The decades-old big box gym isn’t built to help people like you get what you really want.  They just want to rent you time on their equipment.  They want to oversell memberships, hoping that most members won’t actually show up. These gyms are built for their own profit, not for your success.

Smaller studios can sometimes give you the personal attention, guidance and community support your looking for, but are too frequently staffed by trainers with weekend or online certifications, and you’ve seen people get injured at some of those places.  Who needs that?

These gyms may seem like the only viable option, but John and Cherise, founders of Altus, were convinced there was a better way and decided to take a completely different approach.  The Altus teams’ sole focus is the actual results and fitness success of their members. They are here to train, educate, coach, serve and lead you along the entire process of living your optimal life.

Get the attention, support and guidance you’ve always wanted at Altus!  Be more than just Fit…Be Able!

Welcoming Environment

We truly believe in our philosophy of “Freedom through ability by diligence with each other.”  No one has ever accomplished anything of worth alone.  We all need support and we know that our job is to truly support you every step of the way.  Our members are still surprised at how vested we are in their success and hopefully you will be too.

World Class Coaches

Any fool can make someone tired.  The fitness industry is inundated with online/weekend certified trainers who became trainers because they like working out. Our coaches have graduates’ degrees and long track records of helping others become successful from all different backgrounds.  From being able to walk without pain again, just being healthier or running marathons, we’ve been there done that.

Exclusive Technology

We want you to get results and to know how you’re doing.  To achieve that we’ve incorporated a variety of different technologies you won’t find anywhere else in Pittsburgh.  Your workouts will be more engaging as you will get immediate feedback on how your doing and you can track your progress on our custom mobile app.

Designed with Everyone in Mind

One size does not fit all when it comes to health and fitness.  Everyone has different backgrounds and needs. Therefore, our coaches have designed a systematic, progressive, tiered approach that allows people from all fitness levels to train in the same class doing a personalized session. So it doesn’t matter what fitness level you are coming in at you will not get left behind or left wanting more.
