Never Boring, Killer Fitness Training

I joined the AVC Elite Training team because I was in need of getting refocused on my health. I finally recognized that what I was doing on my own was not cutting it. I knew I needed direction and accountability. Best decision I ever made!

Killer WorkoutsWhat I love about AVC Elite Training is that you not only get one-on-one expertise and personal attention, but you also benefit from the other team members who are more than willing to support and help the new kid on the block. It didn’t matter that I was clearly starting from scratch.

Amy is amazing with recognizing where we each are at in our fitness levels and offers modifications for those of us who may not quite be at the level of others in the group. She’s constantly educating the team on hydration, recovery, avoiding injuries, etc.

You’re not just getting killer work outs, you’re getting a well rounded understanding of what we are doing and why. I certainly didn’t think I would be getting the full package when I signed up.

Our works outs are difficult (sometimes a little intimidating), but they are also fun and always gratifying. Amy is also very thoughtful about what she plans for our work outs, it’s never boring and it’s obvious she has put in a lot of time in planning our time together. No two days are alike!

Although it’s only been a short time I’ve been with the group, I can’t imagine going back to gyms, or going at it alone ever again. There’s nothing like looking forward to get a nice butt kicking two days a week and being accountable not only to our coach, but to our team.

Running Reinvented…

I thought my running days were over years ago. The constant pounding on my joints led to numerous aches and pains and as I got older, it was no longer worth the physical toll.

Hooking up with Amy at the gym 5 years ago was a refreshing change. When she proposed this “natural running” concept in the Spring 2011, all I could picture was running barefoot in the jungle!

I was skeptical, thinking “How could running possibly be reinvented? Running is running!” Amy’s enthusiasm won me over and I gave it a try.

Meeting in the park one Saturday morning, Amy introduced the idea of this new way of running and a whole new set of rules which made perfect sense: For me, it’s all in the foot strike.

A mid-foot landing, right in the center of body mass, makes all the difference in the world!  Newton shoes help tremendously with identifying this magic spot and eliminate all the heel cushion that is not needed to run as the body was made to run.

Other corrections followed: slight lean forward, quick steps, not overdoing the heel kick, using a metronome for proper cadence, arms moving correctly on your side.

Putting all of these adjustments together was not easy, it takes constant attention and practice, but when it comes all together, something clicks and suddenly you know you are running effortlessly, efficiently, safely and so smoothly.

I now look forward to running. I rarely have injuries and look forward to the challenge of all the proper techniques coming together for a good run!

Prepare to be Addicted

I am a 29 year old mother of 3, with my youngest being 10 weeks old. I have always been athletic. I played softball, basketball, volleyball, and ran track and cross-country in my “younger” days. After my third child in 3 years my body had never been so out of shape.

I was desperate to lose some weight and get my body back but nervous that it was never going to be the same. Amy Van Cleve of AVC Elite Training has not only helped me lose 6 pounds in only two weeks of training, but I’m confident that I will soon be in the best shape of my life.

AVC Elite Training is like no other. You never do the same workout twice, so it’s not boring, and you work muscles that you never knew you had. Amy also shows you proper form and pushes you to your limit.

I have been doing both the Group Training and the Saturday Scrambles. The Saturday Scrambles place a lot of emphasis on proper running form and technique.

I have been a runner for quite some time and have learned much about proper running form with Amy’s instruction and coaching. She explains the “hows and whys” by implementing form drills and giving us individual feedback which has made us all become better runners.

It has changed my running for the better in more ways than one.

If you are serious about getting back into shape I highly recommend AVC Elite Training! Never again will I go back to a gym. Prepare to be addicted!
