Purchase of the BRUTEcamp classes includes daily nutritional coaching and fitness profile updates every 6 weeks. What makes our BRUTEcamp so special? The Workouts Our BRUTEcamp doesn’t just focus on strength training. It doesn't just focus on cardio. And it doesn't just focus on flexibility. We know that you want to "get toned", which requires building muscle, so you will see plenty of exercises throughout the program that will help build lean muscle. Oh, but you don't want to "get bulky" though right? Getting "bulky" doesn't happen by accident. You have to intentionally want to get massive muscles (especially as a female). So it's a good thing our BRUTEcamp is specifically designed to help you reach your individual fitness goals. If building big muscles is not on your list of goals, then there isn't really anything to worry about (however, if it is one of your goals then we can DEFINITELY accommodate that as well). We also know that you want to "lose weight", (but in fact what you REALLY want is to lose FAT, which requires a caloric deficit), so you will see plenty of cardio and HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) to increase calories burned throughout each workout. We believe that exercise shouldn't focus solely on one aspect of fitness. So there will always be multiple elements of muscular strength/endurance/power, cardiorespiratory fitness, agility, flexibility, coordination, balance, and reaction time in every workout. This allows us to help you "lose weight", & "tone up", but also to get stronger, increase mobility, reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, increase bone mineral density... The benefits of regular physical activity and exercise are endless! And if that isn't enough, the workout structure changes every day from circuit training, to HIIT, to CrossFit-style training, to Tabatas, to obstacle course training, to martial arts/boxing. This is exactly the change that keeps people excited and motivated to come back and push themselves every day! When it comes to our BRUTEcamp: You can go at your own pace because every exercise can be modified to fit your individual needs! So whether you are just starting out or you are an elite athlete each workout can be tailored to fit your individual needs. We take pride in creating workouts that are designed to be challenging while still accommodating all fitness levels. The Contests It’s easy to lose motivation after a few weeks of eating veggies and drinking water. That’s why we have contests EVERY 6 WEEKS. Every 6 weeks you get a chance to win prizes just by doing your best with nutrition and exercises. This keeps our BRUTEcampers motivated and ensures success. Moreover, we keep the most accurate records around to make sure that you know exactly how your body is changing. Nutrition This program is great and the workouts are fun, but NOTHING will replace great nutrition habits. That’s why we don’t leave you to fend for yourself. Our fitness records update your required calories and we keep each other accountable by connecting you to your trainer using the MyFitnessPal app; a food journaling application that allows us to see how you’re eating in real time. The PEOPLE Brute Strength & Conditioning is not just a gym, it’s a community! We are a community of supportive men and women who motivate each other. We are everyday people, mothers, fathers, grandmothers, grandfathers, sons, daughters, teachers, students, athletes and professionals who want to become stronger. Besides, people that are willing to wake up early in the mornings are a rare breed, so we’ve got to stick together! Occasionally we’ll break away from the boot camp to enjoy an obstacle course run, a hike, a yoga class, or a self-defense class. In case you haven't caught on yet... we like to mix it up! Whether you’re here for a month, a year, or a decade our goal is to: 1) Help you understand a better way to work out 2) Build relationships that will help you with your fitness journey, where ever you go! So if you're ready to start your fitness journey contact us today!

5 reasons you want your kid to be a multi-sport athlete

We are a strength & conditioning facility that is owned & operated by a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist who also happened to be a multi-sport athlete growing up. This is a big part of our training philosophy! We firmly believe that early specialization in youth sports only hinders the sport (every sport) in the long run.
If your child plays a sport, we strongly encourage you to allow them to take up another sport (or a few). Let them find what they're good at, what they're not as good at, what they love playing, what they don't care to pursue... all the while encouraging them every step of the way! This approach will not only make them more well rounded athletes but more well rounded young men & women!
If your child is an athlete or you know an athlete that could benefit from a training program designed & implemented by a certified professional please give is a call at 505.738.3588 or shoot us an email at [email protected] we would love to help! Veteran sports parent Michelle Smith offers up some practical knowledge about the pitfalls of becoming a single-sport athlete too soon.

