is a public gym in historic downtown Reidsville, formerly Dynamic Fitness, that was established in the early 1990s and served the city and its members well since it's beginning! In June of 2015, PLS founders, Ryan and Sheri Young, moved to the farm in Reidsville to fulfill the vision God gave them. Soon after settling in, they joined this local gym and built a relationship with the family who owned it as well as the surrounding community. Miraculously, PLS was offered the opportunity to purchase the gym as an extension to the farm ministry in spring of 2018. Ryan and Sheri were extremely thrilled and thankful for this blessing and answer to prayer as their long-term vision included a gym, but they also knew that this was about be a HUGE undertaking. Since April 2, 2018 when the gym became PLS The Rock, it has been utilized for many purposes other than just weight lifting and exercise. The boys in our leadership development and residential programs are prioritized in who is benefited as they get to take advantage of tutoring, exercise, Jiu-Jitsu, haircuts, community service, along with a food and clothes bank where they can even take items home to their families... all at no charge to them.
The second group of people who benefit from PLS The Rock are the gym members. It's undoubtedly a family atmosphere with genuine care and compassion with a splash of healthy competition at times! A prayer board on the wall allows people to write and pin their requests, pray as they read the others, and have their faith encouraged by seeing the answered prayers! Many, many members have said they can sense the presence of God in the building and we've personally witnessed grown men break down in the office, parking lot, and even around the equipment as they opened their hearts to let the Holy Spirit in. As humans, we're composed of a mind, body, and spirit, so it's our honor to help strengthen not just the physical component through a fitness center, but also the mental and spiritual components of each individual who walks through our doors.
We've offered a variety of classes over the last year and a half and, starting in January 2020, we'll be be kicking off some new quarterly classes for group exercise, wellness, education/information, at various times throughout the week to hopefully accommodate everyone's schedules and needs!
Word gets around town that this gym is different. There's no denying that God is doing some really cool stuff and we're honestly just humbled to be involved in it. He continues to send laborers for different purposes at different times, and we definitely need all the help we can get for the magnitude to which He's called us. We can't do it alone so we're SO grateful for the community He's blessed us with at PLS The Rock!
