Owners, Amanda Betron and Steve Stuecher, share a passion for seeing others improve through smart, yet intense strength training & conditioning. Steve says, "We are ecstatic to share our lifelong passion and expertise with members and young athletes alike in our brand new, custom outfitted facility. I always look back on my college basketball career and wonder what if I had the proper strength training guidance, and even more, what if I could recover more effectively from the physical toll of practice and games? Let RPG improve your performance to eliminate those "what ifs." We look forward to working with you.
