"Paragon is obsession." -Ryan Whited, Owner
Creative, effective, smart, and fun, our training aims to redefine the role of exercise in health and performance with unique programming not often seen in the traditional gym setting.
As humans, our bodies and minds all share the capacity to build resilience through strength and adaptation. At Paragon Athletics, we utilize this capacity to maximize your potential and steer your body towards a better way of life. Ten years ago we took it upon ourselves to look at training differently, to elevate ourselves through the study of biomechanics, pain science, and biopsychosocial methodology so that we could turn the current health model on its head and provide people with a better way to improve themselves. Today, we continue learning and sharing our knowledge through unique class experiences and personalized training sessions that redefine what it means to be physically and mentally fit.
Effective fitness is more than just hitting every muscle group within an hour. To be smart, an exercise program must have intention. This intention isn’t just which muscle to target or how many repetitions to give, it is how you target it and what change you are looking to make. Paragon Athletics builds every unique exercise around principles regarding how muscles respond to certain activity, how your perception of that activity guides work output, and how joint mobility changes with exercise. We use intention in everything we do, to make sure you get the highest quality training, for your life and for your sport.
"My experience at Paragon has been truly transformational. In the 3 months since I began training at Paragon I have seen many changes in strength and endurance." -Tiana Tallant
"With constant change-up and rotation of workouts, it is never tedious or boring, and ALWAYS challenging. " - Christie Dennis
"It's true, a lot of the “classic” gym strength training workouts don't translate well to actual outdoor athletics. Ryan's workouts have me climbing harder, running faster, and skiing stronger than I ever have before." -Eric Helfrich
