Our group classes feature comprehensive goal based strength and conditioning programming that’s progressive, ensuring that clients continuously improve.
All classes are programmed by our highly qualified, experienced and respected trainers known as Team 98.
General Physical Preparedness
The plan for these sessions is to front load or back fill weak areas, mobility, flexibility and assistance work needed for joint health and performance increases. Increasing the general workload thus increasing the persons overall ability. This can be a technique based session if need as well. Sessions will be designed to get you moving after a day or two off, increasing your muscular endurance and over all work rate.
The strength component will run through a number of phases:
- Strength (building a strong base)
- Power (developing from your STR base)
- Strength Endurance (increasing your overall capacity formed by the previous STR/PWR blocks) This means squatting in all forms, pressing, deadlifting, and all accessory movements that come along with a solid program.
The advanced strength class (ADV STR) is designed and programmed for members who have trained and demonstrated an above average level of strength (STR) and skill. These sessions will be higher in volume and intensity than normal STR sessions, members will be exposed to variations in stance, bars, movements and techniques. This class will work in conjunction with the current 98 program. Minimum standards apply.
Interval Weight Training
A highly sophisticated and effective means of multi-variable cross-training to optimise performance in a wide variety of sports. Through the proper selection and manipulation of IWT intensity (load, intensity, volume, and frequency of training) an extremely high level of total athletic fitness can be achieved.
Energy System Development
Energy System Development (ESD) sessions are comprised of interval work on the ski/rower/bike/running. This works in conjunction with the strength (STR) cycle to increase power, speed and VO2 Max.
This means improving your overall work capacity, enabling you to work harder and stronger, whilst improving your ability to recover from extended work and remain focused on the task at hand.
Functional Training Class
FTC sessions are designed specifically with a higher intensity in mind. Purpose driven with a combination of kettlebell, barbell and bodyweight movements interlaced with interval and tempo work across all energy systems.
F*ck You Friday
The goal of FYF is to showcase your mental and physical capability, why we are who we are. This is your chance to explore the grit and determination forged in the previous weeks/blocks of training.
Preparing an athlete to succeed in their sporting arena boils down to this – you must appropriately apply your training tools to trans-fer weight room progress to the arena or you’re just wasting time. Though simple on paper, somehow this approach gets lost when a coach works with a novice athlete. But this won’t happen at 98 Riley St
‘The ability to do something well.’ That is the definition of the word skill. The goal of this session is to learn and challenge yourself while developing a new movement skills sets that value add to your training.
Mondays SKL session will be gymnastic focused. Wednesdays will be Olympic lifting focused.
