The Training Station


Opened on Indy's Southside May 29, 1995, The Training Station combines the bright, clean atmosphere of an expensive, modern health club with the back-to-basics intensity of an 80's hard-core gym. With over 20 years of weight training experience, owners Doug and Toni Walker have a vision to make The Training Station one of the leading serious weight lifting gyms in Indianapolis.
