Solv is not your high school.
And we’re not like other gyms, either.
We don’t like drama, cliques or judgment.
I had a pretty good time in high school. I was the new kid on the block, I had a strange ‘scally’ accent, didn’t know anyone and they didn’t know me and so I was able to play sports, be a nerd, jock, emo, skater and musician all at the same time haha.
Lifting weights changed my life. I had confidence. I had knowledge. I knew how to deal with stress. I put my hand up in class, looked people in the eye and felt good about myself.
Years later, I founded Solv to share that same gift with others.
We believe that exercise is a celebration of what your body can do, not a punishment for what you ate.
We believe that you have to find something you love—and celebrate success—before you’ll ever be motivated to work out or eat properly.
We believe in progress, not perfection.
We believe in coaching.
And we believe in making sure you’re here again tomorrow.
Have there been “gym jerks” along the way? Of course! But since I own the gym, I can keep them out of Solv. The “we’re-better-than-everyone” garbage doesn’t fly here.
That means Solv will never be the biggest gym in town. It means we’ll probably never win or even go to a CrossFit competition. But we’ll always be the best because of the people under our roof.
If you want to get fit, have fun and forget about high school, come in and talk to us. We’re not salesmen, either.
