Rest day fun: these days, rest days are pretty boring (and far too often! haha) I wish rest days meant time at the river, lake, beach, or pool!

What I love about my Tribe?: I love the sense of caring that exists here! You immediately feel that the coaches truly care about the people, and are invested in them so much more than just as athletes or "customers". Plus there are tons of ways to get involved and grow your community- whether it's through Breaking Down the Walls for ladies, yoga class, men's retreats, or other events that come up throughout the year. My husband and I definitely are excited about being a part of this Tribe!!

January DMA Winner

Our DMA Award Winner for the month of January is Molly! Molly is one of the sweetest and hardest working people you will ever meet. She is one of the sneakiest best athletes at The Tribe.

Congrats girl for receiving this award.

REST DAY FUN:
Days I’m not at the Tribe I’m typically training or coaching gymnastics (my own version of fun!) but outside of the gym(s) you’ll find me biking, hiking, golfing or just exploring.
WHAT I LOVE ABOUT MY TRIBE:
I love the everyday things that make up the extraordinary Tribe family. It’s about getting to watch someone go full send on a workout that was practically written for them and celebrating their strengths while the rest of us are dying on the floor. It’s about seeing the gym kiddos charge at you full speed for a hug. It’s about the mentorship and guidance from everyone on fitness, to faith, to family, or work...even if I just met them. It’s the 5:30pm crew pushing the limits and never backing down. Ever. Man I could go on and on but the hundreds of memories and things I’m grateful for everyday make walking through the door of the Tribe feel like such a privilege!

Caesar Morales

SEPTEMBER DMA Winner

Our September David Molak Award Winner goes to.... Caesar Morales

This guy is just a ball of kindness and smiles, oh and he's pretty fit too! Take a read and get to know him a bit more. Be sure to show him some love and give him a shoutout at the gym! He is a bit of a class hopper so you never know when you're going to see him. He likes to keep us all on our toes.
Favorite Movement: Clean and Jerk

Least Favorite Movement: Toes to bar (I'm not good at them, and they always end up breaking down during a workout)

Favorite Cheat Meal: Burger and Fries (Tycoon Flats, Chris Madrid's, Armadillo's, and Burger Boy)

Rest Day Fun: Rest days are a challenge for me (I hate resting lol), but anything outdoors with family and friends, taking the kids for a walk or to the park. 

What I Love About My Tribe: The community by far. The coaches and members are amazing, and it's great being surrounded by a diverse, like-minded community.

NOVEMBER DMA WINNER

Robert Welch

Our November David Molak Award Winner goes to.... Robert Welch
If you want to see consistency and hard work, look no further. This guy embodies these traits with such humility.
FAVORITE MOVEMENT: Oddly enough, I like tall box jumps. It may be because I feel like a kid in this 41 year old body when I do them. Also like power cleans to move some weight around.

LEAST FAVORITE MOVEMENT: Definitely muscle ups and handstand walks because I can't do them. I know I'll never be mistaken for a gymnast!

FAVORITE CHEAT MEAL: This is tough one. My diet probably consists of too many cheat meals, but I'm always game for a good burger or some mexican food. Hard to beat a plate of enchildas at Blanco Cafe and my wife would probably be upset if I didn't say Soluna.


REST DAY FUN: I have two boys so my rest days generally consist of little rest. I love to do anything outdoors whether that be on the water somewhere or in the country with my wife and kids. Always game for a new adventure.

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT MY TRIBE: It seems to be a common response when people are asked this question, but it's 100% true that the welcoming and nurturing culture that Nick, Ed, and team have created at the gym is unbelievable. We are all being pulled in a million different directions in our lives, but one thing that's consistent is I can come into the gym and get my butt kicked with a incredibly diverse group of really inspiring people. The struggle through the workouts makes you forget about everything that is going on outside of the gym, even if it's for only an hour a day. The days I can't make it to the gym feel incompete, and I always look forward to getting back in there.

Our first DMA Award for 2022 goes to Alandra! This award is very well deserved as Alandra is a hard worker, continuous learner and kind heart. Take a look and get to know her a bit more!

I love that the tribe is Faith founded and believe that with god everything is Possible I truly see that the people at the tribe love what they do and so do I

The positive attitudes of the Tribe flows thru everyone including the students who attend class…all willing to help and encourage. The coaching is so good it even helps a 69 year old follow the proper exercise techniques for maximum performance and avoiding injury.


Our April DMA Award goes to Amy Arguello! Amy and her husband Eric have been here about 6 months and she has been CRUSHIN' IT since she walked in our doors. You can find her almost every weekday morning working on her olympic lifts (she's been doing a strength program consistently for several months now!) and then typically attending the 6:30am class. We wish we had a before and after to show you all the progress she's made over the past few months in her lifts because it really has been a huge improvement! Keep up the good work Amy!
