About Us 2017-10-02T09:57:17+00:00

These are the pillars of our fitness programming, and our training regimen is designed to be sustainable and attainable throughout your life. By using precise, thoughtful body positioning and basic human movement patterns – push, pull, bend, twist, lunge (walk, run), squat – plus flexibility work, we create a structural integrity in your joints and muscles that will allow you to do things you never imagined. We will always make sure you are able to move with strength and confidence (mobility & stability) in a particular pattern before we would want to add any additional stress (ie. weight) or ask that it be performed at a high intensity pace (strength & performance).

We believe that there is a place for nearly every style of workout or fitness program. While body-weight movements are the bedrock of our programming, we routinely incorporate kettlebells, medicine balls, barbells, cardio & plyometrics, high-intensity interval training, and gymnastics as well. We bring what we believe to be the best of each of these training modalities together to create our progressive programming. Each athlete in our gym (we consider all of our members to be athletes) begins at a different level. No matter if you were a collegiate athlete or have never done a single push-up, our staff, and our incredible community, will meet you right where you are and support you on your fitness journey.

There are no age requirement. Our goal is to help you build functional strength that will allow you to thrive, physically, throughout your life.
