MPH provides serious fitness for everyone, group training and first class coaching. Quality, effort, and consistency matter most. We use functional movements (squats, deadlifts, presses, pull-ups, pushups, sit-ups, gymnastics, Olympic lifts, running, rowing), combine them infinitely and perform them in intense and effective workouts, short, medium and long in duration. Ours is the most professional and comprehensive coaching, and the hardest, but most rewarding workout. We believe in the physical, collective and collaborative strength of our community, safety, rational nutrition and that human capacity knows no limits. We support and take care of each other, and we have fun doing it.


In life, we each find places where we belong. Places that resonate with the core of commitments that can anchor our purpose during a given season of our life. I know that I can walk into the box at any time, at any class, and feel like I belong–even when I’m doing a scaled workout or when my progress is not at my best level that day. But I have a group of coaches and the support system that will push me to be the best that I can be in that moment and know that there is always tomorrow to keep improving to travel my new journey for my path, even when it can feel like penguin steps.
