YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

What happens if I miss one day of training?

The coach can provide you the training plan for that specific session so that (if you wish) you can train at your own time.

Will strength training make me tight?

NO, and we are glad you ask this question! Welcome to your first myth-breaker lesson. Strength training will make you strong, and if the exercises are performed through full range and with good technique, you will gain mobility (active flexibility) and control at those longer and shorter muscle lengths.

What happens if I only want to join one training modality (a.k.a gym or pool)?

That's perfectly fine! Send us an email at info@thesurfpentagon.com and we'll set you up with a discount code.

What does a normal training week look like?

Gym sessions will be delivered on Mondays and Fridays, from 12:00 - 13:15. Pool session will be delivered every Wednesday from 12:00 - 13:15.
