Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy

A good coach is content to be in the background, working hard behind the scenes, and allowing the athlete to enjoy the spotlight.

The mission is to help each athlete reach their full potential: to be the best lifter they can be on the platform, and to be the best person they can be off the platform.

The gym is a place to work hard. Each day of training should be as fun and as challenging as possible.

Every day is a new opportunity for every athlete to gain more confidence, strength, speed, balance, and technique.

Each workout should be tailored to the athlete's individual needs. Every rep is important. Focus on the one in front of you.

Staying healthy is just as important as getting PRs.

Everything is about being consistent in training. Openers should be destroyed. Everything else will take care of itself.

A good athlete should be coachable. A great athlete should be humble.

"Coach Jones gives me the confidence I need to coach my son."

Susan Friend

Coach and mother of Hutch Friend
4x USAW National Youth Champion
USAW National Youth Record Holder

"I signed up for Coach Jones' Coach Mentorship Program four months ago, and it has been well worth the money paid. At the time I signed up, my family was moving from a great gym with experienced coaches to a location with few weightlifting resources. I knew I would be coaching my son myself, and I was nervous about this. My son has achieved great success in weightlifting (4x Youth National Champion), and I was not confident that I could train him by myself.

Coach Jones has been an amazing mentor. Every week he reviews videos of my son's training and gives me specific things to work on. He also sends videos of exercises that I can use to supplement my training plan. Most importantly, though, Coach Jones gives me the confidence I need to coach my son. He listens to me and reaffirms the things I am doing right and makes gentle suggestions to help me develop my son as an athlete. Coach Jones doesn't believe in "cookie cutter" training plans and treats every one of his athletes as individuals deserving of individual attention and advice.

With Coach Jones in my corner, I am confident I can successfully coach my son. If you are a coach looking for a world-class mentor, Coach Jones will be worth every penny you pay him."
