The Genesis of TEAM Strength

New gym membership: check!

College-issued shirt and shorts: check!

Stretch & Warm Up: check!

... now what?

Why can't I remember ANYTHING that we did in the weight room during college? I mean everyday for the last 5 years I'd been coached by a D1 college strength coach; you'd think I would remember something!!

I looked at my workout partner, (another D1 basketball player and former teammate) "What do we got today?" I asked.

"Maaan, you're the Kin[esiology] major, I thought you had something," he replied.

It wasn't just us. My wife, another former D1 athlete, felt like she was missing something from her at-home workout app.

At a D1 school, you have every resource available! As a D1 athlete, you have access to some of the best health and wellness facilities imaginable. As a D1 team, there are a lot of people put in place just to ensure your success:

Nutritionists to guide your eating habits.

Teammates to help keep you accountable.

And most importantly, coaches to tell you what to do!


Then we were on our own. We didn't know it at the time, but we were going through what most former college athletes go through after their athletic career. Most athletes put some thought to post-athlete life; it just usually doesn't include working out.

Roseville, like most cities, has a few big box gyms like 24 Hour Fitness and Crunch Fitness. There's small group workout options like OrangeTheory and CycleBar. And then there's always CrossFit (not that there's anything wrong with that.)

Roseville just didn't have a gym designed for the athlete-type. The type that leans into a team. The type that sees the value of practice and improving yourself overtime (pun intended). That type that's been in that environment before.

When LEAD started, I knew I wanted to create a place for the former athlete.

It's always been a part of the plan.
