Our Elite FT Trainers are highly trained and professional. We use the most effective and fun training methods available. We continue to develop programs so that each 6 Week Program is new and exciting.

Program Benefits

On Day 1, each athlete will receive an Elite FT Training Shirt. The color is specific to their program. We ask the athletes wear the shirt throughout the 6 Week Program! Athletes attend one class per week for 6 Weeks. Have a conflict? Your athlete can only attend 4-5 of the 6 sessions? No problem. Attend any other day or time!

Program Details

All programs are offered year round indoor in Belleville and Glen Carbon. We also hold 6 Week Programs outside in O’Fallon during the Spring, Summer and Fall. Typically, new programs begin every 7 weeks.
