Elements are three one-on-one sessions with a coach. Scheduled according to your availability, these sessions are required in order to get you familiar & prepared with the techniques and movements that we do in class. When Elements are completed you can choose to attend Beginner Sessions or Regular Class.
Beginner Sessions will benefit you in the same way as Elements. These will be in a group setting where the techniques & movements will be taught in order to get you familiar & prepared for regular classes. 10 Sessions are required before advancing to regular class. These sessions are offered Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays at 6:00am, 12:30pm and 6:30pm.
This is where the fun takes place and community is formed! The heart of our programming and participation. You will continue the training from what you've learned in the Elements Sessions and/or the Beginner Sessions.
Our 8th Day Kids program is a unique fitness program designed specifically for kids ages 6-12. We will help kids to develop an active & healthy lifestyle that is essential for their wellbeing later.
Just like our adult classes, the kids program will consist of constantly varied, functional movements. Constantly varied meaning, workouts are creative and new, keeping kids from becoming bored. Functional movements are movements that kids use in everyday "play" such as running, jumping, pushing, pulling etc. These type of movements will lead to improved capacity in life and athletics.
8th Day Kids will be taught under the supervision of qualified coaches that will teach kids the proper way to push, pull, run, throw, climb, lift and jump both effectively and safely. Every workout can be scaled to the ability of each individual child in our program.

I've been running, doing triathlons and working out in gyms for about 10 years. This is the first time I have broken through plateaus and experienced real, noticeable results. These guys are great!
Fitness is often sought out yet seldom found. Most people concentrate so much on one aspect of training they miss out on becoming completely fit. At 8th Day Gym the workouts and programming are geared toward achieving total body fitness. Come in and find out how to increase your bench press by doing squats and become a faster marathoner by doing push ups and pull ups. Your results will be your reward.
I have been training at 8th Day for a year now. Never before have I experienced such gains in strength, agility, and stamina. 8th Day has not only become an incredible training facility for me, it is also my community. Everyone supports one another and cheers each other through some REALLY difficult workouts. Come find elite fitness training and the greatest community of athletes in Grand Rapids!
What can I say!! This has been the best training I have gotten involved with! I have always been involved with sports and fitness, I did the triathlon thing, I was bored with workouts and group ex classes...doing the same ol' same ol'. I started at 8th Day this summer and love it. The workouts challenge the full body, have variety and are fun. The people are welcoming, friendly, encouraging and un-intimidating. The coaches are always willing to help and educate.
