Tara Getty is a co-owner and fitness coach at Midtown Strength and Conditioning in the Southside Park neighborhood of Sacramento. Midtown Strength and Conditioning is a non-commercial gym specializing in “traditional” methods of achieving strength---the gym has no mirrors, no machines and no attitude. It is, as her clients call it, “No joke.”
A graduate of Cal Poly State University, SLO, Tara brings practical business skills to the gym and the clients she coaches. Her style is no-nonsense and she goes to great lengths to help everyone reach his/her fitness goals. She constantly e-mails, texts and calls her clients to keep them on track. She takes them through intense conditioning workouts, sometimes utilizing only bodyweight movements. She also provides them with nutrition services based on established guidelines for weight gain, lose or maintenance.
As a young adult, Tara swam competitively and excelled in the butterfly and individual medley races. She currently competes as a powerlifter. Her best lifts to date are — 319 dead lift, 314lb squat, and 214lb bench press.
In her free time, Tara loves to travel. She has visited many countries including Cuba (twice), Guatemala, Belize, Mexico (several times), Thailand, France and plans to visit Vietnam in the Spring of 2009.
