When you become a member of TLF, you can expect to receive four important things: accountability, community, challenging workouts, and a focus on health. Our team is committed to helping you stay accountable to your fitness goals, providing a supportive community that will encourage you along the way, challenging you with effective and dynamic workouts, and prioritizing your overall health and well-being.

TLF offers a tight-knit community dedicated to continuous self-improvement. While there are numerous options for exercise facilities, ours stands out as the best value rather than the cheapest. Unlike most 24-hour facilities where people aimlessly move from one machine to another without any structure or accountability, we provide structured classes with daily strength or skill training followed by metabolic conditioning. Within one hour, you will have accomplished something challenging for the day.

Our CrossFit Trainers lead each class, ensuring maximum efficiency and progress in the gym. This structured approach facilitates daily improvement and prepares you for a long and healthy life.

Mat and Bethany, our coaches, have drawn upon their experiences at various gyms to create our unique program. Our gym may not be fancy, but it's certainly effective!

"Great place to workout for anyone no matter where or what your fitness goals are.  Bethany and Matt have a vision for the direction of the gym and genuinely care about all the members.

The gym is a fun place to workout with a wonderful community feel that will challenge you and help you improve."

Anthony Zappa

One of my kids had a hockey tournament in town so I dropped in for a quick workout in between games.   Great gym!  Lots of room, new equipment, Rigs, cardio equipment, barbells, ropes, and basically anything a person would want to use.  Matt, Bethany and Jacob were all working with people.  You can tell they really care about the customers and clients.  They were expressly approachable, very engaged, very knowledgeable, and most important VERY FRIENDLY!"

"Love this gym!  I started out extremely out of shape and now I'm only a little out of shape.  This place is my second home, I love the people and the atmosphere and the working out."

Tim Nennich

This CrossFit community is great. The owner understands that people who work out here are looking more for functional fitness and less for trying to be a CrossFit games competitor. Super friendly members and convenient class times. Highly recommend trying this gym out if you are looking to get in the best shape of your life and have fun doing it!"

Conveniently located off of Highway 8 at the intersection of 61 and HWY 8.
