Training

Our only requirement for new clients is that you bring enough passion and motivation to see your goals become reality.

We offer 3 different basic training programs and tailor them to suit you and your specific goals.

Strength and Conditioning Programs:

Novice

Here are some of the concerns that Novice members often have:

  • Are you uncomfortable in a gym setting?
  • Are you intimidated by free weights?
  • Do you know what equipment to use in the gym and how?
  • Are you interested in learning how to use the barbell movements, such as the benchpress, squat, deadlift, overhead press and power clean?
  • Have you been doing the same workout routine and are ready to take it to the next level?
  • Is there a sport/activity you would like to train for?
  • Do you have questions about what foods you should and shouldn’t be eating?
  • Do you have injuries or chronic pains that are holding you back from your goals?
  • Do you have physical limitations you would like to overcome?
  • Have you established appropriate specific goals and a time line to accomplish them?

Built By Rowan Training Systems offers the answers to all of these questions. We provide you with a private gym in which you work one on one with a professional trainer. We will design a program that addresses your particular needs and limitations to get you started. We will teach you what equipment to use and how to use it safely and effectively. We will provide you with nutritional advice to help you achieve your goals. We will map out a plan that is designed just for you, to get you started. And we will establish clear and achievable goals along the way.

Intermediate

Intermediate clients have generally already committed to a regular fitness regime. Their questions generally include some of the following:

  • Have you already committed to a regular exercise regime?
  • Are the magazine diets, rapid weight loss/muscle gain programs not working for you?
  • Has your strength (bench press/squat/deadlift/overhead press/power clean) stalled?
  • Do you already do these movements but need coaching to improve your technique?
  • Do you have any asymmetries/weaknesses in your body that you’d like to address?
  • Are you already in decent shape but want to get stronger and leaner?
  • Are you working out regularly and still struggling to lose fat?
  • Have you been doing aerobics classes for a long time but still do not see any results?
  • Do you need your program adjusted to continue your progression?
  • Are you thinking about participating in a competitive sport and require coaching?

Built By Rowan Training Systems will address these issues with you and will push you to set and achieve new goals. We understand the process of diminishing returns — that the more athletic you become, the more intelligent and intense your program has to be. We will identify any holes in your program, muscular asymmetries, technical problems, and correct them. Let us help you maximize your potential.

Competitive Athletes

While competitive athletes develop specific skills during practice and their game, it’s the hard work in the gym that truly maximizes performance levels. Here are some important questions that athletes out there must consider in their training programs:

  • Is your training program appropriate for your skill level?
  • Are you properly prepared, both physically and psychologically, for try-outs?
  • Is your warm-up custom designed and tailored to your individual needs?
  • Do you need coaching on your exercise technique?
  • Is your training enhancing or impairing your performance during the game?
  • Is your program adapting to your training seasons?
  • Do you feel you may have the skills to play competitively, but not the size or strength?
  • What’s the best way to organize a training program to prepare for a competition?
  • Do you know how to gain, maintain, or cut weight for a weigh-in?
  • Do you know what the best equipment is to prepare for a game?
  • Are you injured and don’t know how to progress without making it worse?

Built By Rowan Training Systems is fully knowledgeable about working with athletes to prepare for games and competitions. We will help you develop the necessary skills to perform at the highest levels possible, and will train you before, during and after your season. In addition to advancing physical skills, we offer a holistic approach to preparing athletes to reach their full potential, both mentally and physically. And we do this by using techniques that minimize risk of injury.

Theses programs are progressive and based on the Built By Rowan Standardized Physical Evaluations. When you are prepared to move to the next phase the program is adjusted at your own speed.
