August Coach of the Month



We are proud to recognize one of our extraordinary coaches who embodies what it means to be a rockstar Alloy coach. Meet Arleigh Thorp from Lava 24 Fitness:

Born in:
Walnut Creek, Ca
What does the Alloy culture mean to you?
Working out hard doesn’t always mean you’re working out smart. Building exercises from the foundation leads to the greatest gains. I love the diversity of the workouts, it keeps the member coming back for more and they’ve really helped me, personally, to increase my strengths goals. I think I’m functionally stronger now than when I was competing in collegiate athletics.
Favorite exercise?
Tie between kettle bell swings and chin ups
Least Favorite exercise?
Plank, specifically Around The World…so hard!
What do you do when you’re not whipping people into shape?
Playing with my dog, Bear. Recently mostly training for a triathlon
Who do you look up to & why?
Clients/members that have made fitness a daily part of their lives. Super peppy fitness people because I just don’t have that in me. I could never have been a cheerleader.
Guilty Indulgence?
If you were a superhero who would it be & why?
Your secret to success?
Having the foresight to plan ahead. I’m not one of those people that loves to go to the gym just to go to the gym. I need a reason, a purpose, so I find things (and people) to keep me motivated.
