Matt is an excellent trainer who helped my son and I with our strength, fitness and diet. He is able to push you to achieve results while making you laugh. He’s the best in the business.

I started working with Matt after a severe back injury. Through stretch therapy and mobility I can honestly say I physically feel the best I can remember. Thank you Matt and the team! Highly recommend!

As a personal trainer, who works with clients on all levels AND is someone who has had their own weight loss journey, Primal Fit is an incredible gym. Every day I am coaching classes I am excited and so happy to be there, work with these clients and experience the incredible community that Matt has built over the years. Matt is an incredible mentor and not only helps his staff become better, but bends over backward to help Primal Fits clients to have access to incredible classes (that are literally life changing, literally walk inside and there is an entire WALL full of people who have lost weight and become the best versions of themselves) a time tested nutrition plan to help clients achieve their goals, access to a beautiful and clean facility, and he truly and genuinely cares tremendously about the well-being of each individual. If you are looking for a gym to train 1-1, variety of small group classes, stretch therapy, nutritional advise, guidance from top tier certified personal trainers and a place where you will always feel welcomed, appreciated, and excited to come back for more- Primal Fit is FOR YOU!!!!!!!

I had the fortune of connecting with Matt at a point in my life, where I had hit a bit of a rut, in terms of my diet and my workout regimen. I was by no means unhealthy; however, I wasn’t working out with the kind of energy and focus that I have previously had. Also, I maintained a disciplined diet, but the routine of it was getting really boring, and I wondered if I was really eating the best balance of foods. Enter Matt, who took time to learn about my routine and my diet , who worked out with me, who gave me tips and recipes, and I’m thrilled to say that he reenergized me. I am once again excited about the diet, the exercising that I’m doing and the direction in which I’m taking my health. Thanks, Matt, for all you’ve done!

I’ve known Matt since High School. He’s always had a strong work ethic and a willingness to push himself to get better. Over the years, I’ve watched from afar as he’s taken that same approach to what he’s doing now in the fitness space. Anyone can get a gym membership or hire a personal trainer, but if you want someone who genuinely cares about your well-being while taking the time to get to know you as a person, Matt’s your guy. Whether you live in Miami or anywhere outside of Florida, if you’re serious about making the right changes to your life, I would highly recommend you reach out to Matt. You won’t regret it.

Only good things to say about Primal fit and the team. I decided to start working out and do something for my body and health and I am SO HAPPY I found them, the place has a great set up, the work outs are well designed for all your body needs, so far I have been in classes with Billy and Jade, and they know how to bring the great vibes and ambience to the work out, not to forget that so far, the people in the classes I have been in, are very nice, it makes you feel comfortable. If you are on the fence, do your body and mind a favor and just give them a try.

Primal Fit is just the *gem* of a Miami gym that I was looking for. The great energy, the customized small group classes, the variety of training techniques, the flexibility of classes offered in a day (5 different times per day - morning and evening!) and the location cannot be beat. As a former member of Legacy Fit, Barry's Bootcamp and Orange Theory - all great Miami studios and class programs - there is something very special about the team and the family-feel at Primal Fit. Definitely encourage new prospective members to check out a class - you will be hooked!

Matt’s the best! I’ve worked with him for a couple of months now and he understands life gets busy and he doesn’t hold you to unrealistic expectations. I am not a gym junky and was super nervous to join. His workouts are challenging but encouraging. He has helped me gain strength and confidence in the gym. I Love that I’ve seen him train profesional athletes so he knows how much he can be push each individual client. The gym also has a homie positive vibe. Absolutely love this place. The classes are fun and positive. Highly recommend.

Primal Fit has a great atmosphere, with lots of diverse people of all levels. Matt and Billy are always switching up the workouts to keep you interested and coming back for more. Highly recommended!

Often I wonder if you understand and fully grasp your power - Soul healer. It's a rare gift, for your care is true and genuine. It's been three years now, and my back is fully functional, and no more need to get prescriptions from doctor, who warned me I should stick to pills. Well, he was wrong, though he may dislike it, but doctors are as humans as us all. Primal Fit is like an Ark of countless wonder. Ask your many clients to write anonymously in a blanked notebook of how their lives have changed towards a jubilee of improvements, and their thoughts will circle the Earth. Through your many past tribulations, you have found your true purpose - Healing others. Your magic topples all pharmaceutical tricks for profit rather than healing. Outstanding, you are.

