Getting Started

What is Chattahoochee Strength and Fitness?

We are structured around small group and one-one-one personal training. All of our group sessions are led by a member of our coaching team. We focus on progressive strength and conditioning, and encourage our members to attend sessions 3 – 5 days a week. If you come consistently you can expect to improve your strength, balance, coordination, power, mobility, and endurance.

We believe that what your body can DO is much more important than what your body weighs, and so we do not put a front-and-center focus on fat-loss. Our strength & conditioning sessions absolutely promote gains in lean muscle, increased bone density, and reduction in fat mass when paired with healthy eating habits. We are not dieticians but can provide general nutrition guidance. If for any reason your nutrition needs are more specific we will refer you to a qualified clinical practitioner, such as a Registered Dietician.

We measure success by looking for improvement in the fitness categories outlined above. Changes in body composition, the way your clothes fit, and weight loss are bonus side effects of this improvement.

Being better than you were yesterday is the goal: stronger, better conditioned, and more mobile. Here you will never be judged by how you look, how you eat, how much you weigh, or what you do in your spare time. The only thing that matters is that you show up consistently and give your best effort.

Our trainers are instructors, not cheerleaders. We perform functional training at the proper daily dose. We don’t believe that you should perform every training session to complete exhaustion. The proper dose of movement every day works much better for recovery and gains over a long course of time. Each training session is part of a program and follows a set of principles. Good form is our priority, we move well and move often.

How Do I Get Started

Contact Head Coach Steven Lewter at to set up a consultation on past exercise experience, goals, and limitations such as previous injuries or medical conditions.

There are two paths to get started with our group sessions: our Foundations Skill Series or our Jump Start program:

  • The Foundations series consists of between 1 and 5 one-on-one personal training sessions with Coach Steven or Coach Hugh. These sessions cover the principles of strength training – pairing breath and movement to stabilize a neutral spine. We apply that skill to 6 foundational functional strength movements to the CSF standards. After Foundations you can get started with your membership to attend group sessions. This course drastically reduces chances of injury, increases confidence and increases speed of results. Each foundations class is $65 for the one hour session.
  • Jump Start: Join our group sessions immediately and learn skills as you go. This option lets you hit the ground running. It takes longer to master the skills that you will need in our sessions and is not recommended for anyone without any prior resistance training experience.


The full price gym membership is $175 per month per person for unlimited classes and $150 per month per person for 12 sessions a month. We have 15% discount options for people who complete our Foundations course, Police, Firefighters, Militarily, Teachers, Public Service Professionals and some approved corporate discounts. We also have partner and family pricing discounts. We do not have contracts, membership is month-to-month.
