We are a husband and wife team who met in college, where Charlie was a 4-year letterman on the Varsity Basketball team and Tami discovered her love of exercise. We have over 30 years of combined experience in functional fitness, nutrition coaching, and sports performance.


Every time you walk into our facility or train with us online, we hope you feel valued, encouraged, and challenged. Your workout is important to us, but you can workout anywhere. There's much more to what we do than just kicking your butt and making you sweat.


There are a lot of fitness professionals who will take your money as long as you're willing to hand it over. They'll allow you to go through the motions, complain when you don't comply, and let you feel good about the idea of health without holding you accountable. We are not those trainers.


We ask that you check your negativity at the door. We're going to give you our relentless effort, including additional support outside of your workouts. Our testimonials speak to our high level of care and expertise. We simply ask for your best effort and coachability in return.


You can expect us to be a product of the product. We are physically active, and perform the same type of exercises we ask of our clients. We eat clean, use food to fuel our bodies, and fill gaps in our diet using world-class supplementation. We use our minds and bodies to honor the Lord. Our faith and family are our top priorities.


If you feel we can be of value to you and your family and friends, it would be our privilege to find out how we can serve you.

Besides exercising, one thing we love to do is hike. Here are two of our favorite hikes.

Hiking the Grand Canyon from south rim to north rim (21 miles and 10,500 feet of total elevation change).

Hiking Angels Landing trail at Zion National Park in Utah. It has been rated one of the most dangerous hikes in the US by the Discovery Channel due to the 1000+ foot drop-offs & narrow ledges.
