About

Warrior Fitness is the most unique training facility in Fresno. The first thing you’ll discover is we’re not your “typical” gym. There are no bootcamps, no CrossFit workouts, spin or Zumba classes. There are no beginner classes, advanced classes, or anything in between.

One of the best workouts I’ve ever had in my life this is a completely different gym than any other here in the central valley. Everyone that comes to work out is so supportive and helps you push to the next level of your conditioning and strength. I signed up and I have no regrets this is my go to gym. Every week something different which keeps it exciting for everyone thank you to the owner Paul. More...

This is two parts. Part one, explains the gym. Part two, explains me so you have some context. 1.The gym itself, the environment Paul promotes, the people, the music, Paul's instruction, is some of the best in the country. I recommend Warrior Fitness over any CrossFit type gym as I feel CrossFit is nice but does it wrong. The human body is not designed to go 100% of its max lifting capacity, day after day after day. It's why Crossfit Athletes burn out, get injured, and it's really a small demographic of people, most of which cannot run further than three miles. Warrior Fitness focuses on muscle building, cardio, and weight loss, but in the correct way. Through functional workouts, that anyone, at any age or fitness level can do, and as they become better, they do more. The class structure is simple. There will be 4-7 workout stations that rotate, from one to the next after a certain time interval. For example, 40 seconds of pushing a weighted sled, then 20 seconds of rest, then after two rounds, move to the next station. There is no boredom as once you hit a threshold, once your mind mentally wanders, you're on to the next exercise. Classes are generally fifty to sixty minutes, but it never feels that way. Classes are fast, they start, you go one thing to the next, and then it's done. The reason I love Warrior Fitness is simple, yes, they focus on getting stronger and all that. But more than anything, I get a great cardio workout, which to me, is the most essential aspect of any fitness plan. 2.I came to Warrior Fitness in "shape." I'm always in, call me tomorrow and I'll run a marathon, grapple or do pads for hours, climb a mountain kind of shape. It's taken a decade + of hard work for me to get here, with that said, Warrior Fitness has made me significantly stronger. I care very little for getting huge and muscular, as it doesn't benefit me much now or in the long term. Huge arms and a six-pack are worthless if your heart and lungs aren't healthy. I can say after joining Warrior Fitness, my cardiovascular threshold has increased exponentially. Am I toner, losing weight, yes, that comes with putting in the effort and eating healthy. But more important to me, everything I was going, I can do better now. That's huge. So if you are in shape, this is a gym for you, if you're out of shape, it's a gym for you. If you need a motivator, this is the gym for you. More...

A great place to start or continue your fitness journey. Paul caters to all levels but he never compromises on effort, making sure you always push yourself. I have jumped around gyms for a while and am extremely satisfied with my experience with warrior fitness so far. "The only easy day was yesterday." More...

The friendliest, hardest working, detail oriented, push yourself to the next level gym in the area. Whether you are 18 or 80, this is a gym where everyone walks in and grinds for one hard hour, and walks out knowing they got a workout. No texting between sets, no selfies on a treadmill, just hard hard work that pays off. If you're in shape, if you're out of shape, this is the best place for you. More...

Paul is an amazing person. I had no confidence in running but even worse any remembrance of how to even run. Paul helped. Little steps taken then little steps became quick steps . I still have much to go but I am further now than I was before. Only recommends the best for you. Grateful and humbled to have him as a trainer. ACL recovery. More...

If you are looking for a gym to push you and help you reach your goals; this gym is it. Paul brings intensity and an exceptional work ethic everyday. There is a saying painted on the wall at Paul's gym. "The only easy day is yesterday." And that is true. I have been a member since February and there has not been any easy day. Paul also takes the time to help you with your diet. We all know that is a big part of fitness. If you want to get lean and strong Paul and his staff will get you there. Don't buy into you are to far gone. Paul will break those doors down. Take a look at my pics. Also, the environment is phenomenal. No negativity, no judging, just hard work and positive reinforcement from everyone. See you there. More...

