The press certainly likes California Family Fitness, granting the exercise venue such awards as a top spot on KCRA-3's 2012 A-List and Sacramento News and Review's Best of Sacramento 2012 Award. The press, however, isn't the top priority for the gym's staff; they believe that, to quote their about CFF page, “awards don't greet you at the door.” Instead, they depend upon their dedicated staffers at the front desk, chaperones at the Kidz Club play zone, and personal trainers to make families of clients feel at home. Certified personal trainers take aspiring exercisers of all ages through regimens that make use of the 16 available locations' ample workout machinery. Seasoned instructors, meanwhile, hold group fitness classes, free with a membership, fostering community as they incinerate calories during high-energy Zumba, step aerobics, Turbo Kick, and Hip Hop Hustle. Nine of the locations boast pools that host swim lessons taught by certified water-safety instructors.
While hitting the gym, parents can drop wee ones at childcare havens lined with playgrounds and age-appropriate investment manuals. After breaking a sweat on the exercise floor, clients can also shed excess body moisture in saunas and tanning beds.

Bob McCallister's teacher liked to compare a patient's symptom to the tip of a tree branch. Just as the branch can be traced back to its root, a symptom must be traced to its underlying cause—and only by treating the cause will symptoms disappear. Now a master of Oriental medicine, a certified medical qigong practitioner, and a licensed acupuncturist, Bob devotes himself to treating the root of patients’ ailments with classic Chinese medicine.
Before administering a single healing technique, Bob examines each patient and draws up a personalized treatment plan. This could involve inserting hair-thin acupuncture needles at specific points of the body to adjust the flow of energy. Bob also prescribes custom herbal formulas to maintain the body’s energetic balance, and he performs medical qigong therapy to combat chronic pain and side effects from chemotherapy.
