Core Values Installment #6: Safety

Out on the bluff, we are typically the focus of many patrons attention.  Some have never  seen a female with a barbell over her head. Furthermore, some have never seen an intense effort of any sort. Most have no idea what they are looking at when they happen upon our beautiful “Nation.” What may seem like chaos to the untrained and unfamiliar eye, is actually a very safe, and very controlled environment for anyone, of any fitness level to learn in. Safety is on the forefront of our minds constantly.    It’s even one of our core values.

Safety first.

This is one of the reasons that the first thing we discuss is injuries and evaluate the health of the students in every class. We are here to grow your fitness, not to degrade it. Luckily, our program is universally scalable, which means the tasks for the day can be modified such that folks representing the entire spectrum of fitness can participate. The more you are involved with our program the more you’ll notice common threads and underlying themes in the movements we train. Believe me when we say we’ve got an entire stable of options for folks that we may need to accommodate, whether you’re a professional athlete, you’ve got one arm, or suffer from vertigo.
Regardless of what fantastical acrobatics we may be doing in class, be rest assured that not only are our movements excellent developers of fitness, they have evolved with efficacy and safety in mind. Coaches and athletes then are very much on the same page in our program, because luckily efficient movement is safe movement, as well.
It’s a win win. Safe gym. Effective gym. Fun gym.
