the s.m.a.r.t. fitness method
We often get asked a lot what we do at our gym. Are you a Powerlifting gym? Do you do CrossFit? Are you doing therapeutic exercises? Is it bodybuilding? HIIT? Circuit Training? Are you running boot camps?
The answer to all those questions is YES--sort of. At Restored Strength, we've combined years of education in classrooms, online certifications, live workshops, books, and study with renowned experts into a hybrid of the most efficient, effective fitness practices available today.
Our specialty is combining functional training with a blend of the exercise methods mentioned above. We take non-traditional equipment like kettlebells, resistance bands, and sandbags and use them right along with timeless equipment like barbells, dumbbells, and bodyweight.
Coach William has spent years learning from everyone from kettlebell experts like Andrea DuCane & Coach Fury to movement specialists like Max Shank & Tim Anderson to elite programming professionals like the team at Strength Faction. He took everything that they taught him and created S.M.A.R.T. Fitness:
S - Strength
M - Mobility
A - Adaptive
R - Resistance
T - Training
STRENGTH - The foundation of
everything that we do is strength. No
one regrets being strong! Think of the
relationship between strength and
overall health as a glass of water:
strength is the glass that you can fill
with the water of weight loss, mobility,
endurance, agility, stability
ADAPTIVE - We meet you where you are at: adapting our training method to your level of activity. Whether you're new to fitness or have years of exercise under your belt, our programming will accommodate your goals. As your body begins to adapt to the training and exercises, we will always deliver ways to progress you, making the staple exercises more challenging based on your individual goals and needs.
MOBILITY - Your ability to move is just as important as your strength. As we age, our bodies often sustain injuries or just stop moving as well as they once did. Creating greater mobility by using corrective exercises will help your joints feel stronger and more mobile, allowing you to move and bend the way you want to.
RESISTANCE - We use a vast variety of implements ranging from barbells to dumbbells, kettlebells to sandbags, resistance bands to body weight. The tools we use to gain results will always vary. They each serve their own specific purpose and will help you reach your goals.
TRAINING - We don’t call our sessions “workouts” at our facility because "working out" often means exercising just to get sweaty or burn calories with no set goal. We use the word training because we are practicing specific skills for clearly defined purposes.
Each time you come to our gym, you'll get a full-body, multi-joint training session to builds strength, mobility, and cardiovascular endurance while burning fat.
Because each session works your entire body, there's no need to take a day off between sessions. At the same time, our training sessions are so efficient that many of our members find they get more results in less time! That's SMART fitness!
