If you have landed on this page, Welcome to S.M.A.R.T. Fitness Studio’s online presence. Here you will find information about exercise and fitness and health. Today however, I simply want to say “Hello.” If you haven’t visited the Studio in person yet, I hope to meet you soon. You’ll like it. The Studio is comfortable, inviting and encouraging. And...there’s no other studio like it in West Philadelphia.
Located at 2499 North 50th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19131 (the Ground Floor of the Bala Apartment building), we offer Spinning and other types of Group Fitness classes. Are you an early riser? Come to one of our 8am or 9am weekend classes. Did you know that the benefits of exercise lingers throughout the day? You continue to burn calories after your workout is done. Use this benefit during the day when you are eating instead of when you are sleeping. Then again, perhaps evening classes are better for you to de-stress after a hard day’s work. Whatever time of day, make sure you get your workout in! Check out the “classes” link on this site and click on classes. Our instructors are awesome and committed to giving you a rewarding experience.
Oh…I didn’t mention that Personal Training is available. Working with a Personal Trainer can create a specific workout plan just for you based on what you want to achieve. Contact me directly and we’ll set up a time to talk about your health and fitness goals.
So, “Welcome” and “Hello” once again...
Feel free to reach out to me via email or text (267) 713-9403 (or in person) with your comments about the class schedule, the website, or something else you may want to ask or say.
And, I hope you find the blog posts below helpful and informative!

We may not always be able to control how our abs look, but we can control how strong they are.
Six-pack abs look good, but strong abs can make you feel good. A supported spine makes daily activities easier and protects you from back pain and injury. Moving beyond crunches, beyond the six-pack, can show you what your abs can really do.
The Truth About Abs
Ab myths have been around for decades, perhaps even centuries, all due to that singular goal...more

I read a blog post on Hustle Fitness's web page and had to share! Hustle Fitness is a personal training studio in Chicago. I've never been there but it's an excellent example and model of the kind of studio that cares about it's clients and regards them as part of a community.
