Training hard

Training smart is just as important as training hard! We work on different components of your body’s performance outputs on different days, so you can train more regularly, with more consistent results and less injuries.

Where fitness goals become extraordinary adventures

Whether it’s through your social sports, hiking, endurance sports or obstacle racing, you love to test yourself. Your sore muscles, scratches and adventure stories aren’t just a sign you’ve trained hard – they’re a reminder that pushing your limits is what makes you feel most alive.

Committed to the cause

We’ve been heavily involved in the outdoor sporting community for years. That’s underpinned by more than a decade of experience in personal training, high-level run coaching and group fitness instruction.

Walking the talk

This isn’t just a job - it’s how we choose to live our lives. We train hard, regularly participate in outdoor events with the Ascend Fit crew and spend our downtime exploring new places.

What you can expect from our workouts

Our group classes focus on developing multiple types of fitness, endurance, agility, strength, and balance.

  • Check in. Arrive five minutes early to find your spot on the floor and meet your instructor.
  • Mobility work. Each session starts off with five minutes of mobility work, which over time will compound into more range of motion, less pain and greater flexibility.
  • The workout! We combine weight training, cardio and core all into one EPIC 45-minute workout. The exercises are easily modified to challenge your fitness level and no workout is ever the same – it’s literally impossible to get bored.
  • High fives. You’re heart-rate is pumping and your muscles are tired (in a good way). Get your high fives, give yourself a big pat on the back and we’ll see you at the next session.

120+ members & growing

We’re proud to say many of our members have been with us for years and there’s nothing more rewarding than watching our people train hard and achieve their goals.

I have been exercising for over 5 years, and have been training at Ascend Fit for the past 9 months. The results have been outstanding! My mindset has changed from exercising to be skinny, to exercising to be strong, and with that have come body composition changes that I have never seen before.

The classes are well planned and Liam and the team are great at motivating and challenging you to get the best out of your workout. It is a very welcoming and supportive atmosphere, and I would encourage people of all ages or levels of fitness to join!
