Thanks to our many sponsors featured in this guide and for encouraging Jacksonville families in their fitness journeys.
Fitness Guide Jacksonville

Being active and staying healthy can be a challenge for busy families. We have put together the best spots for fitness and wellness in Jacksonville to encourage and educate families that when it comes to staying on the right track for health and nutrition in real-life scenarios and taking care of ourselves as a whole, it can be easy! Whether you are looking for personal training, group and specialty classes, gyms with in-house childcare, fitness classes where you can bring your baby, an outdoor activity the whole family can enjoy, or guidance for health and nutrition, there’s something for everyone!

TitanUp Fitness

In an industry full of over-complicated workouts and misinformation, TitanUp Fitness goes above and beyond to make fitness sustainable. For TUF, their job doesn’t end at just providing a good workout program. They teach you the what and the why behind their programming so you gain a strong understanding of proper form and technique.

The TUF workout program is designed for all levels — trainers teach you the keys to strength training, consistency, progressive overload, and building sustainable habits outside of the gym. And, our trainers are not only educated in techniques, they’re also highly skilled at knowing the right way to push you to reach your goals.

TUF also knows one of the biggest benefits of group fitness is the GROUP! All workouts are designed using a pod rotation system that allows you to build friendships and connections with those in your pod. Not only will you build new connections, but this helps keep you accountable — your group will wonder where you are if you miss class.

All three locations — Jacksonville Beach, Gate Parkway, and Nocatee — offer a wide range of class times to suit your needs. Come join the no. 1 fitness community in Jacksonville and see what it means to be part of the TitanUp FitFam!

Why Jacksonville Mom Loves MBody Yoga

“I started yoga in 2012 as a college student. Played sports my whole life and what led me to beginning a yoga practice was chronic back/leg pain from too many soccer games. After my first class, I never wanted to go back. However, the relief in my body I experienced after the first few classes is what led me to continue building a yoga practice. I was very surprised by the way yoga strengthens your body while it lengthens your muscles, and it was exactly what my body needed. The breathing piece of the practice has been immensely helpful when it comes to dealing with anxiety as well. The community at MBody yoga is what keeps me at this studio specifically. I never wanted to meet people when I walked through the doors, and I have been humbled by the way the MBody yoga community has walked with me through some very intense life changes, including becoming a mom! I walked in with back/leg pain, and I left pain-free with friends! I am so thankful to have been able to spend the last 11 years at MBody Yoga and am very grateful for this community.” –Hayley Pritchett

Why Jacksonville Mom Loves Fit Enough

“As a busy mom of three, I knew I needed to stay active to keep up my energy and also set a great example for my kids! I’ve tried working out on my own, but it’s so confusing trying to figure out what works best on which days. Hiring Dominique from Fit Enough was the best thing I’ve done for myself. She holds me accountable, which is what I love the most! Each week is something new, this helps me from getting bored. Also, she is a mom herself & is so relatable to REAL life! She just gets it & creates a routine for me based on her expertise on what busy mamas need. Highly recommend Dominique!!”

Why Jacksonville Mom Loves Coastal Mobile Medical Care

“Coastal Mobile Medical is the best new thing in Jacksonville! My son and I were both sick so the last thing I wanted to do was drag both of us to the doctor. CMM to the rescue! Robyn came right to our house and was excellent! They were timely, professional, and thorough. They had every testing option that we would have gotten at a walk-in clinic and we never had to get in the car. Jarica even came back the next day to re-check my son to ensure he was still on the mend! I can not rave enough about the standard of care that we received, and we were able to stay comfortable in our own house. I absolutely will continue to use them and recommend them to anyone anytime!”  –Amber Sherrill

Born and raised in the Aloha state and a traveling gypsy at heart, Chantel left the nest fresh out of high school and headed off for college in sunny Southern California. Almost a decade later she met and fell madly in love with her hubby who whisked her off to the great Midwest. After five brutal winters in Nebraska, Chantel realized that home will always be where the ocean is (and the snow isn’t), so off to Jacksonville they went, where this Hawaiian girl now spends her days as a stay-at-home wrangler to her two baby bears. Prior to becoming a household CEO, she joyfully spent her time as the Program Assistant Director of a preschool. Digging deep into wellness and health is her jam alongside spontaneous dance parties with her kiddos are what sing to her soul. Chantel is wildly passionate about advocating for her son, who lives with multiple severe food allergies. You can find her out and about on a daily basis as she is a self-proclaimed busy body and loves hitting up the beach or exploring new spots in town while homeschooling her kiddos. If you ever see this fast-paced mama on the go, be sure to say hi because she is always up for meeting new people and making new friends!
