    Hello, my name is Vincent Ripol. I was born in Texas, grew up in Tucson, graduated from the University of Arizona, and headed west to San Diego, where I became an ACE-Certified Personal Trainer. Since the late 90s, I have lived and trained in many wonderful neighborhoods including Bankers Hill, Ocean Beach, and Normal Heights. In 2003, I settled in “Mission Hillcrest”, and I've been living, training, bicycling, and walking in 92103 ever since. I joined the Fitness Together family in 2015. Outside of the gym, you may see this avid musicologist at the symphony, a rock festival, or browsing the used record stores. Indoors, I'm likely to be hanging out wherever a good jukebox can be found, and March Madness is priority viewing every year. As a teenager, I was introduced to weightlifting and cardiovascular exercise, both of which shaped my dedication to the healthy lifestyle I continue to enjoy in my fifth decade on the planet. It’s never too early or too late to get in better shape, and I can help you make desired improvements at any age. Achieving and maintaining the perfect fit-ness for each individual is the ultimate goal of every session.

here’s how it works

progress checks

A comprehensive assessment every 6 weeks so we can celebrate your progress and set new goals.


  • I have been working out at FT for a couple of years and it has made a dramatic difference in my health. I no longer need hip surgery and I am able to dance and hike again.

  • Friendly people who care about helping you achieve your goals. FT helped me prepare to hike the Appalachian Trail at age 65. If you have the will, FT will show you the way.

  • The high quality training and nutrition advice at Fitness Together has helped me reach my fitness goals. I’ve lost 20 pounds and have a BMI of 22.8!

  • I started working out after having breast cancer and heading to osteoporosis. My primary goal with FT was to increase bone density. I now have normal bone density.
