About Regymen Fitness

REGYMEN Fitness is a multi-platform fitness studio concept developed from decades of fitness industry experience. Our high-energy offering backed by exercise science takes the form of three classes: Burn, Box & Build. Each is supported by real-time analytics and designed to deliver results in the most efficient way possible. With other brands sold out nationwide, the emergence of REGYMEN Fitness as a challenger in the growing boutique fitness studio segment couldn’t be better timed.




The Regymen Fitness Advantage


A diverse program available under one roof at a competitive price negates the need for gym hopping and keeps members coming back, leading to recurring revenue.
