Meet the Team
I created this space with one vision… To create a space where anyone and everyone felt comfortable walking through the doors. I am not your average gym owner, I’m not even your average gym goer…I’m just a big guy that likes lifting heavy objects. I workout to help my mental health more than my physical health.
Lifting heavy makes me feel less anxious and happier. I’m taking a hard left hand turn in life
opening this gym, and hope you join me on this journey!

Allison’s strength journey started unconventionally while training for a triathlon! Tri training led her to a kickboxing gym for some extra conditioning, where kickboxers trained next to kettlebells, pull up rigs, and squat racks. Allison quickly found a barbell in her hands and it was love at first lift.
Today, Allison is a NCCP Competition Certified Weightlifting Coach and a Level 1 Catalyst Athletics Certified Weightlifting Coach. She works with all levels of lifters, from beginners to competitive athletes, but particularly loves helping people improve their lifts through better movement and technical ability. Her own experience as a competitive lifter along with her formal coaching training gives her the ability to provide effective instruction and correction on the Olympic lifts.
