At Black Box Fort Worth we like to know you and everything that drives you. Because of this we want to sit down with everyone and show you what we do and talk about how we can help you accomplish your goals.
To begin your training at Black Box Fort Worth you must do an introductory session with one of our coaches where we will talk about your exercise history, injury and health history, lifestyle factors, nutrition and goals. We will also put you through a short workout and recovery session designed to give you a small taste of our programing. This is meant to be your time to explore the gym and get to know us while we dig deeper into understanding what drives you.
To set up your intro session contact us at (817) 841 8678 or Dutch@BlackBoxFW.com.
After your intro session you will be able to better understand your goals and make some recommendations on what is most appropriate for your goals. It is with great pleasure that we can say that we have something for everyone. From Group Fitness classes to a Weightlifting team to recovery classes. We also offer personal training, small group coaching and individual skill sessions. For more information on all of our programs, go to the programs tag at the top of the page.
At Black Box Fort Worth’s weightlifting team practice you will experience the comraderie and team atmosphere that helps everyone thrive. There is always a coach on site to give technical feedback and tweak your program according to your needs for that day.
The weightlifting team meets at 6:30pm everyday of the week and is open to anyone interested in learning and doing the lifts (Snatch and clean and Jerk) on a regular basis.
The snatch and clean and jerk make up the Olympic sport of weightlifting. They are two of the most technical movements in sport and add on top of that the fact that the goal is to lift heavy weight only maximizes the complexity. When performed well they feel like a good golf swing, when done incorrectly the movements can be as frustrating as a long day on the golf course chasing your ball through the woods.
The snatch: also the fastest movement in sport is not only very technical but also very valuable for those who play other sports or have other activities outside the gym. The beauty is in the movement and the challenge is in perfecting it. We work in a top down progression and are able to pinpoint trouble movement before it becomes too ingrained in the body. This is the value of having a coach on site daily.
The clean and jerk is a much more strength based movement as the margin of error is much greater. Therefor, to get better at the clean and jerk you must strength train. Your coach will assist you with the programming of this but the hard work is done by you!
Everyone is invited to our weightlifting team practice so come out, learn the lifts and have some fun!!
