Very Knowledgeable trainers and a legit body pumping workout! Totally worth looking at, especially if you are not super into going to the gym. I felt like I got more out of a one hour workout than I have in years. Pretty sure I found a home here. More...

There is a reason that this place does NOT have one bad review! I discovered Kilo through a friend who raved about it after taking one of their classes through class pass. She said she loved it so much that she bought a membership. I tried it and although it's really not close to where I live or work, I find myself coming back at least once a week. All of their trainers are so knowledgeable and they cater the workout to everyone's specific needs whether they are a complete newbie to weight training or very advanced. The workouts are slow and completely focused on form (unless you take their conditioning class on Wednesday or Saturday) and you really won't have to worry about injuring yourself. The trainers are so extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the workout. It's really no surprise that people from all over the world fly in to attend some of the seminars they hold. I highly recommend trying this place out. More...

Amazing experience. Steffan was extremely attentive. I’ve lifted for years but within one hour he corrected me and I feel so much stronger.

I wished I lived closer. I would go and sign up for a membership if I did. Amazing coaching. I feel so good. I feel sore but in a good way. I've been lifting for years and i learned more in one hour than I ever learned by myself. More...

This place, these people, and their practice are all exceptional.  My wife and I are both patrons of Kilo, and it has, without exaggeration, changed our lives.  I am so grateful that these international leaders of training have landed in our backyard to create and support this community.  If you have not yet visited the gym for a class, do it.Kilo was founded and is run by trainers who train trainers.  Literally, strength trainers from different states, countries, and continents regularly come to Orange County to attend workshops at Kilo and learn how to better serve their own clients.  Their expansive knowledge is grounded in the goal of increasing strength while emphasizing safety and recovery.  They train professional athletes, people completely new to strength training (me and my wife), and every level in between.The founders of Kilo also happen to be amazing people.  Their personalities have enabled this diverse gym community to be both comfortable and motivating.  We now consider all of them friends.The gym itself has the nicest equipment available.  They created this gym to model strength training for everyone, and every detail was invested in to reflect that.On a personal note, you learn how to move and control your body in every movement you can make.  You become significantly stronger in both your large muscles and in those you do not know you have.  You become stronger with balance across ranges of motion.  You look way better... way better.  You are able to do things that you could not do before, and feel free to be creative in imagining all the things that can mean to an adult.Do yourself a favor: go to Kilo.

Best gym ever. Aside from amazing results the atmosphere here is great Steph ,Kelsey and Alex welcomes you as a family member not just as a student who trains there . Always walking in and get a smile from your trainers makes you feel welcome ( but trust me that smile usually hides a kick rear end work out ) Keep up the amazing work guys.

Came here for a front squat session with Jordan and I had so much fun!! It was my first time doing any of this and Jordan was extremely patient with me. She made sure I was comfortable and slowly helped me build up my confidence in lifting. Nothing was too difficult, but it was definitely still challenging. I'll be coming back on the other days to check out the difference exercises! More...

I have never had any injuries with his training...It must be 2 years now. I feel he is keeping me younger and I'm definitely stronger. Thanks Stephane! More...

The KILO crew are the best group of trainers I've ever met. Their knowledge seemingly knows no bounds. They're exceptionally well educated and understand how to bridge the gap between science and practical application. Regardless of what your goals are the KILO crew has the knowledge and experience to get you there. If you're a coach who's passionate about the field of personal training/strength & conditioning you will find no better mentor than Stephane. I highly recommend doing as many internships with him as possible as he understands exercise selection, short- and long-term periodization, and program design better than anyone in the industry today.

A well equipped, trainer owned facility. Steph and Alex focus on you like a laser 1-1 or in the group class. I've never had such dedicated attention correcting my movement and preparing my routine in advance.
It's hard to believe it costs less than a personal trainer at globo gym and doesn't require membership.
The owners/trainers are from athletic strength coaching backgrounds so keeping you healthy and mobile while gaining strength is in their wheelhouse.

I can’t say enough good things about my time at KILO.
They have an amazing facility, top level coaching, and world class education.
Their team is extremely organized, professional and really make you feel like you are part of the Kilo family. I can easily say that the Body Comp Camp is one of the best courses I’ve taken in all my 15 years in the industry. I seriously wish I had access to this kind of coaching years ago. I look forward to coming back as soon as possible!

I had a fantastic three day private internship with Stephane and the team at Killo Strength Society.

In three days we covered all of the content that I hoped in unbelievable detail and also had time to learn about other key topics.

Stephane is a fantastic teacher, has incredible knowledge and I'd recommend going to see him or attending his courses to anyone in the industry.

