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:)

This is a training program that has been running for 10 years and is expanding to a new +6000 square foot facility with state-of-the-art equipment.

This week was our first official testing week of the summer and what a testing week it was! There wasn’t one athlete that didn’t have a personal best! Even though there have been obstacles and changes made bec of the recent pandemic, these athletes continue to work their butts off and continue to improve themselves in all aspects! Stay tuned for highlights!

#StrongBody #StrongMind

A great example of how consistent hard work and dedication truly pays off! Listen to the podcast and you will hear the same message preached to our athletes! Success is a long, hard road; if you have the right mind set and work ethic, it will all pay off in the long run!

From walk-on to big-time performer, Jordan Grove played a key role in back-to-back national titles in Kansas City, and the versatile RB was Northwest's second leading receiver in 2015-2017.

He's our guest on this week's Bearcat Rewind. Check it out!

Ava Carder is an extremely hard working girl that deserves some recognition on her accomplishments! She is someone who you never hear brag, so here’s a well deserved congratulations! As she started, her 3-way total was 200 lbs, but now it is over 400 lbs! Her pro-agility has improved from 5.01 sec to 4.71 sec!
Her standing long jump has went from 79” to 85” and her vertical has improved by over 3”!

Last summer, it was a challenge for Ava to push a empty sled 20 yards and now she adds 115 lbs of extra weight to the sled for her 3 sets of 20 yards! Most important, last spring, in her first indoor track meet she ran a personal best in her 800 meter run. She now shows great confidence, strength, power and speed! What more could an athlete ask for!?

Ava, you are doing an amazing job! Keep up the hard work!

Today marked the 1 year anniversary of starting with us for Owen! To say that he is a completely different athlete than what he was a year ago, both mentally and physically, would be an understatement! To give an idea from a statistical standpoint, Owen has increased his 3-way total from 360 lbs to 645 lbs (Squat from 135 to 300, Bench from 125 to 185, and Clean from 100 to 160), his vertical has increased from 24” to 29.5”, his broad jump has increased from 84” to 105”, and his pro-agility has improved from 4.52 seconds to 4.11 seconds! More importantly, Owen has developed a work ethic and a mentality to push himself beyond his limits that is matched by very few! Owen, congratulations on all of your improvements and all of the improvements yet to come! Your consistency and determination continues to pay off! You should be very proud; keep up the great work and setting an example in the gym for others!

Awesome to see familiar and new faces alike, back in the gym working their butts off! There are only a few spots left available for training; so we are on a first come, first serve basis! Please feel free to comment or share this to anyone that may be in search of a safe, controlled, and clean place to train!

#StrongBody #StrongMind

Just a reminder — How we are keeping things SAFE:

1) Every person has their Temp checked as they arrive!!!
2) Every person washes hands as they arrive
3) Only one person allowed in each Power Rack
4) Hand Sanitizer spread throughout the Gym.
5) Social Distancing staying well below 50 percent of our capacity.
6) EVERY piece of equipment that is used is cleaned and sanitized before the next group is allowed into the gym.
7) There is 30 minutes between every session.
8. There is no acitivity that requires a partner or a spotter
9) As they finish they clean their hands and move on. We clean all the equipment and then we waive in the new group.

This has required us to nearly triple the sessions that we are offering for a similar number of athletes but it is working!! . #Keeping it Safe

The GYM will be closed Memorial Day!! Have a great WEEKEND!!!!!

Quarantine Workout #36 (5/14/20)

#StrongBody #StrongMind

We will begin training May 15th, 2020. The Governor of Iowa has given all of us Rules to follow which we already have in place. She asked that we run only at 50% capacity we plan to hold ours to 40% - We will cap all training sessions to 15 kids.. We will open up more sessions to offer the greatest amount of training time possible... If you are ready to get back into the gym let us know as soon as possible.. Our training spots are filling up fast.. #StrongBody #StrongMind

Rules -

No use of water fountain - bring your own water bottle.

Bring your shoes in for a workout nothing will be allowed to be worn in.

We will waive in all people to come into the building only after the last session has ended and we have cleaned all equipment.

Nobody should be at the gym with a temp of 100.5 or higher. - We soon will have ability to check all people.

Hand disinfectant will be at the gym use it often.

At end of each workout every piece of equipment will be cleaned.

Only 1 person will be allowed on Power Racks at a time. While doing other drills we will maintain 6' distance rules.

There will be sign posted reminding everyone of the required actions.

Our goal is to provide exceptional training but our first concern is to do it as safely as possible. If you have any other suggestions please call me and let me hear your thoughts.
