How Is ASC Different?

Here are five ways that ASC is different from other group exercise programs:

1. ASC is Arlington’s first and only outdoor/indoor workout program: We primarily train outdoors, although we also offer indoor workouts in the winter.

2. ASC eliminates tedious machines like treadmills, stationary bikes, and rowers: Machines may burn calories, but they don’t improve your athleticism or core strength. We focus on dynamic, athletic movements and functional equipment, such as dumbbells, kettlebells, and battleropes.

3. ASC workouts are led by an athletic, credible expert: You won’t find any junior coaches or rah-rah cheerleaders leading ASC workouts. Our workouts are designed and led by our Founder Pete Leibman. Pete has 15+ years of experience coaching thousands of people. He’s also the author of two books and more than 300 articles on peak performance.

4. ASC makes you feel like you are part of a team: All ASC workouts include partner and group drills. You leave each ASC workout feeling like you are part of a team. ASC also organizes social events throughout the year to help members connect with each other outside of workouts.   

5. ASC is a small, local business that keeps Arlington clean, green, and healthy: ASC shares its revenue with Arlington County Parks and Rec. By joining ASC, you also support Arlington’s parks, trails, and nature areas, and you keep Arlington clean, green, and healthy.

How ASC Got Started

ASC started in 2012. At the time, ASC Founder Pete Leibman was teaching a weekly Sports Conditioning class for Gold’s Gym in Ballston. The class had become extremely popular, often getting over 100 people per class (photo below).

One day, Pete asked the group if they would be interested in doing a workout outdoors. Everyone was interested. Three days later, Pete hosted ASC’s first outdoor workout.

Since then, Pete has led hundreds of outdoor workouts for thousands of people in and around Arlington.

While most of our members have been with us for years, we are just getting started…

Workout Formats

Every ASC workout is different. However, there are two formats for ASC workouts:

ASC Fast improves your speed, endurance, and athleticism. These workouts include sprints, body weight exercises, and partner/group drills. We usually run bleachers, too. These workouts are outdoors all year long at the stadium (turf, track, and bleachers) at Washington-Liberty High School in Arlington, VA.

ASC Strong improves your full-body strength and athleticism. We bring a full gym (dumbbells, kettlebells, battle ropes, etc.) to these workouts. These workouts are outdoors at Lubber Run Community Center from April to October and indoors from November to March.

Workouts are designed and led by ASC Founder Pete Leibman (featured below next to the ASC van aka “the Buff Bus”).
