Group Strength and Conditioning
Group Strength and Conditioning classes are the core program at PDXstrength. Athletes must demonstrate understanding and use of fundamental movements from PDX 101 prior to jumping into our GS&C classes. GS&C classes build effective form and techniques for functional movement. Participation in these classes develops endurance, flexibility, stamina, strength,speed,coordination, power, accuracy, balance, and agility. As athletes advance, they will be challenged to progress toward gymnastic, weightlifting, and functional movements that require more specialized skills. We use everything from kettle bells, barbells, tires, sleds, slam balls, medicine balls, dumbbells, body weight exercises, rings, ropes and outdoor obstacles when weather permits.View Schedule