Amazing spot right here! Met with the owner Matt for a few and can't say enough good about all the amazing opportunities he's creating to help people get fit!
13:09 13 Aug 22
My husband and I have worked with owner Matt Pack in a variety of capacities over the past ten years including training and weight management. Primal Fits group training classes have completely transformed my husbands body. Matt and I primarily work on weight management, he’s my first call when I’m lost and he always redirects me towards my goals with patience, accountability and love. Matt has changed our bodies and lives and I’m so grateful to him.

Listen. This is not just another gym. This is a total new experience. If you want to seriously commit to getting fit and have long term results, this is the place. Matt is simply phenomenal. He is not for quick fixes, he is going to teach you how to have results with a reasonable long term plan that is effective and fun. Me and my wife walked in the gym one day and asked if we could do personal training. Matt, helped us in every possible way. He created a program specific for us always encouraging and explaining everything. Every single workout with him has been fun, challenging and engaging (while feeling totally safe). You can’t get bored and every time you feel you are challenging yourself a little bit more. Matt encourages you and has some great music in the gym. You really get pumped up in a positive way. Unfortunately, me and my wife are only visiting for about one month but we had some of the best time ever training here. We both wish we could stay much longer! So … if you are serious about committing to a long term plan while having fun and being challenged, just come here. The place is super nice and clean and Matt is simply the best. Trust me, talk with him and listen to what he says. His philosophy and attitude are great and you will quickly realize he really knows what he is talking about. You will not easily find someone who is as knowledgeable and as humble and nice at the same time.

I had to drive an hour to get there and I would gladly do it again. My wife lost 15 pounds in the first two months

The best gym I’ve gone to in the area. The staff is the friendliest and the workouts are tough but rewarding.

Just sign up! Matt & Billy create a highly welcoming, highly engaging and highly addictive experience that turned me into a morning person and pushed me to limits I would have never thought possible on my own. Its a great balance of group comradery, with the music blasting and familiar faces, and 1:1 focus, you can expect that Billy will remember you did 15 lbs last week and should be pushing for 20 this week! Overall, money very well spent. In just a short month Im stronger, leaner but most importantly more confident in my abilities and my potential. Highly recommend!!

Matt Pack is a true professional. His technique for sports recovery is outstanding. He has a great understanding of body movement and how to trigger your body to recover optimally. Has ‘fixed’ me a few times from overuse injuries.
01:08 17 Apr 22
This is the first gym I've ever joined and I must say that so far it’s been amazing, the trainer Billy is very knowledgeable, professional and makes working out enjoyable even though the workouts can be tough. The gym itself is very clean and the atmosphere is very welcoming. All in all I definitely recommend Primal fit as for me it’s been a very rewarding and empowering experience.

Primal Fit is the best gym I’ve ever been to! I’ve always been pretty in shape (I grew up dancing and cheerleading) but after graduating high school and stopping cheer and dance, I had no motivation to get myself to the gym and work out. Not only that - I had no clue what to do in the gym. I started coming here in June 2021 to try it out, only expecting to continue my membership through summer. However, I quickly fell in love with the gym and even looked forward to coming every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Not only have I progressively gotten stronger and lost body fat, but I feel like I have found an amazing community. The people that work and work out here are special. Everyone lifts each other up and wants the other to succeed. I never thought I’d make friends with the people I work out with, but I have, and we’ll even check in on each other when one of us isn’t in the gym that day. Billy and Matt are true professionals and know exactly what they are doing! If it wasn’t for their help and encouragement, I would not have stayed as long as I have. I am so grateful that I found this place when I did. Even though I live far away, it’s more than worth the drive.

Primal Fit is a great gym with a great vibe and knowledgeable trainers who push you in all the right ways. Group training sessions are a set menu but the trainers always pay close attention to your form and sometimes even change up the exercise to fit what you need to make sure you get maximum benefit. I’ve been training with Billy for the last two years and he is amazing.

Primal fit Miami is a truly an amazing facility with a warm inviting ambiance to become a better you. I joined after a recommendation from my daughter, who was not a gym person until she came here. Friendly staff and admirable coaches, who are also great examples of strength and fitness. They offer versatile fitness equipment, strengthening and conditioning programs, great hours, shower rooms are available, and cleanliness throughout .The workouts are intense, challenging, but fun. Coach Billy is creative and is always encouraging us to do our best. He takes the time to understand our individual weaknesses and his concern for our safety is key. I travel from Broward, but the staff and the workout programs here are worth it for me.Coach Matt is always there to greet you and start your day off with great nutritional advise, upon your request. He is extremely knowledgeable on nutritional lifestyle changes. A conversation with him is always enlightening.I highly recommend Primal Fit Miami.
02:57 08 Apr 22
I've done both the strength and conditioning classes here with Billy and loved them! Matt and his team are friendly, professional, and strike the right balance of encouragement and challenge. Will be back again soon.
14:20 07 Apr 22
Great gym that offers strength and conditioning classes. Very clean and lots of various equipment to use. Groups are small and coaching is great. The owner is friendly and knowledgeable!

