Fantastic experience: I reviewed BOLT when I joined almost three years ago, but I have come to appreciate the trainers and other members even more. I have seen huge gains in my strength, stamina, and balance, and even my bone density has improved! They checked in with us through pandemic shutdowns, and offered online classes so we didn't lose ground. Fantastic place and staff!

Fantastic experience: Experienced, knowledgeable coaches tailor work outs to help you achieve your goals. Great facility. Friendly supportive members. I've been a member for nearly 6 years now.

Irene Rainier 1 year ago

Fantastic experience: I can't believe I've been a member of BOLT Fitness and Performance Training for almost six years now. I can't imagine not going to this place almost everyday of the week! The coaches are knowledgeable, kind, friendly and truly care about each one of us! Not only that, I have formed some wonderful relationships with other members. During the height of Covid, they created zoom sessions and loaned out equipment just to keep us fit and healthy! This kept the BOLT community alive at a time when we most needed it. I cannot say enough about this gym. This is my original review from when I first became a member: I do not think I would change a thing about it: I was never much of a "Gym" person. I always felt intimidated by other members. I wasn't sure if what I was doing was making any difference in my progress. So, I never stayed at any one gym for any length of time. I decided to give BOLT a try since it was so close to my home. I went in with the attitude of "let's see what this place is all about" and boy, am I glad that I did! I knew during the first session that this place was special and I needed to be here. I was hooked. Every class is like having a personal trainer. The classes they have created are effective, you feel the results. Plus they make sure you are doing the exercises correctly. They also modify any exercise to meet your needs or restrictions you may have. The atmosphere in this gym is "judge free", motivational and encouraging. Not only is it a place to workout, but they hold seminars which talk about eating properly & being mindful, etc as well as a private member facebook page where motivational and educational posts are made daily. Joining this gym was one of the BEST choices I have ever made and I highly recommend it to all!

Fantastic experience: Knowledgeable and caring coaches help guide you to becoming a better you. Friendly members and staff make it an enjoyable place to train.

Zoe Ward 1 year ago

Fantastic experience: I’ve been a part of the family since 2019 and can’t say enough about the team. All the coaches are supportive, workouts are fun and the environment has been the best to keep me both focused on my goals and keep me coming back for more. No matter what ago, shape or size or level of fit you are currently, whatever your goals, the team at Bolt will help you achieve it!

Fantastic experience: Update: In the first day of the pandemic shutdown, BOLT transitioned to offering online classes via Zoom. All of us were overwhelmed and apprehensive, and it was easy to slip into darkness. But knowing that BOLT was there at 7AM every day helped me get out of bed. I started with day 1, and after 365 days of pandemic living, I had logged 333 workouts with BOLT. The community and coaches kept me (and keep me) going - and my abs have never been stronger! The BOLT team has adapted over time, and they continue to adjust to provide the best atmosphere for staying in shape. Original review: I've never loved to work out, and I've never understood people who loved going to the gym every day. My goal in joining a gym was to guilt myself into going a few times a week because I know it's important for my health and well being. BOLT has changed my attitude. I wake up each morning and head to the gym, knowing that I will be welcomed by a community, encouraged by my coaches and newfound friends, and engaged in a workout that meets me at my level - no matter what that level is from day to day. The coaching team knows exactly when to push me, when to joke with me, and when to just let me focus inward. The circuit of Sweat class keeps me moving - which is great because my biggest complaint about working out is that I get bored easily! I love being able to get in and out in under an hour and then head to work for the day. BOLT engages each member at his/her own level, provides excellent instruction for moving forward in your fitness goals, and, most importantly, creates an environment that is supportive, friendly, and team-oriented.

Brenda Eisenhardt 2 years ago

Fantastic experience: Edited for 2021 - BOLT navigated the COVID 19 Pandemic without skipping a bet. Mike and all of the coaches were encouraging, always sending messages, checkin-in with member on our physical and mental health. Virtual workouts transitioned into outdoor workouts, etc. It was such a sense of normalcy to maintain a successful workout regimen during such a crazy time. / Would give BOLT Fitness endless stars. The atmosphere at BOLT is amazing. The trainers are encouraging, knowledgeable, non judgmental and fun to be around. The classes are challenging and almost made to order. Want a light day - take it easy. Want a challenge - work harder. The trainers push you just enough and they know your capabilities. You will never find a member who is not smiling at the end of a workout.

