In 2006, Rod and Michelle Connolly created Dogma Athletica to bring a more comprehensive and cerebral approach to training and wellness. Since then, Dogma has established itself as one of the world's premier high-altitude training centers.

Dogma Athletica translates to "A belief in the athletic process."   To promote this belief within the community, Dogma adopted the motto, "Live It." Members and guests at Dogma can count on engaging programs with benefits that enhance life long after the session or class is over.

Dogma Athletica is a full training center with an athletic-movement-designed, cutting edge gym.  You will find Colorado's largest Compu-Trainer cycling studio, diagnostic and metabolic testing equipment, a full fleet of Woodway treadmills, including a Super-Mill for gait analyses, and the Vail Valley's top-rated yoga studio.  What really distinguishes Dogma Athletica from other centers, though, is the quality of the trainers and coaches.   Dogma has cycling and endurance coaches, as well as elite trainers who are the best in their fields and live what they coach every day.  

Dogma Athletica is the perfect adjunct to any of Live It Cycling's programs in the Vail Valley.  The Dogma facility offers strength and movement assessments, bike fits and metabolic testing to make for the most complete coaching experience possible.

  • My sincere thanks to everyone at Dogma for helping me become myself again. The inspiration, guidance and support to lose 40 lbs. in the 2 month challenge and helping me to bring my triglycerides from 260 down to 70 with no drugs. What I like the most though is feeling 20 years younger and leading a fuller life. Dogma is like having a group of friends who support you everyday you come in. Thanks Dogma!
