“Hi, My name is Stephanie and I started coming to Prodigy Gym about 2 years ago. When I first walked in it did seem a little intimidating. The owner, Chris, is super sweet and took the time to show me each piece of equipment and how it worked. There is a wide variety of age groups and fitness levels. I always feel super comfortable when I am here…just a twenty-something female.”

Meet The Owner

“I wanted to create A Gym Culture Where Everyone is Welcome.” – Chris Havekost, Owner & Champion Bodybuilder

I was born and raised in Ft. Collins. My 25+ years in the fitness industry began with a dream to build a gym with state of the art equipment. I imagined the safest, most effective and best rehabilitative equipment for all levels of fitness.

This dream grew as I experienced many different gyms during my early lifting years. As I traveled the world my equipment wish list included the very best equipment in the industry. Acquiring the state of the art equipment required several considerations. Selecting pieces that would make lifting safe for beginners who are learning how the muscles feel and work in tandem with the equipment was important. For the advanced heavy lifters, safety was a necessity. Those with injuries needed special pieces for rehabilitation.

I have lifted weights competitively for many years. As a nationally ranked bodybuilder, I experienced many injuries (various muscle strains, tears, aches, and pains, and then back surgery in 1999). From these injuries, I became an expert in rehabilitative exercise. . So, my wish list grew to include the best rehab equipment for improved range of motion, form, and progressive resistance.

A lifelong dream arose. I had the opportunity to train at Armbrurst Pro Gym, the same gym as Mr. Olympia, Phil Heath. I jumped on it. I traveled every day for 2 years just to work out there. Most people did not understand my reasoning. When I walked in the gym I felt empowered. The motivating music, pictures of athletes from all disciplines hung on the wall, and the insane assortment of plate loaded equipment spoke to me. I thought any lifter on any level could be successful in this environment.

I realized my dream and decided to bring a gym like Armbrust to Ft.Collins in (when?). I want to share my passion for fitness and empower you to live your dream too.

“I have been coming to Prodigy for about a year now. I come here because its more of a gym than a “club”. I grew up as an athlete and so I appreciate the huge variety of equipment to workout on.”
