"My kids love coming here. They’ve met several instructors and have very positive things to say about everyone. They have fun every single time they go and come home sweaty and tired! I highly recommend this as a great athletic outlet for kids, especially those who haven’t found their fit in more common sports."

"My 6-year old twins LOVED it here. In just one session with Coach Seth, I could see my kids practice respect and concentration, while building their confidence and physical strength and agility. Highly recommend this gym and experience. Membership is very reasonable."

"We heard about this place and finally found time to visit, it was a delight. There are amazing instructors and a fun facility. The classes fit exactly the kind of movement we are looking for to improve our fitness and skills. We signed up for the all-access membership and have not regretted it. UPDATE: After being members for almost a year, this place has really been a joy. The staff are friendly and helpful, encouraging growth at an individual level. I cannot recommend this enough."

Jesse Hughes

"Perfect gym for my kids! They get an amazing workout each time. The instructors really take the time to explain and demonstrate each move. My kids are learning new skills, which is giving them more confidence. The gym offers a stacked class list, which is great for our schedule."

Lisa Cox

"We took our 3 kids (ages 9, 7, 4) to their first trial session last night, and all three of them loved it! Our 4 year old was sad to leave and said he wants to go every day, and our 7 year old thinks Frank (the instructor) is his new best friend. 🙂 Frank did a great job of making them feel at ease for their first class. I was happy to see other girls in sessions as well, which I think helped put our daughter at ease. They are looking forward to going next week!"
