Coaches Session – 3:30pm on a Friday afternoon the Coaches try and get together to train. This session is a chance for them to be taken through their paces and to work together on different ideas for you. There is always a couple of extra spots available for anyone that wants to jump in. If you want to come along you must BOOK the session as it is limited to 10 people (generally 3 – 4 spots available) and it generally has 3 – 4 elements attached. Come have some fun one day. Movements are a bit more advanced.

Squat Strength: For the next few weeks, we will be bringing in Pause Squats. The squat is a wheel that is forever evolving and there are many great tools and advice available to strengthen and perfect your squat. One of the known strengtheners is to Pause in the bottom so that we are not relying on the bounce or elasticity rebound out of the bottom but rather using our raw strength. Additionally we can put more focus on our torso and maintaining a strong neutral spine. Pause squats will bring a drop in weight but should be more challenging. Everyone will be guided accordingly this week. Once again TRUST THE PROCESS.

Mobility – Who has issues overhead, or squatting, or locking out elbows, or ankle mobility problems. Who is doing mobility everyday. We should all be doing at least 15 minutes of mobility a day. Mobility goes a long way to helping you move better and loosening up tight joints. Be reminded that mobility just before strength will have some effect but doing it as homework is going to be more beneficial. Try and get some sort of mobility done throughout your day. We have many tools, stretches and mobility tool available to us, so make use of them or talk to one of the trainers to assist.
