Santa Cruz Power Fitness, here for you sunup to sundown.

At Santa Cruz Power Fitness, we know that one of the things you want most from a gym is convenience. And what constitutes a convenient time for you to work out is not necessarily the same for the next person. With that in mind, we have purposely made the window of opportunity for working out in our gym every bit as wide as the day (and night) are long. How does 4:30 AM to 11 PM sound? Those are our hours Monday through Thursday. On Friday, the only difference is we close an hour earlier at 10 PM. And on Saturday and Sunday, we’re open from 7 AM to 8 PM.

The way we look at it, we’re open an your convenience, not ours. And we wouldn’t have it any other way.


Losing weight isn’t just about lifting weights or cardio.

It’s also about eating right. And as our personal trainers will show you, good nutrition can be every bit as enjoyable, and in many cases even more so, than bad eating habits. Eating right is not about deprivation, it’s about making smart choices. Simple food swaps can save you hundreds of calories and can be every bit as fun to eat as the calorie-laden choices you swapped out. Our trainers will teach you all this and more and provide you with an exercise regimen that will get you feeling higher on the new version of you than you every thought possible.

Yoga or Pilates, which is best for you?

At Santa Cruz Power Fitness, we have a lot of members who go to both Yoga and Pilates classes. That being said, there’s no question that a great many students favor one over the other based on the fundamental difference between the two: Yoga is more for flexibility and Pilates is more for strengthening. That being said, the breathing techniques differ as well. Because Yoga focuses more on the mind, the intent is to foster a state of relaxation, whereas in a Pilates class, the goal of the breathing is to feed the muscles with energy to exercise more effectively. All of that being said, for the vast majority of our members new to Yoga and Pilates, or to one or the other, we encourage them to try both and decide. After all, since all Yoga and Pilates classes are free at Santa Cruz Power Fitness, why not try both?
