Durability


​​Class Description: 

By crawling, rolling, lunging, squatting, piking, pressing and pulling from the floor you learn to restore lost ranges of motion, to move your body more freely and with greater control. You learn to move with the resilience of a child again. 

Over the course of the series you will learn to build movements progressively, with repetition and breath awareness, re-mapping your brain for improved movement quality, and regressing effectively so that you can push hard without injury. Using conventional strength drills and unbinding flows, set to timed protocols, you teach your nervous system to hold technique under stress, recover quickly from difficulties and failures, and increase durability, resilience and toughness. 

Prerequisites

  • No pre-existing pain patterns; ability to crawl around the floor / be on hands and knees for extended periods of time; willingness to think outside the box; commitment to learning good technique, being pushed outside your comfort zone and maintaining a good attitude

Testimonials from Prime Students


Despite having strength trained for a number of years and having received instruction in proper form and technique, I gained valuable insight into properly preparing the body for a strength and conditioning session.

The small group size lent itself well to individual attention from the trainers and for circuit type training so that the whole hour was efficiently and effectively used.
Small Group Training taught me how to work out more effectively and how not to overtrain.  

Having had at least 4 fitness coaches over the last 18 years, I can say that the depth of knowledge and the level and precision of instruction from the trainers was unparalleled.
