CLIENT TESTIMONIAL

All the trainers are great and really focus on individual needs.

– Christy Pauly

The Grind is one amazing place with such great people that are more than willing to work with anyone!! If you are an athlete trying to improve your game the grind is the place to go! If you are trying to get back into working out and want to find a great place the grind should be your choice!!! Chico and Dean have really created something amazing!!! It’s only getting better!!

– Brittney Krodinger

The Grind is a great place for athletes to improve their performance in their sport or for someone looking to shed a couple pounds to get their summer bods. I have been attending The Grind for roughly a month now and I work out 4 times a week. Each and every workout has been different and believe me, I have seen incredible results. Not to mention, the facility is HUGE and has state of the art equipment! And on top of the amazing facility, I would say the next best thing about The Grind would be the personal trainers. They are incredibly knowledgeable, make the workout fun, and they truly care about their clients. Go with The Grind and you will not be disappointed!

– Brian Eichelberger

The staff is great. They are all athletes and former athletes that understand what it takes to be the best player you can be. I watch and see my son spending a lot of time working on the small things that I feel most trainers overlook. They start by performing a physical assessment of the athlete by running the athlete through a variety of physical tests to determine what areas need the most work. My son was weak in balance drills that involve a lot of ankle strength and stability. We didn’t even know that this was an area that needed work. They began working on his weaknesses day one. I have no doubt that The Grind is the best place for him.

– Brian Eichelberger

I can’t brag enough on how awesome The Grind has been for us! We have been going to The Grind for roughly a month and a half and it’s been an amazing experience. The staff is amazing and so understanding to your needs and working towards your goals. Chico Orlando has helped us in finding our motivation to get back to have a fit lifestyle again! He motivates us to become stronger. We more than appreciate what Chico has done for us! You guys rock!

– Megan Siemers

The Grind is amazing! Very knowledgeable staff and able to have a coach by your side pushing you through every exercise. Whether you just want to lose some weight or are training for your next competitive season I would recommend checking out The Grind.

– Jake Hayes

I’ve been working out with Chico for a about a month now. I’m absolutely loving the way I feel other than being sore, but that means we’ve been working! Chico understands that I came from not knowing anything other than cardio so he patiently explains and builds me up as weeks go on. The gym is always clean, the lady at the front desk is super nice, and the Grind staff is very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this gym to everyone!

– Jamie Featherston Taylor

The Grind is the best place in the region to become your personal best at whatever it may be! Do something for yourself and give yourself the gift of health and fitness!!

– Nicole Krodinger

This place is a most go to if u are ready to live life to the fullest!!! The Grind is a great place to work out!!! But honestly I have to say the thing that makes the Grind the best place is the trainers, Chico Orlando and Dean Bryan are amazing! Last year I found out I was pregnant and was so afraid because I was already super over weight! So I tried my best and luckily my perfect baby boy and I were healthy the whole time.

– Nadia Pashia

To say the least, I’ve never been to a gym better than The Grind. I continuously learn new ways to improve my physical capabilities thanks to the amazing staff of Dean, Chico, and Michele. I’ve never met more driven people who sincerely care and have a strong desire to help every single person succeed in their goals. They have a crazy amount of knowledge behind fitness and athletic training. I’ve personally been working out with Dean Bryan for 5 years now and throughout multiple injuries, he still managed to go above and beyond to create workouts that avoided my limitations but still kept me strong and in shape. HIGHLY recommend to any person of any age with ANY kind of fitness goal or even physical limitations.

– Jenny Kohl

I’ve never been one to “have fun” while working out, usually it’s something I dread, until I started working out at The Grind!!! Chico has totally changed my mentality about health and fitness and working out is something I look forward to every week now! The facility is always clean and a professional environment! I’m so so so glad I gave The Grind a chance!

– Chelsey Halton

I love working out with Joe. He is enthusiastic, upbeat and makes working out fun. He is encouraging and strives for me to do my best during every workout.
Joe put me through a series of exercises to assess my abilities and establish a starting point. From there was able to create an individualized workout that fit best for my desired results.. I highly recommend this facility and Joe as your personal trainer.

– Jona Pollo

Our daughter has been training with Chico for a couple of years and has been at The Grind since they opened. She’s an undersized middle, 5’ 10”, and playing a year up w/ 18’s on her VB team. As we’ve watched the season unfold her jumping has become more consistent and it seems higher!! (Waiting on verification at testing next week.). However it was pretty cool to watch her get a couple of blocks on 2 different D-1 recruits, Florida & Louisville, at a qualifier in Nashville last month!!

