The training arm of SixTwoThree Strength & Conditioning has been created out of a need… Out of the grumblings I’ve heard in the community over the past few years about the growing number of coaches who think that reading the workout off the whiteboard and starting a clock is considered coaching.
With over 10,000 CrossFit affiliates, hundreds of Iron Tribe Fitness gyms, and countless other small and large facilities popping up all over the country the need for high quality coaching has never been greater.
Unfortunately, with this tremendous growth the ability to staff these gyms with high quality coaches has lagged behind.
I have the privilege to see many different gyms (especially in the CrossFit community) due to my role with CrossFit Endurance. I’ve talked with thousands of people over the past few years and there has been a few common themes.
- Every single one of them is getting fitter – Showing up to the gym consistently and performing a wide range of function movement will get you in pretty good shape.
- Many of these kick ass athletes are hitting plateaus or getting injured – Functional movements are inherently safe. However, performing functional movements, under load (Intensity) without proper mechanics is a recipe for disaster. You’ll be fine… Until you aren’t.
This is an awesome trend and we, as a species, will be better for it.
These people are lacking a comprehensive movement education.
We’ve all seen the big guy in the gym who can power snatch 225, it may be ugly, but he got it up there didn’t he?
Then we stood by with jaws dropped at the little guy who performed the same feat.
What separates these two individuals?
Their ability to perform the movement with a high level of skill.
Who it the better athlete? Who is fitter? Who is tapping into their potential? Who is less likely to get injured?
Poor movement in the gym is never acceptable. It is dangerous.
As a strength & conditioning professional it is my responsibility to ensue that every athlete I work with is getting a high quality movement education so they can safely and effectively perform the movements and workouts prescribed.
Your shitty range of motion is unacceptable to me and should be unacceptable to you.
Strength and conditioning coaches are leaders, not cheerleaders…
Inspiring proper movement, efficient technique, and ensuring you are able to tap into your potential as a human being and reach your goals.
That is what this garage gym is all about.
Crushing coaching mediocracy and developing better Americans.
