Foundations

FOUNDATIONS
Our Foundations program is where athletes new to working out or just getting back into fitness, who may not be ready or feel comfortable diving into group classes, go to learn how to perform basic movements and get familiar with our training. All the major lifts and exercises will be taught from scratch with an emphasis on technique and safety.

You will meet 1-on-1 with a Coach for a total of 5 sessions over the course of 2 weeks. The sessions are appropriate for most able-bodied adults, and no baseline level of fitness is expected. Each session will cover 3-5 new movements and then end with a workout that can be scaled up or down according to your abilities.

Together, we will create a solid foundation so you can enter group classes with a basic technical understanding of our movements & exercise philosophy, and with the confidence that you can tackle any challenge.

You will also spend time with a coach to discuss basic nutrition; the real foundation any worthwhile exercise and wellness program. Depending on the Foundations program you select you will receive a 30 or 60-minute nutrition consultation, an InBody biometric scan to determine your body composition baseline and help us establish attainable goals, and Gold plan members will receive a customized 4-week nutrition plan and accountability coaching. Either way, it is an easy approach to nutrition and wellness.

What to Expect

Learning the basic athletic wisdom of starting slow, prioritizing movement quality, and training intelligently can drastically improve your experience and reward you for years to come.

Therefore, your workouts will:

  • Focus on technique and movement patterns before heavy loads – Proper form must always come before even moderate weight and we are firm believers in teaching proper functional form before asking you to lift a weight your body may not be ready for.
  • Be challenging, but full of celebration, not judging – Egos and criticisms are completely unwelcome.
  • Teach you what weight you should start at for various lifts.
  • Identify the need for considerations that can be made for movement restrictions, etc.
  • Provide basic protocol around the class structure and equipment use and care.
  • Familiarize you with pre-class mobility movements, proper stretching, and cooldowns.
  • Teach you how to listen to your body and understand that successful training is a long-term cycle of gradual improvements.

This is one of the best decisions i made in my life, great trainers and team members, positive energy. I thought i made a mistake the first time i walked in, due to my weight, thinking i would be judged, but i was wrong. I always stepped aside during runs and most obstacles, you need to see me now, and my energy. I love this place and i will recommend to anyone who wants to change their lives.read more

I discovered The Endurance Factory through Groupon last May and thought it would be something different to try to get in shape and improve my health. I was nervous because I am not very athletic and I didn't know if I would be able to keep up. It has been 6 months and I am so glad I have stuck with it! Ken and Tiffany are both fantastic trainers who will support you and help you reach your goals no matter what they are. I am usually intimidated when working out in group settings because I am worried about being judged by others who are more fit than me. I have never once felt that way at TEF. Everyone has been so welcoming and encouraging since day one. If you have tried traditional gyms and have been unsuccessful I would definitely recommend The Endurance Factory. They will help you get the results you are looking for in a supportive, positive environment!read more

The Endurance Factory is a community of incredible human beings. My husband and I originally joined to prepare for a Spartan Trifecta, but it didn’t take us long to realize we would be here for much longer. Ken and Tiffany are incredible coaches who genuinely care for their athletes. It is a welcoming atmosphere where all are pushed to succeed. They work with people at levels and points of their fitness journey. If you have a goal and are willing to work hard they will be behind you 200%.read more

When I first learned about The Endurance Factory I honestly didn’t believe it was a gym for me. I don’t run. And I definitely have never done an obstacle course race. But then Ken started promoting the Strength In Numbers program and I figured I would give it a shot. Best. Decision. Ever. Not only did I learn about the importance of strength training from a coach who is so invested in the success of his students but also developed friendships with women of all fitness levels. Since joining The Endurance Factory, I have more confidence not only in what I can do at each class but when I can accomplish in my daily tasks. Things I never thought I could accomplish I now have goals to sore past. The classes are designed to encourage success in everyone. The coaches are supportive and enthusiastic about what they do. They have truly created a family out of everyone to comes into the gym!read more

