Alpha One Fitness came to be all because of a dream! Neal had always said that he would own his own gym. Murphy reached out to Neal wanting to buy-in to a franchise and wanted him to run it. As they got closer to pulling a trigger with a franchise COVID-19 happened. One-night Neal had an uplifting and spiritual dream that confirmed that it was now time to change the way fitness was done in Columbia. The next morning a simple text to Murphy, “We should start our own!” and a response of “Let’s do it!” is all it took. From that moment the experience, ideas and concepts from 10+ years in the industry started to become a reality.
Alpha One Fitness is about being comfortable, at peace, and confident in who you are. Alpha One Fitness is about not needing to prove yourself to anyone. You’re not attached to any outcome and you look at what values that can be offered. You allow yourself to be open and honest to yourself and others. You convey powerful confidence in your own skin, and you value your time to ensure your worth. You’re passionate about your spiritual, mental, and physical. You embrace your failures to develop strength with confidence. You LEAD THE PACK!
