My passion for weight-training began the first time I stepped into a gym, as a 10-year-old girl. I knew right away that this was an environment in which I could thrive and reach my full potential, both physically and mentally. Later, as a police officer for the city of Tulare, I began to pursue my other passion, serving the people of my community. Unfortunately, in 2009, my career as a police officer was cut short when I was injured protecting a group of citizens from a violent assault. After two years of attempted rehabilitation, it became clear that I would have to accept a medical retirement from the police department.
While difficult to accept at first, I soon realized that the closing of one door could lead to the opening of another. I had long known that there was a need in the community for a gym that catered more to those who worked non-traditional jobs, who needed access other than "normal" business hours, and who took weight-training as seriously as I do. And so, I combined my two passions, fitness and service to my community, and Grizz's Powerhouse Gym was born.
Grizz's is a 24/7, 365 member-driven, old school gym with a family feel. Grizz's isn't just a place to work out, it is a place to belong. Come by and join our family!
