Become More.

When we first opened in 2011, it was in a small, dirty converted boat house with no money, no clients and armed merely with an intense passion to change the fitness game and what a gym experience should be.

We were laughed at by the fitness establishment.

A truly independent, local gym could not be successful in a land dominated by corporate sponsored, TV giants.

People took their shots. Quickly labeled us a joke and judged us as small time.

Only, one by one our members thought otherwise, and they spread the word.

Owners Dave Thomas and Bryan Pritz prioritized quality coaching and personalized development above one-size-fits all, competitive workouts. Armed with a loyal coaching staff hell bent upon helping common people do uncommon things.

More converts. More believers. Simply by focusing on our members. Not sponsored athletes. Not celebrities.


Nearly five years, 580 members and two locations later, our flag remains unwavering.

The moral of the story: People first. Profit second.

Join us for a trial class and declare your independence.

What Can You Expect?

You can learn to exercise anywhere. So why choose us over the more famous options?

For the same reason 95% of our members volunteer to renew their memberships each month, for the last five years. We believe “value”, “standards” and “customer service” are not just buzzwords, but the heartbeat that keeps us alive.

While many gyms have a “You can’t sit with us” mentality, our table is open for all who to shed the gym nonsense.

When you enroll you will undergo transformation.

You’ll have coaches as partners.

You will be pushed. You will learn new strengths and skills and you will become empowered.

You’ll be guided, yet also have the flexibility to follow your own path.

It will take time. Results will not happen overnight.

You will make improvements. You will reach your goals. You will achieve success and demand more of it.

Strength inside the gym will sharpen your life everywhere and you will become a more confident version of yourself in your work, relationships and whatever roadblocks life throws your way.
