More important than any of that, I am a Coach who cares about each athlete that I train and I want to see them succeed, and be the best that they can be.

I created the TPS Method and the TPS Method for Powerlifting to give my clients a unique, systemized, methodical approach to training.

Think of the TPS Method like the Jeet Kun Do (JKD) of strength.
If you are unfamiliar with JKD, it is the system of martial arts developed by Bruce Lee.
The TPS Method is certainly not martial arts, but it adheres to Bruce Lee’s philosophy of looking at and studying everything and then taking and applying what works and tossing what does not.
It is a “Modern” system, meaning that it is always evolving and it does not adhere to dogma.

The TPS Method for Powerlifting incorporates what works from many systems and packages them into a unique, plug and play system that you can begin at any level, beginner to advanced and start making more progress right away.

Sounds pretty good right?

Let’s talk about the video library for a moment.

I feel that this is worth the membership price alone.

Our video library has long and short videos on a huge range of subjects.

The short ones are quick hits that you can click and see how to do an exercise right in the middle of your training.

This is a huge help if you are following a program and an exercise is in it but you just don’t know what it is, or how to do it.

Just click the link (right in your program) and the video will come up showing you what to do.

We’ve also got longer videos that go into detail on all of the intricacies of an exercise and fully explain it to you.
It’s like having a coach right there in the room with you.

Our library includes complete coverage for:

beginner powerlifting programs, bench press, squat, deadlift

Warmup

Powerlifting Programs

Having the best program helps.
The TPS Method for Powerlifting programs work.

We have coached lifters to Regional, National and World Championship wins using this system.

Our lifters have also set Regional, National and World records.

You will get instant access to proven programming no matter what your level of experience.
Beginners, it is all mapped out for you.
Login, follow the steps on the Member Dashboard, download your program and lift.
It’s all done for you. No worries, no hassles, no confusion.

Most of our programs are delivered in 8 week blocks and each is part of a greater process.
We spend time building skill and strength in the “off season” and gradually bring you to a PEAK so that you perform your best on meet day.

This is something that we take great pride in.
All too often we see lifters getting injured, being stuck at the same weights, not recovering, and generally taking 1 step forward and 2 or 3 steps back on other programs.
The TPS Method for Powerlifting’s programing eliminates these problems.

As you go through a training block you should be recovered and ready to perform on meet day, not run down and banged up.

A well designed system of training ensures this.

The TPS Method for Powerlifting is that system.

We have a reputation for bringing extremely competent lifters to meets, regardless of their level of experience. I’ve been told more than once that we look like a military operation at meets with the systemized approach we have and the skill and discipline our lifters display.

This all comes back to the program.

The program build success at each step in the cycle.

The TPS Method for Powerlifting has programs for:
Raw lifters
Equipped lifters
Beginners
Intermediates
Advanced
Those who wish to become champions

We do not have programs for “tourists”.

We only want people who wish to be successful and perform better than they ever have.

Seminars

Have you seen what it costs to attend a seminar?

It’s not cheap.
Now I am not saying they are not worth the price, many are, and I go to a lot, and present at a lot.
How many of you can get away to travel for a seminar and get a day off work, or away from the family?

I’ll bet that getting to one is pretty inconvenient right?

Let’s look at the cost of attending a seminar (if it’s not in your town), and again, I am not saying they are not worth the cost, I am just saying…

Seminar Fee: $150 (on the low end)
Travel: $50
Hotel: $150
Food & Whiskey: $100
Total: $450 (at least!)

With your TPS Method for Powerlifting, you get seminar video included.

We film our seminars and will continue to do so.

We will also upload them for you to watch at your convenience.

This is another of those “worth the price alone” features.

Remember I said that you can learn from my mistakes?

I meant it. I made ALL of them.

When I started training way back in the early 1980’s, there was almost no information out there except for the muscle magazines. There were no coaches or trainers.
If you were lucky, you got connected with a crew or a guy at the gym that knew what they were doing and they allowed you to train with them.
You usually just ended up loading plates for them, but even then, you learned.

You couldn’t whip out your phone and get the information you needed because there were no phones; except for the one at your house plugged into the wall!

You couldn’t go home and turn on your PC or laptop and search the Google machine because it didn’t exist, and there were no PC’s!

Times are different now and the amount of information out there is staggering.
TPS is a trusted source of information, as am I.
I’ve made it a point throughout my career to only give out the best information I was capable of, building trust with my clients and readers.
Now, you can take advantage of that and have access to me and my precisely selected team anywhere in the world.

You don’t have to come to TPS or be in Boston.
You can do it right at home, or in the gym no matter where you are!

Don’t miss this opportunity, you have nothing to risk.

TPS Is Where You Need To Be Training!

