How We Train
PROGRAMMING FOR EVERY
Age, Ability, and Goal!
Everyone deserves to live in a body that is strong, mobile, and durable.
That’s why our programming is carefully designed to challenge you safely across a broad range of movements and intensities.
We develop athletic skill (Agility, Balance, and Reaction) through focused games and drills, improve lean muscle mass and power by lifting barbells, throwing medicine balls, and performing calisthenics, and optimize your body’s cardiovascular endurance and fat burning through carefully structured Energy System Training.
How We Train
We break down each day’s workout in the following format:
Given the complex and challenging nature of our training, we make sure our clients are properly warmed up. Breathing technique work always begins this portion of the class followed by a series of mobility-integration couplets. We target a movement pattern with a release drill and then follow it with an exercise to integrate the new pattern in the brain and body.
Clients focus on improving balance, reaction (to auditory, visual, or kinesthetic cues), or agility during this portion of the class. We value the development of these skills to ensure that our clients have better control of their bodies in more dynamic settings.
Everything from unloaded jump training (plyometrics), speed strength work (medicine balls and kettlebells), power generation (olympic weightlifting), or maximal strength (heavy squats, deadlifts, weighted gymnastics movements) will be found in this section of the day’s training. We train across many intensities and loading patterns to develop more balanced strength expressions. Our clients are not only capable of lifting heavy weights, but they are capable of moving lighter weights explosively. Our clients build lots of lean muscle, but they are also mobile, too.
ENERGY SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT
Our carefully designed conditioning efforts build your body’s engine and boost your energy levels. By manipulating training intensities and exercise selection, our clients are able to boost cardiovascular endurance without sacrificing gains of strength and lean muscle mass. Some days are longer duration (20+ minutes), paced, and continuous efforts. Other days are full-go, max-effort sessions (10 sec – 2 minutes) with lots of recovery between intervals of work.