Lori Baker 2 years ago

Fantastic experience: A little over two years ago became a member of the BOLT family. I had been a member of numerous gyms where I would show up, walk the treadmill, do the elliptical, maybe lift a few weights, and said great I went to the gym. However I never really saw results. BOLT has been life-changing not only physically but mentally. I am in better shape at 60 then I was at 40, and that is the honest truth. My aches and pains have virtually disappeared, not to mention being down 25 pounds. Going to part has become part of my routine rather than a dreaded part of my life. I cannot thank Coaches Mike, Tom, Luis, and Mike for all their encouragement, support, as well as their awesome senses of humor! Thanks to the fellow members of BOLT for all your encouragement and support. TRULY A PLACE LIKE NO OTHER!

Carrie Polglase 2 years ago

Fantastic experience: A year and a half after joining BOLT Fitness continues to be an awesome experience! Trainers are knowledgeable and motivating. The members have been friendly and welcoming. The classes are always different, challenging and fun. I'm excited to be part of the BOLT family. Highly recommend!

Rebekah Forlenza 2 years ago

Fantastic experience: I've belonged to 3 other gyms in the past 10 years. I'd try a few classes, feel lost in the weightlifting area, and relegate myself to running on the treadmill for 30 minutes. After a few months I'd burn out and stop going. BOLT is completely different. I LOVE showing up at my BOLT classes. The classes are engaging, exercises are explained and modified as needed, I get an incredible workout, feel great, have fun, and for the first time in my life I'm working out and seeing results. 5 stars isn't enough. I feel better physically and mentally than I ever have in my life.

Debra Asbury 2 years ago

Fantastic experience: Caring, supportive staff and fellow members makes this a great place to workout. Bolt provides individualized programs tailored toward your goals, constant encouragement and a fun environment. I highly recommend giving Bolt a try to see the difference. It is a gym like no other.

Peggy Banko 2 years ago

Fantastic experience: First of all, I am not a gym person...never was. I needed to get myself in shape after years of enjoying food way too much! I found Bolt online and went in to speak with Mike. He listened to me and helped me set some goals and now it's a year later and I look forward to going to the gym just about every day. The team of coaches, Mike, Tom, Luis and Mike W. all care about the members and work to make the workouts challenging and results focused. My goals have evolved and I am doing things I never thought I could ever do! Now my husband and 2 children are members are we all love it! Cannot say enough about this is really the best!

Meg Kuhn 2 years ago

Fantastic experience: Positive: Communication , Professionalism , Quality Bolt Fitness and Performance is fabulous! The programs are specifically designed for me. The coaches know my weakness and my strengths . They believe in the well being of the whole person!Everyone is so kind and helpful from the owners to the coaches to fellow members . I am so happy I found BOLT #BOLTFITFAM

Fantastic experience: UPDATED REVIEW: Bolt has done an amazing job staying open while keeping all of its members safe and healthy. I am so grateful that I have had this wonderful gym during these crazy times- my dose of sanity. I cannot thank them enough. I absolutely love BOLT. I have belonged to other local gyms, but the open gym left me unmotivated and the classes were either not my thing or at inconvenient times. Most importantly, every coach here is keenly aware of your body mechanics for every exercise. As you get older it is much easier to injure yourself doing the most seemingly innocuous things. Paying attention to your body position instead of egging you on to just lift a heavier weight is important. Most of all, every coach here is motivating and fun. I am sad when I don’t make it in and know I will have a great day when I start it off here.

