Bars & Stripes Fitness
Work Hard, Live Free, Stay Hungry
We SEEK to create a gym that helps people not only lose weight, but gain muscle to become stronger, faster, and better - to see not just what their bodies look like, but are capable of. We provide open gym access to people who know what they’re doing, and training for those who don’t - average moms, dads, and working age adults.
Most gyms have a policy of non discrimination, but rarely enforce it in effect. Our team has a history of enforcing it, and making the tough decisions for our clients, members and staff in order to preserve this, often gaining a following as we go due to our integrity when it comes to our philosophy that everyone should have access to one basic privilege: the ability to become the best version of themselves.
What is BSF... and what do we do?
Bars & Stripes Fitness (BSF) exists to train middle aged warriors to reclaim their fitness and/or take it to the next level.
We want those people who have been told they can't do something. Our middle aged, our men, our women, those who have been mistreated or undertrained by other gyms.
We are uniquely qualified to do so because we have started from the ground up, working through all tiers of training and management, from trainer to training manager to studio manager and now studio owner.
And all in a relatively short amount of time,
Our trainers are award winning, with multiple certifications, and much experience both competing and training people to compete, as well as in training people to overcome injury and limitation.
We sell guided solo training, group training, and one-on-one personal training structured around strength and performance, and corrective exercise.
Bars & Stripes Fitness provides empowered fitness training to people who have been told they couldn’t do something, and they choose us over others because they know we’ll make sure they can.
The mission of BSF is to help strengthen individuals both physically and mentally, through strength and performance training, by removing barriers and obstacles that might keep people from having access to training otherwise: age, gender, cost, time, gym size, and location.
The secondary barriers we eliminate are discrimination and stereotyping.
Established in November 2015 as an online fitness training tool, we have been in part time business for 6 years now.
