Defining Natural Ability

Never Miss A Workout Again!

DNA: The Best Gym in St. Louis

Defining Natural Ability (DNA) is the best gym in St. Louis because we provide you with as many resources as possible to help you crush your fitness goals. We’re a real gym that incorporates the best of the training disciplines. We might look similar to Crossfit but don't be fooled we are a bit different. We offer many different classes focusing on goals such as body building, weight loss, or even Olympic lifting. We also offer group fitness classes in everything from kettlebells to suspension workouts which are intense, but will leave you feeling like you accomplished something. If you’re not into the group scene, we also offer one on one and semi-private personal training, where we can put more focus on you and your specific goals. We even offer athletic training with our sport-specific training techniques. No matter what your goals are, one of our fitness experts has the tools to help you succeed.

Health and Wellness Leads to Weight Loss

Health and wellness are extremely important to not only making you feel good, but also helping you achieve your weight loss goals. As they say, you can’t outtrain a bad diet. Weight loss starts with what you put in your body. We regularly hold nutrition seminars covering topics like clean eating, intermittent fasting, cleanses and many other subjects. We even hold smaller gatherings, where a few athletes can get together to exchange recipes with each other and ask questions. We also host a private Facebook group, so you can get tips and advice when on the go! Health and wellness is as important to us as it is to you.

Fitness Classes that Will Whip You into Shape

We offer high-intensity conditioning classes open to everyone (walk-ins welcome). These fitness classes run for an hour, and the curriculum (no two are exactly the same) will leave your body guessing. A class could include kettlebells, suspension work, or bodyweight exercises. They are built to challenge your body and working out with the class will motivate you to work harder. Find out more about our classes here.

Body Building

Need help with your form, or just want to make some serious gains? Our body building experts will help you develop the perfect form for every lift so you hit your next PR. We also offer mobility and flexibility training to help your out your training.

Crossfit is All the Rage

Crossfit has become popular over the last several years. We are happy that it has brought so much attention and helped so many new people develop better health and wellness. But we’re not a crossfit gym, we’re a different kind of fitness studio. We focus on your goals and tailor a program that will help you get there. Crossfit, despite its popularity, is not always the answer. Come in and talk to one of our staff about your weight loss, body building, or fitness goals today.
