Our Group Fitness Class

Once you graduate fundamentals it’s time to start classes. At this point, you should be proud of your new found level of fitness and the excitement to start a class should be off the charts! You’ve probably even made a few friends in the gym.

Our Group Class focuses on incorporating 7 foundational movements (Squat, Step, Push, Pull, Hinge, Jump + Carry) through in an infinite number of combinations.

In our core class offering, we incorporate principles from Bodybuilding, Functional Fitness, Corrective Exercise/Prehab, and others to turn you into a strong + able, lean, mean fitness machine. Regardless of your ability, with our unique small group class structure we can ensure each and every athlete/client/member gets challenged at their own unique level – from beginner to advanced.

Furthermore, your PERSONAL COACH will be checking in with you to ensure that you are making the progress you want to see.

We will lift weights in various ways, whether that is a Squat variation, a Power Clean or a Dumbbell Movement, as well as move our bodies in various different ways, in different directions to help you MOVE better, FEEL better and PERFORM your best in all aspects of fitness.

No more starting a program and never finishing it, we’re here to make sure you’re in the gym as often as you need to be!

What to Expect?

We are NOT the CrossFit down the street!

We do things different.

Jumping right into classes does not set you up for success. Group On-Ramps do not set YOU up for success.

Yes, we did those things in the past. We learned our lesson. We’ve worked and studied for years to become better Coaches and provide you with the SOLUTIONS you want!

Here’s HOW we set you up for SUCCESS:

FREE CONSULTATION with a Coach where we learn about you, your health and workout history and start to build a relationship of trust with you.

FITNESS ASSESSMENT – We cover everything: Flexibility, Mobility, Body Control, Movement, Core Stamina, Strength Imbalances, Cardiovascular Endurance. The results of the Assessment give us a TON of information about YOU and how we can best HELP you solve your problems and reach your goals. This gives us a Roadmap going forwards

FUNDAMENTALS OF FITNESS – One on One Sessions with a Coach. Based on your Assessment, we begin to BUILD YOU UP and TEACH you all of the functional movements that take place in our gym. It’s important to put in this time to get you prepared for our Classes!

COACH FOR LIFE – A Partner to help guide you on your Fitness Journey. Your Coach will help with Goal Setting, perform periodic Assessments, and provide One on One training and Personalized Programming as desired.

Do I have to be fit to participate?

No. Our program will get you in shape no matter what your current fitness level is. As you become fitter, workouts will become more challenging. Every workout is designed to help you succeed, improve fitness and move you toward your goals.

Our program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience.

What kind of movements/exercises can I expect?

Class programming will include a strength portion in which you’ll work on something like Olympic weightlifting, deadlifting, squatting or bodyweight strength or you may work on a skill like handstand push-ups. After the strength or skill portion of the class is complete, most days will involve a WOD (Workout Of The Day). WODS can be anywhere between 5 to 20 minutes or more.

Is for me?

Yes. Everyone can do our program regardless of age, injuries and current fitness levels. The program is modified for each person to help him or her safely become healthier and fitter. Grandparents and Olympians can perform modified versions of the same general workout.

What kind of results can I expect?

Be patient. Results take time but if you’re consistent, they absolutely will come. The exciting thing as a beginner is that results come fairly quickly, even in 30 days you can really see a difference in your strength and overall fitness.

Do I have to stop eating donuts?

Do enjoy special indulgences and meals. It’s a lifestyle, but it has to be manageable and realistic for the long-term. Luckily, the healthier you eat, the healthier you tend to want to eat. You get hooked on feeling good and junk food just isn’t worth it.

By avoiding excessive amounts of refined carbohydrates and measuring your intake of protein, carbohydrates and fat, you will see dramatic, measurable increases in health.

Can I get hurt?

Our program uses safe, effective and efficient movements similar to those you use every day in life.

How often should I come?

2-4 classes a week is a realistic for beginners, depending on your level of fitness when you start. It may take a while for your body to get used to training at that intensity, so at the beginning you might need more recovery time between training days. Over the first few months, start working your way up to training 5 days a week.

Real People. Real Results

"This is my first ever gym membership and I was nervous about starting, but everyone was friendly and supportive. I went from not working out in years to looking forward to it and seeing results!"

"Through out my time at IFA, Jordan has always been an inspiration and friendly. He personally helped me during the Holiday weight loss challenge and since then I have begun taking personal instruction from him. He is a great teacher, coach, and I would call him a friend."
