David Barton

Ask anyone in sneakers or a sports bra and they will tell you David Barton is fitness personified. He is a disruptor and visionary within the gym industry. David's epic vision involves a collaboration of preeminent talent in design, lighting, technology and exercise science to create the ultimate gym environment and most advanced workout.

Deemed by The New York Times as "the man who made working out cool," David is widely respected as the person who first breathed life, sexiness and celebration into fitness. He took the one-dimensional gym business, flipped it on its head, and created a body altering, heart-racing, music-thumping dynamic that defined a new class of health gym and personal lifestyle.

Prior to TMPL, Barton founded his namesake DavidBartonGym, distinguished across the country for its intense personal training, cutting-edge design, charged environment and provocative advertising with locations in New York, Miami, Chicago, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Seattle.

Barton holds a Bachelor of Science in human development from Cornell University. He has been featured in numerous publications, including VOGUE, Vanity Fair, Newsweek, Town & Country, The New Yorker and Interior Design and has appeared on The Today Show, CNN, Bloomberg TV, VH1 and MTV, among others.
