They kick your butt every class (figuratively) and challenge you to work your hardest. Both Caitlin and Vernon are great people and they have a shared love for CrossFit.

If you’ve known me for a while you know that I wasn’t big on working out or eating healthy. When I first went to clandestine I thought it’ll be like those times where I go one day and skip 10. .. but the shock was I kept going day after day. The trainers are incomparable and the people that go there are the nicest. Clandestine is my second home!!! The support, the encouragement, the motivation you can find all that at clandestine strength and conditioning!! You go look at the board and think to yourself “that’s impossible I can’t do that”, but believe me YES you can! Get yourself trainers like mine and you can definitely do that! I wouldn’t replace clandestine for any other gym... More...

Clandestine started as a way for me to introduce some accountability into my fitness and hopefully better myself along the way. I quickly realized that I was in for much more. Vernon and Caitlin’s ability to dedicate themselves to this gym and it’s members has me absolutely floored. They’ve helped me rehab and train through a back injury, improve my overall outlook on nutrition and fitness, and absolutely smash personal records beyond expectation. Clandestine S&C is a treasure to this community and I couldn’t be more proud to represent them with any opportunity I get. More...

I look forward to going to Clandestine for a workout every single time because I know I'm going to be challenged and feel great afterwards. Vernon and Caitlin are so good at working with everyone no matter their fitness level or age. It's not a one size fits all approach, but rather very individualized. I'm 66 and I have never felt better or stronger in my life! I feel completely safe under their watchful eye and over the last three years have noticed a huge change in my strength level and stamina. The people I work out with are very encouraging too. We all cheer each other on. Never thought a workout could be so much fun - but they are!!! More...

If you want expertise and care and fun, this is the perfect gym for you. Caitlin and Vernon are incredibly knowledgeable coaches, and are able to tailor your workout to exactly what your body needs. The workouts certainly are challenging, but I've never felt that my safety was in jeopardy. The community that they've been here is incredible too! I've always felt encouraged, and it's that feeling that has empowered me to get through that last set of burpees!! They play great music and often have fun "games" sprinkled in throughout their workouts (ie. LOVE "rowling"). All around great energy, great coaches and you will feel like a rockstar after... albeit probably quite sore. ;) If you have a chance, check out Clandestine Strength! More...

I was new to Minnesota and CrossFit when I came across Caitlin and Vernon. They have taught me so much over the course of months that I’ve been with them. Anytime you contact Caitlin, she answers. They have become my fitness family away from home over the course of time. Thank you so much Caitlin & Vernon !! More...

Best gym ever!! Amazing results! Great people, it is really more than a gym - more like a family! I used to hop around from gym to gym, never finding one I loved but I've been at this one for over 2 years now and will never leave! The coaches are brilliant - not just in workouts/lifting but also in nutrition, sleep and injuries - they can and will modify workouts for you! More...

My wife and I could not work work out together because we had different goals in the gym, different experiences with working out, and different skill sets. Clan strength takes all of this and makes certain that you have a positive experience in the gym. Safety, education, and a few beads of sweat throughout. This community has been a game changer to my physical state, mental state, and something for my wife and I to bond over. If you are in the market for a community that works with you to push you in the right direction, this is a place you NEED to give Clan strength a shot. More...

I cannot stress how fantastic this gym has been for my fiance and I. We brag about Clan daily and look forward to going every night. Vernon and Caitlin have invested so much time with clients to help assess, create, and obtain goals.

From the knowledge and expertise of the coaches to the friendly and driven members, Clandestine is nothing short of excellent. There is a constantly varying arrangement of work outs that on days will leave you more exhausted than you ever thought you could be but in return not only build your physical but mental capacity. If you want to turn weaknesses into strengths and fellow members into friends, come to Clan. More...

I could write a book on how much I love this place, but I’ll keep it short. I don’t know what I would do without Vernon, Caitlin and the community that trains here from all walks of life. It’s more than just a place to “go work out” and you feel how special it is on your first day. Your pushed past what you think are your limitations and gain a new self confidence. Anything I’ve been asked to do in the last 3 years of coming here I’ve never felt that my safety was in jeopardy. You can visually see that the staff cares about your wellness and improving in whatever aspects in life that you share with them. This is the way training should be started and continued. I’ve never felt peer pressured to drastically change my nutrition or start on any fad diets. The changes come little by little with casually talking to the staff. You can NOT find a more individualized coaching staff than at Clandestine. One of the best kept secrets in Dakota county. More...

I'm writing this review because I miss this gym so very much! I'm amazed at how Vern and Caitlin always seem to remember what each of their clients is striving towards. Even though classes are taught in a group setting, they still find ways to individually challenge each member. Being a part of this gym puts you in direct contact with others who are working for one goal or another. The environment is great for all levels and the community aspect is what makes it worth the investment. More...

Q&As

I help my clients achieve their fitness goals by individualizing their programming and adjusting the approach to fit each client's goals and needs. As my client, I also take the time to sit down with you and discuss what you hope to get out of personal training. Our partnership will include an endgame established at the start, so you'll always know what we're working towards. We'll also work together on nutrition and lifestyle habits to help you reach your goals in a way that is sustainable and enjoyable.

Consistency! There really are no quick fixes that last. However, there are steps you can take over time that, once they become habit, are easy (and even fun) to do. The hard part is repeating these steps long enough for them to become habit! Once they become habit, they become your lifestyle. Consistency bridges the gap between habit-building and lifestyle.

Being a part of someone's journey toward a healthier, more vibrant and beautiful life.

I was inspired to start my own business when I realized that I had a lot of knowledge, experience, and compassion that I was just sitting on, and there were lives that I could affect in a positive way. I finally realized that if I wanted to make a difference, I would need to start spreading what I know and love, and open up for business!

Not only do we use a high quality, proven training methodology, but we also care deeply about your progress and your well-being. If you are looking for a compassionate personal trainer who can help you reach the next level and achieve more than you can even imagine is possible right now, Clandestine Strength can deliver for you.
