Answer: We do! Check out our pricing link under details.
Question: What if I sign up with a friend, can we stay in the same phase of training?
Answer: We understand how important accountability is from peers and friends in a class, however to make sure your training is specific to your needs you may be in different phases of training (Mechanic, Dynamic, Power). Something we will pride ourselves on at the academy is having open arms to ALL members and our hope is for our athletes to do the same. At the end of the day, you will have friends and camaraderie with members in all different phases.
Question: Is it possible to stay in the Dynamic phase, if I am not interested in more complex lifts of Power?
Answer: Of course! That is what is great about the phases, this can help us tailor your training to your specific needs. But that doesn’t mean we will stop pushing and challenging you!
Question: How long do I have to stay in a phase before moving up to the next one?
Answer: Our programming is built around 12 weeks. However, this will ultimately be left up to the discretion of a coach.
Question: So I won’t have 1 coach but 3?
Answer: That’s correct. We want you to have the benefit of small group training but also that of 1:1 personal training, so to do this we will not have just 1 coach for a big class but instead your class will be broken into the 3 different phases and 1 coach will lead each phase. The coaches will rotate throughout the week depending on what is being instructed that day.
Question: How do you decide which phase I am in?
Answer: We have specific skills and testing for you to complete. Each item is given a number range and depending how you perform that is your score. At the end of testing each result is added up and this will help us determine the best phase for you and your specific training needs.
Question: Can I trial the program for free, before signing up?
Answer: Absolutely! We offer a 1 week trial period.
Question: What will Saturday training be like?
Answer: Be ready for a lot of fun on Saturday’s. We will have the whole academy together, so workouts will be geared towards some fun, friendly competition.
Question: Do I have to use the zen planner app?
Answer: Once you are a member we ask you to download the zen planner app to your phone. The reason for this is you are able to update your payment information and also it lets you know when your bill is due etc. You do not have to download it, however it solely is for your benefit. As it gets going you will be able to reserve your spot in class, track workouts, comment on a friend’s results and more.
