Our holistic approach to your health provides a safe, dynamic, and productive environment.
Simply put, old school barbell training works! It benefits overall health. At SBWC we focus on multi-joint, full-body movements that maximize your body’s potential to get strong, increase bone density, and move in a productive and functional manner. The additional testing and training allow us to monitor and develop members to maximize their benefits.
Finally, we handle programming and provide constant coaching. Members don’t have to do any guesswork. They always have guidance and simply need to dedicate the time and put in the work.
Absolutely not! SBWC offers a fun and inclusive zen-like training environment. Classes and training sessions are always monitored by an experienced coach. Lifters train in a supportive, team-like atmosphere where everyone shares the same goal. People go to SBWC to get stronger physically and mentally. In a sense, your strength when you start at SBWC is irrelevant as you will very quickly improve your skill and your strength. All you have to do is show up and we’ll put you on the correct path!
Our training sessions are supervised training groups with a current cap of 8 lifters. Each lifter will be following a program that has been written by one of our coaches while interacting with the other members of SBWC. Often there are several lifters who are following the same regime, although their weight loads may be different. A qualified coach runs the session and gives cues, calls for spots, and guides each person through the workout. They will make sure that everyone takes the right amount of rest, lifts safely, and pushes themselves to the best of their ability. It is an inclusive and inspiring environment.
We liken SBWC to a dojo (a hall or a space for immersive learning…). We want everyone to enjoy and respect their training. In order to get the most out of a training session, a lifter must expect honest feedback, be prepared to stay focused on lifting, and to be present! Forget all the other worries of your day, put away your cell phone, and train in the moment!
Communication, focus, and accuracy are the keys to a positive experience at SBWC. Mirrors have a way of creating false feedback and can cause a lifter to spot themselves incorrectly. Furthermore, you always have a coach at SBWC. It is important to absorb the information that they are relaying to you. Coaches can see better than an individual looking at their reflection in a mirror.
As for the music, we need to be able to talk with each other, to give cues, and to interact both coach-to-lifter and lifter-to-lifter. Ambient music – and, yes, personal music – don’t allow for this to happen. Besides, a room full of people can never all be happy with the choice of music. Finally, we encourage you to use the energy in the gym and internal dialogue to motivate yourself.
