Where you as a member can attend any class you'd like from around the world.
You will get to experience the SKOGG Method, used everyday by hundreds of Portland residents, without having to leave the comforts of your own home, office, training room, gym or wherever you find yourself with a need to sweat.
At the SKOGG Gym, we run a rotation, changing from day to day, consisting of conditioning, strengthening and power development. We do this to avoid over training and injury, and a continued increase in performance. When setting up your own workout schedule, please follow this suggestion.
At SKOGG, we're known for our kettlebell expertise, but that's not to say our fitness scope is limited to one tool in our tool box. We use many different functional applications, and will be introducing them as we go. Each workout that requires additional equipment wil be labeled as such.
A catalog of exercises are available for you to watch, with detailed instruction, to ensure your technique is priority. We care less about how much you move, and more about how you move it.
LENGTH OF WORKOUTS
The workouts run in length from 24 minutes to over an hour, without having to repeat the same workout in a 90 day period.
An instructional workout is in place to teach you the 6 basic fundamental movements. You must view this, work along, and test at the end to advanced to Level 2.
The SKOGG System 5 DVD set is recommended as another resource for technique and mastering the 6 basic moves.
SIZE / TIME / TEMPO
We employ a simple equation called Size/Time/Tempo. Size of kettlebell, Time (length) of the workout, Tempo (pace or cadence) of your rep count. Making adjustments to these variables is an easy way to change the outcome of the workout. You will hear this mentioned often.
A good set of kettlebells are 8kg, 12kg, and 16kg. In SKOGG Gym we call them #1, #2 and #3, and you will hear me refer to them this way in the videos. It's always a good idea to own pairs for double movements.
Virtual SKOGG has a level system starting at Level 1 and progressing to Level 4.
A snatch test is the standard exercise used to advance from level to level.
Our music volume is low, allowing you the option to listen to your own.
