Programs for Group Training:

  • Semi-Private Training — With semi-private training, clients are grouped into classes of up to six participants. Each trainee starts with in-depth instruction for the foundational barbell exercises and is then placed on a customized strength training program to suit their individual goals. Every session is conducted under the watchful eye of an experienced coach who is there to guide, correct and motivate. The small class size ensures that each trainee gets the attention and real-time feedback they need to maximize their progress in the gym and get the best possible return on their training investment;
  • Barbell Club Open Gym — Once a trainee has worked with a staff coach and has demonstrated proficiency in the basic barbell lifts, they will be eligible to join our barbell club sessions and begin taking ownership of their training. Each client will be given a customized, regularly-updated training program designed to help them reach their individual goals. A qualified staff coach will be available during barbell club sessions to provide ongoing support and help clients navigate the ups and downs of their training program.

We’ll also cover basic nutrition guidelines and equipment recommendations so you’ll have all the tools you need to train effectively on your own;
