Let's bust through it together with Straight Up Strength!

Allow me to help you discover your inner BAMF again 👊

You’ll find the perfect balance of absolute strength, relative strength, & mental strength.

Get Jacked & Shredded
We’ll go BIG ON THE BASICS (squats, deadlifts, presses, rows, dips, pull-ups, weighted carries) & always prioritize the most “value for time” exercises while improving your body’s work capacity through short & intense bouts of conditioning. A jacked & shredded physique is simply a byproduct of all of this. 🔥

Get Excited About Training
I pride myself in making some of the most fun, varied, & EFFECTIVE workouts you will ever do. People always judge a program based on results, but you’ll never get results if you’re not having fun & sticking to the program! While you'll most certainly be challenged, you'll have downright FUN & get RESULTS, guaranteed!

Get Strong with Accessory Work
We'll supplement our big lifts with strength accessory work to make sure we're hammering away at our weaknesses, turning them into strengths. 💪

FAQs
When should I join the Team?
Now! Jump right into today's training session with the rest of the team. Take some time to acclimate and keep in mind that this is a long-term journey. You won't get to where you wanna be in 1 workout, so train smart, ask questions, and know that me and the rest of your teammates are here too!
How long does each session take?
Sessions will vary in length but I always aim to keep them between 50-60 minutes. We'll get in, get after it, and get out. I know how valuable your time is and I want to make sure I'm constantly respecting that while giving you a real opportunity to make each session count.
What if I miss a workout?
Don't sweat it. Life happens. Just get back to it as soon as you're able. The rest of the team will miss you while you're out, and we'll be stoked to see you back at it.
Are you really coaching the Team?
Yes! I'm programming your training and monitoring how you and your teammates are doing. When I'm on the message boards chatting with everyone, it's actually ME typing away, doing my best to make sure I'm the best coach for you that I can be.

"I’ve been a very active person my whole life but always struggled sustaining my results. This is what I believe makes TRUE STRENGTH stand out. It focuses on the BASICS, has me done in an hour, and there's no BS. The only thing I regret is not finding out about this sooner."
