Makena means ‘gathering place’ in Hawai’ian

Gather with us.

We are more than just another gym.

The times have changed. If there is anything we have learned these past few years, is that we  humans have not only a desire but a need for COMMUNITY.

As head coach and leader of Club MĀKENA, I provide a strong foundation for not only our current members, but new faces too.

At our Club you will be welcomed, supported and anything but  judged. We know these to be the vital components to a nurturing environment.

The facility is very well kept, open air, and a background pulse that one might even feel before stepping foot into the Club.

Please accept my warm Invitation to show you around, introduce you to some very sweet people and get your journey underway.

Drop us a line or just cmon in.

In a time when even finding a like minded crew can be hard to find, along comes Club Mākena. I’ve dreamed of having a facility that served about every purpose and individual could want and need. Most of all, at the core is the need for  a community of like minded humans to share space, to network, to grow with.

In so many aspects of our world things have changed, what has come to light is the need for human touch  and bonding. Club Mākena is just that place. We are all inclusive, non judgmental, and ready to receive you at the front door.
