FOUNDATIONAL CLASSES

We designed our foundational classes for lifters of all levels. Whether it is your first day or your first year lifting, we offer coaching and specific instruction on all of the basic lifts to get you moving proficiently. Even better, we offer you several options to transition from our foundational classes into more independent training.

Our Classes

Our classes are designed with you in mind. If you have no experience or want to move into powerlifting, check out Strength Groundwork. If your interest is in weightlifting and you have the basic movements down, then take a look at Weightlifting Foundations.

You do not need any experience to start Strength Groundwork. Our coaches will bring you step-by-step through our system that teaches you not only how to perform barbell movements effectively and safely, but also how to use your body in a more balanced and efficient way.


When you join -
 

You will be brought through an intro week (consisting of three classes held at the beginning of each month) where a coach will teach you the fundamentals of the basic barbell movements. You will be brought through this curriculum with a group of new members just like yourself. If you do not want to wait for the next new group, you can schedule to meet privately with a coach to learn these fundamentals for an additional fee. From here, you will work through the first 8-week training cycle that will progressively push you forward.

 

After your first 8 weeks -

 

You will continue into our Strength Groundwork intermediate programming. This training cycle is designed to build an even greater foundation of strength as it increases in intensity and volume.
