Get Started!

Who Are We Looking For?

You do not need to be in good shape to start. This program is designed for beginners!

  • Must be willing to come to our facility 3 days per week.
  • Must enjoy working in a group environment. The energy at our gym is infectious. When it’s positive energy, there’s nothing better. But negative energy spreads too.
  • Must be willing to take before and after photos to document our program’s success.
  • Must be committed to making this change. This will not work if the coaches and I want to see you reach your goals more than you do!
  • Must leave your ego at home. This is a place where hard work is respected. It is a humbling experience that we’ve all been through.
  • Must commit to the entire 6 weeks. The first week is brutal. We need people who will be here at the end to reap the benefits of all this hard work.
  • This is not a “biggest loser” type challenge. Not everybody will be coming in with the goal of weight loss. All transformations are welcome.
  • Must have the discipline to apply our nutrition plan. This is critical. We have a program that is tested and it works, but only if you follow it!
  • Must respect the rules of the gym. They’re in place to set the culture. The culture is in place to give you the best workout experience possible.

The next Start Strong Challenge will begin Jan 6, 2018.
