your 1st strive
Be sure to have water before, during, and after your session.
Fuel up before coming. Be sure to eat a little something before you exercise. We recommend eating a light snack 30 minutes before you Strive so that you will have the energy for a full 60 minutes.
What to wear
If you’ve never been to Strive, we suggest sporting a tee or tank on top and athletic shorts on the bottom. Highly recommend Athletic Training shoes or running shoes.
Arrive Early Nothing’s worse than missing the chalk talk ! Do yourself a favour and come to the Athletic House 10-15 minutes before class starts. Be sure to let the front desk know you’re new.
If you are not on time for class, you will not be guaranteed entry. 1. We take our warm up very seriously and 2. Although, we do not encourage dropping in for class before registering, we do have the odd one. If you are not on time, someone on time may replace your spot on the roster.
Front Desk Waiver New to Strive? We need your info. A waiver should be completed paperless through front desk when creating your profile online. If it is not, a waiver can be signed at the Athletic house before your first class.
Your stuff is safe at Strive! We have lockers for use (bring your own lock).
At Strive we begin every class with an overview on the big white board so that you can be briefed for all things in store for your 60 minute sweat. Considering it your pre game prep so that there will be no surprises and you can be ready to move, sweat and Strive!
Strive is a full body athletic inspired worked out, you will be moving on all planes, changing direction, finding full range and working on mobility. That said, you may want to chat with your doctor before your first Strive class. Also, if you’re new to us, have an injury, coming off an injury or if there is anything that you feel we should know, please don’t hesitate to talk to a coach before you begin.
Our team environment will inspire you to push yourself, but please listen to your body, we encourage everyone to go at their own pace, choose the weight you feel comfortable using and choose movement quality over quantity at all times.
