a workout that's everything but boring

you've never worked out like this

Our approach is simple: we add self reflection and community connection to a 1 hour bodyweight workout (no expensive equipment needed!).

We make it possible for you to workout from home and still feel connected.

why reinvent workouts?

ANCKOR exists because our founder Brian Von Ancken went through a big relationship change and did what a lot of us do after a breakup… worked out.
At that point, Brian was an early hire attorney at Tough Mudder and believed all he needed to take care of himself was diet and exercise.

But despite the bigger muscles and cleaner diet, Brian still wasn’t feeling tip top.

Over the next couple years, Brian learned that to be and feel his best he needed to dedicate time to more than just his physical health:

"Everyone is a house with four rooms: a physical room, a mental room, an emotional room, and a spiritual room. Most of us live in only one room at a time... but unless we go into every room every day -- even if only to air them out -- we're not a complete person." -Indian Proverb

Deciding to share what he learned from his own personal growth, Brian developed  ANCKOR as a place to check all the boxes of Total Health.  A place where you can check in with yourself, connect with others AND get in a great sweat. Sweat you soon!
