Reaction Fitness Collective is located in the heart of Downtown Greenville at 9 Ferguson Street. Our facility is within walking distance from major attractions in Greenville including the Reedy River and Fluor Field.
Our mission at Reaction Fitness Collective is to promote healthy and wholesome lifestyles through community-driven fitness.
Growth We aim to inspire and empower growth, both within each other and the ever-changing world around us. Growth for us represents a mindset that we are open to and accepting of our opportunities- be that on the gym floor, in our homes, or in our communities. We acknowledge that growth can happen in many forms, whether that’s embracing the discomfort of a workout, or embracing the discomfort of change, always coming out a little stronger than before.
Balance We value balance by acknowledging that what we do inside the gym helps us live better, more flourishing lives outside of the gym.
The physical exertion of exercise is just one piece of a much larger puzzle, and want you to feel empowered to supplement your lifestyle with healthy relationships, nutrition, self-care, and more.
Acceptance Acceptance starts with the self, but we are here to help. We aim to foster a culture of respect and encouragement for individuals of all ages, backgrounds, identities, and abilities- using fitness and exercise as a way to break down barriers and build up relationships.
