Fitness Together is not your typical gym. Offering a customized fitness journey that is tailored to each individual, Fitness Together pairs you with a trainer in a private, personal training studio. You may have seen the name before; this franchise operates in many cities across the country and San Diego is lucky to be one of them.

We caught up with Blake and Gwen Beckom who own and operate Fitness Together Mission Hills on Goldfinch Street. They joined Edible San Diego’s Garden Partner membership because “Edible clientele that are mindful of their health and wellness, make for a good combination with our mission.” This husband and wife duo have helped countless people achieve their weight loss and fitness goals. 

The motivation for starting their studio, Blake explained, was to “offer a concierge approach to fitness programming and nutrition in private training suites in which clients work one-on-one with some of the highest accredited, ethical and experienced professional fitness trainers in the industry. We exist to offer top-notch fitness and nutrition programming; clients develop the motivation and accountability they want for long-term wellness. Our training environment is safe, secure, clean, and non-threatening so that we can focus on people’s fitness together.”

We were curious to learn how their studio withstood the effects of Covid-19, as gyms were hit hard. Blake explained, “we’ve always had safety as our utmost priority. With the pandemic we assessed our facility, amping up sanitary practices even higher than our previously high standards. We create multiple hand sanitizer locations for clients and require masks to enter and exit the facility clients may remove masks during their workout, so we changed our scheduling system to create more time between training sessions for thorough cleaning of the training suite and all touch-points studio-wide in between sessions. All trainers wear facial coverings during all sessions. We set aside equipment used in-session to ensure extra cleaning on those items. Given that we train in private suites one-on-one, we’ve created the safest place to work out you could hope for.”

You may be wondering, what professional fitness trainers like to eat? “Our favorites are organic foods. For protein, we love wild-caught salmon, chicken, grass-fed beef, or bison. Plus tons of vegetables, usually grilled or roasted.”
