“Being a fairly active person, I anticipated Tongass was simply going to be a new way to sweat. It turned out to have a much bigger impact on my life than I ever could’ve imagined. The way my body changed and the progress in strength and flexibility was/is great, but it truly doesn’t outweigh the wonderful people I’ve been so lucky to connect with. Looking forward to growing in the community and working through the suck alongside other sweaty people.”

We 💚 ya 💪

Father, partner, friend, climber. And he created a little gym called Tongass Fitness. We carry on, keeping you close to our hearts. Rest in peace, sir. 💚

“There is a moment early in the morning where I’ve found myself on a snow-covered ridge having just pulled over the top of a face or skinning to a fresh line. I am with a good friend and there is less ahead than there is behind and a new day is dawning. The air is filled with potential energy; who knows what the day has in store? This is my favorite moment in life. I reach an awareness that I have only found in the mountains with good friends.”

"Tongass is my fitness family. When I started my fitness journey nearly three years ago I was seventy pounds heavier. While fitness was only a part of how I lost the weight, it is 100% of how I have been able to maintain a healthy weight for the last two years. Fitness goals I thought were never accessible to me are now achievable. These kinds of workouts really are for EVERY body. Everyone at Tongass is always so encouraging, wanting me to make my goals and celebrating with me when I do."

We 💚 having you here !!!

Big things come in small packages and is no exception! This Portland native has been with us since the beginning. She’s fierce and loyal and always speaks her mind. She’s the biggest Portland Trailblazers fan anyone has ever met AND the proud dog mom to 3 canines. She’s been killing it in the gym (and she might actually convince me to put on a country music workout). We 💚 you Jo!


Coach Caitlin is coming back to Tongass Fitness THIS weekend for a couple pop-up workshops. 💪🏿💪🏾💪🏽💪🏼💪🏻

Kettlebell class Sat 6/18 @ 11am-noon

Mobility Workshop Sun 6/19 @ 11am-noon

All levels welcome!


🚨 🚨 🚨 NEW COACH ALERT! Coach Sydney is here to pump you up! 🧡

“I am from a small cattle ranch in Colorado where fitness, nutrition, and competition came naturally. Functional fitness snuck into daily activities and I soon realized the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle in order to enjoy the things you love. I enjoyed high school athletics and was fortunate to continue my love for all things orange and athletic at Syracuse University where I was the mascot, Otto the Orange.

Following graduate school in Louisville, KY I moved to Juneau to begin my career as a registered dietitian at Bartlett Regional Hospital. I first experienced Tongass Fitness as a member where it quickly became the highlight of my day.

My passion to meet, connect and inspire people is what led me to become a Group Fitness Instructor. It is incredibly satisfying to create a space at 6:30 in the morning where people can break a sweat to start their day. My goal is to help people become functionally fit and strong in order to enjoy the beautiful, active lifestyle here in Alaska.”

Rachel is an absolute machine! Whether in the mountains or in the gym, she gives it her all. Winner of the 2021 Juneau Ridge Race and a winner in our hearts. She’s also a badass nurse, a great person, and also bakes some really good bread. .jr.phelps
