“Together we will achieve more” is the Tribe Team Training expression. In Tribe, at Hamptons Gym Corp., we encourage each other and push each other so we can each accomplish greater things.

There are seven seasons in the Tribe year. Each season is six weeks long followed by a free week to give people the opportunity to try new programs. Our local gym offers five different programs: Tribe Kids, Tribe Core, Tribe Punch, Tribe Life and Tribe Fit. The two programs we have taken are Tribe Kids and Tribe Core.

The Tribe coaches are awesome. They follow a specific method of teaching that is consistent and keeps you safe. At each session, the coaches explain each new exercise and shows you how to execute it. They describe the common faults so you don’t get hurt and are aware of what not to do. They provide progression and regression strategies so everyone is able to move forward safely.

Tribe Kids involves exercises that are necessary for kids’ day-to-day activities. Workouts include drills for coordination, speed, strength and stamina. The coaches make it fun by including team games and individual challenges. We especially like how it’s made us faster and stronger.

Tribe Core is a program to strengthen our shoulders, backs and abdominals as well as work on our flexibility. If you are having any physical problems, Tribe can help. Core can also help you improve in sports. We are taking Core classes now and are really enjoying it. The classes are made up of adults whom we have enjoyed spending time with. We work out hard and sweat like crazy.

Although we take only Core now, we would like to try the other Tribe programs in the future. Tribe helps you stay active and is beneficial for many reasons. We would like to participate in the Tough Mudder Half next summer. The Half Mudder is a six-mile race that you run with a team. In the race, there are obstacles containing mud.
