Alan suffered the tragic loss of his 6 year old daughter to childhood cancer in 2012 and threw himself into fitness as a way to cope with the grief. As time passed he began to see others within his close circle succumb to diseases that could have been prevented with the right fitness and nutrition plan. These incidents not only formed his perception on physical fitness and nutrition, but are also the cornerstones to the PPC Empire.
In 2013 Alan became a certified personal trainer through the American Council on Exercise (ACE) as well as a Certified TRX Instructor. He began working at a well-known gym franchise, but soon realized that some couldn’t afford the fitness plans designed by big box gyms. He realized to really make an impact he needed to find a way to provide high quality fitness to more people at a reasonable cost. He opened his first fitness studio, PPC Fitness, in 2013.
We created PPC Fitness knowing we wanted it to be more than just a "gym". Having worked in traditional gyms in the past, we knew we needed to create a concept that would provide our members with the most effective tools for success. This meant we needed to offer individualized training programs so that our members knew exactly what to do as soon as they walked through the doors. This also meant we needed to provide an intensive learning environment led by intelligent and caring coaches. Most of all, we needed to foster a welcoming atmosphere and community that made everyone feel a sense of belonging.
PPC Fitness is built upon the mission to bring inclusivity and positive vibes to the fitness space. Our team and our members help us every day to make the gym a more welcoming and positive place to be, and we are extremely grateful!

No, the PPC program is based functional training with an extreme focus on technique and executing the movements properly. If your form breaks down, you don’t continue the reps.

Yes, Memberships fit our training philosophy best. We believe in consistent, intentional progression toward a set goal. Everyone is welcome to drop in and try PPC. However, this isn't really a place or program that you "drop into every once and a while." PPC is a place where you come to train with an intent and purpose.
One must be sane to think clearly, but one can think deeply and be quite insane.
