What is Lion Heart Athletics?

We're based on the simple idea that sometimes the people who need the most help with their health just can't afford it. Realizing the urgency of the need and motivated by Christian principles, we decided to help! If you know you need to make a change but don't have the money to hire a personal trainer, we're here for you. Our mission is to transform lives through proper training and teachings in order to reach your goals.


We serve the Allentown area in Pennsylvania! We have big dreams of reaching a larger area someday.

Win the War!

If you find that you're losing the battle for your health and overall well-being, we exist to help and equip you. We want to turn the tides and see you win the war!

We're Here to Help

Hiring a personal trainer is often too expensive for those who need it most. We offer our help completely FREE to those who meet our eligibility requirements.

Mind, Body, and Soul

Your health requires more than a flash diet. Let our trainers help you build a lifestyle that will last. Together we can get you feeling energized and happy!

Supporting the Cause

If you like what we're all about, then consider sponsoring our next success story. Even a small donation could make all the difference for someone who needs help.


You're about to take the first step toward a better life. To start the process we just ask that you tell us a little about yourself. The form will only take five minutes to fill out and we'll reply to your email quickly with our decision. Our services are free so you have nothing to lose!
