The Top Strength Coaches in San Luis Obispo County
Andrew Wickham
SLO Strong Founder

Be the Strongest Human You Can Be.

Strength isn't just physical, it's not just mental, it's an all encompassing characteristic of human behavior and what makes you who you are.  I believe that the stronger you are physically, the stronger you will be mentally, psychologically, emotionally, and as a human in general. I've spent my life pursuing different avenues of fitness: Football, Baseball, Triathlons, Spartan Races, Powerlifting, and Strongman.  I've been in shape and out of shape.  My experience through life going from fit to fat to fit again helps me help you achieve all your strength goals.

Bradford Young
Owner - The Lab

My philosophy is simple. Strength Through Movement. Modern living has led us towards a life of fast food, desk jobs, perscription medications, and a severe lack of physical activity. At some point in our lives, we begin losing the ability to perform basic human movements typically as a result of injury, aging, or a sedentary lifestyle. I believe that strength and health go hand in hand. Whether it be physically, mentally, or emotionally, a strong individual is a healthy individual. I take pride in teaching proper human movement patterns so that our clients can implement them not only during training sessions but in real life scenarios as well.
