At Beyond Parallel, our passion is fitness. Our goal as a gym is to help create a more fit community through group exercise classes. Our coaches are top notch at running safe and effective classes. Constantly varied, functional movements at high intensity is the heart and soul of our program. We pride ourselves in making a stronger, faster, and more confident community of fitness enthusiasts. We are Beyond Parallel.
We strongly believe in the goals of increasing lean muscle mass and strength. Our programming is built around that philosophy. Research shows that fat loss, metabolism and overall health is increased more rapidly by focusing on strength training in conjunction with cardiovascular exercises as opposed to cardiovascular workouts alone. Many of our members started strength training hesitantly, because of the myths that strength training is only for athletes, or will affect your body in a negative way. These same people have seen incredible changes in their body, reaching both performance and physique goals in a way they never thought possible.
We offer three different types of programs. All three offer both strength and conditioning aspects according to different scales. We meet with all new members to discuss individual goals, and decide on which program best meets their needs.
A typical class begins with a group warm up, followed by strength or skill work, then a cardio component. Our coaches lead the entire class, ensuring that all members are performing lifts and movements properly. At Beyond Parallel we pride ourselves on our knowledge and ability to coach proper technique.
Without a doubt, our focus on one-on-one attention. One of our members recently described our gym as “a membership to personal training.” We cap our class sizes so that we feel confident that every member is safe and cared for in every class. We know each member well, including their current fitness level, any limitations they may have, skills they are working towards, and goals that they have.
