Sorry, I'm hijacking T's blog for a minute. I hope you don't mind!

I've known some hard working people in my life, but I've never met anyone who works as hard as Tracey. She's a single mom, an entrepreneur and an artist. She is driven to create. Her hands are never idle, and her mind is never quiet.  She's made no secret of her ADHD and her battles with mental illness. When T is in her darkest times, creating; be it wearable art, clothes, canvases, a cutting edge studio or her Very. Own. Workout!; is what saves her.

Not many people would have the guts (or balls) to walk away from a successful business that they literally created out of nothing, because they were creatively stifled. Not many people, when faced with a fork in the road, would choose the road less traveled. Most people would stay on the chosen path, even if it meant not fulfilling their dreams. T's dream, since creating TGM, was to be downtown. And she is making that dream come true, in just a few months!

The Warehouse has been a great break this summer. When everything is stripped away, you discover what really matters. That's what we discovered at the Warehouse this summer. And T will be taking that with her to her new space and finally creating the place she's always dreamed of.

This summer hasn't been easy. T has been creating. A Lot! And my accident has meant I haven't been to class nearly as much as I've wanted. Luckily I get to talk to T every day or else I probably would have gone to class even if I couldn't do anything, just to get that energy! But I'm finally coming back to class this Saturday and I'll have at least a few more weeks to cram in as many as I can before T takes a hiatus to focus all of her attention on the downtown digs. She will not only be making every creative decision, she'll be doing much of the work herself. Her love and passion and madness will be in every inch of it, and it will be totally worth the wait!

I am So looking forward to getting on my mat Saturday, and hopefully seeing many of you!

Thanks for reading,

Created in 2010, the first hot, dark, anti yoga one hour workout in Columbus Ohio. 2017 NOW REFINED and in the pitch dark, one red light . Not just hot, but steamy wet, 75 percent humidity, and based from hot power yoga vinyasa flow. NOT typical yoga. Innovative, intense will redefine, lengthen, burn 1000 calories plus if you like to go to the edge. SOULFUL, DISTINCTIVELY DIFFERENT, NO MACHINES. CORE BASED. VIBES, MUSIC and so powerfully sexy and empowering


LOCATION right off of 670 and Third street exit into downtown Columbus, in fact it is the first light make a left on Chestnut and right next to Oh Pizza and Brew ....117 East Chestnut Street is where you enter and check in...(lots of meters and lots around and Sunday downtown free parking all meters) our terrace is on Third Street and the first billboard you see sits right inside of it.

WHO IS TRACEY GARDNER AND WHAT IS TGM?Tracey Gardner Method abbreviated TGM is the intense fitness workout experience create by TRACEY GARDNER. Undefinable, the opposite of a bright, cold gym. The opposite of any fitness class because it is up to you and how hard you want it..No pressure, no competition, no being called out, no talking, no hands on adjusting...Just an escape to feed your soul. We sculpt, lengthen, define and build endurance, strength and stamina using our body weight, squeezing, activating and engaging every muscle from the fingers to the toes. Every class is different and created by Tracey through her series of injuries, depression, addictions. It is designed for everyone! Especially those who love a good runners high but hate to workout. It is different in so many ways and gives you the courage to keep going when all you want to do is give up. You can take as many breaks as you need and it takes at least 10 classes to understand the technique...but be patient, once it clicks it will give you a body you never thought you could get, your mind becomes clear and the crave becomes an addiction.

TGM IS NOT HOT YOGA, TGM IS NOT YOGA or PILATES or anything else you have ever done. You have to experience it to understand it and the evolution is constant as Tracey continues to create, tweak, reinvent every six weeks because she gets bored before anyone. TGM is the result of her being treated and medicated for her depression, anxiety and severe ADHD. After 6 weeks of the right doctor and medications TGM was born in 2008 and has continued to evolve and it is the best it has ever been.The struggle is real and part of her story and creation.
Her energy is contagious and she will make you crave working out instead of dreading it...

Entrance is on Chestnut and there are tons of meters and paid lots around but ask us if you have any specific questions


it's all about the music FOLLOW ME ON SPOTIFY "Tracey Gardner" will have my favorite beats that I am into now up soon....
