FAQ’S

What does membership get me?

We offer two different memberships. A 30 minute and 45 minute option. Both require a credit card on file for an automatic payment every 30 days. You receive 4 sessions per month in a package at our “member” rate. Any additional sessions booked beyond those 4 are charged as single sessions at “member” rate. Members have the ability to book out in advance as much as they desire without being charged ahead of time. You will be charged upon completion of your session. Members also get a special rate for group classes and 20% off merchandise.

What is the difference between a 30 and a 45 min session?

30 min sessions are a comprehensive and efficient strength training session. 45 min sessions build upon the comprehensive and efficient strength training sessions by giving us a little bit more time to address specific needs and supplement some conditioning intervals.

How many times per week should I come to train?

As coaches we always follow evidence based research. The current research suggests strength training 3-4x/ week for optimal results. Clients who see the best results are consistently training at least 3x/ week.

Is there parking?

You will find ample “Pay to Park” metered parking directly outside on Erie St, as well as surrounding streets. For those of you looking to train in the AM, these spots are free prior to 9AM.

What should I bring?

Wear athletic clothing, bring a water bottle (optional as we have a filtered water fountain and water for sale in our cooler) and athletic footwear. We recommend cross training shoes over running shoes.

What are your locker rooms like?

We have full-service locker rooms with showers, lockers (built-in code system – no lock needed!) fresh towels, salon supplied hair-care products, and your standard toiletries.

What should I eat and drink before sessions?

We suggest having even a small meal or snack before training. We DO NOT recommend pre-workout supplements or high doses of caffeine before training to reduce nausea and rapid heart rates. These sessions are usually a little quicker pace than working out on your own. We recommend training with us for a while before testing any pre-workout supplements.
