If you've been around the "Wellness" arena for a while, then you've likely heard this question (and answer):
Question: What's the best program?
Answer: The best program is the one that you'll stick to :)
Yeah, we get it. Consistency is important, but it's also only a piece of the puzzle!
There are plenty of charlatans out there selling bogus advice that sounds too good to be true. (10 minute booty workouts, 6 minute abs, eat only plants, eat only animals, etc.) And guess what? People stick with these programs all the time.
Adventure, Community, Education.
These are the three Core Values from which Axistence was created. Chances are, if you're reading this, you probably share at least one of those values :)
On Saturday, September 16th we're going to dive a little deeper into the COMMUNITY!
We're hosting our first ever FREE community workout event where we're inviting anyone in the area to come learn about what it means to train for adventure.
After 10 years in the fitness game, we've learned a lot... For example, Do you need to be able to do deadlift your bodyweight in order to summit a mountain? What about pull-ups or push-ups? Do you need them to be "adventurous"? The short answer is no... but when you do indeed possess those skills, you're going to have a hell of a lot more fun on your outdoor pursuits!
At Axistence, our philosophy is fairly simple. We're not trying to re-create the wheel when it comes to fitness. Instead we like to study what works from a variety of methods.
Since long before we opened our doors, we've frequently asked ourselves this question:
What principles develop REAL WORLD STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING?
Then we've asked ourselves this follow-up question:
How can we take those principles and combine them into a program designed for the "Adventure Athlete"?
In asking ourselves these two questions, we've evolved what we call "The Axistence Method". Over the last decade we've learned a lot about what works and what doesn't. We've also continued to refine our methods so that we can continue delivering results to our members.
Side note on the definition of an Adventure Athlete:
A human with a curiosity to find out not only what's around the next trail, but also curious about where they can take their own fitness level. They're not necessarily training for a specific competition, but instead, they'd rather be fit enough for anything life throws their way. They want to say YES to adventure.
We hope that the Adventure In The City event will deliver the following results:
- Locals meeting like-minded folks in their community who care about both fitness and adventure
- Learn a few new techniques to incorporate into your fitness routine (or start one)
- Discover local businesses who are aligned with values similar to your own
- Get a solid training session!
Although the event is FREE, spots will be limited. Please RSVP via the Eventbrite link HERE.
If you're interested in volunteering at the event, or you're a local business that would like to be a part of it, please email firstname.lastname@example.org

Yes. We’re squatting again. We’ll also do push-ups again. We’ll do pull-ups again. Then we’ll do cleans again. And then we’ll do (insert movement here) and we’ll do them again and again. Why?
I understand the desire for folks wanting to do something different everyday. It’s a novel way to workout….but it’s no way to train. If we are really looking for results and we really want to get better, we need to apply a similar stimulus to the body on a regular basis so it has a chance to adapt and change.
Our coaches research and report on all things regarding fitness, adventure and the community within.