– Jeff Luby

The Grind is awesome! All of the trainers are so nice and their dedication is unmatched! If you are looking for a new place to train, this is the place to go. They offer personal training, small group classes, athlete sessions and Zumba.. and the atmosphere is pretty cool. Check them out!

– Ashley Mann

Mainly I’ve trained with Chico, but all of the trainers are excellent. They’re educated, always offer explanation about the targeted area of each exercise, and ready with a modification for those that need it. The facility is well-equipped and very clean. In all, these professionals are invested in those they are training. Their #1 priority is assisting clients in reaching their goals.

Chico and his staff are great! I Hope all my boys hard work pays off this season.

– Casey Kite

My 16u softball team attends the grind weekly- they absolutely love it and myself as a coach loves the time Chico and his team puts into each workout. He takes the time to explain the correct way to do each exercise which I appreciate because I see so many younger athletes working out with improper form. Chico pushes my girls and they are getting quicker and stronger each week. Thanks for all you do!

– Amanda Mohan

The best personal training in St. Louis. I’ve had many trainers in the past but never had this much attention and focus like I get at The Grind! I’m stronger than I’ve ever been and pain free!! Thanks to Chico and his amazing team!!

– Stephanie O’Neal

If you’re looking to get better as an athlete or even just trying to get back in shape this is the place to do it!!! Chico is extremely knowledgeable and can personalize a program to get the results you’re looking for!!

– Matt Osborne

Very dedicated staff that takes a personal interest in each athlete to achieve his/her goals.

– Jennifer Clancy

Just want to give a huge thank you to Chico Orlando for being such a dedicated and experienced trainer! It’s almost been two years for me working out with you and I feel better every day! Over 70 pounds down I’m so thankful for your help. So if anyone is looking to lose weight and gain strength you should call the Grind!!

Athletes, it is not only your talent, but your physique- The Grind can help make that happen!
The Grind supports my son’s desire to make it to the next level in baseball.

If you are looking for a a great place to turn yourself into the best you there is this is the place. The grind is ran by two people who are very motivating and push you each and everyday. I have worked out with my chico for the past year and he is the best there is. Not only does he motivate you to be healthy and more fit bit also motivates you to be a better person all around. I have only known dean for about a year but he is the same, always giving good advice and helping everyone in every way he can. I also did the weight loss challenge and the workouts and motivation from that was great. The grind to me is more like one team of people trying to help everyone around them be better. If your interested in a better life this is the place for you

– Cheryl Orlando

I will be headed into my 3rd month at The Grind tomorrow. I could not be happier with my progress. As a busy husband and father of 7 children, Chico Orlando and Dean Bryan have worked within my capabilities and brought me around to the point where I am extremly excited to see where the next block of training takes us. It is great to aww the scale going down, to feel flexible, to not ache, and to actually feel strong again. I cannot thank them enough for the very personalized attention that they provide during our short 1 hour sessions. They help hold me accountable to not only getting the work in, but to insure that the work gets done the proper way. I could not recommend them any higher. Go see them and get your Grind on!!

– Chris Creed

I can honestly say that I had never truly “lifted” weights, until I started working with Coach Bryan and The Grind. Each time I train with him, I can feel myself getting stronger both physically and mentally. When we workout he pushes me to my max and demands my best, every rep, every set, every time. I believe that my game has evolved, unlocking the next level of potential that I am capable of achieving and I attribute this to all of the work Coach Bryan has done with me in the weight room as well as on the field. Coach continues to push me to be great in the weight room as well as on the field. He has a genuine concern for me as an athlete and a person. I am very fortunate and thankful to have him as a trainer. If you want to take your game to the next level I highly recommend you go train at The Grind. You will see your game elevated and you will not leave the same as you came

This place is a most go to if u are ready to live life to the fullest!!! The Grind is a great place to workout!!! But honestly I have to say the thing that makes the Grind the best place is the trainers, Chico Orlando and Dean Bryan are amazing! Last year I found out I was pregnant and was so afraid bc I was already super over weight! So I tried my best and luckily my perfect baby boy and I were healthy the whole time. But 2 months ago I was so out of shape and gained more weight then when I was pregnant. I knew something had to change. Luckily I found Chico and the Grind. He knew and understood just how badly out of shape I was. so he started me slow and just in these 2 months my life is already changing. I’m down 22 pounds and I can move. so all I can say is if I can do it so can anyone. I could have never done it without the grind and a special thanks to chico!

