A Sacrifice That’s Worth Your Time !

Personal fitness is tough. It’s a struggle. It’s a sacrifice. It’s easier to eat what you want than to eat healthy. It’s easier to relax on the couch or hit the snooze button than get up and workout. Why do we do it ? Why do we choose the more difficult path vs the easy one ? One word… results. You do it for personal health. You do it to look good in your swimsuit. You do it to play with your children. Whatever your reason may be, you workout to get some kind of result. Arianne knows all of this first hand, and her results after training with our team member Joaquin Sullivan are proof it’s worth it !   ? Email us to Info@SDStrength.com for a Free In Person…

Get Better Hoops !

Dear Clients of SDSW, We would like you all to meet Joel Jones Camacho or “Jo Jo”. He is a good friend and client at SDSW and recently retired from professional basketball after 15 years playing overseas (most recently for Capitanes Del Arecibo in Puerto Rico).

It is no secret that Puerto Rico recently endured a horrific natural disaster. We all go through disasters in life and since working with Jo Jo on the SDSW training floor since 2012 we have seen him persevere through many challenges.

Become A New Person

Jamie's Story In Her Own Words ..... "I've struggled with my weight for what seems like forever and little over a year ago I decided to take a leap of faith and trust someone to guide me in the right direction to better myself! And here I am now a whole new person, different outlook on life and the thought that I will be able to live longer for a little girl who knows that her mommy is her world! The saying "without struggle there is no progress" is totally true. I have struggled, cried, hated life for a split second but all my struggles have lead me to who I am right now, today! I can't begin to thank the AMAZING man behind my mini success my awesome trainer,…

How to Get Past that Plateau !

Michelle Duke started her weight loss journey on her own. Through a diet change and cardio she was able to drop 20 pounds but found herself stuck at 20. That’s when she came to me for guidance on how to get past that plateau. Michelle was new to resistance training as she had only done cardio on her own. She was ready and willing to learn whatever it took to keep the scale moving. She learned fun things like how to flip tires, do bear crawls and swing kettlebells but also learned how to safely do big lifts like deadlifts and squats. Michelle always brought a positive, can do attitude to her workouts especially on days where we got to do her favorite shoulder workout! Her great attitude and positive…

Want A Lean Physique ?

“Cardio! Cardio! Cardio!” used to be the Holy Grail to achieving the desired "toned" look. Aerobics classes, running, spinning—workout routines for women have historically included gobs of cardio. But in the last few years, there’s been a huge shift in fitness as women flock to the weight room.   Strength training has proven to be incredibly beneficial for women. It helps build lean mass, improve overall strength, and it makes it easier to achieve and maintain a lean physique, if that’s your goal. There is nothing like feeling physically strong, especially when you’re often expected to be physically weak. Watching your body and your strength transform as you become increasingly capable of doing things you never thought you could do is absolutely priceless.   It’s our wish here at San Diego…

Always Improving to Get You Moving

Very recently three of our Coaches (Left to Right Tommy, JD, Cristina) completed RKC-Level One; an in depth, three day, 24 hour seminar addressing the handling, training, and instruction of traditional kettlebells. The seminar has a 35% fail rate and all three SDSW Coaches exceeded standards and stood out. At SDSW we still believe in going above and beyond to bring value to our clients through continuing our education and development as Coaches. Helping people move, feel, look, and perform better in record time is what hard style kettlebell training is about and it's safe for all ages and fitness levels. A good RKC Instructor knows how to meet the client where they are and progress  them safely and quickly while not forgetting to have some fun! While kettlebells are…

Power Couple Transformation

Newlyweds, Hector and Molly began working with SDSW trainer Joaquin Sullivan for their wedding. They got started early and didn't wait until the last month or 2 to make a change for the better, because quick fixes, diet pills, and extreme exercise plans don't usually deliver, especially in the long term.   They have collectively lost over 80 lbs, nearly 20 inches of unwanted fat around their waistline and still going strong.   It's time to join the SDSW Team. Allow one of our highly skilled and very passionate trainers to help you achieve those personal goals. Don't delay, Contact Us today !  

Johnny Is Killing It @ SDSW

Johnny used to be on a bunch of medication for diabetes, blood pressure, pain, and heart burn. He used to be over 300lbs. He got the lap band surgery and hit a plateau at 270lbs and THAT was the moment he signed up at SDSW with Coach Ben Landry. That was the moment Johnny Tavernier screamed out to the world that "enough is enough and I am taking by my health back"! Less than 6 months in the program, he lost another 60lbs of body fat and gained 10lbs of lean, solid muscle! He's more athletic, agile, flexible, powerful and strong. He has more stamina and one thing is for sure: he is no longer back at who he "used to be"!

Strong Mom, Wife & Executive !

Vickie started training at SDSW with the simple goal of moving better, improving her posture and getting stronger. Her energy levels were low and quality of life takes a hit when our vitality isn't feeling complete. She wanted to look and feel great in her own skin and tried a lot of different exercises on her own, but the results weren't happening. She knew she needed someone tough and knowledgeable, yet patient enough to guide her. She started working with Coach Ben Landry and applied the consistent effort necessary in the gym and the kitchen to achieve some extraordinary results:   ✅ Improved Flexibility, Posture & Energy Levels ✅ Gained 10 lbs. of Solid Muscle ✅ Lost 10 lbs. of Body Fat ✅ Achieved Multiple Reps on the pull-up and push-up; Two of…
