It’s that time of year again when we start thinking about the lifestyle changes we want to make as we enter a brand new year. For many, fitness plays some part in our goals for improving our lives and Chris Foote, owner of the Coronado Fitness Club gym, has a fresh perspective for positive growth.

Foote started the Coronado Fitness Club 11 years ago with the support of his family after moving to Coronado. Playing sports through college started his interest in health and physical training where he would help friends who were fellow athletes and went on to work at various gyms before starting his own. “I think I always knew that I wanted to do something in athletics, I loved being on a team,” Foote said. “I didn’t know I wanted to have a gym until I became a trainer and I just liked it. I got out of it for a few years but quickly discovered it was the only thing I was really passionate about for a career.” After working for larger gym corporations, Foote and his family, who had ties to Coronado and loved the city, decided to take a risk and open his own gym here. “I just saw an opportunity and it was a huge risk, and we just said, ‘why not?’”

When Ruth Nienberg celebrated her 94th birthday in August, her friends at Coronado Fitness Club (CFC) took notice.

The nonagenarian has been a fixture at the club for the past five years, ever since the former Curves gym, where she had been a member, closed. She visits CFC three times a week, usually on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. “If I have an appointment on Wednesday, then I go another day during the week,” she shared.

While Nienberg believes it’s important to “get up and about,” she professes to not being a big joiner of clubs, preferring to find a comfortable setting that allows her to work out at her own speed but still in a social setting.

Coronado Fitness Club (CFC) is introducing a new series of physical performance training for kids ages 10 through 15. P2 Training stands for “Peak Performance Training” explained CFC’s owner and head trainer Christopher Foote, and, just as the name implies, is designed to help kids function at their optimal best.

“P2 Training is perfect for kids, both boys and girls, who want to get more exercise into their lives and also for those who are already involved in sports but want to improve their strength, speed and agility,” Foote said.
