Brooks and JenniferStaff


Hello Everyone!

My wife Jennifer and I took over this gym in early 2016 and re-branded it to the new franchise Fitness:1440. From day one, we have worked hard and continue to strive, to bring you the best training facility/full featured gym in the area. Jennifer is there 6 days a week running the show and you will see me in and out of the gym throughout the week (usually carrying a ladder or tool bag in a rush.) Both of us have sports backgrounds and have spent most of our lives one way or another in a gym. So it only made since for us to own one at some point. We are trying to get away from the traditional standard fare gym, that is why right off the bat, we blew out the walls and expanded next door to include a fitness studio and interval training room. Our focus from day one has been customer service and going the extra mile to make sure everyone has what they need to accomplish their fitness goals. We have plenty of new things in the coming years planned, and hope you can join as they unfold.

I enjoy helping my clients reach their fitness goals daily, by challenging them during class. My joy comes when my clients tell me that they have seen results from attending my classes and maintaining healthy eating habits. Working out is not easy, but I have seen my clients push forward through the toughest of times. This definitely brings me joy. My clients are like family and our classes are like a reunion. Our motto at Any Bodies Zumba is; The Total Body Experience Where Every Body Gets a Work Out!

So come out and join us for fun times and a great work out where you will definitely get SMASHED!!!

Rita FullickInstructor

Rita began practicing yoga as a high school student in Los Angeles. From that early introduction, 50 years later, she still loves and now teaching yoga. Her passion is to create a sense of belonging in her classes by coupling her serious dedication with a lighthearted approach. In this way, you will find her classes are alive with friends and humor based on connecting real life situations to the physical practice.

Rita encourages new students to join in and enjoy practicing yoga.  Her creative spirit is used to share a unique experience … no two classes are equal.   Each class touches the heart, spirit and mind using the breath and body. She is constantly approaching yoga from different angles yet maintains a steady commitment to alignment, physical well being, and emotional safety.
