According to the Tampa Bay Times, Truly Fit Studio was created on a whim backed by an immense amount of self-motivation and community support. Owner M. Chris Gonzalez—a fitness trainer with more than 10 years of experience—partnered with his longtime colleague Shawn Becklund hoping to found a gym where the instructors could fully commit to the individual needs and goals of every client. Weight machines, dumbbells, heavy bags, treadmills, and spinning cycles fill the space for visitors seeking a personal workout, although the instructors also lead group fitness classes throughout the week. Exercises constantly vary and could include sprints, agility drills, kettle bells, plyometrics, and boxing. Focusing on everything from athletic conditioning and core work to yoga, these classes provide thorough workouts in a supportive group setting.
