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.  Each lifter will have his/her own complete station to work on, so no sharing of bars, racks, plates or benches 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.  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. Camps are always 90 mins, but for 1-on-1s, follow-up sessions at the length of your choice can be scheduled after the initial session, for a reduced rate compared to 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, and will require a deposit of $50 in advance via PayPal or E-check to hold your spot.  As always, email to book or with questions.