If you are looking for a small class, results guaranteed, judgement free zone this is the place. I dropped in on the free trial class and instantly became addicted. At that time my last workout was 7 years ago in high school, but the feeling of accomplishment after a hard workout was enough to keep me coming. You are coached every step of the way and the intensity is adjusted to your ability. It is challenging for absolutely everybody and everybody is at a different level. If you are consistent and follow the diet coaching you will see incredible changes to your body and mind every week. It is by no means the cheapest gym in town, but investing in your health will pay for itself in the long run by saving you surgeries, doctor visits, and other costly health care costs. Take control of your health and fitness today and drop in!! More...

I dropped into Warrior Fitness while I was in Fresno. It was an excellent class with a positive intense energy. Paul gave great motivational support during the workout and I plan on coming back to Warrior Fitness each time I'm back in Fresno.

Training is great! Paul always exceeds my expectations and pushes my limits, which makes me see really good progress from week to week. The gym is pretty exceptional. Plus there are multiple classes a week which makes it not crowded. Totally worth it! More...

I started about three weeks ago. At first I was a little weary about if this would match my goals. I’m a hiker who loves the outdoors, but I’m also physically way out of shape. In three weeks I have accomplished things physically that I would have thought would kill me. I walk the trails all over, and always have seen runners through the hills and mountains. My first week after evaluation I was convinced I could run a hill. 1 mile up I gave it my all. Because of the motivation and Paul pushing I made it up and down, and still worked an 8 hour day. That right there is enough for me to voice my support. I’m probably the most out of shape person there, but everyone who works out supports and pushes. Guys who blow me out of the water physically are there pushing me. Never once making me feel like I don’t belong. This is the place that will break you, but then make you to the goal you want to achieve. I love it here. More...

An amazing place to achieve your fitness goals. The staff and members create a friendly environment while maintaining effective and INTENSE workouts. Paul is excellent at tailoring workouts according to fitness level. So don’t sweat beginner status or your current shape, you will have plenty of time to sweat other things like pushing sleds, versa climber, weight training and a variety of intense activities. I attend this place with my wife and we also bring our children along. Paul has a youngster class, which my 10 year old daughter will start attending. It’s an all-around family event at Warrior Training! Stop by and check it out. More...

I've been going to this gym for over a year and I couldn't be more happy with the results. I'm stronger and I feel better than ever before. Paul and Jason give everyone personal attention and help with attaining fitness goals.When I first contacted Paul I told him I wanted someone to push me, because I couldn't seem to stay motivated myself. Paul definitely stepped up to the plate with phenomenal training. There are 4 group training classes everyday so it is easy to fit this training into my busy schedule. The workouts change all the time, so I never get bored with doing the same thing. There is even a OCR (Spartan, Tough Mudder) course 3 days a week that is some of the best training you can do to participate in the Elite Spartan category. More...

Warrior Fitness is AWESOME! I've been coming here a year this March. This is one of the best investments of my life and my self care. I've become so much more confident and assertive in many ways. The guys typically out number the females but we work just as hard. It is a very friendly place, welcoming, we all encourage each other to do better. Paul is great, very encouraging and dedicated to helping us all!!! (Sorry to hear about someone's bad experience but that is definitely not the reality of Warrior Fitness). More...

I am 49 years old. I had some crazy goals in mind, so I joined Warrior Fitness roughly 4 to 5 months ago. Since working out with Paul and the amazing people I have met, I have reached some fitness levels I have never been at before. I have gained 12 pounds in healthy weight and lost 2 inches in my waistline. I recently had my first complete medical physical in 20 years. My doctor called me . Asked me to call him about my blood work! Thinking something was seriously wrong, I called him back immediately. He said my blood work was perfect across the board! In fact he says my red and white blood cell count were elevated. He asked If I was doing "high altitude training". I replied no. Just working out at Warrior Fitness! He says stay with the program. It's working. I highly suggest to try Warrior Fitness. It will change your whole being for the better. More...