Courtney N 2 years ago

Fantastic experience: BOLT has everything you could want in a small group fitness gym! Personable and knowledgeable coaches who offer clients individualized attention and make modifications when necessary. Diversified workouts that are both challenging and fun. No matter your fitness level or experience, the coaches at BOLT will meet you where you are and cheer you on to reach your goals. And, the best part—between the amazing coaches and all of BOLT’s welcoming gym members, you’re guaranteed to have a great time!

sydney bond 2 years ago

Fantastic experience: BOLT has been a huge part of my fitness and athletic journey. I personally did private sessions with Moe as I trained to prepare for D1 college volleyball. Each session was specially designed for my needs to increase my agility, strength, and speed. All of the trainers there are extremely knowledgeable and give you there all no matter the time of day or night. Not to mention, the other members of BOLT are also supportive, encouraging, and determined which made BOLT feel like fam! BOLT is definitely the place to go no matter where you are on your fitness journey.

Heidi Spanier 3 years ago

Fantastic experience: Bolt isn't just about working out! Besides the excellent work outs that the trainers can tweak to match your needs, they care about your health! They have awesome coaches who help you with diet, exercise, sleep, stress, and overall well being because they truly care. I have learned so much and am constantly encouraged and motivated in ways to stay healthy. Love this place!

Weena Sunjit 3 years ago

Fantastic experience: It has been 2 years that I workout here, 5-6 days a week and still I've never get bored working out here at BOLT. Coaches are knowledgeable and super friendly.

Whitney R 3 years ago

Fantastic experience: I love BOLT! I joined last year, shortly before we went into lockdown. The support of the coaches through that time (even for a newbie they didn’t really know well) was just beyond. Then when things started to open back up, their ingenuity was clearly on display as they got us back to the gym for outdoor workouts & eventually back into the gym. The coaches are continually creative with the workouts, always there to help if you need a modification, and are great cheerleaders! Additionally, the members of the gym are so supportive of one another and friendly. It’s a great atmosphere & I would highly recommend Bolt to anyone looking to get fit, no matter your current fitness level...oh and it is super clean. Five stars all the way!

Cathy Brady 3 years ago

Fantastic experience: Bolt is the BEST!! I have been a member for over 2 years and would not ever consider moving to a different facility to workout. Mike Baker had a dream and made it into a reality that has helped many people achieve their fitness goals and well as life goals. Mike and his team Tom, Luis and Mike W are like no other trainers I have ever been around. They make it a point to really get to know everyone who walks through the door. The workouts are challenging and different everyday. No time to get bored!! Bolt is a family of people all there to achieve a better quality of life. I wish i could post more than 5 stars!!

Michelle Drag 3 years ago

Fantastic experience: I’ve belonged to many gyms and this outranks them all. It is different then any gym I’ve ever been to and you know it the second you walk through the front door and the trainers all say hello to you by name. They go above and beyond every step of the way. If you are looking for some place that is not intimidating, friendly, and holds you accountable, this is the place.

Dana Levens 3 years ago

Fantastic experience: After moving to Chester and having to leave my former gym (which I was very attached to), I needed to find something to help me stay active, but nervous to try something new. A friend recommended Bolt and I am so glad I gave it a shot! It really is a fun atmosphere with challenging classes and friendly, knowledgeable trainers. I always look forward to going! It’s just one of those situations where once you go, you know ;)

Karen Ferrone 4 years ago

Fantastic experience: I've been a Bolt member for over a year now. I have never been so strong and toned. The trainers have been helping change my mindset regarding health and food. I've never enjoyed going to a fitness center before, now I actually look forward to going. Every level of fitness is welcome. Programs can be adapted for all. Make that call and check out Bolt, you won't be dissapointed.

Linda Blazier 4 years ago

Fantastic experience: I needed to do something for myself after a very stressful year left me with some bad habits. On a whim, I called Mike at Bolt and met up with him the very next morning for a one-on-one. I knew it was a great fit! In all my years of being a gym member, I have NEVER truly gotten into a regular routine, but I have found that, at Bolt, I am happy to hop in my car and get there for my workouts! The coaches are friendly, encouraging, and truly create a family atmosphere. I am so very happy here!

Laura Thrun 4 years ago

Fantastic experience: Trainers are top notch, gym is clean and organized, workouts are fun and fast-paced. The three week trial allows enough time to try all the programs and for the trainers to learn about your goals and background. There is no better place to workout.

