I am a runner who was sidelined for 18 months with various health and injury problems. When my body finally started to come back online, I knew I would need to invest in customized strength programming to get running again. I contacted Driven because of its focus on athletes and the education and experience of its trainers. I have been working with Heidi Bohall for about five months, and the experience has exceeded my expectations. Not only did she get me running again, but she is a lovely person, and I look forward to our sessions. I expect to remain a client for a long time.
The team at Driven has a lot of knowledge and experience in this field, it's not just another gym. They take the time to get to know you and your individual needs to build workouts specific to you, taking into consideration previous injuries as well as future goals. The trainers at Driven are individual focused and make sure you are getting the most out of the time you spend with them. I’ve participated in the group workouts as well which are small enough to still get quality input from the trainer who is coaching! I highly recommend checking out Driven. Each trainer there is fantastic!!
I have been a client at Driven for over several years. First, it's not a gym. It's a training facility. A real big deal. It's in a high-rise at 6th & Congress, so it's perfect if you live or work downtown. The five trainers are experienced, real smart with common sense, with multiple initials after their names because of their advanced degrees and continuing education. (One trainer is a physical therapist.) Each client comes for different reasons, whether to enhance their physical capabilities in a range of competitive sports including golf and tennis (they have teen-age athletes) or simply to stay in shape. In 2018 I had extensive back surgeries. The recovery process was awful. Six months after the procedures, I was cleared to go back. My trainer, Andy Twellman who owns Driven, did an initial and then on-going assessments, and thanks to his working on my strength and flexibility I'm in really great physical shape, the primary reason I had a full recovery from my surgeries. The training area is very well-equipped. Clients cannot be on the floor and using the equipment without with his or her trainer. The area is large, and there is never a need to wait at a training station until another client and trainer finish. I suggest you go in for an assessment and see if it's right for you.
Dr. Winn, Andy and Chase are TOP NOTCH in every way!! They train me to get most out of my body mnt biking, skiing, golfing, hiking, living, looks and longevity-wise in EVERY way.

I do enjoy to coming to golds gym, the front desk staff are always welcoming with a big smile. Sandra and Kristine are such great people. Always there to help whenever i need anything or to answer my questions. Sandra knows me by my first name, and she is such a sweet person!!
I started going to driven just over a year ago, having been to less than a handful of class based workouts. From day one it has been an incredible experience, and very comfortable place to workout given the spectrum of experience at the gym. Going to the gym always starts with a conversation or a “hello”, and always ends with a conversation or a “goodbye”. The trainers there are very hands on and helpful with all of the workouts, and always ask how the body is feeling in order to tweak a workout individually if needed. I can’t begin to explain how much stronger and better I feel since going there. It’s a great group and a great team.
Professional and qualified staff with targeted training..
If you are on the hunt for a personal trainer in downtown Austin, this is where the best of the best are. This team is incredible. True practitioners. They give each client hands on attention and a level of detail not found elsewhere. This isn’t some bro gym or your typical “trainer in a box” found at big corporate gyms. These guys are the real deal. Science focused. Individualized. Do yourself a favor and give Andy and his team a try.
