Our Philosophy

Lift with confidence. Sweat with purpose.

The moment you step into the STF Community, you will be inspired to push a little harder, sweat a little longer, and believe in yourself a little more. With each day, you will lift with more confidence and sweat with purpose alongside a community that’s here to support you – no matter what. Our take on fitness is one that strives for longevity. We don’t use Machines, our bodies are the machine. We prepare you today so that you can do the things that you love tomorrow. While we can’t promise you an increase in quanity of life, we strive to improve the quality of life for our members now and in the future.

Our Classes

FaithFit

Our FaithFit classes are a functional fitness style class. We combine Olympic lifts, HIIT, gymnastics, and cardio all into an hour or less. Classes are challenging yet completely scalable for any level of fitness. No two workouts are the same. Our workouts keep you moving and keep you out of traditional routines that can be difficult to stay motivated in. These group classes are fun and challenging! Our fun and encouraging atmosphere is so unique we let you try your first three classes free!

ST Kids

Kids program is specifically designed for youth and helps them develop a lifelong love of fitness. In a group setting, children and teens participate in fun and engaging workouts that deliver measurable results and prepare them to be well-rounded athletes. We structure our program to incorporate basic body weight movements, conditioning, and basic strength development using functional weightlifting exercises.

BoxFit

BoxFit is a fun twist on Cardio Boxing.  It is a mix of basic boxing strikes and functional body movements.  Each class is about 45 mins or high intensity cardio, followed by 10 to 15 minutes of abs for a full-body cash-out. This is a group style class and all ages, and fitness levels are welcome!

GREG BREWSTER

About Greg

Greg is the owner at Strong Tower Fitness he was first introduced to the functional fitness style of workouts in 2015. Before that, he was a college athlete and an avid traditional lifter. Once he was out of sports he found it difficult to stay motivated by a routine lifting regiment. He started Strong Tower Fitness in 2016 to bring functional fitness and a positive family environment to the Parkersburg area. He enjoys helping others reach their strength and nutrition goals and providing a service that goes beyond working out. He believes that the members and coaches at Strong Tower Fitness drive an addicting atmosphere that radiates positivity, motivation, and constant self-improvement.

SONNY ZICKEFOOSE

About Sonny

He started functional fitness training back in 2012. After spending the majority of his fitness life in a weight room training the every day “glamour” muscles, he started to become less motivated and all around bored with his everyday workout routine. Once he started functional fitness he immediately fell in love with every aspect of it. He started to regain excitement for working out, and going to the gym. Since he has started he has competed at various competitions such as the CrossFit Regionals, Wodapalooza, and local state wide competitions. He is a certified CrossFit level 1 trainer, and carries a passion for helping others reach their fitness goals through functional fitness. Strong Tower Fitness has given him the platform to be able to help others with their fitness goals, while being surrounded by other coaches and members who create a supportive environment for everyone.

He views STF as more than a gym but a big family with an addictive atmosphere. He enjoys seeing members getting stronger and improving. He is excited to see what the future holds looks forward to helping new and current members alike.

What People Are Saying

Today will be five straight days of attendance to strong tower fitness. I am sore from knees to neck and earlier in the week I found the most basic daily tasks inflicted more pain on my already aching muscles. That being said, I love it. I’ve spent the last 2 years losing 85 pounds and had come to a stand still with fitness. Nothing seemed to be making a difference. The mixture of workouts combined with a knowledgeable trainer has pushed me to new areas of fitness in which I can feel the results. In addition, I’m not just being told what to do, the trainer lives the lifestyle. He offers encouragement without the “fluff” and appears to genuinely have the fitness goals of the clients in mind. It may not be “easy”, but the worthwhile things rarely are. I don’t believe have have attended a day in which I have not heard someone praising God or giving him the glory in their lives. Looking forward to where this will take me, both physically and spiritually

Delbert Starcher

Thanking God for this gym and what it represents! What a testimony when you can send your boys to the gym and the trainers/ owners there help them draw closer to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ . Tyler said when he was trying to hold himself up on the rope , and his flesh was screaming pain and defeat, he closed his eyes and thought about how Jesus must of felt as He hung on the cross for him❤️ and that’s where he got his strength to keep going Philippines 4:13 Thank you for an atmosphere that is not of this world Strong Tower ! May God Bless you!

