What To Expect From Samson Barbell

First off, Samson Barbell was started because Jake (the owner) worked at a corporate gym and hated the way his clients were treated: like just a number. Out of that struggle Samson Barbell was founded. 💪

We firmly believe in treating everyone like family and taking care of our customers in any way possible. That is what you will notice about our gym vs. any other. 

We are veteran owned and family friendly. You'll see Jennie (Jake's wife and co-pilot) running around talking to people. Kids are welcome too!👨‍👩‍👧‍👦

Our Coaches, Mark and Kimberly are exceptional coaches with tons of experience and credentials. They put their heart and soul into your success. 

Everything is well thought out with training and nutrition. 

The coaches will keep you guessing whats next in the workouts and hold you accountable with your nutrition.

When doing personal training you will be able to reach your coach 24/7 to ask any questions that you may have and they will be checking in with you even when you aren't at the gym. 

When it comes to our style of nutrition we believe in a balanced nutrition plan. We are against "fad" diets and are thinking about longevity when we coach you.

Our goal is not only to help you attain what you have set out for but to give you the knowledge and habits to keep going even after you continue beyond our training.

After your workout here you can kick back and hang out. We encourage you to make friends and partner up with others for added success.

We firmly believe that you will fall in love with this place and it will feel like a second home.🏠


Samson Barbell has great trainers and great atmosphere. The workouts are great and really make you break a sweat. The group classes are small but its great because it makes it easy to keep up with the workouts. And if you're a beginner they are great at modifying it so you don't overdue in the beginning. The trainers are really good at explaining and showing us the workout routine before you start. And what I really loved is they motivate you through the whole time. I loved my experience here.

Super grateful I found this gym! Great place to train! Jake and the rest of the trainers are awesome w/ answering questions, giving pointers, and helping with anything you need while at the gym. Its open 24 hours so you have access any time day/night. It has everything you need or want to lift heavy!!

By far one of the best gyms I’ve been to. Samson Barbell has a very welcoming feel, everyone helping each other, encouraging one another. I like how the coach switches up the workouts and doesn’t feel like you’re doing the same thing every day whether you’re in the group class or one on one.
