Warriors Playground is the best gym in the Durham/Raleigh area. Barrett is a great trainer who creates new routines to keep you entertained and get you out of boring gym habits. Not only that, the community is supportive and great!

I've been coming to Warrior's Playground multiple days out of the week for almost a month now and might I say that I have not gotten bored yet! I really like that each class has a different combo of exercises every day, which allows my body to maximize muscle growth. The high intensity interval workouts have really given me a fun way to get my cardio in, which is usually something I dread. Barrett has really been an amazing trainer, in that he really helps me to maximize results with his constant encouragement, always challenging me to do better and give the exercises my all. In the short time that I have been coming here, I've already seen a huge improvement in my stamina, strength, and my ability to sweat (didn't know I had it in me to produce so much, but leave it to Barrett to find a way). I've been approaching my fitness goals quicker than I expected. I think I have found a new gym home! I would highly recommend the Warrior's Playground to anyone looking for a challenge who doesn't like being bored and wants to be motivated by Barrett to do your best in order to reach your goals and get fit!

I give Warriors Playground five stars(*****). Barrett is dedicated to providing variety in each workout and is also committed to ensuring that you receive a full body workout. I enjoy all the workouts, but the cardio and strength combo workouts are my favorite. If you commit to the workout routine, you will definitely see improvement in your overall fitness and strength. Warriors Playground is the best kept secret in the RTP area.

I've been an active member of this gym since May 2019, and it's been the best decision i've made in awhile. It's a group setting that offers Cardio, Strength, and boxing classes. It's tough, but you get the results you pay for. The owner is great without being overly pushy and the members are great. i highly encourage anyone looking for a gym to check our Warriors Playground.

This place is amazing! Each and every workout is unique and keeps you engaged the entire time. Barrett puts in time and energy into planning each class to be fun and challenging and will happily accommodate different skills levels. The community is wonderful and will even do canoeing together for a workout! I highly recommend this place for an energetic, unique, and challenging workout.

Put in the time and see the difference! Barrett is a great trainer will make sure that you get all you can out of your experience, your workout, and yourself. He keeps it challenging yet interesting and leaves you hurting (in a good way) yet coming back for more. I can’t say enough good things about this gym. It’s clean, it’s inviting, it has a great staff and delivers great results. Try it and see for yourself.

As a cardio-junkie and marathon runner, I HATE strength training. It’s not for me, despite it being a really important component of cross training and staying healthy and injury-free. I found Warrior’s Playground in August, and started with their cardio strength classes because they essentially tricked me into enjoying strength training. I’ve since moved on to incorporating the pure strength-focused classes into my routine. This is to say, I’ve grown to LOVE this place and how strong it’s made me. I really believe that because of the functional strength exercises that are used in the classes, I’ve been able to race my best without injury. I’d recommend this place HIGHLY to anyone looking to get stronger, but also to the runners and triathletes out there who view strength training as a chore. Take the leap, try some classes, and have fun actually strength training!!

Before I started at Warriors Playground I was a poor, ugly and out of shape nerd. After a few months I was transformed into a handsome IT thousandaire, who could beat the snot out of my former self. All jokes aside, this place is great. For me, it felt like I had a personal trainer. I had just moved to the area, and was living in an apartment nearby with my wife and kids while house hunting. Our new home is too far into Raleigh, so I sadly had to cancel in search of a closer gym. Thank you Barrett and Kevin (and all the folks I met who worked out there). Great atmosphere, great workouts!

If you want an easy workout, this is not the place to be. If you want a workout that will reacquaint you with what your body is capable of, Warriors Playground is THE place to go. The exercises are innovative, efficient, and effective. Each 1 hour circuit workout involves several stations with 1.5 minutes on, 15 seconds off. Everything is ready to go when you walk in the door, and you're in and out of there in an hour with ZERO time wasted feeling like you had the best workout of your life. One of the things I appreciated most was the level of attention from the trainer during the workout. Trainer strikes a perfect balance of being encouraging, keeping everyone accountable during the workout, and observing everyone's individual safe limits. Really, really fantastic gym. Some of the best workouts I've ever had.

Warriors Playground is one of the Triangle's best kept secrets. Extremely convenient location and time options. Barrett offers creative, fun workouts that challenge your fullest potential. Full body exercise routines change all the time and targets different muscle groups. Safe, controlled training environment where you are constantly pushed to your limits. Whether your goal is to lose weight, gain muscle mass, improve endurance/speed, Warriors Playground can help you reach ALL of your fitness needs. By far, one of the best places I have trained at.

If you’re interested in getting fit, but unsure about going to a gym to figure out an appropriate workout, Warrior’s Playground is the place to be. Barrett has set up workout routines to fit a variety of fitness levels, but always keeps it challenging. I’ve been attending classes with the Warrior’s Playground for over 3 years and it has kept me moving forward with my fitness goals. It’s always a positive and fun atmosphere. I look forward to seeing and working out with the many clients who attend throughout the week and the only one you’re competing against, is yourself.

This is a great gym to go to if you're looking for a non traditional approach to fitness. I started going to Warriors Playground about 2 months ago and I've never finished a workout not feeling like I wasn't pushed. The workouts are very challenging but suitable for people of all fitness levels. The owner Barrett is great and is welcoming of all gym goers.
