Meet Kevin Atkinson of Sweat 60

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kevin Atkinson.

Sweat 60 was opened in Santa Monica in January 2018 by Kevin. He is a former Division 1 athlete and has always had a love for fitness. After moving to LA in 2010 and working for a couple failed tech-startups he decided it was finally time to pursue fitness as a career.

He started personal and group training at Equinox and some private gyms around LA. He quickly became one of the top trainers on the Westside. He quickly grew tired of the same old cookie cutter classes, no one paying attention to form, rude instructors, lack of community, and no measurable way to track improvement.

With all of this mind and clear vision, he opened up Sweat 60.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
For the most part, the journey has been smooth, of course, we had to deal with some of the normal obstacles. The build-out took about a month longer than anticipated. Luckily most of my clients were understanding and were OK with working out in a construction zone.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
Sweat 60 is an independently owned training club specializing in group fitness classes, semi-private training and personal transformation.

We strive to empower members to achieve their highest level of sustainable fitness by providing three key elements: High-level coaching, an inclusive member experience, and a supportive community

I think our hands-on approach to each individual person really sets us apart. With every client, we help them develop a clear routine based on their goals, hold them accountable, provide a clear plan to healthier eating and welcome them into our awesome community.

What were you like growing up?
I think people would say I was outgoing, fun, athletic and really into sports, especially soccer. I was also known for throwing the best parties in high school so getting people to come to the gym and have a good time comes naturally.


  • Group Training is $195 month
  • Semi-Private Training ranges between $595-$795 per month
  • Personal Transformation starts at $135/hr
