Talk about a Transformation Tuesday 😍
Here are some before and after photos of our brand new Hilltop Club. From the early stages of construction to the week before opening. Just a few more finishing touches until we can open our doors and continue serving our amazing Rio Rancho community.

Merry Fitmas and happy holidays from our Defined Fitness family to yours!


Thank you so much for voting us as the best health club of the city in 2022. It is because of our amazing members, and outstanding community that we are New Mexico's #1 gym for 34 years. It's the BEST way to end such an epic year and we could not have done it without you Albuquerque. We can't wait to continue providing the best in health and fitness in 2023!


Getting started is the most important part. Don't wait until the perfect time because it may never come. Start chasing your goals today. Have an incredible week everyone!


It's time to see how balanced your strength is. This week's fitness challenge is demonstrated by Lauren, a Personal Trainer from our Mesa Club. If you can do a deadlift, curl, clean, shoulder press, and squat with at least 65lbs, then you have successfully completed the challenge. We encourage you to tag us in your attempts to be featured on our story!

We are halfway through our Holiday Food Drive! We are so grateful to see how fast the bins have been filling up at our clubs. Our incredible community has stepped up to help feed local families and we aren't done yet. The bins have been replaced as of yesterday and there is still one week left to donate to this amazing cause. A huge thank you to SFPD for their contribution at our Capital Club, and to all our members who have been participating as well.


Happy Monday! We know this time of year can get a little hectic but we got your back. Come in for a great workout to give your mind and body what they need to take on your week.

This week's story is by Hanna from our Bosque Club, who has used personal training as a way to maintain balance between school and fitness.

"I’ve always been interested in health and fitness. When I started college to pursue a degree in Nursing, I needed to incorporate time for myself to make sure I stayed active. I’ve always had an idea on how to improve my fitness, I just wasn’t sure where to start. I moved about a year and a half ago, which made me become interested in the Bosque location and that's how I was introduced to personal training and met Jordan Merrill, who I have been training with for over a year now. Not only have I made big improvements in the gym but in my diet too. I lost over 20 lbs when I first started. Personal training has given me the confidence and motivation to stay on track. Jordan is knowledgeable, patient, and energetic. Because of Jordan I feel like I am able to progress to the next level and never feel like I have plateaued in my journey. It can be really difficult to make time outside of my college schedule, and I’m happy I have found a good balance. I know we’re both excited to see what’s next within the coming years"


How many Mondays have come and gone since you said "I'll start next week." Take action and start today!


We have a core burner for you in this week's fitness challenge demonstrated by Amara and Geo from our Rio Club. Grab a partner and see how well you can lean to the beat! Join the challenge by tagging us in your video!

In the spirit of Giving Tuesday, we are proud to announce that Defined Fitness is partnering with The Storehouse of New Mexico to host a food drive to help local families during this holiday season. Starting now through December 20th, we invite you to bring non-perishable food items to your Defined Fitness club to help families in our community.


Happy Cyber Monday! Let's start this week with a new perspective. Whatever obstacles you may be facing, remember that they are not permanent.


Choosing a gym is an important step in your fitness journey. Instead of telling you why our clubs stand out from the rest, we thought it would be best if you heard it from our members themselves. Get started today during our Black Friday promotion!


At Defined Fitness we love to give thanks every day by having an Attitude of Gratitude. We hope everyone has a fun and safe Holiday!


This is your Monday reminder that you can handle whatever this week throws at you! We hope you have a fantastic week


We have a Fitness Challenge Friday for you all today This challenge is demonstrated by Caleb from our Bosque club, and the objective is to hold at least 4 plates in your arms, but Bosque set the bar at 5 plates. Who can top that? Be sure to tag us in your attempts for a chance to be featured on our story. And lastly PLEASE BE CAUTIOUS AND SAFE when trying this challenge. Make sure you have a spotter and are kind to the weights. Good luck everyone!


Team Training has officially been rolled out at our Capital Club and our free trial members are LOVING IT. It is a group workout like you've never seen before. Capital Club members can start their free trial at the front desk today!


It's a new week and another opportunity to crush your goals. Consistency is key. We hope you all have a great week!

