A hybrid membership offers you the best of both worlds by combining the benefits of group training with personalized coaching. Everyone at Madlab starts with fundamental personal training, allowing you to build a relationship with your coach, an understanding of what you’re capable of, and the principles of training for the long-term. Then it’s time to put that knowledge to work, or play the long game as we like to say. Let’s guide you through the experience of a hybrid membership, step-by-step, completing a 6-week training cycle.


Step 1: Receive the Newsletter

One week before the start of a new programming cycle, you will receive a newsletter in your inbox. This newsletter is packed with valuable information, including friendly reminders, details about upcoming events, and an outline of the training focuses for the next 6 weeks. Take the time to read through it and familiarize yourself with the training objectives ahead.


Step 2: Book Your 1-on-1 Session

Once you have reviewed the newsletter and gained an understanding of the upcoming training focuses, it's time to connect with your dedicated coach. Booking a 1-on-1 session is essential to align your goals and programming. During this session, you will have the opportunity to discuss the programming, clarify any concerns, and ensure that the training plan is tailored to your needs. Ideally, schedule this session within the week before the cycle starts to maximize the benefits.


Step 3: Meet Your Coach for a Comprehensive Session

You will arrive at Madlab for your 1-on-1 session with your coach. This session is designed to provide you with a detailed understanding of the training program. By understanding the upcoming cycle and current well-being, you can ensure that your body is functioning optimally and supporting your desired outcomes. Your coach will guide you through your various movement options and principles, such as lower-body and upper-body focuses, core-body or “midline” exercises, skill-transfer techniques, and cardiovascular/aerobic workouts. This is your chance to troubleshoot any challenges, ask questions, and refine your understanding and execution. At the end of this session you should feel prepared to navigate the next 6 weeks and get the most out of your attendance.


Step 4: Schedule Your Classes

After your 1-on-1 session, it's time to schedule your classes for the next week(s) of the training cycle. By reserving your classes, you set yourself up for success and maintain a consistent training routine. Planning ahead allows you to secure your preferred time slots and ensures that you are consistently engaged in the programming. You can even look at the lesson plans in advance should you be looking to get a few more exposures to elements that align with your goals.


Step 5: Engage in Group Training Sessions

With your classes reserved, it's time to show up and engage in the group training sessions. Arrive a little early to settle in and break the ice with other members. As you embark on through the lesson plan, you'll find yourself surrounded by individuals who share similar goals and aspirations. During the session, a coach will be there to provide support and guidance. They will ensure that you stay on track and receive the necessary assistance to fill in the gaps. Don't hesitate to ask questions, seek clarification, or request reaffirmation if needed. Embrace the shared experience and draw inspiration from the group, all while staying true to your individual objectives.


Step 6: Reflect, Adjust, and Progress.

As the weeks progress, take time to reflect on your journey. Assess your accomplishments, identify areas for improvement, and set new goals. Your coach will play a vital role in this process, providing valuable insights and suggestions for adjustment. Embrace the opportunity to refine your approach, challenge yourself further, and continue progressing towards your desired outcomes.


By following these steps through a hybrid membership, you’ll find yourself booking your next 1-on-1 sooner than you think. With each passing cycle you’ll learn more about yourself, acquire new skills, and refine what you want out of your training. The combination of group training, personalized coaching, and a supportive community creates an environment where you can experience remarkable growth. Stay committed, play the long game, and keep progressing.
