What makes Synergy Strength different?
Our members always say "to know synergy, you need to try it" and we agree. When our members travel to other facilities, upon return they always say "we didn't know we had it well, but did not know how well we had it" and we agree. What make us different to other places is we're not just a CrossFit affiliate, but we are so much more.
At Synergy we offer so much more, we program for powerlifting, weightlifting, kettlebell, kids fitness, masters fitness, Parkinson's, and so much more. We consider ourselves physical culturists, meaning we enjoy all strength sports and all things about the health and fitness industry.
At Synergy there is somebody there to help you whenever you are with us. Our coaches are passionate about what they do and want to see you improve - they are there for you and to help you achieve your goal . In a standard commercial gym you can go when you want but there isn't someone there to help you, who knows you, who is invested in your growth. We provide an environment that is about helping you be the best you possible.
Synergy is a one stop shop as we offer all aspects and all facets of wellness, fitness and health under one roof. Not only with the programs we offer, but we also offer a full spots therapy clinic; chiropractic, physiotherapy, massage, fascial stretch therapy, and more. Our focus is to be able to take care of everything so you can simply turn up, do what you need to and live the best life possible.
+Why are our coaches different?
We believe in chasing excellence. It's not enough for our staff to simply have the base credential to just get the job done. We work with the best coaches in the world in order to deliver the best coaching possible to our members. Our staff's collective knowledge and experience in not only CrossFit but also nutrition, weightlifting, strength and conditioning, endurance sports, gymnastics, etc and if we don't have the answers for you we guarantee we have the broader network of greats in their field to back you up.
+Is CrossFit for me?
We like to say "CrossFit isn't for everybody... but it is for ANYBODY". The best thing about CrossFit is that it is for anybody regardless of their current level or goals. CrossFit can make a competitive athlete bigger, stronger, faster and better at every athletic aspect of their sport but it can also help people who have never exercised before. It accommodates to both these examples and everyone in between.
Our CrossFit classes have 15 year olds to 70+ year olds. Competitive athletes to folks who just want to be as healthy as they can be for everyday life.
Whoever you are, whatever your background, CrossFit can make you a better version of you for today and long into the future.
Also, unique to Synergy is the number of other programs we offer...if CrossFit is not foryou- we have soemthign else that is.
+How many classes can I do?
With a Synergy membership you can attend as many classes as you if on the unlimited memerbship. We also offer many more memberships; 10x, 5x, couples, family, etc. Check out our schedule and pricing section for more info
+Do I need to be fit before I start?
NO! You wouldn't cut your hair yourself before going to a hairdresser would you? Well it's the same with the gym. It's our job to help you get fit, even if you've never worked out once in your life.
+What if I have never trained before?
See the above points. It really doesn't matter what stage you're at in your fitness journey, we're here to help, even if you've never stepped foot in a gym before. About a third of our members had never been in a gym before they started with us. And 90% of people had never done CrossFit before. We all have to start somewhere.
+Will I get bulky?
Not unless you want to. A lot of women and some men worry that they'll get bulky by lifting weights or doing CrossFit. Don't worry you won't accidentally do overnight what every guy who trains has spent their whole life trying to achieve. Form follows function and most people who train and eat well are much happier with their bodies. If you do want to put on some muscle though, that's great! We can help you with your training and nutrition to make that a reality.
+How often should I work out?
Anything from 8 to 12 workouts during your first month is solid. In time you should get comfortable with 3 to 4 classes per week. In general, we have very few people who get in more than 18 workouts per month.
+What if I have never lifted weights before
Again, that's fine. We work to a training principle of: TECHNIQUE - LOAD - INTENSITY. We teach you how to move, that movement is the same with weight as it would be with a PVC pipe. You'll never be asked to do something you can't do. We teach the technique THEN apply the weight. If it's under control only then would we introduce intensity. If we lose the technique we probably need to change the weight so that you can move safely and efficiently.
+Can my kids attend classes with me?
YES, we are a family focused facility, meaning we like to see families in our facility, but kids are not allowed to start regualr CrossFit classes until the age of 15...for safety reasons.
But, we do offer kids programming (DaBears) for kids ages 8+ and for specialty sports...it is at the descretion of the coach and parents as to when kids can start...talk to a specialty spot coach first.
+What if I have injuries?
Life happens, and sometimes that means dealing with injuries. If you have a serious problem that you think is preventing you from exercising we offer individual help to get you back on track and also work around that problem to figure out what you can do in the meantime.
If you feel you can exercise but have some restrictions that's alright, we can scale movements and focus on what you CAN do even in a class setting.
