About Us

My Story

Archie Israel has been in the fitness industry since 1997. He has a passion for motivating his clients to push them beyond their capabilities and to help them reach new fitness goals in their lives. He is continuously educating himself on the latest research about the human body, and he enjoys teaching his clients about what he has learned and how it implies to their lives. 


He grew up in Silver Spring, Maryland, and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree from Frostburg State University. He has been an athlete all of his life. He started playing football, baseball, and basketball at a young age and ran track in junior high school and college. He has been weight training all of his life, and his lifestyle has allowed him to overcome knee, shoulder, and back injuries. He believes that exercise helps most medical conditions. This belief gives him the passion for motivating his clients every day and is why he places his heart and soul into his profession. 


He has worked in commercial and private gyms for 13 years, and a private studio for eight years. He does individual and online training.


Archie is a Christian, husband, father, and minister. He has a Masters in Divinity from Lancaster Bible College. He believes that “God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind” (2. Tim 1:7).
