Operating as usual
Clients at most any level of fitness can make use of the slideboard here.
UltraSlide slideboards can be used for so much more than traditional sliding exercises! 💪🏼Check out this challenging upper body and core move from A.J. Perez!

“Changed this UltraSlide workout up a little, adding a scissor at a low plank.”
Thanksgiving is upon us again, and the traditional turkey, sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie will be consumed by millions of Americans on Thursday. Oh, and, probably some alcohol to cope with that right- and/or left-wing uncle of yours. Drink responsibly, especially if you're drinking the hard stuff.
Now, I’m not saying to gorge away, but also don’t panic if you have eat an entire turkey leg -- even if that turkey leg is fried and covered in mashed potatoes -- and 13 cans of beer.
The accepted -- if not flawed -- number of excess calories needed to gain a pound of fat is 3,500. That means you’d have to consume that number above your daily caloric needs, which varies by your weight, height, activity level and metabolism.
Yes, you could easily exceed an extra 3,500 calories, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll gain a full pound of body fat. The “3,500” number possibly isn’t even accurate, mainly since it’s derived from studies that show you can lose a pound per week if you consume 500 fewer calories per day. (7X500=3,500). The research on if that number applies is seriously lacking.
Plus it doesn’t take into account an individual’s metabolism and there’s also a limit to the amount of food your stomach enzymes can process before your body, basically, gives up and passes what you digested to you bowels before it’s absorbed.
Now, your scale could show a pound -- or more -- when you step on it the next day. Don’t freak out. It can take your body more than a couple days to pass all the food you eat, including transient water weight.
One way to put those concerns at ease (if you don’t want to practice some self restraint) is to work out before your meal. Or this weekend with one of your FoundFit trainers.
Participants in trainer Cynthia’s class are all smiles after Monday’s 7 pm class. You can reach out to us on here for info on how to become a part of our many group classes each week.
Sometimes trainers get an exercise stuck in their head as A.J. Perez did at the Ashburn FoundFit in recent days. Here’s a few of his clients doing squat jump-back with rows using the rip trainer.

Dan epitomizes what is all about. Last September, Dan weighed 335 pounds. Currently, he's 206. Major congrats to Dan for his nearly 130-pound and his impressive dedication to frequent, demanding – both with Ashburn-based A.J. Perez and on his own – after his weight-loss surgery. We are all proud of you.
Small Group training is structured the same as one on one but is done with 2-4 people.
We may recommend a few one on one sessions to get you comfortable, and then put you into a small group of people with the same goals as you!

It’s officially open. This StrongFirst event for the last several years has been awesome to give a personal challenge for me and many of the people I work with.
I am always looking to help drive some focus in peoples training. It is just like signing up for a 10K run. (Except for strength). It’s just an event we as adults can participate in for personal challenge. It gives a focus to a training program.
Me and my group will participate at the Tysons playground location this year. If you’re interested in meeting me there, just sign up. If you would like to join my training team for the six weeks building up to the event, then shoot me a PM and I will give you all the details.
strongfirst.com Multiple locations worldwide. Register for the Tactical Strength Challenge now for $25 to be a part of this one-of-a-kind event, open to all.
Just read a compelling article on walking for weight loss! (Fat loss). This is nothing new, I recommend this all the time-but what I did like is it gave a very clear goal for those that wear pedometers. Walk at least 10,000 steps with some days pushing 15k.
Lift strength (reps 4-7) 3xweek
It’s a few weeks away! Who’s in? Bring family and friends for a tough work based hour-all levels welcome! Email or PM me!
It’s official, join me- Brian Wright for a different kind of meal prep! Not a 5k in the cold, but 5000lb move in the cold.
If you don’t get my jokes - come up the Thanksgiving Day Burner in Ashburn and I will explain them to you while you lift heavy items!
This is for all levels-bring family and friends.

Really solid work here. Getting back into consistency. The tactical string challenge seems like a far way off, but that just means there's plenty of time to work toward the five wheels!
Great stuff Ryan
Me and the entire team and all your friends at the studio wish Karen Secker the best in her move to FL!
What an outstanding athlete and person and friend!
We will miss you!!!!
Come back and visit!!!
Katy tied her PR after not having dead lifted for over a year. She maintained her strength almost purely with simple and sinister program (1 hand swings)
A testament to consistency and tension! Awesome!
Strong class on Saturday!!!! Who's in for this week or weekend?!
(Summer punch cards available)
Are you missing the basics?
Focus instead on the 6 major movement patterns first in your program.
Hinge: Deadlift, good morning, kettlebell swing, snatch and clean variations
Lunge: Lunge, split squat, step-back lunge, Bulgarian split squat
Push: Bench press, push-up, overhead press, one-arm press
Pull: Pull-up, bent-over row, seated row, one-arm row
Squat: Front squat, goblet squat, Zercher squat, back squat
Carry: Farmer walk, single-arm carry, overhead carry
Analyze your program and ask yourself if these movement patterns are covered. If not, cut out the superfluous exercises and get these into your workout plan.
A simple method I’ve used in the past is to repeat a four-day set:
Heavy lifting day (80-95%)
General conditioning day

Come see what Loudoun's only dedicated Kettlebell studio can do for you.
t-nation.com If you can pass this test, move to heavy barbell squats. If not, you have some work to do first.
For those that are local in Ashburn,
I am running a 7 person Kettlebell specific strength and Metabolic challenge starting 4/17.
Just a few days left! Hurry!
It's a focused six week program complete with nutrition plan, three times per week small group training with the highest ranking strong first kettlebell instructors, and a ton of follow up accountability.
Over the last six months, I have found that six week challenge programs are usually successful due to their short period of intense focus and ability to spring into more successful sustainable programming.
Commit to Monday,Wednesday,Friday evening classes in Ashburn near One Loudoun and see what good Kettlebell training does for your total program results!
PM me for an info appointment. 7 spaces available.
For this challenge-we offer a special intro rate!
