FMS Movement Prep Workshop 10/13



What is Movement Preparation? Movement Preparation, as the term suggests, prepares your body for movement.  It is also a key component to the FMS training system that by itself can increase mobility, stability and the overall efficiency of movement patterns. This training model will systematically prepare the body for any and all training in the gym/field or game of life. During MP our goal is to increase core temperature, address key mobility and stability demands, and activate the nervous system using movements and speeds specific to that day’s training session.

This hands-on seminar will go over the advantages of such training and the concepts behind it.  Within this time, attendants will learn about specific types of MP and experience the benefits of its results with this seminar.  This presentation is for both trainers and clients who wish to learn more about pain free movement and increase their overall strength and well being.

When:        Saturday October 13th @ 9AM – 11AM
Where:    The Colosseum Gym
9159-F Red Branch Road
Columbia, MD 21043
Cost:        $25.00

Strongman Saturdays Begin Saturday Sept. 1 from 12-2pm


Have you ever seen a strongman competition on TV? You know, with the stones, car pull, and log press etc… well the Colosseum would like to invite you to train as the pros do. This style of training challenges your body to be physically strong all over and pushes your mental endurance to the limit. While Strongman training is reserved for the healthy, we want to get people of all ability levels trying this out.  We will be doing demonstrations on strongman events such as the Farmers Walk, Tire Flip, Axel Deadlift, Log Press, Yoke, and Monster Dumbbell. Once you’ve got a tutorial on how to safely use the equipment you will have a chance to try any or all of the events that interest you. Our plan is to create a club of Colosseum Members who are interested in meeting on a weekly Saturday basis to train for strongman, whether for competition or for love of fitness. This is open to all ability levels, male or female. Nonmembers are welcome to come as well so bring a friend!  And don’t get scared.  Read more on our blog. RSVP on our Facebook Event Page
