About Us: Who We Are and Why We Want To Help You

At The Body You Want, we hope to be more than just a place where you have a membership. We feel strongly about fitness and what it can do in your life, and we want to help you get the most out of your time with us.

We started our family-owned club in 2004. Our mission is simple: We want to change the way fitness is done. Everyone who is considering a membership is given the option to try our 14-Day Personal Training Experience. We feel we have the best club in town, but talk is cheap—we want you to meet our staff and give us a chance to earn your loyalty!

Our Mission: Changing The Way Fitness Is Done

We’re taking this process called fitness and doing it the way we feel is the right way. What that comes down to is three very simple ideas:

  1. The fitness business should be the life changing business, not the equipment rental business
  2. We should have people do things that actually work
  3. Fitness professionals should actually be professionals
