Ryan McCarthy-True Strength Fitness

Hey There!

This is Ryan McCarthy, owner of True Strength Fitness, located inside Fitness by Design – 

I hope you enjoyed the long weekend if you had one and spent some time remembering our service men and women.

Today I wanted to share with you a quick motivation secret that has helped me tremendously in the past.

That is the power of your peers.

As humans we weren’t created to be alone, we are very social creatures who not only crave interaction and relationship, but often times thrive in it.

(Yes I know there are times when you like being alone to recharge, same with me…)

…BUT my point is that when you are teamed up with someone who is working towards the same goal, you will always work harder, and you will have a built in support system.

There is something very empowering about standing shoulder to shoulder with someone who you know has your back. This bond is forged strong by getting in the trenches and putting in the work together.

Someone to pick you up when you are down, someone to push you when you are tired, someone to remind you why you started when you feel like quitting.

You both want each other to succeed, and will help each other get there, and that is a beautiful thing.

This only happens when you surround yourself with the right people.

On the contrary, have you ever been part of a team that was negative?

In my opinion that is even worse then being alone, because you have to listen to those “haters” and Debbie downers who hate life and make excuses for everything.

I used to be part of a team where I felt I was surrounded by negativity. It was toxic and it freaking drained me to empty…

…I started to doubt myself, my ambition tanked, I didn’t believe I could accomplish my goals because others thought it wasn’t possible. I was letting their mindset set limits on my success.

Well, separating myself from that and surrounding myself with positive driven people was the best thing I could have done.

Now I am driven and working towards my goals everyday, if I’m off my game I have mentors to dust me off and set me back on my grind.

And that is what my team, Team True Strength is all about.

We run small groups no larger than 4 people per session, to build community, to give you a support system, and to build your confidence while you chase down your health and fitness goals.

Here are a couple of our teammates working hard together:


I am very proud to be a part of such a positive team and environment, and that is what I strive to create here.

Should you ever want to experience True Strength Fitness, know that you are welcome 🙂friends2

So, grab a couple friends and come see what all the hype is about.

Have an awesome week and enjoy your Tuesday!
