I have worked mostly with Murph and welcome this opportunity to share my experience with others. I sincerely believe that Murph may be one of the best professional trainers in the world. Whether the goal is powerlifting, strongman competition, sports specific training or just getting in great shape Murph is eminently qualified to create a program and then provide the encouragement to spur one on to personal excellence.
In my case I came to TPS and Murph with the somewhat ambitious and dubious goal of competing in a strongman competition at the age of 52 with little prior strength training. Frankly, I had my doubts, but then in my first 3 months of training I lost 6 pounds of fat, gained 6 pounds of muscle, put ¼” on my upper arms, more than 1” on my thighs and lowered my overall bodyfat by 2% while maintaining the same body weight. I am in the best shape of my life and getting stronger every week.
As a side benefit I will add that I am having more genuine fun then I have had in years. When I train at TPS the stress and grind of running a business melt away and I feel like a kid again.
As I said above, what a great place to train!!! Oh yeah, my one minor criticism might be the music. They play this loud weird stuff that I have never heard before. It does seem to motivate me, but it could be just heart palpitations from the loud thumping beat. I am not sure.
Hey Murph, how about some Dion and the Belmonts or Gene Pitney?? (just kidding)
