Opening our doors in November 2014, this unique gym is centered around quality training. The classes are small to foster a family environment using the modalities and principles our trainer, Susan Moore, has mastered during her years training the U.S. military. She believes that all people deserve the training necessary to move well, increase strength, sharpen focus, and gain mental toughness that are essential for optimal quality of life. She will not only teach you these skills, but also educate you in the whys and hows along the way. There is only one word to describe how you will feel as a result of this training: better.

Come try what "better" has to offer.

Getting to know our Member of the Month:    Roger Campbell

Roger, Roger, Roger... He’s unassuming, humble and witty as hell. He always, I mean always has a good attitude. When he’s not touring the globe for work (wink, wink) he comes in every morning. He made sure that we were hooked up with an incredible sound system for our new place and we hope he knows how grateful we are for not just taking care of our audio needs but for his being a huge part of our family in general. In case it’s not clear, WE LOVE YOU ROGER!

 

1.      How long have you been training at Better 

Since September of 2016, I believe. (By September he really he means August).

2. Who or What made you decide to start at Better ?  

My Tacoma-based trainer retired, and I wanted to find a gym on this side of the bridge.  To be honest though, my trainer and I had become complacent, and I wasnt getting fitter or stronger prior to her retirement.  Rather than looking for another one on one trainer, I wanted to find something that held me a bit more accountable.

3. What are your long term goals?

Id like to stay healthy and active for as long as possible.

4. What surprised you the most about yourself since you’ve started at Better 

 I LOVE the group interaction.  After working with personal trainers for 10+ years, I thought that working out with a group would be difficult.  However, the group of people training at Better Gym are amazing!  They are welcoming, nonjudgmental, funny, and supportive.  

5. How do you stay so motivated?

My motivation originally came from family history  My dad had a heart attack when he was 40.  Now its a desire for long term health and happiness and the ability to annoy my kids into their middle age.

6. Occupation?

I run a manufacturer’s representative firm.  We represent US manufacturers in the audio business internationally.

7. What is your favorite music to train to  

Im partial to classic rock and alternative, but enjoy anything with a good beat.

8. What is your favorite lift or movement ?  

 I really enjoy the circuit days (Wednesday).  Four rounds of ten or so exercises  and the fact that the trainers know and can explain WHY were doing each exercise in a particular order.  

9. What is your least favorite lift or movement? 

I don’t think I have a least favorite movement. However, it bothers me when I feel I finally have the correct form for a particular exercise, but then the next time I do it it’s like I’ve never done it before!  Frustrating, but challenging.

10. How would you describe your experience at Better?

In one word:  Better!  In more than one word, its an amazing place, staffed and frequented by amazing people.  Its been positive, motivating and effective.  I look forward to many more years of getting stronger and fitter at Better Gym.
