Mayhem may be best known for coaching elite athletes, but also offers programming for everyday gym-goers. Darren Hunsucker writes Mayhem’s programming. Known as the winningest coach in the sport, Hunsucker helped Froning win all of his titles. And he also happens to be Froning’s cousin.

Why Choose Mayhem Athlete Affiliate Gym Programming?

1. Save Time.

Christi Novak used to own a CrossFit affiliate and remembers how much time she spent stressing over gym programming. At one point, she was writing separate programming for kids, teens, lifting and running classes.

“I overthought every workout,” she said. “And I probably spent a good ten hours a week at least, on programming.”

Now, Novak is the Affiliate Coordinator for Mayhem Athlete Affiliate. In her new role, she’s learned that outsourcing programming can give you back those hours. And she added, “it takes the guesswork out of it.”

2. Explore 11 Specialty Gym Programming Options.

In addition to the daily gym programming, Mayhem Athlete Affiliate also provides gym owners with 11 other specialty programs.

Several options are provided for age groups, like kids, pre-teens and life (masters athletes). Others are movement-focused, like weightlifting, running, bodybuilding, spin and endurance. Lastly, Mayhem offers an at-home option and fun monthly challenges.

3. Provide a Variety of Scaling Modifications.

Mayhem provides six days of gym programming each week, plus an optional cardio/aerobic piece. Each day of training includes competitive and RX levels, plus two levels of scaling options.

Further, Mayhem Athlete Affiliate provides various equipment substitution options. Since not all gyms have equipment like sandbags, ropes or sleds, alternate ideas are provided.

Finally, Novak explained that programming includes a large-class option as well. In the event that class size limits equipment, affiliates can run partner or team workouts.

4. Help Your Coaches Improve.

Novak is adamant that outsourcing gym programming will make your coaches better.

“The real secret is that every workout has extensive notes within it,” she said. “So coaches will find themselves knowing exactly how to lead the class. But also for each movement, what we’re looking for, what we want to see and how athletes should attack the workout.”

She noted feedback from gym owners: “A month or two into using our programming, suddenly all my coaches are coaching better.”

5. Gain Valuable Business Advice.

When you sign up as a Mayhem affiliate, you not only get gym programming, but business guidance as well. Mayhem affiliates get access to an exclusive resource library. It covers everything from hiring and developing coaches to improving member retention.

Further, affiliate owners have two options for asking questions or getting support along the way. First, you get access to a private Facebook Group to connect with other Mayhem affiliates around the world. Second, Novak and Hunsucker invite you to join a monthly live call.

Finally, the Mayhem team prides itself on providing one-on-one help whenever their gyms need it.

“When you have a question about the programming, we get back to you that day,” said Novak. “The level of customer support you receive is really a one-on-one type of deal. We’re really connected to every single member, and get back to you and help you along the way.”

In Summary: Mayhem Gym Programming Offers More.

Mayhem Athlete Affiliate Programming is available on PushPress Train for $129 a month. If you’re anything like Christi Novak was - consistently stressed out over gym programming, it might be time to make the switch.

“The real key is, let’s say I’m now doing five hours or programming a week,” said Novak. “What can I do with those five hours of time? Maybe I can work on my client retention, work on getting new leads, or just spend more time with family.”

She added, “It’s really going to free up more time for your personal time, or give you more time to work on your business instead of inside your business. And then you’ll find yourself being much more successful.”
