We have 20+ Years of Experience.
The year was 2009, the place was Crown Point Park, San Diego. One lonely New Yorker found himself 3000 miles away from home with a set of dumbbells, a stopwatch, and idea that would change the lives of many. It was that very day that Versatile Fitness was born.
Versatile Fitness was created by Bryan Mistretta, who started his business training one client at a time in various parks and homes throughout San Diego county. As his following increased significantly, Bryan expanded his program to group training sessions to leverage his time and have a greater impact on his loyal patrons.
In 2014, Bryan partnered with fellow trainer and nutritionist Mike Hastings and opened his very first indoor boot camp studio in Clairemont, San Diego. The people kept coming, the classes kept filling, and Clairemont was running out of space. In 2016, Bryan opened his second, much larger boot camp studio location in Pacific Beach, San Diego.
Bryan and Mike’s goal was to create a positive and welcoming space for any person at any fitness level. They have committed themselves to developing an efficient and effective workout that was congruent to their training philosophies. Combining functional strength and cardiovascular training with a high-energy soundtrack was the vision. Through many trials and tribulations, positives and negatives, and likes and dislikes; they molded together with the perfect 45-minute circuit training workout.
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. –Bryan, Mike, and Bubba
