Performance Fitness Training’s mission is to help all our clients overcome their limitations and amaze themselves with what they can achieve. We provide the tools to create and maintain a healthy and active lifestyle, regardless of age, and work to help our clients improve their physical strength, mobility, appearance, and performance for a better quality of life. We operate in facilities in Harrisburg, Mechanicsburg, Carlisle, and Hanover. We offer Virtual Personal Training for for local clients seeking that convenience and those that live outside our geographical proximity.
We’ve always been fitness and nutrition buffs, and believed in the power of personal training. However, we noticed some serious gaps between what many gyms promised, and what they could ultimately deliver. We saw that trainers would often no-show because either they were completely independent and unreliable, or their company would overbook them. We saw that results were promised, but not measured thoroughly enough to say they were achieved with confidence. And we knew that South Central Pennsylvania deserved better.
So, we started Performance Fitness Training in 2008, bringing loyal and reliable personal trainers to the community along with a scientific approach to fitness and nutrition. Our trainers can boast true success with testimonials that use measurable data nad undeniable photos of the results we’ve helped our clients earn. We bring the knowledge and encouragement, and our clients bring their bodies and willpower. Together, we create plans that transform physical health, self-confidence, and quality of life.
