Athletic Lab is better defined by the equipment we do not have than the equipment we do have. We don’t have any recumbent stationary bikes, no elliptical machines with inset TVs, no preacher curl bench, no seated calf raise machine, no smith machine, and definitely no adductor machine to ‘sculpt the inner thigh.’

The reason you’ll never see any of these or related pieces of junk equipment in Athletic Lab is because we are a training center dedicated to achieving elite levels of fitness and performance rather than a ‘health’ club trying to lure you in with fancy machines rather than world-class training programs. Gimmicky equipment and easy-way-out workouts will never have a place at Athletic Lab because they have nothing to do with what our staff or our clients are trying to accomplish.
