No. PLAE HARD’s mission is to increase endurance, strength and conditioning, and core fitness in a planned, progressive program. Our Next Level Training focuses on total-body conditioning with a safe, effective purpose in mind. Our facility will have an open layout, similar to CrossFit boxes, but our purpose and programming are completely different.
Functional training refers to exercises that mimic everyday movement. PLAE HARD educates members about why movements are included in the program, what specific muscle groups are being worked and how/why this is beneficial. We teach people how to move. Ground-based training refers to participants exercising on their feet – training that deals with points of contact on the ground. This ensures natural movement that imitates everyday patterns. Think squats instead of leg presses.
All of our classes are high-intensity, but we strongly encourage you to progress at your own pace. That is why you’ll see a wide range of skill levels in any single class. We want you to move correctly, to understand and practice great form, and to stay in your lane. Our promise is that if you do, you’ll be surprising yourself before you know it.
We are currently capping classes at 15 participants. That enables us to provide personal attention to each individual, while also ensuring an energetic group atmosphere.
Class registration is available here on our website. You may also download our PLAE HARD app on your mobile device to manage your workout schedule on the go.
Check out our registration page for more details.
Assuming a class is not full, you can sign up until it begins. We usually cap how many are allowed into a single session, but we also provide a waiting list, just in case someone cancels. If you are to register and then later change your mind, you must cancel at least 12 hours before class.
Members may use the public parking lots behind Woodstock Pharmacy or beside Woodstock Methodist Church.
That depends on how far along you are. We encourage you to show up for class, but because of the many changes your body is undergoing, we may need to adjust our programming to be on the safe side.
If you have limitations, we’ll be sure to get them addressed before we begin the program. One of our core values is the importance of understanding and working with your body in its current state. In light of that, we’ll be eager to maximize your experience by making appropriate adjustments.
We require that anyone aged 17 or younger be accompanied by a parent or guardian to sign in.
We do not use contracts, so you can cancel at any time.
Yes, we do! Check out our class schedule for more information.
