About CTS

You Just Did The Hard Part – Let Us Take It From Here

It can be confusing and frustrating trying to navigate through the world of fitness and nutrition. Often times the hardest part of any routine is simply showing up and putting in the consistent and necessary work needed to reach a big goal. We aim to eliminate any and all guesswork needed to succeed. All we ask of our members is to simply show up and we’ll take care of the rest.

No more waiting for machines, no more long lines, no more trying to navigate through busy peak hours when it’s impossible to get a quality workout in. At CTS, we take care of everything from programming the workouts to the warm-ups and cool-downs. Our trainers will know your name, you’ll get amazing workouts, you will feel and look better, you’ll make friends, and you’ll reach your goals!
