"All I can say is Tate has helped me replace a lot of fat with a lot of lean muscle. I wouldn't have been able to do this on my own."

— Matt Shaffer

If you have a body, you're an athlete

We believe fitness is freedom


     When we make the choice to eat right and exercise, to cast off the chains of poor health, we challenge our bodies to do more, to be more.  



     We've seen 50 year old grandmothers with tears of pride in their eyes because they just climbed to the top of a 15’ rope, something they never dreamed they’d be able to do in their whole life.

     We’ve seen people who suffered from chronic back issues move freely without pain.

     We’ve seen people lose 100 pounds.

     We’ve seen people open their eyes to the endless possibilities that being healthy and physically capable have to offer.



     It starts with a choice, a burning reason to change your destiny.  How do I help my family to be happy and healthy and free?  How do I run a 5k or climb a mountain?  How do I avoid the horrors of decrepitude and degenerative disease? How do I stay out of the nursing home?



     Great North Fitness & Adventure is here to facilitate a healthy, capable life.


     Through our program of nutritional guidance, strength training, and conditioning, we help you move the needle of your fitness so you can live a full, active, and capable life.  Our programs produce general physical preparedness, well-rounded fitness that will give you the tools to overcome just about any physical challenge you will run into.
