Everyone Can Be a Warrior!

Our Warrior Built program is based on strength and conditioning. We work through 8-10 week strength training cycles, 3 times a week (Monday, Wednesday and Thursday), where we focus on squats, deadlifts and benchpress, paired with a short High Intensity Circuit workout for conditioning. On Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays we focus on longer High Intensity circuit training workouts, which focus on cardio and conditioning. On Fridays we also dedicate 12-15 minutes at the end of class to run a group stretching and mobility workout. Saturdays are usually a mixed bag, focusing on supporting the week’s workouts. 

The type of training we do is great for every type of sport from hockey to marathons, but also helps you in your every day life and functions, such as picking up your kids or groceries, or going up a flight of stairs and not being winded. Every class and movement is designed to be scaled and varied for intermediate to advanced abilities.

Strength Training - Strength training can provide significant functional benefits and improvement in overall health and well-being, including increased bone, muscle, tendon and ligament strength and toughness, improved joint function, reduced potential for injury, increased bone density, increased metabolism, increased fitness, improved cardiac function, and improved lipoprotein lipid profiles, including elevated HDL ("good") cholesterol.

High Intensity - When it comes to calorie burning during exercise, research shows that short, high-intensity interval workouts burn more calories than longer, lower-intensity aerobic workouts. According to the American College of Sports Medicine, not only are more calories burned in short, high intensity exercise, but cardiovascular function improves faster.

Functional training - involves exercises which allow individuals to perform the activities of daily life more easily and without injuries. Functional training involves mainly weight bearing activities targeted at core muscles of the abdomen and lower back.

Studies show that those who follow a vigorous exercise program experience all the benefits of lifestyle physical activity and a moderate exercise program; they also see a greater increase in fitness. Additionally, there is a somewhat greater reduction in chronic disease risk for those who follow a vigorous exercise program.

If someone is new to the gym doesn't have any experience with movements such as kettlebell swings, deadlifts, benchpress, front squats, back squats, pressing, and power cleans, we require a minimum of 5 personal training sessions to learn the techniques and movements. We require this for your own personal safety, and the safety of those around you in the class. Form is paramount in our facility.
