Fans of the San Francisco 49ers and fitness enthusiasts of all levels will be able to train like a 49ers player when the flagship 49ers Fit fitness and recovery center opens at Westgate Center Outlet Mall in San Jose (1600 Saratoga Ave.) next week. This unique fitness concept, which the 49ers are planning to duplicate in other locations across the Bay Area, consists of more than 36,500-square feet of floor space featuring brand new, top-of-the-line 49ers-branded strength and conditioning equipment, an innovative recovery lounge, large indoor turf training field, a diverse slate of boutique-style group and HIIT fitness classes, and a wide range of first-class amenities.
The opening of the full-service, technologically advanced fitness and recovery center was celebrated on Thursday, November 15th, with a ribbon cutting ceremony featuring 49ers President Al Guido, 49ers Fit chairman Mark Mastrov, official 49ers Fit Ambassador Roger Craig and others. The event included the full 49ers Fit team of 10 personal training coaches leading the several founding members and the media on an exclusive tour of the entire facility.
The 49ers Fit concept has been developed over the last two years in collaboration with Mark Mastrov, founder of M6 Football and 24 Hour Fitness, and features many of the same state-of-the-art fitness equipment and advanced recovery treatments used by 49ers players. Members of 49ers Fit will have access to fitness programs personally developed by the 49ers strength and conditioning team, helping members train just like the pros. 49ers Fit also features a high-tech infrastructure that will enable tech-savvy individuals to track their workouts and wirelessly link to the gym's audio and video feeds like no other fitness center in the Bay Area.
