Who We Are
We are the Master Class. By textbook, we focus on functional fitness and related movements patterns that will translate directly into activities of daily living. To us, this means a lot of compound movements including barbell squats, deadlifts, presses, running, biking rowing, and a variety of body-weight movements like pull-ups, push-ups performed in as many different ways as you can think of. We put a large focus on glute strengthening, core work and midline stability, balance, mobility, postural correction and the “pre-habilitation” of common physical ailments seen in an older population. But let us take care of that. To you, this means getting healthy, staying in shape and making sure that you are able to live and thrive independently well into the later years of your life.
The Master Class is made up of a group of people aged 50 and over who want to take control of their life. It is a highly coached, functional fitness program that is designed and monitored by a certified fitness professional. It is a strong community that thrives off each other and holds each other accountable inside and outside of class. It is a united group of like-minded individuals who want to thrive, not just survive, well into the later years of their life. Those who partake in this program can expect to get stronger, breathe easier and live better, longer. It’s as simple as that
What to Expect
Each and every class you partake in is coached by a certified fitness professional. Your coach is there to help guide you through each and every minute of the class, and to motivate you to perform at your best – whatever that may be! The Master Class is open to ALL individuals over the age of 50! This means ANY and ALL fitness levels are welcome. If you are nervous or wondering if this class is for you, come try one out for free. Your coach will ensure that you are moving well and keeping up – there are no worries to be had! The basic breakdown of our classes is as follows:
This is a thorough warm-up that includes mobility, postural correction, and muscular activation. The warm-up is different every day and is highly applicable to the upcoming workout.
Each day we will review the movements in the upcoming workout and talk about how to do them safely and efficiently. Your coach will always make sure that you are working at an intensity and ability that is appropriate for you, and will make sure you are comfortable with what you are learning! Never leave a man behind!
WORKOUT OF THE DAY:
This can be anything! As stated above, we apply all basic movements modalities and turn them into classes that you can thrive in. Every workout is directly translatable to your health and wellness, and every workout is different. If you become a part of the Master Class, you will never repeat a workout. This is a promise.
Each class ends with a mobility-focused cool down to ensure you are moving well and maintaining your muscular and joint health. This is also lead by your coach and is always focused on the muscles that were used in the workout. #ALWAYSapplicable
