Cross Training XT1


This class is taught by:

Brendan McCarthy

Brendan grew up in Nanaimo playing baseball with the Nanaimo Pirates throughout high school, while also playing basketball and rugby for his high school teams. In his final year of high school, he received the Nanaimo Junior Male Athlete Award for his achievements in both baseball and basketball.

Brendan accepted a scholarship to play college baseball in Texas, where he played outfield for a nationally ranked team at Lubbock Christian University.

After his four years of schooling and baseball, he graduated Cum Laude from Lubbock Christian University with a Bachelors of Science in Exercise and Health Promotions. Brendan's future goals are to complete his masters degree in Physiotherapy. He has also completed his Certified Strength and Conditioning Certification.

Brendan is very excited and grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the team at Island Optimal, and he looks forward to gaining more experience in a clinical environment to pursue his goal of becoming a Physiotherapist.

This cross training class offers the opportunity to train specific muscle groups to ensure optimal strength and health goals are achieved. Through a circuit of resistance and strength training exercises, an increased heart rate is also maintained to maximizes the opportunity for cardiovascular health as well as an increased muscular metabolism for increased strength gains and weight loss.
 
XT1: Although this class conditions the entire body, it's focus is on strengthening and maximizing muscular performance of Chest, Shoulders and Arms.
