Who is at TFP?

TFP, The Fitness Pursuit, the vision of Owner and Coach Matt Petersen to create a place to come and go after your fitness pursuits. These goals can be anything: lose 100lbs, get down to the best race weight, learn a sport, improve in a sport, be the best, feel fit, look fit, and/or create balance in life. The people who come to work out here are as young as grade school to those who are enjoying retirement. Some will come ride/run from the TFP parking lot for free group workouts to spending an intense amount of time to reach their goal. All of TFP, coaches & athletes, don’t care how much or little you come, but if you say you are coming, we will remember and ask you how it went or ask why you didn’t show this week. We know what it was like to start because we all started.. once upon a time. Many of us were overweight or even obese… and all of us were new to this once. We know that if you just show up… you will improve on something, meet great people, leave with a smile and a plan for the future. TFP coaches and equipment are some of the best. They have studied it, got certified in it, seen it all, heard it all, done it themselves and are ready to help you! The equipment has been selected to leave no option better from workout to recovery to assessing. You will see the setup is similar to a science lab, so that we can gather data and use it to transform bodies and minds.

No matter your goal, you gotta start somewhere… so come join us!
