RB Fitness Together has helped me tremendously!
After I retired, I decided I needed to focus on my overall health - something that had taken a back seat to my work. This involved changing my daily habits for eating and adding effective exercising into my life. I have never been a gym rat driven to exercise with abandon every day. Being somewhat of an introvert, I dislike open gyms and exercise parlors. I got a full medical evaluation focusing on healthy aging and received a plan to begin a guided exercise program as well as a nutrition program.
I discovered Rancho Bernardo Fitness Together in 2007. I was looking for a one-on-one training environment that would help me with my personal fitness and health goals and also teach me exercises and techniques that I could do at home on my own.
I found that Fitness Together tailors each workout session to your personal situation. After an initial assessment, they put together an exercise plan to address my needs. I initially suffered from Osteopenia (lower than normal bone density), a higher than desired BMI (more fat than muscle), and low energy. Each week my training plan included weight bearing exercises, cardio, and strengthening of different muscle groups at each session.
I am now in my 70s and have been working with Fitness Together for over 10 years. I am in excellent health, my weight has been stable for a number of years dropping 30+ pounds from when I retired. My body fat has dropped significantly and my muscle mass has increased. Physically I feel very good, and mentally I feel great. I actually look forward to my workout sessions.
As with life in general, the people make the difference. You can quickly tell that the owner cares about his customers. The trainers are all well educated and trained, and really enjoy working with their clients. Some of them are also going to school to become Physical Therapists, or are already practicing Physical Therapists. That is of particular interest for older folk who need help with exercises that will improve their particular conditions and assist with rehabilitation after injuries. I have worked with all of the trainers at one time or another and have been happy with every one. Kudos to Owner Charlie Watson, Sean Hickey, Carmelita Owens, Andrea Sun, Chris Bochen, and also to Diego Velasquez who got me started in the program.
I highly recommend Fitness Together for a supportive and effective training environment. I would also encourage prospective clients to look at the Trainers’ biographies and contact Charlie for a consultation.
