Q - DO I NEED TO BE FIT TO START TRAINING?
A - No. Absolutely not. The only thing you need to start training here is a good attitude. Our training methodology is designed to allow anyone to adapt a workout to their own movement abilities or work capacity.
In other words, anyone can sign up to train at our gym, as long as they are willing to listen to the coaches and willing to learn.
Q - IS HIGH INTENSITY TRAINING DANGEROUS?
A - Walking down the stairs, or using a ladder the wrong way can be dangerous. Gyms are no different but when done properly, our program is more likely to make you injury resistant than to induce injuries. One way to make sure our members don't get injured is to ensure they execute the movements with proper form. Therefore, our coaches take a lot of time and effort to make sure members move safely.
Q - CAN I JUST TRY IT FOR ONE SESSION?
A - Individuals who are new to training will go through an introduction program in order to learn the proper form of the fundamental movements involved in training. These introduction sessions are designed with a similar format to regular classes. There's nothing to lose in these sessions, only experience to gain.
Q - I HAVE A CHRONIC INJURY, CAN I TRAIN HERE?
A - Yes! By going through the BASiCS program, you will have a chance to explore the movements that are impacted by your injury and with the help of our coaching, you will be able to work through or around it. Reinforcing joints and improving mobility and stability can do wonders for injuries you might think
will never go away.
Q - HOW IS BURNABY ATHLETICS DIFFERENT FROM OTHER LOCAL GYMS?
#1 - Burnaby Athletics has an incredible group dynamic and that changes everything. One of the biggest differences you'll notice is that everyone here is working together.
#2 - Our workouts are always different. Your coaches have taken care of programming the workouts so you will rarely do the exact same workouts week in and week out. The variation helps you to stay motivated and stick with it through thick and thin.
#3 - Most workouts are typically shorter than 20 minutes. Averaging at 10-15 minutes, workouts tend to be short but effective. Intensity is added as it is required per the individual. Classes are an hour long and typically include a warm up, strength or skill work, and a workout of the day(these vary in intensity day to day).
