Richard and Tiffany Santana have shared their lives and their passions with one another throughout their thirteen years of marriage. Though their mutual love of fitness eventually converged, it started differently for both of them. For Richard it began when he started coaching baseball. Tiffany caught the fitness bug on her high school powerlifting team. Together, they've created a haven for fitness enthusiasts with a variety of services includingboot camp.
Since its 1965 founding in Venice Beach, California, Gold's Gym has dotted the globe with more than 600 locations where professional athletes and exercise newbies gather under the umbrella of personal strength. Nearly 3.5 million Gold's members chart and aim for their fitness peaks, perspiring beneath the gaze of certified personal trainers or pedaling beside peers at cycling sessions. In a diverse lineup of group classes, patrons strengthen cores with Pilates, finger-paint pictures of ninjas in martial arts, and amp up heart rates along to the pulsating soundtracks of Les Mills routines. Many Gold's Gym locations offer cardio machines with individual iPod docks and televisions that help keep patrons motivated.
For the experienced athlete, it's no problem to just walk into a gym and put together a day's workout. For someone still learning the ropes, a little support can go a long way. This is what you get at Foundation Fitness. Trainers start with an meet-n-greet to help you articulate your fitness goals and design workouts to accomplish them. From there, clients can choose to continue 1-on-1 training, transition to small-group training, or attend boot camp classes that include complimentary nutritional plans. FF's staff isn't intent on just cutting you loose after a workout, either: you can elect to stick around for a massage-therapy session that helps stretch and relax newly worked out muscles.
