Fire for Effect Athletics




who we are

At Fire for Effect Athletics, our top priority is functional fitness that applies to your daily life. This includes everything from strength and cardio, to flexibility and gymnastics.


Our facility is designed for everyone, regardless of physical ability or age. We program workouts that benefit people at any stage in life with kids as young as 7, to folks in their 70’s, as well as elite athletes.




This is a great gym, clean facility, great equipment, and a parking lot. The one thing they have that you cannot buy is awesome coaches that motivate, instruct, and push you to be the very best. When I first walked in to check out the new veteran owned business I had no intention on signing up. I still can’t tell you why I did it. I am 40, overweight, 4 kids, and zero time. But looking back it was the best decision of 2017. Can’t wait to go tomorrow.


Here I am running down the alley with an actual smile on my face. For those of you that know me you know I had until August to make some serious changes with my health. Today I had occasion to be at the doctors and he was excited at my weight loss and my blood pressure problem has turned into a non issue. It’s been four months of Crossfit and the changes in my health are remarkable at best. Thank you all for your encouragement and for putting up with me saying “I’m not doing that” ... because I “decided to do that” with the help of my coaches and all of you I’m succeeding

Feel in love with this place last year during Bonsai Brawl. Started dropping in every Thursday night for the Weekly Flight and just recently signed up to become a FFE member!! Hannah, James, Tracey and the rest of the crew of coaches are always welcoming. You will never feel out of place or feel like you don't belong. Everyone that walks into those doors for classes are excited to be there. The energy they have is amazing. It's not only a place to workout but a place you will call home and eventually become family. If your looking for a new home and people that will encourage you, look no further.
