Why Sweat Therapy Fitness?

Because group fitness changed my life. I was overweight as a child and dealt with teasing and low self-esteem. It wasn’t until I found group exercise in my mid-thirties that I began to appreciate the power of breaking a sweat. 

After losing 80+ pounds and becoming stronger physically and mentally, I was eager to share my passion for exercise with my friends, family and neighbors. It was this desire to help my community become “Stronger. Better. Together” that led me to create Sweat Therapy Fitness in 2010. I wanted to build an inspiring place for all fitness levels, where the staff and instructors took the time to understand each client’s unique goals and challenges. 

Eight years later my dream is realized and I couldn’t be prouder of the community we have built. Every day the Sweat Therapy Fitness team encourages people to lead happier, healthier lives. We are building confidence and helping all types of people love their bodies. From high school athletes, active aging adults, those battling obesity, and our Rock Steady Boxers fighting back against Parkinson’s Disease, Sweat Therapy Fitness has a program for every age, gender, body type, injury or illness. If you’re ready to sweat, we’re here to make it fun! 

Music Style: Anything that makes me dance! Top 40, R&B, Blues, Oldies, 70’s Rock

Why Sweat Therapy Fitness?

I’ve always been an athlete. Growing-up I played sports in school and became an avid runner as an adult. When a knee injury prevented me from running, I transitioned to cycling and fell in love with this new sport. I was teaching an indoor cycling workout when I met my now wife and business partner, Kim.

Kim was just as passionate about fitness as I was and dreamed of opening a small group fitness studio – at the time this was a completely new concept for Tallahassee. Nearing retirement from more than 30 years at a local law firm, I wasn’t anxious to join the “old folks” rocking away on their front porches. I jumped on the opportunity to take on a new challenge and continue sharing my passion for cycling and fitness with others.

When Kim and I opened Sweat Therapy Fitness in 2010 I never imagined the incredible community it would become. Every day I’m awed by the dedication our clients demonstrate. From our Rock Steady Boxers, to college students, moms, and retirees, every member of the Sweat Therapy Fitness family gives it their all in the pursuit of becoming “Stronger. Better. Together.” 

Music Style: A little bit of everything! Top 40, oldies, rock and roll and blues.

Cecily Armengol

Fitness Director
Hometown: Davie, FL
Why Sweat Therapy Fitness?

I found Sweat Therapy Fitness shortly after the doors opened in 2010 while completing my Bachelor’s degree at FSU. I began coming to workouts as a client and was then lucky enough to be hired as the first official Front Desk Staff member. Working at STF fueled my passion for fitness, and soon I became certified as group fitness instructor, personal trainer, and received my Master’s degree in Sport Management.

 Through the years STF has evolved with the ever changing fitness industry, but the culture has always remained the same. Our clients, staff, and instructors are your neighbors and friends. We want to know your name and we want to see you succeed in achieving your fitness goals. Every time you walk in the door, you can expect to be greeted with a smile and receive a unique workout. We will coach and inspire you to work hard, SWEAT and most importantly have fun! 

Music Style: Alternative and popular music with some occasional 80's, 90's and 2000's throwbacks .

General Manager

Why Sweat Therapy Fitness?

Sweat Therapy has created a fitness family in our community, and the group workouts make working out fun instead of a chore. I love the innovative equipment that STF trainers have access to in our workouts and that we’re empowered to provide modifications and progressions to help all clients, regardless of their current fitness level, find success.

Music Style: When I teach Sweat Camp I play top 40s with a little 80s and 90s mixed in. For yoga I blend of traditional yoga music, mixed with movie soundtracks and slower tempo hits.

Why Sweat Therapy Fitness?

Because group workouts work! I was a client at Sweat Therapy Fitness before I made the leap from full-time public relations professional to group fitness instructor, personal trainer and marketing director. The accountability that Sweat Therapy workouts create helps clients challenge themselves and translates into awesome results. If you’re looking for a welcoming place to call your workout home, you’ve found it.

Dan Washburn

Rock Steady Boxing Coach
Hometown: Green Lake, WI
Why Sweat Therapy Fitness?

I found Sweat Therapy Fitness when I joined their Rock Steady Boxing program to help slow the progression of my Parkinson’s Disease. After experiencing my own success, I was empowered to become Rock Steady Boxing certified so I could help my fellow “Parkies” fight back. Now I regularly teach Rock Steady Boxing workouts at Sweat Therapy Fitness and cherish the opportunity to share my passion for exercise with other people living with PD.

Music Style: Classic Rock

Why Sweat Therapy Fitness?

I started out as a client at Sweat Therapy Fitness and was able to reach my goals of gaining muscle mass, strength and endurance. As a trainer, I’m passionate about helping clients reach their goals.

Jason McArthur

Instructor
Hometown: Tallahassee, FL
Why Sweat Therapy Fitness?

Nothing is more motivating than seeing other people push themselves, and Sweat Therapy’s RealRyder bikes allow cyclists to do just that. Being able to turn the Real Ryder bike side-to-side works the core and upper body in addition to the legs, giving Sweat Therapy clients something that’s missing from all other spin classes.

Music Style: Modern and alternative rock, indie/ synth /modern pop with some 80s throwbacks.

For one, Sweat Therapy has the most personable trainers leading their workouts. Trainers at Sweat emphasize that clients aren’t just working out to burn calories, but to live an active healthy lifestyle.

This is a fun place to be for both the clients and trainers.
