When did your business get started? 
Transcend Fitness Club was reinvented in 2010. What began as a dwindling 80-person gym has grown over the past three years and now entertains over 600 club members. In 2010, the then named "Transcend Sports Training" catered to youth athletes. As the director, I saw the potential the business had in offering more services to its current members and expanding the fitness realm within the facility. A "right place, right time" situation allowed the transition into ownership and we have not looked back since. 

Why did you choose Newtown to open your business?  
I grew up in Newtown. I went through the Council Rock school system and enjoyed all of the athletics available within Newtown. There was only one place for me to come back to and begin a business and now family. My wife, four-month old son and myself enjoy the rich history of the area, the community and the people within our community. The short success of the business, I attribute to the "open arm" welcome we received from the community upon opening the doors. 

What is your business best known for?
Transcend Fitness Club is still defining its niche. Within the three short years, our most valuable asset we are known for is our members. Our company would not be where it has grown to now without the loyal support each member has offered since we began. The standout personnel within Transcend stands out in the eyes of many. I constantly hear about how welcoming and "homey" Transcend Fitness Club is. That is a direct correlation to our members.  

What's something interesting about your business your customers might not know?
An interesting fact about Transcend Fitness Club that some people may not know is that we are the only 100 percent family owned fitness club in the area. The seven-day daily operations are run by myself and my wife, Jessica, who serves as our Director of Operations. I would think it is also safe to say that our four-month old son, TJ, is the club mascot as well. 

Does your business offer a special deals card or program?
We always offer free seven-day trials as well as free fitness evaluations. Often times, we have new member specials upon registration.

I am just starting with Transcend and could NOT be happier! I've had only great experiences with the staff and the very clean facilities. Its really a great place to work out for EVERY age and level of fitness. No pressure, no gimmicks. I'm so glad I finally "found" this place and I'm recommending to all of my friends. (And no, I'm NOT being paid to say this; I'm just a happy customer;)!
