Our Philosophy

"The key to success is not denying yourself, when something stands in your way, move it!"

Radical Fitness Club was founded on the value of people and their appreciation of their bodies. A trainer that is easy to get along with and who listens but does not accept excuses is one of the keys that will drive you to success. I will always give reasons why it's important to value one's self and to keep pushing. Before every work out you will be provided encouragement to succeed, however,  "I can't" will not be accepted but "I can" will take you a long way. Strong mind, Strong body is the motto and here is where we develop the mind and body for growth. Every class ends with a group huddle along with words of encouragement. Our end goal is to build a positive comradery within the community.

Conrad Caldwell Jr.

Owner/Lead Trainer

Anyone who has  been through or lived in the Midwest can attest to our hard work and can-do attitude. These values have driven my career as a fitness trainer. Helping people realize and reach their goals that they never thought were possible is my motivation.

I started my fitness training career in 2012 at TITLE Boxing Club in Cedar Rapids, IA. This came after I met my future employer while selling computers at Best Buy. After just one class I realized I had a passion for helping others achieve their goals. My passion grew with every class, every small group session, and every person I trained. I was dead set on being the best trainer I could possibly be.

I was with TITLE for 6 years until they, unfortunately, closed their doors. I began to think that this chapter in my life had came to an end but I still had the drive and passion to continue doing what I had grown to love. I took a couple of jobs at various gyms as a kickboxing instructor but I quickly realized those opportunities weren't for me and the programs were a bit different than what I wanted for my clients.

After long hours of reflection and prayer I came up with Radical Fitness Club where I could implement my own Boxing/Kickboxing program and philosophy. My clients loved the idea and had given me the motivation to take a leap of faith. I wanted a way to give back to them and our community so I am doing that by making my gym an affordable option for individuals and families! I look forward to meeting you next!

Thank You
