WHAT’S NEXT FOR RITCH’S GYM?

1. Advertising opportunities began in 2021. We would like it if more local businesses took advantage of our inexpensive advertising within Ritch’s Gym!
2. Back to offering more free weight lifting/nutrition seminars for 2022!
3. More new equipment. My goal is to add at least 1-2 new piece of equipment every year.
4. Ritch’s Gym wants to purchase our building. God willing we can do this in 2022. We plan on adding a 3rd weight lifting room! Beside the Jiu-Jitsu room, there is approximately 2000 sq ft of additional space. We would like to make this a 3rd weight lifting room but geared more toward heavy powerlifting/body building! This would all be new equipment. The similar style of the meat locker but new equipment!
5. If Cuts by Ashton decides to make Ritch’s Gym his permanent home, we would like to pull a building permit and increase his space within Ritch’s Gym. This would allow Cuts by Ashton to start offering drop ins! Many members would like to just drop in after their workout and get a fabulous hair cut.
6. Ritch’s Gym wants to have a stronger more professional presence on social media. We are in talks with a company to take over our marketing and get us to the next level! As you continue to support Ritch’s Gym, we promise to continue improving/adding!

WHAT DO I GET WITH MY GYM MEMBERSHIP?

You get full use of all equipment during business hours (3am-11pm). 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 $150

WHY IS THERE AN ANNUAL GYM IMPROVEMENT FEE?

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.

WHAT FORMS DO I NEED TO FILL OUT BEFORE COMING IN?

ALL waivers need to be signed before working out or participating in a jiu-jitsu class. If you are a visitor with a current member and no one is at the desk/office, we have liability waivers on the desk for you to sign before working out. This is only good for one workout. We do require all forms to be signed with a staff member on our software. Office hours are Monday-Friday 10am-2pm/5pm-8pm and Saturdays 9am-1pm.

WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT ARE ACCEPTED?

Ritch’s Personal Training accepts checks, cash, credit card and venmo as forms of payment. Our credit card company charges a 4% charge. All payments must be made in full before services can be scheduled or rendered.

WHAT’S THE FIRST THING I NEED TO DO SO I CAN LOOSE FAT?

1. Join our 1 year/6 month transformation program and sign up for our group classes or personal training. Without a good weight training and nutrition guidance, 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 understanding of how calories work. 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.
