At Our Core
How We Train
Our training philosophy is built on these seven principals:
#1 Keep it safe. Proper technique, the appropriate progressions and recovery.
#2 Mobility. Exercises to improve flexibility and daily function.
#3 Stability. A big part of doing exercises right is being able to stabilize your body. Creating a strong core is essential to your overall wellness and fitness ability.
#4 Strength Training. Strength training can increase your bone density, help to manage weight, increase your metabolism and decrease risk of injury
#5 HIIT. HIIT (high intensity interval training) benefits include lower body fat, improved heart rate and blood pressure, and may also help lower blood sugar and improve insulin sensitivity. HIIT is intense bursts of activity and fixed periods of less-intense activity or even complete rest.
#6 Nutrition. We do not promote any one specific way to eat. i.e. Paleo, Keto, Vegan… What we do promote is a clean, well-balanced plan for your unique body, lifestyle and needs. One size does not fit all when it comes to your daily food needs. We feel a fueling and eating plan should be sustainable over the long term for a fit and healthy life.
#7 Consistency. This should probably be #1 because without consistency, we will not have progress. This is why we offer a Final Surge account for each athlete. We can track daily progress, plan weeks in advance, monitor health and stay in constant contact.
Where We Train
We want to make fitness as accessible and convenient as possible.

All sessions will be on Galveston Island but we can go from East to West.
