Friendly staff and excellent equipment for all types of exercise regimens. Trainers are extremely knowledgeable and willing to give advice/tips whenever needed. Not overly populated all at one time, meaning there is room to use any equipment at all times. Muscular recovery/therapy equipment is always available. They provide more than just your average foam roller, such as Gemini MobilityWod, foam rollers with vibration technology, and much more right at your fingertips. More...

This is an awesome place, great variety of equipment, including stuff a commercial gym won't have - tires, punching bag, platforms, buckets of chalk, bumber plates, hex bar, etc. Most of all the trainers are simply the best, they truly care and are highly experienced, always make you feel welcome!

I was worried about going to a gym because I was suffering with sciatica. Tyler made sure I got the support I needed to not only get better, but to feel stronger and healthier every day. He kicks my butt, and I'm grateful for it! The entire staff at Ascension Performance rocks. More...

I used this gym while I was visiting from Florida and was so impressed! Everyone there was nice and welcoming. It was clean, had good music playing, and had everything I needed for a thorough workout. I got to try out some equipment I had never had a chance to use before (like the multi-grip bar). You can tell they put thought into every piece of equipment they purchase and that these guys really know what they’re doing. It would definitely be my home gym if I still lived in CT! More...

I have been dealing with a Rotator cuff tear for approximately 3 years and Sciatica for approximately 13 years( I’m 63). I have been coming to this gym since March. I see the trainer, John, Monday and Friday, go myself on Wednesday . Been steadily getting better, considerable range of motion in shoulder and less leg pain. Mostly stretching with rubber bands and breathing excercises. Will be doing low weight training soon. Nice place , personal attention, very knowledgeable and helpful trainers, highly recommended .

A great old-school training hall!Ascension Performance is a great no-frills gym for people who are serious about building strength and fitness. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, without the typical hard-sell approach common in the fitness industry. If lots of mirrors, rows of cardio equipment and a juice bar are your thing, this might not be the club for you. But if you’re serious about getting stronger and fitter at any level, and you don’t want to pay for unnecessary extras, Ascension is your best option in the area by far. Highly recommend. More...

Love this gym, it's absolutely perfect.
Never a crowd, great selection of equipment and music is much better than a commercial gym. Best of all there are platforms, bumper plates and yes, chaulk is encouraged! More...

Ascension Performance is one of the best gyms I have been too. The staff and owner of the gym all promote growth not just in physique but also mentality. I would recommend this gym to whomever is trying to make a positive change in their life and perhaps needing trainers who are truly dedicated in helping their clients meet their goal. More...

Best investment I’ve made for personal fitness and health. The program that was created for me is helping me drop weight and be able to do things physically that I haven’t done in years. Even my doctors notice the difference. More...

After my ortho surgeries and continued recovery, I thought I was physically a lost cause. I was referred to Ascension. The staff at Ascension are truly amazing. My trainer, Rebecca, worked with all of my injuries, surgeries, bad days, and good days. The support from the other trainers/owner/staff always offered a boost to my recovery and my day. I really have no words to express how much I love and appreciate them. All I can say is thank you and get yourself some. They are all-around the best group of knowledgeable, supportive, and witty trainers one could ask for, and now I now have the privilege to call them friends. More...

When I started at Ascension, I was a TOTAL beginner. I'd worked out before, but I started at Ascension I was at my adult highest weight. I had no balance, and had never seriously lifted any weights before I walked through those doors. My confidence was flatlining, and I needed help. Ascension has helped me overcome my mental and physical challenges for getting back in shape. They are encouraging, supportive, knowledgable, and have shown me how to grow stronger without getting any injuries. No one had ever taken the time to show appropriate stretching, form, or patience with my body before this gym. I am proud to say that I'm seeing significant results, and know that my skills have improved, so that I won't go back. If you are a beginner, or if you are looking to take your performance to the next level, I cannot recommend Ascension enough. More...

I highly recommend joining Ascension Performance as a member or as a client for personal training. Everyone there is so welcoming and motivating! You can really tell everyone who works there has a passion for what they do. Becky, Tyler, Jimmy & Melvin are all very friendly and kind! I've only been going there for three weeks, but after working with Becky and seeing the positive energy at the gym and the progress I've made in only three weeks, I know this is the place I want to be.

I can't emphasize enough how much I love the environment at this gym. The trainers AND the members are motivating and encouraging. I'm currently just a "regular" member, but after watching the trainers interact with their clients in their personal training sessions, I can't wait to start training one-on-one. If you are looking for a break from the crowded, mainstream commercial gyms surprising you with fees, this is definitely the place for you. After just one workout into my free week trial, I was hooked. More...

In the midst of life, the unexpected always happens. Ascension Performance is the exact place everyone should be working out at. Six months ago, I was in a very different head space. I was very down on myself and anxious about ever walking into a gym. Jimmy DeWitt is a miracle worker. He invests all his time into what YOU want and what your body can do. Patient is not even the word to describe him. Every trainer at Ascension helps you based on your needs and more. Not only that, the atmosphere is not your typical gym. Smiles, compassion, and even congrats on making your goals. Since starting, I have lost 25 pounds in a way I could not think possible. I think people have this notion that you are going to walk into a gym and things are going to change in a week. It is a journey and its on you. Going to Ascension has brought this positive side out of me and I can not wait to see what more is to come of it. Six months ago, I would of never thought I would feel the way I do about my health if it were not for the people at Ascension. More...

