Why We Do the 'No Sweat Intro'


Over the last several months we’ve implemented a “No Sweat Intro” for all those who walk through the doors of Line of Departure Athlete. Before we lift a single pound of weight, we want to sit down with each person.

This is our first interaction with you, the athlete, and plays an incredibly important role as we get started together.

Why do we do it?

  • Understand your motivations

    Not everyone who comes here has the same training goals. Some want to lose weight, some want to get stronger, some want to move better. Each person has a distinct motivation, and no two are alike. In order to get you where you want to go, we need to understand your “why.”

  • Understand your training history

Just like your motivation, each persons training history is varied. We have several impressive athletes with long training histories. We have others who are complete gym newbies and have to start from the ground up. Everyone will be pushed, but our understanding of your history allows us to provide the best possible service for you.

  • Understand your strengths & limitations

We all have strengths, and we all have limitations. Our mission is to encourage those strengths and blast through those limitations, but the reality is that previous injuries can initially limit what you can do. Understanding your injury history allows us to scale movements and intensities appropriate to what you can efficiently handle.

  • Determine Your Path Forward

We have multiple training, nutrition, and onboarding options. Our conversation will give us the information and ability to provide the absolute best recommendation for you going forward. This first interaction can often be the best indicator of whether you’ll flame out like a shooting star, or commit to a lifetime of training, health, and performance.

  • Assess & Reassess

    If you come to the gym now, you know that every single training cycle has an initial assessment, and a final assessment based on its focus. The same principle applies as we get into training - we want to hear what you’re happy with, what you want to improve, and what you hate (besides Sandbag Get Ups) to continuously keep you on the right track.
