“The leadership of Christian is like no other!! And can’t forget to mention the encouragement of everyone around you working just as hard helps you execute your goal!!! Forge Strength Austin is where it’s at!! - Sierra H”

I love this gym! I’ve been with Christian for about a year and it has SCULPTED my whole body. His workouts are challenging, but he’s constantly motivating you to continue. The workouts are a combo of endurance and weight training: he is an advocate about good form, safety AND FUN! Going to a regular gym is way too boring for me, pricing is extremely reasonable considering the amount of attention you get with his classes. Christian also adapts the workouts depending on your fitness level, and pre existing injuries; he’s also super professional! Highly recommend.

I first started with Christian about maybe more than four years now. I used to just be a runner with no experience in strength training. I still remember the first session when I tried bench for the first time and I couldn't even lift the 35 pound bar. Now, instead of letting this bring me down, it actually motivated me to keep coming and keep getting better. Christian never made me feel like I wasn't capable and without him I don't think I would push myself to what I'm capable of doing now. When I've had doubt or even thought - "I cant do it" - Christian has showed me that it is possible - with determination and consistency. If you are finding a place that is more like a family that pushes each other to do the best they can - this is the place for you to achieve your goals - not alone but together as a whole. Five stars all around.

I did personal training with Christian for the three months right before my wedding. Christian was nothing short of awesome. He worked with me to understand my goals and developed a full diet and workout plan tailored to my needs. He provided the accountability and friendship I needed to succeed in reaching my goals, and had me looking my best for my big day!

My husband and I have personal training with Christian at Forge for almost a year. Having taking an extended time off from strength training, we were both nervous and excited about starting a new regimen. Christian did a fantastic job of re-introducing us to a lot of movements we had forgotten and continues to introduce us to new ones. He has helped us both push us beyond our comfort zones - and we both feel fitter and better than we have in years. We love his positive attitude, even on the hottest (or rainiest) days, and are excited to continue with Christian (and Forge).

Forge has everything I look for in a gym. Christian creates tough and thoughtful workouts that hit every muscle, and has the perfect combination of cardio and strength. The environment is always fun and he plays the best music. I always look forward to my workout!

“Forge is a great addition to the South Lamar fitness contingent, I would highly recommend it if you're looking for a killer workout that incorporates the big lifts (i.e. the only ones you truly need to build lean muscle), and also smokes you with some conditioning recipes. It's maybe a little like Crossfit, but less clique-ish and with MUCH more focus on injury prevention.- Alessandro D. ”
