Looking for Private Gyms in San Fernando Valley?

The Strength Academy is not another impersonal big-box gym. Nor is it like public gyms, letting anyone come and go. This fitness facility is one of the few in the area that boasts a private gym program, giving you the privacy of a home or garage fitness space, but with strength equipment and private personal trainers to provide you with a complete training program. Since one of the core services of the Strength Academy is the education of personal trainers, there’s no shortage of qualified private personal trainers, male and female to get you to next level fitness using effective routines based on science.

Gym with Personal Trainer

Studies show that half of people starting an exercise program will drop out in the first six months. What can improve that number is having a qualified personal trainer to help keep you accountable to your goals. Not only will you not have to worry that what you are doing is right, but also having the right personal trainer can help to motivate you to keep making progress. Below you’ll see what makes personal trainers say that the Strength Academy is the perfect place to meet with their clients, and how that effects you as a new member of the gym.

Personal Training Studio

The design of Strength Academy has both personal trainer and client in mind. By using a scheduling system and keeping access to the facility floor restricted by timed passcodes, trainers and clients alike can rest assure that they will have enough space for their training sessions. Strength Academy believes this a main benefit that private clubs have over commercial gyms and public gyms. New members can also be confident in putting extra weight on the bar, even if it is their first time with basic training since their personal trainer can ensure they use proper form. Public gyms and commercial gyms do not always have trainers available for their clients. This is both a problem of overall safety, since exercise equipment can be complicated, or dangerous when someone needs instruction or a spotter, and it makes for a poor training environment, where members are often left to their own devices. Having knowledgeable personal trainers on staff makes for a motivating environment for clients, and keeps them coming back to work on their fitness goals.

Personal Trainers meet their clients at our Gym!

A private personal training gym like the Strength Academy appeals to personal trainers as it is a good place to conduct their business. Having a private fitness studio provides a good place to take clients through basic training, whether it’s the squat rack or resistance equipment, first time trainees or not, having a place free of distraction helps keep trainees focused, and having privacy can also keep clients coming back, since they don’t have to think about creepy onlookers. Personal trainers who use our gym know that the clients are going to love it, and be more likely to start up gym memberships than they would elsewhere. Personal trainers like this, as it makes it more likely that folks will stick to their exercise routine.

One of the Best Private Gyms in Los Angeles

It takes a great place to keep personal trainers and clients coming back. The Strength Academy does what it can to make an awesome facility for everyone. With all the gyms in Los Angeles, standing out is hard to do, but the Strength Academy still manages through several unique touches not found in gyms in the area. Some of these differences are apparent the first time you walk in the door, while others may not be so obvious at first. The most expensive, fancy gyms may seem like they have it all, but underneath they are usually managed by people who just don’t care as much, which can negatively impact the experience for both client and trainer.

Our address is 6314 Sepulveda Blvd Suite B, Van Nuys, CA 91411, United States.

Below you can read how Strength Academy stands out against other gyms in the area. Most notably, Strength Academy offers unmatched privacy, an environment that promotes more effective workouts, and unique amenities not found in other gym memberships.

Private Gym Program

Having a fitness center with private changing rooms and private showers is a good start to ensuring that members feel comfortable in the gym. But why stop there? Strength Academy ensures members hit their fitness goals by allowing private sessions for up to two hours. The member and trainer (if the member has a trainer) are given a temporary passcode to the fitness studio that expires at the end of the allotted time. This means that no one who is not a part of your scheduled session will be permitted in the gym. There is no more uncomfortable feeling in the gym than when you feel like you are being stared at by other members. Your workout is tailored to you, so should the space you do it in. 

Privacy has another benefit, mainly that workouts get done in less time when you have all the equipment to yourself. Regular gym-goers and trainers know, having to wait on someone to finish making their Instagram story in the squat rack to finally finish with a poorly executed quarter squat that they feel the need to scream about is not conducive to an effective strength training program. Silly stuff like this just wastes everyone’s time, and sadly is the norm in many commercial gyms. Luckily if you have the gym to yourself, you can clearly cut down on instances of this… unless you’re the one planning on showing Instagram how much weight you can unrack and not squat, in which case now you’ll have an entire facility to do this.

