DON'T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT!

I don't think you will find a trainer who is more invested in you and your long term health than Obi. He bases his workouts on research proven methodologies, not on fads or what is going to be easy to sell. My drive to be the healthiest and fittest I can be as a 57 year old woman is powered by what I have learned from Obi and through Obi. He probably knows more about every members' ability than we do ourselves. I can honestly say, if you don't check out this gym, you are doing yourself and your family a huge disservice. You are not allowing yourself the full life (now and later) that Obi's fitness plan gives you. Beyond Obi, you will find a gym filled with amazing men and women, who cheer you on, inspire you, make you laugh, and who push you when you just want to stop. I love this place more than I can ever express.
Being a member of partners gym has been my most treasured role over the past 6 years. So much so that my husband and I bought our forever home based off of a 20 min radius from Partners Gym (that was my number one requirement.) People always say their gym is “life changing” or the “best decision” of their life. I would say the same about Partners Gym. Except, I would add this gym altered my philosophy about life and overall made be a better person (just like his slogan says.) I now look at fitness with the approach of what’s going to make me live longer, what work makes me feel invincible, what’s going to help me be a caretaker of my family and what’s going to keep my bones/ muscles strong and healthy. The results/ motivation are about way more than just physical appearance. It’s not about what you want from a gym but more about what you need for a healthy life. And the longer you subscribe to Obi’s way of fitness, what you need becomes what you want. Obi reads the same journals that my attending physicians and I discuss at our weekly general meetings and he curates workouts to incorporate concepts of fitness to counter the pathophysiology of chronic disease. People invest so much time and money for their retirement with 401ks, promotions and late nights at work. But the real investment we should be focused on, is the time we spend making our bodies strong, agile and fast. That investment is what really makes the golden years “golden.” So please come join me at Partners gym and just decide to live better. Do it for yourself. It’s as simple as that. Ps there’s some really cool people in this gym family. And we’d all love to meet you!
I trained with Obi 6 days a week for 10 months. When I first joined I was completely out of shape. Obi changed my life and I owe everything to him. Obi is one of the most down to earth, intelligent, thoughtful, passionate, and truly good people I have ever met. Obi believes in fitness for longevity and he programs his workouts with serious thought to make sure he balances strength and conditioning needs while challenging you mentally to push yourself. He makes you want to learn how to be fit so that if he wasn’t there for you, you could figure out what to do on your own. His gym has no ego. After 10 months I am now in the best shape of my life but more than that, because of Obi’s training and the love he instilled in me for fitness, I am confident I will keep off the weight and be in great shape for the rest of my life. I will never leave The Partners Gym as long as Obi runs it. Any health or fitness advice Obi gives is backed by immense research and deep thought. I’m deeply grateful for everything Obi has taught me, and I encourage any current or new members to trust his process.
Great gym and awesome environment. The owner Obi is the heart and soul of this facility and it runs beautifully. Take a class and sweat with purpose.
So the huge sign outside says "Open Gym", but apparently it is not. Then only run classes which is a Shane because every time I go by the place is empty

Partners Gym is by far the best gym I've ever been to. Obi and the other trainers are amazing. I could never imagine going back to a traditional gym after experiencing a workout at Partners. The trainers put incredible workouts together and do an excellent job of coaching you through them, whether it be correcting your form or just motivating you to push yourself harder. Also, they make the best smoothies you will ever have! The quality of the ingredients they use are unmatched. For example, Obi makes his own hazelnut spread because he feels Nutella has too much sugar. Who else thinks of things like that? Nobody. Just Obi!
The Partners Gym has truly changed my life. Previously, I was a member at one of those chain gyms and would workout sporadically or not at all. However, The Partners Gym came along and changed the game. The gym is super clean, spacious, and the owner, Obi has a passion for what he does. He is positive, energetic and a pleasure to be around. He also teaches some of the best classes the gym has to offer. Class sizes are small and can still give you the workout you're looking for. Check out the smoothie bar too! Obi makes homemade nut butters and stays away from all the junk that's out there. This is all to say that I now go to the gym about 4-5 times a week. This gym is worth every penney and I don't regret making the investment in myself! Bravo to the Partners Gym!!
