I started working out at HEW in May 2014 after I bought a groupon for a 5 week bootcamp. It was the best decision I have made for my fitness journey. Being an avid runner since I was 14 years old, I never had trouble getting motivated to workout, but after having my first child in April of 2013 the exhaustion from a newborn along with a time consuming job resulted in a year long hiatus from any physical workouts. I was nervous to start a 5 week bootcamp after taking a year off; however, the HEW staff were wonderful and made me feel at home immediately. After the 5 week bootcamp was complete, I joined the gym and 4 months after first walking through the doors I feel so much stronger than I have in years. A few of my favorite things about HEW are; 1.) all of the trainers make personal connections with their clientele 2) I feel motivated to show up daily because I want to continue to see improvements in my strength and skills 3.) everybody who attends has individual goals accompanied by a shared passion for fitness 4.) it's FUN - the workouts are challenging, but you are in great company and feel amazing afterward.Thank you to the HEW staff for always challenging me to become better and thank you fellow HEWers as you are wonderful company daily!

I started HEW in April as part of a 5 week boot camp! That was a life changing decision. I'm stronger and healthier than I've ever been. The coaches are amazing, knowledgeable and really encourage us all to do our best. No judgments. We are all at different levels, and all trying to improve daily and they understand that. They know everyone's name which is pretty amazing! I have joined gyms before and only went about twice a month which was a complete waste of money. HEW is a place you actually want to go every day! In the past four months, I've attended no less than four times a week! They have classes all day long from Monday - Friday starting as early as 5:50 am through 6:00 pm so it's really convenient for any work schedule, plus they offer two Saturday classes at 8:00 am and 9:00 am. The owners Nick and Caley genuinely care about their HEW family. I recommend HEW to everyone regardless of their fitness level. You will notice significant results after the first month.
After I completed my 5 Week Boot Camp; I had lost several pounds on the scale, but more importantly, I added several inches of muscle on certain parts of my body. Here it is 4 months later and I am still attending HEW (Hard Exercise Works)! If you are looking for a fun way to get into shape and feel and look better...then this is the Fitness Place for you! The trainers will spend time coaching you during the WOD's and also after each class for one on one attention. I now have dozens of new friends and we all cheer each other on and hold each other accountable. I have never been this committed to working out before and I love the 'Family' I have here at this gym. I could go on and on for days talking about this wonderful place; but truly, you have to experience it for yourself and you'll get addicted!!
I started HEW 6 months ago very out of shape, I was scared to do it, which meant I really needed to! But the moment I walked in the door it was unlike any other gym I had been to, its a community. Everyone cheers each other on and helps you finish your workout. The coaches, OUTSTANDING, always there to help and take a minute to answer any question, doesnt matter if you're new or been there for forever. You're greeted with a smile and they actually know your name. I felt like i was going to be judged because i was so out of shape (like all other gyms) but from the first minute i didnt feel an ounce of judgement and have been hooked ever since. this is the ONE gym and ONE exercise program that i have been able to stick with! i LOVE LOVE LOVE HEW!!!
About 3 months ago I decided to buy a groupon to Hard Exercise Works with the thought of spending 5 weeks learning new workouts that I could implement in the gym when my boot camp was over. While I did learn (and am still learning) new techniques, I found that doing them on my own is far less beneficial than when I go to HEW. The coaches push me to work harder and everyone there is positive and encouraging. The atmosphere is something you don't get at any other gym. Before joining HEW, I went to the gym a few times a week and did what I thought was exercise. But after becoming a member of HEW, I have never missed a day at the gym and have become stronger physically and mentally. I learn more about myself and my abilities every day.
My husband started going to HEW in March, and he kept coming home talking nonstop about the WODs. Being someone who has lifted weights and run their whole life, I was very intrigued yet very intimidated by the sound of the workouts. After my first WOD, I found that there was no need for the intimidation...all of the coaches work with you at your level and help you so that you can be successful. From day one, each of the coaches have known me by name and they create a relationship with each member. The workouts are super tough, but the people and the atmosphere make it fun!! My body is the strongest it's ever been, and I have worked muscles I never knew I had! Joining HEW has been the best thing I've ever done!!!
This is Carson. I'm 12 and before I started coming to Hard Exercise Works I wasn't positive of what I was capable of( I thought I was capable of a lot more than what I am). HEW figured that out for me and helped me improve along the way. HEW changed my perspective on gyms and workouts. Thanks HEW.I started coming to HEW about a month ago and I can't wait to go each morning! The trainers are so much fun and so encouraging, and the workouts are always about challenging yourself to see how far you can go. You always leave with a sense of pride and accomplishment, and can't wait to be back. HEW is now a part of my life, and I won't be leaving any time soon! Love you HEW!!!-Sydney Wood
HEW is truly a great and wonderful place! I found out about this place through a flyer that I picked up. Decided to give it a try, and what a wonderful decision this was. Truly amazing. The coaches are my Heroes, they are Encouraging, and the experience is Wonderful(HEW). I would definitely, highly recommend this gym to anyone and everyone that is looking for a true workout. As the name implies, when you walk in the door, you ALREADY KNOW, what you are in for, and the workouts don't fail to deliver!! The newest, most inexperienced person will be welcomed and motivated beyond belief, just as the most fit individual, by the coaches, as well as by fellow members.
About 4 months ago, I joined HEW on the recommendation of a friend. As an “outdoorsy” kind of guy, I was a little reluctant to commit to working out in a “box”. After a week, I was hooked. My fitness has improved immensely. The workouts offer a wide variety of challenges. The coaches are great- whether it is to give you a little extra motivation, to help refine your technique, or to find the right modification of an exercise that works for you. I’m a regular in the 6am class, and I couldn’t ask for a better bunch of folks to work out with. Motivation, support, and the occasional little friendly competition make it a routine I look forward to every morning.
Five months ago I decided to try Hard Exercise Works simply because some of my friends were going to try it. I'm glad I did. With them joining it was the final push to get me to get up and change my life. Since the first day of bootcamp to the present, I have seen many improvements in myself; not only physically, but also my outlook on life each day. HEW is not just a gym, it is a family. A family that motivates and cheers you on to challenge yourself and to push past what you personally feel you can accomplish. They also hold you accountable and remind you that the only person who can change how you look and feel is YOU!
