We Offer Many Services (not all listed).
Freight House Fitness is located in the west bottoms of Kansas City. The west bottom is a historic part of Kansas City. Our building was originally the home of Bliss Syrup company and is over 100 years old. With its original structure still intact we wanted to play off of its rustic appeal. We have brought in up-cycled and reclaimed pieces that were hunted for around Kansas City. Each piece adds to the buildings already rustic appearance and gives it a warm inviting feel. Our desire was to create and environment that felt inviting and would leave each client wanting to come back not only for their amazing workout but to just hang out, enjoy some coffee and take in the eclectic scenery.
At the studio we offer group personal training and one-on-one personal training. We have designed the layout to give you a style of workout that is efficient, fun and will burn a ton of fat!
Our guidance will take you through step by step from a formula for your calorie goals to breaking down exactly what proteins, carbs and fats are. We are big believers in Healthy soil makes healthy plants, healthy plants make healthy animals & healthy animals & plants make healthy human beings. Making sure you know the source of your food is an important step towards health. Seek out small local farmers for your food & if you can’t get local make sure it’s fresh.
The term organic has been bought and paid for and no longer guarantees a pure and healthy food- large scale agriculture can now produce food to be sold as “organic”. Just because they are using organic pesticides & fertilizer does not mean the food is healthier or sustainable. Nature loves diversity so farming 100’s of acres of 1 crop is not creating a healthy ecosystem that supports healthy life. Seek out produce grown using polyculture systems meaning more than 1 crop. Even pasture raised beef, lamb, pork, eggs needs diversity within the pasture e.g varies species of plants.
Farmers that rotate crops, compost and rotational graze for meat production are looking after the soil by allowing it to rest & produce. Forcing the soil to produce more with chemicals only depletes it further & when farmers have to use biocides to control unwanted weeds & pests it’s a sign that something is out of balance.
The vitamin, mineral and enzyme content is high in truly organic food and these are extremely important for creating a healthy body. Remember fats, proteins, carbs & calories alone are not a measure of nutrition so go out of your way to get high quality produce.
Come As You Are Atmosphere
Alarm goes off & Its 445, walking around the house half asleep while pouring some coffee to get those eye lids above half mass. Worship music on the radio on the drive to the gym while it’s still dark out. Walking up four flights of stairs in an old freight house building and unlocking the door to our wonderland. Welcome to Freight House Fitness! People pour in for the 6 am boot camp anticipating what we will have on the plate for them. As they wait we chat and catch up on their life, gear them up for the brutal 30 minutes to come and boom its 6 on the dot, class has started!!
Smiles, laughter and eagerness grace the faces as we begin 30 minutes of non- stop High Intensity full body weighted cardio workouts. Grunts, Sweat maybe a few tears and determination is in the eyes of the clients. Switching every 45 seconds the clients stay engaged, breathing, focusing on their form, keeping that heart rate up and then were on to the next workout. With Sean with half of the group and I with with other we are able to keep the focus on the clients and push them while focusing on their form and technique. After about 15 minutes of one circuit we switch it up to another circuit, keeping the clients interested and focused. Rest you ask?? We give active rest to the ones that need it but other than that we are pushing through for a solid30 minute interval workout!! After the class is over the clients are toast. They came, brought their best; we kicked their butts and now they’re ready to take on what the day has to offer! After the boot camp Sean and I talk and reflect on our 30 minutes. Our usual comment is man, that was brutal! Having put ourselves through the workout the day before, it allows us to have more of a connection with the clients and their workout.
We offer 30 min workouts 3 times a day 6am, 6:45am 12, 5:15pm and 6pm leaving us with time in between to offer one on one training as well. This dynamic is so great because we are able to offer different services to fit different people’s needs. Our mission at freight house fitness is to bring your spirit alive. Do what makes you happy and leaves you feeling full! We focus onpositive reinforcement paired with self- love and inner healing. We meet people where they are at and build them up from there. When you walk through our doors you will find a motivational weekly quote under our have faith portion on our chalk board wall. “I am” statements like I am Secure, I am Loved, I am precious, I am worthy & I am priceless. We gear our gym towards mental and spiritual wellness along with physical wellness. It’s a total package; you can’t have one without the other. This sort of environment is something Sean and I love and desire for ourselves as well. To know you can walk into our gym and leave all your worries, stress of the day at the door and just focus on you is the best feeling ever. In those four walls we build community, encourage each other, talk about life, act silly and enjoy a little break from the craziness of our day.
