Please Welcome Northwest Fitness Project to the Fremont Chamber!

Please Welcome Northwest Fitness Project to the Fremont Chamber!

Powered by independent trainers, Northwest Fitness Project offers Personal Training and Small Group Training from the best in the Northwest.
We started with a belief in the transformational power of fitness. Following eight years of working together, first as co-workers at an independent corporate gym, then independently operating out of the same studio, fitness entrepreneurs Kyle Davis and Matt Holland, merged their businesses and opened Northwest Fitness Project in June 2017.
The partners shared a dream of creating a facility that could be home to the fitness community they have cultivated and a welcoming space for effective functional fitness.
​With a growing roster of in-house trainers offering small group training and personal training alongside 12+ independent trainers, Northwest Fitness Project is the embodiment of that dream. ​Learn more about our newest member here!
