Tuff Girl Fitness is a private strength and conditioning facility where women come to become more. In an industry that promotes losing, we want you to gain. We want you to gain strength, power, confidence, self-esteem, body love and appreciation. We want you to realize your potential for greatness, and discover how awesome you are.

We are weekend warriors, athletes, mothers, and students, all with one common desire: to give all we have, be our best, and live greatly. We use dumbbells, kettlebells, barbells, TRX, jump ropes, weighted sleds, and many other tools to help you see what you are truly capable of. 

What we do in our gym goes way beyond getting fit and strong. We help people see how amazing they are and discover their awesomeness. This awesomeness trickles over into the daily lives of the women we coach and they leave our doors to accomplish incredible things.

What are you capable of? Come find out during a complimentary week of training. You can try our group strength and conditioning classes, our Kettlebell Strong program and FMA Performance, our powerlifting/barbell program. One week on us. 

Come as you are, leave a little bit better.

Schedule a Tour!

Still apprehensive about training with us? Let us put your mind at ease. Come in and meet with Tuff Girl founder, owner and coach, Christa. You can see our facility, watch a training in action, get a feel for what we offer, and ask any questions you might have.

Visits are done Monday between 4 and 6PM and Saturday between 8 and 10AM.
