In 2005 director Zack Snyder and assistant stunt coordinator Damon Caro contacted Mark Twight to train the cast and stunt crew for the movie "300". The results of our training and dietary guidance established a standard for physique in Hollywood films that had not been previously achieved on such a large scale. We transformed 30-35 guys into ripped on-screen warriors who were strong and physically capable off-camera. We operated by the maxim that, "Appearance is the consequence of fitness," so our first goal was to achieve genuine physical capacity and let the aesthetic derive from that. It worked. It showed. And Hollywood physique has not been the same since.

Gym Jones was not conceived as a means to make money, but rather as an expression of an ideal. We like our small club. We like that the game is locked. Not to say that we don't recognize the risk of stagnation, and the tendency for closed cultures to buy their own hype. Evolution is inherent to our ideal. We welcome clients and teach seminars not only as a means to educate, but to also learn. When we teach, we grow ourselves.
Training with us will change your life. Few can make the commitment. We get it. Somewhere between digging into the website and sweating on our floor is a concept not generally found in our vocabulary: compromise.
The Gym Jones website is a beacon. We set a hilltop fire to signal a different way, and assure the like-minded that they're not alone. We hope you see our light, and we hope you'll answer the call.
