Welcome to the official home of STRONG Gym!

We are unique and radically different from every other fitness club/gym in the area because we focus on STRENGTH as the primary basis of functional health, body recomposition, and athletic and sport performance. We forge strength through basic barbell and bodyweight training that is simple and effective, but grounded in hard, yet rewarding work, impeccable form, and injury prevention.

STRONG Gym hosting a Starting Strength Training Camp: The Squat June 30!!!


Starting Strength Training Camp Registration and More Information

Starting Strength Training Camp: The Squat

Host: Matt Reynolds

Date & Location:
Saturday June 30, 2012
733 N West Bypass
Springfield, MO 65803

Spend the day learning the theory and practice of the low bar back squat with Starting Strength Coach and Staff Member Matt Reynolds. The session will begin with a lecture focused on the basics of the movement and will include a discussion of the anatomy and forces at work in the lift. We will then move into a practical session with plenty of time under the bar for all the participants. Participants will have an opportunity to put into practice the concepts addressed in the lecture while receiving coaching through their warm up and work sets. Through the entire process, attendees will learn the hallmarks of a properly executed movement and how it should look and feel when it is performed correctly. After the practical session, we will return for a discussion of programming and how to identify and correct common technical problems. The camp will wrap up with a question and answer session. Whether you are just starting out with strength training, struggling with the basics of the lift, or looking to polish your technique and understanding of these movements, you will come away with valuable insights and experience to benefit your training. Attendance will be capped at eight to allow for individualized instruction.

Proper weightlifting shoes are highly recommended and if participants have weightlifting belts, they are encouraged to bring them.
