FIT Academy was founded by local fitness industry expert, Jarod Cogswell. It was Jarod’s dream to create a fitness facility that provides a culture sincerely focused on physically, mentally and spiritually enhancing people’s lives.  According to FIT Academy’s current members, that goal has been accomplished.

I am Susan Jansson, and together with Emanuel Rose, we are the new managers and co-owners of Fit Academy.

Providing you with a clean, well-maintained facility, great classes, modern equipment and an engaged staff remains our primary commitment.

After working out and meeting the staff and members at Fit Academy, I am excited about the opportunity that exists for all of us!

Supportive and Focused Membership

The warmth and commitment to fitness I experienced from the members I spoke with are indicative of the community feel of this club. I appreciate the positive attitude and mood of the members I spoke with. Those interactions helped me commit to you and the Fit Academy.

Fit Academy Culture Will Continue

The attention to members, cleanliness of the club and personalized service will continue. We will also continue to make this a comfortable environment for our members, their friends and the community.