Rebecca Jay Ewing

I have been wanting to improve my physical fitness and health for years. It’s really easy to say, “I need to do this,” but it’s a different matter entirely to do it. The staff at Strong Tower Fitness are knowledgeable and committed to helping you reach your goals. Plus, they have a community of mutually supportive members. It’s not possible to undo 35 years of neglect and indifference overnight, but I have zero doubt that I will achieve my health and fitness goals, because of the trust and rapport I have with the people who created Strong Tower Fitness. If you’re looking for a good gym, Strong Tower Fitness is the place to be.

Rob Kerns

Many thanks to Tate and Greg at Strong Tower Fitness! Two awesome guys who were encouraging and supportive! The box is clean, organized, and well stocked with great equipment! A great place to CrossFit in the Parkersburg area!

Martha Lytle Smith

I’ve been going to Strong Tower for a few months now and absolutely love it. Tate and Greg have a wealth of knowledge to share. It is a very family like environment with people encouraging and motivating each other. I was worried when I first though about joining because I was 350 pounds and extremely out of shape, but there are modifications for just about everything to allow you to do what you can. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great environment to improve their fitness level.

Mike Parkhurst Jr

Absolutely love it. A new lifestyle with encouraging knowledgeable staff

Blaine Ritchie

An awesome gym. I love hitting the weights and always have, but this gym is so motivating, it makes you not want to stop. Best gym I have ever been too.

Justin Bock

I can’t say enough good stuff about this Box. Truly blessed to have found this place and to have met the wonderful people there. Great family environment. Extremely clean. Wonderful atmosphere. Tate is a very knowledgeable coach with great coaching tips and directions. It really is a special place. Thank you Tate and Greg for being so cool and having a great place to come workout and meet new friends. You should both be very proud of your hard work you have done and continue to do to create such a great Box

Samantha Clements

STF is a box that everyday you are welcomed by coaches/ friends that truly care about you and your fitness.Great coaching and thanks to Tate and Brewster whom are always supportive and encouraging and with their knowledge I have received valuable pointers and instruction for form, technique and much more. They have created a facility where you feel really connected and is motivating and fun. STF has a atmosphere that makes this box feel like a giant family that you can just hang out with after a WOD. They will push you to do your best, but rein you in when you need it. This box is amazing and I have nothing but good things to say!! You feel at home every single time you walk through the door. The owners work to ensure that we have the best equipment and a awesome place to train whether you’re looking to start your journey to better your fitness or train for your next competition.

Jolene Taylor

Love this place and the gains I’ve made in such a short time. I’m a runner and new to CrossFit. I was intimidated at first, but Tate does a great job at scaling the workouts and keeping it safe and doable. I love that the workouts are always different, never boring and has challenged me physically in a way that I haven’t been before. Everyone is so positive and encouraging, and I’ve made some really great new friends. The atmosphere is so welcoming and I love that it’s a faith based place, you walk away feeling blessed and refreshed. Thank you Tate and Greg for working so hard and providing such a cool and clean place to come in and get a great workout

Misty Roberts

This is a well-organized, clean gym with professional and knowledgeable staff. The workouts will leave you exhausted and are easily modified to suit your fitness level no matter if you’re a beginner or have been working out for years.

Michael Ritchie

Great gym! Very clean.. extremely friendly people and great environment. Top notch experience all around!

Danijel Velicki

Tate Linder and myself go way back, with that in mind I approached him about a lifting routine. He came up with an 8 week program for me almost immediately. I’m on my 8th week and I’ve increased my bench press alone by 30lbs…. The guy not only knows what he is talking about but he is very thorough with his explanations and the program that he will develop for you. Highly recommend you ask him for advice! You can’t go wrong!

