Bruce, Rebecca and the crew will whip you into shape; not only with some intense workouts, but with nutrition management as well. Seeing results. Changing my habits and my lifestyle. All because of VSF. Thanks yall!
Thank you Victory Strength and Fitness. I am 68 years old and I began my journey at VSF 1 year ago. I have more strength, flexibility and energy than I did 20 years ago. Thanks to Bruce, Austin and Rebecca for taking me where I was and helping me get to where I didn’t think I could go. 🏋️😊
I love VSF! The Coaches have been amazing and everyone has been so welcoming. It has only been 4 months since I joined VSF, and I feel great! I have more energy to do things with my kids. I can't wait to see what the next 4 months looks like
I’m so happy that I started the program with Victory Strength and Fitness. I love the small group training, but also that each person is working on a plan tailored to their goals and needs. The coaches do a great job of pushing & motivating, but also making sure you’re being safe. Highly recommend!
I first sought out VSF in January 2022. My goal was to get leaner and stronger, while avoiding injury. I started with private coaching with Rebecca to learn proper form and gain confidence to tackle group classes. In no time I was fitting into group classes smoothly. The group classes are small enough the coaches still can watch over each student and adjust form or provide guidance as needed. VSF provides a nice, strategic approach to increase weight sensibly and effectively. The coaches challenge you and encourage you each class. I am amazed at the weights I am lifting now compared to where I started just 5 months ago. My increased confidence and stronger frame have been noticed by friends and family even outside of the gym. I am excited to continue this journey with VSF.
As someone with former body dysmorphia and an eating disorder, I've never had a healthy relationship with food and working out. I've never been one who liked to workout and I've done every yoyo diet out there. I joined VSF in late November of 2021 doing the 12 week program. I committed to the process and lost almost 20 lbs and lost almost 18 inches all around my body. More importantly than what I lost, I gained so much more. I gained confidence, strength, flexibility, determination, and a much healthier self image and relationship with food. The trainers took the time to teach me proper nutrition while holding me accountable and giving me feedback. They make working out enjoyable and fun and I never thought I'd ever say that! 6 months before I started I literally sprained my ankle just walking down the sidewalk! 🤣 I'm able to do things that I've never been able to do before. They've changed my mindset and outlook on life! Since I loved my results and mindset I've continued my work with them. When I had a shoulder injury the trainers work to modify my workouts so I could still workout but protected me from getting hurt. They make things fun but still push me to work harder each day. I can't say enough good things about them. The best investment you can make is on yourself, so if you're on the fence, give them a call and try it out! you won't regret it.
I can't say enough good things about VSF!! I am the type of person who needs a personal trainer, yet prefers to be in a class setting. VSF is the Perfect mix of both!! The coaches are great, and I've learned so much about technique and how to lift safely (which is vital beings that I knew nothing). I'm on my second 12 weeks and plan to continue, because this is the only thing that I've done that has actually worked for me! HIGHLY recommend⭐️
I absolutely love VSF! I’ve been a member of multiple different gyms/classes and never got any sort of real results. VSF has taught me more in 6 weeks than I could have ever imagined. Learning not only how lift weights correctly but also about nutrition! I haven’t felt this good and motivated in a long time! I’ve never felt judged and everyone is so helpful! Being active and healthy doesn’t have to be hard! The stories and results are very real!
I knew I needed a very structured program to get back into working out after COVID closures. I wanted to feel stronger. I can't believe that I don't have back pains anymore. I have impressed myself with the weights I can lift. I highly recommend the 12 week program to see your true potential and have guidance along the way.
VSF is great for all levels- beginners to someone that has been working out for years. I have accomplished quite a bit since joining in Nov, 2021. I have gained confidence and muscle, while losing inches and weight. I have been working out in different formats for 10+ yrs and have never been able to do a pull-up, and with the training at VSF- I accomplished this goal! VSF coaches are very encouraging and helpful! This program is the real deal!
