LUXFIT has an innovative concept: fitness suitable for every day, without extreme discipline but with measurable and lasting results.
Since its opening in 2012, LUXFIT offers individual fitness programmes, developed with the needs of each customer in mind. “Individual, short and succinct,” as Marc Leinen, director of the gym in Junglinster, summarizes. “Only short, intensive training sessions of 30 to 45 minutes each can easily be integrated into your daily life. We establish an individual training programme with each customer, which is adapted and overhauled regularly so that all muscle groups are trained and weak points worked on. This is not the place for group exercises, sauna and wellness! All that counts is efficiency and individuality.”
This kind of approach needs highly qualified staff. All of the coaches have a bachelor degree in fitness economy or a similar qualification. All in all, there are twelve instruc- tors at the three locations in Junglinster, Leudelange and Trier. This ensures that there is always a coach to speak to. Cheating or a careless training attitude are not permis- sible, as our editor knows only too well. The trainers see everything and correct when an exercise is not executed accurately. “It is far more efficient to perform an exercise five times correctly than to do it ten times incorrectly,” says Marc. Exercises are not only performed with your classic fitness machines but a lot of the times with your own body weight or with small equipment such as the kettle bell. “Here, your own body is your sparring partner, rather than the weight of the equipment. And when you go on holiday, your coach provides you with your own exercise programme, which you can do without any kind ofequipment.”
In contrast to other gyms, the atmosphere is familial and the space manageable, in addition to the upmarket ambience. People know each other, everybody is greeted individually and nobody has to feel bad because they are not (yet) fit as a fiddle. The founder of LUXFIT, Sebastian Backes, explains the concept thus: “For us it’s important that we begin at people’s starting points – health wise, concerning their fitness and especially their goals. The next component is their availability. All these factors contribute to the final result: a highly individual fitness concept. A good car motor runs for 300 000 kilometres; it’s similar with a healthy body. Beside strength, other skills, such as stamina, speed and coordination are a focus.”
Certainly, nutrition is also part of the programme. “For a lot of our clients, losing a few pounds is something that, next to fitness, is part of their goal. We can also help in this area with a nutrition plan and tips. If desired, we can create an individual cookbook for clients with the collabo- ration of our partner,” says Marc Leinen.