This gym is family owned and operated and the family vibe resonates through the building's pores (yes, cinder blocks and drywall have pores). When you come in, you are welcomed not by a sales pitch, but by coaches who genuinely want to help you get stronger and more confident.Like many of the people who joined The Endurance Factory, I was looking for a place to train for Obstacle Course Races. If that's your thing, this place is perfect. I had a goal to do the Spartan Trifecta in 2018, but I also wanted to do fewer burpees in races. Both Ken Peluso and Tiffany Palmer are world class obstacle course racers who love to coach and pass their knowledge on.The Boot Camp classes are varied and challenging for all levels. I started out pretty out of shape and have worked my way into being pretty fit over the course of the year. Even with the loss of 25 lbs. I describe the classes the same way. They're challenging, but doable. Ken and Tiffany don't let you dog it or fail. They get the most out of everyone.There are tons of gyms in the area. Many of them have great coaches who will help you get stronger and give you personal attention. However, for me, four things set The Endurance Factory apart from most of those gyms. First, the owner, Ken Peluso, is my coach. He knows my race schedule, my injury history, my targets and goals. He knows how to get me where I want to go. All I need to do is show up and put in the work. Second, the gym is welcoming and family oriented. Everyone is welcome. Kids can train with their parents or hangout with the other children while their parents workout. Experienced racers workout beside and encourage first timers and non racers. The regulars are friendly and everyone is welcomed their first few classes. Third, we all work hard, but we also have fun. Tiffany Palmer is an elite obstacle course racer and one of the coaches. She pushes us hard in class, but she incorporates games to make the workouts more fun. Fourth, the gym also hosts potluck cookouts and has added perks to the membership package like Sunday morning Yoga classes and meal plan options. These are things that members want and ask for. They aren't just read or heard and "taken into consideration." They get done. I'd never been one for strength training before joining The Endurance Factory. Lifting weights is a new thing for me. I joined on Opening Day because Ken didn't get pushy with his sales pitch. He told me what he planned to deliver to members and showed me how I could benefit from the facilities. That was good enough for me to give it a try. It's now 10 months later and Ken has delivered on everything that he said that the gym would be. He's also been a great coach who has helped me through injuries and in the process helped me build confidence in my abilities. And I'm not the lucky, special one. Everyone at The Endurance Factory gets "the lucky special one" treatment.read more

Joining The Endurance Factory (TEF) was one of the best decisions I ever made. A few months ago, I tried out several gyms in the area in hopes that I would find the perfect facility. I was looking for a gym that would not only challenge me mentally and physically but also align with my values. My hope was also to become a little beast.After trying out several gyms, I came across TEF. I had wanted to challenge myself for a few years with Obstacle Course Racing and was so excited to come across this amazing gym. I contacted Coach Ken, the owner, and signed up for a free class. Coach Ken welcomed me on my first day, showed me around the facility, had a genuine interest in my goals, and helped me get through my first workout which was exactly what I was hoping for - physically tough with a healthy dose of mental toughness. I am now a few months in and I am so happy that I made the decision to join. So, why join The Endurance Factory? What sets them apart?1. You will be working with AMAZING coaches who genuinely care about you and your progress. Coach Ken and Coach Tiffany are kind and intelligent and will motivate you to move forward towards your goals even on those days where you feel like you can't. They are positive, empowering, and authentic. You can tell that helping others reach their goals and overcome their obstacles (physically, emotionally, and mentally) are truly their passion. 2. The community is awesome and supportive. You will be working side by side with people who celebrate your successes and encourage you through your areas of opportunity. The environment is positive, encouraging, and just a happy and fun place to be!3. The workouts are TOUGH but worth it. You will see results! Just DFQ!4. TEF is affordable and you definitely get way more than you pay for and there is no sales pressure whatsoever.5. You will get ripped. Keep up the great work team TEF! You're making a difference.-Jenny I.read more

