What Sets Us Apart from Other Gyms in Santa Barbara? Our Community.

Fitness is  an essential part of the SB lifestyle. Which explains why there are almost as many gyms in Santa Barbara as there are Starbucks in Seattle. From boutique fitness studios to nationally-recognized names (and everything in between), there are plenty of places to spin, stretch, flex, and get your sweat on. But there’s something about our club that sets it apart from other gyms in Santa Barbara.

What do you look for when it comes to gyms in Santa Barbara? 

This might seem obvious. But the best gym in Santa Barbara is the one that caters to your fitness needs. For example, if you’re training for a triathlon, then a fitness club with world-class Zumba instructors might not check all the right boxes. Similarly, if you’re training for the CrossFit Games, then a yoga studio could be a solid complementary training space. But it probably won’t get you into WOD shape. 

So, when it comes to picking the best gym, consider the question, “What’s the best gym for me and my specific needs?” And while that simple question covers the basics, we think the best gyms in Santa Barbara have to offer more than just the right equipment and classes.
