I’ve had the privilege of being a part of the PRSF family for 7 years now and I can’t imagine my life without the coaches and members. PRSF isn’t just a gym – it’s a community of your biggest supporters. The coaches foster a sense of belonging from day 1 and everyone encourages you to be your best self both in and out of the gym. Every workout is challenging but also catered to each individual’s needs to ensure a safe environment. I can’t thank PRSF enough for everything they have done for me, and I can’t recommend them enough!!

Classes are always challenging but scalable and with enough variation that you never get bored.  I also do 1 on 1’s with Kerrie and working with her has been amazing. She’s helped me both work on weaknesses and with specific sport-related goals.  All in all, I can’t say enough good things about PRSF or the coaches and highly recommend them.

I would follow Kerrie, Steve across town (if necessary) to train with them. Whether it is on Zoom or in person, their energy and work ethic is infectious. At every workout, I know my body will be challenged safely and I’ll finish feeling better than when I started. They have helped me rehab several back injuries and come back stronger and more functional. I cannot thank them enough and feel so fortunate to have found them.
