Building the Best You

What is ARX Training? It is adult group fitness training carefully d  esigned to get you into great shape so you can take on the world! Every day brings a new challenge for you to conquer. No two workouts are the same. So if you’re looking to decrease body fat, boost lean muscle mass, build greater functional strength or enhance sports performance you’ve come to the right place. At ARX Training—the adult training division of Athletic Republic Norwood—we’re all about helping you reach your fitness potential in a supportive environment. You won’t find drill sergeants here -- just caring, knowledgeable and enthusiastic fitness professionals looking to help you succeed.

Our experienced coaches will create daily workouts designed to help you achieve your personal performance goals—whether that means riding a Century, climbing a high peak, winning bragging rights among your beer-league hockey teammates, even showing your teenager you’ve still got game. And if your goals have more to do with your reflection in the mirror than your time on a stopwatch, we can help with that too. Thanks to thoughtful programming, insightful coaching, and your own determination, you’ll achieve your goals in a body you’ll be proud of.
