Our        ....

Short Answer to Why Garage Dawgs was Born…
Our son Noah.
From the day that boy came into our lives, he has changed not only our mindsets on health and fitness but more so the time and importance of what mattered most in life. We didn’t have two and three hours of training anymore.
We had 45 minutes (sometimes 20 minutes max) in between naps, running a full time business, and attempting to find some type of time to connect together. We needed to be able to lace up our shoes, take our unbrushed hairs to the garage and get a good enough sweat in to feel good. To move and then go about our day. Garage Dawgs has given us the freedom and outlet to be the best parents and coaches possible while still keeping a healthy level of fitness needed to continue to live within our best selves. Our hope is that we can continue to help other busy, on the go individuals find their own health and wellness… Whether in the garage, during travel, or outback while your kids play. KNOW that it is possible, you ARE worth it, and a little bit daily goes a long way towards a happier, healthier, sexier you.


Our        ....
