Founder & General Manager
Hey there! I am Joshua Roberts or as most know me, JRob! I am a graduate of Dutchtown High and moved to Baton Rouge in 2005. In June of 2012, I started my first GymFit class with 16 people. It has now grown into two locations with over 2000 members and multiple programs. It has been my dream for years to have a gym where everything is under one roof and it has finally happened! I have been a gymnastics coach since 2012 with a speciality in bodyweight strength & conditioning. Over the last 7 years I have been teaching and training AcroYoga/Acrobatics, juggling and other Circus Arts! One thing that I have learned, is that anyone and everyone is capable of learning something new, no matter your age or experience level! So come on out, step out of your box and try something different. You WON'T regret it!

David, the ring master himself, met Joshua through his original program while training for American Ninja Warrior. David competed in 3 seasons on ANW and now runs his on circus! Thats right his very own circus called Bayou Cirque. Did we mention he also is a performer himself? David performs on Aerial Straps and Trapeze at the ripe age of 46! He is truly an inspiration showing that no matter how old you are, you are capable of "awesomeness". David is also a wonderful husband, father to 3 amazing children and a scout leader to many wonderful kids. He is a great asset to the team and cannot wait to help spread fitness, fun and "the awesomeness" for all to enjoy.
Howdy y’all! I’m from the good old town of French s
Settlement and I love hunting and fishing! I absolutely love GymFit’s community and the diversity it offers.
