Tight Grip Fitness


Tight Grip Fitness was established in 2020 by Certified Trainer Makeda Thompson (Keda). Keda has a background in basketball, volleyball, and track and field. She has always been active and enjoyed pushing herself in terms of physical fitness. 

Nutrition became important to her after a long childhood of being overweight and developing health complications. After the passing of her grandmother (the woman who raised her), she vowed to return home (Northern California) with a new attitude toward food. 

Keda's mission started with helping her family lead a healthier lifestyle to her knowing the significance of nutrition and fitness for ALL!

food heals the body

I believe wholeheartedly that food heals the body and when we eat the right things, our minds are better and stronger. Needless to say, I take nutrition very seriously! If you swear you cannot eat vegetables and fresh fruit daily-- this is not for you!

You will see that my meals are created to be fun, full of color, and packed with nutrients. I believe that the average person isn't training to be a bodybuilder or an avid bikini competitor, therefore I enjoy teaching people about intuitive eating. Intuitive eating is an approach that encourages you to be in control.

Along with this concept, I will provide a general food formula and nutrition facts to make it easy for you all to understand what you're eating and why you're eating it!
