About Momentum

About Momentum

The Brand

Momentum Fitness was founded on the desire to foster healthy lifestyles of all different shapes and sizes. A gym, built on community, with trainers and members who encourage and inspire one another. Our name, Momentum, speaks to movement. Progress. Personal victory. And our roots are anchored in knowing that we have the ability to help women and men live more fully in the moment through healthier choices.

Our Unique Approach to Fitness

Our health club is large, but the community we’ve cultivated inside is tight-knit. The building itself has allowed us to create a unique club experience that contains a series of boutique studios inside. Of course, we have the standard cardio and strength training equipment. But we go beyond the basics. We’ve created spaces for functional training, yoga, martial arts and ballet fitness programming.

Local Fitness Studio. Local Owners.

Our owners have been in the fitness industry for over 30 years. As local residents, they not only know Tallahassee but understand the ins and outs of the health club business. With Momentum, they are launching a personal vision to help others find fulfillment and joy in choosing a healthy lifestyle. They have put together a team of top-notch trainers, group class instructors and friendly staff to help you seize your moment. We hope you’ll swing by for a chance to meet our team.

The beauty of Momentum Fitness is our unique ability to give members
multiple studio experiences
under one roof.
