Gunnar Regan instructs the following:
  • Building Body
  • Join Coach Gunnar for a new strength class! Designed to teach proper technique and develop greater overall strength in an hour long session. Exercises will be tailored to the individual with intention of creating midline stability as the foundation of strength and power.

  • CrossFit
  • Our Power House CrossFit classes are focused on movement quality, skill progressions, and FUN! CrossFit classes include a skill-based warm-up, skill or strength training, the Workout of the Day (or “WOD”), and mobility work. The workouts can always be scaled so that new athletes can workout alongside veteran athletes. On some days, the WOD will be a 10-20 minute metabolic conditioning workout that combines several movements or exercises that are grouped into sets and either completed for time or in as many rounds a possible (“AMRAP”). On other days, the class will focus on a strength piece (like a 1 rep max deadlift) followed by a shorter metabolic conditioning “finisher” workout. 

  • Skills and Drills
  • Looking to improve your CrossFit skills and lifting technique? Our Skill and Drills class is where we break down the complicated movements found in CrossFit classes and make them accessible to achieve. Progressions will be given from beginner to advanced levels, so everyone is encouraged to attend!
     
    Coached by Head Coach Ashley Stiles, she will review the P2 Standards we request all athlete to demonstrate in our classes, and help break down the movements to become achievable. She will offer the context about WHY we ask our members to reach certain milestones before taking on more complex movements in class, assuring safety and maximum results for each member.
     
    For the CrossFit development portion, all skills are fair game in this class- handstand pushups,  kipping pull-ups, muscle-up progressions, pistols, clean & jerk, snatch, etc.
     
    The format of this class will be warmup, movement prep & mobility, skill development (points of performance, lecture, and demonstrations included), extensive drill work, and cool down. Conditioning is not the focus, though be prepared to work to fatigue!
