How YOU you train can impact the result of training when using "no equipment" approach to training


In this current time of social distancing, it's on us to empower ourselves to take control of our own fitness and training needs.  I'm the first person to stand up and admit my love for training tools and how the right ones can do so much to enhance performance training.  But now at a time when health clubs and fitness centers have to close their doors, we have to use alternative methods to get performance training and fitness results.

Use your Body

Your body can be used for a host of different training options such as:

  • Push ups
  • Air Squats
  • Sit ups
  • Planks
.....and more!  

You can spice up training sessions in different ways to elicit different affects.  Here are some ways that by simply adding small tweeks you can create different types of workouts:

Combining exercises together in a back to back format:

Sample: Perform a set of Push Ups for 10 reps, and immediately stand up and perform a set of Air Squats for 25 Reps. Recover and then repeat

Performing sets of exercises based on time, instead of reps:

Sample: Set a timer at 30 seconds. Perform as many Push Ups as you can for 30 seconds; pause 30 seconds to recover and then repeat performing Push ups for another 30 seconds. 

Doing a cardio action between sets of exercises

Sample: Perform a set of Air Squats for 25 reps, then immediately fire into 20 seconds of Burpees. Recover for 45-90 seconds and repeat the 25 Air Squat reps, followed by 20 seconds of Burpees.

There are tons and tons of options available for "out of the gym no-tool training" where just switching up HOW you do the training impacts the intensity of the training session.

Recovery is as important as Training



Recovery from training and competition is just as important as training and competition. We often view recovery as secondary, more of a relaxing state.

Truth is that recovery is more about regeneration and repair to restore the body (and mind!) to get back to an optimal state.

The NormaTec Recovery unit is a great way to recover physically. The compression based unit is worn on the legs and helps to actively increase blood flow to areas throughout your legs, aiding in the recovery process. This gives the user “fresh” legs, and the feeling of regeneration.

NormaTec is featured in our Recovery Lounge at our training facility, as well as other recovery modalities. 

Create your own recovery routine to go along with your training and performance regimen!

Whoop: the answer to tracking recovery



I love training tech, so for Christmas I got a Whoop Band to track my daily physical recovery. Whoop specializes in tracking strain, sleep and recovery with a host of metrics so that you can get the most out of performance training and gives you the ability to optimize recovery.



Looking forward to working with Whoop Band to use this technology with Alpha Human Performance!





ALPHA Human Performance training facility coming soon!





We are proud to announce the opening of the Alpha Human Performance Training Facility this Spring! The facility will house our “Human Performance Ideology” which includes:

  • RECOVERY 
look for more details posted regularly on our Instagram page!

Every rep matters: especially when you track the intensity of each lift!



The Push tracker monitors are great for tracking velocity and power during lifting sessions. Each rep is tracked to give you insight on the intensity of the movement, rather than just moving the bar to move it. This helps athletes to move and work with mindful attention to HOW they are moving.

Every rep matters.