Changing lives is something Sean and I have always been passionate about. Seeing peoples spirits freed and heaviness lifted off their shoulders give us such joy. Hearing our clients feed back about how they just feel so great when they come in and when they leave, how it doesn’t feel like they’re going to work out when they come to Freight House and how they just have so much energy for the rest of their day. These little comments are like music to our ears. Knowing we can provide an environment that people love being a part of tells us we are doing things right.
I encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and be uncomfortable, when we are uncomfortable that when we are going to grow. Come join us for a Brutal 30 min Sweat Session and you will leave wanting more!!!

Are you ready to take on the challenge?!?! Here is some success stories…
“I began attending bootcamp at Freight House Fitness in August and it was unlike any other form of exercise I have experienced. I left each workout feeling challenged and exhausted, but I kept coming back because the community at Freight House Fitness was so welcoming and fun! It was easy to make friends with other boot campers and the trainers made an effort to know and encourage me.
Exercising gave me a great sense of accomplishment each day and my body felt stronger, but I didn’t see the full results of my hardwork until I began the Freight House Fitness 90 Day Challenge.
The personalized nutrition plan that Sean and Kendra created for me helped me gain awareness about the foods I was eating. I recognized that I was eating too many calories and not consuming enough protein. The trainers at Freight House Fitness are incredibly educated about nutrition and were always available to answer the questions I had regarding my experience. Sean and Kendra listened to my expectations for the 90 Day Challenge, and they took my eating preferences and goals into consideration when creating a plan for me.
The regular communication and positive demeanor of each Freight House Fitness instructor encouraged me and helped me to be accountable for the duration of the challenge.
I recommend the Freight House Fitness 90 Day Challenge to everyone! It is perfect for people who want to achieve fitness goals, learn about personal health and nutrition, lose weight, and HAVE FUN!
The Freight House Fitness 90 Day Challenge gave me tools that are sustainable for lifelong healthy living, and I will use what I leaned through this experience the rest of my life.” – Brooke
“My wife Jessica and I started working out at Freight House Fitness in September of 2014. My wife saw a Groupon and thought it would be a fun way to work out together. From our very session we were hooked. Sean and Kendra were always so nice and welcoming; it made it that much easier to come. In the beginning it was our goal to work out at least three times a week. I would be lying if I told you it wasn’t tough. But with the guidance and positive attitudes of Sean and Kendra we pushed on. During the first couple of months we didn’t change our diet at all, we still ate out almost every night, and I ate terrible lunches. I was frustrated that I was putting effort into working out, and only seeing nominal results. That’s when we signed up for the 90 Day Challenge.
My wife and I started the 90 Day Challenge in January 2015. After getting weighed in, measured, and photos taken we knew we had some serious work to do. From the very beginning Sean was great at providing guidance with our diets and workout routines. He came up with a great diet that was difficult, but not impossible. From that moment forward we were committed. We started coming to work out every day the gym was open. We prepared all of our meals for the week on the weekends and followed the diet to the letter. Finally some results! I was astounded at how quickly my body reacted to my new diet. I wasn’t starving, if anything there were times I had to force myself to eat! Over the next three months we worked diligently toward our personal goals. Sean adjusted the diet and the work out every week with a purpose. After it was all said and done I lost 30 pounds and dropped to 9 percent body fat. I could not have hoped for a better outcome.
Over the next couple months and beyond we are now conditioned to check the nutrition facts of everything we eat. We are still making our meals for the week and still working out every day, not because we HAVE to, but because we WANT to. I am confident that the 90 Day Challenge changed my life, without it I would be 30 pounds heavier and not nearly as centered on fitness and nutrition as I am now. Don’t do something because other people expect you to. Do it because you want to.” – Joel

The Things You Should Know
Built on Heart
After complete frustration in their own relationship and knowing they were in love but seeing patterns taking place that were holding them back from their potential they sought counseling. Fortunately they discovered a class about inner healing using family of origin issues and their faith with God.
Their healing began through forgiveness and humility and restored their relationship. Sean and Kendra then started seeing this pattern of negative self-talk due to how people were raised and this began to uncover the source of why people don’t accomplish their fitness goals.
Then they began to see where America and the FDA have taken our food and deceived us and set us up for failure by making us believe we’re eating “healthy foods” approved by the FDA. In all reality it’s the small local farmers who need support and are doing things the way God intended.
Kendra and Sean decided to start a movement. A movement of inner healing, local eating and fitness. Not only will you look fit but your soul will be awaken to its true potential. Your body will be responding to a healthier, happier Lifestyle that you can pass down from generation to generation. Lets start a Movement!
