WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER

This place is a hidden gem! I've been training here for over a year and I honestly could not recommend it enough. I train with Lisa, who is very knowledgeable and makes the workouts safe and fun, but I've gotten to know the other trainers as well and I would recommend any of them. I'm a plus size girl and the environment is very body positive and makes me feel safe and secure. We're all there just to get strong! If you're considering weightlifting or personal training of any kind, I couldn't recommend this place more.

Great atmosphere and trainers! I have been training with Steven 2-3x a week for about about 10 months now and have nothing but good things to report. Strength training paired with nutritional advice has helped me get stronger, lose weight and feel great. He tailors every workout to make it fun and keep it challenging. 10/10 would recommend! 🦾

All the trainers here are great and create a really welcoming atmosphere. From the trainers to the members, its a really supportive fitness community. This is my happy place!

Started going here shortly after a lower back injury and they helped me with strengthening the muscles around my back and improving my flexibility/mobility. I also lost 30 pounds and feel better/stronger after 20 weeks thanks to Steven’s nutritional/diet guidance. The gym is on the small side but it has everything you need. Everyone’s really nice, the pricing is really fair and they are very understanding when life things come up. Would recommend for anyone trying to get in shape or lose weight.

I have been training at Foundation Fitness for a few months now. All the trainers really care about creating a welcoming environment for everyone. My trainer Lisa has done a great job teaching me the proper way to lift while creating workouts tailored specifically to me as well as helping with proper nutrition and healthy eating. I have noticed a significant increase in my all around strength and fitness. Would recommend this gym to anyone looking for great personal trainers.

I've been training with Lisa over the last 4 months and it's been such a great experience! She's knowledgeable, fun, and motivating. I'm meeting my goals and learning so much thanks to her. Also, in general, the individualized experience that FF offers is perfect for me. It's helped keep me consistent and enjoy working out. I also appreciate the cleanliness and organization of the equipment. I highly recommend :))

We are so grateful to have Foundation Fitness! We were looking for a personalized gym experience for our 13 year old son. We our so happy to have found Steven and he is a positive role model for our son. He creates a driven atmosphere and motivating. He also takes the time to explain nutrition and all of the things to be successful at training. Steven makes it fun too! Highly recommend!

I’ve been training at foundation fitness for over a month and found it to be really motivating and exciting. The staff/trainers are always welcoming and very friendly, extremely helpful and encouraging.They train you well and proper with the correct tools and they always look after your safety, even when you aren’t aware. They guide towards nutrition, offer friendly tips and reminders prior to sessions and always train you whenever it’s convenient for you, which really does help with my fluctuating work schedule. I’d recommend this place to anyone who wants to set life changing goals, nothing more I can ask for, than a great gym and an awesome trainer (Lisa, train with her y’all, thank me later 😍) at a convenient investment worth my time and money 😊

Highly recommend this gym. I’ve been training with Lisa for almost six months now—Lisa is very encouraging and has helped me reach a significant milestone in my fitness journey. She does a great job helping me track my progress and explaining new workout movements with great detail and guidance. The other trainers Angelo, Jill, and Steven are also super friendly—it’s always a good time at Found Fit!

I have been going to Foundation Fitness for about 6 months now and joining was one of the best decisions I’ve made. I love working one-on-one with Lisa—she’s super knowledgeable, knows when to push you further or adjust when things don’t feel right, and brings so much positive energy to each session. The other trainers and clients are all really friendly and supportive as well—very much a community feel. Since joining I feel so much stronger and I am well to my way to reaching my fitness goals. This is my first time working with a trainer, but I highly recommend for anyone for looking for personalized guidance on their fitness journey.

if you're looking for personal training your search should stop right here. Great people that will never make you feel out of place, unwelcome or like you don't belong. They teach you how to embrace fitness as a life-long journey instead of just focusing on an end result. Can't beat it!

I love the welcoming atmosphere of this gym. My trainer Jill is absolutely amazing. She offers plenty of insight on both fitness and healthy eating. Before I started here, I was in so much pain every day due to previous knee surgeries and was having trouble doing typical tasks and working my job. Thanks to Jill, I am able to move better, have more balance and am in way less pain. I’m so thankful to all the support that I have found at this gym! I highly recommend!

I think you can go to just about any gym to work out. But if you want to go to a gym that will change your entire outlook on fitness and health, you should go to Foundation Fitness Annandale.I live with severe major depressive disorder, and since the dawn of time, everyone has been telling me that exercise will help. But I never knew what to do in the gym, so I didn't bother trying. However, when my depression became very dark about two years ago, I decided to try training. Three months, I told myself. I’ll give it three months.Then I met Angelo Demark at Foundation Fitness Annandale and two years have passed and I'm still here. Angelo profoundly changed my life. Yeah, I lost weight, I gained muscle, I feel physically “fitter,” but there are other benefits to working with trainers that I feel should be highlighted — like their impact on your mental health. Angelo pushed me on days when I could be pushed, he took workouts slow on difficult days, he made me laugh when I needed it (so, every day). He was supportive and compassionate and stable.I like to say that Angelo didn't help make me "feel good" about just my body — he helped make me, as a whole person, well.I’d also like to shout out Steven Bybee. He’s another fantastic trainer with a great personality — always made me laugh and feel welcome and wanted in the space, which was a feeling I didn’t know I needed until I had it. These guys are not stereotypical, intimidating “gym bros;” they are total and complete sweethearts.I’d also like to thank Patrick Bresley for accommodating me when I needed it. When he was signing me up, he told me that this gym is like a family, and I attempted to call his bluff at one point with something I considered to be an outlandish request. It was not a bluff. He and Angelo took care of me like family when I needed it most.Okay, that’s all. I know this is over-the-top for a Google review, but I’m moving soon and leaving the gym — which is harder for me than leaving some of my friends in this area (I hope they don't see this lol). Also, I really want a Foundation Fitness t-shirt before I go.Basically, go to this gym. It's worth it. You're worth it.

