• Well, this month I’m not going to have a lot of time to write too much.
    You see, I’ve been BUSY.
    You may recall I used to write about being jammed all day a lot and not having time to get things done.

    Well, I still am busy, but in a much better way.
    Before, I was always putting out fires and playing catch up.
    A lot of this had to do with our software and other factors.
    Now, we have switched to MINDBODY for running the gym and (live and learn) we should have done it sooner because it actually works and I don’t have to waste time putting out fires.
    I also have the best team that TPS has ever had in place.
    When you have a team of dedicated and motivated people that give 100% everyday things happen.
    Great things.
    We are working behind the scenes on a few new products and services that we hope will blow you away.
    We’ve got a new membership coming very soon and a top-secret project that is under construction.
    These require a ton of work, but it’s not catch-up work. It’s awesome work that is rewarding.
    Read on below for more details on the new membership that is coming soon and stay tuned here for more announcements over the coming months on the top-secret project.
    Oh, and surround yourself with great people.
    It makes a difference.

    Strongman Saturdays

    Strongman Saturdays, Svend Karlsen


    The next TPS Strongman Saturday, February 11th at noon and we are smashing the Axle Clean and Press.

    • It’s thick
      It’s stiff
      It’s wicked hard

    I’m talking about the Axle.
    Let us teach you what you need to know about handling this beast of a barbell.
    Come and learn from the Pro’s.

    TPS has been coaching Strongman for 18 years. Use our experience to get better at your sport.

    You do not need to be a member to attend.

    Bring a friend with you if they train elsewhere, we love new people!
    Beginners are always welcome to! No experience is necessary.

    Drop in and learn, have fun and get stronger.

    You can register for the next Strongman Saturday here

    or at the Front Desk the day of.


    Training Day:


    The next TPS Training Day is Saturday February 18th at noon and it is time to Squat!
    Squatting is the single most effective exercise in the world.
    Squatting gets a bad rap from doctors, the media and a bunch of 123 pound, 14 year old Instagram gurus with flat brimmed hats cocked to the side.
    Pay them no mind. The human body was designed to squat.
    Squats are safe effective and awesome when done right.
    Join us at Training Day and let my team of professional Strength Coaches teach you how to:

    • Learn to Squat Properly
      Protect your spine by using your abs
      Keep your knees form caving in
      Root like an Oak tree
      Prevent hip impingement
      Lock in your upper back to prevent you from falling forward
      Keep the weight where it needs to be at each point in the lift
      Be more awesome

    Squatting is very technical but we will teach you to be better at it!

    Learn the tips and tricks we teach our clients and athletes.
    Training Day is for BEGINNERS to ADVANCED lifters as well as those who compete or wish to compete.

    If you use gear, bring it with you. We will teach you how to maximize its use.
    Training day is the best $20.00 you can spend on a Saturday afternoon if you are serious about your training.

    You do not need to be a member to attend.

    Beginners to advanced lifters are all welcome.
