Fitness had always been a central part of my life. I enjoy it not to look my best, but to FEEL my best! Before I had kids I spent hours on my bike, hiking in the park, in yoga classes, or at the gym.
I love Inspired Fitness! I have been a member for a year now and I must say that I have NEVER been this strong. To my surprise, I am now able to do push-ups, my least favorite exercise!
Between the age of 30-45 I worked out religiously, but then my life changed and I gained weight and lost muscle. I knew I needed to get back into the game…
While running and sports have been a part of my life since I was a kid, keeping a regular fitness regimen as an adult with kids is challenging.
For some people out there, making the decision to change their lifestyle and join a gym is hard enough. For others, just finding the right gym can seem impossible.
There are few places I would like to be at 6am and it turns out Inspired Fitness is one of them. I first visited the gym for a TRX class to complement my yoga practice.
I've been attending classes at Inspired Fitness off and on since it first moved to Sebastopol, and have always found it a grounding and stabilizing presence in my life.
I came to Inspired Fitness 6 months ago not knowing exactly what to expect since I had never been a member of a gym before and was delighted to discover a wonderfully supportive environment that pushes me…
I started at Inspired Fitness roughly 2 months ago, on the heels of a nagging back injury that limited my ability to exercise for close to 6 months. Within just a few weeks of classes, I had recovered…

After hanging up my soccer shoes having played for 15+ yrs. I took to the gym for my fitness fix. I missed the outdoors & wanted to take my fitness work back outside, so I took on the Muddy Buddy challenge. Good idea!
Joe & Mary
When I walked into Inspired Fitness back in January, I literally had not darkened the doorway of a gym in over a decade. I felt weak and completely out of shape, and I knew that the time had come for me to finally do something about it.
After 25 years of trying to stay fit exclusively by cycling, and having reached "a certain age," we realized we needed to expand our exercise horizons to improve our strength, over-all fitness, and range of motion. After trying another gym and some self-directed exercise at home, we found that the good people at Inspired Fitness and their wide variety of classes give us just what we need.
After I got my first hip replacement in 2004, My hip became infected two years later and I needed a replacement. I asked them to look at the other hip because it was giving me some troubles. Long story short, I ended up getting two hernias and I was at bed rest for 8 weeks with no hip cuff or rod but instead an antibiotic rod.
When I was young I was very active with sports, ultimate frisbee, hiking and sea kayaking. Then I went to grad school and got a job that had me in front of a computer a lot of the time. This "desk reality" combined with a full life as a dad and husband has led me to be more out of shape than I have ever been
Ian & Tara
My name is Fiona and I moved to Sebastopol about a year ago. Exercise has been a key part of my life for as long as I can remember. For over 2 years I wasn’t able to incorporate it due to illness. When I was ready to get back to it, I was intimidated—afraid of how hard it would be.
Amy & Lewis
My husband Ian and I found Inspired Fitness through our dear friend Heather Aiello, one of the amazing personal trainers who I'm so grateful married into my crazy family.
Heather started whipping me into shape twice a week until I got strong enough to do the classes.
Ash & Shep
Amy was a kick ass 5:30 a.m. boot camp chick when we first started dating three years ago. I know because she dragged me there a couple times and the 30 pound kettle bell swings nearly threw my back out of whack. This was down in Oakland.
Cheri & Nick
I've only been going to Inspired Fitness since the beginning of this year and already feel like its home. I have never gone to a gym that is so welcoming and motivating in my life. I look forward to going and each instructor brings something unique and awesome to every class.
All these years, I've never found an exercise routine that has clicked, nor have I been a fan of gyms and fitness classes. Since we joined Inspired Fitness last fall, I've built a daily habit and desire to be healthy and stronger.
I was initially drawn to Inspired Fitness because of their BeachBody affiliation and their Barlow location. I was familiar with several of the BeachBody classes like P90X, PiYo and CIZE, so I thought it would be fun to experience those classes in a group setting.
