I love this! Our classes are all about practice. Practicing how to move well in our own bodies throughout the day!

"I never went to the gym to work out. I went to learn. I ended up sweaty and tired, so you might say a workout happened, but it was in the process of learning."
–Dr. Ed Thomas

At StrongFirst, we view strength, endurance, power, and other athletic qualities as skills. Accordingly, we approach our training as a “practice,” not a “workout.” It will pay to acquire this mindset from the start.

Core Pelvis Low Back Workshop — Square One Fitness 12/26/2021

Core Pelvis Low Back Workshop — Square One Fitness

Low Back / Core / Hips / Pelvis Workshop registration is live! Very limited space.

If you have ever said:

“I have a weak core”

“My hips are always tight”

“My low back hurts all the time”

“All I did was pick up a paper clip and my back went ‘out’”

“My SI joints are always sore”

“My trainer says I have weak glutes”

Then this workshop is for you!


Core Pelvis Low Back Workshop — Square One Fitness We will cover all these topics, as well as the common myths and misconceptions about what the “core” is, and why folks often have chronic low back pain, tight hips and hamstrings, and “weak” glutes.

Super fun two hour kettlebell workshop yesterday with guest instructor Becca Romans. We learned a ton!


Loving this book! We already do quite a bit of this in our fitness classes but will be incorporating even more over the next few weeks. Our goal is to do all the research for you, and then bring it to our classes. That way you get all the best info without having to do the research yourself!

Hinge, squat, push, pull, and core stabilization. Our classes focus on these five basic movement patterns. Everyone works at THEIR own ability level. It’s fun to watch folks progress as they gain strength and confidence!

Coach Sandra in action! She’s great at getting folks to move in ways they didn’t even know they could! Proper form and instruction is everything!!


Bored with doing mind-numbing exercises on a machine? If you are looking for exercise that is engaging, and actually changes the way your body moves and feels, then you'll love small group fitness at Square One!


Coach Sandra and Doc Emily had a blast this weekend in the Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization two day seminar. We are constantly learning better ways to help YOU move with strength and stability!

Last night's class working on the agility ladder. The agility ladder is a great way to end class. Not only does it work on coordination, but usually results in a few laughs as well!


Meet coach Sandra West! We are so fortunate to have Sandra on board here at Square One Fitness. She's got a sharp eye for helping you with correct form, and is incredibly welcoming and helpful. You can read more about Coach Sandra's background by following this link...https://www.squareonefitnessabq.com/about-1


Excited to be starting certification with Precision Nutrition today. Yes, we had TONS of nutrition in chiropractic school, but helping patients set life-long habits is a whole new skill set. Classes start today, and I should be finished with the program in a few months. Looking forward to sharing more information with you!

If you think of body change as a pyramid, here’s what it should look like.

You'll notice it’s the opposite of what you might expect.

All the “expert stuff” — adjusting macronutrients, advanced nutrition strategies, etc. — is at the top. They’re a “nice to have”.

The base of the pyramid — your foundation — is what surrounds you.

In general, when it comes to engineering healthy eating, here’s the golden rule:
1️⃣ Make healthy behaviors convenient.
2️⃣ Make other behaviors less convenient.

Here are some examples of these rules in action:
~ USE SMALLER PLATES AND CUPS — Most people eat everything on their plate. Use a smaller plate and you end up eating less naturally.

~ AVOID KEEPING FOODS YOU DON'T WANT TO EAT -Why risk the temptation?

~ PARK YOUR CAR FURTHER FROM YOUR DESTINATION - This way, you'll have to walk. Those extra steps add up.

By simply changing your environment in small ways, you can make changes without even thinking about them.

Every class ends with a high-five. Because our students are AH-MAZING!!


Squatting, pushing, stability...just a few of the things that we focus on at Square One!
