FAQ

What makes SLC Strength & Conditioning different?

Our programs are very unique and very few individuals, especially in the general population, get the opportunity to see and experience this type of training as this model is mostly implemented at the collegiate and professional athlete level because it’s proven to work and is scientifically backed. With that in mind, the training strategy that we implement at SLC Strength & Conditioning is designed to constantly progress the body and push your body to new limits with little to no risk of injury. We have the ability to train individuals of all experience levels ranging from novice to expert and the program(s) can be catered to any goal whether you’re looking for body building, functional movement, sport performance, or weight loss. 

Additionally, our team has your best interest in mind and we want to ensure your health and fitness goals are met. We understand that you may not know us yet, but we promise you are in good hands. The Strength and Conditioning Model that we implement at our gym is extremely scientific, complicated, and requires advanced knowledge of human anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, and kinesiology, years of experience with elite level coaches that implement and execute this training model, and continual research to ensure we are up to date with all of the information that we provide our clients. These are all standards and minimum qualifications that we require all coaching staff at SLC Strength & Conditioning to have. To elaborate further, all of our coaches hold a minimum of a bachelor’s degree in a related field, hold the NSCA/CSCS certification which is the gold standard in the industry, and they must have over 800 hours of training before they can call themselves a coach in our facility.
