Some of you may have noticed that it has been quite some time since the last update on our site and social media. I wanted to take a moment to let you all know the status of The Strength Cave and what we have been up to since we last touched base. First, let me say that we are excited to be back online! We are ready to provide you all with great coaching and content once again.
Many of you know how TSC got started but let me give you a short recap of how we got to this point. Daniel Bove founded TSC in 2015 as an outlet to let his fitness and sport science related ideas flow. His blog became a resource for his friends, family, and clients to learn and interact. Through the connections he had made as an undergrad, his career as a CrossFit coach in Philadelphia, and in graduate school at USF, the site gained popularity.
I met and became friends with Daniel shortly after he created the original site. After some time, he recruited myself and a few other graduate students to help create content for the site. We had great success in growing our community over the year that followed. We accomplished this through our blog posts, selling tasteful/amusing t-shirts, and coaching our diverse group of athletes.
So why did things go radio silent all of a sudden? Well, the simple answer is that we just got too busy. Daniel got a job in the NBA which meant that this project had to take a back seat to his new career. Similarly, Jeff took a job in the MLB, Chris started physical therapy school, and Ryan started a PhD as OSU. Daniel made the decision to suspend TSC until he had more time to devote to the site.
This brings us to the resurgence of TSC that I am happy to report to you. We decided to make some changes in order to keep our company going. Daniel realized that bolstering his career in the NBA is his number one priority (with good reason). So, both he and I decided that it would be best if I took the reins and managed the company going forward. Now that doesn’t mean that Danny is no longer involved in the process. As you will see in the About Us section of our site, he is still listed as a founder and coach here at The Strength Cave. He will still have a major impact on TSC through his coaching, writing, creativity/artistic prowess, and all around awesomeness. However, I will be managing the company much in the same way that Daniel did in the past.
So what does that mean about the future of TSC? Originally, Daniel didn’t have the intention of making the site into a business. As I mentioned before, he just wanted a site to write about his thoughts and musing with respect to fitness. However, I see the potential to make an impact in the fitness industry with this website.company. We will strive to become a trusted resource by coaching athletes, and informing coaches/athletes to the best of our ability. This is the vision I have for The Strength Cave.
I maintain a passion for the science and research that helps us to grow as fitness professionals. This is why I am continuing my education to earn a PhD in Exercise and Nutrition Science. However, I am also quite passionate about the practical side of things. How useful is understanding the science if you can’t apply it practically? So, I wanted to create a business where I could use my knowledge, research, and experience to help others reach their fitness goals.
Over the last couple of months I have invested a good deal of time into overhauling the company. I established a client base, and started making connections in the fitness community. Although the new site has been up and running for a month or so, I wanted to wait a while before making this post to ensure that all aspects of the site were running smoothly. So please take some time and explore the new site. I hope you’ll get to know more about our philosophies, and the resources we may be able to provide.
We are glad to be back and we look forward to helping you all reach your goals!
