Q?

What’s next for Ritch’s Gym?

A.

We have our hearts set on helping our members reach all of their health/physique goals, make your visit to the gym more enjoyable etc...  Below are some of the plans we have for the gym.
1.  Advertising opportunities for local businesses within Ritch's Gym!
2.  Free weight lifting/nutrition seminars at the end of 2021!
3.  More new equipment.  My goal is to add at least 1-2 new piece of equipment every year.
4.  Meat locker addition.  There is space beside the Jiu-Jitsu room/behind the mirrors.  It is double the space of the current meat locker.  As Ritch's Gym increases members, we will look more seriously at moving the meat locker equipment into the new space.

Q?

What do I get with my gym membership?

A.

You get full use of all equipment during business hours.  You get free weight lifting classes.  Monday-Friday 6:00am and Monday-Thursday 7:00pm.  Our staff will be glad to show you the equipment and how to use it if you have questions.  If you are new to weight lifting, I highly recommend our program design which includes a designed program for you and a 1 30 minute personal training session to go over the plan.  The fee is only $125

Q?

Why is there an annual gym improvement fee?

A.

This annual gym improvement fee is a secondary liability insurance coverage for you or your child.  We also use a portion of this fee to keep the equipment updated (new equipment added each year), clean and in proper working order.  This fee is collected in the month of September in the amount of $35 per person. If you are only a member of the Jiu-Jitsu program, your annual gym fee is $15.  The gym fee is pro-rated to your month of enrollment.

Q?

What’s the first thing I need to do so I can loose fat?

A.

1.  Join our 1 year nutrition program and sign up for our group classes or personal training. Without a good nutrition program, your results will be limited.  Wonder why so many people sign up for gym memberships and work real hard for 1-2 months then quit?  It's because they are not seeing the results they want compared with the amount of sweat and hard work they have put into the gym.  The reason is there poor nutrition.  As you have noticed, I say "fat loss" not weight loss.  The difference is that weight loss includes muscle (lean tissue), fat and water.  At Ritch's Gym, we are into muscle gain (don't worry ladies, you will not get bulky) and fat loss.  I encourage all of my clients to not use the scale as your only tool to measure success.  On our program, we measure "FAT LOSS".  Fat lies on top of muscle so when you lose the fat, we want a nice shape and healthy body with plenty of muscle to see.  Note:  Joshua Ritch in not a licensed nutritionist but has 23yrs experience with bodybuilding/nutrition.  He started competing in bodybuilding in 1998 and training competitors in 2013.

2.  Join our group classes and/or personal training.  We recommend 3 days of 30 minutes of weight training for beginners and 4-5 days per week of weight training for Intermediate/Advanced level.  Cardio does have it's place but the emphasis needs to be placed on weight training and nutrition for maximum results.
