Our mission is to give our members the best possible strength and conditioning program to produce real measurable improvements in how they look, feel, and perform. We do this without the hype or fads or narcissism that is so prevalent within the fitness world. We reject unhealthy and unproductive ideas about body image, nutrition, and exercise. Our members entrust us with their health. That is a trust we consider sacred, and will always respect and honor it.
We are professionals who take pride in the quality of our service, but are never so enamored with ourselves that we don't see a constant need to improve. That said, our staff are among the most highly skilled and qualified coaches in the region. We believe that to have quality staff requires that they get the experience, training, and freedom to develop. To do that we have an internal educational program to ensure the quality and guide their training. We believe in paying staff a living wage and working with their needs (for example, by giving moms and dads schedules compatible with their families) to ensure that their work here remains fulfilling and long-term.
Our entire staff lives in Tacoma, and most of us are native to it. We love this city and want to make it better. We can leverage the amazing community of people within the gym to support and promote our city and region. Whenever and as much as possible we buy local services and products and use local businesses. We support Tacoman fundraisers and events. We use products and employ practices to encourage a low-waste, low-energy operation.
