What is Primal?
Our philosophy is rooted in three simple principles:

➤ Eat real, whole food
➤ Embrace a positive mindset
Further, we believe improving your health should not be done in isolation, but rather in the company of a fun, supportive community.
If you’re looking to run on a treadmill or do bicep curls, we’re not the best fit for you.

— The primal tribe —
In April 2016, we hosted the Tactical Strength Challenge for the third time. We had one of the largest groups in the world and saw nearly every participant set a new personal record. More importantly, our community raised more than $10,000 for the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation! Special thanks to Five Shore Media for the video.
This gym is absolutely amazing. I’ve been raving about this place to my friends and family ever since I started back in May. Everyone is friendly, approachable and positive – we all come in to work hard but we have a little fun along the way.Tess M.
CPG has challenging workouts, fun people, and smart coaches who offer 1-on-1 like training.Haley B.
Training at CPG is like having a personal trainer in a small-group setting. It’s ruined all other group classes for me due to the personalized attention.Patty M.
CPG has an awesome community focused first and foremost on proper technique and well rounded health/fitness. With top notch instructors, it’s a gym where a person of any fitness level would be comfortable.Andrea J.
When I describe CPG, I always talk about the high quality of the coaching – the intelligent thoughtful programming, but also the careful attention to correct movement – and the focus on the primal philosophy.Tom B.
My favorite thing about CPG is the amount of support I get. I can’t be trusted to work out on my own, and Sean and Grant lead each training and give everyone one-on-one feedback and support.Mary B.

CPG has group training classes that focus on strength (using mostly kettlebells). In addition to amazing coaching, (i.e. they actually care that YOU get stronger / fitter / better), it’s one of the best group of people I’ve ever been around.Eleanor B.
