TPS was started with one thing in mind, to give our clients the best.
The best training environment, the best equipment and the best coach/coaches. Our philosophy is if a customer spends one dollar, we must give them two dollars in value, each time, every time.
Back to how we got started, way back in 1999, Murph was working at a few different gyms, as well as coaching boxing and kick boxing classes at Rich Angelo’s Karate Academy in Everett. Rich offered Murph the opportunity to take over the boxing/kickboxing portion of his business for the right price. This led to Murph no longer working at any other gyms, and bringing personal training clients and his training partners to the new Total Performance Sports inside Rich Angelo’s Karate. This was great because our training style didn’t really mesh in commercial gyms anyway.
The original TPS was just a 900 square foot weight room with a bunch of heavy bags and boxing equipment in it. It was pretty crowded to say the least! It wasn’t fancy, but it had the BEST training environment anywhere.
