This place has spiraled a complete transformation in my life. Everyone who really knows me, is aware I struggle with long term commitments. I’m a slave to food, addicted to sodas (bad), anything with sugar and cigarettes. Out of all those things, I’ve realized over the past 6 weeks, my biggest addiction has always been excuses! For the first time in my life I have come to terms with the fact that there really is no such thing as a good excuse. You either want it or you don’t. There’s no in between. I always thought “working out” meant you have to give up things that you love and be miserable. In reality you gain more than you could ever actually give up. You gain confidence, inner strength (just as much as outer!), you learn discipline and self control, you learn that YOU are in charge of YOU and don’t have to let anything have a grip on your life. Those are the things that satisfy you to your core!
Other than how I feel inside and out about myself, my greatest joy in all this is watching how much pride my kids are taking in watching their mom transform from the inside out. They automatically make healthier choices when picking out meals and snacks and they want me to write out workouts that work for them at home!
Thank you Gene Click for having a place where people can come and change their lives for the better! One of my biggest struggles/”excuses” has always been worrying about working out in front of people, starting at the bottom while everyone else is already “there”. The atmosphere is so welcoming and comfortable. You’re met where you are!
I’ve started a journey that will last the rest of my life!
I have been looking for a gym where I can belong for several years. At FF you have a team beside you, that motivate and encourage you to move forward and strive for more! Gene and Emily put their hearts into this gym and it shows!

Loving Fit Factory after only being there a couple of weeks! I have never loved going to the gym but I can truly tell that their goal is to help me achieve the goals I have set for myself! I am thankful for the encouragement during my workouts; it motivates me to always want to come back for the next thing!

No one knows fitness better than Gene. Not only does he work hard to help every client reach their goals, but he truly cares about every person that walks into Fit Factory. He is also SO great with kids.

After vowing NEVER to join a gym again, I came with a friend to check out Fit Factory. I was just going along, never planned on joining. Gene’s enthusiasm however was infectious! He got me pumped up, and said, just come and try it for a week and see what you think. Well that week was back in November of 2015. One week and I was hooked. I LOVE, let me reiterate, LOVE Fit Factory and the people there. I can say I have a gym family. Everyone is so positive and uplifting, I have never experienced anything like it. Gene truly has a gift and a wonderful place here. So glad I went to check it out, because it turned out to be one of the best and most therapeutic things for me! Love my Fit Factory Family!

I have been a client of Gene Click and the Fit Factory for 6 years. I am a 56 year old woman who tries to keep up with the youngsters! Fit Factory allows me to at least keep them in sight… Lol. I can’t imagine working out anywhere else!!!!

I love Fit Factory! I live in Jefferson Co. And I work in Knoxville but I chose this gym because it’s the best I’ve been to. Gene never does the same routine twice wether it’s Max Fit or Kick Train it’s always something different. The people are encouraging and always pushing to do your best. I’m so thankful to be a part of the Fit Factory family.

I love my gym!! Fit Factory is an incredible place. It’s so great to go to a gym with real people with real goals. We are all trying to be healthy and become the best versions of ourselves that we can be. There’s something for everyone, no matter your physical ability or level. It’s a hard working gym with great instructors/coaches that care about each person there. It’s a place where you can condition your mind, body and spirit!
Been to many gyms over the years and this one is the real deal. Here you will find encouragement, motivation, and a style of training that guarantees results. No matter what level of fitness you are at now you will find what you need here.
Gene is such a great instructor to learn from and he has so much to teach, not only in bjj but also in mma. Though bjj is a lot of fun to learn and Gene will definitely make you good at it, I feel one of the best perks of going to his classes regularly is the fact that his character inevitably rubs off on you. This is a great thing because life outside of the gym just simply goes better for you, thanks to his great influence.
To be a winner, you have to be around a winner and learn from a winner. When you go to his gym you find yourself surrounded by great people (his students-“all winners”)
P.S. Everyone that trains there are super careful and welcoming to the new students and visitors.

