Our primary goal in these one-on-one sessions is to prepare you to join our group classes with confidence and a good base of strength. We will identify your own unique strengths and weaknesses, some of which are yet unknown, to hone pre-existing skills and begin to improve on the things that are holding you back from reaching your goals. You will also be matched up with a Coach for Life who will be your fitness and lifestyle mentor. You will learn how to lift safely and efficiently with lighter weights with a focus on developing a strong technical base. We will slowly add more movements and heavier weight once you are ready. Each session will end with a met-con (a heart pumping workout) which will allow us to measure your progress. Under our guidance, you’ll have the chance to push yourself and put your new skills to the test. This program brings results! During Notch 8 Fundamentals, your body and your mindset will change for the better. We encourage you to take before and after pictures to help capture your transformation.

Our barbell club and competition teams treat training as more of a sport in and of itself, versus a tool to do other things. Both groups still have fun but train more volume during their sessions and aim to take their strength and athletic ability to the next level. Our lifters compete in the sport of weightlifting and other fitness competitions ranging from CrossFit style events to obstacle course races. Serious athletes use these advanced programs as a platform to take their athleticism to the next level for their sport of choice.
