Class Descriptions and Registration

Strength and Performance

Skills and strength building with a seasonal focus. Interval work, circuits, balance and mobility with a emphaisis on building coordination, muscular endurance, cardio vascular capacity, applied power,and sport-specific skills.

Maximal Strength Development

Every performance, be it a daily routine or a special athletic event, benefits from a solid foundation of strength. The meat of Maximum Strength Training is not the sizzle and flash seen among some of the latest workout trends, but rather the fundamental lifts that have faithfully served humankind over the millennia and consistently delivered results. When the body is ready variety, as seen in much of the high intensity multiplanar circuit training today, can be a crucial part of the performance spectrum. However, variety should not be mistaken for progression. Maximum Strength, like any solid foundation, is built slowly, inch by inch, kilo by kilo. On the surface it may seem to lack spice, but the results are undeniable and readily applied to all athletic endeavors.

Details: Each program runs in a series with class 1/week. The class (1:15) is broken up into a dynamic warm up and heavy lifts which will be followed by assistance lifts and/or circuits. Participants  will be evaluated and filmed throughout the series and start with weights and maneuvers appropriate to their abilities. This is a progressive course, everyone will have access to their stats online and be given homework each week to perform on their own several days prior to the next class.
