Like all great things, the Skaggs House of Pain had modest beginnings. Part guest room/part workout room, the original SHOP squat rack, barbell set, and pull up bar shared a humble space with a bed and dresser in a Dallas, Texas duplex in 2007—and they shared a building with an upstairs tenant who didn’t appreciate deadlift days at 5am. Though it started out as little more than a place for Drew to work out, in 2008 Drew took his first real steps toward making the SHOP a business.
With his priorities in line, Drew painted and finished the floor of the new garage SHOP before he actually owned the house so that move-in day couldn’t become a missed workout day. Over time, Drew added equipment and clients, and it evolved into the Corvallis, Oregon location you see today.
We use top-of-the-line equipment from Rogue, PerformBetter, Assault Fitness and other providers. And the equipment we use is designed to provide functional strength and conditioning. To that end, you will find the following here:
Pull-up rig w/ lifting racks
20kg and 15kg Rogue barbells
Trap bars and other specialty barbells
Medicine balls (4#-50#)
Assault AirBikes and Rogue Echo Bikes
Assault AirRunner Treadmill
Crossover Symmetry and other resistance bands
The SHOP recently upgraded to a whopping 5,000 square foot facility of open space including an 80′ x 15′ turf area for sprinting, speed/agility drills, and sled-dragging and pushing. With three full bathrooms with showers, there is seldom a reason you can’t make it to the SHOP. You can leave smelling and looking as sweet as when you first walk in.
