About Strong Hands Gym

We are an inclusive, yet distinctive part of the community–not a passive member.

We embrace values that set us apart, guide our actions, shape our programs and services, and result in meaningful & measurable outcomes for our members and the community as a whole.

We strive to accept ALL members of our gym and community. All who feel out of place and uncomfortable at other gyms will feel accepted, motivated, supported and empowered—no matter where they are in their personal/physical journey.

To accomplish this, we have a diverse & unique group of high performers that fully believe in our purpose. Each individual has a strong focus on goals and results for themselves, as well as contribute to the success of the entire team. Our team will utilize our state-of-the-art facility as a platform to grow personally and professionally while supporting Strong Hands’ overall mission. We will be supportive of each other, collaborative, and have a great time doing it.

I have a passion for fitness. I wanted to create an open-minded, judgement free zone for the LGBTQ community to indulge in weight training, boxing, martial arts…to feel inspired, to see results, to just be themselves.
