Message from the Owners

After 37 years of operation we are excited to announce that Heavens elevated fitness has rebranded to more clearly identify our vision, mission and legacy in the fitness industry to The ACADEMY!

We have been in business since 1982. We began as an aerobic studio in 2,000 square feet with the intention of bringing fun and professional group fitness classes to our community. Since then we have grown into a 15,000 square foot Boutique Health and Fitness space with 3 studios; Fitness, Yoga/Pilates and Cycling, full gym and functional training space and small group/personal training services.

In the past few years we have experienced a rapid influx of a large number of studio fitness facilities in our market. In the midst of the chaos in the fitness industry we re-evaluate our brand and set out to establish a stronger position in the marketplace. Our greatest strength is our expertise and our continued desire to elevate the fitness education, experience and ultimately the results of our clients and fitness team. We have seen many fitness trends come and go but what has always remained is training with PURPOSE.

This is the evolution of …The ACADEMY, powered by Heavens Fitness.

Our philosophy is TRAIN RIGHT FOR LIFE. We are in it for the long run.

Academy, is the commonly used word for collective institution of high learning and opportunity under one roof. We felt this best describe what we have to offer that is unique to other organizations in the fitness industry.

Our vision is to train right for life and to achieve a healthy life balance.

Our mission is bound by a common philosophy: to provide an outstanding fitness experience that you feel is your own. It’s a way of life.

Our Legacy is to never settle for what is popular, always seeking the best for you. We have evolved over time letting go of things that are no longer effective and adding training methodologies that are based on science and results - Train Right!


Our ongoing passion for education and innovation have led us to the new era of Heavens…The ACADEMY.  Thank you to our amazing team of motivators, coaches, trainers and service providers. Thank you to our very loyal clients for their years of support.



With Gratitude
