I've always worked out on my own, at multiple gyms throughout the years, Golds, Family Fitness, LA Fitness, etc... This was the first time I joined a gym that puts on classes and I can honestly say, I'll never go back. The diversity of the classes and the people here is incredible. Being able to choose from so many available class times was a huge benefit as my free time is extremely limited and highly valuable to me. From day 1, I was welcomed by the instructors and the members as people from all walks of life frequent the gym and have created a very fun environment and a positive community. I would recommend VAC to anyone at any stage in their fitness and health journey.

I joined this gym during the first year of Covid.  I lost the weight I gained while working from home. In addition, I gained a bunch of friends!  This gym has a supportive community feel that I’m thankful for.  It’s like that old TV show Cheers, you walk in and everyone knows your name!!

Andrea Lorensen

I first started with this gym in 2017.  Sadly I left during the pandemic, but I recently came back and couldn't be happier.  The only regret I have is not coming back sooner (or never leaving in the first place!)  Getting back to where I was 4 years ago will take some time, but with these excellent coaches and the encouraging atmosphere this facility provides, I have no doubt I will achieve the goals I have set for myself.  Do yourself a favor and check them out!

This gym is one of a kind. The workouts are fun and challenging and they’ve built such a supportive community. Everyone is welcoming and friendly and I actually look forward to my workouts. I came to a few classes with a friend when I used to visit her in Vista and was so excited to join when I moved down here. Super grateful to be a VAC member!

4.5 years ago I came to this gym from zero physical activity, to 5am HIIT Classes, 5 days a week. The culture and community is amazing at this gym. They have a way of making you want to show up every morning at 5am to pump heavy weights and get some cardio in. I can’t say enough good things about the trainers and the community, they make you feel like a part of the family. So many fun challenges, hikes, and gatherings. I would recommend this gym to everyone! If I can do it, so can you!

I honestly cannot say enough good things about Vista Athletic Club (VAC); if you need a regular workout schedule that is both challenging and fun, and if you also like receiving encouragement (not judgment) from fellow gym members, this is the place for you.

In May 2019, I joined an eight-week fitness challenge at VAC, and enjoyed it so much I joined the gym full time …… in 15 weeks  I lost 55 pounds, 9.5% body fat, and 24 total inches.  Vista Athletic Club is staffed and attended by some of the most remarkable people I’ve ever met, and I can’t remember when I’ve had more fun.

So whether you need to lose 5lbs or 50lbs, give VAC a try; I give them my highest five-star recommendation.

Piotr Dorobczyñski

We joined this gym 4 years ago. It is great family oriented gym with superb workouts. Our favs are 5 am swole patrol and hikes during the challenges which they have couple times a year. It is great place if you want to stay healthy and make some friends.

Jessica Taft

I joined Vista Athletic Club after trying several gyms in the area and immediately knew this would be my new gym family.  Everyone was very welcoming and encouraging.  The workouts are challenging and effective.  Brian has fun challenges regularly and there is something for everyone when it comes to out of gym activities.  I even joined a kickball league with ladies from the gym.  I highly recommend coming in for a class to check it out!


I cannot say enough positive things about this gem of a gym! From the moment I stepped through the doors, I felt welcomed into a vibrant and supportive community unlike any other fitness facility I've experienced.

The emphasis on group training here is truly transformative. Every session is led by knowledgeable and motivating instructors who go above and beyond to ensure everyone feels included and challenged. Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned athlete, there's something for everyone in these group classes.

But what sets this gym apart is the sense of camaraderie and encouragement among members. You're not just another face in the crowd here; you're part of a family. The support and motivation from fellow gym-goers make every workout feel like a team effort, pushing you to achieve your goals in ways you never thought possible.

I have been part of the gym community since June of last year. I am on my second challenge with them- down 22 lbs and 6.5% body fat since I started my first challenge in September. But it goes beyond that- I have met so many wonderful, welcoming people and feel part of a community. Physically, I feel much more capable and have been seeing much better results with each fit test. My endurance level has increased and I notice it when I run or do other active things outside of the gym. I highly recommend checking them out!

Regina Medley

I joined the NYNY fitness challenge in February 2024, and have lost 10 lbs in just four weeks.  It’s a wonderful, supportive environment; my workouts are filled with friends and family and neighbors.  I give the Vista Athletic Club (VAC) my highest 5-Star rating.

