Entry Level Full Gym/Fitness Facility Program Now Available in The MTNTOUGH+ App


Eliminate the intimidation factor when it comes to working out in a fitness facility. GYM
ON-RAMP incorporates functional, dynamic movements on basic gym equipment. So
grab your keys and hit the road – it’s time to level up and go.

Why We Built It

Don’t just pay for your gym membership: Use it. GYM ON-RAMP was built to eliminate the intimidation of navigating the ins and outs of fitness equipment in a public setting. This self-guided program cuts through the confusion of using basic fitness equipment found in most gyms through a series of functional, dynamic movements that deliver a full body workout.

The goal? To provide you with a gameplan before you even enter the fitness facility. In this three-day, two-week program, each movement will be demonstrated by trainer Sarah Maschino in short explainer videos along with an outline of the day’s workout. Sarah will offer tips on technique and explain ways to ramp up or ramp down, depending on your fitness level and stamina. At the end of this two-week session, you should feel comfortable in a gym setting and understand how to use basic equipment with confidence.

To complete GYM ON-RAMP, you will need access to a gym – either at home or in a fitness facility – for movements that uses basic equipment like barbells, dumbbells, a bench, kettlebells, resistance bands, TRX straps and stability balls. Each workout is 30 to 40 minutes long and includes a warmup, a series of mobility and muscle activation compound movements and a cool down.

Whether you want to kickstart your fitness journey or switch up a lifting routine to one that’s full-body, GYM ON-RAMP will get you off the couch and out the door, ready to hit the gym and transform your life.

Meet Your Coach: Sarah

A Division-1-soccer-player-turned-personal-trainer, Sarah knows a thing or two about what it takes to get stronger and become a better athlete. It’s all part of the training process – and one she is passionate about. When the Tennessee native isn’t crushing life in the mountains, she’s busy fostering mental toughness for all levels (from beginner to elite) by creating workouts intended to push you to your limits – physically and mentally – and make you stronger inside and out.

“Fitness should be treated as a means to conquer all of your passions — whether it be recreational, professional, spiritual, or your relationships,” says Sarah, who is certified by the National Academy of Sports Medicine and has certificates in Corrective Exercise and Performance Enhancement. 

“We can build our bodies and minds to gain confidence and toughness for any endeavor we choose!  But we have to take the first step. Even if we need our hand held a bit.”
