Training & Programming

Training & Programming.

Maximise the potential of our equipment, create unforgettable experiences and deliver results that last.

In order to guarantee effective implementation of products or programmes, education is essential. With our ever-changing industry and evolving exercise trends it is becoming more important than ever to ensure your members get the most engaging training experience and the very best results. We never stop learning, we’re always striving to improve. And so should you.

We believe in creating the very best learning experience for our customers through face-to-face
training, online learning and continual support. We have created a tiered education system to provide our customers with all of the knowledge and help they require.

Tiered Education Structure:

Product Workshops.

Learn how to get the best out of equipment you have invested in.

Instructor Certification.

Gain recognised qualifications required to coach professionally.

Group Programming.

Deliver popular and varied classes within your gym.

Product Workshops.

Product Training Workshops are designed to give customers a better understanding of Escape Fitness products, whilst developing their skills and knowledge.

These workshops are cost effective, yet full of information that will enhance any trainer’s ability to run one-to-one and group sessions with clients.

Our workshops are available in two formats.

In-person training within your club, backed up by online resources.
Each workshop lasts two hours and your club would purchase three or four workshops (covering different products) to run on the same day. This training would be delivered to a group of your club’s trainers, with a maximum group size of ten. The participants would also get access to online support material, including a library of specially-filmed exercise videos and a comprehensive course manual.

Online training.

For clubs that have smaller numbers of trainers (where running a group workshop would be impractical) we offer online delivery. This is also ideal for self-employed trainers. The online programme gives you access to all of the support materials mentioned above. This means you can learn at your own pace from home or wherever you have internet access.

For both delivery formats, there is also an online assessment. Successful completion of the workshop and the assessment leads to a certificate as evidence of completion.

Comprehensive information packed in to every workshop.

We’ve packed a lot into these workshops. Each one covers a wealth of information, including the following: 

  •  Key movements and exercises to perform with the product.
  •  Useful teaching points for the exercises.
  •  How to increase member interaction with the product.
  •  How to improve member experience with the training method.
  •  Health and safety aspects when using the equipment.
  •  Uses of the training tools, including dos and don’ts.
  •  A short product-based workout to use with members.


These are the perfect workshops to empower a training team to deliver exciting training sessions to their clients. These workshops also ensure that club owners purchasing the equipment can enable their trainers to teach safe use of it and maintain it correctly.

Instructor Certification.

Our instructor training courses provide customers with the most in-depth knowledge into a product or training method. They are very practical and hands on, yet crucially, always cover the need-to-know theory. So, trainers can implement their skills successfully with all clients.

Why certification is essential.

Becoming certified is essential for companies and trainers aiming for the highest level of training and member experience. Our certification courses are designed to give you the hows and whys behind the training method so trainers gain the confidence to train all members.

The importance of in-depth research, practical knowledge and ‘in the field’ experience are paramount to the way we create our instructor courses. This is why we create the very best course content and support options to allow our customers to deliver the best training methods to their members.

Group Programming.

The rise of the boutique clubs proves that people’s taste for fitness is changing. There’s a growing demand for fun, fast group training, usually in a HIIT style. It’s why boutiques are doing so well, and why established clubs need to revisit their offering in order to compete.

Now any club can bring fantastic group training experiences to their members. Escape offers you a suite of programmes with everything you need to get going straight out of the box.

Take ownership of the group classes in your club.

Many clubs leave programme development to one or two of their training staff. Initially that’s fine, as long as the trainers are competent with the training tools and best practice for group training. But this is rarely an ideal solution as trainers seldom stay at one club for long.

The danger is clear: if the trainers who develop your highly popular, well performing functional training programme leave, they take the programming with them. That can happen literally if you don’t secure IP for the programming, or as a consequence of having no-one else able to deliver it.

Your ‘BUSINESS IN A BOX’ group training solution.

Escape has the solution: a complete package of trainer instruction and workout programming that guarantees you consistent delivery over the long term. Regardless of changes in personnel, the programming stays in place, fully owned by the club and designed to be run by any competent instructor.

Everything you need is included, physical and online resources:

  • Comprehensive instruction manuals for trainers.
  • Videos and coaching notes of ready-to-run workouts and individual exercises.
  • Instruction specific to each type of equipment.
  • Marketing materials to help you promote the programmes to members.

Instructor training and programming in each package.

By choosing these programmmes, a club’s trainers get access to all of the resources online, in addition to hard-copy manuals and workout cards. This includes specially-filmed videos of workouts and individual exercises. Having access to these is a great teaching resource, and ensures all the content is there on a trainer’s phone whenever they need it as a reminder of correct form and application.

Why go group functional?

Group functional training actually achieves two things at once:

1. It instructs people in the proper use of functional equipment. Functional tools aren’t like treadmills and fixed CV machines: you can’t just give people a couple of minutes’ instruction. There’s a need for deeper knowledge and confidence in how to use the equipment, and group training led by competent instructors achieves this.

2. It’s the best workout most people will ever have. For a challenging, fun, varied and results-focused workout experience, nothing quite matches a great functional workout in a group. Members who get into this style of training are more likely to feel fully engaged with fitness – and with the club and trainers making it happen for them.

These programmes personalise functional training for members. They get intense periods of instruction from trainers and the best workouts they’ve ever had. With three unique programmes in Escape’s suite, now every base is covered for every club and member.

The core principles of Escape's programmes

When you invest in programming it needs to be there for consistent delivery over the long term. To do this, there are a few essential features of our functional group programming:


By offering you a suite of programming styles, you can select which ones suit your brand and are right for your target audiences.


By including trainer education as well as the programming itself, we’ve guaranteed that all your trainers can deliver the programmes. This means you can grow the frequency of classes, either on a single site or across multiple locations.


All of the programmes can be shaped to suit people fairly new on their fitness journey, and change with them as they develop their ability and needs.


Variety is one of the things that makes functional training such a great experience, so our programming includes multiple different workouts to keep people coming back.


Working out should push people hard, but most people also need a sense of fun to keep them motivated. So we include teamwork, partner drills, tests and challenges to create a real buzz during the workout.
