Athletic Lab is happy to announce we will be adding 2 new Senza Classes to our Performance Fitness schedule. Senza is our 45 minute twist on traditional bootcamp training. Senza is an Italian word that translates to 'without' which is fitting for the simplistic and non-threatening format of the class. Sessions focus on bodyweight, medicine ball and light kettlebell exercises without touching a barbell, doing complicated weightlifting exercises or training in the competitive atmosphere that many of our other Performance Fitness classes have. Senza classes will be added on Tuesday and Thursday at 5:15 am beginning February 21st. Open gym will also be available during this new time slot. Class: Senza & Open Gym Start Date: February 21 Days: Tuesdays & Thursdays Time: 5:15-6 am Accompanying our new Senza class times is the new option to purchase Senza only punchcard memberships. Senza punchcards can now be purchased in 10 ($94.95) and 20 ($169.95) use packages.
One of the things that makes Athletic Lab amazing is our members. We have members from all walks of life and all fitness and sport backgrounds. For the month of February we're highlighting two of our Elite Track & Field athletes as Members of the Month. Matt Hunter and Aaron Port are emerging elite decathletes who moved to Cary, NC to train at Athletic Lab with the goal of becoming professional Track & Field athletes. Aaron and Matt recently took 1st and 2nd place respectively at the Tobacco Road Multi-Event at the University of North Carolina. You can check out our previous members of the month here. Name: Matt Hunter Age: 23 What city were you born in? Cambridge, MA What's your favorite exercise? Least favorite? My favorite exercise is power cleans, my least favorite is dips. How did you first hear about Athletic Lab? I first heard about Athletic Lab through a former track and field coach of mine. What do you enjoy most about competing post-collegiately? I find that competing post-collegiately with the goal of finding out what my full potential is has allowed me to enjoy the sport again in a way that is similar to how I felt when I fell in love with the sport to begin with, and a large part of that is the community at Athletic Lab. What competition stands out the most to you and why? The meet that stands out the most to me would be during my senior year at Lexington High School when we beat our rival school to win the conference championship for the first time since I had been there! We had been working towards that goal for years, and to do it with many of my lifelong friends will allays stand out! [...]