– Nadia Pashia

Dean Bryan goes above and beyond in the interest of his clients. He has a superior background in his knowledge of personal training and athletic training and knows how to work with individuals according to their needs. He works very well with athletes and has personally helped me improved more in my physical capabilities and even mental challenges than I ever could on my own. He not only helps push me further but he educates me on the why and how process of each movement in the exercise. He genuinely cares about helping each person regardless of busy schedules and will go out of his way to help his clients. I highly recommend this to any individual of any age looking to improve their fitness on a whole new grind.

– Jenny Kohl

Great place with great staff! I am incredibly sore after each work out (good thing) so I know I am being challenged. Highly recommend for anyone! If you are an athlete looking to improve your performance or just a person looking to shed a couple pounds, then look no further, The Grind is the perfect place for you!

– Tyler Ludwig

Our daughter competes in a niche sport where off ice training is critical. She had struggled with finding a local trainer. After meeting Chico through friends, she couldn’t wait for him to set up shop at The Dome and hasn’t looked back! Chico immersed himself in learning what her sport requires and tailors her program to meet those needs. He inspires her to be her best in sport/life by emphasizing the importance of all aspects: fitness, nutrition, recovery, focus, and attitude. She finished her season with PRs in all distances. Thanks Chico, you’re the best!!

– Diana Quinn

The Grind has an awesome facility and the environment is great! Always playing music and motivating you to be great.

– Brittney Krodinger

The Grind is a place where you go to be great. After every awesome workout with Chico i think of how much closer to success i am getting as well as bettering myself physically and mentally as an athlete. Dean, Chico, and Kenny go above and beyond to make sure each client is being the best they can be and achieve their goals at a quick, yet healthy pace. I’ve been going to The Grind since February and am up about 25 pounds, feeling way faster and way stronger. Definitely the best training facility in STL!!!

– Zach Adamec

This place is an awesome place to work out! Very affordable compared to other gyms and the staff is excellent in showing their clients proper form, working hard to help each person reach the goals theyhave set out for themselves, and creating a fun environment for all ages. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to reach their goals!

Best place to workout. Kenny and Chico are the best. I would highly recommend working out here, it’s the best!

– Sarah Slominski

My daughter started working out at the Grind a year ago with her best friend just to get in shape for softball. She had been dealing with a shoulder injury for years that would come and go. When Dean found out about this injury he personally worked with her physical therapist to keep her therapy continuous, and it helped tremendously. After insurance quit paying for PT, she continued 2 – 3 days a week with the Grind and within 2 weeks she was finally pain free. She continues to see Dean and the rest of the Grind personal trainers 2 days a week and once a week with her team. The trainers all take the time to know my kids strengths and weaknesses. I would recommend The Grind for any personal training needs, whether it’s recovery from an injury or just getting in shape, they are the BEST! Oh, and my kid has FUN while working out…that says a lot about the staff!!!

– K Kaikkonen

Awesome facility! Dean is very knowledgeable and able to tailor workouts to help build up strength after a surgery. My daughter has a different workout each time she trains. I would recommend The Grind to anyone looking for a great workout with a fun and caring staff.

I am in the best shape of my life thanks to Grind Fitness! BEST in St. Louis!

I have been taking my son to the Grind since he was 12. He loves all sports and our small group sessions have been perfect in helping him develop his strength in different areas. We have been with multiple trainers and each one is very knowledgeable! Would recommend the Grind to children and adults!!

– Amie Jarvis

Great experience working with Chico and the gang. They customized an excellent work out plan for my girls fastpitch team. Loved how they had new things every session. This is the place to train if you want to become a better athlete.

The grind is an amazing facility, with a staff that works great at developing youth athletes. All the trainers do a great job coaching youth athletes while treating each of them with respect. I would highly recommend The Grind to anyone looking for some extra push to achieve their next goal!

– Blaine Chazelle

Talk about the absolute best strength and conditioning facility for an independent team that doesn’t have their own training facility. Not to mention, the absolute best staff – they are absolutely amazing. I have been working with them for just under a year now and they are simply the best to work with. Absolutely reasonable in every sense of the word including anytime it snows they will allow us to reschedule with no penalty. They are the best of the best thanks again GRIND!!!!!

– Steve Bovinett

I’ve been going to The Grind for a couple of months now and I have yet to find another place that does as great of a job training as they do. The staff is incredible, their intensity and motivation is truly unmatched. I was constantly pushed outside of my comfort zone in order to get stronger and faster. I went back to Missouri State in the best shape of my life, all thanks to Chico. I HIGHLY recommend going to The Grind.

All of our athletes undergo functional testing to determine any muscular or postural imbalances that might need to be addressed while working with us.

Functional assessments are provided at no charge for all current clients of The Grind!