The Endurance Factory has been a very fortuitous find for me. In a moment of insanity, I registered for a Spartan race. I've described myself as more of a Squishy Arts Nerd...not an athlete. Not a couch potato, but SO not an athlete. I met Ken shortly before he opened his gym. He gave me a tour and hope that maybe, with 7 weeks to spare, I could pull off this race.I, a staunch anti-morning person, am up & in the gym for bootcamp with Ken or Tiffany by 6 am. They push me hard enough to be really challenged, but not so far that it becomes disheartening. They cheer me on for my accomplishments & I've never felt judged if my weights are a little lighter or if I'm a little slower than more seasoned athletes...and those seasoned athletes cheer me on as well.I leave feeling accomplished & still having plenty of energy to take on my day.I joined because I did not want to fail miserably at the race I still cannot explain why I signed up for. However, I've fallen in love with this & the race has become secondary.As of this writing, I'm nearly 40 & have had incapacitating back issues over the last 20 years. I thought "athlete" was solidly out of my reach. It's not.I'm both lucky & grateful to have found such genuinely caring & supportive coaches to bring out the Athletic Arts Nerd.Oh, and those seasoned athletes? They get challenged, too 😉read more

This gym has everything you are looking for! Ken and Tiffany are extremely knowledgeable and they are always willing to help with form or any other questions you may have. The classes are tough, but you receive motivation from the coaches and the other people taking the class. I can't remember the last time someone finished a workout alone, not because everyone goes the same pace, but because the people who finish early jump in and do extra reps. It's a small gym that provides a family atmosphere!read more

A group of friends and I were looking for a place to build fraternity and to be physically challenged. When I learned about the Endurance Factory, I signed us all up for a 2 hour training session with Tiffany Palmer. Our expectations were exceeded at every level! With Tiffany's experience and great personality, and all of the cool equipment, we pushed the limits of our physical bodies and strengthened our brotherhood at the same time by encouraging each other every step of the way. It was an excellent experience. Thank you!read more

Every time I come into the gym I know I am going to leave exhausted, with a smile on my face. It also has a huge range in terms of equipment.

The Endurance Factory is a pretty cool place and the only true obstacle course racing gym I could find in the area.Ken is a cool guy and won't give you a high-pressure sales pitch. You can do month-to-month or choose a long-term contract for a lower monthly rate. During my 4 month search for a gym, I got really tired of other gyms pressuring me to lock into long-term contracts and upgrade to their personal training, specialty classes, etc. Ken just invited me to check out the gym, asked me what I was looking for and showed me what they have to offer. Very laid back, no pressure.Being an OCR athlete, Ken really knows his stuff and he's stocked the gym with everything you need to train for OCR racing. I usually take the 6 AM SGX class lead by Tiffany, which is always challenging but fun. She pushes us hard but knows our limits. She too is a world-class OCR racer, so it's pretty cool that I get to learn from the best. All the members I've met are super friendly and supportive of each other during the workouts. All in all, it's a great place! Given the small class size and the attention I get, it's a bargain for the price.read more

I've been training with both Ken & Tiffany for a little while now, & I am so glad I found the Endurance Factory! They both genuinely care about me & my progress. They push me without judging or disheartening me (I think we've all had *that* trainer before... �).I always feel welcome & supported by not only Ken & Tiffany, but everyone else in the classes too. They help me modify exercises if I'm having issues with my long-standing injuries or if it's just a little past my current capability, and no one makes me feel bad or judged.I'm working harder than I've ever worked before, I love it, & am proud of the results I'm seeing already.I feel very lucky to have found a gym & coaches who have helped turn this Squishy Arts Nerd into an Athletic Arts Nerd.This is a great place to be & I really recommend it!read more

It's easy to find a trainer who can lead you through a workout session. What isn't easy, is finding a coach who will push you past your limits not only physically, but mentally as well. Ken Peluso knows what it means to endure. He knows how to tap into your inner athlete and competitor and he will make sure he conditions you, body and mind, to conquer the goals that you set for yourself. If you tell him that you want to accomplish something, guaranteed he'll get you there, just as long as you put in the work. His workouts are fun, out of the box, and they will keep you guessing. You'll find yourself trying to predict what he'll throw at you next. Like, literally. He actually may start throwing things at you. We all know that sometimes the hardest moments actually happen outside of the gym and Ken is always ready and available to offer his overabundance of knowledge and most importantly, his friendship. I have never worked with a coach like Ken before and I promise that neither have you.read more
