About our gym

Lift Locally at Patriot Fitness

peak hours & big-box amenities aren't for us

The clang of iron. The intensity on the treadmill. The privacy to stretch, pump weights and more whenever you want. Our team sought a no-nonsense gym and a space that encouraged community, so we created it right here in Sarasota.

Patriot Fitness is a locally owned and operated gym that never “clocks out,” offering you safe 24/7 access to the fundamentals of fitness. Count on no frills, no pressure and no closing time when you join us – the gym built just for you.
