What do you enjoy about SLSC?
My favorite thing about SLSC is the diversity. There is a place for everyone in every aspect of health and fitness.

What do you enjoy about coaching?
If I had to pick a single component of the many reasons I enjoy coaching weightlifting, it’s for those “lightbulb” moments when something finally clicks. Because it’s so technical, making real changes to movement patterns can be difficult. I love to see the sense of accomplishment when someone puts in hours and hours of hard work and finally hits that lift that “feels right”.

What would you say to someone who is considering trying out SLSC but is unsure?
SLSC is one of the rare gyms with the ability to cater to virtually anyone’s fitness needs. From functional fitness and HIIT workouts, to strength sports and ample open gym time, SLSC has a spot for everyone. This is combined with a fantastic coaching staff that stays up to date on the most effective training methods and focuses on providing members with the best experience possible. Every member is a part of a tight knit community that supports one another through every workout.
