Personal Training
Personal trainers are available for all of your personal goals. Whether you are looking to get stronger, learn healthy training habits, lose weight, whatever you need, we have someone who can help you attain all of your goals.

Training Disciplines
Hercules Gym always has and always will specialize in strength training. We have a long history of some of the greatest in powerlifting and bodybuilding walking through our doors. We also have tools for strongman training. But you will find that Hercules is one of the most judgment free environments you will ever encounter. Everyone is here for their own goals, they don't have the time or focus to be judging others. While at the same time, those that are looking to better their training will always find plenty of help and advice if they want it. No one here will need to worry about what others are saying about the weight they lift and we have cardio equipment for those that are just looking to get a little more fit as well.

There is a well established group of powerlifters here. The power group has broken down into several smaller groups including a growing women's only group. Everyone in the power crew is a competitive powerlifter participating in several different federations with a broad spectrum of experience and accomplishments. Anyone interested in powerlifting, brand new or very experienced, will benefit from training with other powerlifters interested in their same goals: getting stronger and lifting more. We are proud to be home to several elite level lifters. Men and women holding records in different federations as well as all time world records. When our lifters do a meet, there are always others there to help and we compete all over the North East. Anyone interested in joining the group is welcome, but this group does not foster anything but competition level form in the main lifts.
