At the Cave, we believe in being strong in every direction.

If training only involves linear movements, there are gaps.

Mace and club training fill in those gaps.

We still  squat, bench press, deadlift, snatch & clean on a regular basis plus do odd object training.


Very few people are accepted into our training program.

We do not do any advertising, so “tire-kickers” & “price-checkers” don’t interrupt the  training that our serious members are doing.

I am very selective about who I will train., just because you have the money doesn’t mean you are entitled to train here.

Not everyone survives the cut; if you get slack, you are gone.

100% effort is required on everything we do.


Whether we are lifting, pushing, jumping, or doing  bodyweight exercises, you must strive for excellence.
