Athlon exists to help you look, feel, and perform at your best and create the life you want. Unlike other gyms that essentially provide equipment for the inexperienced, or that take one-size-fits-all approach, our talented team of trained and educated coaches provide highly-personalized attention and scientifically-proven exercise and nutrition programs based on what you need and to help you become what you want. And it all starts with a 100%-free first meeting.

Athlon was originally created to fulfill the strength and conditioning needs for an “elite” fitness and sports performance facility for athletes in San Luis Obispo, Paso Robles and Templeton. A place where high level fitness and performance enthusiasts could trust they were getting the most up to date, scientifically-proven personal training strategies. We assembled a team of exercise physiologists, physical therapists, nutritionists, and athletic trainers to ensure the methods being researched and applied were high quality and multidisciplinary.

But we quickly realized that EVERYONE IS AN ATHLETE… Maybe not everyone is trying to make the Olympics, (like some of Athlon’s clients), but everyone generally wants to perform better in their life, feel good physically, and have energy leftover at the end of the day. And of course, EVERYONE likes having the lean, toned body of an athlete… So we began training EVERYONE in similar speed, strength and conditioning workouts as we do our pros! ! Home-maker athletes, construction worker athletes, “key-board” athletes, older-adult athletes, desk-jockey athletes, EVERYONE.

Most people want to change their body, fitness, and energy levels. The science and techniques behind athletic development CAN be applied to anyone, whether you’re 9 years-old or 90! With the right exercise selection, intensity level, and coaching you’ll see tremendous improvement in not only the way you perform but in the way you look and feel!
