Established in 2015, The Train Station Fitness is not just a gym, but Youngstown’s premier fitness community. Our 15,000 square foot Boardman facility and 5,000 square foot Niles facility both feature state of the art equipment, top notch coaching, and scalable programming for all ages, abilities, and skill levels. With dedicated personal training, and programs such as CrossFit, Power Yoga, Sports Performance Training, and a variety of Bootcamp options, we combine personal attention and hard work to maximize personal results.

Every day inside The Train Station, “we are going to love fitness and love one another by relentlessly striving to guide people in becoming the best version of themselves via creating a safe, all-inclusive, caring environment that helps people reach their full potential.”

Our Classes


CrossFit WOD (Workout Of the Day) class lasting for one hour instructed by a coach comprised of a warm up, strength exercise (squat, press, deadlift, etc.) and a WOD (high intensity workout usually lasting anywhere from around 8-15 minutes). The cool thing about a CrossFit WOD class is that every day is different. Attend class 365 out of 365 days and you will have attended 365 different classes. Programming for each class is done professionally and intentionally with the goal of giving you the most versatile and all inclusive results in performance and aesthetic gainZ (yes, with a Z). In just one hour you can achieve more and improve yourself more than some people do in over 2 or 3 hours spent in a commercial gym. Expect the unexpected in a CrossFit WOD class: barbells, no barbells, body weight, gymnastics, aerobics, rowing, running, jump rope, etc. Can’t do some? Can’t do any? Can’t? Yes, you can. Every movement in every class is designed so that it can be modified depending on the level of a person’s fitness while still achieving the same stimulus! All aboard!


The Train Station’s youth, high school, and collegiate performance training programs for individuals and teams utilize the same methodology and intensity as professional athletes to prepare for next level competition. Ask about our team of experienced trainers who can help get yourself, son, or daughter performing at the highest level. We have coaches who have played in the NFL, who have won Division I National Championships, and know what it takes to excel on the largest stages. We prepare athletes to maximize their body’s potential and competitive edge by increasing strength, power, speed, quickness, endurance, flexibility, and mental toughness.


We offer a variety of bootcamp and specialty classes throughout the year at both our Youngstown and Niles Stops. Each bootcamp is unique and taught by our dedicated coaches focused on personal attention and maximum results.

Physical and Mental Strength

Yoga is a beneficial workout on its own as well as complimenting other fitness programs offered here at The Train Station. Instructed by a certified instructor, you are guaranteed to feel confident in class. For thousands of years, Yoga has been proven beneficial for the mind and body and is easy to learn. Power yoga is low impact and includes a flow or rhythm from one to pose to the next designed to provide a solid workout. Do not let the work "Power" be intimidating, we strive to accommodate every skill level by providing modifications for new and advanced yogis. Each class is an hour long and always different, but incorporates the same poses.

Our Yoga program is the key to a safe and healthy fitness routine you have been searching for by building flexibility, balance, strength, and mental training. We also incorporate mind body recognition and breathing techniques to lower stress levels. (No more road rage!) Why are flexibility and balance important? Tight muscles are more prone to injury like tears and strains. Loosening the muscles allows a wider range of motion that the body is intended to move in. After sitting at a desk all day, lifting weights, or doing 150 wall balls we all could use a good stretch to feel better!

Along with our routine classes, we also offer private yoga classes and sessions. These sessions can help perfect that certain pose or learn more advanced poses that require more explanation and practice. These sessions are perfect for those that prefer personal training for a personal experience. Have a group of friends interested in a private class? Request a themed session for a wedding parts, or a relaxed class with stressed co-workers. Basic, advanced, or Yin Yoga requests can be made in private classes.

What should you bring? Yourself, a yoga mat, and a smile is all that would be needed. We have fun in class with upbeat music and friendly members. Yoga props such as blocks and straps are often used and are provided. If you do not have a mat they are available for purchase before class.

Personalization and Scalability

Looking to get better at your split jerk or double unders? Looking to lose a few pounds or get that beach bod ready for summertime? Look no further my friend, your stop is here and it’s time to get off the bad diet and no exercise train and start traveling towards the new you. Ask us about our experienced trainers who can help you arrive at a place where your fitness has never been better. We offer convenient one-on-one individualized programs, or a dual training program for you and friends to team up. We integrate exercise, diet, nutrition, nutritional supplementation, and meal prep to round out a well balances training regimen.
