About Us

5 Pillars of TCT:

1.) Calling - We train “in context”. By this we mean that all the training we do is done for the ultimate purpose of helping people do what they are called and created to do.

2.) Connection - We believe in the inseparable connection between a person’s spirit, soul and body. This is why we emphasize training all aspects of the person. We do this by incorporating sessions intentionally focused on motives, feelings, habits, mindsets, etc... We believe that when the inside is right, the outside will be right.

3.) Community - We don’t allow isolation. Isolation is the first step towards frustration and failure. Community is a net of safety that keeps someone from falling into the common traps of wrong beliefs, lack of motivation, and no accountability. To train here, you must connect with others - either a personal trainer or a group.

4.) Coaching - Everyone does better and goes harder when they are coached. Coaches ensure safety, help maintain a focus on the end goal, and refuse to let people quit. Because of our community focus, everyone who trains here will be coached. Even our coaches are coached so they are constantly pushed to be better!

5.) Commitment - Success hinges on commitment. We demand a high level of commitment simply because we care about you and we care about results. Training is hard, and for it be effective, one must be consistent. For one to be consistent, they must commit to the process. The reason people fail is because they simply give up. Commitment is a resolution within that says, “I will do whatever it takes.”

We believe in the inseparable connection between a person’s spirit, soul and body. This is why we emphasize t raining a ll aspects of the person. We do this by dedicating an entire session dedicated to training the soul (mind, will and emotions). In a group context we examine motives, feelings, habits and their roots, mindsets, etc... When the inside is right, it will manifest on the outside.

Obesity in America is rampant. This is not to the exclusion of the church. Yet we are called to be set apart and different, so how does the obesity epidemic in the Body of Christ reveal spiritual deficiencies, misplaced priorities and skewed perspectives? Jake A. Merrick understands that the Body of Christ is comprised of individual bodies, and the strength of the whole will be dependent on the strength of the parts. Despite our faith and good intentions, when our bodies are weak and broken, we will not accomplish all that God has called us to. In Bodies of Christ, Jake A. Merrick dives into the middle of this sensitive and often avoided topic of degrading physical health in the church. He examines the spiritual roots of physical deterioration in the church and the biblical reasons why it cannot be overlooked. Then, rather than offer another “weight loss secret”, he applies an approach that returns to the fundamentals of our faith to reverse this destructive trend in the church.
