Together We Will Endure
Dūrātus (dur-ah-toos) sure is an odd sounding word...this might have been your first thought. It sounds odd because it's not english, it's latin. This word was not chosen at random. It's actually filled with meaning. Dūrātus means to "endure" or "harden"-- this word signifies the journey to become "hardened" in fitness and character.
It's a journey that will take endurance.
Dūrātus started with the belief that "going to the gym" could be about more than a workout. What if fitness was not cardio or machines or "chest and back" days?
Could fitness be transformative? Can our fitness be directly correlated to our development as people?
We believe it can.
Dūrātus is not your typical gym. It's a place that uses fitness to challenge fear, develop discipline and create community.
Dūrātus exists to be more than a gym. We are a community of people not only seeking to become all that we can, but also seeking the betterment of our city, which we love.
We believe it should.

This week's programming will introduce a new training concept. Rate of perceived exertion (or RPE) is a new metric that will be applied to some of the strength movements throughout the cycle. RPE is based on the effort exerted throughout a set and, among many benefits, helps to standardize the effort and intensity desired for a given set. For easy of understanding, RPE can be defined as the amount of reps away from failure. Based on a 1-10 scale (10 being maximum effort), you can subtract how many reps from failure you felt the set was from 10 to determine your RPE number.
Stiff legged deadlift
5 reps @ RPE 6, 5 reps @ RPE 7, 5 reps @ RPE 8
Dumbbell or kettlebell front rack Cossack squat
3x10 reps/ leg; RPE 7
In 1 minute perform;
x10 heavy kettlebell swings
max echo bike calories
rest 2 minutes between rounds
*pick heaviest manageable weight for swings
**aim to keep echo calories consistent across all 5 rounds
