YES! If you’re someone who craves individualized attention but also likes the camaraderie of a group, then Physiques Gym is the right fit for you. Our group training is not a one-size-fits-all approach.

You will get the personalized attention you need while still being able to enjoy the energy and motivation of a group setting.

The main difference is pretty straightforward: group training is done with a group of people, while personal training is one-on-one with a trainer. However, at Physiques Gym, our unique style of training allows for our coaches to provide individualized hands-on training even within the group setting.

The size of the group will vary; most groups are between 2 and 10 people.

When you’re working out alongside others who share the same goals, it creates a sense of community that will help you stay on track.

At this time, no. Physiques Gym is a private facility only open for personal training.

 At Physiques Gym, we pride ourselves on being different from any other gym. You won’t find any cookie-cutter workouts or a one-size-fits-all approach here. Our facility is an old school bodybuilding gym with a modern flare. You will be at home whether you’re a fitness junkie or new to the gym scene. Here at Physiques Gym, it’s not just about getting fit — it’s about making fitness your new lifestyle while building a community of like-minded individuals who are all striving for a better, healthier life.

YES! If you’re a beginner and wondering if it’s okay, let me tell you right now that it absolutely is. We all have to start somewhere, and being a beginner is actually a good thing. It means you have room to grow and are free of bad habits.

Remember, everyone was a beginner at one point.

As an experienced lifter, you might feel like you’ve seen it all. You’ve probably tried a lot of different programs and routines, and you’ve gotten to know your body pretty well. But will you still get what you need to take your fitness to the next level at Physiques Gym.

Even if you think you’ve hit your ceiling, there might be new angles and strategies that can help you push past it. Plus, our unique approach to training is great for targeting specific areas of the body or simply mixing up your routine.

You’re not alone in this thought. But the truth is, you don’t need to be in perfect shape before you start. In fact, that’s what Physiques Gym is for!

The personal trainers at Physiques Gym are here to help you achieve your goals, whether you’re starting from scratch or looking to build on your existing fitness.

YES! If you’re looking to compete in a bodybuilding competition, you’ll need to focus on more than just lifting weights and eating right. You need a coach that can help you reach your peak fitness and physique. With a wide variety of training systems, experienced coaches who are also competitive bodybuilders, and nutrition guidance, we will help you to sculpt your body into competition-ready shape.

YES! Craig Tinnelle, owner, and Cara Barnes, general manager, are the only two coaches who work at Physiques Gym. Craig and Cara work together so you will have the benefit of having two coaches with you every step of the way. 

Unlike other programs, you will have two coaches. Craig Tinnelle and Cara Barnes have a combined experience of over 40 years in the fitness and bodybuilding industry and have worked with thousands of people.

You will have the benefit of working with both coaches simultaneously. We are with you every step of the way.

Craig Tinnelle, aka, THE TINNMANN, is a Marine Corp Vet that has been training people professionally for more than 30 years. Craig is a pioneer in the fitness industry and a leader within the fitness community of Phoenix Arizona.

Craig has an undisputable track record of helping people change their lives and his experience will be invaluable to you on your journey.

None. At no time will Physiques Gym ask you to commit to a time frame or a program. We will guide you through every step of your journey but if life takes you in a different direction, for any reason, you will never be locked into a contract.

No! Our philosophy is that your body is our contract. If you are not seeing the results you want, you will stop coming in. We take this commitment to your health very serious and will continue to push you toward your goal. You are never locked into a contract.

No! Training fees are due in advance of training but there are not any additional charges.

Yes! Nutrition is 80% of your success. We will give you guidance and advice on how, when, and what to eat. When the time is right, and this varies depending on the person, we can create a customized meal plan for you.

 Nutrition plans are very specific to the individual. We do not take a one-sized fits all approach to nutrition. Our meal plans are created for the individual based on their body type, lifestyle, occupational demands, goal, and discipline.

The short answer is no, you will not be required to purchase supplements. However, depending on your goal and lifestyle, you may benefit from taking supplements. We will guide on this so you are not alone at the nutrition store trying to figure what to buy or how much to take.

We are open for training in the mornings, 6 days a week.
