Persist: Minimalist

Functional Bodybuilding At Home Subscription

When pushup challenges get old…


Uncertainty is the word of the day – and if you’re feeling it, you’re not alone. As COVID-19 advances around the globe, most of us are finding ourselves ripped from our normal routines and rhythms, and the communities that support us. The gym is not just a place to build biceps and butts. Connecting to movement, strengthening our bodies, developing mental fortitude, and releasing stress are vital to our health and longevity.

Without the people and familiar routines you’ve relied on in the past to keep you grounded and cheer you on, keeping a fitness routine is tough. Instagram is full of push-up challenges, living room burpees, and gyms trying to keep their collective families intact. Any way you can find to keep moving is worth doing, but figuring out how to train at home with everything else going on takes energy and motivation that you probably need for other things.

As a coach with decades experience working with clients in a huge range of equipment situations and stations in life, I’ve seen firsthand that even with minimal equipment or none at all, you can still make progress on your strength, conditioning, and skills. Functional Bodybuilding is a system of training that builds control and strength week by week, keeping you on a forward path and connecting you to the feeling of making progress.


Center yourself and take daily action with thoughtful programming that balances movement patterns across your entire body, mixes challenging workouts that allow you to push with mindful recovery, and supports the Look Good Move Well lifestyle. Nurture your nourishment, sleep, and stress reduction too with Sunday recovery “work-ins.”
