About Our Gym in Briarcliff

We are more than just a KC gym. We are more than a collection of weights and cardio machines. We are a full functioning gym who employs staff and fitness experts that truly care for your well being. At the inception of our facility, we had one passion: “Make feeling great a reality.” Our passion has not wavered.

Maybe you’re new to the workout world. Maybe you’re a seasoned expert. Or maybe you’re somewhere in between. At Foundation Fitness, we can either take a hands on approach to your fitness goals, or let you come and go as you please. It really is your decision. We have community if you desire a group of like-minded people, or a 24 hour gym which allows you to come at any hour of the night if you desire seclusion – or just work a different kind of schedule!

Our desire is to help you reach your goals, whatever they may be. Knowledge is king, and we’ll help you understand the ins and outs of how to do this – because you can do this! It’s not overly complicated, but there is a balanced mixture of exercise and nutrition that plays an integral role in the overall health of your body.

Come on in today and talk with our trainers or front desk staff. Maybe you’re not quite ready to commit? Well, come try us out for 3 free days and decide after. No risk.

Amanda Gastl

Working out in my early 20’s I fell in love with the changes I began to feel and see within myself. As I gained strength physically I also began to become stronger mentally. I found that setting and accomplishing goals for myself built a confidence that I never had.I then began to grow a passion for helping others find their own confidence through working out & crushing their goals.

I believe in prescribing exercises that are tailored to a person’s needs in order for them to have lasting success in their fitness journey and that’s what I love doing!

Jeremy Harr

I have been a personal trainer since 2019 and have trained clients from all walks of life in that time period! I grew up with a passion for sports, health and fitness up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I played football, basketball, baseball and ran track and field growing up. My success in track and field is what brought me to Kansas City to join UMKC’s program as a Jumper and Sprinter. While at UMKC, I earned All-Conference honors in the Western Athletic Conference 9 times, was a team captain for 2 years and became a conference champion in 2017.

As a trainer, I have enjoyed building relationships with my clients while simultaneously kicking their butts. I am very passionate about helping kids build their athletic foundation so they too can earn a scholarship to college and receive a higher education. Creating a community while helping people with their overall health, strength, and sports performance needs and seeing people succeed is what I strive for!
