Curriculum:

The two-day seminar curriculum provides a basic understanding of our training philosophy and methods. If you are serious about athletic development the water is deep. This is an introductory course so we call it the shallow end of the pool. This two-day seminar is a prerequisite to continuing education and training. The seminar attendee will be tested at the end of the seminar on the material covered. Class size is limited to 15 individuals.

Duration:

This two-day seminar is scheduled for 8 hours each day, with time split between the classroom and the gym. However, previous seminars lasted roughly 10 hours each day. Be prepared. Every participant has left the seminar wanting more, and having had enough.

Location:

Most of our seminars are held at our gym in Salt Lake City, Utah. We do teach seminars off-site though. Make sure you double check the location before finalizing purchase. For a complete listing of locations see below.

TODAY IN THE GYM
This is the 51st installment of our "Sessions" series.

These "Sessions" videos are longer videos (i.e. 10-15 minutes) and feature detailed explanation and analysis of the workouts being done here. There is a story embedded in each video, you'll see people in our gym go through a workout experience, there will be times where someone gets coached through "the moment", and you'll see interviews with the participants. You'll see people succeed, you'll see people fail, and you will get a first hand view of what really happens in here on a day to day basis.

The goal of these videos is to teach you as much as possible so that you may greater utilize the tools we have available on the site and also so you may direct your own training in a more productive manner.
