How to Land Properly
“I’m learning to fly, but I ain’t got wings
Coming down, is the hardest thing.”
-Tom Petty

Not only is that my favorite Tom Petty song, but it doubles as a nice metaphor for leaving our feet in fitness, because coming down really is the hardest thing in the world of jumping. A lot of […]

Eat to Train, Don’t Train to Eat

Eat to Train, Don’t Train to Eat
At Performance360, we are a place of non-dogmatic practice. We have many members and coaches who follow a macro-based approach, we have many who follow a Paleo approach. We have vegans, vegetarians, and everything in between. While we do have strong beliefs over what constitutes proper nutrition for the […]

The Dangers of Dogma: The Overhead Swing

By |October 13th, 2017|All Articles, Coach Dave Thomas, Coaching Staff Articles, Home Page, Kettlebells, Mobility, Overall Wellness, The Movement Fix, Training|0 Comments

The Dangers of Dogma: The Overhead Swing
The danger of a purist mindset is that you run the risk of letting dogma disrupt potential. Turkish Get-Ups are NOT for conditioning. The kettlebell is NOT for swinging overhead. James Van Der Beek can NOT be a lead role. Why? Says who? Every single circle has their own […]

How Often Should You Train?

By |October 10th, 2017|All Articles, Coach Dave Thomas, Home Page, Overall Wellness, Training|0 Comments

How Often Should You Train?
This is among the most common questions we receive from new members, especially those surprised to hear that we usually don’t recommend an unlimited membership off the bat, and that for most people we typically suggest four days per week. As your adaptation to training increases, it can handle more rigors […]

Balancing “Go” with Enough “Slow”

By |October 2nd, 2017|All Articles, Coach Andy Mauser, Coaching Staff Articles, Home Page, Mobility, Overall Wellness, Tips for Beginners|0 Comments

Balancing “Go” with Enough “Slow”
The business of “Go”. It’s what we do. We’re always going. Same concept in the gym. We go to the gym to lift weights. We go to get stronger, to get faster, the list goes on. That being said, there’s consequence for too much go, and not enough slow. Being able […]

What is Fitness?

By |September 25th, 2017|All Articles, Coach Dave Thomas, FCC, Home Page, Overall Wellness, Training|0 Comments

What is Fitness?
There is perhaps not a more subjective term in exercise than “fitness.” The word is going to evoke vastly different meanings for every individual applying it. For some, it may be the specialist version of fitness. Running thirty miles a week, focused on 1 – 5 rep lifts for strength, yoga, or some […]

Micro vs. Macro Balance

By |September 20th, 2017|All Articles, Coach Dave Thomas, FCC, Home Page, Overall Wellness, Training|0 Comments

Micro vs. Macro Balance
Training is a stressor. Whether or not we turn training into a eustress (positive stress) that creates favorable adaptation or a distress (negative stress) that creates destruction depends entirely on frequency and intensity dosing. It’s why you can’t flatten yourself everyday and expect to keep moving forward. Programs that yield strength and performance […]

The Business of You

By |September 18th, 2017|All Articles, Coach Chris Hill, Coaching Staff Articles, Home Page, Overall Wellness, Training|0 Comments

The Business of You
Success requires conscious planning or an inordinate amount of luck. There are so many statistics, clichés, and mottos out there echoing this sentiment that I don’t really feel the need to kill our vibe by quoting or siting any of them, because I doubt that anyone reading a gym’s blog hasn’t heard […]

They’re both completely free to members by the way, and benefit you greatly in many ways both physically and mentally. Just like the Daily Challenge or whatever your […]

Consistent Balance > Consistency

By |August 24th, 2017|All Articles, Coach Brenna Bandy, Coaching Staff Articles, Home Page, Overall Wellness|0 Comments

Consistent Balance > Consistency
Some would say that consistency is the key to long term success. I’m gonna say no to that – it’s just not that simple. You can show up to the gym every day and run yourself into the ground. You can regularly slam chicken and veggies and one day wake up and […]
