Life Time Athletic Summerlin now offers the newest fitness craze sweeping the nation: Alpha Training (Life Time Athletic member Amanda Gross works out).
Developed exclusively by Life Time Athletic for its members, this program maximizes results using functional movements that create hormonal responses to improve body composition and athletic performance.
While Alpha Training is a progressed program created to maximize workouts for all fitness levels, the program’s top performers have the opportunity to compete in the National Alpha Showdown, starting with a regional competition in Scottsdale, Ariz. on Sept. 14. Winners of the various regional competitions will compete center court in the National Alpha Showdown, which will be held on Saturday, Nov. 16, at Life Time Athletic & Tennis at Peach Tree Corner in Norcross, Ga.
Alpha Training consists of three sections: Alpha Try-Outs, Alpha Fundamentals and Alpha Training; and is designed to emphasize strength, power, endurance, speed, agility, coordination, balance and flexibility. Because Alpha Training is constantly changing to challenge its participants, classes are kept to groups of six or less. This personalized setting allows trainers to note areas of strength and weakness, and tailor Alpha Training specifically to each participant’s needs.
Alpha Training is based on a “controlled chaos” format that uses three dimensional motion and primal movement patterns to improve its participants overall fitness levels. Alpha’s one-hour classes are held twice per week at the Summerlin location. Classes break down into three sections: warm-up, which focuses on flexibility and mobility; a 30- 40 minute workout; and a 10-minute cool down. Alpha workouts feature Functional movements like deadlifting, squatting and pressing, along with Olympic weightlifting, sprints and more.
Fitness enthusiasts who have just begun Alpha Training may also participate in the Beta waves at regionals or nationals, which is open to all new and former participants. The top male and female participant at Regionals earns a $500 Merrell gift card, a cash prize, a travel voucher to Atlanta to be crowned the Alpha male and female at the National Alpha Showdown.
