The Annex

The Annex is a private gym located inside The Sports Academy in Glen Carbon. We offer Personalized Coaching Hours, Bootcamp classes and Members Only hours.

Our Gym

There is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach at all Personalized Coaching Hours. During these hours, our coaches are there to ensure safety, provide information, coach you through personalized workouts, and guide you to your goals. Our goal is to ensure safety, get you to your goal, and have fun along the way.

The Annex was created for anybody who wants to get stronger, more fit, or more athletic. We welcome all ages and activity levels! At The Annex, you can find everything a recreational exerciser or competitive athlete needs: barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells, bumper plates, metal plates, bikes, rowers, ski-ergs, bands, squat racks, boxes, benches, sandbags, exercise balls, and medicine balls.

“All training levels are welcome. We are a family friendly fitness environment. Elite FT will help you achieve your goals!”
