Are You Ready to Get Serious About Fitness?

One of the nicest perks of living in Oakmont is having access to a gym right in our community. The Fitness Center has many of the latest workout machines and is open daily from 5:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. (Tuesdays 5:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.) Yes, the Fitness Center is open for business.

What you may not be aware of is that there is a Fitness Club that you can join for a yearly fee of $30. The funds raised are used to purchase new equipment, repair existing equipment and to pay for our on-site trainer, John Phillips. Each member of the Fitness Club is entitled to a 20-minute session with John four times a year. That is a bargain for personal training! Maybe you need a fitness tune up after last year. Or you’ve been thinking about changing up your workout routine. Perhaps you are ready to get serious about improving your balance or your core strength. John is qualified to assist you with all of your fitness goals. (If you paid your dues in 2020, you are all paid up through 2021. Take advantage of this benefit.) John’s email is Or give him a call at (707) 494-9086.

Why not consider joining the Fitness Club and rededicate yourself to staying fit and healthy? Grab your mask and bring your check to the drop box located in the Fitness Center. Then talk to John about your fitness goals. You’ll be glad you did!
