TO STAY PAINLESS, TO HAVE FUN WHILE TRAINING, TO BUILD UP STRUCTURES IN THE BODY, TO USE NATURAL MOVEMENT PATTERNS, TO CONSTANTLY LEARN NEW THINGS AND TO IMPROVE, THAT IS STRONGFIT.

"Our body is built to function painlessly," says Gregor Rath, who as a coach has been getting people moving for years with different concepts. He had to experience that despite sport and regular exercise, many people have pain, so they often drop out, even end their (hobby) sports career. Then Rath discovered StrongFit in the USA and brought it to Europe. This is not a sport with competitions, rules and one-sided stress, but new, holistic training principles. Developed by former competitive athlete Julien Pineau, StrongFit is aimed primarily at recreational athletes.

STRONG FROM INSIDE OUT
THE POWER FROM THE MIDDLE

"I want to restore your body, balance it, help you overcome plateaus." This is what Gregor Rath sees as his task when people interested in StrongFit come to Grex Gym in Klosterneuburg near Vienna. Often it is people who have trained for years without success or progress in various sports, but have injuries or permanent pain due to one-sided methods or overstrain. Nothing is given to them at StrongFit either.

If asked about this method Rath simply says: “It’s not magic, it’s hard work.” After a Coach analysed your movement pattern and you went through personal coaching, group classes can be joined, in which you can expand your abilities and continue to get stronger and build up your base through natural movements.

Holistic training doesn’t necessarily have to be complicated. Certainly we have weights, barbells, kettlebells, medicine balls or rowing machines but also we train with sandbags, atlas stones, heavy iron sledges, ropes or truck tires. Isometric muscle contraction is for example the key to a strong core and carrying a heavy sandbag creates exactly that. Following the Strongfit principles simply teaches your body to use what it is built to use and what it already knows best. Carry one heavy weighted object, such as a bag, from one point to another, or pushing the sled over different natures and textures of floorground, these kinds of movements do not require hourlong warm ups. Your body just moves naturally and simply the way it is supposed to. Sounds as easy as it can get, however, it doesn’t mean it’s not intense training. Or as coach Gregor Rath puts it:” That’s a pump like never perceived before!“

EQUALISE DEFICIENCIES

One of the StrongFit principles is that imbalances and deficits should be specifically balanced out during training. In contrast to most sports, StrongFit helps you activating your connected muscle chains instead of only stimulating one or few muscles at once. Nonetheless, the major part of training via the Strongfit principles is to try new things, challenge your muscles and maybe even sometimes fail in order to get new insights or learn a new way of approaching exercising.

“First and foremost, we as human beings, need to understand that muscles interact with each other in order to perform”, says Gregor Rath, who has been the first StrongFit certified coach worldwide. His Grex Gym in Klosterneuburg has been the first StrongFit certified gym ever. Coaching is for him a craft, which must be learned. Physical knowledge is as important as empathy and motivational talent. But StrongFit-Coaching also means a new culture of training: questioning things, changing them if necessary, breaking up old patterns. As a coach you should not only coach professional athletes, "but rather those 99 percent of humans who want everyday fitness“.

Staying pain free, having fun while training, building up structures in the body, using natural movement patterns, constantly learning new things and getting better and better, that is StrongFit. Now also in Austria.
