About Us

Movitative Health & Fitness Center | Citrus Heights

Relax your Mind & Strengthen Your Body. Running on the treadmill, working out on the elliptical machine, and lifting weights are all excellent forms of exercise. These are also great times to concentrate on you, not the distractive stresses of everyday life. Yet, there's more to fitness & living a Healthy Life.

When you are looking for a Certified Personal Fitness Trainer, it is usually due to hitting a plateau in your current exercise program or you may be working out regularly, but just not meeting desired weight loss or level of fitness goals.  A Certified Personal Fitness Trainer can absolutely help.

These situations are what a Certified Personal Fitness Trainer has studied and has the experience getting clients through the plateaus, meeting weight loss, and achieving physical strength or fitness goals through proper nutrition, customized exercise programs, and specialized Coaching.

So, whether you’ve taken a brief hiatus from the gym and are trying to get back in gear, have never stepped foot inside a gym or are looking to join a new gym, but are not sure what you really need?

Well, you can contact us and we will help you find answers to your question, even if our services are not the solution you need to reach your goals.

Our goal is to help you reach Your Goals, the decision to do something to achieve them is an extremely important first step.

Because your fitness health needs and goals are unique to you, as you may want to run a mile or a marathon, compete as a bodybuilder or just get in shape to get back to wearing your favorite clothes.

When you join Motivative Health & Fitness your Personal Fitness Training will include the benefit of dedicated Personal Trainers, Fitness Instructors, and Friendly Staff who will work with you through every step.

Fitness is Important for Everyone

Personal Training With Motivative Health & Fitness

Certified Personal Fitness Trainer Video Review by Judy R. (4+yrs) of Rocklin, CA

An important part of beginning any fitness activity, at any age, is the basic understanding of your body, and the how what you do and eat changes it.

Our Goal is to become physically fit and healthy, yet we want to avoid overzealous enthusiasm which can lead to an injury or reduce your continued effort due to "burn-out".

When most people start to exercise, whether in a class or on their own, they can be unsure on what they should be doing. 

Sometimes they go to a big gym, going through many fitness equipment options and the motions of mimicking what they see others doing.

Just because gyms allow you to do a particular exercise or use any of their equipment, does not mean it is safe or the best way to reach your goals.

Also, the Fitness Level & Physical Abilities of people in these gyms are likely very different from yours, and you could be putting yourself at risk for injury trying to copy what they do without proper instruction. 

MHF will educate you on how to properly do each exercise needed to reach your goals and teach you how to do them, and why it is important.

Physical Fitness & Nutritional Health is the Best Investment You can do  Today for Your Life Tomorrow!

What We Help You Do

Health & Physical Fitness is Fabulous lifestyle

Transform your Body

Motivative Health & Fitness has a very comprehensive approach to Personal Training.

Rather than a one-size-fits-all mindset, we take the time to learn about you, your long and short-term goals, always considering your current Fitness, Health, and Nutritional Needs.

Find Your Physical Fitness Path

Running on the Treadmill or Elliptical Machine, and Lifting Weights are all excellent forms of exercise. Yet, it’s good to change your routine at times to get the best results for your effort.

When your body gets used to an exercise, your muscles are no longer challenged.  Working with a Certified Personal Trainer is a great way to find the Optimal Path to Your Fitness Goals.

Customized Fitness Programs & Regular Exercise

Personal Fitness Trainer

Are you intimidated by the idea of joining a gym? If so, you are not alone, as sometimes the gym experience can be overwhelming, if you’re a gym novice needing guidance and someone to answer all your questions.

Sometimes what you need to reach your goals is a treadmill, other times a bike or elliptical, but is it in conjunction with weights and stretching?  What do you do first or after you work out?  What do you wear? Is there a balance to look good at the gym and getting in shape faster?

At Motivative Health & Fitness, our Certified Trainers are here to answer those questions and so much more.  Just give us a Call.

Group Fitness Classes

While running on the treadmill, working out on the elliptical machine, and lifting weights are all excellent forms of exercise, it is always a good idea to change up your workout routine by taking a class.

When your body gets used to an exercise, your muscles are no longer being challenged. Variety in your workout routine will keep your body guessing, resulting in a more successful workout.

At Motivative Health & Fitness, we offer a wide range of classes to meet a variety of fitness levels. From Pilates to Cycling, there’s always something new for you to try at Motivative Health & Fitness.

Mobile Or Private Gym

At Motivative Health & Fitness you can train as you like in our judgment free environment.

Being able to reduce stress and to workout is integral to a healthy life, but there are some places that make this difficult because of the image centric atmospheres not conducive to learning about improving your health, mind body and spirit.

Motivative Health & Fitness understands this and is why we also offer convenient Private Training Sessions in your home or office.

What better place for you to be stress free, in a familiar surrounding, and all you have to do is open the door motivated and ready to go!
