Why us?

As a business/gym, we have history. We have been in business for over 30 years and bring a unique blend of the past into the present.

As an individual, I bring passion, education, and experience to personal training/fitness. There is no one in this area that has more experience in fitness than I do. I practice what I preach. I've competed in bodybuilding, powerlifting, Spartan Race, half-marathon, 10k's, 5k's, so on and so forth. I am a professional drug-free bodybuilder.

What They Say

Quinton as a new owner has been exceptional in improving it’s atmosphere and overall experience. I started personal training and it has been a very comfortable process and transition from my usual lifestyle. It is a wonderful place to stop by!

I always loved coming in to the victory gym. After high school this place played a big role in not only my mental health but helped me with my physical heath as well. This place always felt like home. Although I have not been in since new Ownership I know Q is going to take good care of the place and do whatever it takes to turn something good into something great! Keep up the good work Q. God speed brotha. 🙏🏻💪🏼 I’m happy the future Generation of Braves and The Alumi will be able to find an enjoyable place to workout and attain their fitness goals!

I love it here, had 2 levels for one to get their fitness on. Quinn, the owner is an amazing guy! I come in on my schedule due to the gym being 24 hours, you can’t beat that. Members are friendly and courteous. You don’t have anyone interrupting your workouts and it is clean. I highly suggest this gym to anyone passing by looking for a quick workout or one just moving to town.
