We pride ourselves on being more than "just a gym." That's why we offer a variety of services that impact your overall health and wellbeing: 

Personal Training and Fitness Assessments

Physical fitness is achieved by choosing to live a lifestyle that leads to the development of improved levels of cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength, and flexibility as well as achievement and maintenance of healthy body weight. Our personal training service strives to serve Butler University and the surrounding community by meeting the needs of our clients. 

Fitness assessments are the essential first step in the training process. It allows for the opportunity to gather information related to the participant's current level of health and physical fitness. Fitness assessments are comprehensive and will take approximately 45-60 minutes to complete.
