I’ve been a part of many gym’s in the past, and I have never received the individualized attention and support that I receive from the staff and trainers at AFC. All of the group fitness classes make you feel like the trainer is working with you individually. They are supportive towards your goals and try to push you to be stronger than you thought you could be.
The gym focuses on building strength for a better body. The staff is encouraging and helps you to see the bigger picture of fitness (keeping your body healthy and not focusing on the scale).

AFC has been a game changer for my overall health. Between Personal Training with Faith and the MyZone challenges, I have been motivated and accountable for my fitness progress. Trainers are not only knowledgeable but actually care about their clients and make a genuine effort to know them. I no longer am a slave to the scale, but measure my success by how I feel, inside and out. Thanks AFC!

The trainers are seriously professional with their clients’ wellness as their #1 priority.
