Fantastic experience: Training Ground has been an awesome experience. The space has every kind of equiptment you could want and is never too crowded. I've been working with Jason for 3 months and could not recommend him more. Our workouts are always varried and I continue to improve.

Fantastic experience: I have been training at Training Ground for 3 months and the trainer assigned to me is "Perfect". We have fun while performing strengthening exercise which is exactly what I signed up for to keep up with my grandson!

Fantastic experience: Thank you, to my fave 5:30am “friend,”;-) Steve Evans! Since last summer, I have spent my early Tuesday & Thursday mornings with him and the improvement to my strength and fitness is immense! His talent for training and skill development along with his smart selection of complementary exercises are invaluable! Thank you, Steve — I so appreciate you!

Fantastic experience: Working out at TG with Kat is my favorite part of the week. The workouts are amazing and the venue is first class! Always clean and a fun vibe!

Fantastic experience: Training Ground is a wonderful place to train. They are conveniently located in downtown Bethesda. They have a great, open space, with all the equipment you could need. But the best thing about Training Ground is the trainers. I have been working with Tony for over a year and could not be happier. His workouts are custom tailored to me and my needs and are super effective. I always look forward to our weekly training sessions.

Fantastic experience: Steve at Training Ground is an incredible trainer. As an avid runner, Steve has helped me with injury prevention through weight training and held me accountable for doing more than just pounding the pavement. Highly recommend Steve!

Jennifer McCollum 1 year ago

Fantastic experience: Tony Passero has been our 14-year-old son's trainer for a year, and together with his best friend, they work out several times a month. The Training Ground facility is clean, contemporary, and comprehensive. But mostly, Tony creates a positive and encouraging environment, operating as a mentor and trusted coach to these two young men. We are grateful we found the Training Ground!

Fantastic experience: I have been working out with Jenai since the beginning of my pregnancy. I was a bit worried with working out and she helped me feel confident in being able to do work outs that were the best for being pregnant. I feel like it really helped me to maintain better balance and control my weight gain. Training Ground (and all interactions with Steve) has been great overall and I am really glad I found it. It is definitely a financial investment but I am very glad I committed!

Fantastic experience: I've been working out with Keren since May this year, which was one of the best decisions I have made recently. Keren helped me to achieve my initial goal. She applies a lot of different programs to make the workout fun and tailored to my specific needs. Both TG and Keren are the best training facility and trainer I have experienced! Rachel

Fantastic experience: Positive: Communication , Professionalism , Quality I have been going to the Training Ground for a year and a half now and have nothing but positive things to say about it. They offer personal trainers that know how to cater workouts so that you can achieve your goals and provide positive feedback and energy that motivates you to work harder.

Deepa Kumar 1 year ago

Fantastic experience: Keren is AWESOME! She makes sure to push me every time I meet with her and I definitely feel stronger because of it. I love to travel and when I travelled this year to Europe I noticed I was never out of breath anymore when climbing all the steps and hills that often come with traveling to Europe :) This wasn’t the case a few years ago! Made my travels much more enjoyable. She is also so fun to work out with that I hardly feel the hour go by!! I consider her my friend as well as m try trainer now. Thanks for everything Keren!

Charlotte Platt 1 year ago

Fantastic experience: I’ve been working with my trainer Hillary at Training Ground for a couple months and she has been such a source of support. She is knowledgeable about nutrition and has made helpful suggestions to ensure I succeed in this journey. Our workouts have not always been easy but I appreciate the encouragement that she—and the other trainers—provide to keep me going. 100% recommend.

Caroline H 1 year ago

Fantastic experience: Positive: Communication , Professionalism , Quality Training Ground offers the best trainers and facility. Steve Evans is an outstanding personal trainer. I always look forward to our training sessions - he makes me work hard, push myself and still with a smile on my face. The facility is clean, friendly and they keep their equipment updated. Highly recommend!

