 “David’s passion and vision are going to make Lion’s Pride Wellness the premier training location in Cincinnati. The space is amazing! I’m impressed!”

– Jim Malone
Strength Coach, Pittsburgh Pirates

“David’s patience, expertise and positive attitude have not only helped me physically but mentally. Since joining, I have hit PRs on every lift. I went from being afraid of attempting big weights to now lifting weights that I never thought possible.”

– Morgan Spare
Original Barbell Club Member

I wanted something more permanent and more meaningful than a fitness class. What I really want is to understand and be connected to my body and ultimately learn what I’m really capable of. Lion’s Pride is teaching me HOW to get there. The coaches’ patience, expertise and attention to detail have helped me not only massively improve the quality and consistency of my lifts, but also my confidence and overall wellness, helping me teach my body to work as a cohesive unit. I leave the gym feeling accomplished—not just from a good workout, but also because I get to be part of a gym culture whose values and goals align with mine: wellness, kindness, and hard work. So excited to see what comes next!”
