Body By Design
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? My gym offers personal training in a small group setting(5 max). What you are doing has nothing to do with what the others are doing in the group. Your workout is unique to you which I design based on your input and feedback and my assessment on the fastest way to reach your goals.....safely! It is a mix of free weights and machines(cardio and abs mixed in) in a non intimidating atmosphere where we have fun learning the basics if you are new or building on what you have done on your own with new challenges for intermediate trainees wanting to progress to the next level. It is a full 60 minutes. I have 30 years in the fitness industry and 24 years training full time and 20 years in the same location. If you like a super clean gym with THE BEST equipment and an action packed workout then you will LOVE this! Drive up and walk right in......plenty of parking.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? II could never afford a gym membership and saw an ad to work at a YMCA back in Connecticut(I was 26) and that began my fitness journey. I came out to California in 1989 and opened my gym in 1993. My business involves people skills, marketing, and knowledge of the body to be successful. Private Gyms come and go......20 years same location says a lot in itself I feel.
What do you love most about your job? I love helping my clients get in shape and push them to achieve what they thought was impossible....within their limits. I love seeing bodies changing.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer? On a yelp review a former client said "if I could give Mark Gontar an 11 I would, he is that good"..... and that was flattering to hear.
