Winter news!



Hello AQ Strong Athletes. This winter season AQ Strong has quite a bit of updates and activity behind the scenes. We want to share the schedule through the holiday period and share upcoming upgrades to our Athletic Center and programs.

February 1 - 3: Closure for Chinese New Year Celebrations


Schedule Changes: Please check Gymmaster Schedule for updated info

December 24 - January 3rd: We will be upgrading the Weightlifting Area during this period. The Weightlifting floor will be closed off and some works will be underway throughout this period.

January 31: Possible early Closure for Chinese New Year celebrations (Stay tuned)



We have ALOT planned for the coming months. Some of the upgrades we are working on

New Weightlifting Area - Upgrade the flooring and adding new elements to Weightlifting, including brand new DC Blocks for easier stacking.

New Turf - We weren't very happy with the first installation, so we're putting in a new turf with better underlay and surface. Maybe you won't notice, but we'll know it's far better for speed and agility training!

New Posterior Chain Area - on order (90+ days away) are reverse hyperextensions, GHD and posterior chain equipment

Added ESD Equipment - We are adding another Concept2 Rower & SkiErg + 2 new Concept2 Bikes.

New Performance Tests - Vald ForcePlates & ForceFrame from Vald Performance - The Elite level assessment technology will become a part of our Advanced AQ Profile experience.


PROGRAMMING NEWS:

Trainheroic will migrate to Teambuildr. Sadly, Trainheroic has put up a pay wall requiring you to pay for access to your workout history with their latest update. This is not cool with us. Teambuildr offers better tracking and programming options so we're excited to move over. We'll keep you posted and working on the back end to make this a seamless transition as best we can.

Fighting Monkey Collaboration: We're partnering with world class Fighting Monkey program to build a mentorship program for our coaching team. As with all of our programs, we will integrate some of the Fighting Monkey principles and methods into our Athletic Quotient method and continue to push the innovation in athletic development for our community.

Liv Athletic: Stay tuned for more daily practice programs including Breathing, Regen & Recovery, Nutrition and Sleep.

New Coaches: We're bringing on board more coaches and will be educating them on our practices in the coming months. Our goal is to continue to offer more class options and grow the full range of services for our SPC Athletes.