Erika Faust 1 year ago

Fantastic experience: I’ve been working with Isiejah for about a year at Training Ground, and it’s been great! I always look forward to workouts with Isiejah – he knows when to push and motivate me to work harder and celebrates my achievements, even the small ones. My strength and endurance have improved enormously through CrossFit and Olympic weightlifting-style training. He’s great at programming progressions into my sessions so I can learn new skills, and Training Ground has all the equipment needed for great workouts.

Fantastic experience: Next Phase is great. Terrific facilities and excellent trainers. I have trained with Steve and Keren and both are really good at personalizing each workout to meet my needs and varying the moves to engage and challenge me. While I look forward to getting back to Training Ground, Keren has done an outstanding job of virtual training. All we need are a few dumbbells, some stretch bands and a yoga mat for floor work. Add a chair to help with balance and we are all set. I highly recommend Next Phase. Another great year at Training Ground (2022). I chose to stay virtual with Keren and train twice a week using yoga mat, dumbbells, multiple stretch bands, large ball, and my body. We work on agility, balance, upper and lower body strength, core. endurance, etc. Good warm up to begin and stretches to end. The Training Ground gym is well equipped if you prefer to go there. Keren has helped me improve on all elements. And the manager Steve will match you with the best trainer for your needs and goals. I highly recommend Training Ground.

Daniel Gordon 1 year ago

Fantastic experience: I've been going to Training Ground for about a year and have been working out with Tony. He's been wonderful and the facility is great.

Elizabeth Padgett 1 year ago

Fantastic experience: Overall, it’s a great experience to train here. 1:1 personal attention with the ability to train with a friend if you want, plenty of space so it never feels crowded, and tons of equipment so it doesn’t get boring. And, most importantly, Keren is great at encouraging and motivating in a supportive atmosphere.

Clayton Burkhardt 1 year ago

Fantastic experience: My fiance and I have been doing personal training with Jason since October and we are amazed at the progress that we've made in such a short time. From our experiences, the whole staff is knowledgeable, accommodating, professional, friendly, and motivational. We highly recommend.

Giuseppe Randazzo 1 year ago

Fantastic experience: My wife has been working out with Steve Evans at the Training Ground (Bethesda) and talked me into giving it a shot, and I sure am glad she did. Not only is the environment conducive for a great workout, supervised by great trainers (Steve is ours and is excellent), but the fashion in which we are trained has been very rewarding. In fact, I like it so much that I am now trying the golf specific training and hoping to improve my game on the course next summer. Thanks TC and Steve for helping us to aspire to bigger goals!

Rebecca Hekman 1 year ago

Fantastic experience: Hillary Hoffman is amazing! She is very knowledgeable and is an excellent motivator. I love working with her!

Jason Dahl 1 year ago

Fantastic experience: I have worked with two trainers at different times, and Steve and Jason have both been great. They are nice people who know what they are doing and come prepared. The facility is clean with lots of space and cool equipment.

D Jones 1 year ago

Fantastic experience: Steve and the Training Ground crew are amazing. I’ve had a great experience. I’ve vastly increased my strength and cardiovascular endurance and improved my form since I’ve started working with Steve in 2019. Can’t recommend Training Ground enough.

William Montjoy 1 year ago

Fantastic experience: I hired Steve Evans to work out with my son, a JV baseball player, over the summer. Steve knew exactly what to do. His degree in Kinesiology showed through. He knew how to work a young athlete's body to maximize strength and muscle growth without overdoing it. Because Steve was able to activate all parts of my son's body during the workouts, my son returned to school fitter than ever. The coaches commented that my son's pitching arm had more "whip" than ever as a result of the high-intensity boxing workouts. His velocity and movement had also increased beyond expectations. The coaches told my son to keep doing the same thing going forward. I thank Steve for not just being a trainer, but being a "smart" trainer.

Fantastic experience: I absolutely love Next Phase! All of the trainers are great and it is such a good family like environment. Every time I go into the studio I know I’m gonna get a great workout in while being surrounded by great people.

