Fitness & Personal Training

Exercise and fitness are core components of a healthy lifestyle and are frequently, along with diet and nutrition, the most effective treatments for many chronic disease conditions. Research over the past 20 years has demonstrated the profound effects exercise has in prolonging life, improving cognitive function, reducing the risks of cardiovascular disease and metabolic dysfunction, and preventing excessive weight gain.

At IMGI we offer a variety of programs designed to return you to optimal health.

Sunrise Striders
A great way to start the day, this early morning walking program takes off from the IMGI parking lot and heads out along the San Diego Creek trail for a brisk hour-long walk. As much social support as it is aerobic exercise, the Striders program is living proof that exercise can be every bit as enjoyable as it is beneficial. We walk together Monday through Friday from 7:00 to 8:00 AM.

One-On-One Personal Training
For those looking to make consistent progress in their fitness, one-on-one personal training offers a supervised format for increasing volume, intensity, and resistance; while also adjusting focus with new exercises and techniques. We have 3-month and 6-month programs that meet once, twice or three times per week. Sessions are one-hour long and include a warm-up, resistance training, and stretching/cool down.

Small Group Personal Training
Small Group training sessions offer an affordable, yet still highly effective, alternative to one-on-one training. These hour-long classes consist of no more than three participants who perform the same sets of circuit-based exercises. Each class member, however, does the exercises at her own speed, intensity, and resistance level. This allows for individual progress in a supportive group setting. Classes can be taken two or three times per week and are offered Monday through Friday, Wednesday evening, and Saturday morning.

All of our Center for Active Lifestyle Medicine programs – weight loss, PCOS, detoxification, and anti-aging – incorporate fitness training, and all sessions are run by our ACSM-certified Personal Trainer, Bob Tygenhof.
