I found that Lava for to be a great gym to go to for the two months I was living in San Diego on business. All my friends told me to go to 24 hour fitness but Lava was close to my house so I decided to get my membership there after my walk through and seen all the great equipment they have.

During a recent visit to San Diego, I had the opportunity to exercise at Lava on three different days. Each time the staff was welcoming, friendly, and knowledgeable. This is an amazing facility with upscale classes, equipment, and very experienced staff. The Spinning classes were challenging and fun..especially on the Kaiser bikes. The Club is especially well maintained, super clean, and beautifully laid out! We are way behind here in New Jersey !! I can't wait to return to San Diego !!! Great job Lava !!

Lava fitness has turned out to be a great experience. The membership costs seemed to be steep for a gym, but I found out that it pays itself off with so many different classes offered each week. Normally I would be paying $20-40 PER class session and when participate in a few classes per month, the cost can add up. This is why I enjoy having boxing, cycling, and all the other classes included in a one time monthly fee.

Lava in Point Loma is the best gym in San Diego!! The equipment is new, the people are friendly, and the classes are fun! It's the cleanest gym I've been to. And it never gets too crowded.

I've been a member at several gyms (24 Hour, Golds and Frogs) and this is my favorite. Sam's spin class is great and I love the Gravity, boxing and TRX classes which are included in your membership. I also love the high def TVs all around the gym, and the sauna and steam room.

I have two months to train for a major event and just had my first personal training session. It was an eye opener to see how much harder a trainer could push me than myself. I know I'm in good hands at Lava and need their collaboration and expertise to reach my goal. The staff is incredibly knowledgeable and while they're giving you the beat down of your life will still make it fun. They know what being in shape means, I guess I didn't have a clue until yesterday... It feels good to know that I have all the support and encouragement I need to take this as far as I can.

This is an immaculate , well thought out place to get your fitness on. The owner and trainers here are so helpful, PATIENT, and kind. I get alot of reassurance throughout the Kickboxing, Gravity, and Spinning class. This is not your typical yucky, car salesman gym, these people are here for you, to help you attain your goals, whip your a** into shape and they are your biggest cheerleaders! Everytime I walk through those doors I am greeted warmly by the front desk, this is always followed up with a nod from SAM, a follow up with Brody, and acknowlegement that I am here from all the trainers I can't say enough, THANKS GUYS!

I just joined today and all I can say is that the staff was incredible. I need to lose 60lbs. I did not feel out of place at all. I know I will be sore, they told me that I have to come in to train 3-4 times a week NO MATTER WHAT! They really took time with me and they really seemed to care about my well being and health. You will love the health club, I sure do! Thanks Lava Sport and Fitness.
I'm a native San Diegan, and I've always found it hard to find a gym that fits my lifestyle. This gym is the cleanest in town. The atmosphere is friendly and motivating. The staff takes the time to actually talk to you and help you out with health, fitness, and equipment questions. There's no other gym in town that matches Lava. They have it all: great staff, lots of diefferent classes to choose from, and excellent immenities.
