We also strive be the least judgemental, most supportive gym in Minnesota. We don't care where you're starting from.

We offer personal training in our private studio or online, as well as personalized nutrition & lifestyle coaching to maximize your results.

RECF makes fitness accessible to anyone, while building an amazing community that makes it fun to work out (really!). Workouts are always something different and challenging - in the right way for each person, for wherever they are on their wellness journey. The coaches creatively help support you through injury recoveries and other hurdles so you don't lose momentum, and always focus on challenging your limits while emphasizing quality and form over faster/heavier/more. And, when you need an extra boost, the personal training options are terrific and a great flexible option!! More...
Chris and Ripple Effect Community Fitness have created a great community. The atmosphere, the coaching, and the level of care is really high. I've been to a lot of gyms, and I haven't found anything close to what Ripple Effect has done. More...
As an older athlete, I feel very welcomed and the coaches scale everything perfectly for me. It's a super positive environment and the coaches care about us as individuals.
Ripple effect is a fun and supportive gym. They take ‘community fitness’ seriously. It is a place where you can come as you are and will be encouraged in your journey and where the staff genuinely cares. Some people are in amazing shape and some are not but everyone is treated like family. More...
RECF is the absolute best! We love our body-positive, inclusive little gym!
I joined Ripple Effect Community Fitness after my partner started there and would not stop raving about the gym, the coaches, and the community. We were members of the YMCA for a few years, but it just wasn't cutting it for us - we need more structure in our workouts and more accountability from the gym. We definitely have found what we need at RECF, though! Coach Chris and Coach Bryan, along with our fellow members, are incredibly body-positive and supportive. The on-boarding classes were a great way to start at the gym and get education/personalized training on body movements for future gym success. Over the past few months, I've slowly seen improvements in my form for things like squats and push-ups, and learned that there is so much more to being fit than the number on the scale. I'm really glad we have this community and this gym during the Covid-19 pandemic - it's what's kept me and my partner healthy and happy! More...
Chris and Bryan have more than just a gym - they've built an incredible community. If you're looking for a place to celebrate the wins, get encouragement through the tough times, and commiserate after a tough workout, this is it. I appreciate their holistic approach to wellness, where it's as much about the quality of your sleep and the amount of veggies on your plate as it is the number of burpees that you can do. Most of all, I appreciate that the workouts are scaled for a variety of fitness levels so that everyone leaves feeling accomplished. More...
