- You will feel your absolute best.
- You won't get hurt.
- You will have fun!

Elevate Your TrainingWhen was the last time you had FUN working out? Hours on the treadmill or elliptical? BORING!!! Grinding through endless sets and reps of the same single-joint machines? USELESS!!! You never do ANY real life movement that resembles traditional gym exercises. Our innovative, total-body exercises are truly cutting edge, utilizing the latest scientific research and technique. Guaranteed one of a kind workouts that you've never done before. By using more muscles and full body movements in every exercise, you burn more calories, gain more strength, and get better results in a shorter time. This is REAL FUNCTIONAL TRAINING for REAL life. AND IT'S FUN!!!!!
ViPR is the latest and most cutting-edge modality. It can be lifted, dragged, thrown, stepped on, and pretty much any movement you can think of. Completely functional and totally cool. Fun and INCREDIBLY effective. Hundreds of exercises, thousands of varieties.
Work like an athlete, but feel like a kid, this is the best of the best in bodyweight training. Deceptively difficult, suspension training combines balance and strength to work large muscles, small muscles, stabilizing muscles, and core muscles all at the same time. Voted "Best Total Body Tool" by Men's Health Magazine.
One of our favorite tools, sandbag training is like wrestling a cat - if by cat you mean a 600lb Siberian Tiger with Ninja training. Shifting weight requires constant adaptation. Sandbag workouts not only utilize your large muscle groups, but also additional muscles which are never targeted by conventional training methods. Sandbag training allows unique functional combinations which are unlike any other implement. More muscles working equals optimal metabolic conditioning, sans Ninja Tiger can-o-whoopass.
In 1 minute, get the heart rate and metabolic benefit of 10 minutes of traditional cardio in this full body, non-impact workout. One of the best conditioning exercises out there, MMA fighters and boxers love this modality. And because it's non-impact, you get a great workout even if you have joint issues or limitations. Fun times had by all!
Unlike dumbbells, as the kettlebell moves away from your center of gravity, more muscles (primary, stabilizers, core) become involved in each movement. Build a stronger core and more fit, functional, powerful body with these "new" weights, which were actually developed in Russia over 50 years ago. The Russians have won quite a few gold medals, so they probably know what they're doing. "Russians don't do bouncy-bouncy on BOSU. Russians core train with kettlebells. Strong like bull, make good muscle." (Russian accent to be provided by reader)
When was the last time you saw a fat lumberjack (besides the ones who drink their weight in beer)? Work out your aggressions and get a full body workout at the same time. Gain muscular strength, a phenomenal core, vastly improve your conditioning, and have fun all at once. Who knew something so basic could be so effective?
Jungle Gym - Functional Training System
Remember playing on the jungle gym at recess? Well, it's back, better than ever, and adult sized. Scamper across the monkey bars and cargo nets, throw your weight around with the Landmine, climb ropes, tug-of-war with your classmate, all while re-acclimating your body to the functional movement patterns we often lose as adults. It's time to have fun like a kid, while burning fat like an adult!
Not unlike wrestling an ocelot, maintaining equilibrium with a pipe filled with water requires an unbelievable amount of core strength and neuromuscular adaptation. Why would you choose to do this voluntarily? The more large muscle incorporation and neural load an exercise requires, the better the results of the workout. Try slosh pipes once, and you'll wonder why you ever thought crunches were a good idea!
These are just a few of the many fun and functional training implements we use to get the best results safely. But don't just take our word for it. Come in and try them all out for yourself today!

Elevate Your Green
Our members drive Elevated Fitness. They make everything go. No, seriously. By using inverter-equipped spin bikes which deliver electricity back to the grid, our members provide the electricity which powers the lights, computers, fans, etc., making Elevated one of only two truly sustainable, human-powered facilities in the country, and one of five on the planet. After a tough workout, you'll leave feeling good about yourself and your impact on the planet. How cool is that?!
But wait, there's more
From the ground up, Elevated is green on every level. From flooring made from recycled tires, to low-VOC paint, to energy efficient lighting, to low-flow toilets, we practice what we preach. Where most gyms are behemoths with rows of energy sucking cardio equipment, TV's, air conditioning, competing sound systems, vending machines, etc., Elevated is designed to deliver unparalleled results while maintaining the lowest carbon footprint possible.
Just as everything in the human body is interconnected, so is the ecology of our planet. If every person in every gym throws away one plastic water bottle per workout, we will, as a nation, fill a landfill daily. The change starts with all of us. As one of many green initiatives, Elevated offers one of the only bottle-services of any gym, eliminating plastic bottle waste. We also offer a towel service which eliminates paper towel waste and ensuing deforestation.

NutritionDo you feel like there's a new diet fad every day, or just on nutrition overload? Tired of hearing, "Oh, you should try 'Insert ridiculous, guaranteed to fail, diet name here'. My sister is on it and lost a ton of weight. She's super anemic, has osteopenia, and faints all the time, but at least she's skinny, right?" We wouldn't wish a fad diet on our worst enemy. There's a better way!

ELEVATE YOUR MRTAll of our classes are based on metabolic resistance training (MRT). MRT is a superior workout which TRULY combines strength and conditioning for optimum impact on your overall fitness and metabolism. A medium 45 minute jog on a treadmill while reading a magazine is NOT conditioning. Do this exercise in futility long enough and it will actually have a NEGATIVE impact on your metabolism! Lifting pink dumbbells (or any color, for that matter) is NOT strength. For anyone other than professional power-lifters named Magnus or Sven, pushing out a few reps then chatting with your buddies for the next 10 minutes is NOT strength.
Elevate Your Class
This class is true MRT: a group of selective dynamic full body movements performed in periods of high intensity intervals followed by short recovery. Circuits are timed-based, with lighter weight, to focus on fat loss, speed, and power. >>View Schedule>>
Similar to Ele-CONDITION, but with a focus on building strength (huge surprise here, given the name). Circuits are repetition-based, with heavier weight, to focus on strength and EPOC (post workout oxygen consumption), keeping your metabolism roaring days after your workout. >>View Schedule>>
Hz and MHz Spin
With all the metabolic benefits of interval training, combined with planet-saving energy production, Hz and MHz are perfect conditioning classes. They are like no spinning class you've ever done. Classes are either 30 minutes (Hz) or 60 minutes (MHz). Hurts, Hz (energy production)... get it?!? >>Schedule/Reserve Bike>>
Remember how much fun recess was as a kid? All the results of our metabolic classes with the fun of - you guessed it - recess! Spend your lunchtime having fun by climbing on the monkey bars, playing tug of war, and being a kid again, while exercising like an athlete! >>View Schedule>>
