    About Wheelhouse Academy

    Wheelhouse Academy was born out of the notion that learning the right way to work out is just as important as the workout itself.

    That’s where the idea of the Wheelhouse “Academy” comes in. As a member, you will not only learn workout routines, you will come to understand why you are doing certain movements and the benefits they have on your health. We always wanted to create a gym where learning the right way to work out is as important as the physical results.

    Finally, we designed Wheelhouse Academy to have a strong social component. We want it to be a place where it’s comfortable to work out, and a warm and comforting place to hang out, too.

    Join a concept where you can do more than improve your body, you will improve your life.
