Let us start by saying that THE GYM is about THE MEMBERS
Want to see and experience a truly judgement-free strength training environment? Going into a gym can be intimidating for some people – but, at THE GYM, our environment is supportive of all skill levels and sports. Competitive athletes workout alongside those looking to get started in adopting a healthy lifestyle. Powerlifters, track athletes, strongman (and woman) competitors, CrossFit athletes, Zumba crowds, martial artists, cyclists, soccer players, baseball players, hockey players, and families can all be seen working out in our fitness center. Get inspired by the trophies and medals around The GYM – they were won and earned by our amazing members. We celebrate fitness and the accomplishments of our members, together. From their first 5k to a silver medal at Worlds Powerlifting, our community grows as one.
Aside from the athletes, THE GYM is rooted in the community with multiple generations of family members exercising in our fitness center. It’s great to see health and wellness shared across multiple generations.
