Training For Warriors (TFW) is a fitness program originally created for some of the best combat athletes in the world more than 15 years ago. Over that time, it was recognized that the training methods of the TFW system can benefit anyone looking to lose fat, build muscle and feel good.
The definition of a Dojo is a place of learning where one practices what is being taught. Training For Warriors is not just a workout or training session. We aim to teach, motivate, inspire and make you better each time you come through the doors. That’s why we call our ‘clients’ students and our ‘sessions’ practice.
We don’t like the idea of training for medieval warfare either. We define a warrior as anyone that is prepared to work hard and develop oneself in an effort to battle against his or her particular challenges in life. Our daily workouts are designed to develop the muscular strength and mental fortitude for you to take on those challenges.
We understand you may nervous during your first few sessions with us and overcoming an injury is no easy feat. TFW has specific protocols including an extensive warm up that is meant prepare your body for the practice and greatly decrease risk of injury. And as far as your current injuries and/or limitations, the system can be easily modified by your coach. Before you take part in any practice, a TFW coach will put you through an extensive assessment to identify any limitations or muscle imbalances that can be a precursor to injury.
You should be dressed in clothes that are easy to move around in and wear athletic shoes. Some students also bring gloves to get a better grip on the weights, but it is not necessary. We have towels, water and a place for you to change if needed.
The TFW practices are designed to stimulate muscle, burn fat, and most importantly make students better. We describe becoming ‘better’ as getting stronger, decreasing body fat composition, getting motivated to eat the right things, mastering technique, increasing confidence/mental fortitude, improving posture, improving muscular and cardiovascular endurance and much more! A typical TFW practice is 50 minutes to 1 hour in length and depending on the day is either resistance / strength based or a metabolic practice that we call Hurricanes!
That is a complicated question with a lot of variables, including the overall nature of your goals. Our coaches will help you set realistic goals, track your progress and support you at every step of your journey.