I have to start by saying that I absolutely love Bruce and his team at Victory Strength and Fitness!! I did his program years ago and felt awesome. When I was wanting to get a jumpstart on my fitness and nutrition again, I immediately knew I wanted to come back here!! The number one priority is always safety which is a huge deal for me since I’ve had back surgery in the past. The workouts are tough and will push you to challenge yourself in the best way possible. The trainers are positive, encouraging, helpful, and they really work hard to help us see what we’re capable of and to motivate us! I’ve never once felt judged or belittled due to my level of fitness. I’ve only always felt encouraged. They’re right there with you pushing you along the way. This time around, I’ve really made sure to put in the work with the work outs AND nutrition and my results have been awesome!! Leaner, stronger, more confident, more energy!! So many wins that cannot even be measured. If I had to pick one favorite thing, it would be all of the mental and physical endurance I’ve gained from this experience!! So grateful for the whole team at VSF!! If you’re thinking about joining, you won’t regret it!!
Love, love this place! Not only do you work out and lift weights, you also get a nutrition plan to keep you on track. I never would have thought that I could lift the weight that I do now and I don’t lose my breath walking up/down stairs anymore! This is my second time doing the program. It’s a lot of fun and I’ve lost inches! It’s a LIFESTYLE. You will feel so much better after you do it. 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼
Excellent coaching with great modifications for those working through injuries! VSF is a great friendly environment to learn proper lifting form and help you reach your health goals!
I first joined VSF in January 2021 and did the 12 week program. In those 12 weeks, I dropped 3 pant sizes, over 10 inches, and 15 pounds! Unbelievable? No, it isn't! You can have these same results, too! All you have to do is take that first step toward living the healthy lifestyle you were intended to live! The program is so efficient, I decided after falling in reverse on my own to sign back up, this time for 6 months! The commitment is easy to make when you know it works!
Love this place. Everyone is friendly and helpful. Never feel judged or ashamed! They push me to achieve my goals in a way that doesn’t seem like work! I never enjoyed exercising but this experience has changed my views! I actually look forward to going to class! Highly recommend! The progress is definitely noticeable , not just visibly by my body but my strength! Blown away!
I’m currently starting week 6 of my 12 week Transformation program at Victory Strength and Training. This program has given me the motivation and accountability I have needed while learning proper techniques during my workouts and an easy to follow nutrition plan. I was on the fence for a couple of years, but so glad I finally decided to invest in myself as I approach my upcoming 40th birthday. With 4 children (ages 11, 10, 7, 3) and very busy schedules, it’s been so hard to stay focused and consistent with my workouts and healthy eating. But with Bruce, Rebecca, and Austin’s help, I am learning to reach my fitness goals! I can’t wait to finish out the 12 week program and hopefully continue my fitness journey with VST.
My fiance, Eric, started at VSF unable to squat properly. He spent 2 private sessions with Bruce to work on safe form, then started classes with step-ups to build strength. Today, week 11 of his program, he squatted 80 lbs SAFELY and signed on for a full year at VSF. I have also signed on for a full year and am in my second round of 12 weeks; both of us couldn't recommend a better place to adapt a healthier lifestyle. Bruce and his team are extremely knowledgeable, motivating, and fun to work with! 😊
An awesome place to learn a better way of life. Fun atmosphere to get healthy in. Started out only going to do the 12 weeks an I still here. I’m eager to learn new ways to get stronger an healthier. I love all my trainers. They make it fun to get you butt kicked an achieve your goals.
I highly recommend this facility! Coaches are top notch, and are always there to help. I’ve managed to lose 80 pounds and with the training I’ve gotten have increased my running abilities ten fold! Client for life!!
