Do You Fit

In 2008, Core Progression Elite Personal Training began with an idea and a belief.

After earning his B.S. in Exercise Science from Baylor University, Jon Cerf took a job at 24 Hour Fitness and quickly became aware of the downfalls of a generic approach to fitness. The focus of large, corporate gyms on quantity over quality neglected the need and rewards of personal training. Seeing the vast potential for improvement, Jon pioneered a customized personal training centric studio centered around three core values: customer service, results, and cleanliness.
