In an open space of hardwood floors and walls of mirrors, members work up a sweat on treadmills and elliptical trainers while focusing their attention on the personal TVs each machine is equipped with. This is one of the many perks at FitU's Modesto, Oakdale, and Riverbank locations, some of which also feature massage therapy that can soothe muscles after working out or running into the weight room’s clear plexiglass walls. The enthusiastic staff is always on hand to dole out pointers to those heaving free weights or pushing toward David-like physiques on the circuit weight-training machines. They also motivate patrons in a social setting with group fitness classes, including yoga, Pilates, Zumba, and spinning sessions. During one-on-one personal-training sessions, they zero in on a patron's abilities and goals to develop a challenging, yet manageable, fitness regimen. In addition to all the fitness-related amenities, the Modesto and Oakdale locations also feature cardio movie theaters and childcare facilities.

Certified massage practitioner Ian Edwards prefers to use firmer massage techniques, which are better at targeting pain and tension deep within muscles. At his spa, Five Point Palm Massage, he maneuvers between Swedish, deep-tissue, trigger point, and other modalities to customize each massage to the needs of the customer. He can also focus on specific areas of pain such as the back, neck and shoulders, or legs and feet.
Within the pampering confines of Diva's Beauty Studio, aesthetician Monica Hernandez makes it her mission to help clients feel their best. Her skincare treatments include intensive PCA Skin chemical peels, which exfoliate dead skin to liberate the glowing dewiness beneath. Her pumice-assisted microdermabrasion offers a gentler take on exfoliation, and her de-stress facial aims to gently replenish guests' energy and lift their moods. Other facials include the classic facial, the vitamin C facial, and the back facial, which clears dorsal pores and keeps wings clean. Monica also waxes, keeping faces and bodies free of unwanted hair.
