We Are Here For You!

At Richard's Fitness, we are here to help you with your health and fitness goals.  We can help you lose weight, with general fitness and weightlifting, guided exercise, post physical therapy, senior fitness, geriatric fitness, and doctor prescribed exercise.  We are not a gym but an upscale personal training facility with private workout rooms and one-on-one private training.  We offer a welcoming and safe environment for our clients so that you will feel comfortable and confident.

All training is personalized to you and by appointment only.  We start with a consultation so that you have an opportunity to see the facility and identify your goals.


About Richard's Fitness

Richard's Fitness was founded by Richard Windham, with a desire to help people live life to the fullest, with a healthy body and mind.  He started his career working in Cardiac Rehab but realized that many of the people he was helping would be better served if they had never had to have a heart procedure in the first place.  This prompted Richard to work with people doing prehab, instead of rehab.

At Richard's Fitness, we facilitate a variety of client needs.  Through personal training, our clients have success with weight loss, change in body composition (more lean muscle mass and less body fat), increased flexibility, and overall well being.

When clients lose weight and change their diet they see an improvement in their A1C level and are often times able to come off medication for diabetes (with doctor direction).

We also are able to help in areas of specialization that include: senior and geriatric fitness, sports specific training for athletes, transition to exercise after physical therapy, and developing confidence in middle school and high school-aged teens.

Whatever your fitness goal is, we are here to help in a safe and welcoming environment that is geared toward your success!
