Spartan Race 2019

8 miles, 30 obstacles, 4 grueling hours, 1 awesome team! WOW what a challenge the Spartan Super Race was yesterday!!! The rain poured, the wind chilled, and the mud sucked us in with every step. But through it all, we had each other’s backs. Literally– we had to hoist each other over walls and out…

Do you struggle with hand strength when opening jars, holding heavy pans, or tearing down boxes? Have you tried TRX suspension training yet? It’s hands-down my FAVORITE go-anywhere, do-anything workout tool. I especially love it for group workouts, because you can adjust the difficulty simply by changing angles! That means friends and family can work…

Although I wasn’t able to complete the full 6.2 miles every single day, (holidays being what they are,) I got pretty darn close, and I found that just STRIVING…

Pupper Therapy

By David Lyman / November 19, 2018

Beautiful day for a workout with man’s best friend! (How lucky am I?) I got to throw the ball for this sweet doggo, Annabelle, while her human, Scott, kicked butt on the TRX! Scott impresses me every week with his steady gains and determination. This tough guy — with a heart of gold — trains…

TFW you beat your 1 rep max

^ One of my favorite clients, Zac, doing some suspension training in his basement.   Like Superman, Zac doesn’t have to fight traffic to get to the gym, because mobile training brings the gym to YOU! (Ha ha ha.) But there’s also another reason he deserves to wear Superman’s cape: his inspiring backstory.   When…
