Tim Crough

timcrough.com

It's a funny thing that happens to nerds like us, who reflexively resent jocks: Our reflexes start to go, so we look around for a jock to help life feel a little more like a Rocky training montage and a little less like a Liz Lemon date. Tim Crough knows from jocks, thanks to his strength-training gig at St. Thomas Aquinas High School, where he conditioned football players for maximum impact. The University of Kansas exercise-science grad is so coachy, his voice-mail greeting instructs you to "make it a great day." That verbal high-five made us laugh the first time we heard it, but then we figured, well, why not make it a great day, you know? On a well-populated schedule that includes race-car driver Scott Tucker as a client, Crough also meets inexpensively with the exercise hopeful at Mission's Sylvester J. Powell Community Center. Sometime between the third set of kettlebell swings and the second set of dumbbell push presses, Crough made it a great day for us, and we've been going back ever since. We're not about to box Apollo Creed, but thanks to Crough, we've won a few fights against stasis and atrophy.
