Welcome to ARG Core! My workouts are designed as full body, functional workouts. They will make you make you stronger, faster and increase your resilience to injury.
My training philosophy is simple: I wanted a fitness training that would consistently challenge me and while building overall athleticism and preventing injuries.
I design multi-month training regimens that generally follow this pattern:
Strength Focused Training for 2-3 weeks
Power Focused Training for 2-3 weeks
Endurance / Work Capacity Training -3-4 weeks
Recovery/Agility 1-2 weeks
Feel free to jump in with us wherever you are. Just let me know so I can adjust the workout to your needs. (If you are working out on your own – feel free to send me a message!)
Conditioning Class: These workouts are challenging and dual purposed. If you are already in shape, active in your sport of choice and would like a handy, go-to workout to round things out – this will work well. If you would like to get into shape, or begin to build overall athleticism – these workouts are for you.
Advanced Class: These workouts are hard. They take strong, fit people and make them stronger and fitter. Instructor approval required. I’m looking for the ability to properly execute a KB Swing, Clean & Press, Snatch. Men should be able to do 10 real pull-ups (no kipping) women should be able to do 5.
Quite a few of us are training for the up coming Goruck Challenge in May of 2014. The Advanced Class workouts, between now and May will be designed with the Challenge in mind. Feel free to join our team!