Murph is one of the top coaches in the strength and conditioning world, providing the Boston area with the access to the best equipment and coaching you’ll find. His dedication to improving athletes and results is unparalleled. If you’re serious about improving your strength, conditioning, fitness, and/or athletic performance TPS is where you need to be training.

Murph Is A Fantastic Asset

Photo Credit: Elite FTS

I’ve been a part of Team EliteFTS with Murph for the last five years. I’ve had the opportunity to coach with him, train with him, and now that I run a gym, be mentored by him. Murph is a fantastic asset to the strength and conditioning industry both due to his knowledge and selflessness. Everything that Murph has absorbed through his extensive training and coaching experience, he gives back ten fold. I’m grateful to have him as a resource in my life and any opportunity I get to send friends, clients, or gym members his way, I’ve done so, and none have come away disappointed.

TPS Method Changed My Life!

TPS Method changed my life!!

I know, I know, everyone says that when they’re writing a testimonial. When I joined TPS, I knew I needed something to change but I wasn’t quite sure what.  I had started to watch what I ate and increase my exercising from none, to something but I had no motivation and no direction.  I decided it was time to do something for me after years of putting myself on the back burner, I knew I needed a structured program in order to get my ass in gear, so after a lot of deep discussions with myself and some fighting, I emailed the gym to set up a walk through and discuss their TPS Method classes.

Once I walked through and heard about the program I was sold and signed up immediately! Super excited and raring to go!!  I scheduled my meeting with Murph and received the paperwork that was required to fill out…

I had to get before pictures taken…in a sports bra and shorts!?  Ugh, I didn’t own a pair of shorts!! Resolve set in and I wore what I had and sat in a room with Murph, we went over how crappy I ate, how little I exercised, what was expected of me from Method, why didn’t I follow the instructions about the shorts…  I got measured and weighed plus had my pictures taken.  It was horrifying.  There was no place to hide what I had let my body become.  I walked out feeling sick but giddy.  I did it, I took the first step and now all that was left was to start the classes….

Oh boy, I cried the first day in the parking lot, before I even went in, but I went in. I stood in the corner waiting for one of the coaches to show me the warm up.  I was sweating and it was just the warm up… Holy hell, what did I sign up for! It got harder every day…I sweated more than I ever sweat in my life. It was hard but all of the coaches were extremely encouraging. They walked me through everything.  I never picked up a barbell in my life and would often smack myself with the barbell but they had patience for days!! Then one day, it got easier and I got more excited and pushed myself more to see what I could do!  It’s over a year later and every time I walk into the gym and into the Method class, I get excited and want to push myself. But it didn’t get easier, I got better and I got stronger. It was the best decision I made for myself.

I have no regrets about signing up except one, that I didn’t do it sooner…What are you waiting for?

I have C.J. Murphy’s number on speed dial, and there’s hardly a week that goes by where I don’t email him. Why is this? Am I needy? Am I a stalker? Do I just have a fetish for big, muscular guys with goatees? All of the above are probably true, but the main reason is that Murph is among the absolute best at what he does. He’s got more experience than practically any other coach I know, and his knowledge is second to none. But above all, it’s his passion for helping people get stronger and better at whatever they choose that impresses me most. I love this guy.

Reinvigorated My Desire To Workout

I had been going to TPS for a little over a year before I started the Method program.  The only reason I had originally picked TPS as a gym is it happened to be the closest gym to my house.  

After becoming a father and worrying about picking up the dreaded “dad bod” I figured it probably made sense to get more serious with my workouts and give the Method program a shot. I’ve been going to the gym fairly regularly for over 15 years but before joining Method I had never properly trained before.  

I learned more working with Phil in the introductory 8-week part of the program than I had my whole life prior to starting this program.  I’ve been in ok shape my whole life but have always been hampered by my flexibility.  Murph quickly realized this and gave me personalized attention and stretches to help improve my range of motion.  

I’ve been in the program for a little over a year and a half now and I still have a way to go before I’d call myself flexible but I move better now than I ever have, and at 35 I’m stronger than I’ve ever been in my life.  

I had always worried that my lack of range of motion would limit me as I got older.  Being in the Method program and being introduced to proper strength training has reinvigorated my desire to workout, and allowed me to set up goals to continually improve my physical wellbeing as I get older.  

My only regret with Method is that I didn’t start it sooner.

Previously coming from a nameless Boston area big box gym, you will not find a better equipped place for training whether you are novice or advanced lifter.

For some background, I played lacrosse through high school and weight-trained/did Crossfit through college, ultimately ending up herniating a disc in my back due to improper lifting techniques. After taking a hiatus from lifting a few years ago, I failed to find the direction and motivation in training that I once had. Driving passed TPS every day on my commute back and forth to work, I finally decided to stop in and see what they had to offer. I was not disappointed.

