I’ve been really happy with this gym. Everyone is really friendly, positive and encouraging. I’ve never been an athlete and was intimidated by all the equipment and people that seemed to know what they were doing, but the staff quickly made me feel at ease. I’ve been training with Jayme for a few months now and am thrilled with the results. I’ve lost inches, look younger and feel so much better.


Love working out here! My trainer Jayme is awesome! She’s super motivating and really knows her stuff.


This gym is a hidden gem. They have many different classes to offer.  During the gym peak hours I’ve never had to wait to work out on a bench or machine. The instructors are knowledgeable and very helpful. Their rooms for personal training are unique and challenging. Many gyms in this area do not offer such a variety of training. They offer child care as well. The membership prices are very reasonable.


Two floors of everything you need to get in shape. Very friendly staff and the trainers are awesome.
