“This life therefore is not righteousness but growth in righteousness; not health but healing, not being but becoming, not rest but exercise. We are not what we shall be but we are growing toward it; the process is not yet finished but it is going on; this is not the end but it is the road. All does not yet gleam in glory but all is being purified.” -- MARTIN LUTHER

Challenge yourself to a combination of fun and physicality. If you want to be in the best shape of your life, results will show. All shapes and sizes are welcome to join our best small group training classes. We strike an excellent balance between the workout and fun. Our San Francisco athletes are exhausted but still exhilarated following Mike Jigalin's class to burn fat and calories to get that bikini body. Join the movement, we crush workouts outside bootcamp at Lyon st. steps and indoor at Jig's Gym on Lombard. Jigalin Fitness provides dynamic personal training to help prepare you to the next level of strength performance. Our personal trainers are certified for one on one, partner or small group training to the best workout in the Marina.
Ever wonder how hard you're actually working out in the gym or during outdoor bootcamps? Most of us measure our intensity from the amount of weight we lift, reps we perform, sets we complete, respirations we take or even the sweat we perspire. Now, with our group exercise classes in the city, you're visually able to see how intense the workout actually is, wearing a heart rate monitor. Prior to the first training session, we find the right target training zone for you (burning the most fat) and get the best out of your group workout! Following the best training session in San Francisco, the amount calories burned is then analyzed and shared to everybody (which is pretty cool). Jump-in on the best group class, located in the Marina of San Francisco, to get in best shape and see what's up (your heart rate)!
This short fitness video displays outdoor bootcamp workout examples including core training. Most of the small group training with interval circuit style classes instructed by personal trainer Mike Jigalin is located in the beautiful Marina District of San Francisco near the Lyon st. steps, Crissy Field and the Lombard street gym. If you are looking for a fun workout in the Marina, try a group class and get in shape!
If your New Year's resolution is to "lose weight" or "get organized", be more specific on your approach and tackle these goals. Focus on setting a measurable goal like losing a 1lb/wk or everyday filing receipts in a folder for a concrete resolution. hny!
