It’s a fun and busy time at Coronado Fitness Club (CFC). A growing membership base and increased summer activity due to tourists and high schoolers have prompted CFC to amp up its class schedule. CFC’s class portfolio includes spin, boot camps, zumba, yoga, TRX and MyZone heart rate zone training.

CFC provides local and visiting high school students options that don’t require a gym membership. Girls Boot Camp and Strength and Speed for Athletes continue through the summer months with flexible rate options to adapt to students’ schedules. “Some kids come in for a couple of weeks, travel with family, then come back to finish the summer with us.,” says CFC owner, Chris Foote. “We want kids to have quality, flexible choices that motivate and safely train their growing bodies.”

High school athletes can track their progress throughout the summer starting with a state-of-the-art InBody scan at Kevin Bruno’s Strength and Speed for High School Athletes. As opposed to focusing on the number on a scale, the InBody scan teaches people what their weight really represents, providing a detailed breakdown of muscle, fat and water in the torso and each arm and leg. For any interested student, Bruno will start the summer showing kids their true body composition. From there, they will work together to set goals, ending the summer session with another scan.

Girls Boot Camp offers teenage girls of all ability levels the opportunity to work out with professional trainer, Carter Graves. Graves helps girls set and track attainable goals throughout the summer. She shows girls how to exercise effectively and celebrate their progress with a healthy mindset from beginning to end.

Personal trainer and yoga master Eva Craven leads Sunday morning stretch class for all fitness levels. She emphasizes that, although some yoga techniques are used, the class focuses on basic stretching--- “on what we’ve forgotten to give our bodies through the week. Stretching is an important and often neglected part of keeping that healthy lifestyle we all strive for,“ says Craven.

This 8 a.m. stretch class follows a newly added, high-energy 7 a.m. spin session. “Some members have already made both classes a part of their Sunday morning routine----finished in time to go to church! Others enjoy the relaxing properties of a good stretch, then go to coffee with friends.” The highlight of the session comes in the final 10 minutes when Craven transitions the stretching into a guided meditation complete with lavender, eucalyptus and rosemary scented towels. “The last part takes you to a different place, sets your Sunday right, and gets you ready for the week ahead.”

Almost doubling the number of weekly spin classes from five to nine, spin continues to grow in popularity. Foote attributes the dramatic increase in CFC spin attendance to the motivating and highly skilled trainers who lead these classes. “We have sought out some of the best experienced spin instructors in the San Diego area. Our current members are coming to these classes even more frequently, and word spreads through the community, which creates even more demand.”

“CFC continually adds and revises its schedule based on what members tell us they want,” says Foote. “We invite residents and visitors to stop by any time to check us out.” Class schedules, rates and membership information are at www.coronadofitnessclub.com.