I love this gym! It's so close to home and has everything I need for my workout. It is important to note, also, the incredible professionalism and enthusiasm that Tyler brought to my introductory appointment when I took a tour of the facility. Tyler, Jimmy, and Mel are always friendly and enthusiastic when I see them around the gym as well. If you are looking for a nice, clean, professional gym that seems to never have a crowd I fully recommend coming here. More...

One of the best decisions I ever made was calling Tyler to set up a training session with him at his fitness center. The center is designed to focus solely on your fitness and desire to better yourself. I truly can't say enough about Tyler; he is very knowledgeable and it is evident he loves what he does. He challenges me at every session I have which has helped me lose weight and feel better about myself. I can even hear him in my mind while I am sitting and walking... "Shoulders back, chest up, abs and glutes tight!" More...

One of THE BEST things my husband and I have ever done for ourselves. We realized that just another gym membership was either going to go unused or we would end up getting nowhere or, worse yet, hurting ourselves. But our lifestyle of car, work, computer, couch, cell phone was taking its toll. We wanted to be healthy and strong and fit enough to enjoy the small amount of free time we have. I can’t imagine being able to achieve that in any greater capacity than at Ascension. You will not find more knowledable, dedicated, truly caring and effective attention to your unique needs and concerns. The team at Ascension is the real deal and like nothing you’ll find at any other fitness facility. (And if you’re an athlete and/or self motivated to make it happen...you need to be here as well. It’s a great facility with great equipment, a great vibe and great people....it’s a great place!) More...

Tyler Shamaly, Jimmy Dewitt,and Rebecca are truly trainers of the HIGHEST caliber.
When I experienced severe piriformis issues and could barely walk, Tyler was KEY in identifying and resolving the issue. His credentials and knowledge are remarkable.
Because of his many talents, I continue to enjoy a most active lifestyle. I am the most flexible I've ever been. He continues to stress postural alignment skills, which enhance my love of ballet and overall daily mobility.
Tyler's energy and personality are infectious. He strives for the BEST in me at every session and does it with encouragement and humor.
My husband has recently been working with Tyler for back, hip and leg issues. He too is most impressed
All in all Assencion Performance is a place not to be missed.
You'll thank yourself every single day.

Love the positive energy. I thought I just needed a trainer to keep me on track. What I have since discovered, thanks to Tyler, was that simple foundational changes would create immediate relief of sore feet and knees from being on my feet for 12 hours a day. The workouts are challenging while being realistic and flexible while on the road. Highly recommend Tyler or any of the trainers on his team. More...

Tyler and Jimmy are two of the most incredible individuals I have ever met. I met them as an injured, completely dysfunctional, "runner" coming off a half marathon with pains in my feet, knees, back, IT bands, you name it. Two months later I am virtually pain free and have strengthened muscles I didn't even know existed (not to mention the gains...!). They are both extremely knowledgeable and passionate about what they do. They are also some of the kindest, level-headed people I have come to know with the most terrific outlook on life, living in the present and letting things go. My life has changed in every way since starting at Ascension Performance and I can't recommend them enough. Rise above! More...

Chronic pain and injuries have been my struggles for pretty much the past 31 years...a car accident at 14, going through the windshield of a car, along with 2 other serious accidents later in life have brought me on an endless journey of physical therapy, herniated discs, immobility and chronic pain. I started training with Tyler 2 1/2 years ago and this has been my longest injury free period, thanks to his corrective exercise techniques. While I don't profess to love deadlifting, nor did I think structurally I would ever be capable of doing it, it has made an enormous difference in my life! Yesterday, I ran a 5k through some of the toughest hills I've ever run. Typically the day after would leave me immobile...being bone on bone from C1 to C7, my neurosurgeon has advised me that running is too traumatic and negatively impactful on my body. I don't believe in self-mutilation, but I agreed to do a triathlon relay with my husband and daughter. Anyway, today I am completely fine after my run...no mobility issues, back, neck and legs are totally fine...this is a profound change for my body. Tyler has truly saved my life in so many ways! Just when you think you can't defy the odds, think again...I've done it! Bring on the deadlifting! �� More...

I thought hitting Planet Fitness once a week would be enough to stay in shape. Boy was I wrong. I needed a serious butt kicking in my life and Tyler was the one I chose to do that. I e-mailed him late one night and received a call within a day. He chatted with me for over 30 minutes about my goals & workout style. We both decided we were a good fit for each other and he offered a complimentary session to better understand how everything works. The workouts are always challenging and fun at the same time. Each time we add a new technique and I could feel results almost immediately. Tyler is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, professional and intelligent. It never ceases to amaze me how dedicated he is to his profession and business. In addition, he asks to see My Personal Fitness app to check my food intake. Tyler is the total package and your personal coach. Do yourself a favor and get in touch. He has an amazing staff and studio (Ascension Performance in Oxford) who can help you achieve your fitness goals. More...
