Member Spotlight

When Tom is not gallivanting in Fiji, being the creepy guy in the back of live sports broadcasts, walking his pooch around the neighborhood, or sticking a Giants jersey on the Rocky status in Philly, Tom is busy trying to find creative ways to get more weight on his back squat bar.

Strong Tom (formerly known as Tom Capra) has been one of our most consistent members for the past year, and his improvements in both metcon times and strength weights is proof on what a positive impact that has had. Tom has dropped almost 20 pounds since joining us last June, and looks to continue his progress … as long as we can find him some thinner and heavier plates for his deadlift bar.
