What is TAP?

Building Athletes. Building people. Building Community.  We want to help local athletes build strength, speed, agility, power and all of the primary functions of an athlete. Our members experience huge success in incredibility short amounts of time.

TAP into your inner athlete. Our classes are designed to craft your body into its peak balance and performance specifically for your life and what you desire. Call for a tour or to experience a class!

Fit & Functional Fitness Classes

Cardio & Strength — Our trainers have the ability to modify exercises to fit the physical needs of each client, whether in a personal training session or in our fitness classes. The fitness classes are for all age groups and activity levels; no matter what your fitness level, you will make progress. If you want a challenge; if you demand results, our classes are for you.

Athletics: TAP Into Your Potential

Durability is the single most important component of athletic training. Our workouts and programs are dynamic and progressive. We believe you cannot train for one singular athletic component. Isolated training leads to athletic limitations. To construct a complete athlete, you need to develop balance, quickness, speed, and strength and the body’s ability to utilize all its athletic components at once. Learn how to master all of your physical talents by unleashing untapped athletic potential and focusing on developing full-body power. We will fine-tune your ability for explosive power by prescribing customized exercises to fit your individual training level.

Personal Training

Personal training is the most effective method of attaining your physical goals. We will find the correct physical demand that will create your desired outcome. Having a trainer oversee your entire program ensures the fastest and most productive results. This is not your standard personal training program, everything in the program is customized and altered for your benefit. Your goals, physical condition, and personal likes will determine the type of program designed for you.


Kids’ Camps

Designed to teach kids how to play purposefully to encourage an active and healthy lifestyle; and creating the building blocks to be successful at any sport. Watch for special camps and programs throughout the year!

Athlete Camps

Our athlete development camps incorporate a combination of power, strength, and development training to create the TOTAL TAP ATHLETE. Our trainers use our very own TAP philosophy to put athletes to the test in areas including function, balance, durability and mobility. This competitive and fun environment ensures high performance and success! Look for our next Camp dates in the NEWS section.
