West Kept Secret

West Kept Secret (WKS) was born in 2011, by founder Marissa West. She began experimenting with different workout modalities to finally achieve the fitness results she was looking for. She developed the WKS methodology combining cardio, strength training, and pilates into one high intensity interval format. The workout began with a focus on 1 on 1 personal training clients, but quickly grew to small group classes after the *west kept secret* was out in town! The results are in and the CLT community is hooked!

In October 2020, WKS opened their 2,200sqft studio space in Dilworth and sold over 50 Founding Memberships prior to even opening! So far in 2021, they've gone live on Instagram via Shape Magazine and Hollywood Life and are now known as Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Olivia Culpo's go to workout in Charlotte. They've won Charlotte Agenda's Top 10 Small Business Person Award and are back to back Charlotte Magazine's Best of the Best (BOB) Award winners for Best Cardio Class and most recently added, Best Boutique Gym. Their method has developed a cult-like following that has spread by word of mouth and social media like wildfire in Charlotte. Local influencers can't get enough of the intervals, trainer personalities, and amazing music! To keep up with this fun, energetic, and dynamic brand, "STAY SOCIAL" with us on IG below!
