    “I have learned that I am capable of going beyond my expectations, even at my age! Luigi has literally changed my life, he has pushed me beyond what I ever thought was possible; for that I will forever be grateful. I feel stronger, more confident and convinced that I can face any challenge head on, and maybe win!”

  • Jack H the fit institute

    “I enjoyed witnessing, and physically feeling the progress that I made through the process. It was very satisfying to feel myself become stronger and to strengthen all of the weakened muscles from my injury. I will be taking away a new understanding of myself physically and lots of knowledge about muscles, form, breathing, lifting & much more.”

  • I have been working with Ryan LeFever at TFI for the past several months and have seen significant progress with my lower calf and ankle.  Ryan is my third physical therapist in the last 12 months. After battling gait issues, ankle and calf issue and recovering from a hernia surgery my body was quite a mess.  Ryan has been extremely in tune in pinpointing issues that other physical therapist missed and is engaged and extremely knowledgeable!  The rest of the staff is great and very friendly.  I highly recommend working with Ryan if you are in need of recovering from a sports injury or want to get back to high performance sports or weight training. Extremely happy with this group!

  • I found the Fit Institute after a lower back injury had left me in chronic pain for several months. Working with Stephanie and the FIT Institute team, my strength and mobility quickly improved and the pain, through targeted therapy and exercise, began to subside. I now enjoy pain-free days, and in the bargain, I lost weight and gained overall muscle tone. Stephanie is a consummate professional, a skilled therapist who creates individualized recovery plans that are highly effective. Stephanie and the entire Fit Institute team–an incredibly knowledgeable, supportive, and friendly group–create an atmosphere of trust and motivation that accelerates the healing process. If you’re looking for results, then go to the Fit Institute.

  • Last November 2017 i was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. Spent the better part of 3 months laying on the couch, walking with a cane, sleepless nights, and unusually for me…a less than sunny disposition. With the help of the greatest physical therapist team in the business, I spent spring break hiking Red Rock Canyon Vegas, Zion national Park and the Grand Canyon. Go visit my friends at The Fit Institute, they will cure what ails you! #TFI

  • I’ve had the pleasure of seeing the owners and staff, working with patients and athletes to take their fitness to the next level. Luigi is a really great trainer and has a multi disciplinary team to address any need you may have! Highly recommend!

  • Had a tremendous experience with the folks at the FIT Institute. Stephanie just might be a miracle worker. I really felt like they took the time to get to know what my issues were, which was such a relief because I had been having issues for so long and avoiding therapy because of a few negative experiences I had in the past at other places. She was constantly asking for feedback and adapting the exercises to match my responses to the treatment. The facilities are modern, clean, and first class, and the entire staff is welcoming and extremely helpful. Couldn’t be happier to recommend Stephanie and the rest of the gang at the Fit Institute.

  • Its been terrific working with Luigi. As an older woman with a couple of injuries I really needed to get back into shape but was cautious about hurting myself again. I’ve really been challenged but have never felt hesitant about this exercise regime because of his expertise. Its actually spurred me to more exercise.

  • My daughter is a gymnast and was originally attending TFI for an injury prevention program. I believe that having my daughter attend this program helped her to stay healthy and high performing especially given the intensity of her training/competition season. I would highly recommend TFI for your physical therapy needs!

    Therese A.

  • Beautiful facility with an amazing functional training area! Overall great experience with very knowledgeable staff. I will continue to refer as many of my patients here as possible!.

  • I have worked with Luigi for several years now and he is nothing short of amazing. By training with him, I have reached the best physical shape of my life. He caters to my specific needs and creates a personalized workout routine that has allowed me to vastly improve my physical capabilities. Throughout every workout, safety is his number one priority. He always ensures that I properly warm up and that every exercise I perform is with the proper form and amount of weight. He pushes me hard to become stronger, but always in a safe and positive way. In addition to helping me improve my overall physical capabilities, he provided me with sport specific training. Luigi created soccer specific routines and greatly improved my fundamentals and ball handling. Thanks to The FIT Institute I am in the best physical shape of my life and have had the opportunity to meet some amazing people. Anybody wishing to get into shape, I highly recommend TFI. Everyone is amazing and they will undoubtedly help you reach your goals!!

The training sessions are great. My personal training with Luigi, has been an invaluable investment in my overall health and well-being. Keep up the great work!

  • I’ve been a member at multiple gyms, but this is my favorite by far. Clean, friendly, and great amenities, there’s no reason to go elsewhere. I can’t recommend this place anymore highly.- 10 stars

    Kevin D.

  • When FIT opened in summer 2016, my daughter was struggling with Sever’s disease (heel pain) from gymnastics, and we were making costly visits over to Children’s for physical therapy. We soon switched to FIT and since then have been there on an ongoing basis for a number of gymnastics related aches and pains. Their care has been exceptional, friendly, personalized, educational, and much lower cost than at Children’s! We hope that our daughter does not need PT in 2018, but if she does, there is only one place we would take her – FIT!

  • I have been working out with Luigi at the FIT Institute for over 6 months now and have had great results. The facility is great. It has all the equipment you could ever need and they do a great job of keeping everything clean. Luigi has been awesome to work with. He creates new challenging workouts for every session and is really supportive as you push through them. My body has changed significantly in a short time which has me even more excited to keep going. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking to get back into shape or trying to take it to the next level.

  • I highly recommend that you talk to the team at the FIT Institute if you have any injuries, even if you’ve given up on your situation.

    This is a modern healthcare facility staffed by a very knowledgable and talented group of people.

