What: Owner, Jonathan Arnold took a financial risk when he started Integrated Fitness, a private fitness facility providing personal training and group exercise classes, in 2010. His goal was to help others take control of their health and lead a more sustainable lifestyle, by providing a comfortable atmosphere focused on whole-body wellness. During Integrated Fitness's first year, Arnold booked 20 to 30 client hours. Today, Integrated Fitness has seven instructors running 110 client hours each week.

The facility's popular Weight Loss Challenge classes, which are designed for beginners as well as for those preparing for fitness competitions, has helped clients lose a collective 4,000 lbs since Integrated Fitness's inception. Arnold believes that weight loss can be achieved naturally without the need for surgery. Additionally, Integrated Fitness has won four different team awards from fitness competitions in powerlifting and bodybuilding.

Part of the success of Integrated Fitness comes from strict, one-on-one sessions and classes that challenge Integrated Fitness' clients to change their habits and concentrate on their body's health. To lead these comprehensive, and sometimes rigorous, classes, Integrated Fitness's trainers are specially certified to help clients reach their individual health goals; from nutrition consulting and weight loss, to building muscle and becoming more active.
