At FASTER, we offer more than personal fitness training sessions; our services extend to fitness classes that fit the needs of all ability levels. All classes are one hour in length, conveniently scheduled throughout the day and directed by knowledgeable, experienced, certified trainers. Our classes provide a platform for individualized training in a motivating group setting. We offer many different class options with one underlying constant in all; a GREAT WORKOUT that can be modified or intensified to meet individual needs. From EFX circuit training to Kam Jamz Hip Hop, our classes will be sure to satisfy.
ENHANCED FUNCTIONAL EXERCISE (EFX) is a high energy circuit-type workout that includes various stations of core, plyometric, resistance and cardio exercises. All stations can be modified or intensified to meet your needs and each class is taught by a certified trainer. This safe and challenging class creates EPOC (Excess Post Oxygen Consumption) and helps to burn fat up to 48 hours post workout.
METABOLIC FUNCTIONAL EXERCISE (MFX) is a fun and exciting workout that amplifies the benefits of metabolic strength training so that you not only burn calories during exercise, but also for 12-24 hours AFTER exercise (afterburn). This high intensity metabolic workout will increase your energy consumption post exercise, which leads to a higher resting metabolic rate (EPOC). Each class can be modified or intensified to meet anyone's needs.
METABOLIC CONDITIONING is a total body cardio and metabolic strength training class that helps you torch fat, burn calories, and build lean muscle. It incorporates athletic cardio HIIT drills, high rep resistance training, and functional core work for a full body 1 hour experience. Options and modifications will be provided for all moves.
KAM JAMZ is an intense hip hop cardio POWER hour. This unique format combines sporty athletic drills with very basic dance moves. You'll be having so much fun that you'll forget you are working out.

FASTER has trained numerous local teams for their football, basketball, lacrosse, softball, baseball, soccer, hockey and golf seasons! Both On-Site and Off-Site programs are available for teams of athletes of all ages and gender. Workouts will include plyometrics, speed and running form drills, strength and core development exercise techniques. The FASTER staff will break down movement and how it relates to athletes and the sports they play. FASTER Team Training is intended to maximize athletic potential and to educate coaches on how to properly train their athletes.
An athlete’s stock is largely dependent on their results from the Combine or Pro Day. With so much on the line, we at FASTER understand the importance of these standings and have created a program designed to maximize an athlete’s test results and ensure they make a lasting impression. Our individualized Combine and Pro Day training prepares athletes for the next level of their careers.
Utilizing XPE training methodology and intense replication of all Combine specific tests and position-specific drills, athletes will be fully prepared for their Combine or Pro Day debut. The incorporation of performance treadmills to decrease run times and vibration plates for increased jump height and strength, make FASTER the top choice training facility by elite athletes. Our program ultimately sets athletes on an organized plan to improve strength, speed, agility, balance and form, all the while focusing on injury prevention, nutrition and mental focus preparedness.
I weighed in this morning at 249.5 and achieved my first goal of a 10 pound weight loss. This was an important physical and mental milestone for me. There's more work to be done to reach my second goal of 26 pounds or 10% of my starting weight. Thank you and the training staff for your coaching, support and interest getting me to better health. As challenging as the past three weeks has been, I enjoy working with your staff...they are "good people". ~ Bill S.
At the start of 2013, at age 45, I was 30 pounds over weight and could barely do 10 push-ups. Thanks to FASTER and a 5am gym routine for the past 7 months, I along with my brothers Matt and Mike were able to finish the Tough Mudder-Pittsburgh in very respectable time today. Getting through this 12 mile - 18 extremely difficult obstacle event over rough terrain with my 2 brothers is something that I will never forget. Somewhere up there my Dad is smiling down on his boys. ~ Patrick M.
I want to tell you that I truly love going to FASTER. All the people and trainers are awesome. I have had a million compliments these past 2 weeks. Never felt better! Thank you so much for being the best gym in the 'Burgh. ~ Michelle Z.
I wanted to say thanks for everything you and the training staff at FASTER do for those who are workout there. You guys really make it enjoyable and have a family feel which I love and it's great to see so many people of all ages trying to get into better health. I wish you all nothing but the best and will recommend your facilities to anyone who asks me. ~ Tristan B.
I wanted to tell you how much your training helped. I am so happy I did that this summer because I passed my fitness test easily! I'm in really good shape and that usually isn't the case for me so I just wanted to say thank you and your training really is working! I am dying to come back and roll out on the vibe plate though. ~ Jordan B.Since joining FASTER the boys have quickly seen results. Sean finished third among all the lax players (55 or so) yesterday in an endurance drill where they did sprints. He was able to complete 81 without stopping. Alex played a tournament last month and he was the only one with any burst in the sixth and final game. Thanks goes out to Team FASTER! ~ The Kennedy Family
My conference championship meet went really well for me. I had 2 personal bests and achieved my goal of going under 4:30 in a 400 IM. I also made the NCAA national meet and I will be competing there next month at the Spire Institute in Ohio. I just wanted to thank you and the team there for helping me so much over the summer! I definitely think it helped me this season and look forward to coming in when I'm home. Thanks again! ~ Kellie G.
Just wanted to let you know that I made the travel team. I am 1 of 3 freshman to make it out of the position players there are 16 freshman by the way...Couldn't have done it without you. I'll keep you posted. First game this Saturday in West Virginia. ~ Rob D.
I really appreciate all of your help and guidance. I will for sure be coming back to Faster when I get home at the end of the year and especially if I make it to the league. You have helped me increase my athleticism and abilities so much already. Thank you again. My workouts are going great! I just box squatted 430lbs yesterday. I am in the best shape of my life because of you and your guidance. Thank you Coach! ~ Eric K., Virginia Military Institute
