It’s Happening. Tomorrow is the day that I know I and many, many of you have been waiting for, for a very long time. The day Urban TGM officially opens. The day Tracey’s dream comes true. And it’s really happening.

Tracey has worked tirelessly and nearly nonstop this week, cleaning, scrubbing, changing lightbulbs, and then changing them again, doing her magic on the floors, and too many other things to name. But trust me that Tracey’s blood sweat and tears are in every inch of the studio. The studio that she designed completely on her own, from a big open gravel pit of a space.

The lobby is a work in progress as Tracey takes the time to curate the space and make her vision a reality. She is a mad scientist, a designer and an artist and thinks about every little detail. But because it has to be just right and she is not going to settle, it will take time for everything to find it’s home. And we are working at the mercy of others during the holiday season, so some things we wanted and expected to be done are not done.  That means that every time you come to the studio in the next few months there will be new things done, whether they are big and obvious or little added details. Every visit will bring a new discovery.

But the studio is the really important thing. And the studio is everything you want it to be. Hot. Dark. Steamy. Crazy. The music is Tracey’s best mixes, punctuated by the downtown sounds of sirens and train whistles. It is everything Tracey wanted it to be.

And most importantly, Tracey wants it to be a safe place for EVERYONE. Her privacy, and yours, are extremely important to her. And so we have a new policy at Urban TGM. Absolutely No Photos or Videos are allowed to be taken in the studio. And while we welcome you checking yourself in and sharing your love for TGM on social media, we ask that you respect others privacy and not check in or tag anyone other than yourself. We hope everyone is as happy with this new policy as we are, and that everyone respects it.

Our sincerest hope is that you will give yourself the gift of experiencing the madness for yourself!  The schedule is up on MindBody. Partial schedule next week and the full schedule starting Monday, January 4th.  If you have ANY questions (including class time requests) please ask me!

See you on the mat soon!

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
