WHAT TO EXPECT DURING A CLASS
Regardless if the individual goal is physical independence or athletic dominance, our approach to fitness only varies in degrees, not by type, for all of our members. We promote and pursue fitness that is grounded in functionality and longevity.
Our small group, coach-led classes include a warm-up, mobility work, instruction, and a workout, all of which change daily, but include either a focus on or a combination of bodyweight movements, plyometrics, gymnastics, calisthenics, bodybuilding (hypertrophy), powerlifting (bench press, deadlift, back squat), weightlifting (snatch, clean, jerk), running, rowing, biking, skiing, metabolic conditioning (“metcons”), etc. We promote warming up appropriately before anything, as well as spending time improving range of motion and mobility. We know that our members must have sufficient range of motion before they can then develop stability, and finally meaningful, longterm strength through that full range of motion.
We are very firm in our belief of teaching technique first, helping our members then find consistency in that technique or movement, and then finally adding in appropriate levels of intensity. It is our intention to teach all movement(s) thoughtfully, methodically, and specifically based on what we have learned through many courses and certifications from leading organizations like USA Weightlifting and CrossFit, Inc., and of course from many, many years of observing and coaching.
While we do believe methodically programmed constant variance (meaning, not random) makes for a better fitness program, especially when intensity is applied, we also believe and promote a hierarchy in our approach to strength and conditioning. We know that any program that looks to improve anyone’s health or fitness should not only include but must start and end with nutrition. Most simply put: eat real food, and enough of it support your health and fitness. From there, our focus turns to improving metabolic conditioning (cardiorespiratory endurance), then improving gymnastics (moving the body in space), then weightlifting & throwing (moving objects around or away from the body), and finally, sport. Though this progression is our priority, it is not always or necessarily linear in achievement. Moreover, we view fitness as something pursued for a lifetime, not as something one completes.
