People exercise for a variety of personal reasons – they want to feel better, get healthier, look better, get stronger, and lead longer, productive lives. They may also harbor misgivings, such as fear of injury having never worked out before, or worrying they won’t have the time to commit to making a real difference.
At Vertex Fitness, we want to introduce you to a whole new way of looking at exercise and wellness. We are committed to working with you to help you overcome any doubts, focus on your goals in a private setting, and guide you through safe, efficient, and definitely effective workouts to get you there.
Vertex Fitness workouts are designed around three core areas, no matter what your personal goals. Combined focus and improvement in these areas is scientifically proven to deliver the most beneficial total body experience.
Similar to physicians, Vertex and its staff uphold principles of the hippocratic oath, vowing to always make their client’s safety their top priority. It is the Vertex belief that you should never get hurt working out.
In and out in less than an hour, our efficient and effective workouts will allow you to enjoy all of the general health and fitness benefits that strength training can produce:
If a person exercises with high enough effort levels, they will only be able to sustain it for short period of time. When exercising with low intensity, the session will last much longer for the same results. Exercising with higher effort is a great way to make your training sessions effective as well as time efficient. You will not need to perform multiple sets of each exercise. Time is no longer a limiting factor. Effort has a huge impact on exercise duration.

Behind every great man is an even greater woman. Bill FitzGerald knew he had to start taking better care of himself. However, he didn’t start until his wife told him to! That was over three years ago. Bill, a professor of English at Rutgers-Camden University, chose Vertex for a couple of reasons: 1. He wanted someone to watch over him and make sure he was using proper form on each exercise and 2. He wanted someone who could coach him like he coaches his writing students, with “appropriate push.”...

Just wanted to let you know that vertex has helped me out a ton at boot camp and the academy. This morning we had half an hour to workout, and all my fellow cadets were complaining about about how they couldn't get a full workout in. I walked away in 25 minutes with a better workout than any of them. Just wanted to thank you for preparing me well! Thanks again, Robert O'Connor
At Vertex Fitness, we help folks of every level get fit and achieve their personal best. Sometimes that includes folks that have never done an exercise regimen before, and some, like today’s spotlight, have been a personal trainer themselves. Tricia Roarty was a personal trainer for five years, and ran her own business for four of them. She hopes to return to being a personal trainer professionally, but for now she is kept plenty busy with three teenagers and two dogs at home, along with her volunteer work...
I've had one workout session with Dwayne at Vertex and I'm already noticing a difference in my results now that I am using his techniques. What I've come to realize is that these techniques are based in simple common sense, but like many other people who have a regular workout routine like I do, it never occurred to me to use them. If you're doing the commonly accepted 3 or more sets you're wasting your time. I've come to realize now is that I can shorten the time it takes to work out by using the proper technique with better results and that's the real value in what Vertex teaches. Change your workout from quantity to quality!
