I’ve dreamed of owning a gym every second of every day for the last 4 years and I cannot believe it finally came true. Being able to help others stay fit, but most importantly just feel better about themselves, is truly such a blessing. Conshohocken is such a great community of people especially the members of TZ. I cannot wait to get back to work with Bart Pierre, David Yontef, Kaila Ilyes, Frank the tank and Jaime Frantz. We are going to build off of our relationship and provide you with a great experience, because we all truly care! If you have previous membership issues due to Covid or any questions at all we would love to sit down with you personally and talk!
