Happening Today


This space is intended to provide a different way of training. We have transformed a racquetball court into a fully functional unique training space. The space is made up multiuse equipment such as kettlebells, resistance bands, medicine balls, boxing bags, climbing rig, etc. The possibilities are endless and gives our members the freedom to get creative with their workouts. We also offer a variety of workshops and programs geared around cross training as well as rock climbing techniques.
