This is a great gym. It's clean, the equipment is nice and up to date. The staff here is very friendly. If you stop by be sure to say hi to Sandra at the front desk, she's awesome and so is Bunny. With being a busy gym they remember most everyone's name. The entire staff is pretty great. More...

I had a couple of sessions at No Excuse Fitness with Sybil and really liked my workouts here. I have a 24 gym membership but whenever I workout on my own I never really feel sore after my workouts or notice a difference. Sybil helped me put together great workouts that has me sore the next day. I also love how she would check in with me to make sure that the exercises I'm doing are okay since I have a few injuries and lower back pain. She's really sweet and I am glad she was my personal trainer. I would love to continue going here. More...

I can't say enough great things about No Excuse Fitness!  The trainers are all top notch and super nice.  I feel like I get a great workout in just 30 minutes.  I train mostly with Jay and he's one of the best trainers I've ever had.  He takes time to vary the workouts which usually target multiple muscle groups.  He's motivating, fun to train with and takes the time to correct and explain proper form.  They offer group training, are affordable and flexible with your schedule which is so helpful since mine varies from week to week.  Truly no excuses with this gym - you won't be disappointed!

I'm a returning customer and today was my first day back in over a year. This was the only thing that helped me lose weight in all my years of trying. At first I was too intimadated to even think about PT cuz you know, they're all fit and stuff lol but all these trainers are so dang nice. And they accommodate and work you out at ur pace. I was first introduced to Casey and I was scared at first cuz he's a fitness model but then I met him and he was just so genuinely nice! Our schedules didn't align so I'm working with Matt right now and he's so awesome and I feel absolutely no judgement. And of course the owner Richard has always been amazing. This place has it all, beginners or professional workouts. Very excited for this journey More...

No Excuse were extremely patient and even enthusiastic about working around my schedule and following up. The workouts were a half hour with a trainer and structured more like boot camp than focused strength training. I was already attending another boot camp gym so these workouts didn't compliment my routine but I also didn't say anything so the fault falls on me. I was satisfied overall. More...

I got through boot camp thanks to No Excuses Fitness. When i decided to join the Navy at the age of 28, i knew that i would need to begin working on undoing the sedimentary lifestyle i was accruing for the better part of a decade. I can honestly and wholeheartedly say, i wouldn't have been able to push through my boot camp training if not for the foundation i built at this place. When i first began at this gym, i was barely able to do 20 pushups consistently, and i couldn't even run a mile and a half straight through, let alone get a good time. In a short time, i was fitter, healthier,  and happier, ready to take on the road ahead. Today i can comfortably manage 60+ pushups, and my 1.5 mile was 12'18" most recently. Nothing to brag about for those in better shape than i was, but a major improvement for me. And i saw plenty of people tap out during our "intensive individual exercises," but i never did. And i owe that only to the work i put in at this gym. Great, honest people. Clean and effective facilities. And the music selection isn't half bad either. Would still be attending now, if not for being sent so far away!Thanks Rich. More...

