What if, while taking the steps to better your own health, you are also bettering the lives of those in the community who deserve assistance?

Foundation Fitness delivers a technologically advanced approach to customized fitness, while also enhancing the wellness of our community overall. Our expert trainers will we help you achieve your objectives – no matter what level of fitness you’re at. At the same time, we’re striving to improve the health of our armed forces Veterans, as well as our community’s kids who have limited opportunities to elevate their fitness levels. Keep reading to see how we accomplish this lofty goal.



At Foundation Fitness, you’ll experience a transformation physically, and experience satisfaction knowing that you’re giving Veterans and kids with limited financial resources the opportunity to join us. The programs are FREE for these groups and consist of elements that increase physical and emotional wellbeing while developing a sense of community among peers.  We accomplish this in two ways: via a non-profit extension of our organization, we utilize grant money to fund Veterans/Kids memberships; and ½ of a paying member’s fee can go directly to support the Veteran or after school program for kids. It’s a win-win for everyone.

Open to Everyone

Our fitness program exceeds that of any other “gym” out there, and it works for everyone. We utilize exclusive, proprietary fitness technology to garner results – delivering extreme customization for every member that walks through our doors. We craft tailored workouts, offer nutritional guidance, assess detailed reports, then adjust workout regimens as needed. This is elite training for anyone who desires it.

Veterans Program

Many Veterans have injuries – both mental and physical – that prevent them from resuming their day to day lives. 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.


If you make the choice to donate 50% of your monthly membership, you’re be helping support the Veterans and After School Youth Programs.  You will also receive a tax deduction at the end of the year. Feel free to call us at 208.660.9378 for more details on these valuable programs.


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:


The CPro system provides members with individualized training protocols based on their in-depth performance evaluations then monitors their progress to ensure continuous gains. The CPros are set up in stations, 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.


Our fitness program exceeds that of any other “gym” out there, and it works for everyone. We utilize exclusive, proprietary fitness technology to garner results – delivering extreme customization for every member that walks through our doors. We craft tailored workouts, offer nutritional guidance, assess detailed reports, then adjust workout regimens as needed. This is elite training for anyone who desires it.
