Accelerated Fitness is not your ordinary gym, our approach to fitness and wellness is what sets us apart from other health clubs and  gyms out there. What’s our approach you ask? We don’t  just do goals. Why? Once a goal is met all the momentum and motivation comes to a dead stop.

This is why people gain the weight back. Start smoking again. You name it. Accelerated Fitness Club uses a model designed to last.  We use a SYSTEMS based approach to make it a lifestyle. A goal is temporary. Systems are for life. We will show you how to gain and sustain great health and wellbeing for life.

Mission Statment

Our mission is to help individuals in our community improve their health and achieve their fitness goals. Our programming produces results in a fun, supportive and encouraging environment.
