Today we’d like to introduce you to Thomas Jankas.
Thomas, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I was a personal trainer for years; and also very aware of the boutique fitness trend going on. As a trainer I had built long time loyal clients based on having incredibly quality and using real fitness to help better their lives.
Both in training and the boutique world it’s become all about the money; most studios and trainers run workouts that aren’t really making people fitter; they’re all flash and no substance. Or they are over training people and causing injuries left and right. I decide it was time to bring a more well rounded and intelligent training to people.
With that, I went for it with my partner Anthony Carro, and we founded Fight Bike. Our studio use proper workouts that utilize some strength training, athletic training, body building (because let’s be honest everyone wants to look better too!) and cardio circuits. The key is in programming the week correctly; some days are really hard, some days are lighter and allow recovery; some days we focus on strength and weights; some days on cardio. All with a huge push for proper form and body mechanics.
This leads us to great results for all our members in all the facets of fitness.
Has it been a smooth road?
The road has been far from smooth. We joined the market place towards a peak; and the introduction of other business trying to take advantage of it. This led to lower prices than planned and less people willing to commit…at first. When we settled in and focused on quality; the evidence was easy to amount and prove to clients. Since then we often convert people who are usually timid on joining just one boutique gym; and building a strong community base who love us and each other. This makes a welcoming environment for anyone who walks in the door.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
We’re a fitness study focused on “real” fitness instead of trend and flashy fake fitness. We’re known for our outstanding training; expertise and attention to form; and results. We use proper programming and a combination of weight training in its various forms, some athletic training, HIIT circuits and slow paced cardio circuits to give a fully well designed fitness routine to cover all the areas of fitness. Also, to make a well balanced program that provides challenges, but also doesn’t over train people and lead to injury.
