The Forge was founded by Grace Smith, purely offering 1-1 Personal Training in a private, custom built Strength & Conditioning studio. Grace is a Coach like no other, in just 12 months she lost over 100lbs….by herself! Grace went on to compete in both CrossFit and Weightlifting, winning Gold in every Weightlifting competition she entered. In early 2016 Grace retired from competitive fitness to dedicate her time to coaching others to find health and happiness through nutrition and fitness.
With a unique, in-depth knowledge of the struggle of loosing weight and how to overcome any barrier to achieve your goals, Grace is a Personal Trainer like no other, with proven results in not only transforming her own life, but those who enter through the Forge doors…
