After doing CrossFit for years and trying OrangeTheory for a spell, I’m so grateful to be at Kilo for a multitude of reasons: 1) The coaches know their stuff beyond measure; they are the smartest, most educated athletic trainers I’ve ever come across. They train trainers so that tells you a lot! 2) The gym is immaculate so if you’re worried about the typical gym cooties, you don’t need to worry about that there. 3) The programming works your muscles well. You’re appropriately tired and sore but don’t feel like you’re going to die afterwards. There’s lifting classes daily and conditioning twice a week and they both provide a wonderful body workout. 4) I regret not joining sooner because Kilo is fabulous from the clients to the staff to the facility.

As a person who's done CrossFit, OrangeTheory, and various other places, I've found this to be the best by far and here's why: 1) the gym is immaculate and sparkling clean; 2) the programming is perfect because you have a daily choice between upper and lower body strength training and the workout is always a challenge but in the best way possible, meaning you feel it but not like you're going to die. And they change the programming regularly so boredom isn't an option; 3) Wednesday and Saturday is conditioning which is SUPER fun with sleds and ropes, etc.; 4) the personal attention is AMAZING! The three coaches want you to succeed more than anything and they teach you in a kind, supportive and fun way. More...

KILO's PRIMEIGHT group training system provides an amazing blend of group training camaraderie and personalized fitness programming. Most group fitness solutions are heavy on the fun, light on the results.PRIMEIGHT provides a huge serving of both. The periodized strength training you do in each class has been thought through every detail - from the position of each squat rack in the gym to the hand position of each particular exercise. It's really an impressive system. I have been in the fitness industry for over 13 years and nothing I have learned remotely approaches this system in terms of efficacy and organization. I have been training with the PRIMEIGHT system online for over a year now, and I have put on 10 lbs of muscle and dropped 5 lbs of bodyfat. My body looks more defined than ever before. I actually flew down to Huntington Beach specifically to experience this masterwork of fitness firsthand and learn how it is organized, so I can implement its principles at my own gym in San Francisco. The KILO crew is top notch. Steph, Kelsey and Alex are seasoned strength coaches and leaders in the fitness industry. If you are looking for an amazing weight training experience, why not go to the trainers of trainers? In an industry that is full of gimmicks it is refreshing to see a facility that operates with such a high degree of integrity and competence.OTHER HIGHLIGHTS: Top of the line equipment, VERY clean facility, NO unpleasant gym odor, GREAT MUSIC, COOL T-SHIRTS, EXTREMELY HIGH QUALITY PRE and POST WORKOUT SUPPLEMENTS.

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...

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.

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...

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.

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.
