The PraxisFit Story
PraxisFit is about getting lost in the action of moving forward, finding enjoyment and fulfillment in the process rather than the destination. We are a passionate team of people from vastly different backgrounds, eager to help our community meet their fitness goals in a fun and energetic environment.
PraxisFit was founded in 2015 by fitness professional, Stephany Esmay and her business partners Mike Esmay, Mike Behrens and Amy Behrens. The decision was based on their passion for community development and seeing people of all ages and fitness levels find satisfaction in living healthy lives. Too often, gyms are places of disappointment with results and isolated effort, with many people finding it difficult to feel connected and empowered. It was time to change all that.
PraxisFit is a new type of gym – we do not cater to one specific body type or image of perfection. We are not focused on how much weight you lose or your max bench press. We do not believe in creating an exclusive club. We do however, care about making you feel proud of your body and the healthy lifestyle you are pursuing, all while being surrounded by people with similar goals. We want you to become the best version of yourself. We are strong believers in partnering with social causes in our community and world and strive to support organizations helping people in need.
Utilizing state of the art equipment, facilities and a highly trained staff, PraxisFit offers the highest level of fitness training available. Whether you’re a Division 1 athlete, busy mom, student or triathlete, PraxisFit is committed to providing you with the space, direction, and training to help you achieve the goals that matter to you most.
We are PraxisFit. We are one gym, many goals.
“Most people give up right before the big break comes – don’t let that person be you.”
