Your San Rafael Health and Fitness Guide

One of the great things about living in San Rafael is that you have complete access to a variety of professional health care options. In San Rafael, you will find a range of doctors, dentists, specialists, plastic surgeons and clinics. These professionals can provide you with day-to-day health care management as well as emergency services.

But as an added precaution, San Rafael caters to preventative well-being measures. The city is home to a number of unique spas meant for pampering and physical care.  And, as part of that pampering system, San Rafael also offers numerous health clubs and fitness centers to help you maintain your body’s fitness needs.


There are around 20 fitness clubs in San Rafael that range from full service fitness to yoga, and they may include specialized programs such as pilates. Many clubs offer programs that are tailored to their clients’ lifestyles, including classes that are directed towards children, teens, adults, and seniors. In addition to the classes, exercise machines, free swimming, and team leagues are also widely available.

For fitness buffs and others who are looking to get into a workout schedule, the services of personal trainers are available upon enrollment. Personal trainers are professionally trained to advise on nutrition, weight loss, muscle building, and a variety of specialized recreational fields. They can help coordinate a healthy exercise regimen that incorporates nutritional and dietary needs, as well as provide the motivation to keep a workout going. They can also help to moderate your fitness regimen so you don’t get injured.

Sports Massage

Other specialists that are commonly affiliated with gyms and fitness centers are massage therapists and sports instructors. For those who have overdone their workout or just have sore muscles, a sports massage is ideal for rubbing out the aches and pains. Or, if you’re looking to sharpen your tennis game, you can also receive customized clinics from professional tennis coaches.


Gyms and clubs can vary in size and ambience. Large fitness clubs are more suited for people who enjoy meeting new friends who share a common interest such as fitness. It is common for large clubs to have mixers, social events, and offer additional facilities such as snack bars or conference rooms.  Memberships tend to be on the inexpensive side.

The mid-sized gym facilities are normally more informal and do not have as many off-site social activities prevalent in larger gyms. Finally, the smaller boutique fitness clubs are intimate clubs that are geared to offer members privacy and customized services in small groups.

Keeping fit is a key part of staying physically and mentally healthy. For some, a combination of using fitness clubs, gyms, and an outdoor sport gives their workout routine the variety to keep them engaged. It is sometimes hard to keep a rigorous workout schedule, but being consistent and working it into a weekly routine makes it easier to take time for yourself and feel great.

Give yourself the opportunity to utilize the services that San Rafael offers and take advantage of its fitness centers.
