About Green Strength

Green Strength’s mission is to build strength, enhance performance, uplift-consciousness, and tune-in, both mind and body. We believe in eating real food, practicing primal strength training, and playing with mindful movement. The Green Strength community led by Lucius Tirey IV is about going back to the basics so you can move forward – in strength, movement, freedom, and life.

“After years of experimentation, I began eliminating non-efficient methods and practices that have plagued our kind all over the world from reaching their true, full potential, honing in on what actually makes us stronger, healthier and happier. Supplements, splits, programs, diets, and exercise progressions out there generally miss the mark, and destroy the art of achieving TRUE HEALTH.

Longevity is key for any human to achieve optimal strength and health. We have no time for setbacks, injuries, or exercises we are not physically prepared to do. HEALTH and STRENGTH both mentally and physically are what we are after. Green Strength principles are based on proper progression of human movement, intensity, frequency; the whole sha-bang! We start at your current level of fitness, training each client based on individual needs and goals…Green Strength is for everyone, and we know no two people are the same.  You should be treated as such.

Invest in yourself by joining the Green Strength movement and help rebuild our kind while we continue to reestablish what it means to move – think – perform – AND LIVE!”

-Lucius C. Tirey IV
