Brooks DiFiore


It’s difficult for me to describe the impact gyms have made on my life. For me, the gym was the first place where I realized I could build the life I want if I’m just willing to put in the work. It’s the place where I can push myself to new limits and constantly challenge myself to be better.

To me, the gym is more than just a place you go because you feel like you should or that you have to. To me, the best gyms are places where you WANT to go. Where you’re excited to walk through the doors each day to be greeted by people who know your name, celebrate your wins, and push you to be the best version of yourself.

When I opened Arsenal in 2015 this is the type of gym I set out to create. Today our community is 150+ strong. Each of our members is unique and they all have their own story to tell. Some are just getting started on their fitness journey and some have been with us for years. If you are looking to improve your health and fitness and build relationships that will last a lifetime come in and see us. We’d love to have you as part of our crew.

Eric Rhodes


My Arsenal journey began in 2017 when I sat down with Brooks for my No-Sweat Intro. At the time, I had been ‘dormant’ regarding my fitness. So I asked him, “Can I do this?” And he answered without flinching, “Absolutely you can!” Six years later, after becoming a CF-L1 Trainer, I strive to provide that same level of confidence and motivation to everyone I coach.

Having discovered my fitness passion later in life, I can appreciate the struggles and anxiety people have when they are first taking those steps to improve their health and wellness. Fostering a healthy mindset is crucial to achieving fitness goals. My focus is on motivating members to become 1% better each and every day. And despite how challenging the workout may be, we can always RX the positive attitude!
