Through our small group training sessions, team training programs, individual athletic performance training, and even our open gyms the trainers and coaches at RPG seek to provide athletes and clients with measurable and noticeable results!


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.


Rochester Performance Gym’s number one goal is to be considered the authority in strength and athletic conditioning (powerlifting, strongman, athletic performance, etc.) in Michigan.  RPG's aim is to provide premium instruction and coaching to all ages; middle school, high school, college, recreational, and professional athletes.  We strive to teach athletes and clients positive habits to prevent injury, increase mobility, correct movements, and to accelerate recovery.


RPG...Michigan's destination for all things strength & performance.
