InnerCity Weightlifting reduces street violence by connecting high impact individuals with new networks and opportunities, including meaningful career tracks in and beyond personal training.
We use the gym to replace segregation and isolation with economic mobility and social inclusion, disrupting the system that leads to urban street violence.
In Stage I, we are focused on building relationships with students and establishing trust.
In Stage II, students begin developing renewed hope for an alternative and positive future.
In Stage III, students broaden their networks by connecting with individuals from opposite socioeconomic backgrounds.
In the final stage of our model, students, historically from hyper-marginalized backgrounds, are able to financially thrive.

I've been looking for an excuse to get back in shape for years and I've finally made it a priority thanks to ICW. I love working with Chino, showing up to meet him keeps me accountable and knowing that he loves being at ICW makes me want to come every day.
Training at InnerCity is one of the best things I've ever done. It's great for my physical health, my mind, and the community. Get started!
ICW is a win-win for everyone. As a client, I get an awesome workout for a lot less than I’d typically pay for personal training, and it’s with an amazing person who’s become a friend. To say that ICW offers life-changing workouts is not an exaggeration.
