About Us


Total Pursuit Athletics

Total Pursuit Athletics (originally CrossFit TPA, The Primal Athlete) started in a garage in February 2012. What started as a group of friends and former training clients coming together to workout and help others, turned into something really special. In May of 2012 TPA moved into its current location in Zelienople, but with only 2000 square feet of our current space. Three expansions and almost 10 years later, we have one of the largest functional fitness spaces with up to date equipment for all your fitness needs.

With thoughtful workout programming created and taught by the most highly qualified, educated, and experienced coaches in the business, our sessions are fun, safe and wildly effective!
