TFR co-founders

TFR CoFounders (L-R) Rashad and Tosha McDade with Jamal and Lauren Powers

When it comes to creating a “unique, fun, and high-intensity workout” experience, fitness gurus Rashad and Tosha McDade along with their fellow husband/wife team members Jamal and Lauren Powers, are paving the way with Total Fitness Revolution (TFR), the largest Black-owned fitness facility in Atlanta.

Priding themselves on innovation, TFR offers a one-of-a-kind cycling experience with state-of-the-art equipment such as professional grade BH brand bikes – the select bike provider for Tour de France riders – Barre, CrossFit, Yoga, Pilates, Body Sculpting, Kickboxing, HIIT, Boot Camp, Strength Training, Cycling and so much more.

In fact, their 16,000 square foot studio where the “party meets the pedal” has gained so much traction, that stars like R&B crooner Usher and Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Sheree Whitfield have both been spotted spinning to some of today’s biggest hits.

Recently, BlackDoctor.org had the opportunity to chop it up with the superstar small business owners, who dished on everything from their upcoming event hosted by Angela Simmons (powered by Aquafina) to the joys and challenges of working together.

“We became partners back in 2014,” Lauren, who previously fronted a thriving boot camp revealed. “She [Tosha McDade] brought us together and Rashad brought the whole personal training aspect. I brought more of the CrossFit and classes aspect and together we’ve just grown the business experientially,” she explained, detailing how each has contributed to the success of the business.

“We both had a population that needed to be served, we didn’t have a place to do it, and that’s what brought us together,” she added of partnering with Rashad’s well-recognized personal training program.
