Novus Strength Training has been providing functional training programs in Bedford Indiana since 2012.  We have had the pleasure of working with hundreds of people from the community. Novus has provided training to a wide variety of kids, athletes,adults, and seniors . We believe that everyone can improve and enjoy their workout journey.   Novus training programs are set up for anyone who has the interest and willingness to work and improve themselves.  We work with all levels of fitness.   Our Strength and Conditioning Specialists Tyler Evans and Truman Marek have been in Strength and Conditioning since 2008.  Prior to starting Novus Strength Training, they both had the opportunity to work alongside and learn from many great Collegiate and Professional Strength Coaches.  During those years Truman and Tyler spent time training adults, youth, collegiate athletes, MLB,and MiLB baseball players.   The practical years of experience were crucial in developing their own training philosophies and have led to the way they program design at Novus. . 

 Along with developing fitness programs, Novus Strength also offers hitting, pitching, and fielding instruction for baseball and softball players.
