They take advantage of San Diego’s beauty and bring together a community of some kick a** people. I am a female in my mid 20’s and have been with Gut Check for 2 years. I’ve EXCEEDED my personal fitness goals and have the best time doing it! I LOVE Gut Check Fitness.

I have been working out with Gut Check Fitness for over 5 years now, and after trying numerous other gyms and boot camps, I can say this is by far the best in the business! Joe and Nicole are amazing at pushing each person beyond their limits, believing in us when we don’t believe in ourselves. The work outs are tough, will make you sore and tired, but you will get in amazing shape and have fun doing it! The Gut Check team is such a positive and supportive group that really knows how to work AND play hard at the same time.

Joe and Nicole have created a welcoming and motivational culture that is addictive to anyone that has the desire to improve their health. No matter your current fitness level, all you have to do is keep showing up and putting in your best effort. Do this and you’ll not only enjoy the camaraderie and support of the group workouts but you’ll also see the magic happen as your fitness level continually improves! I personally look forward to each class, being challenged and working out with friends that motivate me to push myself. Gut Check Fitness got me out of my comfort zone and into the best shape of my life.

Prior to coming to Gut Check Fitness, I had never run more than a mile at one given time. Running and working out was very foreign to me, especially competing at these things. Additionally, I was very much a city boy, having never spent time in the mountains or canyons ever. As soon as I started Gut Check, I was pushed to limits I thought I could never be pushed. I did things that I did not know I even could do, including working out through the night in many dark canyons. Joe and Nicole not only inspired me, but challenged me every workout to lay it all out there. To not think….just do. After 11 years under their care and leadership, I have competed at a very high level in over 100 races, with many medals to show for. There is absolutely no way I could achieve the things that I have without the Gut Check family, and most notably Joe and Nicole. The camaraderie that exists in each class makes the workouts exciting and fun. Through the years, because of Gut Check, I have made lasting life-long friendships with all of the members. I cannot express in words the drive that Gut Check has igniting in me. Without a doubt, Gut Check has changed my life and made me see a different, stronger, and more confident me.
