Testimonials

Gym is impeccably cleaned and maintained. The equipment is in great condition. The gym owner is open to suggestions for new equipment. The staff is very friendly. I haven’t used a personal trainer, but I’ve gotten to know several of them, and they are very nice. Xcel has a much different community feel than other gyms I’ve been to. It is very welcoming and friendly.

Eli Pratt

Xcel has been my favorite gym for over 20 years, and I’ve been to most of the gyms in the Salt Lake valley. It’s very clean, great inventory of equipment and classes, never too busy, and a friendly and helpful staff. I’ve trained with Jess for over six years and can’t recommend him highly enough. With an extensive background in yoga, kickboxing, and weight lifting, he adds a lot of variety and keeps things fresh and effective. I moved out of state a few years ago and had no issues canceling my membership, and joined immediately upon my return. Xcel is a quality gym with quality people.

Lisa Draper

Xcel fitness is honestly the best gym I have ever been to. I have tried other gyms in the past but I always came back to Xcel! The trainers and coaches always push me hard and are concerned about my growth and progress. All of the classes are great and every class I’ve been to has been amazing! I really recommend becoming a member here!
