There are many options for college students who are back in Berks County for the summer to keep up their fitness routines, whether they're varsity athletes or just looking to stay in shape.
Fitness centers welcome college students. One customizes fitness programs for the athlete who is looking to gear up for his or her return to school on the field, court or track, and others offer good deals with full club access.
Premier Athlete Performance (PAP), Wyomissing, offers a 10-week summer program for college students starting in June. Most students, ages 17-22, are playing a sport for an NCAA Division I, II or III school. Males and females can participate, and many sports are represented.

Address: Spring Township.
Occupation: Owner of Premier Athlete Performance, Wyomissing.
When and why you began to exercise: I began exercising when I started playing sports at age 8. I trained to become better in sports as I grew older.
Type you do: I train athletes to become stronger, faster and get in better condition for their sports.
Hardest hurdle to overcome: Starting our own family business is a hurdle in itself.
Biggest exercise achievement: My biggest achievement is seeing young athletes achieve their goals at our facility and within their sports.
How exercise helps you: Exercise gives me the energy to feel, think, parent, train and live better every day.
Tips to others: Everyone regardless of age or physical ability should work out hard enough to lie on the floor looking at the sky or ceiling and ask themselves, "Why did I just put myself through this?" That is when you know you had a great workout. Do that each time you work out and you will see the results you want.
