Strength & Conditioning
In this class, designed for average to the advanced, we emphasize a whole fitness that includes progressive real strength training, with added focus on the varied conditioning we need for sport and for everyday life. Since life is 3 dimensional (you are more likely to need to lift a box from the ground, turn and place it on a shelf overhead than you are going to to need to do standing bicep curls), the workout will focus on using your legs, hips, back and abdomen, through rotational movements of varying intensities. Your body will learn to brace an unbalanced weight or explosively transfer that weight from one side of the body to the other. There will be lifting, jumping, throwing, and twisting, some heavy, some fast. Whether you want to call it bootcamp or conditioning, this workout moves at a high intensity and is always changing, just as the way life (or the ball) comes at you. Don’t worry, you will get your cardio, your muscle tone and your 6-pack. But it will come with real world strength.
