Woman Owned

About Required Fitness

Required Fitness was founded in 2013. We are a privately owned, locally owned, woman owned gym. We want to reach out to individuals that appreciate a safe and non intimidating environment in which each member is looking forward to healthier longevity and creating a sustainable work out program, whether it be cardio, strength, flexibility and wellness. We wish to build a Community (of health enthusiasts), Faith (in which you choose to honor), Family (family health and fitness).

Meet The Owner

If you haven’t met Deannine Cerbone, you should. She is the sole owner of Required Fitness, a personal trainer here, and a former body builder. She is someone you’ll definitely want to know! Don’t be afraid to say hello!

Seasoned Pros

Our History

We have a history of owners, personal trainers, and members competing professionally, and winning body building and body physique competitions.

The gym was originally named American Body Works, and was renamed to Required Fitness by Mat Duvall (RIP: 1972 – 2013). Mat was a former IFBB professional, owned Required Fitness and was a personal trainer here. He was acclaimed as the man with “bodybuilding’s strongest arms,” and won NPC Nationals competition in 2003.

The current owner and one of our personal trainers, D’Nean Cerbone,  won the 1990 NPC Colorado competition. In addition the gym has seen many personal trainers and members train, compete, and place professional.