Bait and switch. They talk about classes And that’s everything they’re advertising is and what I wanted. So I schedule an evaluation to learn about them and they try to talk me into expensive personal training rather than the class format that they advertise. I have worked out before so his reasoning for only allowing me to do personal training does not make sense. I have done both personal training and a small group format before a small group format work better for me and that’s what I wanted.￼
If you are looking for somewhere to improve your: strength, fitness, endurance, self image, mental health and physical health, and nutrition, do NOT look any further because this is the place for you! I could not have achieved what I have without them. I love the fact that the trainers are just as invested in my personal results as I am. Their programs are very personalized for each individual. I have learned so very much from this program. I am down countless inches and now weigh what I did in high school. I can’t recommend Victory Strength and Fitness enough! Still skeptical? Check out all the before and after pics! They show real people and real results (including mine).
I have always been skeptical about small.group gyms that also offer nutrition guides as well because I assume they just want my money and for me to buy their products which has been the case in some places I've checked out. I took advantage of the FREE class and discussed everything with Bruce and did a couple of exercises that were corrected and started my 12 wk course. finished that set and was excited about my results and the ease of the nutrition and being held accountable for it that I went for another 12 wks... LOL. Very enjoyable banter with the coaches and always encouraging and never judgemental
I absolutely recommend Victory Strength and Fitness for everyone who wants to achieve their fitness, strength, and health goals. You get to learn the way your body mechanics, nutrition regiments to accompany the workouts, and most importantly you get personal guidance every step of the way! All coaches are very attentive and truly helpful. You can come here with zero exercising experience and rest assured with every week you will be amazed to see your progress and will definitely want to come back for more! So glad I started this journey with Victory Strength and Fitness and will only encourage everyone to do the same!
After looking at the Twelve Week Transformation Program information and pictures, I knew that this was what I would need to get into shape. I suffer from depression, and many of the symptoms (weight gain, low motivation, feeling tired constantly, etc.) plagued me for years. The knowledge of how to eat, what to eat, and when to eat helped me make better food choices. Guidance with exercises, how to use the equipment, and tons of encouragement have given me the motivation and self confidence to stick with the program. I’m down three pant sizes, and still at it- I’ve signed up for another twelve weeks! I can’t say enough good things about the people, program, and the results! Here’s to my next twelve weeks!!
After having 3 babies and being in the worst shape of my life, I never thought I’d get back to pre-pregnancy weight. Since then, I’ve gotten back down to pre-pregnancy weight AND became so much stronger than I thought possible. My confidence has sky rocketed and I’m so glad I’ve made the investment in myself. All the coaches are amazing too!
Where should I begin?! I cannot express how much this place, the program, and the people at VSF mean to me. I am on a new path to being more healthy and fit. Being overweight often means feeling judged or not feeling understood. I have never felt that way with VSF. As a mom who is also a full-time teacher and firefighter wife, I cannot share how much VSF has changed my life. I have energy, drive, and joy after a long time of struggling. Thank you, VSF!
I was looking for someone to help me get back in shape after surgery, and I am thrilled to have found Bruce and his team. The personalized instruction in both fitness and nutrition have helped me establish a sustainable healthy lifestyle while achieving my fitness and recovery goals!
Victory Strength & Fitness changed my life. I was educated, motivated, encouraged and inspired by the fitness instructors. They provide detailed nutrition instructions that are easy to follow along with the education of why this nutrition works. The daily food log accountability helped me stay on track and I was guided and encouraged to try new things if my menu items were not the best choices. Every work out session was filled with encouragement from all the instructors and the one on one in a small class environment helped guide you to your full potential. There is no competition with the other members because everyone worked out according to their own pace & abilities and encouraged each other along the way. If you want to add life to your years, this is the place to go!
I was new to the Greenwood area and decided to give Victory Strength and Fitness a try. BEST decision I've made!! I wanted someone to help me get in shape and although I've only been there a week the food regimen and workouts have already made a huge impact on how I feel!! I would recommend them to anyone.
Victory Strength & Fitness is such an amazing gym. The trainers are great. I’ve learned so much already just for the few weeks I’ve been going. You get a nutrition plan to follow. They are all supportive and encouraging... never, ever condescending. I highly recommend it to anyone to work on getting healthier the right way.
