The first step before you make a commitment that you feel unsure about is to sit down with Bryce for a free consultation! We want to find out exactly what you are looking for so we can point you in the right direction! Everyone has different fitness goals which is why we offer more individualized programs.We want you to feel comfortable with your decision to commit to fitness training before feeling like you jumped into something you’re not physically ready for.
Who Trains Here?
Everyone here has the same underlying goals; to be fit and maintain a healthy lifestyle. The only difference is the starting point and what you’d like to accomplish. Each person has different, specific goals. These specific goals CANNOT be met with a generalist approach like most CrossFit gyms in the area, which is why we have the options we do!
You will like Fulcrum Athletics if you…
-Don’t know how to train yourself and are bored with your current regimen
-Are looking for a guaranteed method to get stronger and in better shape
-Are no longer seeing results with your current regimen
-Don’t want to follow the gimmicky “Do CrossFit and Eat Paleo” prescription
-Don’t want to run on treadmills, hamster wheels and ellipticals
-Want to be part of a community of like-minded people
Our group training plans are designed around an individually assessed level of strength and fitness. You DO NOT need to be in shape before starting our program, that is our job!
How Does It Work?
We have a few different groups for which we program, which will allow you to start off on the right foot.
Athlete Development– Designed for movement correction, or for people just starting out with movement/ mobility issues and strength imbalances. Many times the strength will overlap with the strength portion in the Fitness Group, however, more times than not, the focus is more on the necessary unilateral movements to correct mechanics and strength imbalances.
Fitness- This group makes up the majority of our membership. Most people in this group just want to be healthy, strong and fit. They desire a better body composition, and a higher level of general strength and conditioning. Most do not have any desire to compete in any sport of fitness including CrossFit, Strongman, Powerlifting, Weightlifting, etc. Ideally though, this group would provide training with the proper foundational movements in order to prepare to train properly for those sports with a little more specification. This group includes everyone from the stay-at-home mom to marathoners, and previous Division 1-Division 3 prior collegiate athletes!
Sport- The programming in the Sport group is reflective of training specifically for CrossFit competition. This program is adapted from James “OPT” Fitzgerald and we have specific standards which need to be met before clients are able to follow this program in order to reduce the risk of injury.
Weightlifting- We are the only USA Weightlifting sanctioned club in the area. We offer Olympic weightlifting classes, four per week for 90 minute sessions. The weightlifting is programmed in eight-week blocks or cycles and is open only to registrants (members and non-members). People of any athletic ability and fitness level may opt to take these classes as they are programmed individually for each client. Following an initial assessment, each participant will receive their OWN program based off of their current, assessed skill and fitness level. Their individual program will focus on what is most important to them in order to be able to lift properly and safely as it refers to the Olympic lifts. The weightlifting program that is published on this site is just a basic template that a few of the full-time weightlifters follow.
Assessment: After your initial consultation, the next step is to go through the assessment. From this, we will have an idea of your goals and a clear evaluation of your movement patterns and abilities so that we can properly train you. From this point on, you will be a member of the Fulcrum Athletics community on the path to a healthier, stronger and more fit lifestyle!
