Young, old, disabled, and skills of ALL levels are welcome. We can modify all of our workouts and will cater to your every need! Happy members mean a happy gym and a happy gym means that we have a thriving community.
SO, WHAT IS

Functional Fitness Training​

“Functional fitness exercises train your muscles to work together and prepare them for daily tasks by simulating common movements you might do at home, at work or in sports. … For example, a squat is a functional exercise because it trains the muscles used when you rise up and down from a chair or pick up low objects” -Mayo Clinic.

We not only prepare you for everyday life, but we also help you lift heavy and get the results that you want!

When it comes to personal training no one can compare. At The Factory we offer one on one coaching with our staff members. We make this work for you. We will work with you to find a time that works best. These are 1-hour sessions with the cost varying. We offer this up to 3-5 days a week. We will plan your workouts and work with you every step of the way. On top of this, we also offer nutritional planning as well. We will calculate your macros or give you other nutritional plans and options based on your specific needs.
