It’s not exercise. It’s training.
Exercise is random. It’s about doing whatever you feel like doing on a given day with no definite purpose other than getting sweaty and getting a “pump”. Training, on the other hand, has a clear goal and a carefully designed program to achieve that goal.The clients will learn how to train themselves. Our goal is to help you build a stronger, more efficient body through a simple, practical and results-driven approach to strength training. Our programs focus on a handful of basic barbell exercises designed to strengthen the entire body through the common movement patterns we use in our everyday lives. When we train, we aim to master these techniques, and then gradually make them harder. Each training session provides a stress to which the body is forced to adapt by growing stronger. Over time, this carefully managed cycle of stress, recovery and adaptation increases the work capacity of the entire body and rewards us with more muscle mass, bone density, less fat, better balance and coordination, and increased stamina and energy. This approach to strength training is fun, safe, challenging and ultimately fulfilling. It works for any person of any age and or experience level and is, without a doubt, the most effective and efficient way to improve the way you look, feel and move. Train hard but also smart.
Patrick uses scientific principles of exercise science, biomechanics, anatomy & physiology and theories of adaptation to ultimately get his clients fitter, faster and stronger.

Here’s what to Expect, regardless of skill level
Prepare to learn! The coach will take you through a personal assessment to gauge where your abilities are. Beginners will always start out slower than someone more experienced. The workout will teach you the basics of strength training and the core movements used to get you stronger and in better shape. The workout will allow you an opportunity to ask questions and understand how the exercises will benefit you. What happens during an Intro Session? The coach will go over personal goals, current workout regimen, previous injuries, the equipment used in the workouts and an overview of what the workouts will be like. The intro session is for the coach to assess certain strengths and weaknesses you may have in terms of mobility, flexibility, strength, posture, and overall athleticism. This will give the coach a starting point to program your future workouts. The first session will teach you the basics of strength training, proper breathing and bracing mechanics, etc.. You will also learn the core strength training movements such as the squat, the hip hinge or deadlift, and the press.
Is Atlas only for athletes?
No! Atlas is for anyone looking to get fitter, stronger and healthier.
Are you the only person training?
Yes, but we also offer small group training, yoga classes, kickboxing classes and MMA classes.
Can I try out a session?
Yes, we offer a free consultation.
Is this for me?
Yes. The needs of elite athletes and beginners differ by degree not kind.
How long is each personal training session?
30 or 60 minutes.
I'm really out of shape. Can I join?
Every exercise that we do in each session, whether it is part of the warm-up or the conditioning, is scaled to each individual. Your coach knows how to gauge each workout and exercise to the experience level of each person. We want everyone to go at their own pace and compete against themselves. We always want you improving, but we will never have you pushing through joint pain or forcing you to keep going when you are so exhausted that your form breaks down. You get better when you perform exercises correctly
I feel like I bulk up REALLY fast and I am scared to lift weights. Will your training make me bulky?
This is a very common fear many women have when they start doing resistance exercise. The truth is, for the vast MAJORITY of women, adding a significant amount of muscle is very difficult. Diet also plays a huge role. In order for most women to get the look they desire, they must gain some muscle to add curves in all the right places, and also lose body fat to show off the muscle they have gained. Most women would get closer to the look they desire if they put on muscle.
It looks like you do a lot of squats. I’ve heard they’re bad for you.
Not only is the squat foundational to athleticism but it is also one of the most functional movement humans can perform. Squatting has developed a reputation of being dangerous because of the bad form and terrible inflexibility and mobility. Properly performed squats and related movements will stabilize the knees, hips and back, not damage them and help prevent injury in the future. Avoiding movements your body was designed to perform is the best way to eventually get injured. The coach spends a great deal of time teaching our members proper form in all movements and constantly monitor performance to ensure safety and the best results.