Brady Gambatese 2 years ago

Fantastic experience: Great trainers and a great facility. I have been working out with Hillary Hoffman and Tony Passero for some time now. Both are extremely knowledgeable, supportive and friendly! I highly recommend Hillary & Tony and the Training Ground.

Janell 2 years ago

Fantastic experience: I never write reviews but I have been working with Gail (my personal trainer) for almost a year and I have enjoyed every moment of it. For me working out consistently is a challenge because of work exhaustion but I know if I am having a particularly rough day Gail can adjust my training session to suit my needs. Plus the workouts are fun because I love to see myself do things I never thought I could do before. I even entered a Spartan Stadion race with Gail as my partner and managed to get to the finish line! It doesn't feel like a chore to work out but an outlet to de-stress plus everyone is friendly so it's not intimidating to go in regularly.

Fantastic experience: Positive: Communication , Professionalism , Quality This place is amazing! Keren is great. Camila is great. Emma is great. I haven’t taken other coaches’ classes but I’m looking forward to because I am sure they are great! It makes exercise so fun. I just can’t say enough good things about this studio!

Elysia Casaday 2 years ago

Fantastic experience: Positive: Professionalism , Quality I've been working out with Kat for 3 years twice a week. I've never had the same workout. The gym and equipment at TG are top of the line and everyone there is welcoming and makes you feel comfortable. It's the best gym I've ever belonged to, and Kat is simply the best.

Elayne Heisler 2 years ago

Fantastic experience: Hillary is great! She has really worked with me on my form and I've seen gains in flexibility, mobility and strength.

Ashley Woodhouse 2 years ago

Fantastic experience: I love everything about Training Ground - the competent, professional, friendly trainers, the clean and open environment, the best equipment, and less people which has been really important for me during the pandemic. My trainer Steve is the most knowledgeable, innovative trainer who is always able to challenge and motivate me. I've been a client for years and do not plan on going anywhere else!

Soroush Bassam 2 years ago

Fantastic experience: Training ground is one of the best in the area. Top notch trainers.

Shelley West 2 years ago

Fantastic experience: I have been training with Camille at Training Ground for several years. She is AMAZING and has changed my fitness life. She keeps it fun and fresh- I’ve never done the same workout twice, and she is so good at crafting workouts that meet my needs but also push me to my limit. The whole team at Training Ground is wonderful, the equipment is top notch and it’s always a pleasure to be there.

Sophie Gharai 2 years ago

Fantastic experience: I've been training at Training Ground for a year now, and have absolutely no regrets. Steve the owner is so kind, and always a smiling face when you come in. My trainer Tony has taught me so much about lifting and strength training in general, and for that I am so grateful. His knowledge and humor make every session something to look forward to. You won't regret joining this gym!

Richard Blair 3 years ago

Fantastic experience: My wife and I have been training at Next Phase for several years now and in 2020 we started personal training with Emma. Having the one-on-one attention really changed the way we workout! Emma comes prepared every week with not one, but two routines. One tailored to my wife's needs as she is pregnant and one for me. We can't say enough about how amazing it has been to workout with her! Thanks Emma!

Suzanne Wrasse 3 years ago

Fantastic experience: I've been a member at Next Phase for almost 3 years and it just keeps getting better! Their trainers are some of the most genuinely kind and spirited people, and the workouts are fun and incredibly effective. The pandemic has changed things drastically, and Next Phase has adapted by doing excellent online workouts and my husband and I are doing some of their virtual training workouts too. We would be lost without this great place and its wonderful people!

Carolyn Judge 3 years ago

Fantastic experience: I trained with Steve immediately prior to deployment with the military. I was extremely happy with my experience. The training was outstanding and I noticed a physical change in only 5 sessions. I was also impressed with the availability/flexibility and professionalism of the staff. I work odd hours and often couldn't commit to sessions until the day of; they were ready and willing to work with my schedule. They also offered challenging group fitness classes free of charge. I have no regret about this investment and would strongly and without hesitation recommend it to anyone at any level of fitness.

