Fitness University is a great workout. The trainer/owner Ron Thompson is very knowledgeable on working the different muscles. He knows the common trouble areas for women and he designs his workouts to tackle those areas. Best price in town. Come visit at 5 am or 6 pm. More...

I have been attending classes at Phlex Fitness/Michael Nicholson hip hop fitness for about three years now, and I look forward to it every week. Not only are there multiple locations to choose from, the music is censored so that kids can dance as well! My endurance is so much higher since hip hop, and if it weren’t for Nicole on Tuesday mornings I wouldn’t know what to do with myself! More...

Love Ron's classes! 10/10 would recommend. Stopped taking classes at Orange Theory to come here instead. It's a million times more fun and a much better, well-rounded workout.

The exercises constantly change. However, there's still consistency of working the entire body on a regular basis. The structure of the class is easy flowing & I love how cardio is incorporated in the workout.

I started taking classes a few weeks ago and love the diversity of the workouts. Always challenging yet fun. As someone with back issues, I can always count on a modification if I dont feel comfortable with the exercise. That kind of flexibility is important to me. I see the positive body changes in others taking the class. I had to be a part of that too! Always greeted with a smile! More...

It's definitely helped me get my groove back after having my first baby. The class schedules work fabulously with my hectic life and I am so lucky for that. Being able to work out early in the morning and to put in 110% is where it's at. If you want a challenge, but have a blast doing it; Fitness University is the place to be. More...

I never thought I would enjoy a boot camp class let alone getting up at 4:30 in the AM. Now after almost a year I can say I truly enjoy Ron’s class and don’t mind the early mornings. I also love the way Ron mixes up workouts so you won’t get bored, and he not only offers early morning classes but evenings also. I’m one happy customer and hopefully you will be too! Join us!

Fitness University is TRUE to its name! The constant mix of different exercises allows your mind AND body to grow and allow for a constant METAMORPHOSIS! Plateau What's that ! To add Icing to the cake --Ron is an amazing teacher/ instructor. He is extremely knowledgable about the body, and is super energetic. If you're looking for a push you will find it here. Something that sets him apart from other instructors is the fact that he will dive in and do the workout with you, which is super encouraging when you're on your last ounce of energy! If you're looking for a change, come out and have some fun with us !! More...

Fitness University has been the perfect addiction... I mean addition to my workout regimen. People of all ages, weights and skill levels will feel confident that they are getting an effective workout because Ron makes sure that you're not only doing the exercise right but that you are working to your potential! Don't be afraid to try something new, to go up in weight etc because there is an amazing group of fellow members to support you. Highly recommended!! More...

I've been attending fitness university for a little over a year.  I have seen a change in my endurance as well as my waistline.  Although I HATE it when Ron stays on me, I LOVE it as well.  He pushes me pass what I think is my potential and I continuously reach new heights.  No one would have told me last year that I would be able to lift weights, do real push ups, push and pull sand bags and run miles; let alone do 100 bicycles(smiles). Not only do I look better and people notice the change, I feel better. KUDOS to Ron and Fitness University More...

I have been coming to Fitness University since the winter of last year and can not say enough of how much I enjoy and have seen results since starting! The trainer over the program, Ron, is very thorough, innovative and a great teacher in health and wellness. It is a boot camp style of small group workout that I do but he also offers individual training. He also is a licensed massage therapist in which I see clients of his frequent because of muscle tensions from weight lifting etc. The sessions are not monotonous so my body is never used to doing the same reps and excercise. Because the weather has warmed up he has utilized the outdoors for us to do our workouts which I find to be helpful and a wave of fresh air from all the sweat! Lol.We use battle ropes, tires, sandbag, free weights, resistance bands, trx, gigantic tires, basically anything you can name for this well equipped facility. The price is vey reasonable $50/month unlimited sessions. Sessions throughout the week are 5am-6am and evenings either 5pm-6pm or 6 pm-7pm. Saturdays it is at 8am-9am. Or you can just do a $10 drop in fee. Can't beat that. I definitely recommend him to anybody to try out! More...

Q&As

We support our members by creating muscle confusion workouts, help with nutrition, and our famous midterm and final strength and conditioning tests.

In a word.....Consistency! You must be discipline in your diet and your workout as well as your recovery.

I love watching people become addicted to exercise. When the learn everything from the moves to the jargon. When the trainer doesn’t have to demonstrate anymore because the member is holding themselves accountable.

None of my grandparents lived past their sixties, mostly due to ailments caused by lack of proper diet and exercise. I want to break that cycle and help others do the same.

You should choose Fitness University because we offer the most comprehensive fitness in the world. Personal training, variety in workouts, nutrition guidance, and massage therapy. All for the most competitive prices in the industry!
