Life & Work with Rudy Mettia

Today we’d like to introduce you to Rudy Mettia.

Squatbox Gym in Santa Monica California was co-founded by world-renowned yoga teacher turned strength coach Rudy Mettia and partner Jennifer Ellis. Before his yoga career, Rudy Mettia’s first job in fitness was a strength and conditioning coach while serving in the Marines. Jennifer Ellis is a mother of two, a musician, and daughter in med school. Mettia and Ellis are both world-class strength and conditions coaches and have dedicated themselves to improving their client’s life with their motto, Your performance today will matter tomorrow.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
SquatBox Gyms biggest obstacle thus far has been Coved-19 and the shut down of the fitness industry. The cover crisis is second only to fitness misinformation dolled out by inexperienced trainers in big corporate gym chains. SBG is a school and we educate the misinformed.

What do you like and dislike about the city?
We love strength training, conditioning, barbells and bikes, dogs and deadlifts, presses and peaches, and most of all being a small positive part of our client’s lives. Dislikes: Negativity and drama.
