Our Members Put ‘Fitness First’

Whether members are looking to lose weight, train for an upcoming event or simply maintain a healthy lifestyle, a Charter Fitness membership provides everything they need to reach their goals. Our clubs offer state-of-the-art equipment including Life Fitness and Precor, a comfortable and inviting workout environment and access to specialized, results-oriented training programs.

The Charter Fitness Personal Training program provides additional value to every membership. Our personal trainers receive extensive training and are provided the necessary tools to develop programs customized around every individual’s needs. Programs progress through phases which keep the workouts challenging, exciting and innovative.

And unlike other fitness clubs, we have moved to a larger box of 16,000 – 20,000 square feet. These new clubs have rewarded us with higher sales and more importantly higher profits. It’s this new model we intend to grow and expand with future franchise partners.
