Gym

Welcome to Alabama Sasquatch, formerly Agoge Fitness Systems. With the not unsubtle changes brought about by COVID-19 I decided in mid 2020 to change the way I served my clients. I built a 1,000 square foot facility behind my house (AKA The Squatchery) and doubled down on what I do best - helping normal, everyday folks build better lives through strength and martial arts training. I offer small group training, personalized coaching, and private instruction.

Clients can train with me directly at The Squatchery or via my online offerings in the comfort of their own homes. To see our class schedule click HERE. To schedule a consultation email me at Dave@AlabamaSasquatch.com.

The Squatchery

Small Group Training

I offer small group classes in strength training, yoga (online only), Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and a Filipino martial art known as Kali. Small Group Training membership gives unlimited access to all four classes. Use the schedule below to register for your complimentary first class.

The Dawn Patrol

The Dawn Patrol is my early morning strength training class. This class is limited to six participants. Using a variety of tools, from barbells to kettlebells, dumbbells, sandbags, and clubs, heck even your own bodyweight, we will explore getting stronger and learning to get the most of this marvelous machine we call our bodies. This class meets at 6:00 am Monday, Wednesday, Friday. Two days a week are devoted to strength training and one day a week is for conditioning.

Yoga

This is an online class that let's you work on flexibility, strength, and mobility all from the comfort of your own home. Originally designed to be practiced from a chair, this is a perfect class for beginners of all abilities. Classes meet Wednesday at 5:30 pm and Saturday at 9:00 am.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu class is a gi based grappling class ideal for beginners. If you are not already familiar, jiu-jitsu is one of the world's most popular martial arts for both self defense and for fitness. Kids classes meet Tuesday and Thursday at 5:00 pm. Adult Classes meet Tuesday and Thursday at 6:00 pm. For more information on jiu-jitsu and our academy FAQ click HERE.

Kali

Kali is a Filipino martial art that utilizes various weapons (sticks, knives, and improvised weapons) to maximum effect. It is a self defense based art designed for real world application. You may not be aware but you've most probably already seen kali in action as most of the Hollywood stunt work of the last ten years draws heavily on this dynamic style. Class meets Monday and Wednesday at 5:00 pm.

Personalized Coaching

Through Personalized Coaching I can offer either locally, in my own gym, or remotely, via phone or email, program design and support. This is for intermediate and advanced trainees who know their way around a gym and are looking something shy of one on one instruction to help them along their journeys. Personalized Coaching includes programming and regular updates, plus a weekly check-in for support and troubleshooting. Access to the Squatchery (my home gym) and the Adult Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Kali classes is included.

 
Private Training

Private Training is the Cadillac plan at Alabama Sasquatch. With Private Training you get all the benefits of all the other plans plus direct access to me every workout. I'll teach you everything you need to know from warmups and mobility work to getting the most out of your strength training. You'll get the direct benefit of my over 15 years in the fitness industry and 30 years of martial arts training. I guarantee you'll come out feeling better about your body and armed with knowledge that will serve you for years to come. Private Training includes up to 3 sessions a week, plus access to the martial arts classes.
