Everyone has different goals, strengths and injuries so cookie cutter programming just isn't going to cut it if you're looking to break through plateaus, advance in your sport, or come back after an injury.

That's why Sheppard Strength takes a holistic approach to our clients: we get to know who you are, what your goals are, and your pertinent medical history through a free initial consultation.

We take that information and create a personalized program for you so you can reach your goals in the most efficient and effective way possible.

You don't have to be a Mississippi area athlete or gym to have access to Sheppard Strength: all you need is an email account, access to a phone or Skype, and an appreciation for well placed funny memes in our communications.
