"Fitness: Invest in Yourself"

"Unlock Your Potential:  Transform your life through personalized fitness, nutrition, and mindfulness”

There’s no question that your health is your greatest asset. Why not do whatever it takes to be as healthy, strong, and confident as possible?

At No Limit Personal Training, clients can take charge of their fitness and well-being with the highest-quality personal and group training services in the area.

“The most important investment anyone can make is in their health. Whether it be investing time daily, or money for a trainer or gym, without your health, you are decreasing the time you have with your loved ones,” says NLPT Client Services Manager Malarie Murphy. 

“We believe that every individual who walks through our door is important. It’s our job to help them succeed in their fitness journey. Our team goes above and beyond to create genuine relationships with our members, and we work together to create a welcoming community where everyone feels encouraged to become their best selves. We’re the kind of gym where everyone knows your name and genuinely wants to see you win.”          

In addition to providing clients across Orange County with a supportive, inviting environment where they can take the next step on their fitness journey with Semi-Private Personal Training, Group Fitness workouts, and even Elite Youth Sports Performance Training, their Private Nutrition Coaching also allows members to create healthier habits to build a more sustainable lifestyle with long-lasting, attainable results.

“Our vision is simple—we want to help busy adults get stronger, live longer, and feel better in a welcoming community where everyone feels like family. They say if you don’t make time for your health, you will be forced to make time for your illness. We are all only given one body, and it is our responsibility to take care of it to live a long, healthy life. Our inspiration is to leave every person who comes through our doors in better shape than when they first came in. We are focused on saving one life at a time.”

No Limit Personal Training has something to offer everyone, regardless of your current fitness level—or lack thereof.

“Whether you’re a beginner or a fitness enthusiast, our programs are designed to meet your specific needs and help you achieve your goals. You’ll have access to accountability, support, and guidance every step of the way, ensuring that you stay motivated and on track.”

With an array of programs formulated to level the fitness playing field for anyone interested in getting their health and physical fitness on track, it’s apparent that the NLPT team is invested in creating a customized, unique plan for each and every client.

NLPT’s solid track record of success is illustrated by everything they have accomplished within their community of satisfied clients over the past decade and a half.

“With 15 years of service to our community, we have helped thousands of people achieve their goals like losing weight, gaining muscle, improving balance and mobility, or improving their overall health. If you are looking for a gym where the coaches genuinely care about your success and are committed to leaving you better off than you were before, and a community of amazing members who will support you along the way, then No Limit Personal Training is the right place for you.”

As an additional reflection of their commitment to building a strong sense of community, the NLPT team also supports special charitable organizations in the area.

“We work closely with ABC Hopes and My Day Counts, and they are near and dear to our hearts. ABC Hopes’ mission is to empower persons with intellectual disabilities to contribute to society in a positive manner by giving them opportunities that develop their social, physical, and educational/life skills. So, on Thursdays, our Coaching Director, Coach Briana Takanabe, holds a workout for those with intellectual and physical disabilities. We also partner with ABC hopes for their annual Row-a-Thon which raises money for local families and charities in need.”
