OUR PHILOSOPHY

INTELLIGENT FITNESS FOR MAINTAINING AN ACTIVE LIFESTYLE

Body tightness, lower back pain and exercise related injuries are common problems holding many people back from being consistently active and enjoying a life of fitness. It's generally accepted in our culture that these issues are inevitable, especially as you get older, but that's not necessarily true. Most fitness programs and facilities out there are flawed due to its narrow and oversimplified approach to training the human body; being healthy isn't just about losing weight, building massive muscles or increasing your heart rate. We have to look at postural imbalances, movement patterns, joint mobility, stress, core strength, brain functionality, breathing habits and nutrition to get safe, effective results. With an integrated approach to fitness, we set you up with a solid foundation to enjoy physical activity without having to compromise your bodies' long term health.

PERSONAL ASSESSMENT

Personal Assessment

Everyone’s body is different, but we all want to look and feel healthy! Our assessment process identifies any postural issues, pain, or immobility to help you prepare for our onboarding program where you will learn all the tools you need for success in group classes.

BUILDING A FOUNDATION

Building a Foundation

During your first month, we help you to retrain fundamental movement patterns and muscle activation in order to obtain better posture and greater range of motion. We assign you personalized drills to help you rehabilitate your body in order to be more effective in your workouts and to prevent injury.

MASTERING FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENTS

Mastering Functional Movements

Exercise with a purpose! Our workouts get you to move the way the human body was designed to move. Our trainers carefully design classes that not only challenge and push you, but also serves a functional purpose outside of the studio while minimizing risk of injury.

LIVE IN A FIT STATE OF MIND

Live It

Live a healthy lifestyle! Be active. Run, swim, bike, hike, play with your kids! Apply the movements and knowledge you’ve learned to really enjoy life with ease. Accept and conquer all of life’s challenges to find a better and healthier version of you.

what-our-clients-say
  • Fitsom workouts focus on functional movements and emphasize self myofascial release, which I did not realize was so important until I started working out here. I felt my posture and form improve tremendously.

    Christine D. via Yelp
  • Even though training is in a group setting, they are on their toes constantly monitoring everyone to make sure proper form is practiced. I swear they’ve got eyes on the back of their heads.

    Will C. via Yelp
  • These people are completely committed to you and your health. They are intelligent, educated, and continually learning. They bring their unique philosophy and approach to you, and they teach you.

    Jered M. via Yelp
  • After doing classes for a few months, I can honestly say my joints feel much better. My range of motion has increased back to where it was 10 years ago. I just feel great overall.

    Elizabeth J. via Yelp
  • I started to believe that my body mechanics and anatomy was not built for mobility. Since I’ve started at Fitsom, I have improved my mobility far more than I could have ever imagined.

    David K. via Yelp
  • Their whole body/person philosophy and approach is spot on. Start by identifying and healing issues, then build foundation carefully, and then move on to advanced strength.

    Jason W. via Yelp
  • The trainers are extremely knowledgeable and they strive to help you with your goals. You will definitely see results with all your hard work. I highly recommend Fitsom Studios!

    Jessica C. via Yelp
  • The classes are small enough to get individualized attention and motivation from the trainers, with a high energy that still allows you to work to your fitness and comfort level.

    Mark M. via Yelp
