Fit From The Ground Up LLC was established in February 2011. It was founded by Ruben Cervantes and Christine Tarpinian.
Ruben and Christine, as personal trainers, felt there was a need to change the perception of what true fitness was in society. Looking around gyms and other fitness centers, they saw many folks performing workouts with no purpose and in a dangerous or inefficient manner. Understanding how important not only fitness but proper fitness was to changing their own lives and the lives of their clients they decided to create Fit From The Ground Up.
Fit From The Ground Up’s original mission was to service and educate low income individuals and small groups with fitness programs that were specifically tailored to the needs of the individual or group. As the company evolved Fit From The Ground Up’s mission became “to strengthen communities, families, and individuals through educating them on health and fitness concept.” Understanding that change is not something that happens overnight, Fit From The Ground Up began establishing strong ties in the community including the school board and city council members. Initiating programs geared to help the community increase the awareness of the importance of exercise and eating clean and balanced meals.
