IHP is focused on what matters, Your health. Reaching your own personal fitness level should revolve around only one factor, YOU. In addition to having a variety of equipment available, our encouraging and certified staff will be there to help make getting in shape as easy as possible and motivate you along the way. 

Our one-on-one performance training programs provide the ultimate in specialization, whether you are rehabilitating a delicate back, recovering from surgery, or getting ready for Olympic competition. An IHP performance coach has a college education with multiple nationally accredited certifications and extended certifications within their specialty. They also have the ability to continually assess a client’s optimal performance level and design a plan accordingly. Our performance coaches are ALWAYS SUPPORTING you with nutritional and travel fitness programs to expedite your true greatness. 



Native to Boca Raton for the past 20 years, the Institute of Human Performance is home to members of all ages and abilities, including elite athletes. With equipment you won't find at any other gym and access to world-renowned trainers, IHP's fitness center membership is the most cost-effective gym membership in Boca Raton.

The Institute of Human Performance provides daily, weekly, monthly and yearly memberships at reasonable prices, with options for personal training sessions as well. Full access to advanced equipment that you won't find anywhere else.

Our staff is friendly and recognized around the world for their knowledge in training. We pride ourselves on an open, welcoming atmosphere that differentiates us from other gyms and fitness centers.



Here at IHP you can train like an UFC fighter or Professional Boxer without taking punishment like one. Our highly-trained Performance Coaches are very experienced and have the knowledge and skills to provide you with an excellent outcome. Get a great workout in and develop top notch striking skills as well. 

One of the modes of training that has always been at the heart of the IHP training methodology has been “hitting the mitts” (i.e. punching and kicking). The development of footwork, cardio, movement skill, and self confidence that comes from learning to hit the mitts is unparalleled. 

This is why it’s such a hit at IHP and nationwide.
