I was looking for a new workout and happened to see the post for the 6 week challenge soI made an apt to talk with Manny. After talking with him I was confident that the gym, meal plan, workout and coaches would help me hit my first goal of losing 20 lbs and getting more physically fit. Well 6 weeks later I lost 25 lbs and feel great! All of the coaches (Chris, Kim, Jeremy, Chad & Lynn) are awesome. They are always being supportive and push you past your comfort zone without making you feel intimidated. The challenge people are on an app so everyone can share success stories and support for one another. The meal plan at first was confusing but after that worked great. I love this gym and look forward to working out there so much I officially joined! Its great to be part of the Independent Family!

I decided to take the 6 week challenge at independent. The coaches who run the cardio boxing/kickboxing classes are experienced and show you all the techniques. Everyone in the gym is friendly and positive. There are also people in all stages of expertise, so I felt very comfortable being a beginner. At the end of the six weeks, I had lost 27Lbs and best of all had fun throughout the whole process.

This place is amazing! I started here a year ago wanting to just hit a bag for stress relief and instead was surprised with a group of trainers who genuinely cares about the health of people who come through the door. These guys are amazing trainers from anything fitness/weight loss and meal prep advise up to advanced MMA. Could legit live here but my husband would miss me 🤣
