GYM testimonial
Deyshia J. Centennial, CO

Seriously one of the best if not THE BEST gyms I've ever been to in my 25+ years of lifting. The owner, MaryHellen is fantastic and runs a tight ship there. There are machines I've never seen and I get so excited to go. There are some pretty strict rules but that's why it is always clean and doesn't smell like typical training facilities. Also, there are not a bunch of bros in there making women feel uncomfortable. It's quite inviting and friendly. All the weights are always racked and everything is/looks new. It hasn't ever been so crowded there that I had to wait on a machine/bench/rack and for me, the addition of the chandeliers, adding a touch of femininity is so cool. I had no problem deciding on getting a membership when I move to El Paso. Customer service was top notch as well. Bravo Backstreet.

Ellen W. El Paso, TX

Hands down, best gym in town (possibly all of west Texas) Mary Ellen runs a tight ship, by keeping her machines clean, everything in working order, and selecting friendly and knowledgable staff. If you're looking for a gym where you can keep your New Years resolutions all year long this is your place. It's good for people who know what they are doing, or if you're new to the gym, just spend some time with Mary Ellen. She's the queen and she'll teach you how to work out properly. You can accomplish all of your fitness goals at this gym and don't have to worry about not having a machine or space available. I can't wait to go back tomorrow!

Matt S. San Antonio, TX

BACKSTREET testimonial
George D. El Paso, TX

Best quality gym in El Paso. Has over a million dollars worth of equipment and it's rarely even close to full so it's like it's my own personal gym paradise. The owner Mary is tough as nails and can give you any advice you need. Great place.

Kennedy H. El Paso, TX

Best gym I've ever been to without a doubt. Every type of equipment imaginable is here. I've been a loyal customer for 3 years now and crave the serious fitness mentality. I live outside of El Paso and travel in town only one month out of the year and this will always be my go-to-gym. They are very welcoming and the owner makes this gym feel safe and like a second home. High respect for the owner and all of the regulars I have had the pleasure of meeting. Great and quality employees make you feel like a family. I wish there were more gyms like this one in the world.
