AARMY brings this unique blend of training excellence, usually only reserved for pro sports teams or elite academies, to everyday individuals to unlock their inner athlete. Akman and Davis have coached leading figures in sports, fashion, film, music, and art including Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Jake Gyllenhaal, David Beckham, Maria Sharapova, and Karlie Kloss just to name a few. Later this fall, AARMY will also launch an exclusive state of the art cycling bike along with a Premium Subscription offering.
