Making Strong Families.

It’s what we do and It’s who we are!

We train families!  From youth athletes, to parents balancing their busy schedules to older adults working on staying strong and fit to make the most of every moment, we have a program for each stage of life.

When you join our community, you will find families training in all of our programs. Grandparents, parents, children, siblings, etc. all getting better, together!  This will then carry over into every aspect of life when it becomes the lifestyle your family chooses.

Although your purpose may change, training will remain a constant and we will provide the programming, coaching and experience needed to support you along the way.  Our goal every day is to train hard and enjoy the process, together!

Regardless of your purpose, pushing yourself in the gym will lead to that same drive in your everyday life.

We believe that building a solid foundation of strength and fitness, in a supportive team environment, will not only push you to achieve your goals but will provide a community of like-minded individuals striving to work towards becoming better in their day to day life. Better athletes, better movers, better people!

About Mimi

Sport and fitness have been my entire life since I can remember.  As a triplet with two older brothers, I was born with built in teammates.  Luckily, we tried everything from baseball to dance to swimming.  In high school, I was a 3-sport athlete playing volleyball, basketball and softball.  

I discovered the importance of training through injury.  First, I suffered an ACL tear in high school and soon realized the impact of strength training on performance.  I went on to play Division I college softball where I developed an even greater passion for training.  After my playing career ended, I became a college softball coach and strength coach.  At that time, I also pursued competitive fitness and suffered a separated shoulder at the AC joint.  I was told after this injury to not lift weights again.  This only further ignited my passion for training.  I knew that was not the answer and was determined to prove that doctor wrong.  I continued to train and in 2017 I was faced with the biggest physical test yet.  My mother was in need of a kidney transplant and I was lucky enough to be the donor.  I have no doubt that all the time I put into training was ultimately for this purpose.

 All in all, I coached at the collegiate level for ten years before fully pursuing fitness as a career.  Eventually, I became a full-time trainer working with people of all ages which led me to opening my own training facility in January of 2021.  

 I was inducted into the Hamilton High School Hall of Fame in 2019 and the Butler County Softball Hall of Fame in 2022.  I cannot help but think about how purposeful training led me to those accomplishments in addition to still pursuing athletic endeavors today.  I now compete in functional fitness competitions, most recently winning the Donor Games Championship in 2021 and 2022.  With training, anything is possible!

 Through my experiences, I have learned that training is necessary for all people.  For the youth athlete who is looking to take their performance to the next level and for the aging adult who wants to be able to live their life to the fullest every day.   Pursuing strength is necessary and building training into your lifestyle is the key to longevity and reducing joint pain.  My goal now is to help others feel and move better through purposeful training.
