Life is short. None of us have much time on this planet, so if we’re going to commit to something, we want to go all-in and go hard. That’s particularly the case when it comes to strength training. If you’re going to build your muscles and conditioning, lose weight, or even take the first step on a path that could lead to the Olympics, you don’t want to screw around.

At Midtown Strength, we’re committed to helping you reach your goals the right way. We are a Sacramento-based gym that works hard and focuses on the fundamentals of movement and strength. Day in and day out, we will be here to help you achieve your fitness and strength goals. We offer customized and energetic workouts in groups or in personal training sessions. Each group workout is designed by a trainer and supervised by one or more trainers. This method ensures the continuity and ideal placement of movements for maximum benefit. It also allows us to help avert injury risks.

With more than 20 years of experience, owner Camilo Gutierrez and coach Travis Groft are committed to getting serious and helping you stay accountable. We’ll train hard, train consistently, then let you get on with your day. Life is short. It’s time to hit your full potential. Contact us online or by phone today to learn about our weight training programs.

Camilo is a firm believer that our bodies are tools to unleash our overall abilities and we are without limits in the gym if our minds are free, and he has applied this belief to his own life.

A star baseball player at McClatchy High School (Sacramento), Sacramento City College, and the University of Texas, Camilo now excels in the arena of sports fitness, bodybuilding, and intense strength training. His workouts are dynamic and incorporate Olympic lifting techniques, “old school” movements, and traditional conditioning.

A natural leader, Camilo has attracted a wide range of clients to Midtown Strength and Conditioning, from law enforcement officers to firefighters, bodybuilders, executives and many people in between, he pushes each individual to achieve their goals and realize their overall fitness potential.

Camilo began weight lifting at the age of 13. He has trained under some of the best instructors in the athletic and strength community, including Paul Carmozzi, Jerry Weinstein, Al Biancani, Jim Graf, and Chip Conrad. And while he has taken a little from each, he has developed his own unique style of training.

“Training our minds and bodies to do their best with the programming of long and short term and daily goals keeps us on track for continual improvement. Weightlifting is both an art and skill that can be practiced at any age or ability level. This sport has its highs and lows, but our love and passion for this amazing sport keeps us coming back to the next workout or competition. Let Midtown share our passion of weightlifting with you.”
