Looking for a place to workout in the Emporia Area? Voted by Google as the number one place to workout in Emporia “S.T.R.O.N.G Temple Fitness & Personal Training Center” is owned and operated by Eugene Porter. At age 17, he was falsely accused of murder and was sentenced to 50 years with 25 suspended. While inside he says the only outlets he had was working out and boxing.
After 18 years inside he was released in 2012. With a new lease on life he started to visit a local gym where he garnered attention for others due to his training styles. He became a personal trainer and excelled. Later he and a partner decided to go into business for themselves. Plans changed and he was left wondering what to do. Discouraged, he asked God what to do… God told him to continue and name it S.T.R.O.N.G. He asked the meaning and God told him “S” Standing, “T” Together, “R” Relying “ON”, “G” God. S.T.R.O.N.G Temple Fitness and Personal Training Center was born that day.
His goal was to make a place that was cost efficient and set the bar for all who were transitioning back into society. Eugene Porter has done just that and so much more in the last 8 years after his release. His establishment is rated the #1 place to workout in Emporia.
