My Strength And Conditioning Gym Story
I’ve wanted to have my own strength and conditioning gym since 2002.
Now, throughout my travels during my career, I have been fortunate to train at many gyms.
I learned 2 great lessons at these gyms: what not to do and who I am really am.
What I will not do is promote the general falsehoods of the fitness industry.
Who I am is a student and coach of building strength, muscle, performance, and character. While it is easy to follow trends, I would no longer be true to what I believe in.
The Center took me 8 years to make it a reality. I now have the ability to give athletes the training and insight that I could not access as a kid.
When thinking of what I wanted aesthetically and culturally for my strength and conditioning gym, I thought back to 2002.
While I was at East Stroudsburg University, we took a track and field spring break trip to N.C. State in March 2002.
When we entered the Wolfpack’s weight room, I was blown away by the layout of the facility. All I saw was power racks, iron, and high-level athletes.
At that point I knew exactly what I wanted; a strength and conditioning gym that focused on building athletic performance and character.
I was never able to translate these thoughts into a reality while working for someone else at their gym. I was also unable to make my vision a reality when I was training as an independent contractor in other facilities.
But I never gave up.
I will warn you though that The Center will not be for everyone. The standards are high and weak-minded trainees are not invited or welcome.
The Journey to get to The Center was long, but it was well worth it.
