I walked by the academy for awhile and finally stopped in and glad I did. The coaches are really knowledgeable and it’s never very crowded. This is a huge plus for me as I rarely take group classes and prefer to work out on my own!
This place has really helped me gain strength and get in way better shape. I’ve been coming to CT fit for about a year. The trainers are amazing. I didn’t really know what I was doing as far as weight training but they’ve really helped and developed my fitness goals.
As someone who has a physically demanding job I tried going to the gym by myself after work and never really made it in. Discouraged, I signed up for CT FIT and couldn’t be happier. Everyone is positive, and the people really make the program special.
