Steve Anderson, Andrew Braun and Michael Tetteh formed a partnership to take Gritworks Athletics to scale in a 6,000 square foot Bellingham facility in the summer of 2017.

Steve Anderson, exercise scientist and former competitive baseball player, founded Gritworks by training two Division 1 athletes. Andrew Braun, college friend of Steve’s and multi-sport athlete and trainer and Michael Tetteh, retired professional soccer player (Seattle Sounders FC 2011-2013), Generation Adidas and Division 1 athlete, and certified performance coach, joined as partners in 2017. Each partner brings deep knowledge of sport and respect for holistic health.

Our coaches create an inspiring environment of training, healthy lifestyle and sports performance solutions for our athletes. They live by the example of what they teach and are constantly learning, refining and growing themselves.
