Training Philosophy

We don’t embrace ‘bro-science’ over real science.

How you train, matters. Every workout no matter what your goal is, should start with a solid warm up along with a few critical movements that engage the core and connect the mind with the body. Then, and only then should we train.

Goal-Specific Programming

Whether you’re an athlete that requires sport-specificity or a recreational body-builder with unique training requirements during certain phases of your competitive season, we’ve got you covered. In our Small Group Personal Training classes, we’re able to customize your workout to ensure you’re always progressing in the safest and most effective manner possible.

We’ve trained over a hundred men and woman who went on to become service members, police officers, fire fighters, D1 scholarship athletes and even a few special forces trainees. Using the principles of periodization and sport-specicificity, we can customize anyones workout plan to meet the needs of any client that walks into True looking to improve their performance.

True Atmosphere

Guaranteed you will be greeted by name and welcomed to every single session as if you were part owner of the facility. That’s the kind of atmosphere we create for our fun, family-friendly and challenging environment.

🫠WTF is a Dumbbell Overhead Triceps Extension?
🧠Dumbbell Overhead Triceps Extension is an isolation exercise that targets your triceps muscles. Properly done, the triceps extension helps strengthen and tone the back of your upper arm. Modifications and alternatives are also available to help prevent injuries, keep your form in check, and add versatility to your workouts for when you get bored🫶

🫣 What should I avoid while performing this exercise?

❌Avoid ‘Winging Out’❌
When the elbows are ‘winging out’ and pointed outwards, the focus isn’t on the triceps. Instead, the biceps tend to have more engagement, thus reducing the effectiveness of the overall exercise. In order to keep the triceps isolated and fully engaged, the elbows MUST be pointed forward.

❌Avoid Partial Reps❌
Partial reps can occur when the weight gets just a bit too heavy for full completion of the exercise. Not only will you be thinking that you can lift heavier with a partial rep, but the muscle doesn’t get the chance to go through the complete range of motion (think eccentric and concentric movements), thus lowering your ability to actually build muscle.

❌Avoid Tilting your Head Forward ❌
The Dumbbell Overhead Triceps Extension can feel like a strange movement, especially with a weight behind your head; keep practicing, try different variations, and start with lighter DB’s if needed. Standing in front of a mirror will allow you to see if you are using good form and prevent any sudden shifts in the elbows and head.
