Welcome Back to Training

Welcome back to training everyone!  I hope you have had a great Summer and spent some time training in community facilities......but it's time to return home to the best place to train in Lethbridge!

It has been a busy Summer of prepping to get the space ready.  We have all new plyoboxes, hex bars, belts and so much more.  Make sure you stop in for a visit even if you aren't ready to get started.  

Start up for users is set to kick off on Sept. 18 as opening day.  As always, hours are posted on the site and on the door outside the Fitness Center.  All information about operations can be found under the "About Us" drop menu.  You will require a waiver form to use the space that can accessed on the side menu links and/or you can pick one up from me in person.  During school time availability for open gym is during period 1.  Waiver forms can be accessed directly by clicking the link HERE 

Our online store is still up and running and can be accessed from the sidebar menu.  Orders are placed directly through the online store and are delivered to the school within 2 weeks of ordering.  if you are looking to pick up a shirt, my recommendation is the Next Level brand shirt.  It is the one I have specifically requested be placed on the site due to quality, feel and the fact that it is an amazing training shirt based on how it feels, moves and breathes (plus it is not the fabric that will pull the stink right out of you).  The Next Level specific shirt can be accessed directly at the this link for you to customize.  Click HERE

As a reminder, the facility use is FREE!  However, we do survive on donations to help with costs of maintaining and upkeeping the space.  If you would like to donate to the program, you can access the donation page by clicking the link HERE .  This link will provide you options to donate either online via bringing the form in or directly online through SchoolCash Online.  Something to note is that SchoolCash does skim 4% off every donation made through the service.

If you have any questions, please email me through the contact form on the side bar menu Contact Form.  the contact form links directly to my email and I will get back to you with a reply usually within 24 hours.

I am looking forward to seeing old faces, welcoming new faces and helping to spread the good word of training related endeavors to as many people as possible.  See you all soon

Poster Week is Underway

 Every semester the amazing young athletes of LCI Fitness put their skills to the test in a week long event called poster week.  During this week students apply their abilities in pursuit of a PRM (Perfect Rep Maximum).  This is a little different than a standard RM as the dictating factor for lift completion is based on technical proficiency paired with load and not just load. As such, athletes do lift submaximally as the amount they could move if allowed to have technique get ugly has the potential to be higher but at a significant cost and potential for injury.  The goal is to do the best you can in perfect style!  Here is a glimpse of some of our amazing lifters!

Buy A Bar Fundraiser Lands!!!

 This year LCI intern Colt Cronkite took on the fundraiser "Buy a Bar 2.0".  Through the fundraiser he was able to raise enough donations to bring 10 Hex/Trap bars into our training space for the students to be able to learn and use.  These will be a huge benefit for us in teaching proper positioning and opening up an entirely new avenue of training for the space.  

Big thanks to Colt for putting the time and effort into this and coming through big for the community.
