Seventeen years ago, as my career as an elite athlete was winding down, I joined my first commercial gym. It was nice as far as membership enterprises go, but it lacked the versatility and creativity I had experienced working with the athletic coaches at the Olympic Training facility in Colorado Springs.
The following year, I took over the training responsibilities at a gym in Los Angeles, and the framework for ASYLUM Gym LA was created.
It was clear, even then, that the fitness universe would evolve. It was inevitable that smaller more versatile pieces would replace larger bulkier equipment, and that authentic athletic training could be scaled to benefit most skill levels.
But this new, free form, dynamic universe can be tricky to navigate alone, and professional guidance can be costly for the average person.
I’ve always believed that professional fitness instruction should be accessible to everyone, not just the fortunate few.
At ASYLUM, we are dedicated to making that belief a reality.
We take pride in the variety of equipment we are able to offer either the seasoned athlete or the weekend warrior. We can accommodate any skill level, including rehabilitation. And as your body gets stronger, so will your confidence … and that’s when the fun truly begins.
We also believe that you, the professional fitness instructor, deserve a facility with resources vital to your craft; a facility that will enable you to prosper and not just exist. In the process, we seek to enhance your career, stimulate your personal and economic growth and better promote the health goals of your clients by providing a nurturing environment for you, the people who lead them.
So come in and GET COMMITTED!
