  • Athlete of the Month

    By Coach T | In Athlete of the Month | on December 14, 2017

    December’s featured Athlete of the Month is not actually a client, but my very own handsome husband. I want to honor Dave this month as it’s a very special one for him. On Thursday, December 7, he turns the BIG 50!!! I can’t believe that I’m married to a 50 year old! Who am I […]

  • It’s A Tradeoff …

    By Coach T | In Training | on November 4, 2016

    Team TGA, Setting goals is EASY. Now accomplishing them, that’s a totally different story. Whether it’s a professional goal you have for your career or a physical goal like weight loss or increasing your strength, there’s something you need to know about goals that may help increase your success rate. It’s a TRADEOFF……. Instead of […]

  • Simply Deadlift …

    By Coach T | In Training | on October 27, 2016

    Team, I love the conventional barbell deadlift. When it comes to raw strength, there is no other exercise quite like it. The deadlift is essentially a hip hinge pattern. It’s amazing to me how many people struggle with the hinge. The ability to hinge is a basic human movement. Unfortunately, our culture relies on poor […]

  • Shoot for the GOLD!

    By Coach T | In Training | on August 3, 2016

    TEAM TGA, The opening ceremonies for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro will be this Friday August 5. Over 10,000 elite athletes will represent 206 countries to compete in 42 Olympic sports. While we probably all missed our Olympic gold medal opportunity in life, Nike Co-Founder Bill Bowerman said it best, “If you […]

  • To Swing or Not to Swing…

    By Coach T | In Training, Uncategorized | on February 8, 2016

    Team, Say “YES” to the Kettlebell Swing, the love child of a hip hinge and an explosive hip extension. It might just be the most perfect conditioning exercise that exists. Can anyone say, intense calorie burn, core endurance, and a nice tight BUTT all wrapped up into one awesome exercise?? It’s called a SWING for […]

  • Happy New Year!

    By Coach T | In Training | on January 1, 2016

    Team, Happy New Year! One training session down for me, about 274 to go! I recognize that January 1 is a day of reflection for most people, myself included. Today I thought about all the things I accomplished and all the goals I reached in 2015. Opening our new Arlington Heights training facility was definitely […]

  • Why Strength Train?

    By Coach T | In Training | on July 29, 2015

    Team, Strength training is for EVERYONE. Some people may argue that lifting heavy weights is dangerous. I’m here to argue that being “weak” is dangerous. (My one disclaimer-lifting heavy weights with poor technique and an unstable core can lead to injury and is not allowed at Training Ground Athletic) There are no machines that can […]

Beginning Monday, March 2, 2015, we will be testing your PRs or Personal Records for our three major lifts (straight bar deadlift, back squat, and strict overhead press). If you are unfamiliar with weightlifting terminology, a PR is the heaviest amount of weight you can lift […]

  • The “Total Athlete”

    By Coach T | In Coach T's Corner | on May 3, 2014

    4/27/14 Hi Team, Hope you all had a great weekend! If you usually train on Saturday mornings, we hope you enjoyed your extra day of RECOVERY! Yesterday we participated in Northwestern University’s 1st Strength Coach Clinic. I was one of only two other women strength coaches in a weight room dominated by men. It was […]
