HOW WILL P360 DIFFER FROM YOUR CURRENT GYM?

Whether you’re coming from a do-it-yourself globo gym, box or boot camp, Performance360 is guaranteed to differ in many ways.

1. YOUR COACHING WILL GET AN UPGRADE

We can’t tell you how many members we get from other gyms and boxes who try us skeptically, only to stay once they see the Performance360 difference in attention to knowledge and coaching.

At a lot of gyms, the coach introduces the workout and then stands around for forty minutes while you bust your ass.

Not at Performance360. We’re in the trenches with you.

Every single coach on staff is a current or former competitive athlete, and is trained and certified USA Olympic Weightlifting coach.

We have current Team USA members, IPL Elite RAW powerlifters and jiu jitsu competitors on staff, as well as former body builders, Major League Baseball players, and collegiate rowers, volleyball, baseball and swim athletes.

2. WE CUSTOMIZE

Do you like to follow a program but also have some options to deviate to better hit your goals?

Good. It means you’re an independent thinker, yet also understand you may need some guidance to get where you want to go.

We have seven different classes that focus on a unique combination of athletic and physique goals, and help build a progressive, flexible training road map for every member that we have.

Nothing about your Performance360 training experience will be one-size-fits-all.

3. WE CAN HELP WITH PHYSIQUE GOALS

Performance and physique do not need to be mutually exclusive.

Just because you want to train like an athlete doesn’t mean you can’t also want to look damn good naked, and if aesthetics are an important part of your goals, we don’t think you should feel weird for that.

4. ALL 3 MOVEMENT PLANES

Squats, deadlifts, cleans, jerks and snatches are in “saggital” plane of movement, which is extension and flexion. Many athletes very much excel in the saggital plane.

However, when it’s all you do, you greatly limit your athleticism because you’re only accessing one plane of human movement.

“I’ve been to a lot of gyms. As a former NCAA athlete, not one has challenged or inspired me in the right ways. I always reached my peak at each place (or so they said). P360 has me waking up stoked to see how my ass is going to be kicked each day. What I have left to learn here at P360 is never-ending.” – Vivianna Smith, P360 Athlete

To perform optimally as an athlete, we must also get work in the “transverse” plane (rotation) and the “frontal” planes (adduction, abduction).

This results in a better athlete.

Example: The squat is saggital, so it primarly works the glute maximus.

Why This is Limited: It ignores the important glute medius and minimus, which will results in an unstable spine and hips, and knees that invert on the squat. Not mention and a disproportionate development of the butt.

How We Address That: Lateral movements that target the glute medius, for all around balance, strength and good squat habits.

5. WE KNOW NUTRITIONAL SCIENCE

We have multiple certified nutrition coaches, with education that includes world-renown Dr. John Berardi’s Precision Nutrition System and three time National Champion, IFBB Pro Jeff Willet.

We can help with muscle gain, fat loss and body re-composition for both men and women.

6. WE DON’T BUY INTO “NO PAIN, NO GAIN”

This is the worst possible advice any trainer or facility could give. If something hurts, something is wrong and you need to fix it locally before it affects you globally.

We have staff trained in Functional Movement Screen (FMS), ERY-T 200, 100HR Happy Back and clinical physical therapy and all of our coaches are highly trained in anatomy, movement modification, progression and regression.

We show you how to move around it while still challenging yourself.

8. YOU’LL BURN MORE FAT

Case Study: Skye Halliday

Proper training is like pairing the right wine with the right steak. Sure, you can throw any two together and get full and drunk.

Or, you can be a bit more sophisticated in your style and do things a bit more scientifically to produce a better outcome.

Because of our varied approach and emphasis on fuel systems, our combo of diverse strength work paired with extremely high intensity circuits and low intensity, higher volume circuits results in an environment where your body that has more lean body mass (which means you burn more calories) and is constantly in a state of caloric burning.

We are firm believers in bench marking and progress tracking, everything we do is built and tested for you to be accountable to your own progress.

10. WE TAKE KETTLEBELLS SERIOUSLY, COMRADE

Kettlebells are a distant afterthought a lot of other gyms, where the technique matches up with the themes of the workout;  speed at all costs.

The result is often a terrible kettlebell product given to members.

The result is a stronger, more developed athlete.

11. FOCUSING ON THE COMPLETE ATHLETE

Performance360 was founded on the “Nine Parameters of Athleticism”, set forth by the National Strength and Conditioning Association.

QYTI0640

 

  • Maximum Muscular Strength (Low Speed Strength): i.e., 1R power lift

  • Maximum Muscular Power (High Speed Strength): i.e., 1R Olympic lift, max box jump

  • Anaerobic Capacity: i.e., 30 – 90 seconds of all out IWT time.

  • Local Muscular Endurance: i.e., 100 swings for time, max strict pull-ups

  • Aerobic Capacity: i.e., timed mile run, 800m sprint, 10 minute row

  • Agility: i.e., lateral movement, footwork on the speed ladder and hurdles

  • Speed: i.e., sprinting

  • Mobility: i.e., can you overhead squat? If not, why and let’s fix it.

  • Balance and Stability: i.e., can you close your eyes and perform body weight single-leg RDL?

At Performance360, we train all nine parameters with relative equal frequency and we develop a highly functional, all purpose athlete.

12. A MORE DIVERSIFIED TRAINING PORTFOLIO

P360 programming is where routine marries variation.

Aside from the Big 5 Barbell Movements, we have an expansive library of movements that we incorporate into our training, taking the term constantly varied to a slightly different meaning.

The result is that your body gets stronger under the major strength lifts, but is also in a constant state of adaptation.

13. THE ART OF GIVING A DAMN

Performance360 is the highest rated independent gym in Pacific Beach, earning more 5-star customer reviews than any other local gym.

At least once a day we hear from a converted new member about how impressed they are with our coaches and instruction.

We cannot speak to what drives other gyms to succeed, but for us, it’s that we simply give a damn.

We care about your results. We care about your safety. We care about you.

We’ll learn your name, ask you questions and help you with your goals in ways you likely have never been exposed to.