I've already paid a deposit for me next course in 2018

Alex, Kelsey & Stephane. The baddest squad in town. These trio always deliver the best coaching & guidance in every session. The facility is state-of-the-holy-sh*t-art & I’ve been enjoying & learning ever since I’ve taken my first class! KILO is for athletes who want to grow, progress & those who are up for serious challenges in whatever journey they’re in. I’ve coined the initials’ team as ASK, because whenever you ask they have every answer & sometimes they do it in unison. ☺️ Thanks guys for moving across the country & delivering all of how strength training should be! See you Sunday! More...

I've been training at Kilo for more than a year and it has made a huge difference in my strength, stamina and ability to do all kinds of sports. Most importantly, in 15 months I haven't injured myself. Alex and Stephane make detailed corrections on posture to ensure safety and results. The equipment is top notch, the training changes every week and I enjoy seeing the groups of trainers that come from all over the world to learn from Stephane, as well as the occasional training session with professional athletes who call Kilo their home. Thanks Kilo! More...

Everything I need in a gym. Knowlegable helpful trainers and state of the art, clean work out facilities. Strength training was definitely outside this dentist mamas comfort zone but I'm so thankful I found it. This gym, these trainers, and their carefully tailored program is exactly what I needed. It has been less than two months and already I'm noticing a huge improvement in my strength, posture, and overall wellbeing. I tried just about everything (acupuncture, massage, physical therapy, chiropractics, pilates) to improve my chronic work related neck and upper back pain and arm weakness/numbness and it only got worse, especially when compounded by being pregnant with and birthing two huge babies then nursing and carrying both of them. I'm still a beginner, I still have some pain, and I have a long way to go but I finally have some hope. Thank you @kilostrengthsociety and everyone supporting my journey to becoming a #strongmama ! #kilohb #kilo #strengthtraining More...

KILO Strength Society is the WHOLE package! It is a beautiful facility with beyond talented and skilled strength coaches. Their PRIMEIGHT classes are not your usual "group class" every exercise is adaptable to your individual level, whether it is your first time in a squat rack or if you are a experienced and accomplished lifter. Steph and Alex make sure your form is precise as to avoid injuries due to bad patterns we have adapted over time or just learned as a newbie. This place is the BEST New Year's resolution you could make for yourself! More...

This gym and these trainers are exactly what I need to regain my strength and body! As a dentist my back and neck have suffered and so has my job and my life. Compound my profession with everything that goes into having 2 kids under 2, lack of energy, sleep, time, and especially core strength... This was a recipe for disaster. My youngest is two and after countless dr visits, trips to the chiropractor, various forms of physical therapy and still feeling weak and hopeless I've decided it's time for a change! This gym offers the precise controlled effective strength training I need to heal and build. The small classes and one on one attention and coaching from the amazing trainers are perfect for this big time beginner in the strength training Arena. I need all the help and motivation I can get. The facilities are immaculate and the equipment is top of the line and brand new. They even offer nutrition counseling and high-quality supplements to enhance your workout. The classes are offered throughout the week at various times to make it easy to accommodate even the busiest of working moms schedule. I can feel muscles that I'm not sure I've felt in my entire life already! This mama is hopeful and so thankful I found kilo. More...

My training at Kilo has been first rate, and I've trained with coaches across the country. The instruction and attention to my form is the best I've ever had in a group setting. The classes are great for strength and body composition in men and women. I can't wait for the Strongman classes to start.What I personally enjoy most is the workouts are designed to provide measurable strength results in compound movements like squat and bench press, yet the workouts themselves are always changing so I'm never bored.Alex and Stephane are top rate coaches with impressive teaching backgrounds. They always seem to be getting interview requests and hosting interns. I'm learning a lot about my body and can't wait to see where I am a year from now! More...

Alex and Steph are career coach professionals, well trusted and respected by a worldwide community of trainers and fitness enthusiasts. They chose HB as their center and I couldn't feel luckier or happier. Each training session is well thought out, the instructions and tweaks are of great impact to performance, the equipment is fantastic, the atmosphere is always fun and relaxed, cudos to Kelsey who is incredibly responsive and caring. Also if you need help with supplements, they have professional knowledge and advice as well as some of the best products I've tried. their protein powder is hands down the tastiest I've ever had. Thanks Kilo for a wonderful space to become a fitter me. More...

KILO Strength Society is new to OC and is an excellent gym for anyone who is motivated to get a quality training experience.   It's a little bit more money than your average hyped up or fad type of gym but KILO's trainers have a tremendous wealth of expertise that helps you get a more effective and a smarter workout every time.   Right now the group sizes are still small so you get a lot of personal attention.   They are also great for anyone with injuries.   I'm working through back and hip issues with them and it's really helping me to re-establish some confidence in my abilities again.   The trainers balance each other out really well.  Everyone has great strengths to help you figure out the best options for you.   If you're in the area and really want to invest in your workouts and health, I highly recommend them!   #KILOSTRONG More...

