Core Blend Training has always strived to provide the best possible group classes for its clients. The classes have evolved from group workouts with everyone doing the same thing, to differentiating exercise selection for different people, offering different programs based on the number of days people were attending, to now offering bias programs. It is not something I’ve ever seen done in a group class, but it’s a natural evolution of what we’ve been trying to do. We want to provide a one on one experience in a group class setting. Different programs have already been designed for 2,3,4, or 5 day a week participants, but now we’ll offer 3 different plans for each class schedule.
Core Blend Jacked is most similar to what people have been doing in classes already (and that Corey has used for years). It is built for people that care equally about strength, aesthetics, and cardiovascular performance. In short, if you want to be a “jack of all trades” Jacked is for you. If you want to lift heavy AND look like you lift, Jacked is your program.
Core Blend Defined is built for people that have the goal of improving muscle definition through a combination of strength moves, bodybuilding, and cardio. Taking full advantage of all of our cardio equipment, bodybuilding machines, and advanced intensity techniques the Defined program is perfect for someone trying to feel their best.
Core Blend Fortified is a program that takes full advantage of our extensive powerlifting equipment and pushes people to get as strong as they can be. The focus is on building a body that is ready to move powerfully in any direction and handle any physical task thrown at it.
These are bias programs. Someone with excess weight would be expected to lose weight on Core Blend Fortified even though that isn’t the primary goal. We would expect someone to get stronger on Core Blend Defined. Pick the program that will be most enjoyable to you and helps you reach the goals you value most. You can change programs and switch at any time (ideally at the end of the program, but it’s up to you).
Although people will spread out during the beginning of the class, the final 20 minutes of the class will be doing cardio together. Like before, this will be a combination of group, partner, solo, long, and short bouts of work. You will have 40 minutes for warm up and your goal specific workout before the trainer brings the group back together for the cardiovascular finisher.
