The main goals at Training For Warriors Fair Lawn

The primary goals among coaches and clients at Training For Warriors Fair Lawn are to build muscle, lose fat and improve confidence. Our strategy and mantra is to treat and train everyone like an athlete. At the Fair Lawn facility we have some of the world's best and most cutting edge training tools at our disposal. The centerpiece of our facility is the 6 lane 58 yard Mondo Olympic grade track. Sprinting is integral to our training program. The feeling of running on a surface meant for speed is nothing short of liberating. Our expansive turf area measures 35 yards by 20 yards and gets a lot of use during the lower body sessions where sled pushes and farmer's walks are performed. In addition, the weight room has four squat racks, two benches, 2100 pounds of bumper plates and dumbbells ranging from 4 pounds to 140 pounds. Our facility also includes three Assault Bikes and three Concept 2 rowers. This equipment is heavily utilized during our Friday and Saturday energy circuits. For the uninitiated, we have provided a brief description of some of our most used and useful equipment.
