Tr3s Method (or Tres Method) was founded upon the 3 basic modalities of moving the human body – Strength, Mobility, and Endurance. Tr3s is also Spanish for three which comes from our Founder Luis Leonardo’s background as a former professional triathlete for Team Guatemala.
Back in 2014 Luis met Adam McGuire, another personal trainer at the time (with the same birthday!) who shed similar training styles and beliefs on health and fitness. Fast forward 4 years and Tr3s Method was born over a training session and cheese curds!
Luis wanted a way to bring is physical, independent, private personal training studio – Tres Sports – to his clients that traveled a lot or couldn’t make it due to our *fun Minnesota Winters.
Adam wanted to bring his belief of health and fitness to an aging generation inside their home, but without all the windshield time.
When they started talking it out, it was soon realized the two, could be one in the same. The excuse of – “Oh, I don’t think I am your demographic” was challenged, the idea of an overall, scalable workouts for any age or fitness ability was born.
People try and make fitness too complicated; looking for the next shortcut, or tweak of doing an exercise that will be the golden ticket. The truth is nothing beats fundamentals, hard work, consistency, and fun.
Tr3s Method workouts are 30 minute workouts consisting of intervals and rounds to target Strength, Mobility, and Endurance, with fun names!
Wether you workout at home, or are always on the go, you’ll still be able to get in a quality workout, that gets you closer to your goals.

His main focus today is leveling individuals on 3 different categories, mobility, strength, and endurance. To him these are the main gears of every human and if you don’t try to level those 3 areas, at some point in life you will regret not balancing them. Seeing kids play, and learn, has been a great tool for Luis, as he sees fitness the same way a child develops/learns; going from crawling, to squatting, to walking, to running, to climbing, to jumping, to pushing, to digging, etc.

He tries his best to boil things down to the very basics to help them see how much value there is on learning all the fundamentals very well.

If he can accomplish that with a client, and also show them the value of hard work, consistency, patience but must importantly to keep things fun; he feels accomplished.
