I want to serve, I want to come alongside all of these owners to push them forward in training, in strategy, in tactics, to make them reach places they never knew they could, to teach them to know themselves.

Tammy Friedt

Being in the fitness industry for over two decades, my desire to help people succeed fills my soul. Opening a gym allowed me to continue to help others.
