The Barbell Collective


Get strong AF without obsessing over what you look like.


The Barbell Collective is the place to be if you’re just like me.

>>> You love all things lifting + workouts; you just don’t want that to have to take over your life again

>>> You love feeling like you’re making progress + being consistent; and you want workout options for when life gets in the way

>>> Part of you loves having the game plan written out for you, but you want to be able to do other things you love like: sleep!, go for hikes, runs, and walks, go kayaking, explore other hobbies without letting gym & body obsession creep in

>>> There aren’t a lot of places for you to explore your relationship with your body, movement, and food without feeling out of place or misunderstood. Why does it feel like you’re arguing with everyone who doesn’t GET IT yet? And why are there SO MANY PEOPLE who don’t get it yet?!

>>> You actually want to be fit. You want to feel good & move well. Navigating the difference between those desires + separating that from diet culture feels hard and confusing sometimes.

>>> One “style” of movement practices bores you and yet you’re trying to find a method that makes you feel like “you’ve arrived.” But then you run the risk of feeling bored, boxed in, over it and then left searching for your “next best answer.”

If that sounds like you,
let's keep chatting πŸ™‚ 


You're probably tired. There's no way it's just me.


But lifting & movement is an important outlet for you.

Maybe you're more inconsistent than ever.
If we're being honest... me, too.

You're stuck somewhere between wanting to lift and wondering what's too much, what's not enough, and wondering if there's a way to get paid to nap.

You know a sane approach to lifting is void of "all or nothing", but after the past almost 24-months, even the middle ground of doing "something" feels harder than usual to manage.

You want to feel confident in your gym routine- there's simply not enough energy to waste worrying, wondering, & guessing your way through.


You want something that meets you where you're at each day, week after week.

You want to know that you have the option to go hard if you're well rested, or pull back if you're tired.

Maybe you're feeling bored by your usual lifting routine.


Maybe you're sick of waiting for your next bout of motivation to strike so you can get back to it.

If you're already getting into the gym, you might as well make sure it's worth your time.

You want to know that your limited brain space and energy that you're spending on your workouts aren't for naught.



Imagine being able to outsource the most complicated parts of your workouts so you can focus on what matters.

 

How much more brain space would you have for the other important things in your life if you never had to try and piece it together for yourself again?

 



TBC only opens for enrollment a few times each year.

The Barbell Collective is not "just another" workout option for you



 

 

The Barbell Collective blends three C's that are often missing from other programs:


Consulting:


Consulting takes place through the programming + True Coach.

Consulting is: “do this, this, and this and report back.”

Coaching is not consulting and many people conflate the two.

Sometimes consulting is all you need and in many cases, you need MORE.

Coaching can be the difference between executing the consulting portion while honoring all other aspects of your life + health + wellness and feeling like a failure and like you have to “start over again because you suck.”  Ya know? I know you know πŸ˜‰

Coaching:


Coaching is how magic happens. Coaching is how we explore your brain—why are you triggered? Why ar you working out? Why are you NOT working out? Is it working for you? Dos it feel good? How do you know? What about all the other shit in between? Do you know how that effects your time in the gym?

Like: you had a fight with your partner, work is stressful AF, and *gestures vaguely* EVERYTHING ELSE we’re all dealing with post 2020!?

Coaching is where we untangle your brain about all things TBC and beyond. All TBC coaching takes place in our private Facebook group.


Community:


Don’t worry- I used to think I didn’t “need community” either.

Turns out, I do- and you probably do, too.

I used to think “a community” was for desperate losers who didn’t have the self-accountability to get shit done without their hand being held.

And then, TBC laughed at me and showed me, time and time and time again, that community is one of the most special things we can allow ourselves to have.

The TBC community is full of women who are so warm, kind, understanding, and supportive.

This shouldn’t surprise me as much as it sometimes does: the women of TBC are my people, and our community is how we gather, and it’s truly the most special place on the internet.



TBC is for you if....

 

-You could probably keep winging it on your own because you're not totally a gym-newbie but you know you could spend your time/energy elsewhere

-You keep telling yourself you don't need accountability but... here we are. Don't worry, your secret is safe with me πŸ˜‰ 

-Feel like you should be working out more than you do, but aren't sure what to do or if it'll be worth it

-You KNOW there's a lot of BS out there, so you're nervous that this will be "just another BS workout program"

-You want a convenient, all-in-one program that includes warm-ups, mobility work, strength and conditioning all in one spot

-Don't like to feel like you're wasting your time in the gym, which sometimes leaves you skipping it all together because you're not quite sure what to do 

-You want to work hard and push hard, but don't want to spend every free moment trapped in the gym

-You know the basics of lifting with a barbell and other modalities. You've spent at least 1 year working with a barbell (either on your own or with a trainer) performing back squats, deadlifts, bench press, and overhead press.

-You are not new to navigating a weight room. You know where the lat pull down machine is and how to use it.

 

 



How it works:



The Barbell Collective
is a monthly membership program.

