I’m so grateful to Gritworks and how they have designed a program specific to my body in preparing me for the next level of elite competition.
I honestly didn’t know what Gritworks was all about until my coach and some friends of mine on my school BB team told me about the training they were experiencing there. I couldn’t be more excited for the results I have gained through Gritworks . They designed a weight and nutrition plan that far exceeded what I thought possible . We set goals for a 3 month time frame and the results are quite amazing . I have increased my Vertical jump significantly, gained muscle mass and had been pushed to get better and closer to my goals.
— Cole Bajema, Lynden Christian
Gritworks encompasses the total athlete! All three of my children have attended personal and group trainings over the past four years. I’m thankful for Steve, Michael and Alyssa, who provide a solid foundation of strength, mobility injury prevent and recovery. Gritworks exemplifies a safe and nurturing family environment where trainers are not just coaches but friends, confidants and mentors. Each of them really cares about building a well-rounded athletes and supporting them along their journey to be their best. I’m grateful for all that Gritworks provides and Steve and Michael and Alyssa have become a special part of our family.

I’ve committed to play college baseball, joined the thousand-pound club, and squatted 500 lbs. These things would not have been possible without training at Gritworks Athletics.
