Meet Darla. Roller Derby athlete, mom, and strong as hell. Darla has always been a dedicated AO athlete since the beginning, working with Pat on strength, speed, and agility. After an injury forced her into surgery, rehab, and a long recovery, she’s finally building back the courage and stability to get back into the sport… Read all about her story and experience with coach Pat! It’s a good one :)
In the world of personal training us coaches get to work with some amazing people. We get to educate, challenge, and recreate self-confidence in our trusting clients. When looking over the past year, we decided to share with you one particular client’s experience while training at AO. If you’ve ever questioned your courage to hop into a class, reach out to a trainer, or just email for info- then you’ll definitely be able to relate. At the same time, if you’ve ever hit some serious goals after working your ass off or realize there’s just more to this fitness world than you once thought, then again, you’ll relate to this client’s experience. Take some time to read about AO’s super client Dana. Her experience at the gym is unique and motivating and her drive is unstoppable. This isn’t just a transformation story, it’s a mental and emotional growth so big, it’s contagious. Click on View Post above to read more!
Small Group Training (SGT) is offered at Athletic Outcomes as 6 week programs for those looking to grab a little more attention from their coaches and ultimately improve on a skill. In this round of SGT, Coach Colin led a Pure Strength focused group of 4 where they met 2X a week going over proper lifting techniques as well as how to warm-up to prep you for these lifts!
- 1RM Back squat increased 30lbs, or 17.4%
- 1RM Barbell OH Press increased 12.1%
- Max Bodyweight hang time increased 28 seconds
- Max Reps Pullups DOUBLED (for everyone)
- Deadlift 3RM increased by 50lbs or 24.1%
- Max Rep push ups increase by 8 reps (we never trained a horizontal press once
- 250 M Rower Sprint time dropped by 3 seconds
Colin mentioned that he was “thrilled with their results and appreciate all the hard work they put in” and we couldn’t agree more! Those numbers don’t lie and we’re incredible impressed with the dedication and hard work on both ends. Great job team!
We hold SGT sessions featuring different forms of training such as athletic conditioning, maximal strength, running-specific, for beginners, etc. and are always open to hearing more about the types of goals you all have and how we can achieve those through SGT!
