Our story

aptitude performance center

We were stuck delivering the generic "workout of the day" class designed by a franchise  it wasn't helping members reach their goals. Whether they were rehabilitating an injury, training for a sport, or simply getting back into shape, we knew it wasn't enough. So, we took matters into our own hands and opened Aptitude Performance Center.

Aptitude Performance Center is more than a place to work out. We are a thriving fitness community that offers detailed, programatic strength and conditioning formats to reach peak performance.
