why us?

glad you asked!


We are the family that won't let you fail.

Working out can be intimidating if you're in the wrong environment. At Yeaman Athletics we have created a culture of inclusion, so no matter your age, weight or fitness level you can be sure that you will feel right at home with us!



Have you ever looked in the mirror and avoided looking at yourself? Are you ready to make a change for the better, put in the work and experience a true transformation? Want to do that along with other people in a fun and supportive community?

Fitness isn't just about picking heavy metal objects up and putting them back down. It's about functional strength and movements you use on a daily basis. By strengthening your core movements and muscles you will reduce your chance of injury, improve your performance at sports and feel better about yourself because you will look amazing!

Trying to workout on your own leads to failure for most people because as much as we don't want to admit it, if we don't have someone watching our back and holding us accountable, we'd rather sleep in than get up and go to the gym. With our class structure you will be held to the commitment of class, and with our super supporting and engaged community you won't be able to wait to come back.

We offer small and large group fitness classes
