Our Philosophy

Arena was designed to help people control the narrative of their bodies and write a stronger story for it.

Our workouts are designed to help you improve your performance and move pain-free through strength and conditioning principles that favor functional movement.

Founders Chris Beck and Jordan Hankins opened Arena Fitness & Performance to help people find a balance between true strength training and cardiovascular conditioning. At the same time, their goal was to create a space that brings together like-minded people who strive to get better 1% better each day.

Chris and Jordan have been in the group fitness scene for over 13 years. During that time, they’ve seen the industry explode with maintenance-based programming. And while those programs may provide a high calorie burn - they lack a clear progression.

Those program styles initially create results, but they diminish quickly. So we made it our mission to improve upon the standard for group exercise by creating a program that will provide sustainable results. Our programs are built to help people master functional and athletic-based exercises while prioritizing multi-planar movement to give you a balanced approach. Did we mention, we have fun doing it!