I highly recommend Victory Strength and Fitness if you are ready to drop the unwanted pounds, learn to healthy, get healthy, and take your life back! Become a stronger, better version of you. You will be amazed at what you will be able to accomplish here through their amazing program!
I needed a change and some motivation, VSF promised and delivered both! I’ve completed several programs now with VSF and their team and so happy I joined! I’ve gained strength, confidence, energy, knowledge, and I feel so much better! The head coach and trainers are knowledgeable and helpful and they care! I don’t feel like “just another client” here.
I was looking for a personal trainer or small group to join for fitness classes & I came across Victory Strength & Fitness! I just finished my 2nd set of 12 week sessions & it has been awesome! I have learned a lot about proper ways to workout & also how to eat better & still enjoy my meals & snacks. I always look forward to workout classes & everyone had been great! Thank you
I have really enjoyed my time at VSF! I've learned a lot about nutrition and I've never been stronger! I've been with other trainers before and have been lifting wrong for awhile. When I leave a session, I feel strong and confident. If I'm moving wrong, my instructor immediately helps me correct my form so I'm lifting correctly. The vibe in the gym has been extremely important to me as well. I have never felt weak or silly from day one. Everyone has been super helpful and encouraging every step of the way and we have a lot of fun! Bruce has always been available to help me with all steps with nutrition as well. If you really want to make a fitness change and are willing to put in the work, I'd HIGHLY recommend VSF!!!
I’m super excited to see my end result at the conclusion of next week. Next week will be the last of my first 12 week program. So far, my energy, my food, and my daily routine has been so positively affected. It has bled into every area of my life. Doing this program with my wife has truly been a blessing to help make our relationship stronger. With work, kids, school, and everything getting so intense recently, this was the best decision we could have made to make our health a priority and it truly has increased our effectiveness in every area.
Love that it is basically a personal trainer in a small class setting! They help you make the corrections to your form to make sure you are getting the best out of your workout! Awesome place to work out!!
People complain that they don’t have 2-3 hours to spend in a gym. Then don’t! Come to a place where the workouts are individually tailored, and action packed...1 hour max (3-4 days per week). Supportive group mates that give encouragement during circuit training. Trainers that train each person individually - based on their capacity and growth plan, not someone else’s! Get functionally stronger, get more energy and endurance, get back to feeling younger and more vibrant, and get out of the doctor’s doghouse (by improving results due to a fitter you!). Cardio can only take you so far...I lost a lot of weight initially doing cardio only...but BMR was going down. What that means is if you stop cardio, you pick weight back up. By introducing weightlifting, I’m building healthier muscle that can continue to help with weight loss on my rest days. I still do Cardio, but paired with functional training!
personal training at best. All levels beginners to the very experienced...they do a great job to meet you where you are. I am at the beginners level and I can already see some improvements for the two weeks I have been there. Bruce and Chelsea are such great motivators. They are wholistic in their approach which includes nutrition, rest, workout regimens etc.
Couldn't speak more highly of my experience . Bruce pushes you to work your absolute hardest and get the most out of your time with him. Every workout is personalized to match up with your personal goals. Thank you Bruce for everything 💪💪💪
best decision I ever made trainers are amazing they push you and show you how to use right Technique and how to eat right while sending in daily food logs Bruce is amazing on reply back right away on your eating and gets on track by Recommendations that help me lose weight I lost 5 lbs this week now think in 8 weeks that 40lbs now what can go wrong come in see Bruce hope see u there come join the team
The folks at VSF are very helpful, small class sizes and always available to answer questions. The Amazing 12 program they have was pivotal in helping me with a healthy lifestyle change.
