We are a faith-based health club in which our team’s priority is to ensure each individual member is equipped to fulfill their specific and unique fitness goals. We strive to provide a comfortable, clean, and safe environment that exceeds expectations. We are a club that offers the latest in high-grade fitness equipment, certified personal training, and the most valuable programs around.
Why We’re Different
American Bodyworks Gym at Holly Springs opened in the summer of 2008, and since our opening, we have maintained the same community feel that makes us like a second home to so many of our customers. We don’t just train our clients; we walk through life with them. We strive to create an environment where people of all fitness levels feel safe and comfortable bettering themselves.
We want to be there for you in adversity and triumph. Whether it’s a quick conversation or a full training session, our goal is to offer encouragement and positivity to every person that walks through the door. The fitness industry can be intimidating, and we want to change that perception by offering the most personal experience possible. Our trainers are knowledgeable, fun-loving, and will tailor your nutrition and workouts to your specific goals.
While we want to be there through every step of the process, we realize that busy schedules don’t always allow for business hour visits to the gym – that’s why we’re a key club. Your membership card is your key to the gym that you can use to utilize our equipment 24/7. To maintain a safe environment during our unstaffed hours, we also provide emergency panic buttons and high-tech surveillance. This means fewer excuses and more results!
We are an established gym that has been in business for over a decade, and we have clients that started with us at the very beginning – and you might be the next member of the family!
If you are looking for a family-friendly, safe environment – we’re the gym for you!
Certified Personal Training
My name is Skyelar and I’ve been a trainer for four years! I specialize in functional training with a significant focus on stability and performance, which is adjusted to fit the client’s needs. Getting into the right mindset for your fitness journey can be difficult, but my favorite part about being a trainer is watching the client progress towards their goals despite the difficulties. If I’m not in the gym, you can find me playing football, basketball, and going for hikes every chance I get!
Certified Personal Training
I’m Brinley Harris and I recently got my NASM certification! I am passionate about helping others achieve their personal goals and I most enjoy motivating people to believe they were made for more. There is an abundant life in store for you – but it starts with healthy living. We tend to put limits on ourselves, but I want to help people believe they are limitless even when they feel defeated. I am a strong advocate of healthy nutrition and I work at Juice Plus as well as American Bodyworks. I’m also passionate about mission work and international ministries as I was a missionary in the Dominican Republic for over a year and a half. A few of my favorite things include being around people, trail running with my dog, and rock climbing!
My name is Scott and I’m the owner of American Bodyworks! I’m a widowed dad of two, and after losing my wife to cancer in 2011, I found myself stressed and in terrible physical condition. In 2013, my family and I moved to Woodstock. However, I was significantly overweight, having to take multiple medications for health issues, and overall was extremely unhealthy. I felt terrible all of the time and realized something had to change. I soon joined ABW and started training with Kristin Dawson in November of 2013. Under her guidance, I was able to lose significant weight, clean up my diet, and start making changes to my lifestyle.
I’m happy to say that after one year, I was able to stop taking all medications and have continued to prioritize fitness in my life. Fitness has become an essential component for a satisfied and fulfilled life for me. Having worked in the corporate world for 20+ years, I was delighted when the owner at the time called and offered to sell ABW. Having experienced the benefit of this gym myself, I decided I couldn’t pass up the opportunity. I strive to provide the best possible experience for ABW members, and I hope that my own story will encourage others to make changes that will ultimately improve their quality of life. Feel free to ask me about my story if you see me at the gym!