I stumbled into Kilo out of curiosity after seeing their signs from the street. I've been looking for years to find a gym that truly understood strength and conditioning and when I first started talking to the coaches, I realized they finally came to HB. I had numerous injuries throughout the last 4 years that have limited my range of motion but after just 5 weeks I've seen a huge improvement in that department as well as feeling more balanced and stronger.The group setting is fun! Everyone I have met here has been extremely nice , whether an average Joe or seasoned athlete, it's been a fun environment for training. The way their system is set up makes it easy to stay committed with plenty of class times to choose from. As a self-employed person, its crucial to have options and there has always been a time that worked for me. The facility is extremely clean which I love in a gym, the equipment is easily accessible, and everything is very well thought out. When other trainers come here to train and learn, you know you have the best coaches possible, and at an affordable rate! I cannot say enough good things about this gym and am very pleased with my experience so far! More...

This is without a doubt the best gym I have been to. It is not a typical commercial gym but rather a facility with dedicated trainers and sessions/programs/camps. I have been working with one of the founders, Stephane Cazeault for about two years and the results have been fantastic. You could not ask for trainers with a higher level of expertise. Stephane has trained numerous pro-athletes throughout his career and his knowledge of training, program structuring, technique, nutrition (to name a few things) is unsurpassed. I trust his expertise to the extent I have my mother being trained by him. If you have serious goals (any kind of fitness or athletics) consider yourself lucky to live close to this gym and have access to these trainers. I travel from the Bay Area as often as possible to go over my technique and evaluate where I stand with my goals. I highly recommend Kilo to anyone that wants to see results! More...

A place I definitely have to check out in the future. The coaches are amazing and the facility looks perfectly equipped.

Q&A

We provide unparalleled coaching expertise and high quality equipment. We never throw a session together; we have built two years of results driven programs for our group training! We begin by making sure every client has proper technique and understands why we do what we do!

We all have an athlete inside of us, and together we will unleash the athlete. If you are already an athlete, we will bring you to your highest performance level. The training sessions at KILO will demand Intensity. You must be ready to work hard. Our motto is “Train Smart…Train Hard”. Intensity is key to success in the weight room. We will coach you and provide the correct environment. However, Intensity ultimately comes from within and we will trust that you give 100% every session.

We love that we are able to help each client gain confidence in the gym and achieve their goals! We believe in Strength. We want to make you comfortable with being outside your comfort zone. With a focus on the PRIMEIGHT: Squat, Front Squat, Deadlift, Overhead Press, Incline Press, Bench Press, Dip, and Chin-Up, you will reach new personal records.

I am one of three of the KILO Crew! We moved to Huntington Beach to follow our dream of opening up a facility in sunny SoCal. My two partners, the head strength coaches, Stephane and Alexandra and I have personally worked with each other for 5 years as co-workers and they have been my trainers. I cannot say enough about their commitment to their clients and the results they get! They have worked with everyone from general population to professional athletes with a total of 40 years combined experience. We are so excited to open our doors and start helping you reach your goals!

At KILO Strength Society, it all begins with Strategy. Everything we do is built with every component of physical performance in mind. There are no shortcuts to optimal health; our concept is based on knowledge, science, and results.

We understand that there is sometimes fear associated with lifting weights. We will guide you every step of the way until you become comfortable with Strength Training. We gain our members’ Trust by ensuring they know how to properly execute every exercise and explain the “whys” of what we do. Already comfortable with heavy lifting? You will reach new personal records with us and finally break those plateaus that have been discouraging you.

Our facility is a place for growth. We will guide you to become your best self. Our training programs are built with the belief of Progress. We coach and educate you so you can reach all of your training, health, and lifestyle goals. With Progress come massive gains, which will boost your confidence not only in the gym, but in all aspects of your life.

Services

KILO’s Signature Group Training is designed to take each client’s physical performance to the highest level. The 55 minute session will be based around the Power Rack and improving the PRIMEIGHT: Squat, Front Squat, Deadlift, Overhead Press, Incline Press, Bench Press, Dip, and Chin-up. We will teach each member proper training techniques to ensure optimal results. Progress is part of our foundation, and PRIMEIGHT has been created so you can train in a high-energy, empowering group setting with professional guidance.

An energetic and dynamic 30-45 minute energy system workout which incorporates modified Strongman equipment such as the prowler and log press, along with sprints and calisthenics. We are excited to welcome the TANK by Torque Fitness into our facility.
