At White Lion, we preach the benefits of weight training on health and performance - whether you are a competitive athlete or just want to move more easily.

But it's difficult to know where to start weight training, because it feels overwhelming. There's so many numbers, reps and sets, so many exercises... and how does one even know when "enough" is really enough??

We created this program for anyone new to weight training so that you don't have to ask those questions - we take care of the numbers and the planning, and you execute the workouts in the TrainHeroic App with our tips and movement videos. And it doesn't matter if you don't have gym equipment at home or a fitness studio membership.

You can train either in the comfort of your own home with a few improvisations, or in a gym full of equipment. The choice is yours.

Get ready for a six week adventure of understanding, experiencing, and reaping the benefits of structured weight training for new-to-strength athletes.

WITH OR WITHOUT EQUIPMENT
This program was designed for use at home, although all exercises can be done in a gym with fitness equipment. That means that, with a few improvisations (like using a backpack for weight during squats), this program requires very little financial investment to get started.

YOU ADJUST THE DIFFICULTY.
Nearly all exercises can be made easier or harder, and we list the variations (progressions to make things more challenging and regressions to tone them down a bit). Although the plan adjusts itself and will challenge you every week, you can make any exercise easier or harder, according to your training level.

ATHLETES FIRST.
We program with YOU in mind. In a world full of generic workout plans and super busy strength coaches, we put science into practice in our templates, and we plan for you - the athlete, the individual. Everyone is welcome in the Lion Pride!

FAQs
Who is this program for?
This program is from beginner-intermediate weight training athletes or anyone who trains at home. If you have never touched a weight in your life, it will slowly guide you to get started. If you have trained irregularly throughout your life, this will hold you to a structure that brings results.
What does "at home or in the gym" mean?
It means the whole program can be completed at home with minimal equipment/cost OR done in a gym with equipment and still be challenging. It's your choice.

"Thank you very much for helping me get back into training. I just needed that extra push and you did just that! I'm very glad with the progress we've made. I'm sure, without you, I'd just be making more excuses and postponing my training. Thanks, Coach."
