Our Approach to Fitness

We offer many of the features you'd expect in a gym, like top of the line cardio machines and a wide selection of weights and resistance training equipment.

But Chatham Works isn't a regular gym or health club. Our offerings and our approach to fitness emphasize Functional Training, Group Exercise, and variety.

Here’s why:

Functional Training → Train the Same Way You Move

Functional Training emphasizes compound exercises that are based on the movement patterns we use in real life, rather than machines that require repetitive, fixed-plane movements. A central goal of Functional Training is to enhance the coordinated working relationship between the nervous and muscular systems. This approach helps provide you with the strength, stability, and mobility you need to thrive - both in your everyday life and in sports.
Functional Training is ideally suited to adults who want to improve their overall fitness and conditioning, and lose weight. But it's also a staple in the training regimens of many elite and professional athletes.

Group Exercise → It's Better Together

Research has shown that people who regularly exercise in a social, group setting have greater success in improving key measures of their fitness, like enhancing their conditioning and losing weight.
Chatham Works’ Group Exercise classes give you a wide range of options to challenge yourself, build strength, and improve your conditioning and mobility - all within a fun and social environment.

Variety → Because Change is Good

Numerous studies have shown that having variety in fitness regimens leads to a stronger commitment to regular exercise, and helps people achieve better results faster.
Our value-oriented membership options encourage you get involved in all of the fitness choices we have to offer. Because we want you to get in there and mix it up.

Our Fitness Philosophy

We believe that some of the best reasons to exercise regularly have absolutely nothing to do with your appearance, and that a commitment to regular exercise should be a fixture in everyone’s lifestyle. Short-term goals like losing weight and getting more toned are great reasons to exercise. But for many of us, the benefits we can feel - stronger, more self-confident, less stressed, better rested, greater mental focus, stronger immune system, greater mobility, and better overall health - make a much bigger difference in our lives than the benefits anyone might see.

But in order to reap the many benefits of regular exercise over the long term, you have to commit to making fitness and exercise part of your lifestyle.
