One of the things we hear the most here is “I would love to start but I need to get in shape first!” This is a misconception that often times will keep people from pursuing new health goals. So, in a word, no.
A person does not have to be in athletic shape simply because of the way we scale load and intensity, rather than programming. The person scaling weight on a barbell move should be at the same capacity as someone using prescribed weight. Both people should be going all out according to what they are capable of.
At the end of the day you are only in real competition with yourself. And with our high quality ‘On Ramp’ and ‘Mobility Class’, there is a place for everyone to start, bar none!
