WE ARE A FULLY EQUIPPED
Prototype Training Systems, home of CrossFit Prototype, is located at 50 East Main Street in Westborough, MA. We are a 7000 sq/ft boutique training facility offering personal training, large and small group training, nutrition consulting, specialty training, and much more!
Our goal at Prototype Training Systems is to build the GREATEST relationship business for our clients and cultivate the greatest human development culture for our team members. As Maya Angelou said: “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” We are a values-driven facility. Our core values are Family, Integrity, Helping others, Excellence, Fun, and Growth. Every decision we make is based on those values. We are the segue into a healthier, more active lifestyle. That responsibility means introducing clients to new activities, making them comfortable with working out in any environment, and giving them attributes they can display with pride. We believe in hard work.
Our own hard work will be recognized by our clients and friends and will encourage them to work harder in the face of any challenge. We believe in the prescriptive model, not a one size fits all approach. We prescribe the best programs and services to our clients that will suit both their needs and wants to maximize their results. We believe in the long haul. Continual progress is necessary for self-actualization; if you’re not moving ahead, you’re falling behind. We set milestones and celebrate when they’re reached. And then we reach further. We don’t take ourselves too seriously. We’re comfortable in our skills and can joke about our weaknesses. However, individual growth is integral to the development of both ourselves and our community.
Fully Qualified Instructors
We believe in science. We believe in ongoing education. We’re committed to the peer review process, the application of cutting-edge science, the debunking of `myths, and the benefits of active debate and discussion. Above all, we believe that a better me + a better you= a better us!