Victory Strength Fitness really changed my opinion on small gyms. I was really nervous about starting and committing, but after doing my initial consultation with Bruce I felt like VSF was exactly what I needed. You really get a lot of personal attention, knowledgeable trainers that truly care about you and your health, and awesome gym goers who motivate you too. VSF has been helping me transform my mental and physical health since April. There have been a few personal hiccups, but VSF never gave up on me. They would send messages personally checking in on me. It's not your typical brute lifting facility. As a woman, sometimes a lifting gym can be really intimidating, VSF is not that place at all!! I highly recommend them to my friends and family every week.
VSF is a good place to lift because it’s not over crowded. You get one on one or a very low ratio of client to trainer. Trainers are very knowledgeable of not only lift technique, but also nutrition. I have seen great results and have lost 7% body fat, 40lbs and gained tons of strength in the last 6 months.
I did the 12 week program here and it was the best program I could've signed up for. Great one on one attention and accountability with dieting and workout form/lifts/weights/etc. Victory Strength is there to just make it easier and more enjoyable. I encourage anyone who has hit a wall or just isn't seeing the results they want to try Victory Strength. We think we know it all and can do it on our own. But we're human, and life happens. Victory Strenth provides that extra attention and boost to really get you to your goals and the body that you've always wanted.
I’ve been working with the trainers at VSF for almost 6months now and I am amazed at how much it has changed me body, mind and soul. I have more strength and stamina obviously, but I also simply feel better. I would and have recommended this program to anyone!
If you are hesitant to start an exercise program because of inexperience with lifting, then this program is for you! The coaches are very patient, teach technique, and walk you through the program step by step. There are a variety of days/times available, and the flexibility allows me to fit exercise into my busy schedule. I am so glad I decided to give Victory Strength and Fitness a try!
Every day is great with the way Bruce and all the coaches work with you in strength training. However Saturday’s have become my favorite. You leave feeling like you got your butt kicked, and you know it’s for the good!
I’ve been at VSF for a while now and it has been one of the best decisions I’ve made. Bruce is absolutely amazing and a tremendous teacher and motivator. He is extremely knowledgeable and you can see his passion for helping others. I’ve enjoyed all the friendships I’ve made here and can say that ever person I’ve worked out with has been extremely kind and motivating to each other. I have made great strides in my strength and weight loss and I’m excited to see future results. If you are thinking of getting in shape and making some great friendships this is THE place to come.
Great place to come for a strength transformation! I found myself gaining weight because of my sedentary lifestyle and joining this gym gave me a newly found motivation to make myself healthier and stronger. Workouts include circuit training, weight lifting and tons of other activities like flipping tires. Bruce gives you a diet plan and the whole program revolves around building your endurance and making sure you push yourself to the limit. I've been going here for 10 weeks now and I feel amazing. Highly recommended for people staying in the Greenwood/Southport area.
After seeing the advertisements routinely on Facebook, I knew I wanted to give VSF a try. In just 5 weeks I have lost 23lbs and gained so much knowledge on getting healthier! Bruce and his staff are awesome!! *Update* 07/04/2019 After completing 16 weeks I committed to an additional 6 months to maintain, and continue getting stronger. I am down a total of 55 lbs since i started and working out has become something I enjoy instead of dreading! The small group concept, coaching and nutrition guidance has proven effective for me and countless others...thanks Bruce and the other VSF staff!!
