ABOUT US

WHAT WE OFFER

Group Fitness Classes – All of our group fitness classes are included in your membership. Every class is written by the trainer who instructs it. Every one of our group trainers is certified in either Russian Kettlebell Certification (RKC), has a personal training certification from an accredited institution, has a degree in health and exercise sport science, or a combination of all. Our mission in group classes is to provide members with structure, guidance, and accountability in the group setting.

To keep the quality of our classes high, we require all new participants to undergo a proficiency session prior to attending classes. Regardless of where you came from or what your background is, we require everyone to do this. So please, don’t assume you are too advanced for this session. It’s free, and it’s mandatory.

Freeweight and cardio equipment – Our freeweight selection is one of the best around. The gym is filled with Power Lift and Hammer Strength equipment, which is durable and effective. Squat Racks and Deadlift platforms help designate space and keep the areas clean. We offer over 20 bars including deadlift, safety squat, swiss, EZ-curl, and hex bars. Our Ivanko dumbbells go up to 180lbs. A double cable-crossover system gives you 7 stacks of weights.

You have access to 12 treadmills, 2 step-mills, ARC trainers, Concept 2 rowers, upright bikes, recumbent bikes, and assault bikes in our cardio area.

Gymnasium – The BrickHouse Gymnasium and outdoor facility is your new location in eastern Polk County for rentals, leagues, and tournaments. Our indoor gym offers a regulation-size basketball court. With the dividing curtain, multiple court configurations are possible for basketball and volleyball. A 2-lane walking track circles the courts.

Outside you will find a ⅓ mile paved running track that wraps around the property. Two sand volleyball courts host summer leagues and are also available for rental. A picnic shelter is free to rent and sits right next to a large green field for open-play.
