INVESTMENT: $99/month

EXPERIENCE: The great thing about this challenge is that no prior experience is required. As a matter of fact, the less experience you have the better.


  • Must commit to a minimum of 4 weeks. The first week is always tough. We need people who will be here at the end to reap the benefits of all this hard work.
  • Be committed to making this change. This will not work if we want to see you reach your goals more than you do!
  • The energy at our gym is infectious. When it’s positive energy, there’s nothing better. But negative energy spreads too.
  • Leave your ego at home. Hard work is respected here. It is a humbling experience that we’ve all been through.

We have personally seen how high-intensity interval training combined with strength training has dramatically changed the lives of those who commit to the process. This challenge was created to introduce this style of training to those who would absolutely benefit from it, but may be too intimidated to come in and try it on their own.

We are trying to find the right people who will work hard, finish the program, and ultimately be an amazing representation of what is possible through our training. If this sounds like something you would like to be part of, fill out the application ASAP. We always fill up quickly. We look forward to meeting you in person very soon.
