A collection of workouts and pain resolution programs

Get the collection for $2/month

Well, hello there.

Let me start with what PappaStrong is:

PappaStrong is a comprehensive collection of 15-minute functional strength workouts (over 1,000 available) for the tired, busy, formerly agile, still active but also maybe not so much, determined, possibly achey, extra smart, mostly light-hearted dad. It also has a ton of content designed for addressing physical pain and areas of weakness. And all of this exists in a simple membership site for only $2/month.

We love that you found us and we high five your scrappiness. We think you'll be surprised how much these workouts change how you feel, hopefully for the better. Just kidding, we absolutely know that what we teach can help you in all areas of your life and we are really excited to decided to go off the beaten path. 

Let's go over the brief PappaStrong history:

PappaStrong used to include an ongoing delivery of NEW daily 15-minute workouts (for a higher price, obvi), led by Alex (our amazing instructor) who also responded to member questions and comments as they came up. 

Why no more NEW daily workouts?

Well, to be brutally honest, running a profitable niche online fitness company for men that is not focused on "gains, bro" is extra difficult (read: basically impossible). And most of the PappaStrong team ALSO works full time on the other half of our company: MommaStrong. We simply couldn't maintain both platforms, given the human limits factor. 

In 2023, we had to make the tough decision to shut the doors on the daily filming here at PappaStrong. BUT, since the community and workouts had become such a staple in the lives of so many dads, we decided to keep the archive around for them. We also figure there are plenty of like-minded people out there to benefit from all the hard work over the last decade. 

How does it work?

Here's how this archive works: You sign up for $2/month. You then go to your inbox full of all the other random stuff you may or may not regret signing up for and YOU GET BOLD and you find a "Welcome to PappaStrong" email. Click on those for your login info and also for basic getting started details. If you can't find that email, please take a hike through the land of lost emails, aka trash, spam, promotional, no one knows. AND, if even then, no dice, please send an email to help@mommastrong.com and we will get you sorted right away.

Once you get logged in, you will see you have access to all the workout and content. From here, honestly, it's a bit of a "choose your own adventure" - but we guide you a bit more adequately in that Get Started email, don't worry. You'll also have access to a searchable spreadsheet of all PappaStrong workouts in case you are looking for something specific.

Things to know:

For any technical issues or account-related drama, please email help@mommastrong.com. Please note that we no longer answer other PappaStrong questions, from the mysteries of the universe and/or quandaries about your body. 


Voila. That's all we got.

We do recommend that you try to do something here in PappaStrong daily-ish. The reason for this is simple: Strength progression happens in small, feasible bites done regularly.
