OUR TRAINING PHILOSOPHY
Maximum output cannot be achieved without good technique and mechanics. The main sources of injury in training are (1) incorrect technique and (2) unsafe loading. You are not sustaining fitness if you are injured. As part of helping you achieve your fitness goals, we consider it our duty to keep you safe and injury-free. We therefore teach to safely and effectively perform movements with proper mechanics. We’re strict- on form, movement, standards, and safety. You will be coached here. Guided and led by individuals who have studied these methodologies, made it their major, and continue to learn as practitioners and coaches. This is not to say that you won’t get injured- injuries happen all the time in all manners of life- but we are committed to minimizing your risk of injury and never lose focus on doing so.
There is a proper balance between technique and intensity. We will push you in load and intensity until we see your mechanics start to degrade, at which point we will scale both back to refocus you on the mechanics of the movement and continue that back and forth tweaking until we find your optimal levels of each. Done properly, we believe that this practice leads to improved mechanics at higher and higher levels of intensity, which in turn increases fitness and health.
We believe that our style of training is beneficial to everyone and anyone. Your needs and those of the professional athlete differ by degree not by kind. Increased power, speed, strength, cardiovascular and respiratory endurance, flexibility, stamina, coordination, agility, balance, and coordination are each important to everyone- they are the cornerstones of functionality. The amazing truth is that the very same methods that elicit optimal response in the professional athlete will optimize the same response in any other human.
We want all of our athletes to enjoy and maximize their experience here and we are determined to make that a reality. So whether you are young or old, male or female, athlete or couch potato, we invite you to try us out. Who knows, we may change your life forever.
