One New Years resolution just got a little easier to fulfill with the opening of Power Crush Training Center, a new strength training gym in the Napa Valley Commons. Located on the corner of Latour Court and Napa Valley Corporate Drive, the recently opened facility provides a professional and semi‐private fitness option for those who are looking for something different from the standard big gym crowds.

Just a few minutes spent in the gym and you quickly get the feeling that it’s the local gym, the kind of place where people know your name, a place that is enjoyed by its members; either there to get a general workout or to focus in on their strength training goals. The Napa local feel is made even more apparent by the gym’s welcoming owner and founder Michael Koufos. A trainer and competative powerlifter since 1991, Michael has been a key founder in the opening and opertion of some of the large gyms in Napa. Power Crush is Mike’s second home and obvious passion. Using his professional skills as a welder and mechanic, Mike custom fabricated many of the unique powerlifting and training machines at Power Crush.

With a heavy focus on powerlidfting, the facility is packed with everything one would need to pursue their fitness goals. The gym meets the needs of any member with its two training areas. Those looking for a general workout can find a large variety of cardio, selectorized, and free weights in the North training area, while those looking for a focused powerlifting experience can find an amazing array of specialized equipment including lifting platorms, competion bench presses, multiple squat racks, push sled, plyo boxes, and more functional training equipment in the large South workout area.

Thinking of making this your new early morning, lunchtime or a􀅌er work fitness location? Here are a few more benefits to consider… The gym is self‐accessible and entry is by a secure keytag entry system, so you can get in when you need to during operational hours. The gym has highly‐valued etiquette policies that each member agrees to abide by, keeping the space a professional, clean, and welcoming environment.
