Our Strength Training Classes Are Your Answer To CrossFit Without All The CrossFit Stuff

Our strength training program is specifically designed to reignite your inner athlete, but more importantly is what we're not. Our strength training program does not sacrifice form so that you can get some arbitrary number or keep up with the herd. No! Each person is unique so we focus on form and technique to build stronger, leaner, better cardio, and more agile athletes. If you're looking for a fun group to train with to get you fitting better in your clothes, shedding that unwanted belly fat, and building strong long lean muscles than John's Gym Strength Training Class is for you.

What Results Can You Expect From Our Strength Training Program?

Our Strength Training Program is developed to hit every angle of peak physical fitness. Never boring, never dull, each month the instructor presents a new challenge for us to accomplish. This month may be Power Endurance which means being able to maintain optimal strength while lifting for longer periods of time. How many times have you heard of people getting strong but also losing their cardio because of all the new muscle they put on? It happens all the time. Then the next month we may work on Building Mass where we're really working on building mass and increasing the weight we lift but also doing less rips. Then the following month may be Max Reps program where we are looking for max reps of a lower amount of weight. And so on. Our systematized Strength Training Program has seen our athletes accomplish amazing transformations, for example: one member lost over 50lbs, another lost over 40lbs but also gained muscle mass and looks amazing, others who come in in decent shape increase their power endurance and build long lean muscles so they fit in their clothes better. Whether your goal is to lose that pesky belly fat, lose 10lbs, or you just want to maintain an already good physique in a fun and friendly lifting atmosphere then our Strength Training program is right for you.

John's Gym is truly a place "where every one knows your name". It's not a big, flashy gym, but it's got everything you need for a solid workout. It's the first gym I've been to that the owners, John and Jasmine, are participating in the classes with you. They honestly care about your success and are always right there cheering you on! I've met some pretty awesome people here that treat me and my kids like family. It's been almost a year now since joining John' Gym and I can honestly say I LOVE training here!
