About (Our Story)

Welcome to Private Fitness

Juli & Servando

We are thankful to be celebrating our 18th year in business and are forever grateful to our wonderful clients for their support, friendship, and business over the years.  With our expansion at the end of 2013, we now have a total of 5,400 square feet equipped with an exquisite gym area for our Personal Training and 3 different studios for our Pilates Reformer and Fitness Classes (Zumba, Yoga, Barre, FIT Body Circuit, Piloxing and more)!

Established in 1999 | Private Fitness began as 1,600 square foot facility that offered Private Personal Training and was considered one of the most exquisite private studios in the area.

2000 |  The next year, Private Fitness expanded by adding The Yoga Room, a studio located in the same center offering Vinyasa style Yoga classes with traditionally trained instructors in a warm environment.  The Yoga Room was one of the first dedicated yoga studios in North Orange County and thrived.

2003 |  Servando Chavez and Juli Stockstill partnered together to establish a place for fitness unlike any other in the area.  In May, they acquired Private Fitness and The Yoga Room because of the potential they envisioned with the combination of the two studios and the diverse yet complimentary offering of Personal Training, Yoga and beyond.

2006 |  The Yoga Room began to expand it’s offering beyond yoga with mat pilates classes.  The response was so positive, that the exploration of Pilates began.

2007 |  A small office was converted to provide private Pilates Reformer session with a studio Reformer with Tower.  These private sessions were so well received with amazing results by clients that the work to provide Group Reformer Pilates sessions began.

2008 |  In April, 4 Pilates Reformers were purchased and The Yoga Room began to offer one of the first locations in North Orange County for equipment based Pilates classes, officially changing the name to The Pilates & Yoga Room.  Soon, a 5th Pilates Reformer was purchased to keep up with the demand of these amazing classes.

2009 |  Zumba was added to the class schedule becoming one of our most popular classes offered, which continues to this day.  This year Private Fitness and The Pilates & Yoga Room were recognized as Top 5 Personal Trainers in Orange County by Fox LA.

2010 |  Due to the downturn in the economy and witnessing a growing number of injuries in large bootcamp style workouts, the need for personalized guidance at an affordable price was evident. This was the year that we added the opportunity of small Group (limited to 3) Personal Training, which makes the value of this program one of our best.   We were again ranked Top 5 Personal Trainers in Orange County by Fox LA.

2011 |  In February, ballet barres were installed to begin offering Barre Fitness classes in March at the studio. This ballet inspired fitness class which emphasizes small movements with control, precision, and balance was a perfect addition to the schedule and continues to be a favorite class today.

2013 |  The need to have more gym space for our Private & Group Personal Training, as well as separate studios for our Pilates Reformer and other group Classes was evident.  In October of 2013, we expanded Private Fitness and moved The Pilates & Yoga Room within the gym to create a comprehensive 5,400 square foot facility that specializes diverse yet complimentary programs that gives you ultimate flexibility and variety!  We now will be using the name Private Fitness only as we have always been one, but had two separate studios.

2014 |  New equipment was added to sustain the growth of the gym expansion, including an innovative recumbent elliptical designed for clients who have concerns with their low back, knee, ankle, or other limitation.  Private Fitness has always been a go to gym for post therapy work on various ailments, as we cater toward clients of 40+ and can provide the specialized training that is often needed for optimal results.

2015 |  With our expansion, a therapeutic room was added and we began offering Private & Duet Yoga session, therapeutic stretching, and massage therapy in this private studio.  Personal Training has been our long standing specialty, to keep up with new fitness trends and applications, an apparatus was installed to offer TRX suspension training within our Personal and Group Personal Training with several of our Personal Trainers becoming TRX certified.

2016 |  The synergy of having our programs of Personal Training, Pilates Reformer, Fitness Classes, and more continue to thrive being altogether within our 5,400 square foot facility.  A 6th Pilates Reformer was purchased to keep up with the demand of this ever popular low impact discipline that yields amazing results.

2017 |  Make it your best year yet, come be a part of the best private gym in the Orange, Villa Park, Anaheim Hills, Placentia, and Yorba Linda community!
