I bought a Groupon for Commence Fitness with the intention of using it for a nice relaxing Swedish Massage. Prior to arriving at my appointment I suffered from a sacroiliac injury from lifting my grandson's stroller. After weeks of rest, 10 days of an anti-inflammatory, and a cortisone shot I arrived at Commence Fitness in considerable pain. After speaking with Jeff, my relaxation massage went to a therapeutic massage concentrating on my shoulders, neck and SI area. Jeff was absolutely fantastic as he explained what his background was as an exercise physiologist and then becoming a massage therapist also. I could totally see the difference in his techniques in not only the amount of pressure he applied but also in his stretching techniques and his explanation of what he was doing and why. Although I did not feel immediate relief in my SI joint, I do feel a tremendous difference in my shoulders and am practicing better posture after his explanation on how he could see and feel rounding in my upper back. I already booked 5 more sessions with Jeff which I generally do not do after purchasing a Groupon. In my opinion Jeff is not only the consummate professional but generally really cared about helping me to feel better. I do believe with his help, I will be successful in not only alleviating this pain, but will learn how to protect myself from future injury. More...

I have been going to Commence Fitness for a few months now and I can’t stress enough how great it has been. The trainers are terrific and motivating, there has been a noticeable improvement in my physical and mental health. Thanks to Alexis and Commence Fitness I was able to hike the Grand Canyon and experience something bigger than me and I couldn’t have done that without these great people. I whole heartedly recommend Commence Fitness and Commence Kitchen to anyone and everyone. 5 stars ⭐️! More...

I have been going to Commence Fitness for a few months now. I have neck/back pain and have been searching for relief for some time. Jeff is amazing! Not only do I get a deep tissue massage, but he also assists with stretching as well. He even showed me some stretches I can do at home. I highly reccomend! More...

The massage therapist, Jeff Payne, is next level. I continually had lower back issues due to my workout regimen but since Jeff has been treating me over the past 6 months I haven't had any issues whatsoever!

If I could give Commence Fitness 10 stars, I would! I’ve been training with Jeff, and now Alexis, for over a year. They have helped me lose weight and feel better than I have in years!

Jeff has trained me for several months. In that time, he has helped me to lose over 20 pounds, build muscle, and gain flexibility. His workouts are fun and help me to work on my weak areas (stomach and legs) while burning maximum calories. I highly recommend him to anyone needing weight loss advice as well as personal training.
