McAlister Training
Big on hustle, bigger on heart.

Our Approach

Find out what makes our approach and our fitness studio unique from other gyms in San Luis Obispo.


what makes us different

At McAlister Training we’re all about approachable, effective, and fun circuit training classes and one-on-one personal training.

We’re big on high energy, not high intimidation. We’re big on hustle, but bigger on heart. And most importantly, we love our San Luis Obispo clients like family — because to us, they are family.

Our studio isn’t like other gyms in San Luis Obispo. We specialize in small group circuit training classes that combine cardio with strength training and emphasize functional movement and proper form. With small groups (less than twelve), our workouts can be easily adjusted to fit individual needs and happily accommodate a variety of fitness levels.

Our small-but-mighty facility offers everything necessary to get in a great workout, including experienced instructors, versatile fitness equipment, and a positive, supportive community.

At MT, we don’t believe in a “one-size-fits-all” workout, nor do we prescribe to the "no pain, no gain" mantra.

Instead, we believe in having fun, befriending our workout partners, and building more capable bodies that allow us to do all the things we want to do — both inside and outside of the studio.
