I have lost over 30 lbs and increased my strength, endurance and flexibility at WarriorZ, all things that normally decrease with age! As a 45 year old mother of 5 and former aerobic instructor/personal trainer I can honestly say CrossFit training and Olympic Weight lifting has given me the best and quickest results ever! The charisma of the owners, the coaches and fellow members makes me look forward to every class! I strongly recommend you stop in for your first time free class and be ready to do WORK that PRODUCES RESULTS!

WarriorZ is the best facility to train at in EG! The owners, Charlie and Micha Zamora, have produced an environment where obtaining you physical fitness goals are not just GOALS, but benchmarks that will be reached no questions asked. The atmosphere is unlike any other gym you will step foot in. Myself, along with my wife and three boys have found our home at WarriorZ! The trainers are top notch and you have more one on one time with the trainers at this facility. If your looking to get stronger, faster, lose weight, or take your fitness to another level, then look no more. WarriorZ is your antidote! Hope to see you in the BOX soon!!

WarriorZ is the best! Charlie and Micha are not only knowledgeable, but genuinely interested in all their clients' health and fitness goals. My entire family trains at WarriorZ; each one of us with different goals and each one of us has made significant gains. I personally have lost 30 lbs., found a love for Olympic lifting and embraced a healthy lifestyle. I've never been stronger or healthier. WarriorZ makes you better. If you're looking for a place to be encouraged, motivated and cared for, come and join the WarriorZ family!

Warriorz is like a truly loving family--the kind that gives you a good, solid kick in the butt when you need it to keep going. I've played sports from when I was 4 years old, all through school and college, and recreationally after, but I've never been as fit as Warriorz has made me.

Warriorz is a very welcoming fitness center and the people there are just as motivated to stay fit as I am. The workouts are building muscles in places that I have never had. I wrestle at Elk Grove highschool and coming to Warriorz definitely helps me stay fit for wrestling. -Joey Lopez

WarriorZ has helped me make tremendous strides in overall leg strength,core strength,upper body strength and technique with my lifts. They have helped me in weight gain,flexibility,coordination,conditioning and endurance. Next fall, I will be attending the University of California Berkeley on a football scholarship, and Charlie Zamora has been by my side, making sure my training is progressing at the right pace. Choosing WarriorZ to prepare myself for the next level in football has been a great choice. I have complete trust that Charlie and his staff will have me ready when it is time to leave for Berkeley. I will continue to train at WarriorZ when I am home on breaks from school.

I have been a member at Warriorz since October 2011!! I LOVE this place! WarriorZ is my home away from home. Charlie, Micha, and staff are all so kind, supportive and knowledgeable. My husband and I both train here and our 7 year-old daughter also participates in the kids' Crossfit classes. WarriorZ is very family friendly and all who train there is considered family. I love the workouts, atmosphere and community! I feel STRONGER after every workout! WarriorZ is THE PLACE TO TRAIN!!!!!

I've been members a multiple gyms and found California Family fitness is home to me! The staff is great. They are very friendly. The work out enviroment is great. The members here are very respective compared to other health clubs. The staff is are very personable, especially the trainers and the membership consultants. If you want to work out at a place where you can bring your kids and not worry about them this is the place to be! This place does hold great value and is worth every penny!
