About Us


St. Louis Fitness Factory is owned by Tim McGowan, Sean McGowan, Seamus McGowan and Bill McGowan. We are a 15,000 square foot, full-service athletic club located in the heart of Washington Avenue’s Loft District. Since our opening in 2007, the Fitness Factory has been a leading workout destination in downtown St. Louis. For almost 10 years, we were located at 1314 Washington Avenue. Eventually, we outgrew the space and decided to make a change. In December of 2016, the Fitness Factory renovated a facility around the corner at 1220 St. Charles Street. This beautifully redesigned space offers two different levels with a large amount of natural lighting providing a bright, open and inviting feel to the structure. Originally a parking garage, Fitness Factory is designed to highlight the different elements used in the original construction, including ramps, concrete columns and exposed brickwork. Accented within our facility we have incorporated the most modern amenities that gyms offer today.


Our pledge is to provide you with the best tools to “Build a Better You”. We cater to each of our members individually. Whether you’re taking advantage of our wide variety of Amenities and Equipment, burning calories in our Group Exercise Classes, or getting workout and nutritional advice from one of our many Certified Personal Trainers, getting in shape will be the most exhilarating part of your day.


Our dedication to our members is what sets us apart from other fitness facilities. We hope to provide an atmosphere that empowers people within our community to create and maintain a healthy lifestyle that is both sustainable and gratifying. Our live-well philosophy along with our fitness, nutrition and training program are your tools for Building a Better You. Schedule a tour to see what all the hype is about!
