was impossible and conquer it. Then, we seek to take these lessons learned inside the gym and utilize them somewhere else.
So what do we mean when we say commitment?
We mean FULL commitment.
We ask those to commit to the process of change. This includes:
By committing to changing these things, we promise you will see a positive change in your physical AND emotional wellness. You cannot have one without the other. You will not only become more fit, but you will become a leader in your community and for those around you.
You are the average of the five people you spend the most time around. We seek to make you a better person. A person who cares about the person to their left and right during a workout and will push those around to be better will be the same person to take lead on a project at work. The same person who, in the gym, commits to learning new movements will become a better student outside the gym. The person who commits to training an hour per day will learn how to balance their schedules and prioritize to spend more time with their family.
While this can sound like a lot up front. But, we are only asking for four to six hours per week in the gym. This is less than 3% of the total time in the week. It might mean one less episode of a TV show, or going out to dinner a couple less times per month to afford it.
Eating habits: We are asking you to change a few simple eating habits. Eat breakfast - even if you are following the early version of the morning attack plan, it is important to eat something for breakfast. Even if it is just a banana, we are able to reduce cortisol levels released from a workout. Personally, I am a fan of breakfast high in protein and fat (bacon, eggs and a slice of avocado is the perfect breakfast for me if I have a couple hours before training, if not a banana does the trick). Keep a snack handy for post workout (my favorite is overnight oats). I prefer to keep my lunches light on the carb and fat. It is mostly protein and vegetables. Dinner is a mix of all three – carb, proteins, and fats. We are asking you to eat whole when possible. If it has something you can’t pronounce in the label, throw it out. If it wasn’t food 100 years ago, probably shouldn’t be food today.
Sleep patterns. Most Americans do not get enough sleep. we are asking you to shift your sleep schedule. We are asking you to get roughly eight hours per sleep each night. Most people go to bed too late and get up too late. This is commonly due to poor scheduling. Follow our morning and evening attack plans to better schedule your day here. I am asking you to skip that extra episode of a TV show and go to sleep a little earlier than usual and get up earlier than usual. You will be surprised how much extra free time you actually have. If you think you don’t have enough time, I’ve got some news for you – you have the time. You just need to rearrange your day and figure out a sustainable schedule.

Training. When you come to train at Storm, we expect hard work. You will notice some things about our programming which separates us. These nuances you will learn of later. Essentially everything is periodized, planned, and logged. We train smarter, not harder to achieve results faster. All we ask of you is a positive attitude and willingness to go when we ask you to go.
Long story short: we seek to use the gym as a tool for positive change. We are asking for you to commit to us, and we commit to making you better inside and outside the gym.
