About Us


The F.I.T. Lab is a health and fitness company that provides a safe, non-judgmental, familial environment for clients, while simultaneously providing entrepreneurial opportunities for small, women-owned, and BIPOC business professionals.

The Lab, as it is affectionately known, is more than just a fitness facility.  We are a diverse collection of business professionals who intentionally work to create a healthy, more equitable local community.  Addressing health disparities, having a diverse team, and working with diverse business owners are all important parts of the work we do.  We prioritize delivering high-quality service for all our clients and ultimately, we want to be a positive force in the fitness industry and an asset to our community.

Our team consists of certified personal trainers and fitness professionals, yoga instructors, and licensed educators, who work collaboratively with nutrition experts, mental health therapists, and other small business owners.  Collectively, we help our clients reach their goals and create a permanent, healthy lifestyle change.  To do this, we give each client a “personal” training experience that is individualized, motivational, and innovative while providing an environment that is positive, challenging, and supportive. Rather than focus on losing or gaining weight or inches, we focus on helping our clients adopt healthy habits, find balance in their lives, and discover a passion for fitness.

This is NOT your typical gym experience! Spacious floor layout that allows exercise participants to "move" around from one circuit to the next. The trainers are well-educated and provide helpful advice before, during, and after workout sessions.
