I've been going here for well over a year, 3 times a week. This is a personal training establishment, so Gary or one if his other assistants gives you a focused high energy strength training for 30 intense minutes, flowed by 15 minutes of cardio. He is very intuitive and knows how to push you without risk of injury. Gary is disciplined but compassionate. There is no music playing, no cursing, no cruising. This is a very safe space for women. Lots of positive energy, in the heart of Oakland. Everyone is welcome at God's Gym all ages, races religions and orientations as long as you bring respect for others in the door with you. Some long time patrons are an inspiration to us all. One man started when he was 70, he's still in there 3 times a week at 87. I noticed the payoff when I had to move a few weeks ago, I was hoisting boxes and desks and even doors like it weren't no thing, thanks to my developed core strength. Don't let the name put you off. Everyone who behaves with respect is welcome, no one quoting scripture or proselytizing. But I'm sure if you were to ask, Gary would be willing to share his spirituality with you. To paraphrase Gandhi, if all Christians were like Gary, the whole world would be Christian. ☺️

One of the best 24hrs I've been to, I workout here almost everyday. The new hoist equipment is awesome and they constantly are adding new stuff. I prefer the morning crowd I'm always able to use all the equipment I need. Kids club girls are so good with my 14month old which is super important to me!!

Great place to have focused workouts, being pushed to a new level, while feeling a part of a family from the moment you walk in to the moment you leave. They don't discriminate, I've seen all shapes, sizes, ethnicities workout there. As long as you don't waste time talking instead of working then, all is going to be smooth. I definitely recommend them!!

Legacy. That's what comes to mind when I think of God's Gym. I was honored to work out here and I can say without a doubt it's the best gym I've ever come across.They care about you and treat you like family. If you show up, you will see results quickly! Trust me. They know how to train you to meet your goals and always were always able to work around my injuries. Give it 3 months, you will see big changes. Gary and the family are building a legacy, we need more business like this in our communities. Can't recommend enough, 5 stars!

Life changing. I've trained with pro-trainers in the past & wanted to re-invest with a personal trainer to get back into shape. I was a member at the YMCA down the street & applied to get on with one of their PTs but they kept giving me the run-around & trying to put me with trainers who lacked the experience I was looking for. One night I walked by God's Gym on the way to my car & decided to see what they do. Gary Shields, aka Brother Gary, the founder, gave me a warm welcome. After asking about my goals he introduced me to his son, Gary JR, who has been working with me ever since. This family has amazing heart & their prices are very reasonable (over $100 less than the Y or 24hr fitness trainers) & you get high-quality, focused, personalized training. They are very skilled, educated, fun, & motivational; everything you want in a trainer. The sessions are 30min, focused weight-training, but they welcome you to do extra cardio training in their back room before or after your sessions. I've already slimmed down a lot & am putting on muscle fast. They directly cater your workouts to your specific goals.

Brother Gary's family history & the history of this gym is incredibly rich & inspiring - so much so that they could make a feature film on it. If you take the time to learn about their story, you'll learn that their purpose is to help people of all walks of life reach greatness & health - you don't have to be religious or even believe in a God to workout here & be a believer of this family.

These are the types of small-businesses that people in the community NEED to be supporting because they genuinely care about your health, progress, & truly treat you like you're one of the family.
