Basic Strength Training Orientations
Looking for an efficient workout? Want to learn how to use the machines safely and properly? Register for a Strength Training Orientation at the MAC or Hemenway. Strength Training orientations are 45-minute sessions, during which members are led through a row of circuit
machines by a certified personal trainer. During the Basic STO, members will be provided with a list of the circuit machines  along with information on technique, moderation, progression, and machine adjustments. Please note that these are not customized  personal training sessions.  Members will not be shown how to use dumbbells or cable machines, and will not be exercising during the STO.
**Please contact Mike Doyle with any questions regarding STOs: hempt at fas.harvard.edu. http://recreation.gocrimson.com/fitness/strength_trainingorientations

Participants  in the Advanced STO will actually perform a workout routine that is based on free weights rather than exercise machines, and will also be provided with
information regarding progressions and safe, effective workout habits.  Members who sign up for the Advanced STO should be familiar with the gym's  exercise equipment and are recommended to have a history of moderate physical activity. Participants will be given a hard copy of the program for future reference.
