CORE VALUES

SUPPORT YOUR FELLOW ATHLETES

  • The SHOP is Community-Driven. We train as individuals, but we workout as a community.
  • Introduce yourself to newcomers and welcome them to the SHOP
  • Encourage everyone before, during, and after workouts
  • Experienced SHOP athletes help set the example for our new athletes. You can always learn something new at the whiteboard, your techniques can always be improved, and a positive attitude is contagious (See “Be Coachable…”)

BE COACHABLE & HAVE A GROWTH MINDSET

  • Coachability means that you are receptive to feedback, you believe that you can always improve, and that you are ready, willing, and able to put in the work
  • Aim for progress, not perfection
  • Rather than saying “I’m just not good at XYZ,” you would say “I need to practice XYZ more!”

EVERY WORKOUT STARTS WITH A THOROUGH WARMUP

  • It is important, for your own safety, to properly and thoroughly warmup prior to the day’s strength or conditioning work
  • If life gets in the way and you’re running a few minutes late, that’s OK! Just show up. But you start with a complete warmup

IMPORTANCE OF MOVEMENT QUALITY

  • Mechanics → Consistency → Intensity
  • Using the proper variation of a movement not only allows you to train as safely as possible, but also maximizes your performance and results
  • Using too much weight or using a variation of a movement that is too advanced will compromise your form. And compromised form will lead to injury

COMMUNICATION OF INJURIES

  • Communicate any/all injuries with your coach
  • An injury shouldn’t stop you from training, but it does require you to work with the coaches to modify appropriately
  • It is essential for your safety and recovery to avoid painful movements and allow the healing process to occur (See “Trust the Process”). Scaling and/or modifying a workout is not only optimal for your recovery, but also for your results
  • While our coaches do an excellent job with movement modifications, we are not medical practitioners. If your pain/injury persists, please see a doctor or physical therapist for a proper evaluation

TRUST THE PROCESS

  • PR’s don’t happen every day, and sustainable results won’t happen overnight
  • Building strength and conditioning takes consistent effort over a long period of time
  • Enjoy the journey rather than focusing on the destination
  • Our coaches are well trained, highly experienced, and they do an outstanding job. It is their job to guide you through the training process