Coming up on one year at Fit Factory. It’s not your average gym. Very family focused with lots of class offerings. Many outside excursions as a group. They have given me the strength to try new things like kickboxing, mud runs, Spartan races. Very worth it, especially if you don’t have a lot of time. Even if I only make it to two hour long class a week. I feel better and eat better.

Fit factory is, by far, the best gym I’ve ever been a part of. You become family, with a coach and friends supporting you along your fitness path. Love it!
I couldn’t ask for a better place to workout/train, not only for me, but for my family too. The atmosphere is amazing and the friendships and support is unmatched. So nice to know this isn’t a temporary fix, it’s a lifestyle, it’s family, it’s what I was looking for! !
I love the 5 a.m. workout class! It’s perfect for me, because I don’t have time in the evenings to get in a workout. Emily is fantastic, and everyone in the class is so encouraging! Awesome place!
– Shannon Phipps
Just started my first week here, and it’s by far the greatest gym experience I’ve ever had. This a a team and a family that I want to be a part of for a long time! Nothing like it around here! My goals, that I have been struggling to meet for 5 years, will be accomplished here!

You will not find a more all around facility than the Fit Factory. All ages are welcome to come and learn from 3&4 year olds learning the basics of martial arts to training at the highest level. Also if you just want to get a good workout in or want to train for a Spartan race, this is where you want to be!
I stick to the Kicktrain classes and it’s intense! Excellent workout for an hour straight and the exercises are always different so your body never gets used to it. Positive, encouraging environment. Great coaching by Gene. And he even joins in every class.
– Ryan Britt
Come let our Fit Factory family, Gene Click, and Emily Monroe Click help you reach your goals! You get your first week free. Even if you have never been in a gym before they will modify the programs for you to help maximize success. What are you waiting for if I can do it you can too!
2017 Reflection: looking at the girl on the left I see I was miserable and slowly killing myself. I was 35 years old and couldn’t walk from my house to my truck without being out of breath. This past year I haven’t lost as much weight as I would have like but I’m almost 100 pounds down in a year and a half so that’s not to bad and definitely better then I was. But the strength and energy that I have gained this past year, thanks to hard work, the grace of God and my amazing trainers (Emily and Gene) at Fit Factory. I can’t wait for 2018! I’m ready to step up my game and get in the best shape of my life!
Ok…..here it goes! I have been on this battle with my weight and health for my entire life. I honestly cannot remember a time when i wasn’t struggling…even when i was a kid. After an extremely difficult year, I set a goal for myself….to lose 30 pounds before I turned 30 on Nov. 30th. So, from August until now, I have been working toward this goal with a support system like no other! With my amazing family, friends, trainer, coaches, my THRIVE nutrition plan and a few new adventures……i was able to meet my goal! I may not be in my 20s anymore, but i feel better than i ever have, and cannot wait to see what’s next!
Since 2005 when breast cancer returned to my Mom for the 2nd time, thru the shock of her illness and her passing in Oct 2006 I became depressed and grief stricken. Not paying attention to me or my health. I knew I was sinking deep but I really didn’t care. I was totally NOT motivated to do anything. The the FitFactory announced a 90 day Extreme Challenge. I joined in March of 07 and recieved the courage and motivation that I secretly desired. Gene’s words have stuck in my mind “your not going back”. I am happy to say I have lost 30 ibs and 31 inches and still going strong and “im NOT going back”! Thanks Gene!
Having spent years in the gym doing what I thought was ‘correct exercise’, I decided to work with the trainers at FIT FACTORY. Eleven years later, I am happy to say I am in great health and the education I have received has allowed me to create a lifestyle balance I can maintain for the long haul. FIT FACTORY provides the one thing we all need, accountability. The trainers keep you accountable to your goals so that your success will be far greater than you could ever accomplish alone. I highly recommend that if you don’t like how you look and feel then it’s time to get in touch with the FIT FACTORY and change your life!
