Myles Magnuson, Principal
Myles's personal training career began in 2001 after receiving his Bachelor of Science Degree from Western Washington University. Immediately following graduation he began his personal training career at a high end health club in Bellevue, Washington.
After establishing a devoted client base, Myles opened his own business, Arete Athletics in 2006. He holds advanced certifications through the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA).
Myles maintains a full schedule of personal training clients ranging in age from 15-88 with varying levels of exercise experience. He continues his fitness education and stays on top of trends and new practices by participating in educational events and seminars. Integrating this information into his personal routine allows him to create fun and effective workouts for all of his clientele. He is also devoted to educating the community on positive health and exercise practices.
On the lighter side, Myles can be found spending his free time on his sailboat with his wife and dog. Every summer he vacations in San Juan and Gulf Islands, catching crab, and enjoying a cocktail or two. His ideal day would be waking up when he is rested, fly fishing, reliving his collegiate lacrosse career, skiing down a mountain and then sailing on the Puget Sound.
