About our Studio
TriFit is a boutique fitness studio that was founded in 2005. What makes our studio a staple in the Central Phoenix community for close to two decades? We believe that comes down to three main factors:
- Personalized coaching and hands on guidance
- Comprehensive training and holistic nutrition programs
- Welcoming, unpretentious atmosphere & diverse community of people
If you weren’t a high school or college athlete, or you weren’t born into a family who prepared healthy meals, chances are that you feel a little lost in the gym (and the kitchen). Every day we hear similar stories and struggles from our new clients who want to get healthy, but aren’t able to find a program that helps them reach their goals.
At TriFit, we are deeply committed to providing everything our clients need to succeed. Training, nutrition, accountability and support.
The “Tri” in TriFit Wellness, originated from the “three planes of motion” and is the philosophy behind our training programs. This functional training approach helps our clients improve their movement patterns, range of motion, function, and even reduce injury.
The “Wellness” part of our name encompasses our holistic approach to health. True “wellness” includes so much more than your training at the gym – Indeed it includes moving your body, but also your sleep patterns, nutrition, relationships, mental health and the joy you experience in your life.
If you are looking for a welcoming gym family and a place to become strong, healthy and happy, we hope you’ll give us a try – we look forward to meeting you.
