VPR Gym is a very good place to workout. You will not find your typical gym atmosphere here. The training is very professional and knowledgeable. The trainer is there watching every exercise you do, and teaches you the proper techniques to avoid injury and maximize your workout. The workouts are not boring and you will see a different workout routine almost every month or so. You will get a full body workout/conditioning. There is no need to worry about egos here; everyone here helps and pushes each other through every workout. If you want to gain muscle, lose some weight, and just become a stronger, leaner you… Go by, you won’t be disappointed.

VPR gym is a place for people of all levels and abilities who are serious about reaching their health and fitness goals. As a member of the gym, I have to attest to the fact that VPR is an environment where I really believe everyone is treated with the utmost care, we learn the best training techniques and our trainer is extremely knowledgeable about nutrition and fitness.

VPR is not a gym where you’ll find people socializing and standing around on their phones; it’s a place where people really immerse themselves in their training. But don’t let that intimidate you, what I love most about VPR is that you can walk in as a complete stranger to the world of fitness and feel just as comfortable as someone who has been working out for years.

At VPR, everyone is incredibly friendly and helpful. In my opinion, VPR truly gives you value for your money. Come join us!
