Irving understands my goals to build strength for BJJ and helps me work towards them.
I have been training at the PIT since July 2012 after a fellow Brazilian Jiu-jitsu (BJJ) team mate recommended that I try some of their classes to supplement my training. I started off doing Metcon classes and though every session left me sweating buckets and sore for days, this continuous conditioning did not really transform into what I want to achieve ‚Äì to get stronger. That’s when Irving started a Strength class which I was one of the pioneer attendees. He put me on a program tailored to my abilities consisting of only four things; Deadlifts, Squats, Bench and Shoulder presses with the bar bell. No fancy equipment or the latest fitness innovations; just pure old school metal bars. The fanciest equipment is probably gymnastics rings which we use for axillary exercises or ‚Äòhomework’ that Irving prescribes. Irving understands my goals to build strength for BJJ and helps me work towards them. The strength program has made me more resilient in training and reduces the likelihood of injuries. It has also helped me perform better in Metcon classes, which further develops power and endurance required for my sport. This is one holistic strength AND conditioning facility that I couldn’t be happier with. Coupled with supportive coaches and peers, everyone is constantly looking out for one another and celebrates every little achievement you make in and out of the gym.
