I’m very proud to announce the opening of the brand new Forest Vance Training Personal Training Studio in the Land Park area of Sacramento! It’s kind if crazy how things fell into place … if you believe in the law of attraction, you’ll love this story 🙂
When I finished my pro football career just over half a decade ago and started personal training, I just knew someday I would have my own studio. But I also knew the smart way to go would be to start at a big health club to learn the ropes … so my first job in the fitness industry was at good ‘ol 24 Hour Fitness. And it was a great start! I was a personal trainer and fitness manager at several different 24 Hour locations around the Sacramento area over a period of just over four years.
But as I mentioned, my ultimate goal has always been to have my own studio – and I knew the next logical step would be to go out on my own as an independent. So I left the gym and branched out at the end of 2008. Over the last two years, I’ve done personal and group training at Anytime Fitness in East Sac (which has been great), done boot camps outside and at other locations, etc.
Now, flash forward to about two months ago … business is great (thanks to all of you), and I’m thinking to myself, gosh, I really need to get my own space soon … my groups are getting too big for the little gym I’m renting space from in East Sac … and having my own studio is what I’ve been working towards all this time, after all!
So a space we were doing a boot camp at in the Land Park area – a karate studio on Riverside Blvd – unexpectedly came available for rent. A fantastic opportunity presented itself … and with amazing timing! So with the help of a personal training client (thanks Mike and Greg), we have a new space to call home – a 2000 sq foot personal training facility in the Land Park area of Sacramento!
Here’s a google map if you’d like to check out where it’s at:
And here’s a video I filmed of a group training class I had going there a couple months back .. it’s going to look pretty different, I’m in the process of painting and putting in new flooring, but it’ll give you an idea of the space and layout (it’s in the shots of the place with wood floor and big windows):
It’s a fantastic set up for group personal training … we’ll have open space to do a huge variety of body weight exercises, kettlebells, dumbbells, medicine balls, heavy ropes, sandbags, giant tractor tires, and all kinds of other fun stuff.
Group training classes and one-on-one training will continue as usual at Anytime Fitness in East Sac, FYI – I’m just going to hold about 10 group training session times per week in Land Park starting the week of Sept 20th (that’s a 95% sure start date).
The Special Offer
Everyone who pre-registers (signs up before I open the doors), will get two weeks of unlimited group personal training for $67. I’ll have group training classes 5-6 days per week, so you’ll be able to come and train ten times or so over the first two weeks if you want.
It’s an incredible deal – and I’m not big on specials if you know me – I’m just doing this deal to
A. Show my appreciation – this wouldn’t be possible without all my great clients and supporters
B. Open up the doors with the groups rocking and rolling from the get go!

The last thing I want to quickly say again is … thanks. I really, really appreciate all of you – my family, friends, clients – all my great supporters. Without you, all this wouldn’t be possible.
