Destination Fitness is where one begins and continues their journey to achieve optimal strength and conditioning, learn how to fuel and heal their body with true nutrition, and experience the benefits of lifelong wellness. With our personal training program (S.M.A.R.T. FIT) , we have been guiding this journey for our fitness community (everyone here is basically extended family members, we don’t have clients!) for over 20 years! To enhance the journey, we encourage complimentary activities and provide additional innovative wellness programs and workshops that can be added to our S.M.A.R.T. FIT program like our Belly Dancing workshop and discounted 1:1 (private) personal training.
