Forever Strong Training Center

Forever Strong Training Center


This is great place to send your athletes! We make the drive from Waukee and we've never thought twice about looking for a place closer. The dedication Jeff and Dakota put towards the kids is amazing. They encourage them to be better stronger, mentally tough athletes. They do a great job focusing on correct form to prevent injuries and provide a fun environment for the kids to be in. I would highly recommend checking Forever Strong out, you won't be disappointed.
Jeff Grove has done an amazing job for Sam and the ADM Volleyball team!! Tremendous improvement in strength and vertical!
Payton had so much fun learning tonight. Thanks for your time. It's refreshing to work with someone who has such a passion for this training.
Back where it all began tonight. Back before the current gym, back before BBJ, back when it was just a couple kids and Jeff in an unfinished basement at the end of gravel lane. That one summer changed my life forever. It elevated and opened up my strength/ athletic ability. Not only did that one summer open up doors to and bring me to a new level of athleticism, but it helped me grow up a little bit too. I would work in the morning, baseball in the afternoon (and night), and workout Tuesday/Thursday nights and Saturday/Sunday mornings. So learning time management and doing the "right things" got put at the top of my list of summer things to do. It was tough, but well worth it. Jeff demanded the most from you and never let you cut corners to make a lift or movement easier for you. He taught us the right way, the right technique. I've used those skills and teaching techniques from collegiate sports, throughout my military career, and now that I coach, to my athletes as well. I encourage student athletes and adults to take advantage of the wealth of knowledge and true spirit of seeing you achieve your goals and grow. It's been 13 years since I had Jeff Grove leading my workout and tonight it brought back those memories with Jeff and Rocky and of that one summer that helped carve and shape my life Forever.... #foreverstrong

For the past few years I have been lifting with Jeff. He has taught me so much about weightlifting and myself. He has trained me to work hard and break through barriers that tested my strength and will. With the new gym, Jeff has an even bigger set of tools he can use to develop the athletes that work with him. If you or your child are pondering going to work out at Forever Strong - do it, you won't regret it.
Well, it's been a great summer training out at the new gym. I feel it has been a huge advantage for me to be able to workout at Forever Strong, although I started there when it was still BBJ. Now, Jeff has an even greater amount of "torture" devices (I think he calls excercise) that I was able to utilize. In all honesty though, that's not what makes Forever Strong Training Center great. There are very few people I know as passionate about and as fully invested in what they do as Jeff Grove. In a way, your goals and aspiriations become his goals and aspirations. I can say, without a doubt, he has done everything in his power to help me. Constantly learning and improving to benefit the people he trains. That is what makes Forever Strong great. I remember many days going into the gym and not wanting to be there and he still found a way to get the best out of me. Or on my best days finding ways to push me even further. And for that I can't thank Jeff and Forever Strong enough.
Fantastic workout last night!!! This place is awesome:)

Becoming a better athlete is starting to become a family affair.... Here’s just a few of the siblings bettering themselves together each and every day they walk through those doors! Keep up the great work!

Reteaching poor technique is much more difficult than teaching proper technique from the beginning! Many of our posts highlight the accomplishments and feats of strength of many of our athletes, but just as important (if not more important) is the progression of our younger athletes with their movement patterns! Before any athlete is allowed to be loaded up on any kind of movement/exercise, they have to master said movement/exercise properly first to ensure their safety and development! These young athletes are a prime example of how patience and practice are key in learning athletic movements and resistance training techniques! They are developing a strong foundation for the future years of training ahead of them! Great job to all of our young athletes for taking the time to learn the right way to train!

#StrongBody #StrongMind


Ben Grife is one of our younger athletes who had a big weekend! Ben had a successful tournament excelling in the skills training and made the All Tournament team in his age division! This was in Florida playing against some very talented opponents. Great job Ben!!!


Check out the new Cardio Equipment!!!! Speed Treadmills, Assault Bikes, and Rowers.


It’s always awesome to see when hard work pays off and you reach goals that you had set weeks and maybe even months ago! Many of our athletes hit all new personal bests our last testing week and many hit big time milestones in their training! Please help us in congratulating the new additions to the 500 lb club: Cael S, Brock R, Brylee P, Brayden R, Ella S, and Brynn B!

Congratulations! Keep grinding and putting in the work, and you will continue to crush the goals you have set before you!
