Best Gym in Philadelphia

What makes The Summit at Rittenhouse different from traditional gyms in Philadelphia?

The Summit at Rittenhouse 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.

Schedule workouts on your time without being a slave to your gym’s class schedule. The Summit at Rittenhouse 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.


All trainers at The Summit at Rittenhouse 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.


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.


Nutrition is half the battle. We help pair you with a registered dietitian to give you even better results. A personalized workout and diet will have you reaching and maintaining your goals much faster and safer, all while under the roof of our private gym. Our registered dietitians in Philadelphia have a passion for educating clients about nutrition based on factual evidence, not gimmicky trends, so you can be assured your diet will be safe.


The reviews are in, and they’re glowing. Our clients enter our gym in Center City as strangers and become family.