Julie Zaccarino 4 years ago

Fantastic experience: I can't say enough about this gym! I have joined many gyms in the past, but Bolt is by far the best experience yet! It offers the entire package. The workouts are fun, challenging, and always changing. The coaches are amazing! They are positive and inspiring and always make sure you get the most out of every workout, even if it has to be tailored to you. But the best part of all is the community of members that belong here! Everyone pushes each other to try their hardest, and of course to have fun and make friends at the same time. I wouldn't trade this gym for any other!

Ellen Fergus 4 years ago

Fantastic experience: Love this gym! Great addition to Chester. The trainers are motivating & they make the workouts fun! I feel fortunate to be a part of the Bolt family.

Vasudha Tulsyan 4 years ago

Fantastic experience: I just completed my 1 month trial with Bolt fitness and decided to join the gym. I have enjoyed every class. Every single member of the staff has been encouraging, supportive and fun. Even in a group class exercises can be tailored to your level. Highly recommend!

Mike Giffin 4 years ago

Fantastic experience: The owner and his fellow trainers are fantastic. They do a great job at listening to their clients and have the knowledge and ability to change exercises/training plans based on each client’s needs. The positive and motivating atmosphere is like no other gym I have been a member of and has kept me coming in regularly for 18+ months. The other members are all very encouraging and there really is no judgment at all of anyone.

Gary Lakritz 4 years ago

Fantastic experience: I have been going to Bolt for about 9 months now and it has been great. The trainers really care about each members progress and watch over us to make sure we are doing the exercises properly. They recognize that no one improves if they are injured. Also, the variety in exercise routines keeps us from getting bored. This place rocks.

Sharon B. 4 years ago

Fantastic experience: I joined Bolt Fitness recently, and the classes have been awesome. In the past four weeks of strength and sweat classes, I am constantly seeing new exercises which breaks up the routine and keeps me guessing. The location is easy, the members are friendly, and the atmosphere is fun and motivating. Highly recommended!

Micol Viscuso 4 years ago

Fantastic experience: I consider myself an active person but not a gym goer. As I get more mature in years I’m finding my activeness is not doing enough for my health and my physique. So when my 13 year old son came to me asking to join Bolt I thought I would try it too. The owner and the trainers are extremely knowledgeable about physical training. They are helping my target muscles that I’m not using in my hikes, yard work and yoga. And the best part is they are doing this all without workout machines!

Patrick Ryan, DC 4 years ago

Fantastic experience: I've been working out at BOLT since October 2018 and it has been great. The STRENGTH and SWEAT classes have the perfect balance of difficulty and safety that I need to keep making progress and not get injured. The coaches are knowledgeable and friendly and the other members work hard and have fun.

Michelle Fremund 4 years ago

Fantastic experience: I had always been a very active person. After completing my 4th marathon in late 2016, I had stopped running and wasn’t active in any way. I wasn’t feeling good about myself and had heard a lot of people around town recommending Bolt Fitness so I decided to give it a try. From the day I started in November 2017, I have never looked back! Bolt is so much more than your typical gym. Mike Baker has built a gym with knowledgeable and inspirational coaches who ensure members are using proper techniques and at the same time push each member to their full potential. Workouts change on a daily basis (which keeps it interesting) and coaches will modify any exercises of the workout if you have an injury. The members of Bolt feel like a family, celebrating successes together and encouraging each other through the challenges. Bolt is truly a gym that focuses on health, nutrition, friendships and fun!

Noelle Capuzzi 5 years ago

Fantastic experience: BOLT Fitness is a fun, challenging and vibrant fitness community. Everyone is fantastic! The trainers push you hard in every workout, but always with their friendly and encouraging demeanor. The members support and encourage each other. The circuit workouts make the time in the gym fly by. So thankful Mike brought BOLT to Chester!

