Meet the Founder

In 2008 I was working as a corporate consultant and looking for a way to improve my fitness. Having played competitive tennis growing up, I was frustrated by the boredom and lack of real results I felt from working out at a conventional gym.

Determined to find a better way, I spent the next several years learning everything I could about training, nutrition, and motivation. As my knowledge grew, people in my life started asking for help with their fitness goals, and I learned that many others shared this same frustration with conventional gyms and workout programs.

I created The Foundry as a way to offer busy professionals a fun, effective way to create and maintain their fitness.

Our Process

To find out whether The Foundry is right for you, schedule a free 30-minute consultation with one of our professional coaches.

  1. In the initial consultation, we will discuss your goals, athletic background, and help you create a plan for success.
  2. Complete “The Forge”, our program for new members. We begin with a comprehensive assessment followed by 6-12* private sessions with your coach to prepare you for group classes. Throughout your training, we will define proper nutritional habits, improve your conditioning, and teach you proper technique in the primary movements from gymnastics, powerlifting, Olympic lifting, mobility and more.
  3. Upon graduation from the program, you will be set up for success with our group classes and be well on your way toward achieving the best fitness of your life.  Over the next year, your coach will continue to meet with you at least once every three months to assess your progress toward your goals and ensure your ongoing success.

*Experienced athletes may be advanced to the group program more quickly.
