Tuesday, March 8, 2016 - Ric Garcia and Steve “Coach Fury” Holiner have accepted the offer extended by Original Strength to become the first instructors to be called Lead Instructors. As Lead Instructors, Ric and Steve will play a pivotal role in the development of the OS Certified Coaches seeking to become OS Instructors.

“Ric and Steve have consistently demonstrated not only excellence in their presentations as instructors, but have also demonstrated tremendous heart. They serve and love. These two attributes are the only two requirements we ask of our instructors, along with knowing how to effectively communicate OS as it is intended. We see both of these standards (to love and to serve) shining through them in workshops, their work, their communications and in their smiles. Both have a way of teaching, coaching, and caring, we hope all of our instructors strive to achieve” said Tim Anderson, founder of Original Strength and echoed by Geoff Neupert, co-founder of Original Strength, Dani Almeyda, co-owner of Original Strength and John Usedom, co-owner of Original Strength.
