2021 (& 2020) Gold Medal Winner for Best Fitness/Exercise Center on the Lower Cape

Our approach to Fitness emphasizes Functional Training, Group Exercise, and variety.

Here’s why ...

Functional Training → Train Like You Move

Functional Training emphasizes exercises that mimic how we move our bodies in real life. It's 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

There is abundant research that shows that people who exercise in group settings have greater success in improving key measures of fitness, like enhancing their conditioning and losing weight; and stick with it longer.

Variety → Change is Good

Numerous studies have shown that having variety in a fitness regimen leads to a stronger commitment to regular exercise, and helps people achieve better results faster. Also, different approaches to exercise can produce different results.

We believe that exercise truly is medicine.

Exercise drug

The body of scientific evidence about the numerous and profound health benefits of regular exercise is nothing short of remarkable.

More visible goals like losing weight and getting more toned are obviously great motivations to work out. 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 what we look like in a bathing suit.

The effects of prolonged shutdowns over the past year have highlighted the importance of getting regular exercise - including for managing mental health issues like stress, anxiety, and depression.

Research also shows that - as we age - exercise can be an extremely effective tool for preserving brain health and mental acuity, and helps us maintain bone density and ward off osteoporosis.

But in order to reap the reap the many benefits of exercise, you have to put in the work ... and do it consistently!

So we've worked hard to create a place where people will want to come exercise, and an environment where people feel encouraged to improve themselves, create and build relationships, have fun, and keep coming back for more.