I've shared this one before but it is such a good message!

Reposting by request - longer than most of our other posts but a special message! Written by Coach Chris Sperry

Twenty years ago, in Nashville, Tennessee, during the first week of January, 1996, more than 4,000 baseball coaches descended upon the Opryland Hotel for the 52nd annual ABCA's convention.

While I waited in line to register with the hotel staff, I heard other more veteran coaches rumbling about the lineup of speakers scheduled to present during the weekend. One name kept resurfacing, always with the same sentiment — “John Scolinos is here? Oh, man, worth every penny of my airfare.”

Who is John Scolinos, I wondered. No matter; I was just happy to be there.

In 1996, Coach Scolinos was 78 years old and five years retired from a college coaching career that began in 1948. He shuffled to the stage to an impressive standing ovation, wearing dark polyester pants, a light blue shirt, and a string around his neck from which home plate hung — a full-sized, stark-white home plate.

Seriously, I wondered, who is this guy?

After speaking for twenty-five minutes, not once mentioning the prop hanging around his neck, Coach Scolinos appeared to notice the snickering among some of the coaches. Even those who knew Coach Scolinos had to wonder exactly where he was going with this, or if he had simply forgotten about home plate since he’d gotten on stage. Then, finally …

“You’re probably all wondering why I’m wearing home plate around my neck,” he said, his voice growing irascible. I laughed along with the others, acknowledging the possibility. “I may be old, but I’m not crazy. The reason I stand before you today is to share with you baseball people what I’ve learned in my life, what I’ve learned about home plate in my 78 years.”

Several hands went up when Scolinos asked how many Little League coaches were in the room. “Do you know how wide home plate is in Little League?”

After a pause, someone offered, “Seventeen inches?”, more of a question than answer.

“That’s right,” he said. “How about in Babe Ruth’s day? Any Babe Ruth coaches in the house?” Another long pause.

“Seventeen inches?” a guess from another reluctant coach.

“That’s right,” said Scolinos. “Now, how many high school coaches do we have in the room?” Hundreds of hands shot up, as the pattern began to appear. “How wide is home plate in high school baseball?”

“Seventeen inches,” they said, sounding more confident.

“You’re right!” Scolinos barked. “And you college coaches, how wide is home plate in college?”

“Seventeen inches!” we said, in unison.

“Any Minor League coaches here? How wide is home plate in pro ball?”............“Seventeen inches!”

“RIGHT! And in the Major Leagues, how wide home plate is in the Major Leagues?

“Seventeen inches!”

“SEV-EN-TEEN INCHES!” he confirmed, his voice bellowing off the walls. “And what do they do with a Big League pitcher who can’t throw the ball over seventeen inches?” Pause. “They send him to Pocatello !” he hollered, drawing raucous laughter. “What they don’t do is this: they don’t say, ‘Ah, that’s okay, Jimmy. If you can’t hit a seventeen-inch target? We’ll make it eighteen inches or nineteen inches. We’ll make it twenty inches so you have a better chance of hitting it. If you can’t hit that, let us know so we can make it wider still, say twenty-five inches.'”

Pause. “Coaches… what do we do when your best player shows up late to practice? or when our team rules forbid facial hair and a guy shows up unshaven? What if he gets caught drinking? Do we hold him accountable? Or do we change the rules to fit him? Do we widen home plate? "

The chuckles gradually faded as four thousand coaches grew quiet, the fog lifting as the old coach’s message began to unfold. He turned the plate toward himself and, using a Sharpie, began to draw something. When he turned it toward the crowd, point up, a house was revealed, complete with a freshly drawn door and two windows. “This is the problem in our homes today. With our marriages, with the way we parent our kids. With our discipline.

We don’t teach accountability to our kids, and there is no consequence for failing to meet standards. We just widen the plate!”

Pause. Then, to the point at the top of the house he added a small American flag. “This is the problem in our schools today. The quality of our education is going downhill fast and teachers have been stripped of the tools they need to be successful, and to educate and discipline our young people. We are allowing others to widen home plate! Where is that getting us?”

