Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is Group Strength?
The Group Strength Experience:
Many people struggle through the same mundane, “globo gym” workouts day-in and day-out with little to no progress. Our Group Strength workouts are a strength and conditioning program that has been proven to produce elite fitness in its participants, no matter what their age or gender. We incorporate general strength training principles, powerlifting, and olympic weightlifting into our programming.  This is done by progressing loading of our main lifts with constantly varying the accessory exercises performed, equipment used, and the length of the workouts. Because of this variance, our  workouts are never boring and always challenging.
  • What is Pilates?
Pilates, originally called “Contrology,” was created by Joseph Pilates during the early 20th century.  He grew up studying gymnastics, boxing, among other sports.  He later worked with injured soldiers during WWI where he rehabilitated them through strengthening, stretching, and stabilizing exercises.  Joseph later moved to the United States to continue his work with dancers in New York.  Over time his form of exercise took on his name.  His form of exercise has found its way into the lives of not only athletes but also in the rehabilitation world.  The benefits of Pilates include flexibility, mobility, and strength.  Every body can benefit from Pilates.
  • What is our Saturday Circuit like?
Strongman style is a circuit using all different types of equipment where we learn to apply our lifting mechanics to other object such as tires, sledgehammers, or sandbags.  We also incorporate kettlebells, medicine balls, dumbbells, bodyweight exercises, prowler, and yoke. Whether your goal is to get in better shape or work up to more intensity you take this workout as you can handle by varying up the loads you lift.
 
  • What will happen every day you train at Big Blue Strength?
When you come to a Big Blue Strength training session, you will train like college athletes do – as a team! We will warm-up as a team, then we will go through the Workout of the Day as a team. You will NOT be permitted to train on your own using your own fitness program. You will be trained and coached under strict supervision to ensure you are performing all exercises and movements properly and safely.
When you come to a Big Blue Pilates group training session, you will work together as a group going through a carefully programmed Pilates session.  Each workout will work all movements of the spine through safe and effective exercises.  Modifications will be made for any individuals’ needs.  You will feel like a million bucks when you finish.
 
  • Do I have to do an orientation before I start?
All of our new members must complete the required # of orientation workouts before joining the normal training group. During these workouts, you will be taught how to properly perform the most common movements in CrossFit, FitCamp, or Pilates. While learning, proper technique will be the main focus of these sessions, you will also be exposed to CrossFit’s training philosophy and methods and/ or Pilates principles and warm ups.

 

  • What if I can't do a movement or exercise?
At Big Blue, we are accustomed to scaling / modifying workouts to fit each individual’s fitness abilities and backgrounds. It is our goal to provide each participant with a safe, yet progressive workout that allows them to achieve their best every time they train with us.  With our smaller group class sizes, we have the opportunity to coach the group as individuals.
