About the Name

Admittedly Rare Air Fitness it is not the most traditional name out there, no denying that. Credit goes to my friend, Ed for inspiring the name.

We were deep in the throes of preparing for our first Ironman experiences in 2012. One day, after a long training session our conversation turned to the finish line and how just crossing that line puts us in a small percentage of the world to accomplish such a feat. We would be breathing rare air, so to speak, much like the small few to have successfully climbed Mount Everest.

Those two words stuck in my head throughout the whole process of preparing for that Ironman. Later it became the springboard for this company. Rare Air, to me means so many things: striving for your absolute best, finding and pushing past the limits you have in your mind, and making a choice every single day to pursue excellence.

It is what embodies the drive of this company.

It is my sincerest hope that I can help each and every person that comes to Rare Air Fitness strive to achieve their absolute best, whether that means losing some inches off the waistline or achieving a physical goal. We each have our rare air to chaseā€¦
