Owner and trainer, Rich Mejias, explains, "At Next Generation Training Center, it's not about the equipment... it's not about the crazy programming... it's about creating an environment where our athletes love to come in every day and train hard. We do not have clients; we have family members. Our athletes push each other every day to not only become better themselves, but to help their family members succeed."

He also shared, "In regards to our programming, I would be happy to put our programming up against anyone in the world. We are constantly educating our staff and keeping up with the most recent research to make sure that all of our athletes are getting the best training possible. Every day that someone walks through our doors we guarantee that they walk out 1% better than they were before they came in."
