Point Loma Sports Club is observing its 10th anniversary this year in Liberty Station continuing to build on the foundation laid by its late founder Greg Rubin.
“A health club should be about so much more than exercise,” said Rubin, who established the club at 2751 Roosevelt Road, in November 2012, as stated at plssportsclub.com. “It should be a place where people come to be energized and revitalized, an oasis to escape the chaos of the world around us and be uplifted both emotionally and spiritually.”
Gary’s daughter, Jessica Rubins, the club’s operations manager, recalls running on treadmills at age 4. She is carrying on the family fitness tradition.
“It’s more of a community atmosphere here, a lot of families, local Point Loma people,” she said adding, “We’re very big on providing an experience that’s more than just your physical body, (stressing) mental health and well being.”
Rubins added Point Loma Sports Club, located in a huge building with high ceilings and compartmentalized into several different rooms, offers a diverse menu of health and fitness options. “Whether you’re an elite athlete, or you’re just starting out, everyone can find their place here,” said Rubins adding the local club attracts members from all over because “they just love the vibe here. It’s not something that you can get somewhere else.”
Fitness options offered include spacious open-air facilities, group classes, personal training, showers, shampoo, and towel service, far infrared sauna, lockers, therapeutic bodywork, spinning, yoga, lifestyle coaching with functional diagnostic lab testing, aerial lessons, corporate wellness programs, sports therapy, and energy healing.
The club’s design, from the layout to its equipment and staff, is all about supporting the vision that people of all shapes, sizes, and levels of fitness ability can come to enhance their physical, spiritual, and emotional well-being.
“We are not in the fitness business serving people, we are in the people business serving fitness,” states the club’s website. “Everything here is top of the line, from our equipment to our classes, to our programs, to our staff. We approach our members with respect, intelligence, strength, humor, and energy. We treat people as we would a respected friend of the family.”
Another novel thing about Point Loma Sports Club is that you get inspirational quotes and words to live by along with your workout. Inspiration quotes are to be found everywhere around the gym including one in Rubin’s office that reads, “Live life as if everything is rigged in your favor.”
Rubins noted Point Loma Sports Club presently has about 20 employees and about 1,500 members and is open every day. Concerning the club’s mission, she said: “It’s really about making sure everyone here is getting what they need. It’s not a big corporate business. We have the ability to get to know all our members on a first-name business and our staff really enjoys getting to know everyone that comes in.”
Asked what makes Point Loma Sports Club special, Rubins replied:
“Everyone is welcome here and no matter what you’re looking for in fitness, health, or anything – you can find it here.”
