C.U.L.T. (Comprehensive Unified Lifestyle Training)

Comprehensive
Our program addresses all aspects of personal growth. We’ll help you to truly comprehend the changes that will enable you to succeed. Through incremental changes and proper daily choices, we’ll help you see measurable results.

Unified
Combining diet and exercise with productive habits, you’ll awaken to a more upbeat approach to the daily grind, transforming it into the daily opportunity. We’ll help you get that “glow” of a person who is both physically and mentally fit.

Lifestyle
Through our help with small changes in your daily life that build upon each other, your goals of a stronger lifestyle will be achieved over time. Fitness isn’t just about working out and toning up, it’s about opening yourself to a new, more invigorating way of life, and the Cult will help you get there.

Training
We won't just be helping you to teach your body to respond and look the way you want. We’ll help you to train your mind, too, giving you the focus to ask the right questions and make proper decisions about your exercise, diet, physique and fitness goals.

Pittsburgh Fitness Cult also works to encourage the soul. Our clients become friends whom we mentor, and whose successes we celebrate as if they were our own.
