A New Fitness

Steel Fitness is not just about getting “Fit”. We are a family owned and operated business where we use science and experience to help you gain mobility & strength as well as help you lose weight and feel your best at any age. Our class size is small in order utilize more complex movements that can’t be part of larger group settings. While cardio may be one small aspect of what we do, our main focus is to help you move your body, recover from injury or chronic pain and reach new strength goals, all while working with your body’s dynamic movements. Utilizing muscles that will help you improve your physical appearance as well as your overall quality of life and ability to move and keep up, that is what Steel Fitness is all about.

The gym



Class offerings vary from day to day and client-to-client. Visit our classes page to learn more about group training sessions, weight lifting, and metabolic conditioning.

Results take time and commitment. Following a free strategy session, prospective clients will be asked to sign a year-long contract. However, we don’t want anyone to feel locked in. With 30-day notice, any client membership may be canceled at any time.

We will operate a purpose-built training facility, not an open gym. Clients will never be left unattended or feeling uncertain of their fitness plan. This detailed diagnostic approach and supervised implementation will help to deliver exceptional experiences and dramatic results.

We cap the classes at 8 people to maintain a safe and productive workout environment.
