  • A message to the ladies out there looking to get strong!

    A message to the ladies out there looking to get strong!

    To be honest, I don't know what strength training will look like on you. The truth is you'll never look exactly like me... you're not ME. You don't have my body type, my frame, my genetics, my exact training routine, my exact diet, my ability to recovery, my hormonal profile, etc. There are a LOT of factors that dictate what our bodies look like, particularly how they respond to stimulus (lifting weights, running long distances, sprinting, etc). But I don't want you to look like me.. I want you to look like YOU - The best version of you. So when women ask me "will lifting weights add muscle mass to my body?" I answer "i hope so!!" You may build muscle easier than some people ....

  • The truth about pain, chiropractic and perfect form w/ Dr. Moses Bernard (podcast)

  • What is St. Pete Barbell Club?

    What is St. Pete Barbell Club?

    Within Elevate St. Pete, we have a USAW (USA Weightlifting) sanctioned club known as St. Pete Barbell Club. We are one of the only full-time olympic style weightlifting programs in the St. Petersburg area. Our club serves the St. Pete, Clearwater, Tampa Bay area.
    What does St. Pete Barbell Club do?
    Often the term "weightlifting" gets confused for just simply lifting weights (you may be thinking bench press or deadlift). However, olympic weightlifting actually consists of just two contended lifts: the snatch and the clean & jerk. While we do perform squats, presses, deadlifts and other types of lifts in our training, they are simply preparation towards the two main lifts. The olympic ....

  • To SWEAT or to LIFT?

    To SWEAT or to LIFT?

  • The dreaded prime-time workout rush (not at Elevate!)

    The dreaded prime-time workout rush (not at Elevate!)

    Picture this... You have your gym time all planned out. You know what you're going to do, what muscles you want to hit, which pieces of equipment you'll need to spend some time on. You get out of work, battle traffic, only to arrive at the gym the has a full parking lot. Once you finally get inside, you beeline it to where you want to start your workout. But guess what, some jack*ss is hogging the space (probably not even using it correctly). Now you are frustrated and debating if you are even wanting to be there. This is the typical peak-time scene in most commercial gyms. You know, the LA Fitness, 24 Hour Fitness, Anytime Fitness type places. And if that's your scene, good for ....

  • A fast track to success with personal training

    A fast track to success with personal training

    One on one. Private sessions. Personal training. Whatever you want to call it, working directly with a coach or trainer can be incredibly valuable. While we approach the group training at Elevate with the idea that we will deliver the most beneficial training possible for a variety of people, 1-on-1 training is hard to beat. The great thing about Elevate's personal training service is the care and attention to detail that our coaches put into each session. Our first step is to meet with you and take inventory of your overall goals (whether it's general fitness, looking good in your wedding dress, being bikini-ready all year long, gaining muscle, etc). We also want to find ways to ....

  • Elevate's 28 Day Reset Program (available now!)

    Elevate's 28 Day Reset Program (available now!)

    Elevate's 28 Day Reset program is an amazing opportunity to get on the right track for your goals! Here's a quick overview on this program.
    WHY?
    We created this program because there are two primary types of people coming to Elevate: 1) People who are generally new to a structured workout routine 2) People who have been consistent with exercise in the past and need to get back on track In both cases, we find the best course of action is to have an initial period of time where the accountability and support is HIGH, and the approach is comprehensive (physical activity, structured nutrition protocols, and healthy habit development). The Reset checks all of the boxes!
    WHAT
    So what all ....

  • The REAL Sweat Equity (Time+Consistency=Results)

    The REAL Sweat Equity (Time+Consistency=Results)

    Imagine you have your own personal bank and, in it, you deposit your sweat. You deposit your hard work...every rep of exercise...every mouthful of nutritious food...it all goes in the sweat bank. If you could do this day after day, month after month, you'd have a lot of equity built up. Just like having an emergency fund in your savings account, this can protect you from unexpected twists in your life (getting sick, taking time off the gym, having a "cheat" meal). At Elevate, we want to get the point across that health and fitness goals simply come down to making one decision at a time. If you make (mostly) the right decisions for your health and you do that consistently over time, you ....

  • Fixing your back pain & staying fit

    Fixing your back pain & staying fit

    Low back pain is one of the most common physical setbacks in America. In fact, studies show that more people have low back disc problems than not --- it's simply a matter of if you are showing symptoms. Do you "throw your back out" a couple times per year? That's not normal. Do you have "tight hamstrings?" That's not normal. Do you avoid bending over to pick things up from the ground? Again, not normal. The truth is, we work with people at Elevate daily who experience back pain or discomfort. Some of them nearly gave up on exercise before seeing us. Many of them have been able to move forward, get stronger and avoid the recurrence of that pain. We want to share some of our insight ....