Estar en el camp fue una experiencia maravillosa,fue la mejor decisión, lo recomiendo al principio pense q no lo podria hacer pero después me fui acostumbrado y lo logre,los maestros del camp super buenos tienen paciencia y te dicen si lo estas haciendo bien, fueron 6 semanas de mucho trabajo pero vale la pena los resultados. Te dan una guia de alimentacion y aparte me dieron mi tarea la tarea es ir al gym y hacer pesas entonces era ir al camp en la mañana y despues pesas con el entrenador y  si tu sigues paso a paso todo lo q te dicen q hagas vas a tener los resultados,la primer semana es duro pero ya la segunda semana es mas facil y rapido vas mirando el cambio en tu cuerpo,los cuartos son grandes con 10 diferntes estaciones para hacer tus ejercicios también tienes productos q te ayudan para tu alimentación estar en en el camp fue ina maravillosa esperiecia y me quede feliz con los resultados asi q no esperes mas ve y hazlo tu también note arrepentiras,The camp es como una familia todos se motivan para llegar a la misma meta,también esta abierto sabados y domingos es de lunes a viernes tambien hacen eventos para ir a las montañas y eso te vale dos clases cada dia q vas a la clase tienes q poner tu numero y asi llevas el control de cuantos dias llevas son 20 clases para calificar el parqueadero es grande nunca vas a tener problema con eso también venden camisas de camp cuaquier pregunta siempre hay alguien para ayudarte también tienen un tablero donde ponen los resultados asi te das cuenta como va tu proceso es increible los resultados,te pesan al principio y despues en el medio asi te das cuenta de tu proceso a lo ultimo te das cuenta si lo pudiste hacer o no otra de las cosas q mas me gusto es q tiene bien aire cuando estas haciendo tus ejercicios sientes el aire q entra y es gradable, tienes como tomar agua ellos tienen contenedores,me gusta q te ponen hacer ejercicios afuera y sientes la brisa,también nos ponen a correr al rededor,otra de las cosas q mas me gusta es la musica cada entrenador tiene su propio estilo,tienen clases desde las 5 de la mañana asta las 9am asi q puedes ir a cualquier hora asi q no hay escusas estoy segura q puedes ir y lograr tus metas los entrenadores son lo maximo,lo mas dificil es no tanto los ejercicios por que tu cuerpo se acostumbra lo mas dificil para mi fue la comida tienes q comer cada 3 horas 6 veces al dia yo empiezaba desde las 6 de la mañana y otra cosa lol no puedes tomar locor eso también fue duro pero si tienes diciplina lo vas hacer y te vas a sentir tan bien contigo misma el proximo challenge es en 4 de junio no esperes mas ve note arrepentiras .

This gym is PERFECT for someone that is wanting to get fit in a good environment and on a budget! The prices here are so adorable compared to all the other gyms in the area. The gym is always clean.

She always has great workout plans that make you work hard to get to your goals!! I am so thankful I found this gym! I love coming here and actually like working out. Having a trainer like her who is fun and innovative makes me actually want to come to the gym (and I don't normally like going).

5 stars because the workouts are fantastic and I believe their prices are fair. I got the 5-pack Groupon just to gauge where I'm at athletically. My first training sesh was with Michelle and she was great! We did a circuit-style training with weights and core exercises for about 30 minutes. The trainer I was with for the rest of the sessions was Casey, who was also great. My only criticism is is that the program advertises itself as a 1 hour personal training session when it's really 30 minutes...but I'm not complaining because the prices are reasonable. You do 30 minutes of personal circuit style training then are advised to use either a treadmill or elliptical machine for 30 minutes. I usually did about 15-20 minutes on the machines because I get bored easily ha. I'm also not a big fan of using machines because I already have a treadmill at home (that I don't use) and I go for runs outside. They have complimentary water bottles, juice, and towels for you which is nice. Appointments are easy to make via text or calls. Everyone I've met here is very nice and welcoming. I may return if I can afford the regular prices but for now I will implement what I learned into my workouts when I have a gym membership again or try out another program! The gym is pretty small and hidden but enough for a training location. It's a bit funny that it's right next to Wendy's so after your workout you can relish in the smell of French fries and burgers LOL.Thank you! :) More...

Working with David at No Excuse Fitness was a transformative experience.  Although in good shape, I had hit a plateau and had tried everything to get that elusive six-pack including working with other personal trainers.  Immediately, David had me adjust my diet accordingly.  He gave me a precise breakdown of how many calories to eat as well as a food diary to track my progress.  The fat started coming off at once, and with no muscle.  David also devised workouts that taxed my body in new ways.  He is by far the best trainer I've worked with and got me immediate results.  Absolute game-changer.

Prior to signing up with No Excuse Fitness, I had never had a personal trainer before. I signed up because I had a goal: I just had a baby, gained some weight, and had to fit into a matron of honor dress for my sister's wedding in 4 months at the time. I was paired up with Maya who was so welcoming and immediately made me feel comfortable. We trained 3x's a week, although sometimes less as life gets busy. But she was really flexible and very understanding of my situation. I lost a total of 16 lbs and still losing today. Dieting can only go so far, especially with little to no exercise. Training with Maya taught me everything that I need to know in order to do it by myself and keep off the weight. If you're still on the fence about whether to sign up or not, I definitely recommend that you do! More...