This is the best place ever! I am from Fresno but I live out of State. I flew into town and needed a kick- a-- place to workout. I found Warrior Fitness via Yelp and decided to try it out. Paul is legit. I showed up for the noon class and everyone (ladies and fellas') were welcoming, supportive and encouraging. The workout is no joke. You will be challenged and most importantly you will not feel out of place or uncomfortable. Everyone is genuinely friendly. Paul is dope. Period. More...

Warrior Fitness has changed my life in more ways than one.I am stronger than I have ever been in my entire life. As a result I also eat healthy and keep my weight to where I want it to be and my strength training at Warrior Fitness helps me so much in accomplishing this goal. Also we have a great team and unity among ourselves, we support each other. I have to say though what I consider my greatest accomplishment is what it has done to my mind. I have a strong PMA that I never had before. Guys join us! Thanks Paul! More...

I joined Warrior Fitness about 4 months ago. It only took the first class, which was free, for me to know that this is the right place for me. I absolutely love the workouts here! Paul will push you to your limits and break barriers that you previously thought were unattainable. People from all fitness levels and ages get a great workout here, no one gets left behind, and everyone is so encouraging. A big reason why I keep coming to this gym is because I am so motivated by Paul and the students that it is just a fun place to be.

I am an Elite Spartan racer and I needed something to get me up to the next level. In only working out at Warrior Fitness for a few months I have seen huge gains in muscle and ability. This has helped me so much in my Elite Spartan Racing. I can now breeze through obstacles that were difficult before.

Thank you so much Paul. You really are a badass trainer.

Warrior Fitness changed my life.
Paul saw in me what I never knew I had, and his belief that I could do this made me also believe I could.
Paul has mastered inclusion training- he is able to scale any work out so anyone can do it. It’s never easy but it’s always doable. He met me where I was (a lazy couch potato with a goal and a dream) and pushed me past my comfort zone and helped me attain my original goals and set new goals.
I seriously can’t say enough about Warrior Fitness, the trainers, the atmosphere, the team... everything is beyond awesome!!

Warrior Fitness has taken my workouts to an entirely new level. Paul "Brimstone" Watson is a fantastic mentor & trainer. He's mindful of each student's physical limitations and goals & can tailor exercises to each individual. My favorite parts are: Paul's inspirational; & he helps push everyone to new personal bests. I've even given myself a high-five after reaching a goal I didn't think was possible. It's very much a "Team" atomosphere & everyone's encouraging. If you're looking to be a super-amazing ninja - this is the place to go. Highly recommended! Woot! More...

Paul Watson (owner and trainer) pushes everyone in the group training sessions to break through barriers that you previously thought you could not acheive. He is very positive and everyone who trains there is helpful and encouraging. This is not a place that you can half ass workouts and spend most of the time texting. I've only been there a few weeks and I'm already seeing great results. Classes are only 45 minutes and you will work the entire time. Want to look better and feel better, give Paul a call. It would be great to see you out there. More...

I’ve been training with Paul Watson at Warrior Fitness for 11 months now and Paul had pushed me beyond my comfort zones and adjust my training to improve imbalances and weaknesses in my body. As a result I now feel stronger, leaner, has more energy, got great new muscles and motivated to do even better. Warrior Fitness Trainings are intense and can be painful at times but you will see huge change in your body in just a couple of months. We do a mix of Weight Training, High Intensity Interval Training, Intense Cardiovascular routines and a lot more. Paul keeps you motivated, constantly encouraging and pushing you beyond your perceived limits. He also emphasizes good nutrition and right supplements to support performance and recovery for a strong healthy you. Training at Warrior Fitness is now an important and enjoyable part of my life. From a couch potato into a gym rat who at times would train twice a day if my schedule allows. Best of all, Paul is a great guy and I can’t recommend his services enough.
