The Promise While other gyms work really hard to get you to join, we put all our efforts into making sure you keep coming back. 80% of people who join gyms quit after the first three months and never return. While that might be a great business model for other places, it goes against everything we believe in. Truth is, we’d rather have 500 healthy and happy members than 3,000 who never show up.
Our Pledge

In short, you’ll work out smarter not harder.


Here's how it works.

We assign you a fitness coach and together we map out your goals and assess your overall health. We measure your RMR (Resting Metabolic Rate) to establish a baseline of the minimum calories your body needs in a day with no exercise. At the same time, we measure your AMR (Active Metabolic Rate) that tells us the heart rate at which you burn the most fat. We use these two numbers to calculate your optimal workout heart rate to achieve the best results. Lastly, we give you a monitor to use during all your exercises to ensure you’re always working out at your ideal heart rate. *

*Additional fees apply for coaching, assessment, RMR, AMR and heart rate monitor.
