About Us


We started Resistance Athletics because we love community. We believe that living life alongside a strong community of friends and family who encourage us daily allows us to accomplish more than we ever thought imagineable. As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.

We started Resistance Athletics because we love fitness. We love how fitness is one of the few things in life that is truly objective, and we get out of it exactly what we put into it. There is no subjectivity with how we get stronger; no office politics we need to play to improve. We either put in the work or we don’t. And after we do put in that work, that confidence we gain from doing so goes with us everywhere we go.

We started Resistance Athletics because we wanted to combine our love for both community and fitness.

Our mission at Resistance Athletics is to build a diverse, supportive and joyful community of talented and hard working individuals who kick ass in life together – both inside and outside the gym.

And we want you, as a talented, hard working and healthy individual, to join our family. Come join us for a free intro class this week!

We have over 3,000 square feet of prime workout space, along with a separate lounge area to fellowship and commune with the rest of the Resistance Family. Our space offers lockers, bathrooms (including a shower), communal lounge area to fellowship after you break that sweat!



Since the very beginning, we have had with us Vision for Enrichment (“VFE”), the best sports massage therapy group in Los Angeles. Angel Kuo and Rich Lorton are two amazing therapists who work full time in the VFE space at Resistance and work on many of our existing athletes and coaches. Rich has more certifications and degrees than most people’s families combined, and his 25+ years of experience and understanding of the human body affords him the knowledge to efficiently find and rectify any causes for pain points quickly. Angel is a exercise Athlete and Olympic Weightlifter, so she understands our movements and affected pain points and can relate to our discomforts quickly. She also offers a more holistic and differentiated approach to sports massage therapy.

VFE therapists are trained to apply specific techniques and modalities of deeper tissue work that are utilized to achieve quicker recovery, increased physical mobility, and pain reducing results. Each session will be catered specifically to your specific pain points and where you need help and recovery. We are grateful for all the Resistance athletes they have helped over the years and our partnership to date! Please reach out to Angel at angelkuo20031@gmail.com or Rich at vfe.rich.lorton@gmail.com should you wish to book an appointment!

We are proud and excited to announce that we have partnered up with the Heliyo team. There is truly no one in this world who is more genuinely excited and passionate about the anatomy of the human body and its movement mechanics than its founder, Corydon Marrs (Doctor in Physical Therapy, Master of Science in Physical Therapy); the man has earned multiple degrees in these very subjects. He brings with him a staff who is not only passionate and focused on optimizing the human body, but were also all former competitive exercise athletes, so they genuinely understand what we do.

Heliyo is a full-service athletics performance company that provides a variety of personalized services focused on optimizing athletics performance for athletes of every caliber. Heliyo’s mission is to help athletes train smarter, recover stronger and increase overall performance, while minimizing and preventing future injuries. Their keen understanding of the human body allows them to quickly identify structural imbalances with athletes’ bodies and subsequently guide them to returning to the body’s most natural and optimized movement patterns.
