About Us

We’re not Like Most Gyms.

Most gyms in Ann Arbor lack the functional training experience and depth of knowledge about training men, women and children that Skip and the other BSI trainers offer. Combined with our strength training and years of functional training experience it’s no wonder our programs are fun, demanding, safe, and NEVER boring!

 

Are you ready to get back in the game?

Are you ready to get back in the game?

There are very few strength and conditioning gyms in Ann Arbor that offer the diverse, innovative, progressive and ever changing, challenging environment at BSI. BSI built its reputation long before the era of CROSSFIT and other well marketed training programs! Skip has been ahead of his time in training for multiple circuit, Olympic lifting, and core training since the mid-80’s! There are so many programs that lack innovation and creativity, it’s easy to get bored with the same predictable workout. Not at BSI!

Don’t let the internet or the latest fitness craze turn you off from being a better, healthier you! We can help you enjoy the process of losing weight. Get started today with your first FREE personal training session!
