My wife and I come to empower every time we visit Durham. Blaine is the best trainer around and the rest of the team is amazing and extremely friendly. I’d highly recommend going

I chose this place on a whim and I am so glad I did. All the trainers in the gym were so sweet and encouraging, making sure they took the time to get to know you regardless of if you were their client. Cierra Dunston--my personal trainer--was perfect! She knew exactly how to build functional fitness while also helping you attain your personal goals. I was able to overcome a lot of my fears about heavy weights and push myself more than I ever thought I could. I highly recommend her as your personal trainer and this gym as your gym of choice!

Being a lifetime fitness lover and having just moved back to Durham, Empower Fitness has exceeded my expectations for a wonderful facility, clean and well taken care of equipment, to my Trainer, *Patty Shoaf* who somehow makes the saying “no pain no gain” into much looked forward to workouts of the week!! All of the staff is wonderful and encouraging! Highly recommend and can’t say enough great things!!

Telese has been working remotely with me for a few months and it’s been a great experience. She’s taken the time to get to know me and has created a very challenging, rigorous and beneficial workout program. She keeps an ear on my work schedule and my family, my eating habits and my ailments and is always supportive, encouraging and good counsel. I really enjoy our time together even though I can barely breathe when we’re done!

I’ve been a multi-year participant at Empower. Had several great years working with my buddy Nestor. When Nestor opted to move on I wondered about what was next. Jess took the time to understand my goals, needs, and (now at my age, something new) limitations. She paired me up with Marques. He’s been great! The transition was seamless. He’s prepared, creative, no-nonsense. A great addition to the team! I enthusiastically endorse him. This all serves to remind me of the 100% professional approach Empower takes to this business. And we get to benefit from it. It also reminds us of the challenge of change but, more importantly, the benefit of that change.

This place is life changing! I work long hours on my feet and I was starting to have back pain all the time. Since working out at Empower I have learned so much about how to use my body properly. Back pain is gone, feeling strong and yes definitely empowered! I work out with Brooke and she's been wonderful and so supportive. I highly recommend giving Empower a try!

I cannot recommend EMPOWER Personalized Fitness enough. All the trainers are fantastic and the facility is top notch. I have been training with Brooke for about two months and she has been able to help me gain strength as I recover from a tennis injury. So glad I am now with EMPOWER!!

Love this place, great equipment, trainers, and atmosphere. I have gotten so much stronger in my time at empower. I have been going to empower constantly for around a year now and it never gets old the feeling of walking out after a great workout.
