About the speaker
After 11 years on the road racing as a professional triathlete, Coach Terra decided to return to where it all started: Detroit. Here, she founded the Be Bold Crew, a fun and friendly group of bold endurance athletes who would pop-up and train anywhere and everywhere throughout the city.
Over a year of growing, training and racing later, Terra recognized the need to offer fitness opportunities beyond endurance sports, and eagerly jumped at the opportunity to launch the Detroit Body Garage in Detroit’s West Village. Already home to many great home-grown businesses–such as The Red Hook, Parker Street Market and Sister Pie–Terra is excited to bring her commitment to helping others become vehicles of change through movement and community to this great neighborhood and city. The focus is rebuilding one part at a time.
Terra’s story is one of being BOLD despite the storms. What started as a broken heart due to divorce when she moved back to Detroit, blossomed into learning to love again. This is thanks to a city that is also being BOLD + rebuilding.

A Community-based Gym in Detroit. Detroit Body Garage is proud to call Detroit’s West Village home. Located down the street from our friends at Sister Pie, Parker Street Market, and The Red Hook, we’re excited to be a part of this vibrant and diverse community.
After graduating with BFA degrees (Andy in Graphic Design from Leeds, UK and mine in Photography from CCS in Detroit) we both moved to New York City to work in our fields. We met at Trunk Archive, both working as photo retouchers. We moved to Red Hook, Brooklyn, just a few blocks away from Stumptown Coffee Roasters new roastry location. In 2010, we decided to move back to Detroit and start The Red Hook. We proudly serve Stumptown Coffee.
