We don’t hire trainers. We hire coaches.

Most of our team hold undergraduate and/or masters degrees in an exercise related field, with many having previously participated as NCAA coaches or athletes. We hire experienced humans and educated them on our core values of: having a passion for strength and exercise, showing an innovative curiosity, being a team player, and demonstrating the ability to engage with clients as coaches. Hardpressed Strength coaches have mastered the art of our programs to keep you safe during the fastest workout of your life.
