THE Aspire Fitness STORY

Brian Bott - Founder

At Aspire Fitness it is our mission to create an environment and culture in our gym that best promotes the success of each of our members.

Having both worked in traditional big box gyms, we became increasingly frustrated with the emphasis of flooding the gym with cheap memberships that rely on the member not showing up to make the business work. So we set out to make a change.

Every member at Aspire Fitness is a VIP. Whether you just take group classes, train privately 4 times per week with a coach, or are just dropping in for a workout with a friend, we guarantee that our coaches and staff are there to make sure you are getting closer to your goals.

All of our members receive some level of coaching on proper planning, mindset, as well as nutrition to ensure we are choosing the best strategy to help them reach their goals.

Additionally, anytime that you come in to Aspire Fitness you will have a coach available to assist you. Whether you are in a session, taking a class, or doing your program on your own there is always a coach available to help.

To ensure we are delivering the highest level of service possible we are continually improving upon our education. All Aspire Fitness coaches attend 4 seminars each year. In addition to this, each year we close the gym for 2 days and pay for our team to go the Perform Better Training Summit in Providence Rhode Island. If a better way to deliver client’s results is developed, you can be sure you that we will be studying it, mastering it, and implementing it for our members.

Finally, we believe fitness is for everyone and should better your life OUTSIDE of the gym. Regardless of age or ability if you are committed to a better you and willing to make change, we are committed to providing you a challenging but fun and safe environment to do so.