Shari Kaine 5 years ago

Fantastic experience: If you are looking for an experience that will change how you view training this is the place to come! I love the personal coaching I get within the small class sizes, Mike & Tom make sure to create workouts that train the whole body and are always willing to adjust for what you need. Every time I go I can’t believe how quickly a class goes by!They take the time to know their members, to them you aren’t just a number but a person! I love this gym - it’s worth checking out if you need a positive change!

Ben Beiting 5 years ago

Fantastic experience: Mike, Tom, and Tyler do a great job of structuring and running the classes! I enjoy coming because every workout is different and challenging. They also do a great job of motivating and interacting with everyone. If you are looking for a great place to get in shape, Bolt is your place!!

Cathy Weaver 5 years ago

Fantastic experience: I have tried many gyms but finally found a place that I truly enjoy. The 45 minute Sweat classes fly by with challenging circuit workouts. The trainers are very knowledgeable and will tailor your workout if needed. Highly recommend Bolt to all!

Clayton Pollard 5 years ago

Fantastic experience: BOLT is where it's at if you are looking for a welcoming, friendly, and encouraging place that pushes you at the right times and supports you all the way! Coming in with little experience in the gym and not knowing what I needed, Mike listened to my goals, helped to build the habit and consistency, and always checks in with how I'm feeling. All the coaches are amazingly supportive and genuinely want to help everyone reach their goals and be the best they can be. They strive to push you in the way that is right for you when you need it, while maintaining an atmosphere that builds you up! I can't say enough about the success I've seen in my year and a half with BOLT, and I actually look forward to 6am workouts on Mondays!

Toni DeSantis 5 years ago

Fantastic experience: Let me start by saying I never was a gym person it took me a couple decades to finally become someone who actually enjoys working out, and that is 100% because of Bolt . I came into Bolt after New Years clueless of what This place was about all I knew was it was close to home and that was a start for one less excuse for later to use for when I quit. That was my attitude going in , at first I didn't see a ton of different intimidating machines and equipment which already put me at ease . Cause in the past I would join a (no contract) gym and walk in and do only what looked uncomplicated to me cause I couldn't remember from my five min intro on day one how to use the machines, and I didn't want to look like an idiot doing it wrong . But when I met with the owner Mike he went over what they do here and it was exactly what I needed they have classes , personal training ,small group training , and much more . I started with the personal training and loved it , then I reluctantly tried classes which I was nervous about cause all I kept thinking was can I keep up , But the trainers here are so great that it doesn't matter if it's your first class or tenth class or how many people are in the classes they manage to assist anyone that needs it. If you have any previous injuries or ailments they know just what you should or shouldn't be doing , And amazingly with all the clients they remember from day one what your issues are and again are always right on top of it making sure you don't injure yourself , that's the kind of attention and detail you get form this place and it doesn't stop there , they send out weekly emails about nutrition and fitness, oh and did I mention the check-ins to see if there is anything they can do to make it better for us. From that point on I was hooked and can honestly say this was one of the best things I did for myself !! If you are like me and read reviews on EVERYTHING before you purchase it or join someplace I hope this helps cause if you are looking for not just another gym but a fun, energetic ,friendly , and (most importantly to me at least ) unintimadating group of knowledgeable trainers to get you in shape and stay healthy then you'll find it at Bolt!!!!

Courtney Weyers 5 years ago

Fantastic experience: It is hard to put into words all that I get from Bolt. The workouts are challenging and you get out of them what you put into them. However, Bolt is so much more than that. Mike and his team are there for you every step of the way. Whether you need advice with nutrition, an injury, or just day to day encouragement. I have been to alot of fitness facilities and I have never experienced anything like this. Like I said, it's hard to put into words. Try it, I promise you won't regret it!!!! I never have!!!

Tara Lauterbach 5 years ago

Fantastic experience: One of the best experiences I have had with fitness. I no longer have pain or tension in my shoulders when I do upper body and NOW, I DO UPPER BODY. They teach you the right way to workout. I wish I found them long ago, I would have saved a lot of time & $$ on physical therapy. It's Fun, the staff and members are supportive, & no Peacocks or Gym Buffs here. Just hard working people looking to do better and keep themselves healthy. Definitely try the trial offer.
