Here’s what others are saying:

Joust is an amazing Gym and a great value! Everyone who works out at Joust is supportive and fun to be around. As someone who has never been big into weight lifting, I enjoyed the mental challenge of learning the correct way to perform Olympic movements. The coaches are top tier and take the time to teach all levels of athletes from very beginner to elite. The workouts are well balanced and challenging ranging from strength training to aerobic fitness. I have never left Joust feeling that I did not get something out of the workout in terms of both personal coaching and increased fitness level. Thanks to Ryan and all the coaches at Joust!

I dropped in at Joust on a whim one day. It was my first introduction to Crossfit and I was immediately hooked. The atmosphere is amazing. The coaches are top notch and awesome. The other athletes are welcoming and friendly. It’s truly a place where you feel like you’re part of a family. Sadly, I moved and had to quit. I’ve tried a number of other Crossfit gyms and none even come close to what Joust offers. You will not be disappointed if you give Joust a shot. It’s by far the best I’ve found.

During my brief time in Ann Arbor over the past couple of months, I was working out with the folks at Joust and all I can say is: Awesome! The coaches, the clients, the workouts, all of it. I was super pleased. I’ve been crossfiting for a long time and been a part of many boxes along the way- so I feel comfortable to critique what I experienced. If you are looking to find a great community, look no further than Joust.

I was very skeptical about CrossFit but after trying it for a few days I loved it. The coaches are very good and they really care about your safety and fitness. I took my classes in the evenings with Ryan or Susy – they are great and I bet the other coaches are too! I made very good friends there and felt stronger than ever! Joust not only provides a space for exercising but it’s filled with great vibes and the opportunity to grow in many different ways. I absolutely recommend it!

From the moment I walked in the door, Joust has been an amazing place to workout. I’ll admit, I was a bit nervous at first, but the trainers and community there helped me ease into and feel “comfortable” with the tough workouts. Everyone is very encouraging and pushes each other to be the best athletes. The trainers do an amazing job aiding in the process, focusing on areas to improve, and overall are a great staff to work with. Three years later, 40 pounds less, and amazing friends gained, I couldn’t ask for a better place for fitness in Ann Arbor.

The first time I stepped into Joust Strength + Fitness I had never picked up a weight in my life and felt like I didn’t need to. A friend had asked me to come try out a class and after a year of telling him that weights weren’t for me and I was a cardio girl, I finally agreed to go. The minute I walked through the door I was immediately greeted and sat down with Ryan, the head trainer, and asked to fill out a waiver. I was so nervous for class but the whole group helped me through the warm up and Ryan thoroughly explained the movements and how I could modify them if necessary. The next day I needed help putting on my sports bra but I came back and bought a punch card and as soon as that ran out I became a member.

Joust has been one of the best decisions of my life. I have been there for a little over a year now and couldn’t imagine working out at another gym. I’ve done things that I used to think were impossible and I’ve grown in so many ways as an athlete. The coaches and other athletes aren’t just people I work out with, they’re my friends. I’m so proud and privileged to be a part the Joust community.
