Our Programming

Primal Elite Fitness runs on 4 week phases.  We alternate between Strength and Conditioning days to allow our members to workout everyday without over training their body.  We offer a recovery day once per week that alternates on Wednesday and Thursdays.  Don’t let the name fool you!  It is one of the hardest workouts of the week but we spend an extra 7-8 minutes post workout on mobility and flexibility.  Once we finish 4 weeks of the current phase, we replace with another phase that has a completely different theme, tempo, sets, reps, etc.


We offer a variety of class packages to suit every budget and schedule. Most new clients start with a 2-week trial, then select a membership level from there.
