Group Strength and Conditioning
Group Strength and Conditioning classes build effective form and techniques for functional movement. Participation in these classes develops endurance, flexibility, stamina, strength,speed,coordination, power, accuracy, balance, and agility. As athletes advance, they will be challenged to progress toward gymnastic, weightlifting, and functional movements that require more specialized skills. We use everything from kettle bells, barbells, tires, sleds, slam balls, medicine balls, dumbbells, body weight exercises, rings, ropes and outdoor obstacles when weather permits. All of our PDXstrength athletes must demonstrate understanding and use of fundamental movements from PDX 101 prior to jumping into our Group Strength & Conditioning classes. Our workouts are posted here.
Bootcamps (all levels)
Think of Bootcamp, as adult recess! You will be smiling and laughing from all the fun you have sweating with our amazing coaches! Bootcamps are offered for athletes that may shy away from technical barbell and high skilled gymnastics work. Bootcamps are for athletes that crave a workout that they can feel comfortable and work safely at a moderate pace! We put emphasis on mastering the squat, lunge, push, press, pull and lots of creative body weight exercise, while giving your that sweaty workout you crave. While these classes move at a quick pace, they’re highly scaleable and appropriate for almost all levels. Beginners will learn how to safely train with proper form and technique, while advanced athletes can use this class as a lighter workout. We use everything from kettle bells, barbells, tires, sleds, slam balls, medicine balls, dumbbells, body weight exercises, rings, ropes and outdoor obstacles when weather permits. Bootcamp athletes are not required to graduate from our 101 course.
Lab Hour- Open Gym
Have a specific workout in mind that you’re just DYING to try? Open Gym is your chance to do that. Lab hour is a time set aside for you to develop skills or get in a little extra strength work. This is not a structured class, but an instructor or volunteer will be available for input , ideas and any questions you may have. Lab Hours are for members of PDXstrength and nonmembers are welcome too, please sign up online so that an instructor will be available to keep the space open for you.
Kettlebell Club (all levels)
If you’re looking for a fun workout that incorporates strength training, conditioning, and aerobic endurance all in one, take a Kettlebell Club class. Our Kettlebell Club class consists of a full body warm-up, and progresses into teaching the foundation kettlebell lifts (swing, squat, clean, snatch, deadlift, press, various weighted carries and the Turkish Get Up) along with bodyweight movements such as pushups, planks, and pull-ups. Proficiency in these foundation lifts will ensure your success in increasing your strength and improving overall work capacity. Classes also include a conditioning segment guaranteed to get your heart rate up while building a solid foundation in form and technique. This class is held both outdoors and indoors depending on the season and weather. Almost any level can take this class, The intensity of the class can be modified by using different sizes of kettlebells and scaling according to fitness level. For this reason most beginners and those with experience can participate in the same class. Kettle bell Club athletes are not required to graduate from our 101 course.
