CHALK is a weight training gym that combines the membership, training & coaching, and your workout routine all for one price. The equipment, the facility, the programming and coaching are designed to provide the optimal environment for training.

Chalk is returning to the roots of weight training and focusing on developing the unique qualities of the athlete rather than following blindly the current fads of other fitness facilities and gyms. We want to help preserve what we believe is a special and disappearing mindset and way of life.


Terry Grisham M.A., C.S.C.S.

Terry began his Strength & Conditioning career in 1984 at the University of Oklahoma. He studied under and was mentored by Pete Martinelli, head strength and conditioning coach at Oklahoma, and Joe Juraszek, assistant strength coach.


CHALK was fortunate enough to purchase the latest Eleiko equipment that was used for just two weeks at the 2015 World Championships in Houston.  The very platform and bar you use at Chalk may have been used by a World Champion just a few short months ago. If you seek world-class Olympic Weightlifting equipment with professional coaching and programming, Chalk was created just for you.



Every Membership Includes:
Individualized Coaching & Instruction Tailored to Your Goals  ♦  Unlimited Custom Planned Training Sessions ♦  Nutrient Timing Planning  ♦  Sports Medicine & Recovery Guidance  ♦  Training Equipment Recommendations

I’ve known Terry Grisham since I was a freshman at LSU. He truly is one of the reasons I have had such a long career in baseball.

As a former US Army Special Forces operator and NCAA Division I athlete, I understand the work and commitment necessary for peak physical performance.

I first met Terry in 1980 when he joined the OU Weightlifting Club as a sophomore in high school. I remember his intense desire to train. Even at 15 yrs old, I could tell he was destined to become a great athlete and coach.
