4250 Pepsi Dr.
CrossFit has gained popularity as an effective means of getting into shape. It involves intense workouts consisting of mixed exercises (cardio, sprints, agility drills, weights, etc.). The workouts are called “WOD’s”—Workout of the Day—and change on a daily basis to keep your body guessing.
CrossFit ATR in Kearny Mesa is a great place to join if you want to get into CrossFit this year. The ATR (“Athletic Training Redefined”) gym has plenty of space and equipment, and is described as more of a community than a gym. The community of members and instructors can help keep you on track to your goals. CrossFit ATR also holds events and informational seminars.
NXPT Fitness Studio
8148 Ronson Rd.
Fitness boot camps can also provide quick results. These are similar to CrossFit as they involve a mix of cardio and strength exercises. However, they tend to focus more on calisthenics and bodyweight exercises.
Boot camp routines are conducted in a large group (like boot camp!), with an instructor leading the group. This group dynamic can help people feel more comfortable and stay consistent during the workout. If you’re interested in boot camps, NXPT Fitness Studio has been voted the #1 Boot Camp in San Diego for several years in a row now.

8623 Spectrum Center Blvd.
This is a martial arts gym that specializes in boxing and Muay Thai training. They also teach kickboxing, jujitsu, and MMA.

The Art of 8 gym also has multiple heavy bags, a full sized boxing ring, and tons of fitness equipment as well.

Just like your body, your car needs regular attention and maintenance for it to perform properly. It’s not enough to have your car checked only when something is wrong with it—scheduling regular maintenance checkups can prevent breakdowns and will help your car run more efficiently in the long run. Visit us at Convoy Auto Repair in Kearny Mesa before or after your gym session and schedule your regular complete car check ups with us.
