How Do We Make it Happen? 

All options can be done either virtually or in person. 

Individual Training

For your athlete or child, one-on-one strength training sessions will help them develop the proper movement patterns, strength, and power they need to excel. In an individual session, we can spend time working specifically on their body's needs and goals, and correcting any imbalances to prevent injury or regain strength after injury.  

Sessions are offered at 1 hr or 45min lengths.

Team or Small Group Training

Whether you would like to introduce this to your whole team, or if you have a couple athletes who you feel can benefit from some more targeted attention, Bend Don't Break can offer training and programming specific to developing the aspects of fitness needed most for your sport. Programming is not cookie cutter, and will take into consideration your competition and vacation schedules.

Sessions are offered at 1 hr or 45min lengths.

Strength Classes


For your gym or studio, strength classes may be the option for you. For either 45 minutes or 1 hours length options, a strength training class can fit easily into your regular schedule rotation and provide your athletes with the extra boost they need to succeed. Classes can be modified to fit your studio's specific needs or goals, but will always keep a focus to developing proper movement patterns, strength, power, and biomechanical balance in the body.