Mike Cox

Great gym!!! When I started 4 months ago, I couldn't do a single push up, now I'm busting them out. Fantastic coaches that are skilled and wonderful motivators. Building muscle and loosing fat. For a 54 year old guy, that feels great. Highly recommend!!

Tracy McCarthy

Editing with an update March 2024-  I’m still a part of VAC and love it.   I’ve even branched out and have taken classes outside my comfort zone and found I love them and what a great workout they are (SWOLE Patrol weighing for instance, offered several times during the week.

It isn’t too often that you can say a business has changed your life, but joining Vista Athletic Club last summer after a fitness challenge has improved my life tenfold.  I’m down 56 pounds, have more energy and stamina and have gained a spectacular fitness family that cheers each other on.  The coaches are wonderful plus there is a  variety of classes for any number of types of work outs or schedules. Wholeheartedly recommend.

Vista Athletic Club is not your average gym. No standing in line to use equipment here… knowledgeable trainers have developed fun and effective workouts that will make you sweat good! Staff and members are welcoming and encouraging. Excellent vibe. This will always be my gym.

Natasha Smith

I have been with Vista athletic club since 2020. The people that go to this gym make it FAMILY!!! Best work outs I've ever had!!!! Love it here.

Jeane Shepherd

Been a member for 2 years and it’s the best gym I’ve ever sign up for! The classes are intense workout and a great way to make new friends!

Amber Fielding

I have been a member here for around 4 years and I can’t imagine going anywhere else! The sense of family and community that we have at VAC is like nothing else! Best gym and best people ever make it so much easier to stick to an active life! I have met some of my best friends here! Try it out and you won’t be disappointed!!!

Laura van Dam

I can't say enough positive things about this gym. If you are looking  for some great workouts, wonderful coaches and amazing people who have become some of my dear friends, this is the perfect opportunity. I can't imagine not starting my day off every morning here! You will be amazed with all the varieties of strength training and cardio classes they provide. I have been a member for over 5 years now and can't believe how strong I have become, not to mention I have lost about 6% body fat. If you are looking for a place to improve your overall fitness while gaining the support of super coaching and an extremely supportive community give it a try. They offer a 21 day trial and you won't be disappointed.

Jessica Carter

I joined VAC to feel like myself again postpartum. It's always daunting to start a new gym with strangers but the community at Vista Athletic Club is great and most of all encouraging. I never thought I'd wake up so early to get a workout in but I'm doing it and I feel great. It's important to me to show my boys to stay healthy and have movement in your life. Thanks Brian for creating a space for my physical and mental health!

Ashley Gallagher

Vista Athletic Club has been awesome to me. Their trainers are exceptional, the overall vibe is great and I have had nothing but good experiences. I definitely recommend them to my friends and family. I work out at Vista Athletic Club about 4-5 times a week and find the consistent positive trainers, awesome music and participants who take class create a perfect workout environment. I’m down 40lbs since joining in October of 2021 and I feel freaking great! They’re changing lives and I can’t thank them enough!!

Crissi Andrade

This is the best local boot camp style gym in the area! I came to this gym after years of not taking care of myself. After having kids, it was so hard to find a workout that I actually enjoyed and wanted to stick with. I was welcomed by the nicest coaches and members, and have had tons of help and encouragement along the way. I've been here for about 5 months now, and I'm happy to say I have a super consistent workout schedule of 4-5 days a week, and haven't felt this good in a very long time. There are all shapes and sizes, all ages, and zero judgement at VAC. They have a great 21 days for $21 option to try. I highly suggest it! As a mom who needed some major help getting back to myself, I would definitely recommend this gym. I have become one of those annoying people that actually WANTS to workout every day and misses it when I don't! Thank you Brian and everyone else at Vista Athletic Club!

