Staff with heart, they really care about each and every single person that walks through their doors! Hands down this is a gym that produces more than results they rebuild people that are broken and give them a true care plan for their life

B2B is such a fantastic attribute to the neighborhood, their hearts are deep and in the right place. They have done so much for me personally, and seeing what they are doing with today's children is a blessing!

This place is fantastic! My son is enrolled in the kids boxing class, it's going on one year this month. The instructor, Coach Art, is amazing. He teaches discipline and respect but also has fun with the kids. They do get quite a workout in the one hour they are there. My son has grown and learned so much. I am grateful that he has the opportunity to attend this class. This place is truly a hidden gem. We are happy to be part of the B2B family. Thank you Gail & Arturo!

I am so proud to be a member and supporter of B2B! I have seen a difference in the kids who participate in the program not only showing growth and discipline, but respect. We also see self confidence, control and academic focus with our jr. boxers. They show progress in their physical activity and some have transformed themselves into great young role models. Arturo has a great tough love when it comes to his program and we could not be more happy.

Back to Basics has been an amazing discovery for us. We've been trying to find a sport that our son really enjoys; soccer, baseball, water polo, hockey, etc. Nothing held his attention until we were referred to Back to Basics and their Junior kick boxing program. Not only does he absolutely love it, he's learning self defense as well as respect for himself and for the people around him. It's as important to protect yourself, but also to look people in the eyes, shake their hand and say "Thank you". The coaches command respect, and the children are happy to give it to them. The money we spend at Back to Basics is definitely worth it, and I can't say enough good things about this studio.

It is such a pleasure and a privilege to be part of the Back to Basics Fitness family. The husband and wife team of Arturo and Gail Medina have many years of training and experience in the fitness industry. What sets them apart is the way they conduct their business and their lives which is with a lot of passion, compassion and the sincere desire to help children that are overweight and struggling with issues of self-esteem. I have personally witnessed the amazing transformation of one of the young boys that have lost weight through the youth boxing program. Thank you Arturo and Gail for all you do for our community!

Like B2B says everyone is like "Family" this has been the best Fitness Studio! My son takes Jr. Kick boxing and has learned so much in the 5-6 months he has attended. We will never find another studio like this that will incorporate adult and children's fitness into a welcoming and warm Family Environment!
