Tyrone at Choice Fitness has been my trainer for the last 6 months and it was the best decision I've made for my fitness. I knew he was good during the evaluation when he was able to pinpoint my areas... of weakness that are not easy to see to the untrained eye. As a physical therapist myself I knew where I was weak already and was confident in his abilities when he pointed out the same things. Tyrone has been a great motivator - always pushing me to improve and continually keeping the workouts different, dynamic and fun (though hard!). My goal with training was to stay injury free and so far I have been and have noticed an improvement in my strength. Also, Tyrone is a great person to chat with and our mutual love for the Tar Heels was always fun to chat about. Thanks Tyrone for all you do!

The Bull City Strong Project was founded in December, 2015 when we opened The Choice Performance Center in Durham, North Carolina. Our mission, then as it is now, was to bring the Triangle community together in support of local charities through fundraising and volunteer endeavors. Each year our goal is to select local charities and using our community base raise funds annual for the charities. In 2016, we raised over $11,000 for Girls on the Run of the Triangle.

Our 2017 ...supported charities for the Bull City Strong Project transcends race, culture, and gender. Girls on the Run of the Triangle is dedicated to uplifting and empowering young girls. Merrick-Moore Backpack Buddies seeks to provide food to students where 98% are economically disadvantaged. 1 of 4 children are at risk for hunger in North Carolina. The Durham A.S.P.C.A. is dedicated to the belief that animals are entitled to kind and respectful treatment at the hands of humans and must be protected under the law.

Our 2017 Bull City Squat Challenge is dedicated to supporting these three local charities. Up to 12 supporters will barbell squat to raise money. Join us in support of the Durham Community..

Let’s put an end to child hunger. Let’s support empowerment of our young women. Let’s take care of our animals who are such an important part of our everyday lives. Support the Durham Project.

I also had an opportunity to attend the 2017 Ohio State Strength Clinic in Columbus. Great learning from some of the best strength coaches in the US.

Awesome weekend visiting Rogue Fitness in Columbus, Ohio. Rogue is one of the top manufacturers of strength equipment in America. The racks, kettle bells, dumbbells, and weight plates are all from Rogue.
