There are many avenues to achieve your health and fitness goals. Whether it’s general strength and conditioning or a specific sport, I can coach you to perform at your best.
PG is fully equipped with an arsenal of training options to improve health & human performance. I focus on strength, mobility, and stability through the use of dumbbells, barbells, kettlebells, bands, and bodyweight exercises. Training in this manner builds strength from the center outward, so you move and feel better.
My outdoor training program was born out of my interest in the primal movement patterns and exercises. So, we get as close to that as possible here at PG…we drag sleds; pull sleds; throw and slam medicine balls; move with kettlebells; and perform lots of bodyweight exercises.
PG can teach you the proper techniques to produce safe and fluid kettlebell lifts. Kettlebell training is an amazing combination of muscle strength AND muscle endurance. It doesn’t stop there though. Learning and improving on kettlebell technique takes concentration and focus on the skill at hand. I find that clients get the opportunity to let go of all stresses because kettlebell training requires their full attention.
Another advantage to kettlebell training is that it offers a break from traditional strength training routines, i.e., dumbbell and barbell exercise. Not only is it a different stimulus for the body, but it makes working out more enjoyable AND challenging. Furthermore, for those who wish to take kettlebell training to the next level, there are kettlebell competitions where various lifts are performed for a specific time period, usually 5 or 10 minutes. A true test of physical strength and mental concentration.
PG can train you to become a strong triathlete. Though training for optimal health and fitness is crucial, I believe that training for sport or a competition can dramatically increase your motivation and compliance to train hard, eat well, and stay the course. Triathlons are great events for all ages, and with various triathlon distances, it really doesn’t matter your fitness level. Sign up for a sprint tri, and you’re off to the races. Plus, you rarely find yourself in a training rut because you can mix it up with strength, swim, bike, and run workouts.
