Starting Strength Technique Coaching

For those interested specifically in learning the 5 Starting Strength lifts we offer Starting Strength mini-camps, or 1-on-1 coaching sessions by special request.

Both options revolve around learning and practicing the basic barbell lifts: Squat, Press, Bench Press, Deadlift, and Power Clean. Learning and practicing these lifts will develop the foundation for all future training to follow.

Starting Strength mini-camps are our primary method for technique sessions.  Mini-camps are small sessions with a maximum of 3 lifters who do the session together.  All of your sets and reps will be performed under coaches’ supervision, the other lifters will be coached while you’re resting between sets.  The upside is a reduced rate, and the opportunity to watch other people doing the lifts and getting coached, which can often be instructive.

1-on-1 sessions are available by special request only.  They offer the benefit of my undivided attention and the opportunity to ask questions and discuss your specific lifting issues in greater detail between sets.  These benefits are available for a larger investment than semi-private sessions.  1-on-1s can be scheduled during available off-peak hours during the week, or on Saturdays at 2:30pm on weeks when I do not have a semi-private group or other commitment at that time.

In both cases, initial sessions are 90 minutes long, during which we cover 2-3 lifts, depending upon how much coaching is needed and how quickly you pick things up.  Subsequent sessions of 60-90 minutes can then be scheduled as desired for a reduced rate compared the your initial session.

Beginning in June, 2017, all SS mini-camps will take place on the first and last Saturday of the month, from 2:30-4:00pm, unless noted otherwise here.  These sessions will have a limit of three lifters per session.  As always, email to book your spot.
