Not only did I gain physical strength I didn’t think was possible, this style of strength training had a carry over effect into the rest of my life. I realized that I was capable of things I didn’t think I could accomplish. I felt a sense of empowerment through each strength challenge that I overcame, and still do to this day This style of training has given me mental and physical strength for life. So, as my husband shared this with me, I want to share it with you!”

I can't say enough about how impressed I am with the staff at Rock Solid Fitness. You are not only getting an incredible workout designed to get the absolute maximum results in a fraction of the time as any of their competitors, but also a continued education on fitness and diet that is designed for the individual based on your desired results.Can't sing their praises loud enough!

I started using Rock Solid a couple months ago, and I cannot appreciate the efficiency of the workouts enough. As a business owner time is against me and to get a workout in during the week within a 30 min tome slot that leaves me exhausted is amazing! Worth every penny and minute invested. You can’t beat the quality of the trainers! Thank you!

I had my first workout there yesterday and all I can say is...WOW! ? I can definitely tell you it's a WHOLE body workout. My concerns going in to this is that it wasn't for me, a 37 year old who is use to going to a gym of dudes lifting hundreds of pounds. BOY WAS I WRONG...The workout that Drew provided was a mix of upper, lower and core workout that challenged me the whole time! I highly recommend Rock Solid Fitness to anyone who is ready to get A REAL WORKOUT! ??BRAVO ??

've had only 2 workouts so far at Rock Solid and I LOVE IT! I have done every type of workout .. literally everything. I have done hours at the gym, HIT for 20 minutes, you name it. I've done it. I've great results in the past but it was a serious commitment to the gym. Rock Solid is a 30 minute workout - which I was skeptical of 1st. I've tried 30 minute workouts and training and I never saw results. How can it be possible I ask myself? The workouts at Rock Solid are different from anything I have done. The trainers are motivating AND best of all - I don't mentally talk myself out of going because it's 30 MINUTES - my brain can deal with that. I am excited to go again and to post another review after I get a few months under my belt. If you want to see results and are dedicated to eating right as well - you have to stop by for a free workout!! ??

Just completed my introductory session at Rock Solid Fitness and I am blown away at how different strength training can be when it is done with a company with a background in PT. Although safety is a great reason to do so, my legs and arms feel like rubber in half the time I used to spend in a gym. Can't wait to see what the results will be in 6 months! Oh yeah, and they do a complete body analysis at the beginning so no need to weigh using scales anymore or wonder what your body fat % vs muscle mass is and where it's located- they've got that all covered and on record, so the only person I'm competing with is myself and I train hard.

Rock Solid Fitness Florida will get you fast results with only 2 brief (but intense) workouts per week. We offer supervised High Intensity Personal Fitness Training. We are passionate about strength training and believe it is one of the most important things people can do for their health.

What if I have a medical condition or past injury?2018-05-22T23:01:39+00:00

Due to our physical therapy perspective, we are able to create an effective program for most people with medical conditions or a history of injuries. Clients do need to be mobile enough to get around the facility and on and off the equipment.

Can I buy a membership and work out on my own?2018-05-22T23:02:31+00:00

We believe that supervision is critically important to insure the safest and most effective workouts possible. All workouts are by appointment only with one of our expert Fitness Coaches.

What is the In Body 570?2018-05-22T23:03:08+00:00

The InBody 570 is a non-invasive scanning device that provides accurate body composition analysis in less than 45 seconds, providing information about visceral fat, segmental fat, intracellular water, and extracellular water. This information helps us design individualized workouts, set meaningful goals and track client’s progress.

How do you measure my progress?2018-05-22T23:04:24+00:00

Everything we do is data driven. We measure progress by increases in weight used or repetitions performed on your workout card; improvements seen in your Inbody 570 results; and improvements in function and quality of life, as reported by you. We keep meticulous records and make ongoing adjustments to ensure satisfying results.

What kind of services do you provide?2018-05-23T15:17:14+00:00

We offer individually supervised High Intensity strength training workouts; Inbody 570 body composition scanning; Nutrition education using our proprietary Medicorp MAPS software program; and free monthly education seminars open to the public. We stick to what we know best, and what we know works.

How do I schedule my appointments?2018-05-22T23:06:13+00:00

Clients can conveniently schedule their own appointments online, or they can call or email us and we will schedule them.

How much does it cost?2018-06-05T13:09:36+00:00

We offer a very exclusive fitness coaching and consulting service, providing the highest level of fitness coaching and consulting services. We have 2 different pricing tiers based on the level of service you desire. Training package prices start at $388 per month.

What age groups do you work with?2018-05-22T23:08:05+00:00

All of our workouts are individualized, and our training principles apply universally to everyone, so we can work with all ages. Over the years we have had clients from 9 years old to well into their 90’s. Clients under 18 require parent or guardian’s consent.

Do I have to work around my coaches’ schedule?2018-05-22T23:17:06+00:00

At Rock Solid Fitness you don’t have just one Fitness Coach; you have a team of Coaches at your disposal. Our unique scheduling model allows you to come in and train when it’s convenient for you, not us. You are free to schedule an appointment at any time during our working hours that we are open, and the Fitness Coach assigned to supervise your workout at that time will provide you with a 5 Star, Rock Solid experience.

Is it really possible to see results in 2 weekly 30 minute workouts?2018-05-22T23:18:25+00:00

With our system, you will see immediate, dramatic and continuous progress, right from your first workout. Our workouts provide maximum muscular stimulation, while also maximizing recovery, giving you the best possible results with minimum time spent working out.
