Our Legends program is designed to improve your over all health and help you become stronger and faster, but more importantly, it’s all about fun, vitality, community, and long-term health and function. We are looking to add vigor to your life and help you do the things you want to do.
We use functional movements with our athletes, meaning we teach them how to move properly. You’ll learn how to stand up and sit down using the correct muscles. We’ll teach you how to brace your core when picking something up. We’ll safely elevate your heart rate to improve your cardiovascular system. And you’ll have a good time.
If a client has an old injury or a mobility concern, we simply modify movements and apply very moderate amounts of intensity. Intensity might be slowly squatting to a box with only body weight as resistance to start. That level of intensity might slowly increase to include a small dumbbell as resistance, and we might remove the box at some point. Then we might add a light barbell, and then a heavier one after that.
The idea is progressive overload with strength work, and we take the same approach with conditioning. Walking briskly might become running, which might become pushing a sled or using a rowing machine.
Results don’t come instantly, but they will come steadily in you attend regularly. You can speed up the process by addressing your diet. Very simply, reduce the amount of sugar and processed carbohydrates in your diet and eat more vegetables. A person’s diet is more complicated than that, but we’ve found that simple advice helps bring about dramatic changes. We advise you to track your sugar intake for a week, then identify places where you can easily reduce it.
You can expect a little initial muscular soreness as you start the program, but know that slightly sore muscles are normal and to be expected. You’re “waking them up.” Should any joint pain occur due to old injuries or a lack of flexibility, we will adjust the movements for you and work with your care provider. We never push through pain and will always make you comfortable with every movement.
As you train, you can expect strength levels to increase, and we’ll keep track of them so you can see for yourselves. These gains are steady, and in some cases they are dramatic. You’ll also improve your conditioning. Very quickly, a flight of stairs will be no problem, and you’ll notice the walk to the car with groceries is easier. Grandchildren will feel lighter. Posture will improve.
Your doctor may also notice other improvements. Our clients generally see improved blood work, and weight loss is common. Osteoporosis can also be prevented through regular strength training, and risks of heart disease and other ailments can be reduced through fitness.
But don’t take our word for it. Ask our current clients. They will tell you exactly why they train with us, and their words should carry more weight than ours. We base our reputation on the satisfaction of our clients.
We look forward to seeing you in the gym!
