Class Rules & Expectations:
An innovative approach to training – working on a solid fitness foundation while staying focused on each student’s individual goals. The program will include instruction in movement training, injury reduction, linear and lateral speed development, foot speed and agility, proper weight training techniques, explosive power development, and functional strength training. Students are closely supervised as the instructor takes them through an intense 40-45 minute workout and attention is always paid to proper technique and safety.
The workout consists of functionally sound movement training, strength training and conditioning with a strong focus on basic and proper technique. The workout becomes progressively more challenging once basic techniques have been mastered. Training groups are kept small, no more than 5 per group, to allow maximum small group attention and focus on each groups’ goals.
