I found Physiques gym in November of 2020. I was an avid cross-fitter but had never done actual body building. Within 6 weeks of following a meal plan and intense training from Craig and Cara I could see my body being sculpted. The environment is very encouraging with an expectation to always give your absolute best. You are held accountable which will make you achieve your goals. Physiques gym is making me stronger physically and mentally and this is just the beginning of my journey.
Luv Physiques Luv My Bro
I have worked out at Physiques Gym and the intensity of the workouts are great! The family feel is great. Positive people bring positive results . Every time I stepped in the gym I knew I was in good hands with Trainers Cara and Craig. The music is always on point and makes the getting in shape all that much better..
From the first time you step into Physiques you're accepted as part of the group. The expectations are high, but the reward is 100% worth it if you're ready to make a change. The accountability and encouragement from Cara and Craig make me want to push myself and do better every day. Not just physically, although that's a huge part of it, but in every day life too because their guidance applies outside of the gym as well. They say that Physiques Gym makes sense when nothing else does, and it's true. You put in the work, you get the results. This place has been exactly what I was looking for, and I didn't even know how much I needed it until I started. They also say starting is the hardest part. If you're looking for a place that will hold you accountable and do it's best to help you achieve your goals, this gym - the trainers and the family will be ready to help without a doubt.
What's there to say other than from the minute I walked into this place I knew it was different . Something about the atmosphere Had me captivated from the 1st assessment / workout. The hands on and the experience that both coaches hold for over 30 years has played a big part in my fitness development and progress. With noticeable gains and leaning out I get constant compliments and that bouisse's my confidence I would recommend this place to anyone who has been struggling who has wanted to take the next step or has just wanted to go to the next level . This isn't just a gym this is a family this is a tribe and glad to say that I am part of that tribe. P.S Check your ego at the door and let them do their job and you'll get the results you want. Thx coach Craig &Cara.
Physiques has been a game changer for me and my fitness goals. I’ve trained over the past 10 years at various gyms with other trainers however the skills that Craig Tinnelle, Cara Barnes and his son Craig II have put them above the others. The personal training program I have at Physiques is one of the best investments I’ve made in myself. I see and those that know me see the changes in my appearance and level of fitness. At Physiques I feel part of a family not just a member of a gym.
Craig and Cara are awesome! They encourage you to push yourself and you’ll get the best training in your life, plus they’ll help you with nutrition and injury recovery. Don’t be intimidated by the fact that they have a background in bodybuilding (in which they've been very successful) if that’s not your thing, because they train all types of people, so you don’t have to be a hardcore weight trainer or competitive bodybuilder to come here and get results. Group training is great because you get a fantastic workout with like minded people and there is a great sense of community here. Come in a try it!
Great atmosphere to workout with people at all different levels of fitness. Craig and Cara makes sure everyone it getting the best out of a workout.
This gym has the best trainers and the best equipment. Craig and Cara most definitely had a major influence on me when I found them back in 2017. They answered all my questions honestly, and I love that hold nothing back when talking to you about your goals and what it will take go reach them. The workouts leave me sore as hell but also stronger. PG is a must.
I've been going to Physiques Gym for about 4 months now and I have to say this place is everything I was looking for. Cara and Craig are some of the most inspirational people in my life right now. From the moment I walked in the door I could tell everyone in this gym was serious about their goals. Seeing that my trainers are in top shape and practice what they teach to me means they are people I should be learning from. I knew before I settled on a gym that I had to do something different this time. I decided to check out Physiques Gym because of their group training oriented classes. The typical workout at my own pace just wasn't cutting it and I wasn't able to hold myself accountable long enough to see any worth while results. Not only that but not knowing what to do every time I went to workout was holding me back as well. Having an environment like Physiques Gym where there is a group session with a tailored workout is exactly what I was looking for. They've set me up on an excellent meal plan and I've already lost 20 lbs. My strength has gone through the roof and my over all outlook on working out has changed completely. I never realized how much I didn't push myself before or how much I was holding myself back because I thought I couldn't do it. Cara and Craig will push you past your limits safely and teach you how to continue doing so on your own. With all that being said, if you are looking to change your life for the better and you don't mind working for it, this is the place to be. Cara and Craig will push you and you will get better!
