Just like many medial drugs, the effect of training is dose dependent. You need to at least meet minimum thresholds of dosage to expect to realistically see results from the training. Frequent, regularly recurring doses are necessary to expect to see the results that you want. Regardless of whether you’re training for fitness, speed, strength or weight loss, your training is never done. It is a continual process that is just as much about the process as the destination. Just like taking a medication, the training has to become a regular part of your life, a habit, if you are realistically expecting to see long term sustainable results. If training stops, detraining can occur very quickly and you may lose what you have gained.
Starting tomorrow, we will be incorporating “Team workouts” in to our usual Performance Fitness programming every Tuesday. This will add a new competitive spin on to our Tuesday workouts, build community, and increase each person’s accountability to push themselves. Enjoy!
Most of our classes at Athletic Lab are small group classes. This format provides a host of benefits from peer pressure adherence to support in the middle of the workout. What many do not know is that we also offer private training sessions with each on of our trainers. While we find that our small-group training sessions are ideal for the majority of our clients, there are situations when private training sessions may be more beneficial. Here are a couple scenarios that are best suited for individual private sessions:
You’re rehabilitating from a recent injury or surgery
You’re significantly overweight
You have no exercise experience or have been very sedentary
You have serious health issues, physical issues or injuries
You want to learn specific skills or you have very specific goals and a rigid time frame to achieve them in
You’re a specialized athlete participating in a niche activity and are looking for highly specialized training
You need or prefer privacy, personal attention and accountability
Recently, some of our soccer players from Fayetteville were invited to the Olympic Development Program (ODP) region camp in Alabama. This is a great accomplishment for these athletes and we want to congratulate Matt Coon, Jeffrey Petroski, Spell Carr, Kyle Hebl, and Guy Molnar for their invite. Athletic Lab is proud to be the training center of some of the best soccer players both in the Triangle and also it’s surrounding areas. With soccer players from all of the major age-group leagues (CASL, TFC, Triangle United, and Fuqua Varina) we are quickly becoming known as THE place for soccer players to get faster, stronger and quicker. Add to that, the 2010 NASL Champion Carolina Railhawks have trained at Athletic Lab since we arrived in North Carolina. If you’re a soccer player and want to get stronger, faster and more fit there’s no better place than Athletic Lab.
Following their successful 2010 campaign, the Carolina Railhawks have been busy preparing for the 2011 season at Athletic Lab. The Carolina Railhawks have their choice of training centers and coaches and they chose Athletic Lab because of our unparalleled commitment to athletic development excellence. You can see some photos of the Railhawks training at Athletic Lab on our Facebook gallery. The Railhawks open their season on April 9th against the Puerto Rico Islanders at Wake Med Soccer Park in Cary, NC.