Effective Workout Environment

In addition to using privacy to make for better workouts, Strength Academy further supports its clients by having tons of useful equipment available combined with ample space. While basic training programs may not require vast amounts of equipment and space, more advanced protocols may. Also, while fitness levels in the United States may not be impressive as a whole, smaller demographics who devote themselves to fitness are approaching athlete-level abilities. It is for these advance trainees that require added complexity that the Strength Academy shines. While beginners will have exactly what they need, advanced fitness folks will keep hitting their goals with Strength Academy’s equipment. Here’s a short list of some of the specific equipment available:

  • Cable machine
  • Squat racks
  • Boxing ring
  • Boxing equipment
  • Free weights
  • Kettlebells
  • Exercise bikes
  • Deadlift platform
  • Tractor tire
  • Bumper plates

If you can’t find it at Strength Academy Athlete’s Club, you likely won’t find it anywhere else either!

In addition to having lots of available equipment, Strength Academy also has lots of available interior space, making functional training such as farmer’s walks, walking lunges and any other exercise that requires a larger than normal area plenty of space to get after it, and no one to trip over while doing it. Again, this helps maintain the club’s ability to keep workouts effective. 

While you will find exactly what you need to for you workout, you won’t find a bunch of useless equipment piled up in the way. Old equipment is removed from the studio as soon as is possible to keep open space a priority.

Unique Amenities

Lastly, what makes Strength Academy one of the best private gyms in Los Angeles is our unique amenities. Most notably are our Recovery Club and our NASM Certified Trainers.

Soreness, CNS fatigue and injury accompany hard training sessions. Sadly, they pose a large deterrent to exercise programs, especially for sedentary populations. Strength Academy sought out to do everything we can to alleviate the stress of training, thus was born the Strength Academy Recovery Club.

The Recovery Club is where members go to speed up their recovery after tough workouts. This is accomplished by using a state of the art tool called NormaTec. NormaTec uses dynamic air compression to massage affected areas, increasing blood flow to promote faster healing rates. Leg muscles, hip and arms have special attachments to accomplish this.

Taking the time and spending the money on regular massage is not really necessary when you have tools like NormaTec. 

Another awesome amenity that sets Strength Academy apart is our NASM certified personal trainers. NASM is one of the most respected Personal Training Certification bodies in the United States, and for good reason.

With exercise programs and progression rooted in scientific studies, clients can be sure they will have a safe approach to training. 

NASM’s model for training, the Optimum Performance Training Model, has been used for over 2 decades to get people fit. It starts out simple, with the client’s ability to stabilize core movements. After competency is achieved with this, strength becomes the focus, first with endurance, then eventually with maximal force production. Lastly, an athlete is forged with the power portion of the program, aiding in the client’s ability to perform explosive movements.

More About our Location in Van Nuys, Los Angeles

We’re conveniently located on Sepulveda Blvd, close to where the I-405 and the I-101 cross over each other.

There are a lot of advantages to being located in the Van Nuys neighborhood of Los Angeles, and very close to other neighborhoods such as Lake Balboa, Sherman Oaks, Valley Glen, and Panorama City (the location where the famous TV show The Office was filmed!).

Many of our clients live in the San Fernando Valley (or just “the Valley”, for those of us who live here!) but due to our proximity to the 405, it’s very easy for people to get to our location from different parts of the city.

Information about the Van Nuys Neighborhood Council and their meetings can be found on their official website, www.vnnc.org.

A lot of our clients from the San Fernando Valley come from the Sherman Oaks area. Here’s a link to the Sherman Oaks neighborhood council.

For most Sherman Oaks residents, our location on Sepulveda Blvd is just a 10-15 minute drive away.

Right in our area we also have the Van Nuys Airport (their official website is here) and Woodley, where you’ll find the Woodley Park Archery Range, Woodley Lakes Golf Course, and Lake Balboa/Anthony C. Beilenson Park.
