S³ Principles

The foundation of your success!


At Areté HealthFit, we take a realistic approach that is both balanced and reasonable with regard to your fitness status, experience, age and goals.


The most successful fitness program is the one you can maintain. This means that it must address any current aches or pains and be structured to reduce future risk of injury. After all, if you can’t exercise, it’s difficult to make progress.



We apply meticulous attention to detail in designing your fitness regimen, from exercise selection to proper biomechanics and training volume, aided by advanced technology.



"The progress and results I have experienced exceeded my expectations!"
