Jen and Marcus took over the old Shed space after it went under and a friend in Uptown called to tell them about the opportunity. Originally from the Bay Area, they had moved to Arizona with the hopes of trying to open a gym, but saw the space in Uptown and knew that it was meant to be. Jen, Marcus and their 4 year old moved within the month and started True Grit Society.

Marcus has been in the fitness industry for 25+ years and has an unparalleled passion and love for fitness. Jen has been teaching Spin for 8 years and also teaches Circuit Training. Together, they have opened a neighborhood community gym that offers a diversity of fitness classes in the Uptown area.
