Sam and Danny met at the University of Texas at San Antonio back in 2011 while studying Kinesiology Exercise Science. Both were experienced full time personal trainers during this time. Their passion for fitness was the reason they hit it off as friends.


Sam was a successful personal trainer for a corporate gym, while Danny operated a private gym as an independent trainer. They were both competitive by nature, and they frequently shared ideas about what the fitness industry needed. As they grew closer each semester they began discussing the idea of opening a fitness facility that would raise the standard above all.


Two things they wanted to focus on were being a highly personable gym and making sure that every personal trainer at ALIO would be educated and experienced. In February of 2017, ALIO Fitness Club became that reality they both dreamed about during college. Today ALIO is exactly what they envisioned.
