The year is 1996:
CHRISTOPHE AND CECILE, A HUSBAND/ WIFE DUO, OPENED THEIR FIRST TOADAL FITNESS LOCATION IN DOWNTOWN SANTA CRUZ, UNDER THE NAME “FROG FITNESS.” BEING FROM FRANCE, THEY THOUGHT THIS WOULD BE A FUNNY WAY OF PAYING HOMAGE TO THEIR COUNTRY OF ORIGIN.
In 1996, FROG FITNESS IN DOWNTOWN SANTA CRUZ CHANGES ITS NAME TO “TOADAL FITNESS.”
IN 1999, A FAMILY IS BORN! CHRISTOPHE AND CECILE OPENED THEIR SECOND CLUB IN LIVE OAK, EASTSIDE SANTA CRUZ
2004 THE HUSBAND/ WIFE DYNAMIC DUO ADOPT! ANOTHER CLUB WITH DEEP ROOTS IN THE COMMUNITY- CABRILLO FITNESS- JOIN THE TOADAL FITNESS FAMILY.
Cabrillo Fitness located in Aptos was built in 1978 by a group of local racquetball enthusiasts who had access to very few racquetball courts in the Santa Cruz county area. As the years have passed by, and the trends in fitness and exercise have evolved, so has the Cabrillo Fitness Club. In order to always meet the exercise needs of Santa Cruz county residents, we consistently add new equipment and implement new programs. It has been, and always will be our intention to provide a clean, relaxed and comfortable atmosphere, which is ideal for adults off all ages to identify, achieve and maintain their fitness goals.
WE NOW HAVE LOCATIONS ESTABLISHED IN APTOS, LIVE OAK, DOWNTOWN, SCOTTS VALLEY, AND ON THE WESTSIDE OF SANTA CRUZ. THE OWNERS CONTINUE TO BE DEEPLY INVOLVED IN DAY-TO-DAY CLUB OPERATIONS, AND CONTINUE TO PROUDLY SERVE THE GREATER SANTA CRUZ AREA IN ALL FIVE LOCATIONS. TOADAL FITNESS IS ALWAYS IMPROVING, GROWING, AND IN SEARCH OF WAYS TO BETTER SERVE THE COMMUNITY. STOP IN AND SAY HI. YOU COULD SAY YOU’VE VISITED A LITTLE PIECE OF SANTA CRUZ HISTORY.
