What is the HIT Center?


The Fusion of Science and Sport

HIT stands for High Intensity Training. HIT Center programs are based on an extensive pre-program assessment. We teach clients how to exercise, get extremely fit, and lose weight. Our personal training sessions are actually learning sessions for the client.

What the HIT Center is not, is a “fitness center”.

Clients will quickly recognize that the procedures and protocols here are much different than the gym across town. Weight loss, fitness, and athletic development programs have long-advocated high volume, high repetition, low-intensity workouts . From a scientific perspective, this makes no sense. The HIT Center's approach is different. By creating high intensity programs designed to prevent over training and decrease injury rate, maximum improvement can be achieved in a short, very intense period of time.
