GET FIT (AND STAY SAFE) IN 2017
With renewed commitment to get and stay fit in the New Year, resolutioners are at an 85% risk of sustaining an injury before January 31st.1
To help steer you clear of such set backs, we offer several opportunities to hone your skills in weight training, suspension training, and more. Check out January's line up of special workshops --
Barbell Basics: Friday, Jan 6, 6-7p
This one-hour masterclass covers the basics of the squat and deadlift. Performed correctly, they unlock the power to serious strength gains and massive transformation to your physique. But performed with less than stellar form, results can be lackluster and even injurious to your spine, hips, and knees.
TRX® Intro: Saturday, Jan 7, 9-10a
The most common complaint among new suspension training participants is knee and shoulder pain. This is often because the angle of the exercise and positioning of the handles is suboptimal. Learn the anatomy of the suspension trainer and how to effectively scale exercises up and down, according to your height, fitness level, and goals.
Kettlebell Basics: Sunday, Jan 8, 8:30-9:30a
This one-hour masterclass covers the basics of the kettlebell swing. If it takes 10,000 hours to become an expert, or just 20 hours to become proficient, you could eke out a LOT of swings in the meantime. Learn how to perform essential movements safely.