-You download a free app on your phone, called True Coach

-You get 3 lifting workouts + 1 conditioning workout + 1 recovery workout sent to the app each week

-Each lifting workout gives you 3 options to meet you where you’re at for the day; depending on your biofeedback, you can choose which option makes the most sense for you that day using our proprietary G/Y/R system

-You can mix and match each week as you see fit. This kind of structured flexibility is what will keep you consistent as your life (like everyone’s) continues to ebb and flow

 

What you may be  wondering about...

 

- You cannot fall behind in TBC. The programming is structured just like my gym was. You just keep on rolling. The workouts are programmed in such a way that you do not ever have to “go back” to “make up” for anything you may have “missed” due to illness, travel, or any other reason

- We do not follow one “method” of fitness. TBC uses, blends, and infuses concepts from all different fitness ideologies including but not limited to: powerlifting, cross-fit, body building, RKC, Animal Flow, MovNat, FRC (functional range conditioning), as well as conditioning concepts and practices. This is what makes TBC so unique- it’s an entirely non-dogmatic and unique approach to all things movement + fitness.

- It costs $129/month with a 4 month minimum commitment. Why? I literally can’t help you in less time than that. In order for me to contribute to women no longer bouncing around from thing to thing to thing and program hopping all the time, a 4-month minimum commitment gives me time to get to know you, gives you time to get to know me, and bakes in the time for you to get in, settle into a new normal, and begin to make, see, and feel progress that’s not defined by you obsessing over what you look like or stalking the scale for a .2 pound change *eye roll*

-After 4 months, you can cancel at any time. Many of our TBC members have been in there for literally years and I have the feeling you will love it so much you’ll stick around too πŸ˜‰

-Can I pause my membership? Nope. You’re not paying for workouts. You can find workouts for free on the internet. You’re paying to have access to me, my brain, and the community. You’re paying for coaching. You’re paying for someone to coach you through the “I want to quit” days, weeks, and even months. You’re not unworthy of being inside TBC just because your workouts are inconsistent or even nonexistent. You deserve to be a part of a community of amazing women + have access to coaching even when you’re “off your fitness game.” Pausing your membership, while it feels like it’s a huge bonus, is actually making you feel like you’re paying for workouts and you’re not. The TBC workouts are BOMB! And they’re the least important thing I deliver. I promise.

-You need access to a commercial gym or a substantial home gym. This includes access to at least: a 4x4 space to move your body, different sized DBs, a box and/or a bench, and bands. You do not *need* access to a barbell, but that would be ideal.

-TBC is not for beginners. Let’s define what that actually means: This cannot be your first lifting rodeo. You should know what a squat is- and you should be able to look at someone deadlifting and say: “that is a deadlift.” TBC will not be a good fit for you if you’ve never picked up a weight before or never navigated a gym on your own. Do you have to know everything about everything? No. That’s my job! πŸ˜‰ But you shouldn’t be a lifting newbie. You may feel like a fitness newbie (maybe because you feel like your body doesn’t reflect your time spent in the gym??) but you should have a track record of being inside of a weight room in some way.

-TBC is not your savior or pacifier. It’s magical but I’m not a magician. If you’re hoping that TBC will be “THE THING” that helps you fall in love with lifting, this is not for you. It’s not my job to convince you that lifting is fun- you already know it is. TBC is not for women who don’t have a track record of getting to the gym- it’s for women who are already working out and want to elevate their experience of themselves in a fitness setting.

Thinking about & completing your workouts should not be confusing or stressful

"Is it worth it? Can't I get workouts for free?"


Yep! You could totally keep getting workouts for free or figuring it out on your own.

But you're probably dead-ass sick and tired of feeling like you keep starting over and over again and getting nowhere pretty fast.

Free workouts aren't free- they're costing you a whole bunch. They're costing you progress, time, sanity, accountability, consistency.

How much stronger would you be had you not been taking the "free" route all this time?

 

You're not paying for the "workouts."


You can find workouts for free on the internet.

You’re paying to have access to me, my brain, my expertise, the curation, delivery, ease, and overall experience of being a part of TBC.

You’re paying for someone to coach you through the “I want to quit” days, weeks, and even months.

You’re not unworthy of being inside TBC just because your workouts are inconsistent or even nonexistent.

You deserve to be a part of a community of amazing women + have access to coaching even when you’re “off your fitness game.”

The TBC workouts are BOMB! And they’re the least important thing I deliver. I promise.









What the ladies of TBC are saying:





"....Best thing ever! I would pay so much more for all you give us! Physically, mentally, the whole gamut!"
-sharon


"It is so freaking good. I haven't once felt guilt, urgency, or the need to make up because I know I'm doing what I can each day and my compliance has gone way up! It meets me right where I'm at each week and I love it!"

-Breanna


"I was starting to beat myself up over being so "behind" with my workouts, then I flipped my thinking around. Out of the 10 (almost 11) months I've been a member of TBC, I've completed 7 months worth of workouts- and it wouldn't be possible without this supportive community."
