We are about getting better, in every direction as fast as our biology will allow. We are about you doing what you want to do, and offer the tools to do it better, faster, simpler.
We offer a place to deal with like minded individuals. We have no preference on your tools, or your goals. We have no preference on your occupation or your income. We have no bias on your education or experience.
We are looking for open minds which will question anything and everyone. We are looking for open minds which are willing to put every belief system to the test, and move in the best direction for the task at hand.
You owe us no allegiance, you owe us no favor. You owe only yourself; we will help you if you ask in your quest to honor yourself.
We will ask you to fly your own flag now. We will ask you to make your path. If it so happens our trajectories and velocities match that is even better, but we will not demand adjustments.
I want you to join my tribe, but I need you to be your own hero.

Matt demonstrates a demanding pull up he calls a “corn cobb”
There is some really good stuff going with this movement, the lateral movement is something we don’t get a lot of. Try it out for yourself, if you are strong enough to do this i will wager it tests well.
