The Summit at Rittenhouse


Everyone’s fitness journey is different. While one person may be trying to slim down, another person may be trying to bulk up. Ultimately though, fitness success lies in a couple of common factors and they are hard work, consistency, and a healthy, balanced diet. Sounds simple enough right? Go to the gym, work hard, and eat right. For some, this basic equation for fitness success is easy, but for others – not so much.

For those who struggle to stay consistent, need that extra push in the gym, and/or can’t seem to find that spark of motivation to crush their goals, that’s where a personal trainer can help.

At The Summit Fitness Studio, our trainers are here to make sure you reach your fitness goals. From custom-tailored workout programs to a never-ending supply of motivation, we push our clients to be the best they can be and have a blast while doing it! If you’ve been on the fence and can’t decide if a personal trainer is right for you, take a look at the many reasons why teaming up with a personal trainer is so important to fitness success.


Success in the gym really relies on consistency. That means getting up, getting to the gym, and finishing your workout each and every day. However, if you’re like most people, the motivation just isn’t there some days. You’re lying in your cozy bed, it’s raining out, and that pint of ice cream in the refrigerator is calling your name.

When you have a personal trainer waiting for you at the gym, skipping out on your workouts becomes a lot harder. A personal trainer is not only going to hold you accountable for how hard you’re working out, but also for how well you’re eating.

Bye Bye Plateaus

We all hit a point in our fitness journey where we get comfortable with our workouts and our bodies stop responding, a.k.a — the scale doesn’t budge. In situations like this, a personal trainer is key. After working with a personal trainer for some time, they will get to know you, your body, and your abilities, and they will push you just hard enough so that you continue to improve. Plateaus are almost non-existent when you follow the instructions of your trainer.

Safety & Knowledge

If you’re new to fitness and exercise, it can be very intimidating walking into a gym where it seems like everyone is at home but you. After fumbling around on a couple of machines, you decide to call it quits and go home after only 20 minutes.

If you’re serious about your fitness journey and are looking for results, the safety and knowledge that comes with a personal trainer are invaluable. A personal trainer is going to correctly and safely teach you the proper exercise form for maximized results. Too often people perform exercises wrong or have bad form, which not only increases their risk for injury, but also seriously diminishes their chances of reaching their goals. By having the only staff in Philadelphia made up of personal trainers with degrees in exercise science, The Summit Fitness Studio can boast that we keep our clients safer than any other gym or studio in Philadelphia.
