tampa, florida – When Jen Rottsinger isn’t training herself, she makes it her mission to help people achieve better results.
“We’re a strength-oriented, powerlifting-based gym,” said Rotsinger, co-owner of Gorilla Bench Training Center in Clearwater. “We are serious about growing people not just physically but mentally and building community.”

After all, it’s those two words projected in giant letters outside her building that are drawing people to Gorilla Bench Training Center now more than ever.
“New Year’s resolutions are often asked at the beginning of the year,” Rotsinger added.
While Rotsinger appreciates the motivation for 2024, he always advises new clients to take a step back to focus on the journey, not the destination.
“This journey is set up around…’What habits do I change? How do I get better?'” Oh, I’m a failure.’ But you lost 17 times!” Rotsinger laughed. “That’s not failure. But if you’re just focused on forming habits and trying to get better every day, trying to be better than you were at the time, your final destination isn’t your greatest happiness.”

This shows that fitness goals are much more mental than physical, and Rotsinger says going out with friends is a great way to help promote yourself. He said it could happen.
“Having someone with you can really help you hold yourself accountable to yourself and others,” Rotsinger emphasized.