Hands down the best training gym in the valley. The owners and staff are top notch, informative, and provided much needed accountability. It’s like having a fit family that cares wholeheartedly about my health and well-being. This is my home away from home.
Doesn’t matter what shape, size,or age you are this place with help you with your goals and teach the right way to do it each step of the way. Physiques has made fitness a fun lifestyle. No one judges, everyone there is for a common goal which makes it a strong community. Go in there with a goal of gaining or losing weight and no doubt in my mind they will make it happen for you, I’ve seem it time over and over again. Keep up the amazing work you guys do over there!
Great little gym for personal training. They are very knowledgeable and really care about what your goals are, and helping you reach them!
Check them out if you want to get to the next level!
I can’t say enough good things about Physiques Gym as you will be able to tell!!! Physiques Gym is more than a gym we are a family! When I came to Physiques I thought I was coming just to exercise, lose some weight, gain some muscle and maybe eat healthier. I have gotten sooo much more than that here! It’s been an entire lifestyle and mindset change for me. I have been at Physique’s for 4 months and have already done what I wanted to do plus gained so much more in the process. I would have never thought I would’ve wanted to come to a gym and gain anything but muscle! Here I have gained self confidence, I’m setting boundaries, I feel so much more relaxed and beautiful, I’m mentally much stronger and many areas of my life have changed. I’ve learned a lot about myself and how strong I actually am and that is the part that you don’t expect or even pay for! Craig and the other trainers are always there to support you! They walk the walk and talk the talk! Look at them!!! 💪🏾🏆🔥Craig believes in you when you may not even believe in yourself! Craig tells you what you need to hear no matter what! Craig is very perceptive as to whether you need to be pushed harder and also if you have something else going on or an injury and need to take a break for a day or two. Sometimes I think he has 10 sets of eyes because he can see everything that needs to be corrected and always makes sure you are doing the exercises properly to prevent injury. Chest up, shoulders back, neck straight, breathe, bend your knees, bend your back leg, open your eyes and arch your back are all words I have not heard from other trainers that I will never forget now that I have trained here. Craig is a coach, teacher, mentor, friend and sooo much more! Another surprise aspect is the friendships I’ve gained with others in group! Everyone is so supportive in group training and your fellow group members will hold you accountable and support you as well. Working in group training has been so rewarding because when you see others pushing themselves it makes you want to push even more! If a group setting is not what you want you can do one on one sessions too. If you prefer to work with a female coach Cara is awesome and the coach for you! In closing, I am telling you you get so much more then the best trainers you have ever worked with! You get personal coaching and you gain in so many other areas of your life. That aspect was a surprise and an awesome bonus and blessing for me at a rough point in my life. You will get pushed to new levels and learn to push yourself to new levels and get results faster and greater than what you ever have anywhere else! I am a Arizona Native and have been to at least 20 gyms in the greater Phoenix area over the last 47 years and Physiques Gym is the best gym in town hands down!!! Craig, Cara and C2 you have definitely changed my life and in the process you are also now changing the lives of the most important people to me my children! Thank you for all that you have done and continue to do! Now everyone reading this get your butt to Physiques Gym today and change your life too!
I came to physiques thinking that I knew how to workout, eat semi-right, and admittedly had some results on my own. I did research online, which led me to Craig Tinnelle at Physiques Gym. My intentions were to see if Craig would write a good workout routine, and a nutritional plan to meet my goals, then I was going to go off on my own... Craig assessed my current level with two personal training sessions (more difficult than any workout that I had ever done) and I quickly found that not only did I know nothing about training and Nutrition, but that Craig is a Mad Scientist, he really knows what he is doing! What I especially appreciate is that Craig listens closely to my goals and tailors the training sessions and my meal plan to maximize results. And all of this with proper form and technique. I have been going to Physiques and training with Craig now for a little over two years and believe it or not I have not done the same workout twice, my body is constantly changing and I am achieving amazing results. I recommend that anyone who wants to achieve some fitness or health goal, and actually be in a great training environment, contact Craig Tinnelle at Physiques Gym in North Phoenix you will not be disappointed.
