What is Alpha Squad Fitness?
Alpha Squad Fitness is a strength based functional fitness group training gym that uses proven techniques to deliver results to members!!

We understand it and we have done it countless times, what we know is, it’s not chance, it’s not art, it’s a simple yet practical formula with a well executed plan.
Whats an Alpha Squad Fitness Class like?
It’s the complete package.
Classes are fun, exciting and hard work that’s totally worth it. Run by experienced coaches full of kowledge and quick wit.
