Best Decision I’ve Made

“Joining defined was the best decision I have made during this pandemic. I have been working out at a gym for a couple of years but got stuck in the same old routine, working out beside people who mostly fend for themselves. At defined I have learned new skills, gained more confidence, and most importantly I feel like a part of a team. I’m hoping to build constant and close friendships and that I become a strong athlete. The coaches are wonderful, supportive, and never too busy to answer any of your questions.”

~ Miriam B.

Great Community

“Great gym to step up your athletic performance. I’ve never been a part of a more supportive community, from the top tier coaches offering personal instruction to everyone to the members who all power through tough workouts together. Don’t feel like you have to be a top tier athlete to join. Defined truly welcomes everyone!”

~ Will P.

Fantastic Coaches

“I can’t begin to put into words what the entire Defined staff and the Defined community as a whole have meant to me for the past few years. While I know the coaches don’t do what they do for the gratitude, I feel it is very much owed. I have an infinitely better grasp of my physical and mental capabilities and limitations now because they taught me to be a student of my own body and mind. I hope that others can be touched the way I have by the compassion, attentiveness, patience, and straight-up badassery that the coaching staff brings to the gym every day. #liftlocal”
