What is Strength Squad?

Strength Squad is a progressive workout program focused on building strength and muscle by perfecting your barbell back squat, barbell chest press, barbell shoulder press, row, and deadlift. In addition to these lifts, the program incorporates mobility, balance, and core work, utilizing auxiliary exercises to make this an all-inclusive workout. You will master the five major lifts with good form, leading to measurable strength gains and leaning out the body.

Strength Squad Details:

Strength Squad is a tailored training program which makes use of the most basic human movement patterns to progressively strengthen the entire body as a coordinated system, gradually increasing loads which make the whole body stronger and more efficient.

To accomplish this, our program uses the primary barbell exercises which involve the body’s entire muscular system. These movements are utilized over the longest effective range of motion and loaded progressively, to force the adaptations necessary for increased strength.

The program includes:

  • 55-minute workouts twice per week in small groups (maximum 5 people to allow for distancing) led by a certified personal trainer + a third workout programmed by the trainer for you to complete on your own
  • A tracking spreadsheet to track all progress with measured weekly increases
  • A time-tested linear progression of essential barbell lifts: Squat, Overhead Press, Bench Press, and Deadlift
  • Tailored coaching and personal attention to ensure your form is impeccable, safe, and modified for your specific needs
  • Accessory movements targeted for strength, quality movement, as well as some specific metabolic conditioning
  • FREE Stamina Field gym membership during the program ($285 value)
  • All of the above plus unlimited gym access, rowing and cycling classes exclusive to Squad members, all for $308 + tax per month

Squads are offered at a variety of times to accommodate most schedules. Check out the squad schedule here. When signing up for Strength Squad, be sure to note that times and days are grouped to occur at the same time on Monday/Wednesday, Wednesday/Friday or Tuesday/Thursday.

Strength Squad Testimonials

“Before FIT Squad, I never had much interest in lifting weights. I always focused on cardio to stay fit. I cannot believe how much iron squad has changed the way my body looks and feels. My waist is smaller, I have muscle definition and I am much stronger.  I wanted to learn the basic lifts well enough to be comfortable doing them on my own. Sean’s teaching method and coaching gave me the skill and confidence to continue training on my own.  I am amazed that I am able to lift the amount of weight that I am now able to lift and how it has changed the shape of my body in a relatively short period of time.” ~Kristi

“I love FIT Squad – I jumped into a session that had already started in the late summer and I’m happy that I did!  The commitment to FIT Squad helps my overall motivation to get to the gym regularly – I never know what’s coming in the next FIT Squad workout so I know that I need to keep myself conditioned.  FIT Squad is fun & challenging – Jim is creative and very thoughtful with his progression of exercises.  For me, the best benefit of FIT Squad is how it translates to life outside of Rival – I’m stronger, faster and have more endurance on my road bike, my yoga practice continues to improve and I feel better conditioned in the other Rival classes (i.e. rowing).” ~Rebecca

“Before joining FIT Squad, I had never, as in ever, really been to a gym.  About a year and half ago, I started FIT Squad with little confidence that one hour a week could make a significant difference. I was astounded to see the progress I made in just a few months.  Not only did my physical conditioning improve but my mental conditioning did also.  I had more energy, clarity and focus in my daily life and work.  The training and skills I learned in FIT Squad allowed me to try new things.  While continuing FIT Squad with Jim, my schedule now includes 4 to 5 days a week of cycling, rowing, and other outdoor sports.  To say that one hour a week of FIT Squad changed my life would not be an overstatement.” ~Keith

“FIT Squad has definitely helped me get into the best shape of my life. I used to just do my own thing at the gym, alternating weight lifting with cardio exercises. Problem was that I’d only work a few muscle groups at a time, mostly arms and chest, and I never built any core strength. Now with each FIT Squad workout, I build on previous efforts and I finally have core strength and endurance. FIT Squad is a total body workout, and I have actually gained 5 pounds of muscle, mostly in my legs and core muscle groups.” ~Jim
