Since 2014

The Annex

The Annex is private gym located inside The Sports Academy in Glen Carbon, IL. We offer strength and conditioning, boot camp classes, personal training, and pregnancy and postpartum training.

We are Here to Help You Succeed!

During all of our class times, our coaches ensure safety, guide you through your workout, and help you to achieve your goals. We have certified personal trainers for one-on-one sessions, boot camps, pregnancy and postpartum athleticism, and nutrition. Also, all of our coaches have experience with children and teenagers.

We welcome all levels of athleticism: from those who do not have any athletic background to the elite athlete. We specialize in helping our members get stronger, more fit and/or more athletic!