Where to start? I could go on all day about how this amazing facility has changed my life. I started at VSF at the beginning of the year to change my lifestyle, get healthy, and strong. In my first 8 weeks of being enrolled I lost 17.6 lbs and over 12 inches! I had a knee issue that required physical therapy and potential surgery. VSF's strength techniques helped me to graduate from PT after just 6 weeks, months ahead of schedule and avoiding surgery! Since late March, I have continued to lose body fat and inches working out 3-4x a week. I am currently down 36lbs and 27 inches! I choose to continue working out at VSF because they are making my goals a reality. It's the only place I've found where the program ACTUALLY works! Not only are the trainers knowledgeable, compassionate, and motivated to see you succeed, the members that attend here are a direct reflection of the staff. Every member that I have met at VSF is kind, supportive, and hard working. We are all dedicated to helping each other succeed, while embracing the knowledge that we are gaining along the way. If you decide to give them a try, I guarantee that you will not be disappointed. UPDATE: It's been over a year now that I've been consistently working out at VSF, which is a huge accomplishment in itself. I started working out there to become healthier and to prepare for my friend's wedding. I decided to continue that journey so I could be fit for life, not just an event. I've become a healthier, stronger, active, and more confident mom, daughter, friend, professional, and girlfriend. I do things for fun that I wouldn't have chosen to do a year ago. I chose to be healthier so when my daughter looks back at our adventures together, she remembers me being right beside her instead of on the sidelines. It makes everyday tasks so much easier. I can currently bench press 100 lbs. for multiple sets...something I couldn't do a year ago. Are you ready to make a change?
Not your typical gym…no high pressure sales. Bruce takes the time to learn about you, your goals and your abilities. He cares about YOU and your health. So much more than a personal trainer. The food knowledge and how/what to eat are invaluable…knowledge that works for the rest of your life. All the coaches work with you to make sure your form is correct to eliminate injuries, every session. They listen if you have concerns about food or training. Bottom line is…they care. So if you care about your health, you should check it out and join.
Super organized and passionate about helping you succeed in learning and leading a healthy lifestyle! I look forward to my workouts and have seen progress in just a few short weeks! #goals#lovelegday#circuit
I highly recommend this facility. Quit being on the fence about it and join one of the classes. If you want to lose fat and gain strength then this is the place to be. The staff is great and very motivating. I've lost lots of weight and gained muscle and strength.
I have been going to Victory Strength and Fitness for 3 weeks now and the knowledge that is there is amazing. I went from eating fast food almost every day and now I'm eating better than I have in a long time. Only 3 weeks and I have more strength and motivation than I have had since high school. Thank you for all the help!
It has been almost 8 weeks since my journey with VSF and Bruce started. I am a lazy person to go to the gym and I always look out for reasons not to move! Surprisingly, there hasn’t been one Class that I didn’t want to go for, even Saturday mornings! I am loosing pounds and lifting heavier weights each week! The Group energy is amazing and the way we push each other just makes us better every day. Cheers to everyone, who wants to start a weight loss journey.
You see these ads on TV that show people putting in ‘real work and getting real results.’ Well, the people getting real results at VSF were all my buddies. LEGIT! I had to jump on board because I was motivated to get those results. I’m a month in. Shape is coming back to my body. I know how to safely lift weights now. My eating habits and knowledge are something I can take forward forever. My mile time is already down minute as well. Well worth the investment if you are willing to do the work and follow the program. Thanks VSF! Can’t wait to see how much farther I’ll go...
I have been going to VSF for 8 weeks now, and it has been amazing! Bruce is fun to work with, really knows his stuff, and is very detail-oriented, with a lot of focus on correct posture and biomechanics while performing every exercise/movement. So NO INJURIES! I enjoy working out in a structured manner, and doing so with a small group not only makes it fun but also keeps me accountable! Definitely worth my money!
Bruce is an excellent trainer. He knows his stuff and can help you achieve your fitness and strength goals. I did the 8 week 3x program and will definitely continue to come to VSF.
"Whether it's lack of belief in the value of a personal coach/trainer, or limiting belief in the expected results. It's a very simple yet PROVEN program with a very personable coach. Bruce was so easy to work with! ...Think about it, every professional athlete has a coach or mentor to help educate them, push them, and help them achieve their goals. Victory Strength and Fitness has a proven program to educate and train you to get those results and I'm proof of that. To be honest, the cost was a bargain in comparison to the results I received and what I learned. It's also a bargain in comparison to many other coaching programs out there. You truly cannot put a price on your health. I'm glad I didn't wait any longer to do something about it or I might have paid a much higher price later. VSF has the coaching and the tools, all you need to do is GO FOR IT!!"
