Varsity FitnessMessage from the Founder

I promise that VARSITY FITNESS will provide you with an experience that will exceed your expectations. You will not only increase your fitness level substantially, but you will have fun in the process. Our staff will help you develop a program customized to your individual needs and desires and monitor you the whole way. At VARSITY FITNESS, our goal is to not only help you reach your fitness potential but to teach you simple ways to make healthy living a reality.

Varsity Fitness is my dream come true, and I'd like to thank everyone who has helped and supported me over the last twelve years. I would not have been able to do this without your love and encouragement. A special thanks goes out to Sara Hyman, a young lady who was instrumental in helping to develop the concept of Varsity Fitness. VF will always be indebted to Sara. Come to Varsity Fitness, where Fit Happens!
