We don't weigh clients!!!

The fitness industry is broken in fact it’s fucked!!!

Training for the average person has become overly influenced by bodybuilders and biggest loser style tv shows. Progress is measured by aesthetics rather then performance and this often has a negative effect on the average client, physically and more importantly mentally.
