Thank you for choosing Fitness Central.
Fitness Central is the Lehigh Valley's Premier Fitness and Cycling retailer serving the entire Lehigh Valley, including Allentown, Bethlehem, Trexlertown, Emmaus, Macungie and Kutztown. Our fitness service runs as far north as Stroudsburg with commercial customers in New Jersey. We are the only business in the greater Allentown area to combine all aspects of bicycles, residential and commercial fitness sales and service under one roof. We are not just the best at what we do, we are the only ones who do what we do. Here is the story of how it happened:
Fitness Central was founded in 1995, manufacturing heavy duty power lifting equipment. All made in the USA, commercial grade racks, benches and other freeweight machines, Fitness Central equipment was well-known in the area as the best local made stuff. The retail location was based in Allentown by the American Parkway.
Fitness trends changed and with them, so did Fitness Central. In 2002, the current owner purchased the business and changed the direction the business was heading. It was moved to its current location on Route 309 in Schnecksville and we began selling more home fitness for average, everyday people. Eventually, all manufacturing was shut down and the business became retail only. We became the area's leader in home fitness equipment in sales and service.
The Fitness Central service department was added in 2005 in order to better serve all our customers. We began offering service contracts for commercial facility and became the full service, one stop shop that we are today.
In 2006, Fitness Central Bike Shop was born. It was started as a side project to supplement the summer season when home fitness is slow. Over the years as we brought in more brands such as Jamis, Scott and Trek, expanded our selection of accessories and services, led group rides, started a race team, and got involved with community events, we have become one of the areas best bike shops. In 2014, Fitness Central was awarded 'Best Fitness Store' and 'Best Bike Shop' by the Morning Call Reader's Choice Awards.
We have enjoyed much success on both the fitness side and bike side of the business. We attribute any success we have had to our goal of giving every customer a unique retail and service experience.
