  • What is Fixed by Fitness?
    Fixed by Fitness (FXF) is a personal training studio where master personal trainers help adults live an overall better quality of life. We're fitness experts who use fitness to help our clients get stronger, decrease daily aches/pains, improve balance, feel healthier, increase energy, and like what they see in the mirror. We also have massage and stretch therapists to complement the work our clients do in the gym.
  • How is Fixed by Fitness different from other gyms or personal trainers?
    Our personal trainers are required to have years of training experience and advanced certifications related to working with our target demographic, including being Corrective Exercise Specialists. We don't have new or inexperienced trainers. We're continuous learners and coaches whose goal is making training enjoyable and informative. The process of becoming a trainer at FXF is highly selective, with only the most qualified trainers being offered a position. In addition to the high quality of training, we find ourselves attracting people who typically are not "gym people." The studio atmosphere is welcoming and not the intimidating experience found at many gyms.
  • Who do FXF trainers work with?
    Typically, our clients are everyday adults in their 30s or older who just want a better quality of life. That includes wanting to look good, feel strong, and be capable without physical limitations. Additionally, we specialize working with people who have recurring aches/pains limiting their ability to function pain-free on a daily basis. We specialize working with middle-age and older adults, but we do work with younger clientele as well.
