Our Story

Mitten Fitness was born out of a barn to help a small group of people in the Dexter Community get in the best shape of their lives. It did not take long for the word to get out that Mitten Fitness was open and changing people’s lives. Not long after getting the word out, the barn became flooded with athletes calling themselves “The Barn Rats”. We needed more space to allow for the growth of Mitten Fitness’ amazing community. We now operate in downtown Dexter, MI and love providing the community with a great place to train with a great coaching staff.

Our mission is to provide the community with a facility for a lifelong fitness journey that is forged by people that want to work out hard, have fun, and achieve results; in a safe, diverse, and family oriented environment. We love the community of Dexter and look forward to many years of forging lifelong fitness in the community.

The best nutrition education hands down. Whether your goal is to lose 100 pounds of fat or put on 30 pounds of muscle. Our nutrition guidance guarantees results.

In a year and two months time or so, I've improved in my Olympic lifts in both weight moved and form. I'm able to do strict handstands and during The Open, I got my first string of bar muscle ups. This is all thanks to the coaches and members of Mitten Fitness!

Mitten Fitness has changed my life! The incredible coaching staff sets this place miles above any other gym I've tried. I've changed my body composition, gotten off anxiety meds, and met a fantastic group of lifelong friends. Living proof that "regular people" do can be fit too!
