WHAT MAKES YOUR PROGRAM DIFFERENT?
A few things make us different. One is that you will progress, not just jump into training. You will not perform an exercise until you are able to do it with proper form, you will graduate to performing certain exercises with either heavy weight or for speed. We also tailor the training week to fit your lifestyle no matter how many days you train or the program you pick. Another is constant improvement. Our programming today is much different then 12 months ago, and will be different again 12 months from now. We didn't invent this stuff. We learn about programming, program design, and exercise selection from the giants in the field: Mike Boyle, Mark Verstegen, Dan John, Pavel Tsatsouline, Mark Twight, Alwyn Cosgrove, Grey Cook, Mel Siff, Kelly Starrett, Rob Shaul, JC Santana, Greg Everett, Greg Glassman, and many more who help us grow and improve through their knowledge, insight, and innovation. Changes will be made to improve, we can always do better.
HOW DOES EDGE CAMP DIFFER FROM CROSSFIT?
EDGE CAMP has been influenced by CrossFit (Glassman, mentioned above) and many others (mentioned above), we are not CrossFit. Not every training session or circuit is a race. Strength training is never a race, doing so only leads to injuries, there is a time and place to do something "for time" or at "sprint effort". These efforts will be regulated to parts of the training session when appropriate and safe. We use periodization, typical CrossFit, to our knowledge, does not use periodization or training cycles of any type. There are no random training in our programming, even though it may appear so.
I HAVEN'T WORKED OUT IN A REALLY LONG TIME. WILL EDGE CAMP BE TOO HARD FOR ME?
No! Our training program begins with the IET (Initial Entry Training) Program. After completing the program and you choose to join small group training the training will be tailored to your skill level/abilities. Every training session can be scaled or modified to any fitness level. You do not need to get into shape before starting EDGE CAMP. That's what we are here for.
HOW SHOULD I DRESS FOR A TRAINING SESSION?
Wear clothing that you can move in, athletic wear is best, athletic/training shoes, and remove all jewelry.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING TO A TRAINING SESSION?
All you really need is a towel and water. For some of the classes you will eventually need to purchase equipment.
WHY DO YOU USE VIDEO ANALYSIS?
We use video to show your progress and to give you a visual of both good and poor technique.
CAN I DROP IN TO ANY CLASS?
Due to the integrity of our program we don't allow random drop ins. If you are interested in coming out and checking out a session please contact us.
WHAT ABOUT NUTRITION/DIET?
Here's our guideline: Six days a week eat lean meats, veggies, fruits, nuts, seeds, and drink plenty of water, don't drink calories. Avoid eating bread, spuds, rice, pasta, or sugar. One day a week CHEAT!! Pizza, liquor/cocktails, ice cream - you name it! We've found that you can't eat clean over the long haul without cheating. Also, the longer you stick to this diet, the less you'll "cheat" on your cheat day, and the more cheating will hurt you - i.e. stomach ache, gas, etc.
