Welcome to Training for Warriors - Boston
TFW Boston – Training for Warriors Boston Mission Statement
What is TFW Boston?
Training for Warriors Boston is family, fitness, and philosophy. It is a group training system created through developing elite athletes for the UFC, Olympics, and the NFL. It uses strength training to accomplish many goals in and out of the gym, not be the goal in and of itself. It incorporates mobility and corrective exercise, speed and agility training, sprinting, and our most primal and powerful movements. All of these elements mixed with expert and motivational coaching effectively brings out the warrior within.
What is TFW Boston NOT?
TFW Boston is not a quick fix, an ass-whoopin, or a fad. Everyone in fitness says that their workouts are the hardest, and that they can get results the fastest. But there’s more to fitness than losing weight as quickly as possible, more than laying in a puddle of sweat after your workout. Fitness is habitual. Fitness is a lifestyle.
What does TFW Boston Stand For?
TFW Boston stands for building people up, not breaking them down. It’s about building muscle, losing fat, and feeling great. At TFW Boston, we value results, not gimmicks, and have people finish a session sweating, smiling, high-fiving, and feeling stronger, ready to take on the world.
Subscribe to TFW Boston and be the first to receive the news as we post content, improve the website, and host fitness jams around the city. You can swing by our “Meet the Coaches” page and get to know the Senseis you’ll be working side by side with during your warrior workouts.

It’s that time of year again: everyone is dropping their cigarettes, picking up a new gym membership, and tucking away extra cash. As always, one of the most common resolutions is to lose weight or just get into better shape. Unfortunately, dropping pounds also tends to be one of the most dropped resolutions.
Here are the top five tips for getting that weight off
and keeping it off:
5. Set specific goals
To say you want to “lose weight” or “get in shape” is all well and good, but it’s tough to know when you’ve actually reached that goal or if you’re pushing yourself enough. You are much more likely to succeed if you tack some numbers onto your goal. Do you want to lose 15, 20, 25 pounds, or to drop a pant size? How long are you giving yourself to get there? In order to avoid disappointment, a good rule of thumb is that 1 pound a week is reasonable, 2 pounds a week is tougher but still attainable.
4. It’s exercise AND diet
A lot of people look at getting in shape as just hitting the gym more. However, watching what goes in is more important than making sure you use it up. In my personal, unscientific, experience somewhere around 75% of losing weight is in watching your diet. Check out the TFW Boston Lean-In-3 and Ripped-In-6 programs to get plans which cover both diet and exercise.
3. Track your progress
Find a way to keep track of what you’re eating and how you’re exercising. I use the Lose It! App, but there are plenty of others which may strike your fancy. More importantly, be honest with your app and don’t neglect all of your snacks. If you’re held accountable, even to a few lines of code, you’ll find that you start making some better decisions. Maybe you don’t need that leftover Christmas cookie after all…
2. Make it a lifestyle change
Once you go through the effort to get in better shape, why wouldn’t you want to stay there?! This isn’t a diet; this is a new phase of your life. Just like when you move into a new house and start taking a new route to work and going to a different grocery store, make your new eating and exercise habits a part of your normal routine. Pretty soon, this will just be how you live your life.
1. Don’t go it alone!
Getting in shape is so much easier when you have a support group who is going through it all with you! Check out the TFW Boston New Year’s Resolution Challenge. You will find a group of people who are trying to reach the same goals and who will hold you accountable and give you support the whole way through. Together, we can do it!
