About Us » Overview

In April 2002, PacWest Athletics was born.

That September our first training program launched with our first coached group run held in the heart of the Presidio of San Francisco. Since then, PacWest Athletics has grown to become the largest outdoor fitness organization in Northern California with training programs and members located throughout the Greater San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.

Our Vision

To create an organization dedicated to promoting and empowering people to live a healthy active lifestyle. Our mission is to develop quality fitness programs and support services and make them available in all major regions within the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.

Fitness Programs

Since our launch of our run program in September of 2002, PacWest has grown and expanded to include our cycle, triathlon and swim programs. Our launch of our triathlon program in January 2003 started with a 4-week boot camp-style program to build core strength. Everyone loved it. We quickly realized the importance and popularity of this type of workout for not only our multisport athletes but all of our members. Exactly one year after PacWest launched, we introduced our first boot camp program. Today, PacWest boosts both the largest and most popular boot camp program in the Bay Area.

Coaching Staff

PacWest has an impressive staff of coaches and team captains who successfully implement training programs throughout all four major regions of the Bay Area: San Francisco, East Bay, Marin County and South Bay. Our instructors and coaches are certified (USA Cycling, USA Track & Field, USA Triathlon, Personal Trainer, Strength & Conditioning, etc) and seasoned veterans in their respective disciplines.


We take pride in selecting only the very best in business partners to provide quality products and services to our members. Each relationship is mutually beneficial creating valued long term partnerships. Our partner network is located throughout the entire Bay Area and continues to grow and expand to better serve our member needs.

Community Outreach

Since 2003, PacWest has worked directly with over 40 charities and non-for-profit organizations assisting in fund raising efforts, helping promote their worthy causes and objectives, and in several cases act as the charity’s official training program in which participant raise funds while training for an endurance event (cycle, run, triathlon).
