OUR STORY

 

There are very few gyms that exist like RTS, and we like it that way…because we want to change the way you think about going to the gym.

We believe that going to the gym should be the best part of your day, so we strive to give you an experience unlike any other. At RTS, you will receive coaching, support, scientific-based training - and, above all - you’ll receive the tools needed to achieve results.

RTS founder Michael Ranfone (born and raised in CT) began his coaching career at Yale University, where he worked with hundreds of young men and women striving for success in collegiate athletics.  This experience helped shape his desire to provide the highest level of fitness and performance training to anyone willing to embark on that journey.  

In 2010, that vision took shape as RTS opened its doors in Hamden, CT.  We've grown from a small 2-person operation to a team of 8 coaches and a steady supply of young college interns looking to cut their teeth in the business.  Our coaches are some of the finest in the industry, and our passionate commitment to our members and athletes is what makes us stand apart.

 

Our Adult programming is tiered towards YOUR specific goals, and we offer Semi Private Training, Group Sessions, and Specialty Classes for those looking to…
