Here at the Grinder Gym, we return to that feeling of strength, support and camaraderie as we come together to celebrate life, health and fitness. We are a “Tribe”. There are no funky outfits and we don’t dance around a fire, but we do have our own way of doing things. What you’ll find here is a judgement free, fun atmosphere where we support each other and enjoy working out together; encouraging and allowing everyone to reach their individual fitness goals.
Every tribe is made-up of many different people with different skills, abilities and goals. Here at Grinder Gym our “Tribe” is made up of many different people, all at different fitness levels and all with different goals. Each has his/her own idea of fitness and health for themselves: some are just interested in “being in shape”, eating right and enjoying life; there are others who want a highly muscular build; others who must work on endurance or strength.
No matter what your fitness level is when you join us, and no matter where you plan to go with this, we welcome you to the Grinder Gym. Students, Soccer Moms, Executives, seniors and in-betweener’s; we welcome you all to join us and become a valued member of Grinder Gym, a member of the Tribe.
The Grinder Gym is led by Master Fitness Expert, Nutritionist and family-man, Dave DePew.

Since then, he has transformed the lives –and bodies– of thousands of San Diegans by imbuing his trainees with his lifelong philosophy of diligent daily fitness combined with intelligent and scientifically-proven dietary and nutrition planning and supplements. His reputation throughout San Diego for producing amazing fitness results with his clients is well known.
One Dave DePew success story is that of John Hofman, whose odyssey from a 406-lb workaholic, to a reborn, healthy businessman has become a well-known anecdote in San Diego fitness circles.
Dave obtains results from his clients, as he did in this case, through a caring, considerate approach that avoids focusing too much on immediate, temporary results, and instead concentrates on embarking clients on a permanent fitness lifestyle that emphasizes progression over instant perfection.
