Reconnect with movement in a comfortable, individualized space with a coach who encourages you, laughs with you, and who understands your challenges.
I love this! Our classes are all about practice. Practicing how to move well in our own bodies throughout the day!
"I never went to the gym to work out. I went to learn. I ended up sweaty and tired, so you might say a workout happened, but it was in the process of learning."
–Dr. Ed Thomas
At StrongFirst, we view strength, endurance, power, and other athletic qualities as skills. Accordingly, we approach our training as a “practice,” not a “workout.” It will pay to acquire this mindset from the start.

Excited to be starting certification with Precision Nutrition today. Yes, we had TONS of nutrition in chiropractic school, but helping patients set life-long habits is a whole new skill set. Classes start today, and I should be finished with the program in a few months. Looking forward to sharing more information with you!
If you think of body change as a pyramid, here’s what it should look like.
You'll notice it’s the opposite of what you might expect.
All the “expert stuff” — adjusting macronutrients, advanced nutrition strategies, etc. — is at the top. They’re a “nice to have”.
The base of the pyramid — your foundation — is what surrounds you.
In general, when it comes to engineering healthy eating, here’s the golden rule:
1️⃣ Make healthy behaviors convenient.
2️⃣ Make other behaviors less convenient.
Here are some examples of these rules in action:
~ USE SMALLER PLATES AND CUPS — Most people eat everything on their plate. Use a smaller plate and you end up eating less naturally.
~ AVOID KEEPING FOODS YOU DON'T WANT TO EAT -Why risk the temptation?
~ PARK YOUR CAR FURTHER FROM YOUR DESTINATION - This way, you'll have to walk. Those extra steps add up.
By simply changing your environment in small ways, you can make changes without even thinking about them.
