Our metabolic conditioning and multimodal sport training involves the necessary components needed to become a better athlete in the sport of fitness.
Customized programming, weak point analysis/improvement, and new progressions for new movements will be accessible to you with the highest quality coaching expected from our coaches.
Through weightlifting, gymnastics, and metabolic conditioning we assess each skill and build a program based on individual needs. The program is for athletes of all abilities.
Each one of our coaches will address the following:
- Weightlifting: Focus will be on building strength and technique of the clean and jerk, snatch and all other related lifts. Focus will also be placed on barbell cycling of the movements during workouts and under fatigue. Coaches will utilize video analysis for technique and progressions.
- Gymnastics: Progressions from basic body positioning and awareness to advanced gymnastics movements. Coaches will watch and evaluate videos on specific gymnastics/skill movements in order to create appropriate progressions.
- Metabolic Conditioning: Workouts will combine multiple energy systems, movements, time domains, and rep schemes to enhance an athlete's sport performance.
