Because DuBose Fitness Center only offers one-on-one personal fitness training, our clients avoid the annoyances that come with memberships at large chain gyms, such as overcrowding and lack of parking. You’ll never have to wait for a turn on the weight machines here, and there will be no loud music or staring strangers to distract you from performing your workouts! Our private, camera-monitored facility is filled with top-notch equipment designed by fitness experts for maximum results. Combined with personalized instruction and encouragement from Joel DuBose, our gym is a safe, effective, and comfortable environment for reaching your fitness goals!