Silence. He replaced the flag with a Cross. “And this is the problem in the Church, where powerful people in positions of authority have taken advantage of young children, only to have such an atrocity swept under the rug for years. Our church leaders are widening home plate for themselves! And we allow it.”

“And the same is true with our government. Our so-called representatives make rules for us that don’t apply to themselves. They take bribes from lobbyists and foreign countries. They no longer serve us. And we allow them to widen home plate! We see our country falling into a dark abyss while we just watch.”

I was amazed. At a baseball convention where I expected to learn something about curve balls and bunting and how to run better practices, I had learned something far more valuable.

From an old man with home plate strung around his neck, I had learned something about life, about myself, about my own weaknesses and about my responsibilities as a leader. I had to hold myself and others accountable to that which I knew to be right, lest our families, our faith, and our society continue down an undesirable path.

“If I am lucky,” Coach Scolinos concluded, “you will remember one thing from this old coach today. It is this: "If we fail to hold ourselves to a higher standard, a standard of what we know to be right; if we fail to hold our spouses and our children to the same standards, if we are unwilling or unable to provide a consequence when they do not meet the standard; and if our schools & churches & our government fail to hold themselves accountable to those they serve, there is but one thing to look forward to …”

With that, he held home plate in front of his chest, turned it around, and revealed its dark black backside, “…We have dark days ahead!.”

Note: Coach Scolinos died in 2009 at the age of 91, but not before touching the lives of hundreds of players and coaches, including mine. Meeting him at my first ABCA convention kept me returning year after year, looking for similar wisdom and inspiration from other coaches. He is the best clinic speaker the ABCA has ever known because he was so much more than a baseball coach. His message was clear: “Coaches, keep your players—no matter how good they are—your own children, your churches, your government, and most of all, keep yourself at seventeen inches."

And this my friends is what our country has become and what is wrong with it today, and now go out there and fix it!

"Don't widen the plate."

ANY physical activity is better than NO physical activity!
This longitudinal study by the American College of Sports Medicine shows that it doesn't really matter when you fit in your recommended weekly physical activity just as long as you fit it in!

"Weekend warriors experienced similar mortality rate reductions as participants who engaged in activity more frequently, when both groups had the same total amount of MVPA (moderate-to-vigorous physical activity)."

The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) recommends at least 150 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous exercise per week-- so get it in when you can! It'll help you live longer!

Physical Activity Patterns and Mortality: Are there benefits for weekend warriors? Recent study published in MSSE says that physical activity is associated with decreased mortality rate, even among those who are active only 1 or 2 days per week.

This is SO awesome! I love seeing stuff like this! You are never too old to start exercising!
In the video Dr. Catherine Walter mentions that after 40 our muscles start to deteriorate & that walking, swimming or cycling won't help prevent further deterioration, only resistance training can do that. This is most definitely true but I would just like to add that it is not just your muscles that break down. Your bones & joints begin to deteriorate as well (osteoporosis, osteopenia, osteoarthritis...). Again, only resistance training exercises can help prevent (slow) this process. If you have never lifted, there is no better time to start than RIGHT NOW! Also, if you're ready to get started I might know a Strength Coach that can help you 😉 (Call me!)
Have a great day friends!

Talk about a powerful woman! 💪💪

🚫 P, S,

__________ affects athletic performance more than any other nutrient

Yay! Great guessing everyone!

WATER is without a doubt THE most essential nutrient our bodies need (whether you are an athlete or not)! And since our bodies do not produce water in the vast quantities required to carry out many bodily functions & metabolic processes, we must obtain the majority of our water from outside sources such as food & drinks. So remember to hydrate! For the general population this simply means drink when you are thirsty! Simple enough right?! Athletes, however, require a little more conscious effort to maintain hydration. This can be as simple as a glass of water before, during & after exercise/competition (more may be required depending on the duration of exercise/competition) . If profuse sweating (water loss) occurs then your rehydration strategy should include some sort of electrolytes to replenish the salts lost from sweat.
Stay hydrated my friends!

Happy Friday friends!
