Our Strategy on Culture

At X3 Sports we believe that our people create our culture and we are proud to maintain a positive, supportive, and healthy work environment. 

Our organization prioritizes our three core values in everything that we do to achieve a greater caliber of success and work satisfaction. These core values are:

At each of our five X3 Sports locations, our team members hold each other accountable and encourage each other daily to represent and embody these three core values. We believe this is what sets us apart from other gyms or companies to work for.

Our People Make Our Culture

There’s no better way to hear about what this award means to X3 Sports than to hear it directly from the Warriors who create our culture. First, let’s hear from the big guy; our President and CEO, Mike Littrel:

“Winning this award is representative of the X3 team and culture. We started out with the idea to help people change their lives through fitness and along the way this amazing place called X3 has blossomed into more than just 5 locations, but into an opportunity for amazing and passionate professionals to change their lives and their families.  I have seen the people that make up the team at X3 grow so much personally, professionally, economically, socially, and spiritually over the years, that I am continuously inspired and motivated by the individuals around me that are TEAM X3!” 

Mike founded X3 Sports in 2007 with Tony Tucci and you can frequently find both of them at the club working out alongside our members or supporting our staff. Our leadership team at X3 Sports stays involved in the ins and outs of club operations to make sure each team member has the tools they need to succeed.

Donovan is a Membership Coach at X3 Sports and he couldn’t agree more, “X3 Sports is a one-of-a-kind company. We’re hands-on with all of our members and we are goal-oriented. I truly believe there’s nobody out there in Atlanta that’s like X3 Sports.” 

X3 Sports is a Tight-Knit Team

X3 Sports sets itself apart from other organizations because our staff is also close and tight-knit, in and outside of work. There is a reason we say #X3Family; we support each other like true family members and we spend time together outside of our shifts at Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competitions, fights, races, restaurants, and other activities. 

Hear it from Jack, a martial arts fanatic and Membership Coach at X3 Sports Inman Park, “We have the best front desk people and a great all-around team. It’s a great environment to work in. I just love coming in every day and interacting with like-minded and positive people. I’ve made great relationships with everybody I work with, we don’t just see each other here, we hang out outside of work, too. I also love that I’ve been able to excel in each position that I’ve had while moving up the ladder.” 

Jack started as a Front Desk Coordinator at X3 Sports West Midtown and has worked his way up in the ranks through his pure dedication and effort. He believes X3 Sports empowers him to reach new heights while having fun along the way. He has also become close friends with Janese, a Front Desk Coordinator at X3 Sports Inman Park.

Although Janese has only been working at X3 for a couple of months, she is impressed with our culture and she felt like she fit in right away, “The atmosphere and the teamwork are my favorite things about X3 Sports. Our community here is very strong.” 

Even though our team at X3 Sports is tight-knit, we are super welcoming to new staff members. If you are interested in joining our team, check out our Careers page to apply for any of our open positions.

Thank you to all of our Warriors who embody our core values every day. You are the reason we’re one of The Best and Brightest Companies To Work For!
