Health and fitness is a popular activity with San Ramon residents. There are more than 10 fitness clubs in the city that range from full service fitness, yoga, and specialized programs such as the Bar Method.
Most of the clubs offer programs that fit into their clients’ lifestyle. Exercise machines, classes, free swimming, and pick-up games are available. Classes are offered for children, teens, adults and seniors.
For fitness buffs or people looking to get into a workout schedule they can sign up with a personal trainer who will put them on an exercise, and often a nutritional, regimen. Personal trainers are professionals who specialize in nutrition, weight loss, muscle building, and a variety of specialized recreational fields.
Other specialists that are affiliated with gyms and fitness centers are massage therapists and sports instructors. For those who have overdone their workout or just have sore muscles, a sports massage is ideal in rubbing out the aches and pains. People looking to sharpen their tennis game can get customized clinics from professional tennis coaches.
The gyms and clubs vary in size and ambience. Large fitness clubs are convenient for people who enjoy meeting new potential friends. Often these clubs organize off-site social events, have on-site snack bars or conference rooms and generally price their memberships to be more inexpensive. Mid-size gym facilities are normally more informal without social activities. The smaller boutique fitness clubs are intimate clubs that are geared to offer members privacy and customized services in small groups.
Keeping fit is a key part of staying healthy physically and mentally. For some people a combination of using fitness clubs and gyms and an outdoor sport gives their workout routine the variety to keep them engaged. It is hard sometimes to keep a very rigorous workout schedule but being consistent and working it into a weekly routine can make it a lot easier to take time for yourself and feel great.
