"I have considered moving to Manhattan just so I could go to the foundation more often. Can’t wait till next time!"

"I come to work in Manhattan about every 2-3 months. While working is a drag, this place makes me excited. I have been to plenty of local chains, big box gyms but this place has a lot of traditional and newer equipment. I keep trying different routines and I can never try it all. It has workout equipment for whatever your goal. I have considered moving to Manhattan just so I could go to the foundation more often. Can’t wait till next time!"

"The Foundation has tons of unique equipment to train with. Definitely recommend checking it out if you're serious about your gains!"

"No doubt the best gym in Manhattan for anyone interested in bodybuilding, powerlifting, etc. This is a serious gym, and doesn't have the "wellness center feel" of typical corporate gyms. The staff and owner are extremely friendly and excited to see you succeed. There weren't many people lifting when I went in, but I could tell there was a strong family atmosphere. Tons of unique equipment to train with. Definitely recommend checking it out if you're serious about your gains!"

"I walked into the foundation one day, to just see what it was like, and left with a membership."

"I always hated going to the gym on campus because I felt like it was always crowded and I didn’t know how to properly use the equipment. I walked into the foundation one day, to just see what it was like, and left with a membership. The staff and atmosphere give me that boost every day to continuously better myself in this facility. I started training with Dave and honestly couldn’t have asked for a better trainer."