I started out at Primal Fit in August 2021. As a naturally skinny guy I was never able to successfully gain weight. Within the first couple months of going to Primal Fit, I was able to gain 5 lbs, 3 of which were pure muscle mass. In total, I have gained almost 20 lb. Matt and Billy not only got me motivated in the gym, but they motivated me outside of the gym.Before I started going to Primal Fit I also had a lot of lower back pain, which Billy was able to help me with since the first day I was there. He gave me stretches to do everyday as well as personalize different exercises to help my lower back. I am really glad to be apart of the Primal Fit family as I truly think it has changed my life.
20:33 06 Apr 22
I am so grateful to have found such a good fit for my fitness journey at Primal Fit. To be given the opportunity to work out with others yet get individual attention from an enthusiastic, knowledgeable trainer is a winning combination for me. I was expecting to get in shape physically and haven't been disappointed. What I wasn't anticipating, however, was how much the challenging workouts, accountability, encouraging words and sense of community would positively carry over into other areas of my daily life. A renewed sense of discipline, accomplishment and joy follow me each time I walk out the door after a workout. Keep up the good work, Matt and crew! Your commitment to each one of us individually and as a group is genuine and greatly appreciated.

Love this gym... they really care about you and there are a very good atmosphere.If you are planning to change your habits or you want a great place to challenge yourself this is the right place for you.
19:33 05 Apr 22
I have had a great experience with Primal Fit. One of my previous issues with gyms is that they are too crowded and I get overwhelmed. I love the group sessions that are personalized to my goals. I’m very happy with the results and I can say this is the best gym experience I’ve ever had. Def recommend it!
19:02 05 Apr 22
Primal Fit is "The place to be". The coaches, the atmosphere, environment are incredible. And the group you work with, your workout mates.... are Cool people. Everyone is focused in doing their best, which is a great motivation. I am a Karate Instructor here in Miami Shores and I had never got my A$% beat as hard as they do it here. If you wanna get in shape fast.... PRIMAL FITis the place to be.
15:53 01 Apr 22
Billy is an amazing trainer. He is always checking on you and he always finds the best exercises and the best way to do it.If you have an injury, (I have a few) he makes you feel safe with the workouts. He is fun and he easy going, but he will push you if he sees that you can give more.Overall, I finally found a place that makes me feel great every time I leave a class, and I can also see how my body has changed. Matt and Billy are two amazing people and badass trainers.

Primal Fit Miami is the best! When I was looking to join a new gym a few months ago, I was immediately impressed speaking with Matt. After coming in to see the space and meeting Matt, I knew this was the gym for me. Working primarily with Billy during the small group training classes, my physical and mental fitness has dramatically improved. Both Matt and Billy have motivated me tremendously throughout my journey and progress would not have been possible without their energy and encouragement. I always look forward to my workouts and highly recommend Primal Fit Miami to all!

The spot to workout at if you want good music, great equipment, and the trainers will train you to be the best you.

I have been working out at Primal Fit Miami for almost 3 months- and I love it! I am taking small group strength training and conditioning classes. I am not only getting incredible workouts- I am so enjoying myself.I was in good physical shape when I began but my body is getting stronger, leaner, and I have muscle definition I did not have prior to Primal Fit! Matt Pack, the owner, is fabulous as is group is trainer Billy Casimir. Billy has me laughing out loud and the mood of the classes are so upbeat. We workout hard but have fun! The music is great too! I am very happy with my experience at Primal Fit Miami and highly recommend this gym.

I started going to Primal Fit Miami in 2019 and I absolutely love it. Matt and Billy are amazing coaches and are so knowledgeable about everything fitness related. The exercises are always so unique which keeps the gym interesting so I never get bored of the workouts. To this day, sometimes Billy will give an exercise that I’ve never done before. I also have become way healthier outside the gym because Matt and Billy incorporate nutrition into their program. I have so many tools now, I can intermittent fast when I want to, I know to limit the processed foods that I have, and the best thing is, I feel way better mentally and physically. Another great tool that they offer is their InBody machine. Every month I am able to track my progress without having to worry about how much I weigh. Sometimes my weight will stay the same or go up, but I will see that I have actually gained muscle and lost body fat, which is amazing!! This gym is not like any public gym and I am so lucky to be able to go here and enjoy my time working out!!