    I have had several injuries that sent me to physical therapy throughout the last 18 years and this is by far the best outcome and experience I’ve ever had for the following reasons:

    • The staff is very knowledgable and clearly have a passion for their work
    • Excellent facilities with all the equipment needed
    • Everyone is friendly and caring. They happily listen to what I’m dealing with and provide thoughtful solutions
    • They were able to resolve long-standing problems that other healthcare professionals had told me were permanent issues

    The physical therapist I worked with, Stephanie Ferro, is incredibly knowledgable and thoughtful. She is in a league of her own.

    Wally I.

  • I am a gym member at The FIT Institute. Few months back, I twisted my angle and was unable to do regular workouts. Stephanie Ferro, the physical therapist at the FIT did a great job in doing the initial assessment (which was free of cost) and recommended me to see a doctor. That helped to identify and treat the hairline fracture. Afterwards she helped with the PT which helped in regaining the strength and control of my angle join. Now I am able to do my regular gym workouts without any issues. Stephanie is very knowledgeable and was willing to provide her service that fits my schedule. I would definitely recommend this place for anyone looking for a PT who is very professional and friendly.

  • My daughter is a competitive gymnast and has gone to FIT for personal assistance with injuries as well as a preventative group class. I like that they focus both on healing her injuries as well as helping her understand her body and how she can prevent injuries moving forward. They have always been accommodating with my daughter’s busy schedule, which is greatly appreciated.

    David P.

  • I am a pretty serious athlete in my late 20’s. After years of struggling with knee issues, I spent the past winter working at TFI and I feel better than any time in my 20’s. I’m stronger, faster, balanced, more symetrical, and just feel better in most ways. I would recommend TFI for any athlete that has a limitation or imbalance they need to work on.

  • Going to TFI was the best thing I could have done for my ankle injury. I was paired up with Steph for my PT program. She was attentive, knowledgeable, and excellent at explaining both how to do my exercises and WHY we were doing them. She always took time to check in, made adjustments to my program when needed, and helped me get back to full performance. They also have an app for your phone that makes the home exercises really easy to keep up with. The entire staff is friendly and everyone knew my name. I can honestly say that I was a little bit sad when I “graduated” from my program! I never thought going to PT could be such a positive experience!

    Elaine H.

  • I have been going to the FIT Institute for close to two years now. I love it and love all the staff! Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. It’s like visiting friends when I go. They explained my issue clearly and what I appreciate most is that they made me exercise properly. I learned to focus on the muscles I was working on and made me pay attention to proper form. Those lessons have stuck with me even now after my physical therapy.

    Luigi is a great guy as well. He’s always in a great mood and makes you motivated to workout.

    The entire space is always spotless and well maintained. They have an abundance of available classes throughout the week. The rooftop yoga is incredible. Danielle is an inspirational instructor that makes anyone at any skill level feel at home. My first yoga class was with the FIT. I was unsure if it was for me but I have been to almost ever class since they started the sessions. The rooftop is like being in a 5 Star Hotel. So cool!

    I can’t recommend the FIT enough!

    Steve B.

  • Our ten year-old needed something more intense than physical therapy, with an eye on personal training. Keeping him interested and motivated was very important. When we found the FIT Institute and Luigi, it was a great fit. We chose one-on-one instruction, twice a week. With Luigi’s help our son has achieved goals that he wouldn’t necessarily have reached at home or with a physical therapist. Luigi and the rest of the staff are very professional, they keep kids working very hard while having some fun. The facility is amazing, high-quality new equipment, fit for a professional sports team. Highly recommend one-on-one sessions with the staff. I will be returning.

    Mike K.

  • Even though I am not an athlete, I truly appreciate how respectful and professional the entire staff is. The attention and care they provided me during my recovery was top-notch. I highly recommend this facility and will be coming back when I have my next surgery. Thanks

  • I came to FIT with shoulder pain and limited mobility. The physical therapist at FIT was excellent at identifying my needs and setting up a training routine that quickly started to improve my condition. Within their prescribed amount of time I had full use of my should again and an easy to maintain exercise program I could do on my own. Great staff and super friendly.

  • I have worked with a number of trainers in the past and Luigi tops them all, for sure in a class of his own. He runs a fitness center that is focused on personal training and PT.  It is the opposite of what you think of when you think of going to a “gym”.  It’s compact, yet a facility that has everything you need.  Luigi is SO good as a trainer.  He will kick your butt and you won’t know it until the session is over.  For me, his ability to guide me and get me to work hard without being too intense and “drill sergeant-esque” is what makes it work for me.  I look forward to my weekly workouts.  And he is flexible… my schedule changes weekly and he always finds a way to squeeze me in if our weekly time doesn’t work out.  He’s so knowledgeable such that, even with me being a nurse and knowing the body’s anatomy, I still learn from him and can apply that to my workouts.  If you are looking for a new workout solution and a great trainer, Luigi is your man. Regardless of your goals, he adapts and works with you to achieve them.  Highly recommend him!

  • I have been going regularly to the small group training classes at FIT Institute for 18 months and they are the most entertaining, engaging, and intense workouts I have ever experienced and I have been working out regularly for 20 years. The classes combine the intensity of a Shred or  Orange Theory with the personalized attention of individual personal training coupled with the comradery of a small group environment. Their classes are perfectly planned full body workouts that combine cardio and strength training. I highly recommend FIT if you want a super friendly workout environment that pushes you towards your fitness goals.

    Rob H.

  • I cannot say enough regarding the wonderful experience I had with The FIT Institute team. The facility is always clean with safe storage available in the locker rooms. I worked with Stephanie Ferro DPT who was both hands on with my recovery and one of the nicest people I have ever met. In fact, the whole team at FIT are friendly and knowledgeable. They really care about connecting to their patients and getting them back to 100%.

    I would like to say, Thank You to the whole team that worked with me on getting my knee back. You all are the best!
