In order to get where you want to go, you have to know where you are starting from.
How do I actually modify workouts?
I have an injury / a bad shoulder / a bad knee...what can I do to
still get in a good workout?
I want to get my first pull up (or insert other skill),
how do I even start or get there?
We are proud to use and adapt the Level Method system to help members and athletes of all ages and abilities scale to their levels. Using the MAP chart we have in class, we assess your fitness capabilities across 15 different categories, as well as energy systems and strength capacity. You are given a level on each type of assessment, and you use those specific levels to coordinate with and modify each daily workout.
EXAMPLE 1: Let's say you are working around a hurt shoulder.
Goal: Modify around what your shoulders can/can't do but still get
an amazing workout in.
On some of the upper body assessments, we may put you at a lower level (but you may have higher levels for other areas like running, squatting or kettlebell). On the days that we use upper body work, you will use the earlier levels to modify. On days that there is minimal or no shoulder work, you can scale to higher levels.
EXAMPLE 2: You are a phenomenal mountain biker or endurance athlete, but need work on your gymnastic and barbell strength.
Goal: Keep up that cardio but also build strength, upper body pull and core work to make you more well-rounded or support your endurance work.
With the level assessments, you will most likely score higher on our aerobic focused categories, and a bit lower on our gymnastic and barbell categories. You then use the column progressions for each category to give you mini goals to build up your strength and capacity to do more. Lower levels will do higher reps of weights to build foundational strength and work on form and technique.
