Just moved over from the mainland. I can easily say that this is one of the best gyms I’ve been to in years. Friendly staff and a terrific owner. Never overcrowded....music is good and not overpowering. If you are serious about training then this is the perfect gym for you. - Patrick Logan
Love this gym so much and the amazing staff. Super clean and fantastic equipment. Thanks for being so welcoming and kind after our gym closed. We felt lost as to where to go. Sue answered all my questions with patience and kindness. Which made the transition much easier. - Shaina Bee
