School of Strength
By Appointment Only. Monday to Friday 6am-7pm.
The School of Strength was created in 2013 to fill a void in the current landscape of strength training in the Bega Valley and surrounds. When you walk into most gymnasiums, you are met with a wall to wall experience of machines, both pin loaded and cardio equipment, with little or no instruction in how to use it, unless you paid for a personal training visit. At the School we focus on the big rocks of movement. We hip hinge. We squat. We push, and we pull. We test and re test. After all, why go to the gym, if you are unsure if you are getting stronger and faster?
The goal at the School is to get people to move more and feel better. How I hear you ask? We focus on the individual. We focus on the goals on the person, not the group. We coach and provide guidance and support. Most of all we discuss. In our group training sessions we discuss movement strategies around injuries. We discuss strategies to get better sleep. We discuss nutritional requirements.
In our one-on-one individualised strength and mobility sessions we discuss personal items like life, family, holidays, goals, what is annoying you the most, and outcomes to deal with these better, and the most important factor, your why. Without your why, there are no goal settings. There are no strength gains. There are no performance outcomes
At the School we cater to athletes of all ages. From juniors, to the masters athletes. However, while our focus is on athletes, we also cater to mums and dads. Granddads and grandmums. We all deserve to be able to use our strength in every day life. Whether that be to carry the kids all day, or to take every bag of shopping inside in only one trip.
The School is not a walk in gym. We have found that this way is not in our best interests for overall health and wellbeing, so we structure our settings around you. We find a time and day that best suits you, and we put that time in both calendars and we stick to it. Think of it like a doctors and dentists appointment. This is how your health should be treated. Yes, we can change the days and times from time to time, but once you are locked into a time and date, it's all systems go.
The School is also an NDIS Provider for anyone with special needs, and currently has 5 students who are NDIS qualified. We can tailor the sessions to suit the individuals needs and challenges.
Private one-on-one sessions are available as well as small group sessions, nutrition advice and online coaching.
