Fieldhouse Strong is a strength based program that can be tailored to your weekend warrior who is looking for a different kind of workout, satisfy your everyday meathead and a great introduction to someone getting into lifting for the first time, or someone knocking the dust off your lifting skills. The program is primarily focused on injury prevention, stability, flexibility, strength, speed, power, conditioning and nutrition. We accomplish this by primarily focusing on the powerlifting and bodybuilding aspects of strength training, while adding in little nuances of exercises that will help to prevent injury. We sprinkle in purposed conditioning in more unconventional ways with lots of carries, pushes and pulls rather than mindless cardio.
You will follow a conjugate / Westside-style model of training, but with a different focus on each. A beginner all the way up to an advanced athlete/lifter can do this program because the workouts will be modified to the individual. On top of the different focuses, we utilize a variety of equipment including various bars, machines, sleds, kettlebells, fat bells, dumb bells, exercises bikes, rowers, accommodating resistance (bands and chains) and numerous bodyweight exercises.
Fieldhouse Strong is run by Donny Smith, who has over ten years of experience as a Division 1 Strength Coach, NFL Combine Preparation, Crossfit Gym Owner, and Personal Trainer. We also offer small group training, team training, and individualized personal training. If you have any questions, please reach out to DSmith@chantillyyouth.org.

While frequently working out your body is likely to start to stiffen up. There are a few things to be done. Stretching, foam rolling, and now here at The Fieldhouse you have the option of body tempering.
Body Tempering was developed Donnie Thompson, by the first man to powerlift 3,000 lbs, and taught directly to The Fieldhouse’s own Donny Smith. It is used in some professional football weight rooms and with a number of powerlifters across the globe.
But what is body tempering and what does it do? Bodytempering.com says “Simply put, the X-Wife diffuses (Dispersal) tissue and its crushing weight relieves tightness involving fascia, muscle, veins, organs and nerves. They aid in ridding toxins (toxins are strongly acidic, metabolic waste and molecules associated with inflammation but not limited to) specifically from the fascia, veins and nerve encasement’s. Like a rolling pin kneading dough.” Muscle and Fitness did a great write up here: http://www.muscleandfitness.com/workouts/workout-tips/body-tempering-improve-physical-performance
