Do I have to be in good shape to join?

What makes you gym different from the big chain gyms?
Fit For Life is owned and operated by a Certified Fitness Trainer with 18 years experience. Most box gyms are owned and operated by people who have sales skills but lack fitness knowledge. At Fit For Life you are treated with care and not treated as just another number.
Is you gym expensive?
At Fit For Life we offer different memberships that can fit most peoples budget. Our mission is to get you in the best shape possible while making it affordable enough to continue for years to come.
Do you have to sign up for a long term membership?
Absolutely not. You have lots of options with Fit For Life. In fact the longest contract that we offer is one year. We want you to be happy from year to year with us. We have had people do our programs for over 10 years, because they want to rather than being locked in to a 3 year deal. Any gym that offers you longer than one year is sure that they will not make you happy. They feel the only way to get all the money out of you that they can is to lock you up for a long time. This is a dirty little secret used by all of the big gyms.
Do you offer locker rooms and showers?
Yes. Our locker rooms are spa like. We not only have showers for members, we fully stock them with body wash, shampoo, conditoners, gel, hair spray, hair dryers, curling irons and shower towels. We realize that you might need to go from your workout to some place important. We want to make it easy so that you do not have to lug all this stuff around.
Are your Trainers Certified Fitness Instructors?
Yes. All of the trainers that take you through your workouts carry exercise science degrees or they carry a nationally recognized certification. This is very important when deciding to let someone guide you through exercise. I have seen all sorts of people claim to be boot camp instructors over the past few years that have no business instructing people on proper exercise. This is how people get injured. Fit For Life gym has the Highest standards in educated trainers in Bakersfield.
Will I see results if I join your gym?
We have coached thousands to healthy fitness and body fat goals. Every membership that we offer is designed with results in mind. Every workout written for you personally or written for a group session is designed to get you stronger, leaner and help you move better. We offer monthly body fat assessments to all of our members. We call this our on track session. Members sit down with our certified nutrition coach and test bodyfat. The bodyfat test shows a road map of which direction to take in diet or exercise. This is a unique service that we have had a lot of success with.
O.K. I am ready to try Fit For Life Gym. What are my options?
Getting started with us is easy. We offer a 3 day trial. This trial enables you to try out our Team Training classes at any given time that might work for your schedule long term. We want you to be successful in your health and fitness goals and it all starts with being consistent. By the 3rd visit, we sit down and figure out which membership will get you to your goals the fastest.
Do you offer personal training?
Yes. We offer One on One sessions. We also offer semi private sessions (2 to 5 people in a group). All of our personal training sessions are one hour in length. We suggest One on One training if it fits in your budget and you feel that the extra attention to you and you only will be the best option. If you like working out in a small group, we suggest semi private sessions. These one hour workouts are very effective. The cost for semi sessions are half of what a one on one session would cost. Included with our personal training is unlimited classes. If you are interested in any form of personal training, please call the gym so that we can book a free session that fits your schedule.