I have been working out here for a year and half, and I love coming to this gym. I train with Rigo. He is wonderful and very patient with me. I haven't always been the best client, since I'm always running late. He holds me accountable for it though and also really pushes me to adopt a healthy lifestyle all around, which has been hard since I have the palette of a 12 year old. When I first started working out here, I had the worst posture, including the grad school hump. He has really worked with me in strengthening my core, glutes, and back. Now my posture is so much better, and I've even grown an inch! Rigo also worked with me through a tough 6 months after I ruptured a couple of discs in my spine. Between the physical therapy, soft tissue manipulations, and my workouts my back is stronger than it's ever been. I have also worked out with Maya when Rigo was on vacation, she is a lot of fun and a really good trainer. And she hula-hoops! I trained with Nigel once or twice, he also is very good. The whole staff is friendly and welcoming, the facilities are clean and organized, and it doesn't have that gym rat feel to it. Some days it can be a bit of a sausage fest in there, but most of the time there's an even number of men and women working out and training. It can be hard to find at first, since it's tucked away behind a Wendy's. If you're thinking about starting, do it. That's the first step, and keep in mind we all started somewhere so don't feel like you have to come into the gym an expert on exercise, the trainers here will get you going and don't make you feel bad if you're like me and completely clueless on how the body is supposed to move!

No Excuse Fitness is fantastic! I've been a member at many gyms both large and small and had many trainers. No Excuse is hands down a great place to get and stay in shape. The place is clean and big enough to not feel crowded. You can't beat their price for the quality of services you receive.  Rigo is my personal trainer and kicks my butt every session. I never thought I'd say this but I look forward to whatever workout he has in store for me each session. He knows how to push his clients hard but not over the edge. He has a great attitude and positive energy that is motivating. He also gives you nutritional guidance to follow as part of his program. Rigo is the best trainer I've worked with. His workouts provide far better results than I would get on my own as well as better and more consistency than I've received working with other trainers. I highly recommend Rigo, he's an awesome trainer that produces amazing results. If you want to reach your full potential sign up with Rigo he will get you there. More...

I just started two weeks ago with Carter as my trainer and I'm truly loving this place! It all started when I went to get an acai bowl from Banzai Bowl and saw some flyers for a free personal training session. I thought why not? Best decision I ever made! The training is intense with different exercises but my trainer never makes me feel bad for not being in the right form or when I start to struggle. He praises me simply for trying my best and can tell when I'm starting to struggle and then works around that with a different exercise or a lower weight. It's very encouraging and I'm always leaving sweaty and sore! (in a good way). I have to say I've been a lot happier since I've tried this business, maybe it's the endorphins? I have been sedentary for a year since working an office job and have been highly demotivated putting on 20 pounds over the course of a year. I've tried yoga and bootcamp classes and always end up not going because I just don't have that motivation that only comes from the inside. For some reason, No Excuse Fitness makes me feel accountable to myself knowing that I have to put in the work to get results. It's just easier to feel motivated when you have a good personal trainer there for you. Plus, when you feel sore continuously after every workout, you know you're working those muscles! Thanks Carter! Highly recommend ! More...

Incredible results!!! I highly recommend this personal training program. I've been going twice per week for about 4 weeks now. I started noticing results within the first two weeks. So far I've lost 5 pounds of fat and gained 6 pounds of muscle. I've tried multiple boot camp and cross-fitness programs and this is so much better because you get one-on-one training and actually learn the proper technique instead of rushing through the boot camp routine.

I started training at No Excuse Fitness approximately 4 weeks ago. First, I love the way the program works. You pay for a fixed amount of sessions to use within a 30 day period. That incentivizes you to go to all your sessions and be consistent. Second, I noticed the fat burn off my belly after 3 weeks! I'm petite, so for me, weight is not an indicator of whether I'm getting results. However, I train with a friend and she lost 6 pounds in 2 weeks. She is a bridesmaid in a wedding this weekend and the dress is sliding off her body! Literally, the fat on my body is progressively burning off. Legs are firmer, bum is perkier. We are seriously hooked! Do yourself a favor and sign up so you can start to feel even more amazing about yourself. If you don't want to go at it alone, find a friend! Tandem training also mitigates the cost!  P.S. My friend & I train with Richard and Carter. Both are great and push you to the brink! More...
