Neighbor Spotlight: Crush Your Fitness Goals with WillPower Gym

Trainer and client at Willpower Gym

At Dwell 2nd Street, our goal is to create a community where everyone can live their happiest and healthiest lives. That’s why we’re excited to introduce our neighbors at WillPower Gym, who are currently providing virtual daily workouts for our community members to stay active during this time.

 We spoke to owner and head trainer Will Mac, who describes WillPower as “a group exercise, high-energy strength and conditioning program.” He opened the gym with his wife Abby Mac, who also works as one of the gym’s trainers. 

When asked about the difficulty of continuing fitness training during COVID-19, Mac noted that “quarantine has allowed us to take a step back and reevaluate our business.” They currently stream live workouts 5 days a week, and once it’s finally safe to be back, they’ll be expanding their programs and community with yoga sessions.

Their everyday classes feature a blend of strength, HIIT, cardio, and, of course, great music that gets you ready to train. Depending on the class, you could be working with a wide variety of equipment from dumbbells to resistance bands to jump ropes.

There’s a lot going on at WillPower, but don’t let that intimidate you! This gym is all about empowerment and positivity. Mac believes his role as a trainer is to give you the confidence you need to achieve your goals, so classes focus on encouragement rather than competition.

As they reopen in August, WillPower will be enforcing some rules to ensure athlete safety — including wearing masks upon entry, required temperature checks, and no shared equipment . Locker room usage and towel service will be suspended for the time being, but features like their touchless water fountain will remain to help you stay safe and hydrated.

Despite the unprecedented circumstances, the folks at WillPower are staying on their toes and adapting to the changing environment. You can be sure to expect the same quality studio experience that our community knows and loves with every virtual session. If you’re ready to finally meet your fitness goals, start your 7-day virtual trial with some of the friendliest instructors in our neighborhood!
