How It Works
Your first step to start is to set up your first one on one Intro Class with Cory. The Intro Class is a one hour session that will help you learn some more about our gym and the “why’s” behind the program. After answering any questions you will be taught some basic movements which will then be structured into a beginner level workout that you can complete.
After your first class, talk to Cory about your goals, training time and whether you feel like this program is right for you. He will guide you every step of the way to ensure that you’re in the correct class and have the best opportunity to succeed.
Pick a membership option that works for you – we have several different plans available to fit your schedule and training frequency. Unlike other gyms that require a contract to keep their clients, we don’t force contracts on our members – we rely on the excellence of our service to keep you coming back.
