Operating Owner

Rory Fitzpatrick

Why I started Driven Strength and Fitness? Growing up I was involved in track, football, and wrestling. Early in my high school I was introduced to strength and conditioning and saw how it transformed my body, confidence, and performance.

What was my hobby quickly became my passion which then became my purpose. In 2017 I founded Driven Strength and Fitness here in Exton, PA. My purpose was now to give to others what strength and conditioning has given me. Our Vision Driven Strength and Fitness strives to impact the community and people who live there. To achieve this we want to make a positive impact on our clients to increase their physical and mental well-being. Our Mission: Our coaching service improves athletic performance, health and fitness, and aims to meet all of our clients’ individual goals. We use top-notch training techniques with the most current evidence-based methods to improve these markers.
