About Us

Let us start by saying that THE GYM is about THE MEMBERS 

Want to see and experience a truly non-judgmental environment? Going into a GYM can be intimidating for some people- but at THE GYM the environment is supportive of all levels and sports. Competitive athletes workout along side those looking to get started in adopting a healthy lifestyle. Powerlifters, track athletes, strongmen (and women), crossfitters, Zumba crowds, martial artists, cyclists, soccer, baseball, hockey and families all working out in the same GYM. Get inspired by the trophies and medals around the GYM –they are won and earned by members of THE GYM. We celebrate with our members their accomplishments! Each of them from the first 5k to the Silver medal at Worlds Powerlifting.

Aside from the athletes- we’ve got multiple generations of families. It’s great to see health and fitness shared across multiple generations.