Randy Greenberg 3 years ago

Fantastic experience: Positive: Communication , Professionalism , Quality In person, Kat is fabulous! Great workouts and instruction. Classes are really fun. Virtually, the classes with all the instructors have been excellent. The studio is so responsive to questions via text or email. Next Phase is really working hard to deliver fitness during these crazy times.

No Anxiety Prep 3 years ago

Fantastic experience: Positive: Communication , Professionalism , Quality Next Phase has retained its creativity and professionalism in offering awesome outdoor workouts to stay safe during the pandemic. All the coaches are awesome, but Coach Camille really motivates you and makes it easy to modify for injuries. As an athlete, I cannot imagine training anywhere else ever again!

Margot Donohue 3 years ago

Fantastic experience: I am doing the circuit training with Emma and it has been GREAT! She’s thoughtful on the design and the classes are challenging. Emma checks in with me regularly to ensure I am accomplishing my goals. It’s really been an ideal program during Covid and I feel completely safe with her and Next Phase. This community is unlike any other and I could not recommend it more!

Emily Muller 3 years ago

Fantastic experience: It's hard to believe I have been going to Next Phase for *almost* a year—this is coming from someone who gets bored pretty easily and typically hops around gyms. With Next Phase, I am invested. Every class is different and constantly keeps me on my toes. I now go every day and genuinely enjoy my time there. Every coach is amazing — Michael will keep you laughing (gotta work the abs), Radames will have you sweating by the end of a warm up (no mercy-but in a good way), Abby will keep you smiling and motivated (great energy), and Karly is great at breaking things down for you (form is hard sometimes). I could go down the list of amazing qualities for each coach, but I think the best thing about Next Phase is the community they create for the people they train. I am in the best shape of my life because of this gym and have loved watching it evolve— even in a pandemic! Way to go, guys— you stole this ADHD girl's heart.

Samuel Katz 3 years ago

Fantastic experience: I've been a member at Next Phase for about a year and a half. I highly recommend this place for anyone who wants a focused workout paired with the motivation of a group setting. The classes are small so it really feels like you have a personal trainer helping you with your form and keeping your pace while also having the benefits of the communal group setting (which for me is adds to the fun part of working out). The teachers are all great and they have really well adapted to the COVID situation with outdoor classes, virtual options, and spaced out small group training. They also have classes at a really good variety of times. I have a weekly unlimited membership which I use to take between 3-5 classes a week in the evenings with Coach Jessica and it's really helped me with staying in shape and getting stronger and covers all my cardio and strength goals.

Jenna Widmann 3 years ago

Fantastic experience: Next Phase in Bethesda became my way to get through the week, with it's noon classes, fantastic instructors and just amazing playlists blasting. I love the breakout of strength and cardio, and interval exercise. I'm surprised each time I go to class now (as it's been quite a while between each one) when Emma, my fav, remembers me! She is a great coach, athlete and teacher. I recommend Next Phase for anyone wanting to incorporate strength training into their routine, or anyone who has been doing it for years. - Jenna

Lara Harvey 4 years ago

Fantastic experience: I've taken a couple of classes this week at Next Phase through Classpass, with Keren and Andy, and I'm hooked! Their classes and energy are awesome. Go there, prepare to be challenged, find your own pace, push hard and know the experienced instructors will work with you, motivate and make you do each exercise right. This is the ultimate circuit workout with great planning and progressions. And the people in the classes are friendly, push each other and have fun doing it. Highly recommend!

Gabby V 4 years ago

Fantastic experience: One of the best workouts I’ve had in a while. Emma’s class was so much fun, she has a great spirit. Kept the class going I barely noticed an hour go by. The facility is small but the equipment is amazing and up to date. I wonder if they offer gym time to utilize the equipment without being in class..
