Entrepreneur, personal trainer, nutrition coach, and most importantly, husband and father, Dane Miklaus is the CEO/Founder of WORK, LLC, a boutique group fitness studio in Orange County, CA. Launched on a shoestring budget with only word of mouth marketing, WORK has been profitable since Day 1 due to exceptional studio design, revolutionary programming, and a relentless dedication to excellent customer service.
A former top 25 trainer in the Equinox Fitness clubs, Dane left the traditional gym world unsatisfied with how the corporate structure treated his clients. After exploring different studio concepts, Dane and his wife Kara opened WORK with the goal of making group fitness more personal. Their flagship location has landed on numerous Best Gym/Studio lists, received performance awards from Mindbody and ClassPass, and is set to be joined by two more studios launching in 2020.
Dane is an NSCA C.S.C.S, certified in TRX, Pre/Post Natal, Precision Nutrition Coach, and holds a Bachelor's degree in Applied Exercise Science from Azusa Pacific University.
