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.
"I needed a physical to update my life insurance policy. My physician contacted me with the results and he seemed somewhat surprised.T.R.
All my markers showed improved health — blood markers, hormone profiles, weight and body composition. He indicated I have actually increased
my vitality and youthfulness even though I am getting older. He indicated that he almost never sees this. This also saved me a lot of money on
my insurance premiums. I attribute this positive change to the good work and support I have received at Dogma the last few years. Thank you so
much for providing expert training and a supportive culture. I am a testament to your good work."
