About (Our Story)

Welcome to Private Fitness

Juli & Servando

We are thankful to be celebrating our 15th year in business and are forever grateful to our wonderful clients for their support, friendship, and business over the years.  With our recent 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 and Nutrition program and Classes (Zumba, Yoga, Barre Fitness, FIT Body Circuit, Drums Alive, 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 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.

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.

2009 |  Zumba was added to the class schedule becoming one of our most popular classes offered.  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.

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 |  Happy New Year!  There are many new things on the horizon for this year!  Come be a part of the best private gym in the neighborhood!
