Small Group Training

Small group training offers you a variety of ways to meet your fitness goals. Have you thought about working with a trainer, but prefer working out with other people? Or, do you like that you can offset some of the cost associated with working alongside a personal trainer by training with other participants? Then maybe small group training is for you.

Strongman Competition - September 14

WSU Strongman is pairing up with WSU CrossFit to host our first annual Strongman Competition.  For the past five years WSU CrossFit has hosted an annual event called the Palouse Throwdown.  This year the event has been re-branded as The Palouse Throwdown: When Worlds Collide as it will include a CrossFit Competition AND a Strongman Competition.  Please note, these are two separate competitions happening at the same time. Thus, CrossFitters will not be expected to complete Strongman Events, and Strongman Athletes will not be expected to complete CrossFit workouts. Registration is open now and ends on September 8.  

Spartan Training

Spartan Training is a strength and conditioning program designed to teach fitness fundamentals that are used by the military, law enforcement, firefighters and first responders. This fitness class will focus on intensity, body weight, cardio, and calisthenics.

Women on Weights

Experience the weight room in a non-intimidating atmosphere. This 8-week course is designed just for women who may be new to using our weight room facilities. You will learn the basics of weight training and the healthy benefits that adding muscle can do for you while learning all about the weight room and the equipment to help you to your goals.

Introduction to Olympic Weightlifting: Tier 1

This 8-week course meets twice a week and gives you a strength and conditioning program focused on the clean & jerk, and the snatch. You will learn how to perform these movements, and learn why this is an Olympic sport.  A foundation of squatting, pressing, and lifting will also be included in this program.

Olympic Lifting: Tier 2

The Tier 2 Olympic Lifting course is an 8 week course that meets twice a week and is reserved for those who have already completed the Tier 1 class, or those who have experience with the Olympic Lifts (Clean, Jerk & Snatch).  Those wishing to join the Tier 2 course need to show proficiency in each of the lifts as basic technique will not be taught in this section. Rather, participants will be put through intermediate to advanced training programs (depending on the level of the group as a whole) based on the Olympic Lifts.

Introduction to Powerlifting: Tier 1

Develop a strong foundation with this 8-week course that will teach how to properly develop full body strength through weight training. The class will focus on developing the bench press, back squat, and deadlift. Over the duration of this class you will learn proper form, how to set up a strength training program, and become prepared to step into the powerlifting world whether the goal be competition or recreational.

Powerlifting: Tier 2

The Tier 2 Power Lifting course is a continuation of the Tier 1 course and is a small, group-based 8 week (16 session) training that focuses on strength adaptations though a strategically designed linear or undulating periodization program created by one of our nationally certified personal trainers.  The focus of the program will be using intermediate to advanced techniques to enhance the three main compound lifts; the bench, the squat, and the deadlift.  Each individual in the group will work at their own ability to achieve strength goals in each lift in a safe and strategic manner based on their own percentages. 

Introduction to Strongman Training

Intro to Strongman is an 8-week course that meets once a week and don’t let the name fool you, Strongman is open to all genders of all fitness levels.
