The Gains by Jesus organization was founded by Gregg Stegman.  Gregg spent a lifetime battling mental illness, poverty, chemical dependency and depression.  He grew up in foster homes, in and out of juvenile detention centers.  His faith and perseverance helped him overcome these afflictions and today he is a successful business owner and entrepreneur.  His passion and success story has inspired him to start a foundation that would help other people like him.  He is using his success and knowledge to help these individuals overcome similar adversity.   Although he never had the honor of serving in the armed forces his father was in fact an Infantry Commander in United States Army.   Gregg has always had a soft spot for active military, peace officers and disabled veterans.   Gregg personally does not know what a war hero or US veteran goes thru when suffering from PTSD or returning home trying to assimilate back into society but he does know what it means to feel helpless or lost in a world where you don’t seem to belong.  Medication, prayer, family and physical fitness has given his life all new meaning.  Now Gregg wants to spend his life serving those who served.   


According to a report published by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in 2016, which analyzed 55 million veterans records from 1979 to 2014, the current analysis indicates that an average of 21 veterans die from suicide every day.

Here at Gains by JC Gym, we not only want to help people achieve their personal fitness goals and provide a place of worship, fellowship and gains, we want to help rehabilitate the broken soul.  We know that addiction and chemical dependency is 9 times out of 10 a cloak we wear to cover the scars, bury the past, suppress our unhappiness, hide the tears and mask the pain caused by depression and anxiety or mental illness.  Thru positive motivation, mentorship, energy, prayer and physical activity,  we can help people find true happiness within themselves.  We believe strongly that an addict never truly recovers without replacing his addiction with another; examples including but not limited to overeating, sex, excessive drinking and smoking. We dare you to find ONE thing unhealthy about replacing a chemical dependency with an addiction to lifting iron.

Gains by JC Gym is not a treatment facility, rehabilitation center, medical practice nor is any of our staff members licensed therapist.  This is people helping people.  If you are having thoughts of suicide or wanting to hurt yourself please call one of the HOTLINE numbers below for help!
