Originally hailing from Long Island, Frank Calandrino was introduced to fitness culture while living in its epicenter: Southern California. Between 1990 and 2000, Frank observed and experienced Southern California’s cultural belief that fitness extends beyond gym visits and obsessive weight loss. “On the East Coast, fitness is more cyclical, such as wanting to get in shape for the Summer” Frank observes, “whereas on the West Coast, it’s more lifestyle-driven.”

When he opened up Level 1 in 2007, Frank endeavored to bring some of the SoCal vibe to Philadelphia. Instead of catering to a select group of gym rats and bodybuilders, Level 1 works one-on-one with a diverse range of clients to understand where fitness fits in their lifestyle. This philosophy is reflected in both the gym’s abundant amenities and their approach to personal training. Frank and his trainers help clients understand how exercise can be incorporated into a wider, holistic understanding of lifestyle fitness that also includes nutrition and mental wellness.
