Welcome to Ultimate Performance Bethesda gym – a truly world-class private personal training gym.
Our elite by-appointment-only Bethesda facility launched in 2021 and sets the standard as the pre-eminent results-focused gym in Maryland.
Our proven ‘maximum results, minimum time’ model has helped thousands of clients across the globe achieve truly life-changing body transformations in remarkably short time frames.
“The Goldman Sachs, Real Madrid and Apple of Personal Training. They’re that far ahead of the field.”
Our Ultimate Performance Bethesda gym is a world-class gym with a world-class team that will change everything you know about personal training.
What sets our $10m Bethesda gym apart is our exceptional facilities, elite trainers and unparalleled body transformation results which are built on a culture of excellence and accountability.
Based in the city’s historic post office building, and a stone’s throw from Bethesda Metro station, this truly is the place ‘where the excuses stop, and the results begin’.
Unlike any gym you have experienced before, we do not offer memberships at Ultimate Performance Bethesda – we are a private personal training-only gym.
Unlike any personal trainers you have ever worked with before, our goal is not to retain you as a client for as long as possible – our singular focus is delivering you ‘maximum results in minimum time’.
This unique model means that over the set time you work with us, we will help you achieve the absolute maximum results possible and give you a measurable return on the investment your time and money deserve.
Our personal training team at Ultimate Performance Bethesda is forged from the elite of the elite across the globe. We remain the best because we hire the best – only 1 in every 100 applicants makes the cut for a career at U.P.
Our results-driven approach runs contrary to 99.9% of the personal training industry – our trainers’ success is measured and incentivised solely on the quality of their results and the value they deliver to the client – not on the number of sales they make.
Our dedicated personal trainers are your partner every step of the way, inside and outside the gym, guiding, supporting and educating to help you accomplish your goals.
Our Wisconsin Avenue Bethesda gym is private and by appointment only, so you never have to queue for equipment, you are guaranteed privacy, and you can feel free and unfettered to train hard and achieve your goals.
Our personal training methods have been refined over the past decade with tens of thousands of clients to ensure the maximum efficiency and effectiveness of training to achieve the best results possible.
We understand that every client is unique. So, every one of our personal training programs is unique too – tailored to each individual client’s goals, needs and abilities to ensure we deliver maximum results and return on investment.
Our methods and results are not based on the quick-fix mentality of the wider fitness industry. We pride ourselves on giving you the tools and real-world information you need to maintain optimal and sustainable health for life.
We take your results personally. Everything we do, inside and outside the gym, is focused on giving you the best outcomes possible. In fact, the average transformation at our Ultimate Performance Bethesda gym requires just 2.7 hours per week of gym time to achieve the kind of results we are renowned for.
We leave no stone unturned from helping you with sleep strategies and stress management, to smart supplementation and nutrition, and bespoke training and diet plans constantly tweaked to elicit the best possible results.
We understand that ‘results’ are more than just skin deep. Our scientific approach to body transformation means we track and measure every metric possible – from body fat and blood pressure to sleep and mood – so you can see quantifiable improvements before your eyes.
We live and die by our results. No personal training business on the planet can demonstrate the depth and consistency of results with thousands of clients that we can.
Promises are easy to make, but for anyone who is prepared to work hard and follow our guidance to the letter, then these life-changing transformation results can be yours. Here are just some of the incredible results achieved by our clients here at our Ultimate Performance Bethesda gym.
