Best Gym in Philadelphia

What makes The Summit different from traditional gyms in Philadelphia?

The Summit isn’t like most gyms in Philadelphia. We’re private. That means our members enjoy working out in a private personal training studio, where gym crowds, sweaty, out-dated equipment, and extra gym fees don’t exist. Every gym member who walks through the door at The Summit is given a personal, tailor-made workout from personal trainers with degrees in exercise science. The workouts are 100% tailored to each client to target their individual goals, while also considering their starting fitness level and injuries.

The reviews are in, and they’re glowing. Our clients enter our gyms as strangers and become family. Most of our personal training clients have been with us for several months or years — a testament to our dedication to providing a quality gym experience where health and fitness come together. Try us out, we know you’ll be dying to tell the world about your experience with us too!

All trainers at The Summit have college degrees in exercise science. This means they are experts in human physiology and anatomy, not just trainers who completed a basic weekend certification. Because of their extensive knowledge, they know how to adjust exercises to fit the client’s needs while keeping safety the number one priority. A more educated trainer helps you avoid injury and reach goals faster.

Our studios are convenient with locations in Washington Square and Rittenhouse Square. The Summit couldn’t be easier to find with our proximity to both Rittenhouse and Washington Squares which gives our clients who work or live near the area a private gym to focus on getting results. Going to the gym is no longer an inconvenience with locations steps away from home.

Schedule workouts on your time without being a slave to your gym’s class schedule. The Summit offers flexible training times for our clients, so you train when it’s most convenient. Life can be busy, which is why we offer 30 or 60-minute training trainer led workouts that are efficient and completed within a short time, so you can get in and out with time to spare, without wasting countless hours at the gym waiting for equipment or deciding what to do next.

Contracts can be intimidating and a drag to get out of. At The Summit, our clients enjoy the ease of having month-to-month billing packages. Our philosophy is to keep our clients coming back because they see results, not because they’re locked into a long term contract. Clients are in full control of their billing profile so they can adjust or cancel their personal training packages whenever they like.

More Reasons To Join Philly’s Leading Gym

Professional, Extensive Gym Equipment

The high end equipment you’ll find in our boutique gyms will take your workouts to the next level. If you experience knee pain and you want to work your legs and glutes, performing regular squats may be difficult for you to do at the gym on a regular basis.  At The Summit, you’ll have access to several pieces of equipment, like a leg press, glute kickback, hip thrust, and more to engage the muscles of your legs and glutes in a more safe and effective manner.  

We choose only the highest quality equipment to make your movements smoother and more effective. Choosing higher quality equipment means the machines are more ergonomically correct, you experience less joint pain, and you’ll feel it in all the right places. 

More Importantly – Learn To Work Out Correctly

Yes, the gym equipment at your disposal matters, but it’s how you use it that yields results. Stop wasting time watching videos and reading blogs, and take advice directly from an expert.

Firstly, you will learn how to perform each rep perfectly. Our trainers have degrees in exercise science, tested each movement themselves, and trained extensively. They will help you execute both simple and complex movements like squats, rows, and leg extensions correctly. As you get stronger, you can tackle more challenging lifts that you may not want to attempt on your own at a large gym or at home.

Poor form will limit muscle growth, waste your time, and possibly lead to a significant injury. Working out at a private gym in Philadelphia will keep your workouts safe, effective, and efficient.

Secondly, you’ll learn exactly which exercises to do, and in what order. Depending on your goals or baseline strength, your body will need different routines, and that’s what we’re here for. In short, the trainers at The Summit have spent years studying exercise science so you don’t have to. Tell us what you would like to accomplish and your ideal workout schedule, and we’ll set you up with the right exercises on optimal equipment for you.

An Uplifting Space For You To Push Your Limits

The Summit values the quality of our client’s workouts, and to that end, we have designed a modern, beautiful workout studio for you to enjoy. It’s easier to push your physical limits in an attractive space, and we want you to enjoy every minute at The Summit, even if you are putting your body through a rigorous workout. We also have private, clean, and pleasant locker room facilities for our clients.

More Than a Gym – Get an Exercise Education

The Summit community is full of intelligent, successful individuals, and we love answering their questions about how the body works. You’ll learn why we assign different exercises, and you’ll leave each workout with a better understanding of how muscle growth works and how you can maintain a healthy weight with a knowledge base to keep it that way. By investing in your fitness and your knowledge of how fitness works, you’ll be able to use that knowledge for future workout gains.

For Maximum Results, Leave Working Out At Home Behind

Joining The Summit will help you get better results more quickly. Here are a few reasons why:

  • Scheduled workouts will help you stick to your routine
  • Working with an expert trainer gives you a level of built-in accountability
  • You will learn how to maximize your workout time with correct technique and equipment
  • Our beautiful gym spaces will make your workouts energizing and uplifting

The Summit is a private gym. This means only personal trainers and their clients are in the studio, which leads to less distractions and more results.
