"I was born and raised in Oklahoma, and this is where I plan to stay! No kids, never married, but I do have a beautiful yellow lab named Charlie (the gym mascot).
I played multiple sports growing up. I've always been active/athletic except in my early to mid 20's when I let myself go. I got up close to 200lbs (40lbs heavier than I am now) and I was in the worst shape of my life. I started turning my life around and towards Christ in my late 20's and that was about the time I found my passion in health and fitness. I'm 38 now and in the best shape of my life!
Not only do I maintain a healthy lifestyle but I improve every year, physically and spiritually. Owning my own gym allows me to be on the front lines to follow my passion to help others in all facets of life. Come see us at True Grit Fitness."

"J-MAC” here! I was born and raised in Edmond for the most part. HUGE family guy! I got into wrestling when I was 4 years old and all the way through college, so being in peak physical condition has been pretty much routine in my life. I went to college for sports medicine while also becoming group fitness certified.
Through the lifetime of this journey... I have done it the right way and I have done it wrong way. All I can say really is ... I love ❤️ my job. I want to share my experiences and our training styles to educate the community and of course have a dance party along the way! Did I mention I love people and my goal is to train you of course, but to make sure you have a BLAST while you work out?! God has blessed me in so many ways and I can’t wait to go on this journey with Travis."
"There is a right way to achieve ultimate physical fitness... it’s True Grit Fitness. WE WILL MAKE YOU BETTER!"

JEN (JG) GRIPE
Jen (JG) here! I was born and raised in Tuttle, OK and graduated college from SWOSU in Weatherford, OK. When I’m not working at True Grit, I am working at Integris Baptist Hospital (I always say the hospital is my brain-feeding job and True Grit is my soul-feeding job). I have the most supportive family and friends, the 2 most perfect weenie dogs (Winslow & Pearl)... and lastly, the most loving and encouraging gym family you could ask for.
We’ve all heard the saying “do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life,” -and at 28 years young, that saying has come true for me! There’s nothing like this place, this environment, and most importantly - - - these people! I was training with Travis before I ever started to work with him and I know those “first day butterflies” firsthand. So my advice to someone who is thinking about trying it? Just do it. The most difficult piece of transforming yourself from who you were yesterday to who you’re going to be today is that FIRST STEP!
Come see us, we want you here!
"I was born and raised in Oklahoma. Faith and Family are very important to me. I grew up playing multiple sports and have been very active all of my life. I have always had a passion for health and fitness but it never crossed my mind to pursue it as a career. Ever since I graduated college I’ve always wanted a career that would allow me to help other people. I started training with Travis and Jordan about a year ago to help me get back on track and find that fire again. I’ve been certified since March of 2018 and very excited to be at a place that shares faith and fitness all under one roof."

"Hey, fam, I'm Laura! Cool thing about me is I was born in Bogota, Colombia and moved to the USA when I was 2 years old. I have lived in Oklahoma for 5 years now. I went to high school in Branson, Missouri where I was a dancer and singer for 10 years before I found my love for fitness. I graduated in December of 2017 with a Kinesiology/Exercise Science degree from UCO.
I have trained many athletes and adults during my education. I am so thankful to have this opportunity at a gym where it is about more than working out, it's about growing in community and faith!

Hi! Lindsay here! I was born in Florida but have been an Oklahomie for 29 years! I have been with my very best friend and husband Sean for 11 years, married 4! We have a beautiful red-headed and sweet 2yo babygirl, Savannah. (You'll see her around here to also make you smile!) I love the outdoors, beachin', traveling, and just simply spending time with my family and close friends. I am a Respiratory Therapist outside of the gym and I love being able to take care of others that need me.
I cheered for 13 years growing up, always active and never worried about weight or fitness. When I started training with Travis 4 years ago as an adult- it changed my life. This place will bring you happiness, close friends that could turn into family, faith, new dance moves, FUN, and most of all- a healthy lifestyle! Your first time is free, so why not? It will be one of the best decisions you ever made!

Hey y’all! I’m Haley Roy, sole owner of HaleyDawn Photography LLC! I have partnered here with True Grit as their behind the scenes right hand gal! I’m the one snapping pictures of all you hard working Gritters! Keep up the great work!!
I'm a small town, country lovin’ girl. One who’d rather wear her boots than heels any day. After playing five years of college basketball, I'd still challenge anyone to a game of pig. When I'm not behind the camera, you can usually catch me here at True Grit working out, with a fishin’ pole in my hand or see me in a deer stand!
Photography is my passion! They say, “If you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life,” and I can truly say that this is accurate for me! Being able to create still images for you and your family to cherish a lifetime is what I live for! My mission is simple... to capture the special moments in life that tend to escape us, at an affordable cost.
