Our approach - Hybrid training: Every person who walks through our doors has a different goal, background, fitness ability, and lifestyle. Our members are all unique so it just makes sense to address those differences with program guidance and coaches that work just for you. At CTOWN, you and your Coach for Life will set your goals to ensure that you derive the most value from your CTOWN experience. Your goals, programming, and progress will be managed by your Coach for Life who will guide you on your lifelong fitness journey. Our Hybrid approach enables you to personalize and customize your experience at CTOWN so that it fits you perfectly in each stage of your life. Getting started is easy:

  • Fundamentals

    CTOWN Fundamentals is our exciting introduction to the world of exercise,  nutrition,  weightlifting, and functional movement. It will prepare you to reach your highest possible level of fitness. 6-10 sessions are typical for anyone who is new to CTOWN, functional fitness and weightlifting methodologies. You and your coach will determine your exact session plan at your first meeting.

    Our primary goal in these one-on-one or small group sessions is to prepare you to join our group classes with confidence and a good base of strength. We will identify your own unique strengths and weaknesses, some of which are yet unknown, to hone preexisting skills and begin to improve on the things that are holding you back from reaching your goals. You will also be matched up with a Coach for Life who will be your fitness and lifestyle mentor. You will learn how to lift safely and efficiently with lighter weights with a focus on developing a strong technical base. We will slowly add more movements and heavier weight once you are ready.

    Each session will end with a metcon (a heart pumping workout) which will allow us to measure your progress. Under our guidance, you’ll have the chance to push yourself and put your new skills to the test. This program brings results! During CTOWN Fundamentals, your body and your mindset will change for the better. We encourage you to take before and after pictures to help capture your transformation.
