Welcome to Chroma Strength and Conditioning
The word Chroma means “ and at Chroma S&C we say it with respect to movement – “the purity and intensity of movement”.
To explain, we start by helping athletes create good quality movement, striving to achieve the purity of movement. Once we have that, we add intensity to see where we can really push performance, resulting in the intensity of movement!
Our team of expert coaches and allied health professionals have a combined experience of over 20 years and are continually educating themselves to ensure the best service is delivered.
Chroma S&C is a place where athletes of all endeavours receive specific coaching and knowledge that enables them to reach their goals. On top of this our athletes get behind each other, creating an environment that feeds progression and improvement.

Chroma has two styles of classes…
First we have our hour long functional fitness style class which incorporates a mix of skill development, strength and metabolic conditioning. Our skill development focuses on body control and movement centered around gymnastics (pull ups, toes to bars, muscle ups, ring muscle ups, pistols, skin the cats etc.). Strength is focused around lifting load after working on the skill and movement patterns in big lifts ranging from traditional power lifts (squat, bench, deadlift) all the way through to technical lifts in Olympic lifting (clean, jerk, snatch) as well as plenty of accessories to these. Finally with metabolic conditioning we bring in all the different modalities from kettlebells, barbell, gymnastics, monostructural movements, even strongman and animal flow. With these modalities we modify the time domains, rep ranges, weights etc. to change the stimulus on the body and train different energy systems to create different varied adaptations. All of these combine to create a well-rounded training system!
