“I love this gym! It's always a challenge to find amazing spaces for functional fitness training that aren't all about the cross fit absolutely smash yourself culture. The classes are so well structured for all fitness levels, from completely new to exercise to those who want to or do compete professionally. They have ropes, sleds, logs, kettle bells, tires, rings, olympic lifitng platforms - everything. The staff's knowledge is amazing as well, so i never felt like i could injure myself while trying a new lift, which is awesome cause I've injured myself too many times in Crossfit. This is the first review I've written for a gym before, but i was just so pumped when I found it! Hopefully, it's helpful for others looking for all round fitness - strength, metabolic conditioning, flexibility and skill acquisition! Love it. Can't recommend this place enough!”

“Absolutely top level gym that hosts both total beginners and serious athletes. The owner and trainer James is an expert at helping people achieve their fitness goals and at accommodating any injuries or limitations. The focus is on small class group fitness, which means that you effectively get a personal trainer at the fraction of the cost. Each class has a different focus which allows you to work on the aspect of your training you want on a given day, and spread out the soreness a bit. Definitely the best overall gym environment I've ever experienced and highly recommended!”
