Strength E.P.I.C. Performance
Muscular and aerobic endurance are the basis for any good fitness program, whether you're training for a marathon or want to be able to run around with your kids. Your coaches will use unique combinations of movements and program formats to help you push your boundaries of endurance in a fun group environment.
We utilize kettlebells, dumbbells, medicine balls, battle ropes, bands, and body weight movements in class to help you generate more strength and speed, which equates to power. Power movements require more muscles to work, which requires more energy, burns more calories, and most importantly gets results.
The workouts are different each and every day, but one common variable is intensity. The group environment allows you to get outside your comfort zone and push to a level of fitness you wouldn't be able to achieve working out alone. Fellow PC members will help you push the envelope, while your coach keeps an eye on your form and makes sure you're working in safe and efficient positions.
Endurance, power, and intensity are not enough for a complete fitness program. You also need the coordination, balance, mobility, and stability to keep your body in the correct positions. In class you will work on unstable surfaces such as Bosu balls and exercise balls along with single leg and core movements to improve your overall coordination.
Class starts with a group mobility warm up, followed by an explanation of the workout format for that day and then a demonstration of the movements you will be performing. You then have 40-45 minutes of good, hard training ahead of you.
Coaches are there to help you learn new movements, correct form, and modify workouts in case you are nursing an injury or dealing with chronic pain but still want to train.
