         ACCOUNTABILITY IS CRUCIAL TO HAVE SUSTAINED RESULTS AND PRODUCE REAL LIFESTYLE CHANGES We do not offer an “Open Gym…One Size fits All….Figure it out yourself.”  type Membership, instead we take the simple philosophy that we are all individuals. With specific requirements, goals, situations, time frames and we all want to be as efficient with our time and efforts as possible. Our Members desire to have an experienced professional create, manage, instruct / teach, motivate and oversee their programs all while maintaining a fair reasonable cost. Its the Key to their long term sustained success. We do an extensive initial evaluation / interview to determine your specific goals, workout schedule, previous injury, motivational road blocks, nutritional concerns, medications and physical limitations. This evaluation includes a full body composition scan, FMS flexibility test, and agility benchmarks. This information is then put into a workout built especially for you. We are there every step of the way with a skilled trainer on the floor to insure you are doing your workouts correctly and safely. Trainers are there to coach, motivate, help hold you accountable and oversee every workout. We provide you with all this at a very affordable investment using state of the art equipment in an ADULT ONLY environment (teens on up) At Foundation Fitness we are serious about your success and also perform another evaluation about every 90 days to verify improvement and allow you to voice any concerns or workout routine modifications needed.

The program offers state of the art equipment and software systems that offer a customized workout for each individual. Paired with a personal trainer for each work out, veterans receive a comprehensive program that meets both their physical and emotional needs.

Youth Program

The Youth program is designed to promote health, fitness, and knowledge. It encourages sustainable lifestyle changes through a network of volunteer mentors who are passionate about improving adolescent health. The program also addresses high school athletes, giving them an opportunity to train expertly when their sport is off-season. Our approach has been developed with input from registered nurses, dietitians, and physicians in Kootenai County.


To sponsor our Youth Athlete or Veterans program, or to donate to our non-profit foundations, please call us at 208-660-9378. Your donation will be tax deductible.



The Foundation Fitness program, from a technical standpoint, far exceeds that of any other “gym” out there. We utilize exclusive, proprietary fitness technology to garner results – it’s a platform that delivers extreme customization for every member that walks through our doors. We craft tailored workouts, assess detailed reports, then adjust workout regimens as needed. Here is an overview of our specific offerings:


All Stations provide members with individualized training protocols based on their in-depth performance evaluations then monitors their progress to ensure continuous gains. The Stations are set up rows, including all of the equipment necessary for an effective training session. These stations can be reserved by members on our online scheduling system. Our Performance Specialist will provide coaching and guidance through each session.


Our kiosks offer a structured workout updated daily, based on the common goals of our clientele and adhering to the successful methodology and program design of Foundation Fitness.  The Kiosk system provides participants with a video demonstration along with coaching cues for each exercise, acting as an assistant to the Performance Specialist providing guidance on-site during training sessions.


Foundation Fitness provides sports performance training for youth, high school, college and professional athletes using the methodology powered by our partners at EXOS (formerly Athletes’ Performance).  This system has been tested and proven successful by countless NFL, MLB, MLS, Navy Seals and other high level sports and tactical athletes.


Understanding the importance of nutrition produces invaluably healthy habits. The path to success isn’t about deprivation, but about being proactive with your health by combining nutrition and exercise for maximum results. Here, food is seen as a way to fuel your body for optimal energy and production, not as a way of dealing with stress or curbing emotions. Our Nutrition consultants also offer an online program, with all plans, recommendations, and correspondence happening via email.


Rehabilitation can help restore you to peak condition, as well as prepare you to continually enhance your performance and reduces the risk of repeated injury. We do this through pillar strength, movement prep, and regeneration. These systems focus on four key areas: Mindset, Nutrition, Movement, and Recovery. Our holistic approach helps you work on certain muscles and movements to return them to athletic function, or everyday life function.
