34° NORTH GYM: Training System & Philosophy
Our philosophy is simple. We live and teach it every day. Following this system puts you on the path to becoming Superhuman.
The cost of our modern and convenient lifestyle is high. Our country faces record levels of obesity, diabetes, hypertension, heart disease and cancer. When looking back at the millions of years of human genetic evolution, it's clear to see that our digital-age lives are not aligned with the design of our bodies. We're not suggesting you go back to living in a cave, but will ask for a little introspection and a lot more movement.

Fitness & Nutrition Coaching
At 34 North, this isn't our job or even our career. It’s our Lifestyle. We train, we eat, we work, we rest, and we live in a way that maximizes our genetics because we want to be better athletes, family members and human beings. There are no secrets. Our coaches can lead you to the path they walk daily, but the choice to take it belongs to you.
A good training partner is priceless. They hold you accountable, keep you consistent and push you to do your best. When you join our community you instantly tap into a network of incredible training partners. If the saying is true that you are the average of the people you spend the most time around, then our community will improve your average.
34 North is not a destination or a fixed point. It is a journey and an aspiration. If you consistently approach your training with the intention to have an experience rather than checking some box, your transformation will be physical, mental, spiritual and never-ending.
Being of Service
Whether you come and join our community, drop in for a workout or just browse the site, we want to help you. After all, it's the reason we got into this business. We want to help people find what they need to be healthy and thrive. For some, that's peak performance and for others it's just getting started or coming back from an injury. Whatever your path, we've provided a wealth of free information in our knowledge base. It's our gift to you.
If you feel inclined to give as well, we greatly appreciate any donations you can make to LA's BEST. This charity helps provide after school programs, such as fitness, for children in Los Angeles neighborhoods most vulnerable to gangs, drugs and crime.
