206 South & Hinge Gym were created by owners Zach Filer and Adrianna “AJ” Kara.
Zach and AJ are passionate about serving both adults and teens in the less affluent communities of Seattle, particularly as they have witnessed all of the changes that the growth of Seattle has had on lower-income families and communities.
In January 2019, Zach and AJ moved their gym from SoDo to South Park. They did so to create a space where they could offer an affordable membership plan for adults, and a free programs for youth (ages 6-19).
World-class physical training and a healthy, fitness-focused community shouldn’t be a luxury for the lucky few. It should be accessible to anyone with the drive and commitment to improve themselves and go beyond what they thought they might be capable of, and 206 South makes that a reality in Seattle.
