"No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful.
Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it"
- Hebrews 12:11
Why do we require a Fundamentals Course?
**You will learn in a low-stress environment with one-on-one or small group attention from Coach Glen. If you're part of a small group, you'll be with others at a similar fitness level so you don't have to worry about being intimidated by being thrown right into a group WOD. You'll have a much easier time learning the movements when there's no music blasting or clock ticking.
**You must notify Coach Glen of any pre-existing injuries or mobility problems prior to you beginning group WODs and we can then assist you in improving your flexibility or working around any limitations you have.
**You will learn all the movements necessary to complete the WODs we do on a daily basis, which is beneficial both to you and to other clients. During group WODs the Coach will have time to refine technique on that day's movements but will not have enough time to teach movements from scratch. If all clients possess a similar baseline of proficiency, the Coach will be able to move throughout the class and make spot corrections as necessary as opposed to focusing strictly on one client.
**You will learn to do all the movement properly from the beginning. This way you will not have to 'unlearn bad habits'. By learning proper form and range of motion, you will maximize the results you get from your workouts while minimizing the risk of injury.
**You will build personal relationships with our trainers and your fellow athletes from the beginning as you become part of our strong community atmosphere.
