We believe in less is more when it comes to taking care of yourself. We believe in empowering our clients and the public by providing information around personal "maintenance" practices.
Move often, eat properly, sleep adequately and reduce stress. Think Fitness Life is a reminder to do just that. Think, be mindful, keep your brain active by educating yourself, and be deliberate in what you do. Fitness, weave physical activity into your routine, target your muscles, get your heart and lungs working. Life, live it, be sure to live your best life.
Our mission is to empower you to take care of yourself. By providing clarity in a bloated field we hope we can assist you in finding the right solutions for your journey. Live Long and Prosper, Namaste and Live with Arête.
CERTIFIED PERSONAL TRAINERS
Hello! We are Matt Gluckman and Eric Menchi, we work as Certified Personal Trainers in high-end gyms. The clients and members we see are typically over-worked, under-slept, highly driven but lacking the time and mental bandwidth to take care of themselves properly. That's where our experience comes handy.
Our Team also consists of Maggie Nelson who is our Yoga Teacher as well as Alyse Mueller who is our Massage Therapist and Certified Personal Trainer as well. It takes a village.
Fitness means a lot, the way you think, the way you move, the way you live your life. We believe in building fitness into your life to be the best human you can be. What that means is when taking care of your body and mind to maximize your life becomes second nature like brushing your teeth or reaching for water when you're thirsty then you're on your way.
A lot of people want the quick fix but easy come easy go. We are about solutions for more permanent changes so you can live long and prosper. Rather be the warrior in the garden than the gardener in the war, meaning be proactive about your health and aging. Taking care of your body, your mind and live your best life.
