Classes for Everyone
At IRONBOURNE FITNESS we train in the realm of functional fitness focusing specifically on foundational movements that are common in everyday life. Functional Fitness Training is a lifestyle characterized by safe, effective exercise and sound nutrition. It can be used to accomplish any goal, from improved health to weight loss to better performance. The program works for everyone; people who are just starting out to people who have trained for years - the only difference is load and intensity. A key element that makes this type of training so successful is that the workouts are different each day (constantly varied) to keep your body guessing. This ensures that the training is non sport specific and also not limited by a specific fitness machine's range of motion.
We offer a weekly schedule of classes for every fitness fan. Whether you want to dial up the intensity or take a more relaxed approach, work your legs or get in some cardio and core, we’ve got a class with a spot just for you. Create your own personalized schedule by choosing the classes that suit your needs.
Oly Skills - Olympic Lifting
Join us for Oly Skills and dial in Olympic Lifting techniques which will help to build a strong base. In these sessions we break down the movements into each core component, which allows our members to more easily learn the proper lifting techinique. The mobility and strength movements that are covered will aid in transitioning into the more advanced movements, including Snatch and Clean and Jerk.
UpLift - Cardio Blast
UpLift is a boot-camp style barbell-less class that is focused on high intensity metabolic and core conditioning. In addition to testing your cardio, this class will also test your mental toughness. UpLift is formatted in a way that will challenge each individual member, as the programming allows you to adjust the speed and intensity of each session based on the degree of difficulty in the movements and amount of weight chosen. UpLift includes all of the typical functional fitness movements, such as using whole-body, multi-joint exercises that simulate movements people do in everyday life. The only difference is, that there is no barbell element here. If you are looking for a legit 60 min sweat session, this one is for you.
FT60 - Functional Fitness Training
FT60 Functional Fitness Training is a 60 min class including a combination of strength training and metabolic conditioning. Functional Fitness methodology is based on real life functional movements such as squatting, lifting, pulling, and reaching. This class emphasizes increased mobility that prepares your body for daily tasks that you may do at work, at home or in sports.
Foundations Class is all about setting the foundation for getting back into a routine of working out. It is a great opportunity for those who are just starting a fitness program, or for those who may be training already, but not really seeing any results.
Our coaches lead you through everything from the warm-up, teaching proper body mechanics to promote a safe fitness environment, to building functional strength and some conditioning as well. It also covers recovery techniques that will help you to stay in the gym on a regular basis.
This class is also key to learning the core movements in functional fitness and also gives our members a chance to get a good feel for the programming at IB, in a less intimidating environment.
Foundations (Beginners) Classes
Developmental Athlete Program
Our Developmental Athlete program (Ages 12+) will be centered on educating young athletes in regards to fundamental movement patterns and establishing physical literacy and GPP (general physical preparedness). Developmental athletes need to learn how to get their bodies in certain positions, how to hold proper posture and how to move efficiently. Through this program they will learn to move their joints through a full range of motion. They will also be shown how to do soft tissue work (SMR), how to properly stretch and warm up and how to activate their muscles with activation exercises. Then we will teach them the fundamental movement patterns that are common in all sports and in lifting. They will learn how to squat, hinge, lunge, push, pull, sprint, jump and land.
Once the foundation is solid then we load these positions and start building strength in the young athletes. After they've proven that they can get in these positions, hold these postures and execute these movements under load, then we start having them do this quickly so we can develop power. Strength plus speed equals power, but it must be executed with proper technique, especially in the developmental athlete.
