What is Foundations?

Foundations is designed for anyone who would like to join our group classes. Whether you have been sedentary, generally active, or an elite athlete, the foundations course is tailored to prepare you for technical proficiency that is a required learning opportunity for our "Vital" group classes.

During this time you will be introduced to our movement curriculum, discuss basic nutrition, class programming, our community and all of the proper movements required for the Olympic lifts, power lifts, gymnastic skills, metabolic conditioning, and workout tracking. Proper technique will be taught along with a progressive introduction to each movement that you will see in our group classes.

  • Squats (overhead, front, back, air squats)
  • Deadlift (clean, deadlift, sumo deadlift)
