Experience Fitness. Experience Community. Experience The Summit.

Fitness Your Way

We believe an individualized wellness path and a supportive community are vital to achieving a healthy, happy, productive life. That is what we aspire to provide at The Summit. Our goal is to be your home for fitness – the place where you feel welcomed, accepted, comfortable and supported.

At The Summit you can choose your fitness path from all we have to offer, including a full complement of exercise equipment, knowledgeable personal trainers, unlimited group fitness classes, and the innovative Fitness Concierge service which bridges the gap between the traditional gym experience and online and app-based fitness coaching.

We offer several membership options – all month-to-month. No long-term contracts, no initiation fees, no cancellation fees, no "deposits" or other hidden charges. Just fitness – your way.

Personal Training at The Summit

Our personal trainers are some of the best in the business. We only hire the most qualified candidates after a rigorous selection process. All our trainers are nationally certified and undergo our own continuing education program to make sure you are getting the very best guidance.

Choose from individualized one-on-one sessions to online coaching to our innovative Fitness Concierge program that bridges the gap between both.

Personal Training, the Summit Way

Your training experience starts with a free consultation with one of our knowledgeable trainers to understand your goals, your health history and your exercise experience.

From there, your trainer will take you through a Functional Movement Screening to diagnose existing or potential problems or limitations.

Your trainer will then formulate a custom training program specifically for you based on the very latest advances in exercise science. You and your trainer will set a schedule designed to accomplish your goals without the risk of injury or overtraining.

Get started on the path to your fitness goals today. Contact one of our trainers to schedule your free consultation.
