Since June of 2017, we have had over 2,500 individuals recovering from substance abuse walk through our doors and join us in a workout.
Temperance Training was founded to create a healthy alternative lifestyle for individuals suffering from substance abuse, providing those in recovery with an environment that supports healthy living using fitness to connect the mind, body, and spirit.
What we do
We offer free community based fitness classes to anybody with 24 hours or more of continuous sobriety.
How we do it
Passion. Community. Progress.
We work tirelessly with others to show them the way to outwork addiction. Within our facility(s) we have a breed of coach that overflows with passion to help others. This can only be done from the inside out, as our coaches have experienced similar struggles and understand what each person may be facing. Temperance Training is a "we" program, as we have recognized you don't have to do it alone.
Temperance pushes to create a community that chooses to outwork addiction through fitness and fellowship.
Definition - "Community - com·mu·ni·ty : A feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals."
Performing difficult tasks together inside of the gym, as a community, while coming together outside of the gym in fellowship, also as a community, brings us together to continue to maintain sobriety.
Progress is daily. Temperance Training coaches set examples by optimizing their life with goal setting and task accomplishment. This has carryover to everyone involved in our program as we lead by example. We have lived the life that our members currently struggle with, and understand what it will take to stay sober. We will continue to work together trying to better ourselves every hour, every day, and every year, while helping those around us do the same.
what it looks like
We believe that teaching individuals the 9 fundamental movements of fitness, and variations of those movements, creates a sense of accomplishment and allows individuals to do things that they may have once thought to be impossible. Ensuring that everybody is moving through exercises safely and effectively, we perform strength building exercises, followed by a Workout of the Day. On Sundays we do team workouts, during the week we perform individual workouts, both allowing individuals to grow within a thriving environment. Everybody coming together to accomplish difficult tasks, while still encouraging others to persevere, is truly a special thing to see and be a part of.
