The Fit Lifestyle

Members Find More Than Just a Gym at Fit Solana Beach

Fit is a unique lifestyle brand that offers members much more than just a gym. “Fit Solana Beach is a warm and welcoming environment where people feel motivated to work on themselves and their health and wellness goals. Fit is a community and a family – everyone is welcome to join,” stated Jenna Jones, manager at Fit Solana Beach. The club holds regular social events, offers healthy grab-and-go meals at the onsite café, and allows members to achieve their zen in the tranquility of a beachside locale.

As an anchor in the Solana Beach community, Fit offers personal and small group training personalized to meet each member’s individual goals. “We have a wide variety of group fitness classes, from yoga and Pilates, to strength training, dance, indoor cycling, boxing, and barre. In addition, we have state-of-the art workout equipment and locker rooms with showers, saunas, and complementary towel service,” revealed Jones. The 2,000-square-foot indoor turf training area, beach access, and beach workout classes add to the unique offerings of Fit Solana Beach.


“They do their best to keep things clean, the staff is always polite and helpful, but one thing that helps this gym standout is their personal trainers. I feel so lucky to have trainer Jessica Scherr – she helped me transform myself from a lazy couch potato to be able to run my first marathon. When I first started training with Jessica, I couldn’t even do three pull ups; I can now do 13. Every training day she comes in with a custom handwritten plan for the day, so my body is constantly guessing what’s next. She also gives me exercise homework so I’m seeing improvement every week. Thanks to the strength and confidence Jessica has given me I will be doing my first Ironman in the spring of 2020. And hopefully, qualify for Boston in the 2020 marathon season. If you’re looking to change your life for the better, I highly recommend you join Fit and hire Jessica Scherr to help you on your journey.” – Joe A.

“This gym is so beautiful and it’s located right next to the ocean! I love it! Alec was very helpful when it came to getting information about the gym and helping me sign up. He also listened to my needs and picked out the best personal trainer for me. I have been training with Scott for the past two months and have noticed such a difference. He makes working out fun and knows when to push me. The staff is friendly and the gym is very clean and they always have a good playlist going. Overall, it’s the best gym in San Diego!” – Danielle S.

“Great gym with all of the equipment you need. They have a nice indoor turf area and an outside area to work out with a fresh breeze. Nice cooling eucalyptus towels waiting for you in mini fridges after a workout. Cozy sauna and clean bathrooms to get prepared for work or wherever you’re off to next. If you want to train, especially for marathons and such, Murray is a great trainer! Not only have I learned to endure runs farther than I ever thought I could but I’m truly enjoying it, craving it. Murray is also super knowledgeable and has helped me understand how every little exercise works and what it can help you achieve. Overall, great gym and staff for a reasonable price. Thank you!” – Alice L.

Individualized service is a great source of pride for the Fit team. Just as each member comes in with a different goal, each trainer at Fit has their own area of expertise. “Our trainers come from a wide variety of backgrounds with specialties ranging from boxing, mobility, sports psychology, sports performance, nutrition, and pre and postnatal, as well as Ironman, marathon, triathlon, and military training,” related Jones. While some members may be looking to train for their first race, others may be searching for an overall fitness plan to become healthier and more active. The Fit team will listen to each member and match them to the right personal trainer that can help them meet their individual goals.

Staying true to their family-friendly philosophy, Fit offers childcare that is just as unique as the health club itself. “With Fit’s ‘Playcare’ method, your child is encouraged to get active through play while you do the same. You can have peace of mind that your child is in good hands with our qualified care professionals,” stated Jones. Members can also rest assured that their four-legged family members are well cared for, as Fit provides outdoor dog kennels as a convenient perk.
