what we do

INTIMIDATING TO SOME. CHALLENGING FOR MOST. FIT FOR ALL.

Your time at the gym has become an essential part of who you are. It is a lifestyle choice that leaves you feeling strong, energetic, and refreshed. Some may spend two hours working out, others may only have time for a 30-minute sweat session, or maybe you simply want to wind down with a cool, low-intensity pilates class to clear your mind after a long work-day. We understand that your schedule is dynamic and that is why we have created the perfect mix of group fitness and personal training to fit in to your tight schedule. So, we've made the whole fitness thing an integral part of your lifestyle, but what about the energy in this place? It is unmatched.

The friendly, energetic, tight-knit community at Nex Level Fitness will have you leaving with a smile on your face. From the warm spirited person set-up next to you in class to the helpful trainers on staff, you will feel at home. Our functional fitness facility has organically grown into what it is today because of the people, like you, that inhabit it daily. We are not a specialized gym. We do not promote one type of training because we understand that fitness evolves. One day spinning, the next strength training, and the following jumping into plyometrics or keeping the beat in step-class. Our variety will keep you happy and keep you going! Therefore, leading a healthy lifestyle, in which longevity is the number one goal, will not feel like a chore anymore.

  Andrew Radcliffe   NSCA- CPT     NASM- CPT  "Definiteness of purpose is the starting point of all achievement." –W. Clement Stone  Growing up and playing every game and sport possible I realized the importance of physical activity in my life. When I was playing, I was happy. Nothing could make my day brighter than getting outside and just having fun. That is how I look at the gym now. I go to the gym, and there is quite a bit more structure and learning that goes into it, but I still feel like a kid playing.  Back in 2010, once I decided that I wanted to follow this path and make it a career, everything just clicked. I found a purpose that was not only making me happy but also making my clients happy. Teaching them how to “play” in the gym has made my life a very fulfilling one and I truly feel like I have a purpose on this earth.  Specializing in strength and conditioning as well as mobility techniques has allowed me to get the most out of my clients. Changing the way people look at fitness is truly my passion and I can truly say I am in the right profession.

  Christina Ehrlich    I have always had a passion for sports and fitness.  In high school I played volleyball, basketball and softball.  I studied Kinesiology at Temple University and graduated in 2011.  I was a Health and Physical Education Teacher for five years and I started CrossFit in March of 2014.  I fell in love with its high intensity and variety of movements.  In July of 2015, my two passions of teaching and fitness collided when I became a Level 1 CrossFit trainer.  I started teaching group fitness classes at night and I enjoyed seeing everyone smile, sweat, and reach their goals.  At Nex Level I love using my knowledge of CrossFit to program challenging and fun boot camp classes.  In addition to classes I enjoy personal and athletic training.  If I’m not at the gym I enjoy spending time with my family, practicing yoga, reading, and watching sports.         CrossFit Level 1 Trainer (2015), Health and Physical Education K-12 (2011), Bachelors in Kinesiology (2011), Masters in Education (2013)

  Kyle Gebelein   I have been into fitness for as long as I can remember! I grew up taking karate because my Dad owned a Tiger Schulmann's karate school franchise. I was 5 years old when I started karate  and also played some indoor soccer throughout my youth. After I stepped foot into the weight room at 13, I became obsessed. I was driven by the massive physiques I saw, knowing one day I would get there. I played some sports through school and did Brazilian Jujitsu for a bit, but always came back to the iron.   I went through many years of juggling passion with career choices until finally making the switch to personal training. I have a true passion for proper movement and getting people functioning at their highest capacity , and proper nutrition! I'm a nerd at heart, so always feel free to stop me for a conversation!

  Rudy Stroh   Rudy was first bitten by the Spinning bug back in ’97 when the Abington YMCA began offering the program to their members.  After a few months of spinning as a member, the Y asked Rudy if he was interested in instructing.  Jumping at the opportunity, he became Madd Dog certified without delay and never looked back!  Rudy’s high energy approach to his spin sessions creates a motivating environment with plenty of encouragement designed to propel his participants to the Nex Level!

  Karen Walter    I grew up playing various sports; tennis, softball, basketball, volleyball, and track & field. Practice and fitness conditioning was a way of life and that mentality has stuck with me to this day. It wasn’t until 2012, after having my second child that my fitness journey changed a little and turned into what I wanted to do.   I became increasingly interested in endurance running. I have completed 5k’s, 10k’s, 15k’s, half marathons, trail races, and in 2015, the VIA Lehigh Valley full marathon.In the last two years, I have fallen in love with trail running, and haven’t seen much pavement since. In the spring of 2017, I traveled to Asheville North Carolina for the Nike Trail Running Camp taught by my personal hero, professional trail runner, Sally McCrae.  Over the years, through numerous injuries, I have realized the importance of incorporating stabilization, flexibility, and strength training into my race training.  I enjoyed that aspect of the training so much that I wanted to share it with others.  In October 2017 I earned my CPT through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. My hope is to share my experience and teach others that getting in shape shouldn’t be a punishment. It’s an amazing and empowering lifestyle decision that anyone can achieve.

Nex Level has pushed me out of my comfort zone and into a life consisting of healthy eating and regular fitness. I highly recommend this gym to anyone who is looking for a gym that can transform your life. I was never a gym-goer and now I feel slighted if I miss getting there."
  - Paula Harland

"ALl about results"

Michelle Bauer and all of the trainers are committed to helping you achieve your fitness goals, whatever they may be. The environment is convivial and not the least bit intimidating. Every gender, age, and fitness level is represented and all are made to feel welcome. That said, Nex Level is all about results. Take one of their classes and you will sweat more than you thought humanly possible. In the end, you will reap the rewards for your efforts in how much better you look and feel.
