As promised, we have started to review some gyms in the area. I visited Speedie’s Gym in Murrieta to check out the Fit 4 Life training classes held on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings. I love a tough workout, where I am left with wobbly legs and a shirt reeking of sweat and I was curious to see what I would get with Fit 4 Life.
The gym itself, is clean and tidy. It is located at 24699 Jefferson Ave., #D, Murrieta, CA on Jefferson & Corning. Parking was plentiful and the place was very easy to find. The Fit 4 Life group train out at the back of the gym, which I loved! I love being outside during a workout.
The instructor, Brandon Walker, was friendly and appeared to have a good rapport with the other ladies who were taking the class. After a warm up, Brandon divided the group up based on fitness levels. He then started to put us through our paces. Being in a group with similar fitness levels, meant that you were being pushed, without feeling like you were at the bottom of the class!!!
We did a number of conditioning exercises that got my heart rate up very quickly, which involved tire dragging, tire flipping and side shuffles. We then transitioned over to the ab work area, where Brandon’s assistant, put us through some rigorous exercises. My core is by far my strongest muscle group, but I was feeling the BURN! We then went back outside ( yay!) to do some squats and sprints ( no breaks….yikes). Those things hurt, but boy, do they work you good. We finished up with a few additional core exercises and a wonderful cool down and stretch.
I would definitely recommend the Fit 4 Life training classes. You will get a great workout that will cater to your fitness level. Classes are reasonable at $15 hour. Brandon is a Physique Fitness competitor and therefore also has a lot of good advice on weight loss diets and food choices. You can reach Brandon on Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday mornings at 951-315-3487.
