Wheelhouse Academy was born out of the notion that learning the right way to work out is just as important as the workout itself.

That’s where the idea of the Wheelhouse “Academy” comes in. As a member, you will not only learn workout routines, you Luan Nguyen is a professional trainer that has consulted with more than 50 gyms across the country. He has seen what they do right, and corrected what they do wrong. And now he’s taking the best of those practices and putting them to work at Wheelhouse Academy. David Morris brings

Hello Parents,

The inaugural Summer Strong Lifting Camp will be taking place in just two weeks,
kicking off on June 1st. We will run camp on Tuesdays and Thursdays from
930am -11am each day, for 3 weeks, six total classes.

Tues - June 1st, Thurs - June 3rd
Tues - June 8th, Thurs - June 10th
Tues - June 15th, Thurs - June 17th

Camp will be led by myself with the assistance of two other coaches each day.

We have built a daily 90 min curriculum that will introduce and reinforce concepts of
strength training and proper lifting form of the foundational lifts (squat, bench, deadlifts, press) and valuable drills and progressions of the dynamic lifts (clean variations, push press, jerk).

The curriculum will also drill home:
-Safety in Lifting and Spotting
-Gym Etiquette (Do's and Don'ts)
-Being Better Lifting Partners / Teammates While Training
-Intentional Warm Ups
-Recovery / Self Maintenance and Care
-Ideal Nutrition for Growth and Performance

Summer Strong's aim is to leave them feeling incredibly confident with the barbell (one
of the most intimidating tools in the gym but also the most impactful) and provide a clear
vision in their future of strength training.

This camp is open to all families but WH parents will get first priority as we intend to serve
only a small group this time. (Middle School Age, 11-15yr)

Cost - $349
(Cost for Wheelhouse Parents is $249)
Each additional - $149

To Reserve your spot(s) Please reply to this post and email: [email protected] with the following info.
Childs Name
Childs DOB
Childs Preferred Sport(s)

Finally, please share this post with any parent friends who would be interested in our Lifting Camp. We are confident that this investment will literally change the trajectory of their future
in lifting, sports and athletics.

We want to hear from you! What are your thoughts on EP 1? Listen now on Spotify.


S U M M E R • S T R O N G

Parents, let’s chat! We would love your insight on a summer program that we want to launch for your middle schooler (11-14yrs).

The focus of Summer Strong is to provide a ~90 min experience, twice a week, where we dive into lifting fundamentals, technique and proper progressions.

We would educated them on
-Training Room Etiquette (the dos and donts)
-Proper Warm Ups and dynamic progressions
-Specific drills to improve each segments of their core lifts
-How to properly spot and safely bail on their lifts.
-How to be a Great training teammate / lifting partner
-The Basics of Nutrition
-Recovery and Self Care / Maintenance
-The Primary Lifts that will accelerate their growth in their sport: Variations of the Back Squat, Deadlift, Bench Press, Press and Power Cleans

Summer Strong will be open to all kids and we would limit our first graduating class to a small batch of 12-15 kids.

We feel this will be an incredibly valuable experience and cannot wait to elevate their growth and confidence in the training room and all things lifting.

Parents, please reply with your thoughts.
When are good days and times for a camp ?
Is 90 mins a good time frame?
3-4 weeks?
Co-Ed or should we separate the boys and girls?

FLEX ED., Thursday Nights

The team and I have put our heads together to roll out a new class that we are calling "Flex Ed." (Thank You Ashley Shaw for the clever name)

Flex Ed will be held on Thursday Nights, at 630pm and is kicking off this Thursday the 3rd. Our goal is to:

-Share information and put you through stretch positions and range of motion challenges.

-Teach you how to provide self massage and therapy care to alleviate tight muscles, soreness and knots.

-Teach proper use of tools such as: the lacrosse ball, the foam roller, and bands so you can formulate a game plan to carry out at home or during open gym times.

Ultimately we want to help connect the dots of specific methods/techniques that help with certain positions that can often be troublesome for people. (Think: Bottom of a squat, Overhead positions, front rack position and even kipping positions. ) Each class will focus on a specific joint and/or muscle group that we aim to improve in mobility and flexibility.

As always, we welcome any feedback and questions about this class. We hope to see you guys out for Flex Ed.

Thank You For The Training


Looking back on this crazy year, the team and I are simply humbled by the support, love and trust from this community.

There is no crystal ball to predict the future but we can simply take things one day at a time. We will be present and be there to listen and to guide.

💙 And for this opportunity, we are incredibly Thankful. 🙏🏻

Thank You For The Training
Thank You For Simply Being You
