Our Facility

We are a Seattle gym with a great 4,000 square foot facility with high-quality, functional training equipment and wide open space to move.

We are the only indoor gym that have artificial turf in our facility in the Seattle area. The majority of athletes compete on turf and we wanted to simulate their training under those conditions.

At VICE, specialization is our wheelhouse. Your access to our facility will be accessible anytime during the week and will be implemented with your own key access card in the near future.

    What is exercise physiology?

    Exercise physiology is a specialization within the field of kinesiology. These medical professionals study the body's responses to physical activity as well as how the body adapts to physical activity over time. Exercise physiologists are responsible for conditioning clients to higher levels of physical fitness and improved health, while staying tuned into safety issues that can be associated with single session exercise.

    What is CSCS Certification?

    Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialists® (CSCS®) are professionals who apply scientific knowledge to train athletes for the primary goal of improving athletic performance. They conduct sport-specific testing sessions, design and implement safe and effective strength training and conditioning programs and provide guidance regarding nutrition and injury prevention. Recognizing that their area of expertise is separate and distinct, CSCSs consult with and refer athletes to other professionals when appropriate.

    What is a ISSA Certification?

    The ISSA offers a general fitness certification course for personal training and six specialized fitness certification courses, including fitness nutrition, sports nutrition, strength and conditioning, exercise therapy, senior fitness and youth fitness. The student obtains the status of "Elite Trainer" after completion of three courses and "Master Trainer" after completion of six courses.

    Instruction is based on exercise assessment, nutritional planning, fitness instruction, sports medicine practice, and post-rehabilitation training.
