Our certified coaches want to improve your muscle conditioning routine so you can hit your goals faster, challenge yourself in new ways, and experience better results than ever before.
Because technique is essential to getting the most out of strength training, we spend time carefully practicing and discussing the details that can dramatically improve the way you lift, pull, and reach, and power through each repetition.
Our DC strength training exercises use resistance to:
- Improve coordination
- Build raw strength

Frequently Asked Strength Training Questions in DC
How Do I Start Strength Training?
Everyone considering strength training is coming in from a unique place, so someone with a little more experience might quickly jump in, while someone newer may need more practice with the basics and developing good form.
Having good form cannot be stressed enough. It is the very foundation of strength training and will help you develop muscle evenly, avoid injury, and progress faster.
How Many Calories Does Strength Training Burn?
Your body weight is going to be a significant factor in how many calories you burn during strength training. One common estimate is that for a 45-minute session, you will burn anywhere from 100 - 600 calories. As you can see, that is a huge variance, so you’ll benefit from a professional to guide you with your goals who can get to know you personally.
How Does Strength Training Improve Body Composition?
Strength training builds muscle and burns fat. You have probably heard
that muscle weighs more than fat, and that pound of muscle is smaller
than a pound of fat. This is true, which means someone can appear slimmer
without losing weight by replacing fat with muscle.
