THE gym where you need to be!
We asked our clients three questions:
What are a few of your favorite lifts and or exercises you like to do at H.A.F.?
What has been your biggest accomplishment so far while training at H.A.F.?
"H.A.F. has the tools to work on being more explosive. For example, the box jump and using the Rage Balls. So far, my greatest accomplishment in my athletic career is breaking East Carolina's, David Garrard's passing record."
Why H.A.F.: "Because it's the best grungy gym I have ever been to."
“Favorite Exercises? The basic strength lifts: Deadlifts, Squats, Bench Press. For me some of the simplest exercises are the most satisfactory because you can easily see and track your progress, set goals, and reach them. I also really enjoy Olympic Lifts such as the Clean and Jerk and Snatch.
"Greatest accomplishment? My proudest moment came far outside of the gym; it was when I was on my expedition in the Yukon Territory and I realized all my training and work had paid off. I could hike and climb and enjoy the experience of being in that amazing place and not worry about whether I could physically do it."
Why H.A.F.?: "I like that it is just a classic no frills gym where people come to train and work hard to better themselves. I also love the people there and feel that the best trainers in the valley are found at H.A.F."
"There is no other gym locally that has numerous squat racks with bumper weights for me to practice power cleans and deadlifts.
"My body weight as gone from 210lbs to 170lbs."
Why H.A.F.: "Because the other gyms won't let you snatch."
"What can I say, I agree with Ned, power cleans and deadlifts. My biggest accomplishment since training with Kevin, is becoming more lean as well as bulking up."
Why H.A.F.: "Because its where the locals train and the staff treats you like family"
"H.A.F. has Kevin Mora as the owner and is my personal trainer…enough said! I would say my ultimate favorite is doing split-jerks and deadlifts. I am proud to have deadlifted 250lbs!”
Why H.A.F.: "Because it's a legit gym and I know that when I am there no time or money is wasted."
"I can’t choose just one lift I like the best! Bench, deadlifts and squats. So far, my max bench is 425lbs, max deadlift is 520lbs and squat is 505lbs.”
Why H.A.F.: "Three reasons: 1. Sweat, 2. Chalk and 3. Iron, this is a no BS gym.!"
" Great, affordable gym. Everything you need for fitness is onsite. You really could not ask for more in a facility the size of High Altitude."
Why H.A.F.: "The owners and staff are friendly and helpful"
