The 220 Story The idea for 220 Fitness originated from conversations between best friends, Heavyweight Boxing Champion Wladimir Klitschko and Matteo Baker, who originally planned on opening a gym in New York City (at 220 5th Ave. - hence the name 220, which also translated into Second to None). Matteo and his immediate family decided to venture back to Los Angeles and return to Matteo's gym roots, relying on his previous 15 years of gym experience to recruit the most talented gym-team in the city.
The 220 Concept 220 Fitness combines the smaller, specialized studio based facilities with the more traditional common gym philosophy, allowing members more flexibility when it comes to working out. 220 offers over 60 classes a week, including everything from Zumba, to Surfset, to boot camp style classes, to yoga, and so much more! We even offer classes on the beach, which is located 2 blocks away! 220 Fitness offers one-on-one personal training, semi-private personal training, and small group personal training. The personal trainers are dynamic, fun, and extremely knowledgeable offering results-oriented workouts that combine resistance training, cardio workouts, plyometrics, core training, functional fitness and flexibility. 220 is ALL about having fun and enjoying fitness. The staff’s primary goal is to make every workout a productive, gratifying and happy part of each client’s day. We take great pride in giving you a wonderful experience every time you step into the gym!
