What is the Fit Augusta Downtown Fitness Fundamentals Program?

We know that some people prefer personal training – an environment that allows for focus on your body at all of its limitations, strengths, weaknesses and pain, others prefer small group classes – gain community, cheer each other, feel the energy and maybe even go to brunch together! And then others prefer a hybrid approach to fitness, where you have the focus you need with personal training coupled with the small group class environment. Which one are you?

Whatever works for your body AND your mind, our fundamentals Program has you covered.

Our fundamentals coaches you through proper technique in all 6 Foundational Movement patterns. We coach you through proper technique, so you move safely AND we learn about HOW your body moves along the way.

How does the Fundamentals Program at Fit Augusta Downtown help me?

With the Fit Augusta Downtown fundamentals program, you don’t just sign up and hop in to group classes with the coach knowing nothing about you, or you knowing nothing about the class. You don’t just sign up and start lifting heavy weight in personal training sessions. Those are both quick ways to get hurt and feel frustrated, and end up quitting your new fitness routine again. Have you been there? I know I have!

Our fundamentals program is designed to make sure you get the benefits of exercise that show up in your everyday life.

Since we train you for what life throws at you outside these gym walls, we have to start by mastering the foundations in order to build upon them.

What are the 6 foundational movement patterns?

The 6 foundational movement patterns that are found in everyday life are: squat, hinge, lunge, push, pull and carry.


      • Squat: Sitting on the toilet, getting in and out of a car, sitting on the couch

      • Hinge: Picking something up that you dropped, bending over to pet a dog, picking up a child

      • Lunge: Helps you get up off the floor, walking up stairs, hiking

      • Push: Pushing a child on a swing, push yourself off the ground, push a car that is broken down

      • Pull: Pulling something off a shelf, pulling someone up off of the ground

      • Carry: Carrying a child, groceries, moving boxes, laptop bag

    We do teaching and assessment of each of these movement patterns by providing you with personal training sessions to start. After that, you begin either group classes or continue with personal training sessions to reach your goals. If there is more focus needed to excel in these foundational movements, we won’t hold you back from joining classes if you feel ready, but we will continue working with you as needed to improve along the way.
