3/5/20 - PODCAST: GymOS by PushPress

It was a pleasure to sit down with PushPress founder, Dan Uyemura, and talk about everything we are doing at DEUCE. The two companies run in parallel. I remember being in the coffee shop in the early days of DEUCE and bumping into Dan and his partners. They were brainstorming the project that would become PushPress. 

We talk about culture, the rites of passage built into building our coaching staff, and what the true value we’re trying to create in the fitness space really is. If you’re a nerd about DEUCE, this will be a gold mine for the concepts the drive our team. 

I invite you to listen in to our conversation that provides some insight into what’s happening behind the scenes at DEUCE. I hope you enjoy learning about our ethos.

Brian “Tosh” Chontosh is one of the best men I know. It’s worth mentioning that I’d have written that sentence just like that without knowing any of his accolades, too. It’s no surprise that we’d been friends for nearly two years until I learned (from someone else, of course) that he is a legendary American ...

[VIDEO] What is a Fake Pull Up?

In many minds, the blasphemous kipping pull up is a not even a distant cousin of the assumed more honorable strict pull up. Read the comments section of any super athlete performing an effort that involves the kipping pull up and you’ll read my favorite heckle: “And, not one pull up was done that day ...
