Fitness that is independent of the noise.

Body Arc

Body Arc is a space for those who believe in building strength, health, and wellness independent of traditional definitions of beauty and health. This is a space for everybody and every body, especially those who do not feel supported by traditional fitness spaces.​ 

Beyond fitness, Body Arc also utilizes art to create a unique and comforting space. We display a diverse range of artists in the space to help bring comfort and creativity to the community. Through the blending of art and embodied movement, we seek to create a haven of wellness that is welcoming to all.

Body Arc brings an understanding that inclusivity is more than simply not participating in exclusion. To us, inclusivity is consciously defining a vision of strength, health, and wellness that considers ALL people. This includes those with disabilities, queer people, or anyone whose body doesn’t conform to corporately defined standards or expectations. 

We provide information that clients can trust has been vetted and is applied in their best interests, while providing a welcoming space that supports every client’s unique experience and self-efficacy.

Our Services


Body Arc offers personal training with a team of qualified trainers and instructors who value inclusivity, autonomy, personal development, and body positivity. Our trainers seek to create space for clients to show up as their fullest selves by providing thoughtful communication and a welcoming environment that is aligned with Body Arc’s values.

Each of our trainers has a unique training style, and we do our best to match prospective clients with the trainer who best fits their needs.

Trainers have complete control over their training, schedule, and rates.
