About Manic-

Your Friendly Local Fitness Community

Who Are We

Manic Training is a family-owned gym on a mission to help people reach their fitness goals and live life on their terms. Established in 2011 with a handful of people at workouts, Manic has grown into a large and vibrant fitness community.

Our team of friendly and knowledgeable trainers come from a variety of backgrounds. Every trainer has their own unique style & skillset, and they all help to set the tone in our supportive, positive community. 

We pride ourselves on being a no-judgment, no frills and no mirrors zone, where the emphasis is on health, exercise, fitness and being Ready for Life.  We train functionally, with real moves for real life, because we know what happens in the gym is only as important as what it helps us do outside of it! We have a bunch of mottos, but one of our favorites is "Train In, Adventure Out."

Our members reflect these values a hundred times over... they are truly the heart of our community, From high school athletes to grandparents and everyone in between, our members value health and enjoying life to the fullest!

The Face Behind Manic

Message from John

"I truly feel blessed to be able to offer this fitness community to Rhode Islanders. I fully believe in the power of our workouts to help people meet all of life's challenges and to really thrive. I've seen it myself countless times - people coming in with concerns and limitations - either they're overweight or out of shape or anxious about starting a new exercise program - and months or even weeks later they're hooked and feeling so much better... physically and mentally. Many of our members say Manic helps their mood as much as their bodies. I just want people to be healthy and happy, so however it helps, I'm glad! Personally, Manic workouts help me continue my passion for mountain bike riding and other sports. I plan to stay active well into my old age, and that personal goal has really influenced programming over the years - I know what I need to do to stay strong, fit and active for life, and I want you there with me!"

John Ford


a family-owned gym

Manic Training has been at the heart of the Ford family since it opened in 2011. Knowing that he had found his passion and purpose life, John bought it in 2012 and grew it into the thriving community that it is today.

John comes from a family of athletes and a lifelong passion for health and wellness. He loves to not only offer exceptional workouts but other health, lifestyle and nutrition guidance that he uses to help himself.

His wife Nicole helps behind the scene at Manic, and is a therapist, yoga teacher and workout enthusiast; she also has nutrition certifications and leads detox programs for Manic members.

After working out at Manic for almost 10 years, their son Eli came on board full time in 2024, and he brings fresh perspective and vision to Manic. Their daughter Arden is also a fitness enthusist and supports Manic's social media presence.

The Ford family loves to play and adventure, and they know how important fitness is to living a full life. It's why they embrace the motto "Train In, Adventure Out."

The Fords feel honored to help other people live their best lives.