Since remaining injury free is a top priority for me, I joined the TPS Method, looking to the highly experienced and educated coaches here to help me perfect my lifting techniques. These guys are masters of their craft and continue to provide a challenging, balanced and fun workout experience that has helped me navigate around previous injuries and surpass any expectations I previously had in terms of all around results.

Shoutout to TPS Method coaches Andrew, Sophia, Phil, Candace, Cody, Russ and Matt for pushing me to constantly improve and get me out of my comfort zone. Thanks again guys, keep doing what you are doing. I cannot wait to continue smashing weights and PRs with all of you in the future.

Murph and his crew at Total Performance Sports are absolutely top notch. From strongman competitors and powerlifters to someone who has never stepped foot in a gym, these guys get their clients results the results they are looking for, and help them reach their goals in the quickest way possible. Murph is 100%, absolutely, no-questions-asked… the real deal.

Learned To Value & Appreciate My Body

I have struggled with my weight and my body my entire life.

For many years, I did hours and hours of cardio and ate low calorie/low carb diets and made no progress.

After quitting a commercial gym I started looking for personal training, and met with Kevin. On his recommendation, I started TPS Method and learned how to lift.

I was not good at it at first but I immediately loved it and loved getting stronger.

After about a year and a half, I joined Method for Powerlifting.

I love my team and my coaches Russ and Candace are amazing, supportive and motivating. I have learned so much from them.

Competing has been really fun and rewarding.

Through Nutrition Counseling, Murph has helped me to improve my nutrition and actually lose fat while maintaining my strength.

But what’s better than losing weight is that I learned to value and appreciate my body beyond what it looks like.

Food is no longer the enemy, I eat carbs and I don’t dread going to the gym. TPS is the best.

C.J. Murphy is an outstanding and enthusiastic coach with an impressive diversity of skills/knowledge. If you are in the Boston area, his gym is the place to go! Conventional training, unconventional training…they have it all!

Nothing Hurts. EVER!

I can’t say enough good things about TPS Method. I will admit that I was maybe a little … dubious … at first. On paper, it looks easy. Easier than what I was doing before. On paper. Or so I thought. I am working with a nutrition coach and have to send in progress pics every week (which makes me feel like the biggest jackass EVER, but that’s beside the point). This week, I thought, holy shit, I am fucking JACKED. Yes, I know a lot of that has to do with nutrition, but there is of course a training aspect there as well. There are amazing muscles popping everywhere! But even better than the visual, was the realization that nothing hurts. Ever. My knees don’t EVER hurt. That’s …. unheard of. I literally used to have to grab the countertop to squat down to dig through the tupperware containers, and grab it again to assist myself back up, because without a thorough warm up, my knees would SCREAM at me. My hips don’t hurt at all, ever. Again, somewhat unheard of, as I had been having issues with them for years, starting way back in my triathlon training days. Literally, no pain. That’s not to say I’m not sore from TPS – but it’s the good sore. 🙂

Being an Advanced Member and getting the programming in 4 week blocks is a lifesaver for me as I travel a lot for work. While I do the majority of my workouts at TPS (because best gym ever, duh), I can always do them when I’m on the road, and can even find a workout that I can do at a lousy hotel gym.

So – huge snaps. LOVING the program!!!!!! And the gym and the coaches. It’s an awesome place.

So, in short, nice job. 🙂

It seems like athletic and strength trainers are a dime a dozen these days.  Every where you look people are claiming to be trainers.  Seems like all you have to do is take a few classes, a seminar, or some certification and all the sudden your a strength trainer.  As you can guess most of these so call trainers are horrible.

Any trainer worth is weight has taken his own advice.  He can back his theories and skills with his own results.  He is or has been an athlete and he has had success in his sport.  You may learn some things in the classroom or lecture hall but the real learning begins with real life experience.  For this reason I trust C.J Murphy and Total Performance Sports.

Murph has walked the walk and talked the talk.  He has pushed his body to the limit in strength sports.  He has trained and competed with the best of the best.  He has trained athletes to results you can see.  Murph has learned from his own experience and being an athlete,  he has learned from other top athletes and he has learned from training countless clients.  This knowledge he has earned through a lifetime of training his butt off.  Its real world knowledge, not some BS some skinny guy made up in a classroom.  Murph has the knowledge, dedication, and love of training to help anyone achieve their goals.

Total Performance Sports is the perfect place to achieve your goals.  Its a no nonsense training facility set up for people to get results.  Its not a gym made to look pretty and full of useless machines.  Its a training  facility designed specifically with everything you need to acheive whatever your goal is.  All you have to bring is a good work ethic, dedication, and the ability to listen to great coach like Murph.

Got 1st Place In My Division

I’ve been an advance member for about 6 months doing the powerlifting blocks.

Just PR’d in my first meet in 18 months and got first place in my division.

The blocks keep me from being bored, challenge me ALWAYS and have led to my gains.

Even though sometimes I think Satan came up with them 😉
