Hey Tongass Fitness friends! With the temporary suspension of group classes, now is the perfect time to try out Chad Andersen’s personal training. If you have even been a little curious to see what it’s all about, I just finished my intro package and can’t recommend it enough. The work is tailored for me to reach long and short term goals and is the perfect addition to our regularly scheduled WODs.
observe my expansion!
This is a quite the deal on great lifters if anyone is in the market to pick up a pair. Only $65 (regular $130). Plus free shipping!

Anybody thinking about registering for the Open this year?
Hey everyone! Word on the street is tomorrow is a partner WOD and I can only make morning workouts. Anyone want to join me at 5:30am tomorrow: Thursday, January 17?
Knowing there’s an awesome group of folks all the way over in Alaska smashing out Burpees on Black Wolf Fitness’ behalf has made my year!

You bunch of LEGENDS.

Anglo-American relations going strong.

🇬🇧💪🏻🇺🇸

All the best to you Logan, & the good folks at Tongass Fitness.

Hi! Close to 100 kids need adult support to achieve their 5K running goal on Saturday, May 12th. We are looking for volunteers to paint faces, prep the course, color hair, be a running buddy, court marshal, etc. See details below.

Volunteer for a child's special day of accomplishment and celebration!

You are invited to the Spring 2018 Girls on the Run and Boys Run I toowú klatseen 5K! Girls on the Run inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident. Boys Run I toowú klatseen (strengthen your spirit) empowers boys to create communities of respect. Both programs teach life skills while creatively integrating running, and conclude with all participants completing the celebratory 5k, which gives the kids a tangible sense of achievement, as well as a framework for setting and achieving future life goals. Come help these kids celebrate their special day and show them how much their community cares about them!

When: Saturday, May 12
9:00 am- Volunteers arrive
10:00 am- Families arrive
10:30 am- Run starts

Where: Riverbend School (outside covered area)

Volunteers needed:
Celebration volunteer
Celebration is the party before the 5K. This is a time when kids try to calm their pre-run nerves! We need volunteers to color hair, paint faces, organize games, decorate the course, and take pictures.
Running buddy
A running buddy is someone 18 years or older who runs or walks the entire 5K alongside a child. Every season we have kids who need community volunteers to encourage them from start to finish. We have runners and walkers of all speeds.
Course marshals
Course marshals monitor the course and direct kids, making sure they feel celebrated along the course. Extra credit for dressing up in fantasy costume!

To volunteer, please sign up here!

Questions? Please contact Natalie at [email protected] or 586-4902.

“I’m the owner and head coach of Tongass Fitness! I grew up a US Air Force brat and have roots in Texas and Hawaii, but I’ve been calling Juneau home since 2003. I became serious about powerlifting in my twenties and with the help of my friend Ryan Johnson, I became involved with the world of functional fitness in 2015. Together, we opened Tongass Fitness a year later. In 2018, we lost Ryan, but we carry his spirit with us here at Tongass.

My favorite part of coaching is guiding people towards transformation - getting someone to realize how strong they actually are and letting them see their true potential. It’s a magical thing. I have a Bachelor’s in Social Sciences, a Master’s of Arts in Teaching, and I spent a few years both as a paraeducator and teacher. My fitness certifications include: CFL1, USAW Level 1, and Brand X Youth Coach.

I’ve been married to my beautiful wife, Rosie, since 2018. I love to travel, having been to over 20 countries. I also have a strong affinity for pizza, beer, and heavy metal (and I think a well-rounded fitness and nutrition routine can include all those things!).”

The guru himself…Coach Chad Andersen!

“I began my fitness career in college working as a group fitness/spin instructor at the YMCA in Ashland, OR in 2009. Since then, I have gone on to lead several fitness classes, became the trainer of my collegiate rugby team, lead a YMCA youth fitness program, and gained my personal training certification through the American Council on Exercise (ACE). My passion has always revolved around health and fitness and helping others discover that same passion in themselves.

I graduated college with a Masters in Business Administration with an emphasis in accounting before moving to San Francisco as an auditor. Despite my career choice, fitness remained my passion and eventually would draw me back but not before a few years as an employed vagabond-tour guide. I was blessed to spend 6 years driving over 100,000 miles around the United States taking passengers to 49 states and over 50 national parks/historic sites.

As a personal trainer and group fitness instructor, I primarily focus on functional fitness, constantly asking, how will these movements in the gym benefit me in my daily life? My goal is to train my clients to become the best version of themselves, training to better handle the adversities of daily life, hobbies, and whatever steps, boulders, hills, or mountains dare stand in their way.”

If you know her you love her, our own Coach Jaimie! 💚

“I had an amazing childhood growing up here in Juneau. With so many opportunities for fishing, camping, hiking, and hunting the interest in physical fitness, or being physically fit, started early.

Once out of high school I pursued my love of animals and agriculture spending the next 10 years obtaining two different college degrees while having a whole lot of fun.

Fast forward a few years and I found myself on a great career path that isn’t as physical as I wanted to be. A good friend suggested I check out functional fitness which brought me to the door of Tongass Fitness almost five years ago as a masters athlete. There’s something special about the camaraderie you become folded into with Tongass. It’s a very accepting, supportive environment and one that prompted me to take another step in obtaining my coaching certificate in 2018. As a coach I enjoy helping my athletes reach their goals. It doesn’t get much better than watching someone achieve something they’ve been working so hard for.”

Tongass is proud to have Coach Roy!

“I was born in Arizona, but I grew up in Idaho where my parents pursued a back-woods Alaska-like lifestyle. I spent my childhood outdoors all the time. That led to my current career as a wildlife biologist, and to my current job in Juneau as the Wildlife Area Biologist managing wildlife populations.

I started my fitness journey in high school with long-distance track, which I continued into college. After I realized I was too slow to be a collegiate athlete I played a lot of ultimate frisbee. In pursuing both sports, it was the community that drew me in.

I have been in Alaska for about fourteen years, and originally came up to attend the University of Alaska Fairbanks and get my PhD studying the migration of birds. Close to the end of my degree I needed an exercise outlet, and that is when I found functional fitness. Once again, it was the community that made the sport so rewarding! As time passed, I gained experience and at some point, I was able to provide pointers to others about how to improve their movement. Watching your companions improve and get stronger is such a reward, and that is why I started coaching. My goal is to give folks the best hour of their day as they become better people.”

Introducing Coach Kimmy!

“I've lived in Alaska my whole life & plan to stay for longer to help people pursue a healthy relationship with themselves through exercise, food, and rest. Outside the gym, I'm currently studying to be a dietitian. I believe the beautiful marriage of individualized nutrition and movement can increase one’s quality of life.

My favorite saying is: alone we go faster, together we go further. That's why I love Tongass because it's exciting to see what people of all ages and backgrounds can do in just one hour of their day. We build each other up by believing that our bodies are capable of hard things, our struggles through the workouts become a group effort, and we celebrate the wins together in the end. I think the biggest flex Tongass offers is creating a healthy, thriving environment for people to build confidence in and outside the gym. Here it isn't who is the strongest or fastest or about looks, but it's believing in your ability to move in order to succeed.

I look forward to growing as a coach and helping educate and inspire others to believe that they are capable of being an athlete and seeing them become 1% better each day.”
