At The Backstreet Gym, a gender specific program does not exist. Everyone trains as a top athlete. There are beginning, intermediate and advanced programs. People often ask Mary Ellen “What’s the best way to train?” and she answers “Every which way.” When trying to be the best, gender is not a factor. Backstreet Gym has dumbbells up to 200lbs and the best equipment on the market. As an added bonus, there is a fully stocked chandelier lit bar. Friday night is happy hour. After the daily workout from 5p.m to 7 p.m. clients can sit and sip wine. Then at 7:00 p.m. they can light the cigars. Mary Ellen believes in working hard and playing hard.
She is interested in the anti-gravitational process. What gravity pulls down she wants to lift up. If you come to train with her, she will take time and put you in a plan that can help you reach your top potential.
