Fit4Lincoln is one of Lincoln’s most popular locally owned and operated gyms. Their goal is to expose and engage 20% of the city’s population to a healthy and fit lifestyle by the year 2025 through not only their workout facilities but through the numerous community programs they are involved in such as Kids Fit Club, Teacher Appreciation Learn and Burn’s, and Fit4Lincoln Corporate Wellness, just to name a few. According to Owner CJ Cooper, this can only be accomplished by continually serving their clients and the community to the highest standard while staying passionate about helping people achieve their health, fitness, and fat loss goals.

At Fit4Lincoln, they are extremely focused on mentoring fresh up-and-coming fitness coaches, trainers, and managers by helping them cultivate, develop, and foster long-lasting and loyal relationships. They ensure their coaches are always determined to be the best fitness mentors, providing the highest quality services, and operating with the utmost attention to honesty and integrity.

Three Pillars Performance is a sports and performance training program that Fit4Lincoln created that now operates out of the recently purchased 11,000-square-foot training complex known as The Driven Academy. The complex is complete with retractable cages for multi-purpose space and training aids such as balls, tees, pitching mats, and pitching machines. Select from one-on-one coaching, a membership so athletes can access the facility 24/7 to practice their skills, and recruiting advice to help navigate the process. Lessons through Three Pillars Performance include teaching methods developed by in-house educators delivered by experienced coaches. The lessons are tailored to the age and ability of the athlete from beginner to advanced, and homework assignments are given to reinforce learning between lessons.

Membership is never required at The Driven Academy, but membership is the best way to get more repetition. There are two types of memberships—Academy Membership and Power Membership—to best fit you.

CJ Cooper is also part owner and executive director of Ambassadors Sports, previously named Ambassador Basketball Association (ABA). After being involved as a coach for about seven years, he jumped at the opportunity to purchase the faith-based sports club. Ambassadors Sports organizes basketball, baseball, and eventually soccer tournaments for kids ages 8-18. Students have the opportunity to try out for a team and be a part of an enriching experience that will result in athletic and spiritual development.
