Move. In many ways. There isn’t a single worthwhile reason to not embrace strength.

Now let’s go into detail…

Bodytribe is Northern California’s hub for modern physical culture, where intensity, camaraderie and compassion create the ideal philosophy for the best relationship you can have with your body. ¬†Our ongoing mission: to increase comprehension of the role of strength and well being in self actualization and our relationship to the community. That’s our idea of health… a holistic understanding of intensity and movement, combined with embodiment and nutrition. Physically, it’s as simple as The Big 3: Train hard, eat well, rest hard. Metaphysically, it is so much more.

It’s playtime. Hard, intense, empowering, life changing playtime! Although based in Sacramento, our network spreads across the country, with workshops and clinics from coast to coast, and our online show Strength Rituals.

Get up. Get down.

We’re one of the very few places in Northern California that exists as a sanctuary for a philosophy. Not just a training hall for like-minded folks, but a dojo based on personal and tribal empowerment through movement. But this stuff is for anyone. Competitive athlete? We’ll make you better, in fact we’ll put our years of experience against anyone in Northern California. But if you’re new to movement and physical challenge, we welcome you to an exciting new journey. Many of our tribe have only recently embraced a passion for action in their muscles and minds as well. Somewhere in between? Prepare to increase your abilities and your awareness of who you are.

So we welcome everyone, but our unique program design requires that everyone get to know us and our concept before getting started. Technique and movement understanding are first priority for us, so let us introduce you to what we do.

Who we are
A community of smiles.

A community of smiles.

We are the modern Physical Culture, what we often call the Physical SubCulture. The body is a tool for greater purpose, not just the end result of your training. Therefore, training is the means to an increase in the quality of life through movement. The Physical SubCulture is the modern organized effort to incorporate centuries of physical rituals and beliefs in exercise and movement into an integral part of all aspects of culture. Whether through lifting heavy objects of all shapes and sizes or finding new ways to move the body by itself, the Physical SubCulture movement is about strengthening the spirit through pushing the limits of the body.

  1. I just wanted to say congrats for the awesome way you guys train. I have been trying to develop my own program like this for a while. Optimal functional capacity! Is there any way that I can plug in to your workouts from South Carolina. I would love to learn and grow along side such workout enthusiasts as yourselves.

    Thanks for the inspiration,

    • Hi Jared. You should either come visit for one of our strength camps (or, heck, just come visit as many folks do from around the country), or you can help us organize a workshop out that way. We’re working on a North Carolina workshop now and we have one on the books in Alabama in July. I’ll post the details soon. Oh, and we’ve got some DVDs that might be interesting.

    I stumbled on you while watching some Olympic weightlifting history videos on youtube. I love this sport more than words can say, and from all the way up here in Saskatchewan, thanks for the videos and for sharing your training philosophy.

    Keep Calm and Lift on!

    Hi Bodytribe,

    So psyched to have found you guys. I’m a native of the Sac area, I just recently changed my undergraduate focus from pre-physical therapy to strength and conditioning and I’m eager to learn all I can about the field. Look forward to meeting you all in person!
