Why us?

Specifically Designed for High Performers.

Because our standards are higher; and yours should be too.

The fitness industry has no regulation or licensure. Most personal trainers have little more than a passion for exercise and a "certification" that they likely earned with a few weeks of self-study -- or, at the most, over a weekend seminar.

That "professional" personal trainer you are trusting with the health of your endocrinology, cardiology, and orthopedics likely has absolutely no formal education in any of these areas. (It should come as no surprise that improper exercise instruction is one of the top causes of insurance claims in the fitness industry.)

This is why our hiring standard for our personal trainers is a minimum of a BSc in Exercise Science, though most have earned Master's Degrees.

Our personal trainers are not working to make ends meet while they pursue acting careers or other endeavors -- they are committed career professionals, who are apply four to six years of in-depth technical education to ensure that you reach your highest potential.

Don't let the status quo set your standard -- set your own for your most valuable asset, your body, and come work with us.
