DavidBartonGym Revolutionized The Workout

When DavidBartonGym opened in 1992, there was a focus on 3 things: 1. creating an exciting energy that affects one’s emotions and awareness  2. helping people get the body of their dreams 3. learning what every other “health club” was doing and then doing just the opposite. The first thing you will notice when entering is that DBGym looks nothing like your living room. This is because we want you to forget the outside world while you are here. It is a landscape for the senses, carved out of imagination and built to get your heart racing before you ever step onto the treadmill.

When a magazine like Interior Design includes DavidBartonGym in their list of the world’s most innovative ideas, concepts, and designs of the year, it is no wonder so many details of ours are often copied. Yet what has never been duplicated is the experience, the rare alchemy that occurs when we fuse the pulse of a neighborhood gym with the soul of the local culture. We take cues from a neighborhood’s history like the punk and glam of the East Village or outdoorsiness of the Seattle area and modernize it in our unique way. When details from the lighting to the person who greets you to the music are orchestrated just right, we can recapture the excitement of our first gym venture. We are devoted to sharing that feeling with our members.  When you step out of the 9 to 5 world and into ours, we want you energized. We want your imagination dwarfed. We want you to feel like your whole life just got better. We want you to be surrounded by a world that serves as a monument to how successful we have been at changing bodies. Tangible reminders that anything is possible, the only limit being one’s own imagination and energy.

You can pump iron anywhere and there are many beautiful showers in the world in which to luxuriate but there is also something extraordinary you will find here. That is the DavidBartonGym team, because it is how we engage with our members that distinguishes us. It is how our members feel like part of a group of people working towards the same goal, to help each other achieve success. We believe that people should lift each other up.

Through the years, we have delivered to many people the bodies they asked for and this is due to our trainers, classes, equipment, and staff which add up to an environment in which members like to spend a lot of time working out in. Many of our members spend more time with us than with their own families and it is how we help them look and feel better that makes us who we are. It is how we take care of and motivate people that makes us more than a business but an institution.
