We focus on improving health and transforming women’s bodies through strength training, nutrition and cardio.

The goal is to increase metabolism by gaining lean muscle tone and decreasing body fat at the same time. “What gets measured gets managed.” That’s why we offer body composition assessments to track progress and help you reach your goals. 

This is a clean environment designed just for women who encourage and support each other as they work toward their goals. 

Seventy percent of women’s muscle metabolism comes from the lower-body, so we use the most effective training method to target legs and glutes. This has a lasting impact on the entire body and our program is designed to burn fat in the most efficient way possible.

A graduate of Fitness Institute International, he received his CPT-S (Certified Personal Trainer Specialist), and went on to get certified by NSCA(National Strength and Conditioning Association), ACSM(American College of Sports Medicine) and ACE(American Council on Exercise).
