“I travel to NYC for work every two months or so.

I go to Physical Culture Collective every opportunity I get. 

It is a fun, safe and effective fitness environment. 

I always have great workouts and intelligent conversations with owner Gavin Van Vlack. 

An unique workout facility. Can’t wait to go back!!!!”

I look for three things whenever I train at a gym or studio. Quality coaches, clean facility and a environment that promotes movement and growth. Nailing all three check boxes doesn’t happen often in fitness as many facilities rely largely on gimmicks and trends to draw people in. Physical Culture Collective (PCC) excels on my big 3. The space is laid out well, clean and has creates the energy to get things done. The coaching staff is top notch and actually knows the how, and, more importantly, the why behind what they do. Check this place out.

Gavin and I met at an Equinox on the upper east side in 2007.  He was one of their best and most senior trainers at the time. I had recently graduated from chiropractic school and was looking for a skilled trainer to network with.  
I spent about a month working out while keeping a keen eye on the trainers and specifically, their interaction with clients. Gavin stood out.  Not only in his approach to healthy movement and fitness, but also how  engaging and enthusiastic he was.  You could see his clients feed off his positive energy and the results were dramatic.  
Shortly after we were introduced I began referring my patients to him.  His knowledge of biomechanics and training paradigms was more in depth than most chiropractors and physical therapists.  My patients and I were thrilled.  So much so that I decided to train with him myself.  
Getting a personal trainer was something I never thought I would do but working with Gavin has been one of the most beneficial things I have done for my body, mind and spirit.

“Physical Culture Collective hits all the marks of top notch training. As a martial artist and someone with a few nagging injuries I felt safe in his care. He understands the demands of the moving body and the mental efforts to get you to the right place.
The facility itself is “active zen”.
Clean, warm, welcoming and most importantly has the coolest toys!”
