Intimate vs Transactional relationships and why we are different

Humans thrive on relationships. We form them regularly and with almost any kind of entity, like a friend, partner, or pet. We can even form relationships with characters in books, TV shows, and films as well. 

While many of you reading this are more comfortable spending time alone, we almost always thrive when we’re in the company of others. 

“Intimate vs Transactional” Relationships

There is a popular phrase out there known as “intimate, not transactional”. You can get a transactional relationship almost anywhere. At the supermarket, the service station, or at a big box gym, where the guy behind the counter barely acknowledges you as he swipes your membership card. 

This is all well and good, but those relationships rarely last, and your loyalty to that business changes as quickly as the price of bread or milk. 

Then there are the intimate relationships we form. With our spouse, family, and close friends; maybe our doctor or other trusted professionals.

This is where Iron Roots thrives.

We work on a one-to-one basis. 

The Personal Touch

Your fitness journey at Iron Roots will always begin with one-on-one coaching, either via a small group class or with an individually designed personal training session. This is how we earn your trust. We don’t sell you on cheap memberships and long-term contracts; we coach you with expertise and care.

Trust is a crucial part of this equation.

You may have been burned by other fitness instructors or programs in the past that promises unrealistic results. You may have been sold the dream by a nutrition program promising lifelong weight loss—as long as you’re starving yourself or buying their meal-replacement products.

These experiences take time to recover from, and intimate relationships are the most effective way to do so.
