What should I expect in a class?

Our classes are 45-60 minutes and include a warm up, stretching, and a daily focus. Typically, the daily focus is 15-20 minutes of functional fitness timed workouts, but periodically we focus solely on strength development. 
Every class is run by a coach. We offer individual feedback within the small group, but guide everyone through the daily session. 
Every class has a 12 person cap to keep the coach:member ratio compatible for a quality service. 

Is class beginner friendly?

Our program has adapted over the years. We love having new members Join The Herd. For that reason, we make sure to accommodate new members and reduce the workload and provide safe movement options. Hurting our clients does not help us grow and does not help you love us either. 
Every daily workout has beginner, intermediate, and advanced options designed off of one “prescribed” workout. Since every class is coached, you have someone at your disposal to guide you in the right direction. 

What is Beyond the Whiteboard?

We subscribe to an application called Beyond the Whiteboard (BTWB). This app allows you to view the daily workout, warm up, mobility, workout prep, and tips videos. After your workout you can record your time or score, so that when the workout is repeated down the road you can do an evaluation of your progress over time. Monitor your strength development in real time. Another cool feature is a social media aspect, where you can stay engaged with other members.

What do I need to bring?

Gym clothes, indoor shoes, and a water bottle. 

Do you have change rooms? Shower?

We have two bathrooms/change rooms available and one has a shower. 

Can I bring my kids?

Absolutely! Our new facility was designed with a small kids room for them to hang out in a safe area away from the workout space. Bring some toys and snacks, while mom/dad get in a workout! We ask you to please clean and sanitize appropriately after each use. 

Do you offer meal plans?

We have a registered dietitian available to help you with any health and fitness goals you have. A registered dietitian accumulates 5 years of undergraduate nutrition science knowledge, followed by a dietetic practicum across the spectrum of nutrition specialties. 
Our registered dietitian specializes in chronic disease education, weight management, and general healthy eating advice. 
Check your health benefit plan to see if you have coverage available to work with an RD!
