Our Philosophy

Here at Epic, we believe it’s all about the journey, the process, the road that you travel to find your ultimate destination. In life, we set goals and we tend to dream about becoming a better version of ourselves.

However, when we set the goals, it’s not often when we can accomplish these aspirations on our own. Whether it has been family or friends, someone has helped us when we hit the road-blocks or speed-bumps that life tends to throw at us.

When it comes to your fitness journey, let Epic Fitness be the support that keeps you on the right path to success. Whether you’re looking to lose weight, gain muscle or just stay in shape, we can help you every step of the way. With our friendly, energetic staff and enormous equipment selection, we have everything you need in order for you to complete your Epic journey.

I joined Epic when they began offering the Silver Sneakers program. I started out with personal training sessions from James, but when Epic began Team Training last fall, I thought, why not? It’s absolutely the best thing I ever did. I have improved my overall strength, breathing, stamina, and best of all… my balance! It’s a great way to get strength training and cardio, and all in 50 minutes. My workouts are modified to my fitness level. I love it!

Epic is a great place to meet friends and to get encouragement to goals. Team Training workouts are challenging, but doable. I always feel welcome!

"Approximately two and a half years ago, I joined Epic Fitness. I was 73 years old and had great difficulty with my balance. I started going to the Silver Sneakers classes and decided to have a personal trainer help me. I have exceeded my expectations and I didn't think I would ever be able to do what I have accomplished. I enjoy and look forward to coming to the gym. I have met a lot of friends. It is like a family."
