The Mecca Gym is 9,000 sqft specialized training facility located in Meridian, ID.  Founded in 2015 by Eric Cafferty, The Mecca’s roots grew from his passion for health and fitness, bodybuilding and powerlifting.  

In 2008 Eric began his personal training business, having success on at many different levels he soon realized the need for expansion in order to better serve his clientele as well as increase accessibility to his services.  Eric recognized the need for community and the ability to create more leaders in evidence based fitness, leading clients to not only extreme results on stage, but long term health and wellness.  

Since 2015 The Mecca has strived to become a symbol for results, acceptance, community, evidence based training practices, health, fitness and inclusiveness into fitness culture.  Since its inception The Mecca has gone from a hundred members to other a thousand members in person and many more online with individuals seeking out safe and effective methods to gain strength, improve body composition and find enjoyment in exercise. 

 The Mecca is not a one size fits all gym.  It is home to a broad spectrum of clientele, from the competitive bodybuilder to people learning how to eat properly and exercise for the first time.  Because of this broad spectrum The Mecca has an ever expanding team of coaches, each one with their own specialty to ensure each client finds the perfect fit and gets the highest level of expertise available to achieve their individual goals.

Because of the increase in demand for quality coaching and evidence based training methodology, The Mecca has taken services online.  Now offering our unique coaching and training services online through virtual coaching, The Mecca fitness app and education through the lifting academy.
