How to Sign Up

  1. Fill out the initial registration form online.
  2. You will be contacted via email within 48 business hours to schedule a day and time for your first session.
  3. Bring your full payment to the first session, where you will complete an initial assessment so your trainer can determine the best plan to help you reach your goals. This includes health history, setting goals, movement assessments, and any biometrics you wish to take.

Due to extremely high demand, you may not be immediately matched with a trainer. You will be notified within two business days. If we are unable to assign you a trainer, your information will be kept and we will contact you again when a potential opening arises. Thank you for your patience and interest in our program!

Fitness Assessments

Fitness assessments help our trainers gauge your current level of fitness in order to create a customized workout plan. Each session begins with a postural check, movement screens, resting heart rate, resting blood pressure, height, weight, and body composition.

The body composition assessment is used to measure your body’s levels of lean and fat tissue. After these assessments have been made, our trainers can more effectively develop strategies to reach your goals.

Fitness Assessment 60-minute session $30
Body Composition 30-minute session $20
