How Is ASC Different?

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

1. ASC is the area’s first and only outdoor/indoor workout program: Most group exercise programs in Arlington are only offered indoors. However, ASC brings the gym outdoors. We primarily train outdoors, although we also offer some indoor workouts in the winter.

2. ASC eliminates tedious machines like treadmills, stationary bikes, and rowers: Most group exercise programs keep you stationary and make you spend a lot of time on tedious machines. Machines may help you burn calories, but they don’t improve your balance, coordination, agility, athleticism, or strength. ASC eliminates tedious machines and trains you with dynamic, athletic movements and functional equipment.

3. ASC is more effective AND more fun: ASC takes the good from other group exercise programs (accountability, expert guidance, great music) and removes the bad (tedious workouts and no time outdoors). Our program is more effective AND more fun.

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 summer 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.

Over the next ten years, Pete led hundreds of outdoor workouts for thousands of people in and around Arlington.

More recently, ASC expanded its schedule to offer two different class formats and six workouts each week.

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