“A dreamlike experience.”

Mark has been a pleasure to work with! You can tell he has a passion for fitness and will do whatever it takes to work with his clients to give them the results they want. I would recommend Best Fitness By Pharr to anyone in the area looking for a personal trainer..

“I can’t wait until next summer!”

Best Fitness by Pharr is a great place to workout! It is a beautiful facility and a great atmosphere to be in. Everyone is very friendly. There are a variety of great services offered! Mark Gates is definitely the man to see if you want to reach your fitness goals! After your workout, there is a clean bathroom to shower in and protein shakes and bars available for purchase. I am getting into the fitness industry myself, and Mark Gates has welcomed me into his gym with open arms. I am definitely learning from the best trainer in the Atlanta area!

"I've been training with Mark for about a year and a half. He had me in amazing shape, and then I got pregnant .. 😳🤰🏼😊He motivated me throughout my pregnancy and pushed me to be my best for my baby. I had my baby in April and now I'm almost back to my pre baby shape, thanks to Mark! 🙌💪👊
It's so nice to walk into a gym that's full of smiling faces, helpful staff, and a top notch trainer! I'm not always full of energy, but as soon as I walk into the gym, I feel so much better! I highly recommend this gym!" 🤗

I've been going to Best Fitness by Pharr since they opened. I absolutely LOVE Mark Gates! He is definitely my personal trainer for life. He truly cares about his clients. Not just their physical health but also mental & spiritual. He ALWAYS goes above and beyond to satisfy his clients. The gym is very family oriented and it doesn't feel like a club/ meat market. Ladies you get my drift. Lol! Long story short...you won't find a better gym! 🙌🏾😍💪🏾 M.E.Gates for Life
