OUR STORY

Time to Rise Fitness, located in Shillington, PA, is a brand new facility dedicated to all forms of fitness. Upon opening, our gym will provide state-of-the-art equipment, including ArsenalGhostHammer StrengthPrecor and Intek, while also offering cardio equipment, a dedicated powerlifting room, and studio space. As Time to Rise Fitness grows, we look forward to expanding our class options. Personal training is welcome and encouraged. Whether you feel most at home using cardio equipment, lifting weights, or practicing yoga, our gym will signal your time to rise to become the best version of yourself.

We just celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary and sensed it was time to throw ourselves into a new inspirational project. When our children, Zachary and Mackenzie, heard about our plan, Zach and Kenz quickly began to pitch in ideas, too. The project became a family effort with all of us discussing, sketching, and revising blueprints for the Time to Rise Fitness floor plan. In actuality, the family, especially Allen, has dreamed of opening a gym for well over a decade. Now, in 2020, this exercise-loving family of four is committed to bringing Allen’s dream to fruition, while also providing the best space possible for all fitness enthusiasts.
