Testimonials from our Members

eric eskridge

"I’ve only ever really workout at commercial gyms.  For me this is the best gym I’ve been to. Especially as a inspiring powerlifter, they have everything I need and more. I love that they have more than two benches and three deadlift platforms. It’s 24/7 and the gym is always clean, plus you can beat their price as a gym. "

Angela Cline

"I absolutely love this place. It is clean and had everything you need at a reasonable price. You also can't beat the 24 hour access!"

taylor conner

"Family owned gym with Top of the line equipment, owners of the facility are the nicest and open people heart people that are down to earth! 24/7 is a big perk, but the best part is the low monthly membership with no fee!"

Seth S

"If you’re tired of overpriced, crowded gyms come check out Welcome to the Pit! Suitable for any level of experience, with a focus on powerlifting and strength training. Quality equipment, clean gym, and friendly owners. Best gym around. "

Matthew Silcox

"I can't speak highly enough about this gym. If you are serious about your training, there is no other gym in the area that you should consider. Toby and his wife are some of the kindest, welcoming, and knowledgeable people I have ever met. I am constantly asking questions and throwing out ideas and they always respond with a smile and helpful feedback. The equipment is top-shelf whether you're a serious powerlifter, olympic weightlifter, crossfitter, bodybuilder, or average fitness enthusiast. Add 24/7 access and unbelievable membership fees and you have a unicorn of a gym. You're remiss if you live in Akron and don't come check this place out. "

Sushburg R

"WTTP is the place to be not only if you are serious about your programming and lifting, but also if you are a novice and want a relaxed atmosphere with quite a variety of equipment. I have trained at WTTP since January 2018.  From the moment I stepped in for a welcoming tour, I was convinced that this facility could help me be me and assist me to focus on the goals I have set for myself.  For the powerlifter, there are varieties of bars for each lift. For the bodybuilder, there are many styles of weight plates and pairs of dumbells up to 150 lbs. For the Olympic lifters there are Oly plates, matts, platforms and boxes for pulls. For those who want to get on a bike, a treadmill or elliptical, you are accommodated.  A few added attractions that I sometimes use are the Prowler and the Yoke carry . Many people use the battle ropes and sandbags. For 24/7 access and very reasonable rates, you can't lose for checking out Welcome to the Pit."
