Seriously Strong Training is new to St. Petersburg, FL, and so am I.

Whenever I’m new to a city like St. Pete I find myself wondering where the best gyms are.

Route one is to google “st. pete gyms”, or “gyms in st. pete” and then visit the results one-by-one, reading reviews, comparing amenities, and finally visiting them.

Route two is to find locals in social hot spots like Grassroots Kava House or Station House St. Pete where fitness addicts hang out and ask them for recommendations.

Route three, the best route, is to read a blog post written by somebody (me) who has already done routes one & two for you.

The gyms on this list are “traditional” gyms in the sense that they offer monthly memberships for solo workouts. I didn’t include St. Pete CrossFit gyms on this list. You won’t find OrangeTheory Fitness Downtown St. Petersburg here either. These are gyms with barbells, resistance machines, and dumbbells for you to use in solo workouts.

I’ve included all the pertinent information you need to narrow down the list of places that fit your needs based on price, location, amenities, and given you my thoughts on the gym.

If you have any corrections, differing opinions, or just found this list useful leave us a comment below and share the article!

Keith was an All-State wrestler in high school and in 2007 hung up his singlet to attend Florida State University to pursue a B.S. in business management. He wasn't sure what industry he wanted to be involved in at the time, but soon realized after graduating in 2011 that fitness was the ever-constant activity in his life. Keith began studying to become a personal trainer and in 2013 earned the National Strength and Conditioning Association's Personal Trainer certification. After a short stint as a big box gym trainer he realized he wanted to bring something different to Tallahassee. Keith competes in Powerlifting, Olympic Weightlifting, and Crossfit.
