Each new coaching client begins their training with the one 1-Month Coaching Trial Period.

100% of our clients see results in strength and the way they look in the first month. They all notice their muscles change: more muscle and less fat. They have more energy and are more motivated during the day. You'll learn principles to help you train smart and hard, so you get the results you want. 

We can't make numbers lie. On day one, you lift and every day until the final session, you add weight to your lifts. This works for everyone - no matter your current fitness level.


Everyone comes to GZS initially with a varied and broad assortment of needs and goals.

Some need to lose weight. Some need to gain weight. Many clients have a host of health issues they are trying to resolve.   Some are active in sports or competition that are physically demanding.  Almost all are unhappy with the way that they currently look and feel and strength is limiting them in some way. 

At the heart of all of these issues is a lack of basic strength and muscle mass, and an unfamiliarity with how to strength train correctly. As we age, our body begins to rapidly lose strength and shed muscle mass. If you don’t address this issue it can have severe consequences later in life.

A training program that is primarily focused on building strength and muscle is the first step towards achieving your individual goals. It is the foundation that almost everyone lacks, and is the place where we start our clients.

More strength and muscle will improve your appearance and speed up your metabolism. More strength and muscle will improve your resistance to disease such as osteoporosis and type 2 diabetes.  More strength will improve your performance in sport and in life.

A stronger body will give you more energy, more vigor and vitality, and more confidence to pursue the things in life you love.

You are an individual with a unique set of needs and goals. We treat you as such.

Training is conducted in a 1-on-1 or small-group training session with your coach.

We teach a progression that allows for steady strength gains, meeting you where you are at physically using safe and effective free weight exercises. 


Your form and technique is constantly monitored and evaluated to ensure safety and effectiveness at all times.

Every client is placed on an individualized program based on their needs, goals, abilities, and level of experience.

Workout by workout we will progress you through your training program (and at times push you) at a pace appropriate for you. We will make sure you are making consistent and steady progress week by week, month by month, year by year.

Andrea W. 

"I needed to get back into working out after a long layoff so I signed up for the intro month of coaching with Sam. I was dealing with some hip pain that was limiting me, and since getting stronger that hasn't bothered me. Needless to say, I am hooked and wish I would have started months ago.

Deadlift: 95lbs - 205lbs 

Bench: 55lbs - 90lbs

Press: 35lbs - 75lbs

Kirby G.

Kirby is one of the founding members of GZS who has seen incredible progress.


"I signed up for coaching after a knee surgery. I was tired of aches and pains limiting his work and family life. After training for 5 months, I've squatted 325lbs, Benched 235lbs, and deadlifted 385lbs after learning correct technique and lifting progression from Sam. This has helped me look and feel better overall and I can't recommend it enough." 


Connie Jo, 62 

Connie joined Ground Zero Strength 6 months ago and has been working with Head Coach Sam twice a week.

She decided to look into strength training because she didn't want strength to limit her during her summer backcountry horseback and fly-fishing trips. She also wanted to get stronger, so everyday life - where she farms and spends time woodworking - is easier on her as she ages.


Since training, she has reduced chronic pain in her knees and hips, built strength and flexibility in her joints, and has lifted weights she never though imaginable. Everyday activities she enjoys like working, swimming, and running have been more enjoyable. She intends to keep strength training as a part of her routine for the foreseeable future.

Danielle Taylor, 32

Danielle decided to give strength training at Ground Zero Strength a try after not having much success in the group training and circuit training vortex. She works a stressful job, and is a U.S. Navy Reservist and was finding her motivation to stay fit for her jobs dwindling.


She started in November of 2021 working with Head Coach Sam, and quickly found enjoyment in the simple and systematic barbell training methods. She signed up for her first powerlifting meet in March, and set multiple Veteran/First Responder Class women's state records.


She's developed confidence in her physical ability and built muscle along the way. She looks forward to rocking her yearly Navy Physical Readiness Test.

One Month STrength Challenge Trial Application

The one-month coaching trial is $35/session (for three session/week) or $45/session (for two sessions/week), billed monthly.


The purpose of the trial is to learn the lifts and see the immediate effects of strength training. Our most successful clients make a longer term commitment to coaching at the end of the trial or become member of the gym. 


You will be contacted after your application is reviewed to schedule a $50 introductory session to the basics of strength training, do a workout, and see if it’s a good fit.

It is possible that there are no membership slots available.


If this is the case and you submit the trial application, you will still be contacted to learn how to get stronger and how to achieve your goals. You’ll also be added to a waiting list - the earlier you are added to the list, the higher priority you get for a newly opened slot.


Fill out the info below and we will be in touch to schedule a Free 15-Minute Strategy Call with you as soon as possible. 

Jamie Jolly, 40

Jamie recently lost 200lbs after gastric bypass surgery. She had been trying to lift weights to build some muscle and get stronger but hadn't had much success and didn't know where to start. She found that despite losing weight, she didn't feel strong and confident in her body. She needed something simple, straight forward, and effective and found the training at Ground Zero. 


She joined our Strength Challenge in April, and has trained for almost 4 months. Since starting, she's been noticing muscles "she didn't know she had" and has seen a reduction in the loose skin from her weight loss just from building muscle. This has boosted her confidence in many aspects of her life. 

She has signed up for her first powerlifting meet in November, and plans on making strength training a part of her life as long as possible.
