Chalk it Up Strength is a clean, spacious and friendly gym. The owner and trainers are knowledgeable and respectful. One of the trainers, Brenna, has been training me since January. She is absolutely inspiring and supportive. I would definitely recommend this gym to friends! More...

I wanted to do a review based on a character review of the people involved at this gym, as I work across the street from them, and interact with both Rob (Rhyno) and his clients on almost a daily basis. I've been lifting for the better part of 28 years, and never met a group of more humble people, both with regard to the people who run it, but also the team that lifts, as well as their clients. they look to have everything I would ever want in a gym myself, which I've commented on during chit chat with rob and some of the other guys, but almost as important, is how they carry themselves.To start, Rob is probably one of the nicest guys I've ever met, period, and is always super cool and down to earth, and despite being a huge guy, doesn't seem to have a bad bone in his body. Whenever I've popped by to drop off information for him, he's always really welcoming, and I haven't felt out of place stopping by.  The guys who he lifts with (the lift team?) are also super cool and I haven't met a bad guy among them, which says something about all of those guys- all of them are pretty nice, and respectful when they come into my store.  Their clients don't fit any sort of stereotypes which one might typically assign to people involved with fitness or gym life, which also says a lot about the type of people who are attracted to this gym- there's not really the big full of themselves gym-type vibe that some people have at larger gyms, (which can be intimidating for people new to fitness.)  based off of that, and some of the goodies they have for S&C that they have, I'd say you definitely get your money's worth and then some, just for the welcoming environment alone. even if they aren't a huge gym, that, for me, would make it more than worth it if I could afford to train there, and frankly has been enough to inspire me to get back into my own training at home.for what it's worth, I'd say definitely give them a shot, because these guys (clients and owners) are definitely the kind of people you'd want to train with and around, even if you were new to the sport.keep bein' cool guys!

Set up for powerlifters, weightlifters, and strongmen/women. Plenty of full power racks and half racks for benching. Plenty of deadlifting platforms, bumper plates, chin/dip station. yoke, log press, safety bar, buffalo bar, etc. Owners/staff are friendly as can be. More...

Amazing place with really down to earth staff that know their stuff! I came here as a complete beginner and they helped me out. Great equipment and great clientele that make you feel welcome and support you with your health goals. If you want a gym that will help you get stronger and look better and feel at home then you should come to Chalk it up Strength, do yourself a favor and surround yourself with champions that will help you get there!

This review is long overdue, as I have been a member of this gym since December. You won't find a gym better than this. I was looking for powerllifting gyms in the area because I was interested in competing in my first meet. I connected with Allie, one of the owners, over e-mail, and she is just a doll. Her husband, Rob, the other co-owner, became my coach and trained me for my first powerlifting meet. I couldn't have found a better coach. Allie and Rob are experienced lifters (Rob competes too), and they are smart, hardworking, and talented business owners! Aside from powerlifting, this gym pretty much has everything you need for your style of training - strongman, olympic weighlifting, bodybuilding, sports training, general fitness, etc. with plenty of chalk, machines, and designated areas to squat, bench, deadlift. You won't find a stupid bro here bicep curling in the squat rack. No douchebaggery here. There's personal training here too if you need it.Yes, there is a really cute dog that sits behind the desk!Sorry, there is no locker room, but you're not here to take locker selfies, you're here to lift!The best part is the atmosphere. It's a home away from home; an iron family, if you will. More...

Came in today to check out the gym. The owners were so friendly and helpful! It's affordable and I can tell it's a place where I'm going to learn a lot. It's so hard to find a good gym that's not an arm and a leg. I am looking forward to my journey with Chalk it up Strength! More...
