The Training Facility

In January 2016 The Sweatshop (gym), formerly located adjacent to the Shops at Merrick Park, joined forces with ClubX located at 1236 S. Dixie Highway, merging members, clients, trainers, and equipment.


Our Clients

Our clientele represent a particularly diverse spectrum of people within Coral Gables and neighboring communities. This can be attributed in large part to founder Damian Stephens’ extensive background and decades of experience working with people of all ages and abilities, from high-level athletes looking to gain a competitive edge to post rehab patients and individuals with pre-existing medical conditions desiring to enhance function and to  improve levels of health.
