Don't like crowded gyms? Take advantage of an opportunity to accomplish your goal: learner, stronger body; lower blood pressure, build confidence, or shed unwanted pounds--in the privacy of comfortable facility with a trained professional.


Challenge yourself through intense exercise circuits and feel the support through camaraderie and motivation. Smaller sized bootcamp classes become instructional and safer due to a better instructor/student ratio 5:1.


Inactivity is your worst enemy. It will tear your body down into brittle if you allow stagnation to rule your adult life. Now is the time to increase blood flow and improve muscle strength through individualized exercise programs.


Personal training does not have to break the bank. With proper budgeting and planning, allowing yourself a few times a week to exercise is the catalyst to developing a new outlook on life with a renewed energy and strength. Accomplish this with the help of a coach!


Exercise does not need to take more than one hour. With many joining cheap gyms and walking endlessly on treadmills for up to 2 hours, you will learn how to get stronger quicker and safer in under one hour. Enjoy the rest of your day with friends and family.

Nestled on the border of Manchester and Vernon, CT, this training facility is 700 sq. ft. of space dedicated to helping you achieve your goals. The facility is adequate for private training sessions or small group semi- private sessions including bootcamp classes.We have an extensive selection of tools to help you reap the results you are seeking. We include everything from flipping tires, battling ropes, pushing sleds, and incorporating numerous free weight exercises into most of the exercise programs. Inside the facility is a conveniently 32 foot long artificial grass lane for movement drills, sled pushes, and locomotive exercises.
