Healthy | Strong | Fast

Strength 2 Strength (S2S) offers a unique approach that tackles injury resilience, movement efficiency, explosive performance, and comprehensive health, training any athlete in any sport. S2S has created a system that addresses compensation — dealing with the pain and tightness that athletes get when it comes to the stressors of sport so they can maintain a robust body and continue playing at a high level. They do this through efficient sprint technique, agility, and executed lifts so athletes can perform at a level they never thought possible while also maintaining a healthy body.

world-class COACHING

UPSWING athletes have access to world-class resources and support. Tommy Flanagan and Gavin Class are just two of the many expert coaches at Strength 2 Strength that athletes will be able to meet and train with.

Tommy Flanagan founded S2S in 2016 with the goal of teaching and training athletes to excel at movement, balance, explosion, speed, power and strength. His mission: Transform athletes' bodies and minds so they can reach their reach full potential. Tommy was a stand-out athlete at both the high school and collegiate levels, earning numerous awards playing high school football, including All-State, All-Colorado and League MVP. At the college level he gained All-America status.


Gavin serves as a Strength and Conditioning Coach to all athletes at Strength 2 Strength. He played football at Towson University and then went to train primarily high school lacrosse athletes under Jay Dyer. After almost 3 years with the Teams’ USA Lacrosse Strength Coach, he pursued training at the collegiate level completing an internship with the University of Southern California’s Strength and Conditioning program. Gavin then went on to solely train the Men’s Basketball team at the University of Tennessee Martin as a graduate assistant before coming to S2S.
