Building community and changing lives Since 2011

Welcome to Element Gym, where it's all about community! We are the first co-working and collaborative - benefit corporation gym in the world. One diverse gym leading social innovation with its co-working and collaborative business model making community our top priority.


Established in 2011 as, A place with purpose, a business of the people, by the people, for the people.  



To use business as a resource for good in the community.


Vision Statement

To set the standard on how-to-build authentic sustainable resources for the community through Element branded ventures, opportunities and programs.  



We believe with our low risk - high return collaborative business model, we can continue to create positive community impact; not only through the Element brand but also through partnering with organizations that share a similar mission of "building strength with community purpose." ELEMENT is committed to increasing community health by creating exercise and fitness programs that raise awareness of long term preventable illnesses such as obesity, diabetes and heart disease. Our team will not stop until the community becomes a healthier place through the ventures, projects and programs we put towards our legacy.



As we continue to build social and economic value in the community, IMPACT remains our #1 priority! 

We call it, "Doing well and also doing good!"

The return on the efforts we put forth for social change come in forms of appreciation including smiles and "thank yous" from people in our community. These intangibles continue to motivate us to remain innovative in our ventures and programs that promote healthy living.
