Barbell Strength

Absolute, Positive Power

With a strong emphasis on proper form, this foundational class will teach you the basic movements of weight training, providing options to keep things challenging as you build strength.

What to Expect

You’ll move through squats, lunges, chest and overhead presses, as well as tricep dips and bicep, hammer and side arm curls. The intensity of Barbell Strength depends on how much weight you add to the bar. Start easy — you can always increase the weight later.

Why it Works

An important complement to cardio, strength training boosts metabolism, increases bone density and builds lean muscles that fuel fat loss. Barbell Strength will teach you to use free weights, which are especially effective tools for engaging your whole body, improving balance and coordination and increasing functional strength.
