New Arena Coming Soon!!!

The Arena is freshly painted and new lights installed!  We are just waiting for the rubber flooring to be put down before we move in the equipment.  This new room will add at least 500 extra sq ft to the arena and will provide a safer, more efficient space for powerlifting, olympic lifting, and crossfit training. Our plan is to wait until the room is finished and weights moved in before we install mirrors or purchase any new equipment.  We want to see how the room is used and get feedback from you all.  Email any questions or comments to us at info@colosseumgym.com. We’ll keep you posted on any updates and announce the official opening day once the Arena is complete!...
