Gibran Medina
"Amazing facility and top of the line equipment. This gym has always been my go to from day one. I can’t imagine any another gym being better."
Mayra Adame
"Since joining Nightmare Muscle, I feel more comfortable and confident in lifting. I've always been a fairly shy person with many self-doubts in what I am capable of. But feeling the support, the reassurance, and being in a space where I don't feel any negative judgement has made me feel less of that imposter syndrome I had previously experienced at other gyms."
Kai Stasinakis
"My favorite thing about nightmare is the community and atmosphere. The community is always coming together to help one another out and bring out the best in everyone!"
Rahim Benson
"Since coming to nightmare no commercial gym is the same they can’t compare!"
Kat Wang
"The best gym in the area! Lots of good equipment and so many different types of specialized bars. The community is great and if you’re looking to PR, this is the place to be!! Everyone is super friendly so if you’re new to powerlifting, or even just the gym, anyone will be happy to help!"
John D. Reynolds III
"Nightmare Muscle Gym is an awesome place to train and find your fitness path. There are cool people in the gym, the owner is awesome, and the brand is fantastic for the sport. More importantly it is just a lifter friendly environment where you can make friends and train hard all that same time."
