So how does one start a fitness journey?
Great question! At the beginner level (btw it’s the level everyone starts at!).
Start by learning how to move your body safely and correctly before adding any weight. And then when you’re ready to add weight it, use trainer bars and light weight as you keep learning the movement patterns. We encourage a slow, steady and safe progression. Additionally, our coaches are watching and guiding your movements during class to ensure you get the best (and safest) workout experience. (p.s. you’re still getting an effective workout with light weights – promise!)
Our programming is designed with endless ways to modify! Can’t do a pull-up, use bands or do an inverted row. Can’t do a push-up from the floor, do it from the wall. Our classes encourage modifications. We begin every class discussing ways to modify movements so you can choose what works best for you. We meet you where you are!
It’s time to Become Better.
This is the Alamo 180 way.
“Thanks for offering Foundations! It has made fitness way more accessible to someone like me, who would have otherwise been too intimidated to visit a box!”
After you go through Foundations you will:
- Learn that injuries can be avoided when you know how to move correctly and safely
- Learn how to scale any movement so the workout fits your needs
- Know what the lingo means (i.e, WOD = workout of the day)
- Discover just how fun and do-able exercise can be!
“The Foundations at Alamo 180 was exactly what I needed to jump start my fitness goals again. I’m aware of what works for me: consistency with nutrition, commitment to the workouts and most importantly, a strong sense of community. After the first day with you guys, I knew I’d be back- without a doubt!”
“It was a great opportunity to get introduced to strength and conditioning”
“The content was fantastic!”
How long will Foundations last? The Foundations seminar is 1.5 hours. You can expect several repetitions of each movement (we learn through doing), lots of rest, and lots of explanation. Come as you are and we will meet you where you are!
Will Foundations be a high intensity workout? No. The emphasis is on skill development, not intensity. Foundations is designed with the purpose of teaching you proper movement patterns so you can move safely, correctly, and comfortably.
I’ve done boot camp before, but I am new to Alamo 180’s programming, do I still need to take Foundations? We highly encourage you to take the class. Skills requires repeated practice. And we can’t tell you how many times new members come into our box with bad form. Foundations helps you unlearn any bad habits you may have picked up (happens to us all) and learn how to move more efficiently. Always strive to be a learner!
“From the moment I walk in I felt welcomed and encouraged.”
“Awesome….loved it! Thanks!”
