How it works.



Your body hates to build stronger muscle!

When you lift heavy things, your body "hides" from hard work by using momentum to take stress off the muscle. It is far easier to heave a weight than to move it slowly, and your body takes advantage of this to keep muscular fatigue to a minimum.


Your body will try to get through your workout without building muscle. Momentum during exercise allows for brief rest and decreases fatigue. Without proper instruction, your instincts will keep your workouts from deeply stimulating your muscles. 


Eliminate momentum by controlling speed.

Using ideal equipment, our expert instructors will help you "hack the system" by ensuring your body can't hide from muscle-fatiguing work. By controlling the tempo, you'll keep joint stress low and muscular effort high, so every rep is safe and effective.

Muscle is expensive to build, and to keep!

Our Team

StrengthSpace was founded in January, 2018 when Bryce and Matt decided to provide the Hampton Roads Virginia area with access to a more effective long-term approach to resistance-based exercise and the ability for physical therapists to privately treat their patients on their own terms.  As two Navy veterans, Bryce and Matt want to continue to grow their business in the region where they have spent the better part of the last 10 years.
