I am not, and have never been, a Gym Person. But that’s never been a problem here. Bold & Badass is so welcoming (regardless of gender, regardless of what your body is like), and is devoid of competitive fitness culture. We’re all in it together. It’s is one of the most empowering communities I’ve ever been a part of, and the coaches are especially cognizant of different abilities—they’ll make modifications to anything, for anyone, to make sure it’s safe. That’s not to say classes are easy, but there is no suffering worship here, only a relentlessly positive attitude that has pushed me much further than I ever thought I’d go. Liene Vērzemnieks
I was a bit apprehensive about working in a group situation—thought maybe I would be neglected. This was absolutely not the case and I was so impressed by the workouts that were given. I felt heard in my requests and adjustments were made as we moved through the weeks. I really have found the best experience I have ever had with training and highly recommend them to everybody no matter where you are at in your fitness journey! Brenda Bailey
I love this place. I cannot tell you how refreshing it is to go into a gym and not be rushed or pushed to unsafe limits. After years of CrossFit I learned that style was not for me and Bold & Badass helped me tune up many old injuries I had. I never thought I would be bench pressing or squatting again! Did I mention I was a smoker who over indulged in wine and beer to excess? Using an inhaler every day because I couldn’t breathe? Not only have I completely detoxified my system from that stuff but I am now biking to work almost every day and making healthier food choices. Best money I’ve ever spent. Caroline H.
I really enjoy the group classes here! It’s a welcoming atmosphere and the coaches do a great job of working with each person to give them attention and make sure their form is great! If there’s an adaptation needed the coaches are there to help so that everyone can get the most out of the workouts, but also be safe! No competitive vibe or judgement, just fun and sweat! I also appreciate coaches taking time to get to know their clients goals and share about themselves. Thank you for making it such a great experience! Courtney Rainwater
