Train with an Expert that has

22 Years of Experience Producing Results




Your workout program is designed based on your anatomy, your movement quality, and your tolerance. In other words, we train you as an individual.

We set you up with a custom plan that’s right for you. We have you do exercises that you can do well, and we give you the amount of volume and frequency to get results without you feeling under or overworked.

We track necessary data to show progress and to know when your results have slowed down enough to the point of needing a new stimulus.

The glutes primary function is to do three things: hip extension, hip abduction, and hip external rotation. Every workout we do one exercise for each of the three main movements. We do 3 sets of each in every workout, and we do 12 total sets for the glutes every week.

Although there’s a heavy emphasis on the glutes we do train the rest of the body.

The classes only allow up to 6 people and are four days a week: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. We have two times to choose from, 10-11 am and 11-12 pm. If you’re interested, fill out the form towards the bottom of the page and let us know what class time works best for you.

Nutritional Principles



So many people think seeing results is just a matter of training as if it’s solely an exercise deficiency. The limiting factor is almost always what you’re not doing outside of the gym such as what you eat or don’t eat, how much stress you’re under and how resilient your body is at dealing with stress, and the quality of your sleep.

Here’s some of the principles and concepts you will learn:

For semi-private training is completely personalized based on your goals and objectives. We don’t use a one-size-fits-all approach to training.

For our Glute Prime class we focus on the 3 main functions of the glutes (hip extension, hip abduction, and hip external rotation) with every workout and then the rest of the workout has upper body and core exercises. Even though the glutes are the primary focus hence the name Glute Prime, we train the whole body.


In order to get in your best shape nutrition has to be a focal point. We see what your current habits are and help you to build new ones that are sustainable and will get you results. We don’t believe that fad diets work and we believe that any dietary changes should be something you can do permanently. If you can’t do it for a lifetime is it worth doing at all? This is why we created AN ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO NUTRITION PRINCIPLES book. 

We also use an app for nutrition to help with grocery shopping, what foods to eat and to avoid, as well as accountability. 

From here we discuss and help fine-tune a nutritional plan that’s perfect for you.


They range from 45 minutes up to an hour and 15 minutes. We don’t base the training on a set time but research has shown that the longer your training session is the more stress hormones go up and anabolic hormones go down, so it eventually becomes counterproductive if you train for too long.

We’re by appointment only but we’re willing to work from: 

6am – 9pm Monday through Friday 

7am – 1pm on Saturday. 

We’re closed on Sunday.

Our Glute Prime classes are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from:

10-11 am

11-12 pm


 If we don’t get you results we really couldn’t blame you for wanting to leave.

  • Results really vary from person to person. Some things that will determine this are:
  • your frequency and commitment to training (try not to miss workouts).
  • If you make any necessary changes to your diet (example: hitting your daily protein goals.)


I’ve had people lose up to 25 pounds in 3 months and gain 10 pounds of muscle. Here’s a few before and after pics.

PERSONAL TRAINING is $350 per month and goes from month to month (no contracts). We recommend you train 3 to 4 times a week. That equates to between $22-$29 per session. For perspective, one-on-one personal training is usually at least $60 per session at the lowest possible cost and upwards of $100 per session.

GLUTE PRIME CLASS is just $250 per month and that is 4 training sessions a week, so around $15 per session. No more than six people are allowed in a class so the training can be the best possible. Again, there is no contract and nutritional guidance is included as well as a discount on any supplements.

The supplement industry isn’t forced into any regulations so there are a lot of companies that only care about their bottom line…profit.

We only use health practitioner brands such as Designs For Health and their sports performance line, Designs For Sport. All products are GMP and NSF certified so you can be assured that what the label claims is in it is 100% accurate and nothing else is in it that shouldn’t be.
