We had the good fortune of connecting with Andrew Gubany and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Andrew, what inspires you?
I am inspired by people breaking thru their own barriers. As a society we all have endured things we feel others do not understand. Truth is, everyone is going thru something and while the struggles might not be the same, most people share a common goal of health, wellness and the love of fitness. Seeing people from different journeys come together to focus on themself has got to be one of the most positive atmospheres. To encourage others and see daily changes in a persons life is amazing! It fuels my passion to inspire others the same way I am inspired.

What should our readers know about your business?

Wow, ok so let’s go deep. The American dream of owning  a business went out the window with covid. Being a gym owner has had challenges that have been painful life lessons both financially and emotionally. But, surviving it has been one of the most rewarding accomplishments to date. COVID somehow empowered us all. We have had to get very innovative this past year. Constant focus on meeting the needs of society and drill down on the ever changing needs of our guests and members. Being part of the wellness industry we take great pride in being a facility that is a safe space. We have built and implemented all the protocols to ensure peace of mind during your workout.
We have grown as a studio because we have late we have learned to be more grateful for the faces we see each day Those stepping our of their homes and into Purple Pedal are trusting me with their safety and we take that seriously.
I have lost a lot of sleep thinking of up the next best idea or solution to keep us open, safe and thriving. It’s as overwhelming as it is empowering to be trusted. However, the personal victory in being able to follow thru with those  promises and deliver the quality people still deserve from a fitness studio is amazing! Pedal is a brand that is unlike any others. Our members are at home in our studio. We have all ages from kids to seniors coming out to ride and party on a bike in our newly remodeled Fitness Theatre with all the lasers and lights to give you that night club feel. We have also added a clean air technology that delivers clean fresh air 24/7, brand new state of the art stages bikes and a whole room sanitization system after each class.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Downtown Fullerton is a hotspot for sure! We are located in the heart of downtown on Wilshire where all the restaurants and bars are outdoors with a dynamic outdoor vibe that gives you all the feels.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Where would anyone of us be without love? I have the privilege of feeling love from so many people throughout my day but non like the love from my Partner, Isaac and my children Dianna and Owen and all the support we have from my mom Irma. I’m incredibly thankful for a real life dream team at Pedal. We are a family of individuals from all walks of life with the commitment to community, health, excellence and fun!
