About Us

 Please check out the video above for an overview of what we’re all about!

RTP Fitness is the oldest continually-running health club and gym in North Carolina, we’ve been here 41 years while the others have come and gone. We are not a “big box” corporate chain club or a cookie-cutter franchise that treats you like a number. We are a family-owned and operated gym and fitness club and when you walk through our doors we know your name and we’re glad to see you- we are your neighborhood fitness club.

Our 11,000 square foot facility is fully-equipped with some of the best free weight, cardio, and resistance machines in the area. Our members range from former NFL players to young professionals to single moms to college students to RTP professionals to competitive lifters to retirees- and what they all share in common is a desire to be in a place that’s serious about health and fitness, that has the best equipment at the best price, and where everybody knows your name.

So, if you’re looking for a place with lots of fancy furniture and amenities (and the fancy prices that go along with it!), we’re probably not the place for you. If you’re looking for a place that’s serious about fitness and has the best people, prices and value, you should drop by and pay us a visit…

Our facility includes: – The best-equipped free weight area in the Triangle – Hammer Strength machines – Body Master machines – Nautilus machines – Treadmills – Bicycles – Cross Trainers – Stairmasters – Group fitness classes-  Boot Camps, Convict Conditioning, Personal Training (Group and Individual) with some of the most qualified and experienced Trainers in the area- our Trainers average 8+ years experience – Specialized Evening Classes- Aikido with Sensei Gil Fitts and POUND Fitness with Karen Coates – Great Prices on Nutritional Supplements

We believe maintaining a healthy lifestyle is the most important factor in determining your overall health. RTP Fitness recognizes that health and fitness is much more than just lifting weights or running on a treadmill. We provide the resources and motivational assistance you will need to reach your health and fitness goals. Whether your goal is weight loss, strength training, rehabilitation, or general conditioning, our programs and staff are here to provide you with a safe and effective workout. Our commitment to service and quality programming can be seen throughout the club. We know you will look forward to each workout session in our fun and relaxing atmosphere. Keeping fit is not just a fad – it’s a way of life. If you haven’t been in to see us yet, or you haven’t been in for a while, come check out all the changes and improvements- we think you will like what you see!
