TIPS: All clients must first take a START: TRX class before signing up for our other TRX classes.  This isn’t a beginner workout, just a special spot for new clients that earns them extra attention for the trainer to show them how to adjust and safely use the TRX.

What is ViPR?

The ViPR tool provides linear, traditional strength training and whole-body integrated training. These factors make it important because your body will move in all planes of motion.  ViPR allows you to perform real-life movements while improving your athletic ability. ViPR comes in a range of weights, easily distinguishable by color.

What are Battle Ropes?

The creator of battle ropes says that the key to their effectiveness is that they work each arm independently, eliminating strength imbalances as they sculpt your muscle. These weighted ropes work your total body and core because you move the ropes in all directions. Fundamental exercises called “the wave” and “crossovers” paired with slamming moves build endurance and power. Trust us, it’s harder than it looks.

 

WHAT ARE MEDICINE BALLS?

This equipment can be thrown, caught, and struck with maximum force and velocity. It provides a training tool for life movements and functional training. A medicine ball combines the qualities of a ball and the qualities of an impact absorbing mitt into one unit.

TIPS: Choose a ball just heavy enough to provide resistance but not so heavy as to alter the structure and speed of the selected movement. 4, 6, and 8 pound balls work for everyone. Even though the resistance is the same, your velocity will increase with the strength, size and power. The heavier balls are used where slower, more strength related exercises are featured.
