“Coach Micela is AWESOME!! Does so much for our kids!!”

Jineane Ford

“I have been in competitive sports my entire life, making the transitions from gymnastics to CrossFit and then olympic lifting, but until now I have never had a coach who has held me to as high, if not a higher standard than I hold myself. Joe provides an unrivaled amount of experience, knowledge, and motivation in the most positive, supportive, and inspiring of environments. ”

Samantha Wright

“Amazing atmosphere, friendly people, and phenomenal coaches! I highly recommend Performance One as your training home!”

Lisa Legarreta

“Great place to work out, especially if you have grown tired of the typical commercial gym scene. Workouts are customized for your goals, and you stay until it is done. I finished school, and needed a hobby to stay sane, so I thought, “Why not weightlifting?” Now I’m addicted.”

Ed Lawrence

“This is a gym that not only encourages physical betterment, but mental fortitude as well. While the workouts are catered to your individual needs, you gain support from those around you, which helps you make strides in your physical condition. If you’d like to become not only fit, but an athlete, talk to Joe today.”
