Our History

Versatile Fitness began around 2009 with one lonely trainer at a park in Crown Point, San Diego. Training one client at a time in San Diego parks and homes was a fun business but the overall impact was small.  Since there are only so many hours in a day we needed to find a way to leverage time and be able to service more people.  The universe led us to our first facility in March 2014 and Versatile Fitness Clairemont was born.  Bryan Mistretta and Mike Hastings joined forces and combined 24 years of fitness and nutrition experience under one roof.

Our goal was to create a positive and welcoming space with the ability to train any person at any fitness level.  We also committed to developing a workout that was extremely efficient, effective and was congruent with our training philosophies.  Combining functional strength training, alongside cardiovascular training, with a high-energy soundtrack was the vision.  Through many trials and tribulations, positives and negatives, likes and dislikes, we molded together with the perfect 45-minute circuit training workout.  We created a welcoming, respectful, clean, friendly and non-intimidating environment where you receive individual attention in a group setting.  The group training builds camaraderie, a support system, teamwork and some friendly competition.  While the stations and circuits allow the trainers to help critique and guide you individually with various cues and demonstrations, we wanted to give the feel of having your own personal trainer within a motivating group class, without the financial burden of a personal trainer!

Our experience and true passion for helping others achieve their health goals has enabled us to build a wildly successful business.  We have grown an amazing team of trainers with multiple locations and the best members in the world.  We have so much desire to constantly improve our business, reach more people, stay current with fitness trends and help our members in any way possible.  The gratitude we feel every day for what has been built in such a short period of time is truly immeasurable.  We thank you and welcome you to the Versatile Fitness family with open arms.

Best boot camp experience ever. Very diverse workout.

I hated my postpartum body. But, I loved my baby and focused my entire existence on keeping him alive. I forgot about me. The mom-guilt was strong, but the mom-bod was not cute. I had to do something. I took a leap of faith and signed up for fat shred challenge in Jan 2015. I was terrified until I showed up. I was pleasantly surprised that the workouts were ONLY 45 minutes. What was even more appealing was that every 45 seconds you switch to a new station that was more challenging than the next. I kept telling myself “you can do anything for 45 seconds!” - I got this! Fast forward three years, I’m 30 lbs lighter and leaner. I have more energy for my very active toddler which is a huge win. The balance that I’ve found in focusing on ME and setting aside 45 minutes 5 days a week has made me a better mom (i think). Ha. If you’re ready to be a better version of you, check this gym out. You won’t regret it. Every single trainer is amazing. Bryan, Mike, Candace, Edgar, and Chaya...wow. I can’t thank you guys enough for inspiring me in more ways than you know. Thank you for being a gym that i can call home. You’re constantly improving which is also what I keep coming back for. �

I love working out at Versatile Fitness! Every day is something different. I leave feeling rejuvenated and full of energy. The instructors are very helpful and truly improve your workout. I, also, love the the Versatile Fitness community! I never feel judged, only encouraged. 🙂 My only wish is they had a class that started at 6:30pm or 7:00pm. I only live 3.5 miles away but once traffic starts it makes it hard to get there in time for the 6pm class (takes me at least 30 minutes). If you have a 8-5pm job it can be hard to fit working out in to an earlier time.....unless you can get up at 5am. I don't do well in the early mornings. :/ However, even though it is hard to get there during rush hour I still go cause they are awesome. It truly is a great workout. Give them a try! I usually visit their studio 2-3 times a week and attend different types of workout classes other days. I am down 11 pounds so far in 2 months and I am so much stronger!

Great workout and great people! I love how each day is different and hits all different muscle groups! They keep it fun and exciting! The trainers are all super helpful and motivating. The group fitness aspect is so supportive and encouraging! This workout will kick your butt in 45 minutes! They also have two locations and you can switch back and forth between the two! Give it a try!

The classes are challenging and i leave drenched in sweat and often times feeling like Jello. I like the workouts because they are only 45 minutes and as my wife pointed out, if you don't like a specific exercise in the circuit, ya only have to do it twice and its only 45 seconds or so.Ive had Bryan and Edgar so far and both are great trainers. They are encouraging, motivating and are right there to help me if my form is off or I'm not doing something right. Highly recommend giving them a try...

I love this gym! If you like high energy, biggest bang for your buck workouts this is it! 45 minutes and you’re in and out and the music and people are awesome! I have done the 28 day fat shred challenge too and it’s a great to boost motivation and results!

