What we're about

The Ark is a strength and conditioning facility and cultural space. Our members workout safely in a group class environment under the supervision of a highly qualified coach.

 

strength and conditioning

Our Strength and Conditioning classes are the the backbone of our training hall. Here, you will learn high-skill movements, increase your quality of life, and make some friends in the process.

Whether you want to get in shape, lose weight, or become a stronger, more capable person, The Ark is where you will continue your fitness journey.

Olympic Weightlifting

Our weightlifting club, Gainesville Barbell, is the largest and most seasoned club in North Central Florida, whose coaches have more experience in the sport of weightlifting than any other gym in the region. 

Our training hall is a unique cultural space, where the sport of weightlifting lives like it did 50 years ago, minus the metal weights.

RAISING THE YOUTH

We are Gainesville's only not-for-profit gym. We believe that high-quality fitness education should be available to everyone, regardless of their status in society.

We provide free instruction for youth who qualify for free or reduced lunch. UF and Santa Fe students enjoy reduced cost memberships, and our outdoor fitness park is free and open to the public.

All prospective members of The Ark must schedule a Free Interview and Assessment before joining.

This is so we can assess your movement quality, health-markers, and find out what you hope to achieve at The Ark. Once we've conducted the interview and comprehensive assessment, we'll be better able to recommend a program that matches your interests and goals. Interviews must be scheduled 24 hours in advance.
