Find Programming

Working out at home is convenient, allows for more freedom, there is no waiting in line, you can wear whatever you want, and the list goes on and on…. However, it can be tough to find a plan that fits your goals and stick to it every day. Some days you walk into the garage and have no idea what to do, or any motivation to do it. The programs below help alleviate this issue.

Street Parking

Overview: Street Parking evolved from Miranda and Julian posting random workouts while traveling or while super busy so getting a session in at home – to a daily program that those with a busy schedule can follow.  The program is designed specifically for people who train at home or on the road with minimal equipment or time.  Most of the workouts are high-intensity circuits like CrossFit style workouts.  Street Parking also offers 5 accessory workouts per week that can be added in (or not) based on the goals of the athletes following.  These include Street Parking Oly, Street Parking Endurance, Street Parking Power, Butts and Guts, and Suns Out Guns Out.

Three versions of the workout are posted every day based on what equipment you have available and scaling or substitution options for different levels are always included.  Every day there is a demo video showcasing the movements.  These are available through the program’s private Instagram and Facebook pages set up for members.

Equipment Needed: There are 3 variations of the workout every day based on equipment. These aren’t LEVELS, just options that you can pick from for the workout that day.
  •  Program A is for the minimalist.  All that is required here are a set of dumbbells or 2, a jump rope, and ideally a med ball and something to pull yourself up on (this can even be a doorway pull up bar or some TRX bands for rows.)
  • Program B is for those that have the above (med ball, jump rope, pull up something) and also have a bar and plates!
  • Program C is for those who have more of a full garage gym.  This person may have access to a rack, a bike or a rower etc.

ALTR Project

Overview:  ALTR is a game changer for garage athletes! They are the FIRST completely customisable tool for your unique gym, schedule & training regime. The easy user interface (and powerful back end) allows you to create methodized and concise programs, unique to you.

Testimonial from Rob Wheatley: “When I moved from Mount Maunganui to Taranaki, I decided to invest in a garage gym… But the best investment I made was in ALTR. As an L1 Trainer and Kids trainer, I know enough about CrossFit to do this myself, but ALTR makes it so simple that I don’t need to. It takes about 5 clicks of my mouse, and I’m programmed for the week. The programming is specific to me, the equipment I have and my standard. It has been stuff I would never dream of programming for myself (running and pushups!!) and so is the perfect companion. I’ve been recommending it to anyone and everyone I know, and will continue to do so!”

Equipment Needed:  There are options to exclude the equipment you do not have available. You can also manually change/edit/scale ANY workouts.
