Welcome to Starting Strength Gyms
YOUR FIRST DAY
Your coach will welcome you to the gym upon arrival at your scheduled time. During your introduction to Starting Strength, you'll learn the basics of Starting Strength, as well as how to perform the squat, the press, and the deadlift. By the end of the session, you will have established a baseline of strength for each of the three lifts.Your coach will help you sign in to our Digital Logbook App to track the day's training session and will advise you what you'll be lifting next time. Before leaving, your coach will confirm the date and time of your first group training session.In your second training session, you'll add a little bit of weight to each lift, and you will be on your way to becoming stronger than you've ever been.
What to wear:
- A 100% cotton t-shirt
- Stretchy shorts or pants that you can squat in
- Weightlifting shoes. Don’t worry, if you don’t have a pair, wear your flattest, least squishy-soled shoes. Converse are better than basketball shoes, but we will make do with what you have.
What to bring:
- A water bottle
- A hand towel