Hi Im Cari.. I started training with Craig Tinnelle 12 years ago. He trained and prepared me for my National Rollerskating championships .. Years went by and in November of 2012 we reconnected. . By this time I had started competing in women's figure, in bodybuilding shows.. I trained at Physiques Gym for a year, and in 2014 , competed for the first time in women's physique division under the mentoring and coaching of Craig Tinnelle, and received my first trophy... Physiques Gym, has become my second home and the people have become my family. .. Results are guaranteed , and friendships , and support are priceless... Hands down best gym and coaching in the valley.. Cari
I am near 50 and started working out by myself for the first time ever in my life at Lifetime Fitness. I wasn't able to get results but I watched my business partner who was going to Physiques become huge during the same time. So I went to Craig and he was able to get me to add 25 pounds of lean muscle in 6 months. I learned a tremendious amount about my body and what it takes to achieve these results. I feel so much better every day and definately look better! Craig will not only push you to your physical limits but fully educate you along the way. If you want scenery and don't care about results go to Lifetime, If you want results and an education go to Physiques. Oh, and there are no clipboards that the trainer will be holding, many times they are in there working with you.......
Physiques Gym has a special element to it that brings out your inner gym rat! The love and support found in this gym is hard to come by when you are looking for group classes. Every member that attends this gym, are like cheerleaders when you think your mind is about to fail you, those people will uplift you along with all the trainer who are always there to help you through your struggles. I highly recommend this gym To anyone that wants To transform their life for the better!
I can't say enough good things about this gym. Not only have I lost almost 100 pounds but I have gained so much more that can not be measured....like health & confidence. You want something different then do something different! I highly recommend Physiques Gym!
I thought I knew how to train myself, and after my first workout in Physiques, I realized how wrong I was. I am doing things in there that I would never have done by myself and the results show it. Craig is awesome and gives the highest attention to details. So glad someone showed me Physiques!
Physiques gym has changed my life inside and outside of the gym. I walked in physiques gym at the age of 16. When it came to fitness, at the time, this was all new to me. The knowledge you obtain from this gym is priceless. Ive learned more about myself than I ever knew. This gym will push you to your limits, but at the end of the day the results speak for themselves.
Last year I was struggling to come to terms with the death of my son and a breakup with his father. I was depressed and had put on quite a bit of weight. In January 2014, I decided I had to do something about it. A friend told me about Physiques Gym, and I went to visit. Well, it was the start of a positive life change for me. I lost 30 lbs and started to find myself again. I have enjoyed working with Craig (aka the Tinn Mann), and the lovely Cara. I have become a more active person in general, with a much better outlook on life. I look forward to continuing to get the figure I want. Physiques Gym is a great way to change your life - and become a better you!

Great gym and great people! It is open to everyone but they will train you hard. Wish I could've stayed longer but hopefully I'll be back. They have serious bodybuilders here and can also help you with a meal plan so you get the most out of your workout. Thanks for everything!
Great environment, great people, very knowledable and excellent workouts! Highly recommend to people looking to change their lifestyle and get the most out of their workout!
I've been to gyms all over the country and this is definitely one of the best I've come across. The staff is great, the sessions are great, there's an abundance of knowledge and the energy that you're surrounded by while working out is unobtainable anywhere else in the city. Any one of the trainers there will push you to the limit and you will learn something new every single time. I definitely recommend this place to anyone who's looking to get some serious results or wanting to take their physique to the next level. This is not one of those "gyms" that you go to take selfies just to post on social media with hashtag #gymislife...
Craig Tinnelle is one of a kind! His style of training & expertise in fitness and nutrition you will find no where but Physiques Gym. Craig prepared me for the candidate physical agility test (CPAT) and the Fire Academy. I've been weight training for many years and Nothing compares to a training session with Craig! If you're tired of not reaching your fitness goals, go to Physiques Gym and enjoy your transformation.
Love the energy here! Everyone works together to push you to the next level!
You never walk out telling yourself you shouldn't have gone. Always a great day at Physiques.
Sure I could go to others gyms, even workout with other trainers....but my health, my body and true lasting results are worth everything to me....
