Functional fitness, friends, and family
That is the story of MoMENTUM.
We opened our gym in 2012 with the hope to answer the need for functional fitness through strength training and cardio in the Tri-Town area (Frederick, Firestone and Erie). We wanted to help people of all walks of life and abilities become stronger and healthier. We wanted to help them find their inner strength and uncover or rediscover their inner athlete. There was a lot of “what we wanted” by opening a gym. What we got was ultimately much more than that.
The people here are a melting pot. From the former athlete who got lost in the grind of everyday life, to the moms and dads seeking some much needed personal time, to those who have never exercised a day in their life, to the elite models of fitness – these individuals are all unique in their own ways and have brought us more, taught us more, and given us much more than we ever expected. We provided the framework for them to overcome fears, tackle the unimaginable, and become better, faster, stronger versions of themselves. They have all achieved amazing improvements in their health and fitness, and we are very proud to be a part of that.
Over the years; however, they are no longer people we coach. They have become our friends. They are our gym buddies who are now sharing our passion for functional fitness. They are are our friends who share in the joys and triumphs of each other in the gym. They are friends who have held each other up through frustration and pain from a tough workout as well as the difficulties in real, everyday life. They have given of themselves to help make us successful.
We might run MoMENTUM like a gym, but the connection with people is what we are all about. The athletes who have walked through our doors have become our friends, and have made our gym to be THEIR gym. It started as a passion for fitness; it became about family.
Please stop by to witness our crazy, fitness loving family in action. There is always room for more.
