About Ann Arbor Athletic Club

The Ann Arbor Athletic Club powered by Ticker Fitness delivers expert coaching to prepare you for life’s most meaningful challenges. We are a health and fitness facility for those looking to get the most out of life.


We are a lifestyle and longevity-focused gym offering endurance, strength, and personalized classes and programming designed around you, your goals, your sport, and most importantly, your life outside the gym!   

Our focus is to lead you towards health for a lifetime. We are not selling 6-week fixes or an 8 week all-out shred.  What we bring to the table is so much more than that. Our method and programming allows you to show up at your best day in and day out for a lifetime, not just 8 or 12 weeks. 

Our programming is endurance-based but can unlock so much more than that. Through years of trial and error, we have created a program that can help you achieve any goal you have in mind, like losing fat, growing muscle, and gaining strength, all while creating a foundation of endurance, and aerobic capacity. This program allows all of our clients to be ready for life’s most meaningful challenges, no matter when they appear throughout the course of their lifespan.

Our classes and personal coaching are offered in a beautiful gym downtown Ann Arbor, Michigan with a fun atmosphere and a dynamic community.  There are no egos here.  Just like the program, our community builds you up, never breaking you down, challenging you to be your best along the way. Our expert team of coaches seek to keep you safe during your workout and keep you moving well for a lifetime.


In short, welcome to your forever gym, where we empower you with the knowledge for a lifetime of health so you don’t have to be a forever client.  But hey, if you want to stick around because Ann Arbor Athletic Club is so awesome, we are more than happy to have you.
