The people in this gym have practically raised me. I've been training at SMA since I was a kid and the teachers have given me many life lessons I will always remember. They treat you like true family!

I went for a trial run this week. It's a great place. The staff is friendly and it was great working out with a group that was working for the same goals! Motivation is in the air and you are not judged by what you can't do, just encouraged to push to do your best. Would highly recommend.