This gym has been so motivating, fun and life changing! As a working mother of a 1 year old I need a routine and classes that kick my butt but not take away from my day for too long. These 45 minute workouts allow you to go as hard as you can and push yourself to the max. It’s convenient there are classes 7 days per week to choose from between PB and Clairemont. I’m 2 months in and excited to keep the journey going with such a supportive and fun gym community!

The workouts are always fun, engaging and different and the trainers are so positive and encouraging that you can’t help but push yourself to do your best!

I recently signed up for the 7 day trial at the Clairemont location and absolutely love the workouts. The workouts change day to day, working all your muscle groups, so you definitely feel sore the next day! Looking forward to signing up longer term to get back on track.

I love this gym! I’ve been a member now for almost a year and a half and I have reached and surpassed fitness goals I never thought I would reach. The workouts are always fun yet challenging and the fast paced classes always keep you on your toes. There are plenty of classes throughout the day designed to fit any schedule as classes range from 5:30 am to 6 pm on weekdays and morning classes are run on Saturday and Sunday. Finally, the trainers at Versatile are the absolute best part of this gym. They make their members feel more like friends and family than clients and their positivity is addicting. The team is knowledgeable, motivating, and make you want to come back and work hard each and every day. If you haven’t checked this place out yet, it is a must see!

Looking for a place to get a great workout and have fun, you’ve found it. The trainers are fun, energetic, and already helpful to ensure you have the right technique. The atmosphere will push you to train harder and help you to meet your goals. There are plenty of classes each day so you have no excuse to not get in the gym. Plus, you can challenge one of the owners and get rewarded if you can beat them.

Love this gym. The trainers are knowledgeable, caring and fun. Their positivity creates a great place to learn and grow. I've never felt or looked better and I'm still motivated to keep going. I started with the challenge and stayed on because the results I got were phenomenal, but more importantly, the mind set I've developed has made all the difference in the world. I no longer worry about the number on the scale. Now I concentrate on my strength, what I can do, and what I'm going to do. I'm stronger than I've ever been, I can do things I've struggled to do before, and look forward to new challenges. This isn't just a gym, a place to loose weight with some fad diet. VF is like a family, lots of love, expertise and support to help you make life changes.

About two months ago I bought ClassPass for a month to try out different gyms and see if there was a better fit for me than LA Fitness because I was totally losing myself. I came to Versatile Fitness for the first time because it was close to my house and had great reviews.(I am now a member at Versatile).I never realized that it was possible to get in shape and change my body without the 90 minute training in the gym, counting reps and using a stopwatch! The 45 minute workouts are always different, and they are fun and crazy and hard all at the same time. Mike and Bryan, the two trainers, are always there to push you and make you work harder and keep you going (and laughing). For the first time in three years, I feel like I am gaining confidence and caring for my body, and I know for sure I wouldn't be at this point if it wasn't for these two guys. This is only my fourth week as a member, and I've already lost more than 10 inches off my body (!!!), and this is just the beginning. I strongly recommend Versatile Fitness for anyone: someone who wants to change their body, someone who doesn't have a lot of time during the day and needs to get a good workout in before or after work, or someone that just wants a change in their regular daily fitness routine!

This gym is what got me back into Gym-style fitness! I usually like to vary it up but the gym typically gets old the quickest before I'm ready for something new. But I will say this workout NEVER gets old!!! And you feel amazing after each one... It's the fastest 45 minutes of a hard workout you will ever experience! It's fun, I'm usually sore after every routine, and it varies from day to day. The music is bumpin and the trainers are the best! They are friends who want to help you feel great, become stronger, and stay dedicated. It can be life changing, � you VF! Especially having 2 different locations and options now keeps it even more fun and easier to go...Slightly different workouts and set up/equipment, but love both spots...these boys should be proud, you might become addicted!�

This place ROCKS!!! Brian and Mike each have their own style that motivates you to work out. The workouts are fun, challenging, motivating and the time flies by. Not to mention, a 100 bucks for unlimited classes, that is a great Dealio. So give them a 7 day trial. You will not be disappointed.....

Best 45 minute workout out there! After about 3 weeks, several of my family/friends were telling me how fit I was looking and I was also feeling stronger. I had to move away from SD so I try to recreate these workouts at my gym but somehow they're not the same without great trainers and other supportive members. Thanks to everyone at Versatile Fitness!!!

Thanks you Bryan and Mike at VF! I love this gym! I participated in the fat shred challenge and lost more than 15 lbs. I continue to incorporate the inspirational messages I received during the challenge in my daily routine and continue to lose weight. When I started with VF I had a shoulder issue. They worked with me on that and I'm happy to report my shoulder issue is gone. You guys rock!
