“We believe it’s important for our athletes to have a strong support system who will help encourage you to reach your goals.” – Paul Collins, Peak Condition Founder
Yes. Peak Condition is not a membership based gym. You will always be working with one of our strength and conditioning coaches when you are in the facility, and we promise keep the client to coach ratio at or below 5:1 at all times. Those slots can fill up fast, so it is important to schedule in advance.
To keep a focused training environment at all times, we do not offer memberships that allow you to drop in at any time. Instead, we offer scheduled training times that ensure you get the attention you deserve when you are in the facility, and a training environment that ignites results. We wish we could train everybody at any time, but we will not compromise the quality of your training to do it.
Each training session will be slightly different from athlete to athlete and from day to day depending on personal goals, training experience, injury history and mobility/stability (information covered in the assessment). However, each of your sessions will start off with a personalized Tissue Quality program and Dynamic Warm-Up. Those are quickly followed by Skill Drills, where selected movement patterns are practiced to improve future training sessions. The bulk of your time will be devoted to Strength and Condition, which is highly variable and based on information from the initial assessment and your continued training progress.
Yes. As long as you let us know what sort of equipment you have access to outside of our facility, we can prepare material to be completed at a gym closer to home. We are unable to email programs to you prior to walking you through the new training material in-person at Peak Condition.
While your sessions are designed to be completed in roughly an hour, we encourage you to budget 75-minutes to complete your training. If you have requested training materials to be completed outside of our facility, your first session on a new program will require 90-100 minutes to complete your training for that day and thoroughly walk through additional content.