Foundation Fitness in Annandale is hands down the best gym I’ve participated in! It is not like your typical gym experience; it’s extremely personable and tailored for your particular goal. The trainers are all very committed, knowledgeable and encouraging! The gym also includes nutritional guidance to help improve your overall lifestyle and reach goals quicker. I’ve only been there one month so far and am already feeling stronger and healthier then ever.

I could not be happier with my experience at Foundation Fitness over the past 2 years. My current trainer, Angelo, challenges me, is tough on me when needed (typically related to wine), and also suggests ideas that are realistic given my nutty life! All of the trainers there are friendly and welcoming. The community feel is something I really value and I truly look forward to walking in the door every Tuesday and Thursday.

Foundation Fitness has been a great personal training experience the past 6 months. I have been focused on finding a combination of cardio, endurance, weight training, and nutrition to offset the challenges that come as a working mom and slowing metabolism. My trainer Mikayla finds a great balance between keeping me accountable, being flexible with my schedule, and crafting creative workouts that keep things interesting and aligned with my personal health goals. Both staff and other clients are friendly and supportive and it’s made working out shift from a necessary evil to an activity I look forward to. Best of all, I weigh less than when I got married, am stronger than well.. ever, and feel the improvement in stress and balance I was looking for in my life!!

This is the best gym experience that I have ever had. I was super nervous about working out with my knees because I have had so much pain when I run or go down stairs. I never thought I would be doing squats with weight and no pain! I have been on several runs since I started and finish without the usual knee pain. Soooo thankful!The workouts are challenging in a good way, and I go home feeling healthy and feeling good about what I accomplished.Also, Angelo, my trainer, and the rest of the staff are super knowledgeable and give great holistic advice about little things that can affect your workouts and body. He is always super positive and that makes the workouts fun.I recommend this place it is worth your time and money.

Great Trainer. I have been training here for 6 months and I am very happy with the trainers at FF Annandale. I like that it is very close to my house. The trainers are friendly and attentive. Mikayla made a nutrition plan and work out plan that are easy for me to learn and maintain. I am hitting all of my fitness goals here.

I just want to shout out to Mikayla Kercher, who has been working with me since March. She pushes me hard, flexes when I've had work or knee issues interfering, and has helped me see marked progress since I've gotten started. My experience with the Annandale location has been nothing but positive, and I'm lucky to have landed there!

I joined Foundation Fitness 8 months ago and I have never felt better. This has been my first experience working with a trainer and I found the best!!!Angelo has pushed me to do more than I thought I was capable of and he makes it fun. His knowledge about nutrition and fitness is impressive and I have learned so much. The environment at Foundation Fitness has been welcoming from day one and I have met some really great people. If you are interested in getting into great shape this is the only place to go!!!

I started with Foundation Fitness of Annandale about 2 months ago and it has changed my life. As a busy, young professional in the DC area finding time and a place to workout was super hard. Foundation Fitness and my trainer Steven make it so simple to come in and do what I need to do to better myself and see results. They are full service too, with weekly check- ins on nutrition and overall goals! So happy with my progress so far!!

I feel so lucky I found this place. I have always been intimidated by gyms and hated going. I have never been athletic but I knew I needed a change in my life and my health if I wanted to be happy. I am in my 20s and have some health issues. I had not been taking care of myself and it was impacting my health and quality of life. I drove past the location often and saw that they did free consultations and decided to give it a shot. BEST DECISION. I have been going twice a week for over a year. It's not like any other gym I had been to before. People know my name and I know theirs. It's small so I get one on one support from my trainer and support from others training. This was a great decision because not only do I have the physical results I wanted but I have more energy, I do more socially, and I am less tired at work. The gym is MY space now. It's not just about physical results, it's my place to unwind and relax and focus on me. I am so grateful I found this place. It's helped me find my strength again. Thank you FF!

I have been going to Foundation Fitness Annandale since mid Feb. 2019. It''s now mid April 2019, and I've lost 13 lbs so far. I feel healthier, lighter and stronger. The trainers are really good at what they do, and they do it in safest way possible. My trainer is Steven, and he is hands down one of the nicest people ever, but he definitely knows when to push, but he never overdoes it. I think that's an important line to be aware of, and he is a master at it. Also, everyone in the gym is extremely nice and welcoming. Even on my first day, I felt like I was part of the family already.If you want to be pushed in the right direction, this is where you want to be. I knew I wanted to get stronger, but I know nothing about weights, and FF Annandale has provided me with the right resources to ensure that I do it properly. On top of that, they also offer nutrition advice - which is honestly the most important part of this process. Just do it. Call them and ask for a quote. 🙂
