You Are A Physical Being.
You Are Meant To Be Active.

Tacoma Strength is a community of people united in the common pursuit of living healthy active lives. Our members are athletes with jobs, parents, and people who want to make the most of their potential. We enjoy being challenged, learning new skills, encouraging and being encouraged by others.

The staff at Tacoma Strength designs our own training program to develop well-rounded fitness and then coaches daily group classes through the program. Every class is led by an experienced and dedicated coach. All you have to do is show up and do the work (and cheer for your mates). If you'd like to read in more detail about what we do, please see our About Us page.

To get started, you'll need to sign up for our Fitness 101 class which starts on the first Monday of each month.

Be Active. Get Started. Join Tacoma Strength.

Swim WODs Are Back
