Cross Training/Barbell Class
Training with barbells is surprisingly overlooked. The gym is meant for barbells and making yourself stronger. The focus of these classes will involve all of the basic biomechanical functions of the human body: push, pull, hinge, carry, lunge, squat. This sounds boring and repetitive however, strength and efficiency is never a product of variation. All of my clients regardless of their situation in life undergo barbell training and I reinforce these patterns every session to promote health both inside and outside of the gym. Look for this class to do the very same!
Interval style training using body weight mechanics and other free weight modalities. The class is usually set to an interval theme of 20 seconds on and 10 seconds off bouts of training. This class would be great if you want to get into the gym quickly and have an effective workout that does not take over an hour.
Core work is like getting your teeth cleaned. It keeps you healthy but it is not the coolest looking thing to do. We have 4 main areas of the our “core”: anterior, posterior, lateral and rotary. Training ourselves in multiple planes and often multiple planes in one exercise is going to be the most economical for our body and for our time management. This class is not us beating you up with 1000 crunches for an hour. This class will cover both superficial and deep musculature associated with our core and how to program these mechanics into your daily operations. This class is extremely beneficial to everyone because everyone has back pain. Simple solution is to get stronger!
This is our “power lifting” class. We focus on compound movements with a few accessory exercises towards the end of class. Our aim for this class is to allow our members to become proficient using a barbell under heavy loads. However, do not let this detour you from coming. Heavy is relative and this class is for all ages and ability levels!
The programming for this class is based around a HIIT style of training. It is only 30 minutes long and is a great option for those who want to get in and out of the gym quickly. A lot of studies are being done with HIIT and the physiological benefits of performing this style of class on a regular basis…so, we have compiled the studies and have programmed this class to match them! Intervals are usually 30 seconds on and 30 seconds off formatting.
Kettle bells have been used by the soviets for decades to help supplement their Olympic athletes. This class incorporates the use of kettle bells in an Olympic format. You will be performing cleans, snatches, carries and presses. Kettle bell is a great challenge and has a learning curve however, our great instructors will take the time to teach you properly.
This workout incorporates the use of sand bags to achieve a full body workout. At the gym we love to teach our members how to move correctly, absorb impact and make your body’s more resilient. This class does just that…with the use of one sandbag, you will be pushing, pulling, crawling and squatting for a challenging but fun workout.
