Difficulty refers to the level of skill
and technique called for in a class.
Beginner classes are designed for students who are new to
working out, recovering from a previous injury or who have low mobility and flexibility. These classes, series
and programs will be slower paced with less strict programming. If you are looking for a more gentle
introduction to Gymnastic Strength Training�, this is the perfect starting point.
Moderate classes are best for those who are comfortable
following workout programming. These classes, series and programs will focus on building basic strength and
mobility and laying the foundation for more advanced skill work.
Intermediate classes are best for students who have been
workout out regularly and have developed a baseline of both strength and mobility. These classes, series and
programs will be faster paced and help round out any remaining weaknesses you have.
Advanced classes are the most challenging of all the Gymnastic
Strength Training� curriculum. These classes, series and programs will build exceptional strength and mobility
and help you develop difficult skills.
Intensity is not the same as
difficulty; it refers to the amount of exertion that a workout requires.
The first level of intensity represents less sets and reps or
a slower paced workout. These will be more restorative in nature.
Classes, series and programs under this intensity will be more
moderately paced and will start to become more challenging.
This level of intensity will bring more volume and challenge
These classes will push your current limits and abilities.
