Strength class returns August 25th & Scholastic Program Update

On Monday August 25th, Athletic Lab will be restarting our hugely successful Strength program. On average, members who participated in the Athletic Lab Strength program improve their maxes in the squat, press, front squat and deadlift by over 10% in just 7 weeks and gave the program rave reviews.

The Athletic Lab Strength program is a specialized 8 week training block with periodized progressions designed to enhance basic barbell strength. Barbell strength is foundational to performance in many strength sports like Olympic Weightlifting and CrossFit. In fact, many CrossFitters will find that they are able to significantly improve their CrossFit performances JUST by getting stronger. The program will take place during our 7am and 7pm Monday, Wednesday, and Friday classes.

The class will occur DURING our normally scheduled CrossFit classes at those time slots. As a result, our Performance Fitness members who attend during those time slots will do the Strength workout of the day rather than the workout seen in our other daily time slots. Those who sign up specifically for the Strength block will be required to pre and post test, will receive a plan with customized prescribed weights for each session, and will be expected to attend ONLY Strength sessions. If you meet these requirements please speak to an Athletic Lab staff member about switching their membership to the lower priced Strength Membership options.  Once completed, you may return to your prior Performance Fitness membership. If you’d like to continue to have access to all of our Performance Fitness classes you can keep your existing membership exactly as it is. The Strength program will start on 8.25.14.

STRENGTH PROGRAM DETAILS

Schedule: Mon, Wed, Fri. Meeting at 7am and 7pm. Each class will be approximately 1 hour.
Duration: 8 weeks
Expectation: We would like […]

Athletic Lab athletes dominate pre-season testing

This past week, a few of our collegiate athletes made their way back to school for their pre-season. Haley Patsey and Kelsey Reeves, two athletes that completed our University Soccer Prep 8-week program, passed all of their fitness tests for the East Carolina University women’s soccer team. Haley and Kelsey were two of only three women to pass all of their pre-season tests. Kelsey placed first on the team in pre-season testing scores and Haley finished 3rd among the team. They put in a ton of effort over the summer to prepare themselves for their upcoming season. See the ECU pre-season leaderboard below. Well done ladies. Best of luck as you begin your season.

My Internship Experience by John Evans

[John Evans is a Exercise Science major at Slippery Rock University in Pennsylvania and is an Athletic Development Intern at Athletic Lab]

When it comes to strength and conditioning, there is little that says more about a coach than the experiences that that coach has had. That’s why I felt it would be good to elaborate on MY experience as an intern at Athletic Lab.

Prior to coming to Athletic Lab, I was terrified, anxious, nervous and excited (talk about a mix of emotions). I was about to drive 600 miles, spend all of my money, and leave all of the comfortability I had in Pennsylvania. Since I was in 9th grade, I had dreamed about having the opportunity to meet some of the coaches that I had been following on websites like EliteTrack.

Some people may not realize it, but the coaching you receive at Athletic Lab is amazing. Point blank. I would not have driven all the way to North Carolina to spend an entire summer around complete strangers, if I didn’t completely believe in what they are doing. If you don’t believe me, do some research on your coaches. I don’t understand how there isn’t a line of athletes waiting out the door, and around the sidewalk.

When I walked in the first day, I was star struck. I was standing in the facility that I had watched grow since it’s infancy. I walked into Mike’s office for the first time, and stood silently waiting to introduce myself.

Since then, I have developed so much as a coach, and person. Regardless of how much cleaning I do, or the number of times I was made fun of, I have loved every second spent at Athletic Lab. […]