As a trainer I work with athletes from the youth level to the NFL level. To accommodate their needs it was necessary for me to find a gym which would allow me to train them to prepare for their seasons. Fortunately Matt has created a phenomenal facility in Primal Fit. At Primal I have everything I need to help my athletes get better. My guys are able to push their limits to help improve their own field performance. And Primal Fit isn’t just for athletes. The environment and people make it a great place for everyone to train. Every time I train one of my general population clients they tell me how much they enjoy working out at Primal. I would highly recommend Primal Fit to anyone looking for a great gym whether they are a professional athlete or just someone looking to get in shape and improve their health.
17:01 21 Mar 22
Primal Fit is an excellent gym for personal and small group training. Matt and Billy have extensive knowledge in their craft and will motivate and put forth a plan of success for each member. I highly recommend Primal Fit.
13:28 21 Mar 22
Primal Fit is a fitness community that empowers everyone that steps in. The owner Matt creates an environment for everyone to have fun and laugh, not only motivating his clients, but everyone who steps in there. Can’t recommend this place enough. GO GET PRIMAL FIT.

Update - 1 year later. I love this gym even more. It’s become my refuge. I’ve been doing the group session with Billy. I can’t say enough wonderful things about Billy he’s simply awesome! Even in group sessions Billy is adaptive to individual needs. He is a professional who truly cares about his clients. Sometimes I have to bring my kids (9 & 6 yo) and he keeps them busy! They adore him too!Original Post:I’d give 10 out of 10 if I could. Matt is simply awesome. He is extremely knowledgeable, personable. He keeps you accountable without out the guilt trips and shame. He understands the struggle. He’s a personal trainer for the entire family!

Unreal fitness experience, a diverse workout and staff. A work out that leaves you with RESULTS
22:34 18 Mar 22
Matt and Billy are amazing. Been coming here for nearly a year. They've make sure you get a strong workout in while keeping in mind one's limitations. Great place to workout.
20:55 18 Mar 22
There are so many superlatives i can use for this gym, but I'll keep it simple. I've been part of the gym business for 32 years in all its facets and I can say confidently Matt Pack, the owner is what this industry needs more of, no ego. He is professional, personable, immersed in knowledge, and not one size fits all approach is refreshing and welcomed by every person I have seen walk through Primal Fit doors. Billy Casimir is one of the nicest most incredible trainers I have been around. His ability to regress the exercises on the fly so it fits an individual in a group setting is not an easy thing to do while keeping the rest of the class in a flow, but he does it effortlessly. He is a consummate professional with the know how to match. I am super happy to be a part of this incredible growing gym and energetic atmosphere. For anyone out there thinking of starting on a program with a real plan of action you must give this place a try. It will definitely be worth your time and you'll be glad you did.
01:48 18 Mar 22
There’s a unique positive energy inside this gym. You can tell the trainers and members have good chemistry that makes it an enjoyable place to be. Workouts are tough yet creative and fun. Easy access to I-95 and great location, even if you don’t live in Miami Shores.
01:01 18 Mar 22
this gym is sick!!!!!! they had every tool you could wish for and then trainers were knowledgeable. iw roked out early morning here every morning during my stay in Miami and it SET THE TONE for my vacation. 10/10 would recommend
23:33 16 Mar 22
WOW!! this gym has everything. I was blown away by the welcoming environment each coach had, they created a smallfitness family that welcomed me and gave me a fantastic workout. sommany good vibes. 5/5 refomnd this gym, my favorite small private and class based gym in miami!!!!!
23:31 16 Mar 22
Matt has created an amazing gym and community!I attend the group workouts with Billy who has been personally invested in My fit journey. He texts me with check-in's, he modifies workouts based on my specific needs, he pushes me to train harder.I'm able to track my progress on their in-body machine(which I've had to pay extra to use at other places... at primal fit its free of charge).I'm really in love with my experience at this gym, and the encouragement I get from both of them. 10/10 recommend!
22:03 16 Mar 22
Effective and efficient training facility with impeccable equipment and cleanliness. The owner, Matt, is a wonderful level-headed mix of professional and personal. Matt is consistently making members feel welcome, valued, and apart of something more than merely "a gym".Billy, my trainer, is one of the best trainers I have ever retained. Billy cares about more than just meeting your fitness goals by constantly inquiring about injury-related prevention, health, and other extrinsic factors that can have an effect on each exercise. Indeed, Billy's zeal and epistemophilia, particularly in this field of health and wellness is unrivaled.Additionally, the pricing is extremely affordable (especially for Miami). Indeed, it is true to say I am getting much more than I am paying for out of being a member of Primal Fit Miami.
