When first getting into weight training many people have concerns about getting injured, getting “bulky” or simply have some fears about training with weights.
Our Strength Fundamentals class is designed to break down the fundamental movements of strength and conditioning, help students gain confidence with low weights and then progressively introduce extra load and intensity as they feel more comfortable.
The goal of the class is to introduce students to the 7 primal movement patterns and teach them how to safely load them:
- Hip Hinge (bending over movements)
- Twist - core strength from rotation
- Gait (running and jumping)
The programming is tailored to new members or people returning to strength training after an extended break.
We first focus on quality functional movement mechanics and then progress the movements by adding reps or weight or a combination.
The programming is focussed on higher reps to develop a strong, powerful foundation that we can build on with our Strength program.
The intensity of Conditioning is also a bit lower so people that are a bit worried about the high intensity interval training or metabolic conditioning in our Strength program can still get their heart rate up in a less intimidating place.