4 years! Congratulations Strong Tower!
Special congratulations to Greg Brewster) Greg has worked extremely hard to build an absolutely amazing community.
Let me say I can’t believe it’s been 4 years since I walked through those doors! It’s been amazing and rewarding. I have made some life changing relationships with people here. It's more than a workout and a gym for me, It's my happy place, and my family! A part of my everyday world. If you know me, u know I like to push my limits with physical challenges, I like structure, consistency and competition. This family has always provided me this
guidance and has allowed me to be better in all areas of life. A community and friendship that continue to make lives better outside the gym through the time we spend in the gym.
When I joined I not only gained a gym membership but I gained a family and that’s pretty awesome! Congrats and many years to follow!

I joined Strong Tower Fitness in January and let me tell you it’s one of the best things I’ve ever done! I walked through the doors not knowing anything about functional fitness and the coaches made me feel completely at ease. No intimidation at STF, only support and motivation! If you’ve ever considered a CrossFit style gym I highly recommend STF.... See MoreSee Less

I’m 36 years old and for what seems like 20 of those 36 years I have tried to be the kind of person who takes care of my health. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve made a commitment to a plan to only quit weeks later. That all changed in October 2019 when I joined Strong Tower Fitness. After that first week I discovered the reason why all my attempts had failed and why this time would be different. It was the community! Everyday at 5:30am I walked into a room full of people that became family. A family that pushed me to be the best I could be everyday. 8 months later and I feel healthier than I have ever felt in my life. Saturday I got to stand alongside incredible like minded people as we celebrated the gyms four year anniversary. Four years of making people better through community, incredible coaches, and a vision to inspire greatness one rep at a time. I’m personally inviting you to give it a chance with me and I’m believing you’ll be standing beside me next year as we celebrate year number five.... See MoreSee Less

This place is the BEST! They are very kid friendly! They help kids learn the right way to exercise. The safe way to become fit. They encourage kids the entire time. They high five them when they accomplish a goal! They are just the best. I can’t say enough nice things about this place! Olesya did CrossFit on Tuesday’s and Thursday and boxing on Saturdays this summer when we were on a break from jump rope. She has gotten so much stronger. She continues to go whenever we don’t have jump rope practice. She loves the boxing 🥊! It helps her to take out her frustrations from the week! They are THE BEST! Come join us one night to see for yourself. You won’t be disappointed! $5/class for CrossFit and $10/boxing class!... See MoreSee Less

From the first class I was hooked! Every trainer is kind and knowledgeable, and all the workouts are intense, yet can be modified to fit your level of fitness. I’m the type of person that needs instructions repeated a few times before I get it! Everyone is so kind and patient, from the trainers to the members. There’s no judgment at STF. Everyone is like family. I don’t think you can find another gym that would let you try three full workouts for free before you join. I highly recommend Strong Tower Fitness.... See MoreSee Less

Tate and Greg,

Happy Anniversary! It's hard to believe that the kids and I have been with you two for over a year!

I do want to thank you for starting up Strong Tower Fitness, it has been a blessing to us. It has given all of us an opportunity to improve ourselves physically, mentally and spiritually. It is a wonderful environment, and it is so cool that I have a place to bring my teenagers! Life can be challenging and this is a great outlet for all of us...

I like several things...

Individual attention for improving movements
Family atmosphere....no harsh words
Introductions of new members
Accessory workouts! Great addition! I need extra to continue to improve and having set things to do really works well for me.
Being comfortable from the start....I was not a 'cross fitter', but you both work with me, and my kids, to accommodate our skill levels.
Showing the modifications for different exercises
Encouragement during workouts
Different workouts each day
Bible study

So, this Thanksgiving, I was able to run the Turkey Trot....a big accomplishment for me! It may not seem like a lot to some, but for me it was. Never thought I would do that, but you have given me enough confidence to try....

Know that what you both are doing is great! You are making a positive impact on people and their well being. We have a wonderful group of people and that is continuing to expand.

I thank you for your efforts to lead us and to manage Strong Tower!!! Keep up the great work! We are blessed to have both of you! 🙂

Well.. I haven't done crossfit for about 8 years.. I'm moving back to the area and my mom has been there several times..... so she geared me up for the noon wod.
