NYC: Starting Strength Technique Coaching

For those interested specifically in learning the 5 Starting Strength lifts we offer regularly scheduled Starting Strength mini-camps at Solace New York on 32nd St.

Starting Strength mini-camps are our primary method for technique sessions.  Mini-camps are 90 minute sessions, held on select Saturdays from 2:30-4:00pm, with a maximum of 3 lifters who do the session together.  They revolve around learning and practicing any two of the primary barbell lifts that comprise the Starting Strength program: Squat, Press, Bench Press, Deadlift, (and Power Clean, if appropriate).

Each lifter will have his/her own complete station to work on, so no sharing of equipment is necessary.  All of your sets and reps will be performed under coaches’ supervision; the other lifters will be coached while you’re resting between sets so you have the opportunity to watch other people doing the lifts and getting coached as well.   However, to get 2 lifts x 3 people in 90 mins, we need to stay on topic and broader questions about programming, nutrition, and other topics take us too far afield for this session.

If you want to do a 1-on-1 session in order to get a greater in depth explanation of why we’re doing things a certain way, or to ask personalized questions about programming, nutrition, etc…those are available on a very limited basis, by special request only.  Please note this in your email if you want to do a 1-on-1 session.

To Book:    Email to book or with questions.  There is a 2 minute online sign-up process to complete just once, and once you have completed that and confirmed, your payment will be processed.  Returning lifters do not have to re-fill out the form as long as your credit card info is current.

Rates: 90 minute semi-private minicamps with a maximum of three total lifters are $180 per person.

1-on-1 sessions are offered for: 60 minutes @ $180, 90 minutes @ $235, 120 minutes @ $275.
