About IPF

When Walter Norton Jr. opened IPF in 2007, it was another accomplishment in a long line of significant achievements over 20 years of being in the sports and fitness industry. IPF was a unique opportunity for Walter to spend time personally with clients, including athletes, non-athletes, kids and adults, and to really affect lifelong change in people. Now, celebrating more than a decade in business, IPF is not only a state-of-the-art, high quality training facility in North Reading, MA, but also a place where some really incredible stuff is going on! Whether clients are having the chance to train with and learn from pro sports athletes, or the coaches are working with celebrities to get them buff for a movie, or the IPF team is running a workout to raise money for a local non-profit, IPF is more than a training facility; it’s a community.

ATHLETE TRAINING

IPF offers exceptional group training programs for young athletes that are designed to not only improve their performance at the gym and on the sports field, but also in life. Each athlete training program starts by teaching awareness of areas for improvement, which could include movement, strength, conditioning, or, most important, their mindset. The right coach can have a far-reaching impact on a young athlete; nobody in the industry takes this responsibility more seriously than IPF.

Upcoming Programs
