What is B.A.S.E. Camp?

B.A.S.E. Camp is our small group training program that joins Collins Aerospace Rec Center and Rec Center Physical Therapy. Our certified trainers and physical therapists will provide a custom plan to help you reach your optimal movement potential.

Each person will start with a movement screen to evaluate seven fundamental movement patterns that are key to daily function: squatting, stepping, lunging, reaching, leg raising, push-ups and rotary stability. The movement screen will identify functional deficits related to balance, mobility and stability to determine if your movement patterns are optimal, acceptable or dysfunctional.

How will B.A.S.E. Camp benefit you?

  • Build a strong foundation in fundamental movement patterns
  • Emphasize core control and body alignment
  • Focus on joint mobility and stability
  • Improve balance, agility, strength and endurance

After going through the screening process, a personalized corrective exercise plan will be formulated for you.

All fitness levels will benefit from B.A.S.E Camp.

The Mindful Movement class works on building a strong foundation in fundamental movement patterns, while emphasizing ideal form and body alignment. Proper breath control and deep core activation are addressed. Movements focus on joint mobility and stability, setting the groundwork for building balance, control and strength. This class benefits everyone at any stage of their movement journey.

The Functional Performance class will challenge you with complex movements while maintaining proper joint alignment, range of motion and core control. It presents a mix of cardio and strength using fundamental movement patterns for a highly effective workout. We dive deeper into building more balance, strength, agility and endurance using our new small group training studio.

Specialized Skill classes are offered for blocks of time throughout the year focusing on a specific skill/activity. The Youth Performance class is for active Rec Center youth ages 12-18. Classes are 60 minutes long and meet two times per week for 8 weeks. Half of the class time focuses on weight training, the other half of class is spent on speed and plyometric training. These 8-week sessions are offered once each Fall, Winter and Spring.