Jennifer Guerrero

I wish I had joined this gym sooner because its awesome! What makes it so unique is the wonderful community vibe that this gym has created as well as being a small family friendly gym. Huge deal that you can bring your kiddo to the gym with you and they are right there with you. This in itself allowed me to stay committed to working out here regularly and getting results. The coaches are great & the classes are challenging and effective. Love that you reserve classes on the app because it holds me accountable. I joined 3 months ago & have been loving the six weeks of summer challenge which pushed me to do things I didn't think I could do! This challenge has allowed me to adopt new healthy habits and have fun doing it! My energy has increased, I am seeing great results and I feel amazing since starting my fitness journey here. It also is wonderful to be surrounded by a supportive and encouraging "gym family."

Caleb McKinley

VAC has something for all ages! Our family has been part of this gym for 6 years going strong and appreciate the family-friendly focus. Our kids had the best time this summer at the Endless Summer Kids Camp. So many amazing, fun, safe activities that kept them more than entertained all week! Honestly, it's one of their favorite summer memories. Thanks, VAC, and this entire community! We love and appreciate how you keep us healthy, strong, and motivated to do life better!

Awesome coaching staff, & workouts for all levels!

Great gym with great people and a community feel!.  Everyone is down to earth, friendly and encouraging.  They make it easy for anyone to jump in and feel at home whether you are young, old, in shape, out of shape, experienced, or a beginner.  Love the in studio or zoom options, and the challenging are really fun and motivating.

LOVE Vista Fitness!  The coaches really care about your personal journey, and joining was the best decision! Not only has it changed how I look and feel, I’ve also made new friends who encourage and push me to go just a little harder! Thank you to Brian for creating such a wonderful gym we can call home!

Charlotte F.

Vista Fitness Boot Camp is not like your average gym. Its literally a family! You know the trainers and they know you. You get to workout with a lot of the same people daily that you form relationships with! They offer a wide variety of classes - HIIT, Yoga, Strength training, kickboxing, run club and speed training. This is, by far, the best place to go to be the best you that you can be!

Maureen C.

Absolutely love this club and the different training options available to members.

Regina M.

It’s a great gym with great coaches; best care anywhere!

Sara H.

More than a gym. Vista Fitness is a community of people who encourage you and help you to meet your own personal goals. It has given me and my son a stronger bond (he is my workout buddy) and I am so grateful for this placeβ€πŸ™

Rosa M.

Started attending to improve my health and decrease my weight.  The coaches are encouraging, patient, and motivational. They along with the challenges & workouts have helped me with weight loss (over 40 lbs in five months) as well as with my sugar level. It is back to normal when I was two points away from being diabetic.  The members are regular people like you and me and they become part of a team that motivates you as well. Highly recommend this place.

Adele M.

Preface by saying I AM NOT A GYM PERSON and I don't like working out.

That said, as I reached a milestone birthday, and I saw the number on the scale rise, my clothes didn't fit, and my belly blob grow, I knew I needed to do something.  I found my #fitfam at Vista Fitness Boot Camp.  Supportive, energetic, and actually makes the hard work fun.

The 6 week Boot Camp program is perfect for me and my lifestyle with multiple classes to choose from, and even includes free weekly yoga!  It was a short term commitment for me to set long term health goals, and step by step, burpee by burpee, pushup by pushup, I am meeting those goals.

Thanks to Brian and all the coaches, I am in my best shape of the past  20 years, and way healthier to boot.  HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Laura V.

Vista Fitness Family is an amazing place to work out and it literally changed my life and so many other members. There is a since of community here at this gym where a work out isn't just for the body but for the mind and soul as well. The coaches and the members make this place unlike any other work out facility I have ever belonged too. Brian Belasco is the owner and puts his everything into making this gym unique. If you are looking for a change in your life to feel better in every aspect this is the place to join.

Jennifer R.

This gym and it's awesome Coaches are 100% dedicated to changing people's fitness lives. The amazing community/family Brian has created actually keeps me motivated & on the right track! Everyone supports and encourages each other, no matter what level you are starting at. I can't believe I am actually doing it, I just show up everyday! I know I wouldn't be here 10 months later without the inspiration and support I receive every day from my new Fitfam at Vista Fitness Bootcamp.  πŸ’― πŸš€πŸ”₯πŸ’ͺ🏼

If you’re looking for a fitness FAMILY, a place to motivate and encourage you, a place to achieve your goals and call home ... Vista Fitness is the place for you! The coaches truly care about your well being and success, and the other members become your friends. I can’t even imagine doing a bootcamp anywhere else! This is home. ❀️
