ELEMENT - FOUND.
We are a state-of-the-art private training facility & wellness center established and created to focus on transformative health and fitness. As an expansion from our original location, Living Fit (est. 2009), The Compound has found its new home at 271 Grove Avenue in Verona. We offer private and small group training, as well as intimate group classes with a focus on our client's personal space & cleanliness.
Our carefully designed programs are structured with a purpose of implementing ample strength with proper stretching, rest and recovery. Focusing on strength through motion, a client’s posture (which is often neglected) is of utmost importance during any physical activity. Proper form allows for proper motor learning of movement management, refining your body’s kinetics to improve workouts and recovery.