This week's story is about a dedicated client who had results so good it brought her to tears. Here is what Cacia from our Sandia club had to say;
"I’ve always enjoyed working out and being athletic my whole life, and been a member of Defined for 15 years. Having four kids slowed me down a lot and I became less active. My Fiance got very sick last year, and we thought we were going to lose him. It wasn’t until he barley made it through it that we decided to finally get married after 16 years of being together. As soon as he was out of the hospital we set a date and so I decided I needed to get in shape to look great in my wedding dress. I started at 180 lbs and hadn’t worked out since COVID happened. I got set up with Sydney for 30 minute sessions and it was very easy to get along with her. She reminded me of my daughter and we laughed a lot during our sessions. She helped me get my eating habits on a much better track and she was always available to me whenever I needed her. At my final weigh in I was 156 lbs. So I lost over 20 lbs and when I tried on my wedding dresses I cried tears of joy because of how beautiful I felt."


It's Monday. Let the gains begin.
Here are some encouraging words to start your week off right!


Our red and white letters have never looked better! We are stamping our name on the building and it is getting more and more real! We are so excited to open our new Hilltop Club this December! We want to thank our awesome members for being patient as we navigate through unforeseen construction delays. Rest assured this beautiful club will be worth the wait! Our doors will be open before you know it!


Feliz Dia De Los Mu***os! Today is a celebration of life and we believe that fitness is the key to a long and healthy one. We are here to support you every step of the way as you enjoy this festive day.


Thank you New Mexico for 34 years. As our anniversary month comes to an end we wanted to celebrate by sharing some highlights that commemorate our team and our amazing members. We look forward to many more years of serving the community as New Mexico’s #1 gym. We are serious about fitness and we are just warming up!


Defiend Fitness Origins: Rio Club
Last but certainly not least, we have our Rio Club! Though it opened in October 2021, we actually owned the property it's built on for 15 years! It was a long anticipated opening that was worth the wait. It is our most recent club, and includes all of our updated designs, including a hot tub, our brand statement wall graphic, and a beautiful view of the Sandias. This club has a great culture and a bright future ahead.
Thank you for making us New Mexico's #1 gym for 34 years.


Defined Fitness Origins: Capital Club

Proudly representing us in Santa Fe is our Capital Club. Previously being a Natural Grocers Supermarket, this location opened on July 10th, 2020. We were faced with many challenges when opening this club due to the Pandemic. We had to shut down our Pre- Sale during the early stages of business closures. Unfortunately many businesses were forced to close their doors. our resilient team however, persevered. Construction was able to safely continue, allowing us to open our doors when restrictions were lifted. Many people may not know, but the City of Santa Fe has very specific building regulations when it comes to the outside colors of a business. We were able to work with the city, and got the green light to paint the outside of the building our signature Grey and White, allowing us to stand out on Cerrillos Road. This club has all of our updated design, as well as our largest outdoor workout space. A great new addition was that the workout yard connects to the pool area! Even with the economic and environmental challenges at the beginning, this club continues to be one of our most successful locations to date.


Defined Fitness Origins: Mesa Club
Serving the Southwest side of Albuquerque is our Mesa Club. This location was one of our new builds in 2019. Mesa was the first club to feature the new brand elements including a revised Defined Fitness logo, wall graphics, club layout and design. An exciting addition was the outdoor turf workout space we call "The Yard." Mesa was a highly anticipated new club that hit the ground running and has been thriving ever since!


Representing Defined Fitness in the four corners region is Farmington! Previously an Albertsons, this club opened in 2009 and was the first and only club to open outside of the Albuquerque - Rio Rancho area! Interesting story about this location is that a few years ago, Dwayne the Rock Johnson and Kevin Hart were spotted working out here while they were in town for a movie shoot! Farmington continues to be the sole face of Defined Fitness in Northern NM


Defined Fitness Origins: Bosque Club

Next up is our Bosque club (Which was originally called Riverside.) In the early 2000s this club was built to replace a previous location at the Taylor Ranch Strip Mall just down the road! One of the coolest aspects of this club is the "arena" style layout where the cardio deck is elevated and looking out at the main weight training floor. Members of this club have been very loyal over the years and it remains one of our busiest locations, with great staff, and a solid fitness culture

CONGRATULATIONS to the September We got your Back app challenge winner Hollie, for logging 20 workouts at our Rio club, and winning a Lululemon Wanderlust Backpack and a $100 gift card! We can't wait to see you in your new Lulu gear at our gyms! Happy shopping and great job!


Defined Fitness Origins: Hilltop Club

Our next location we're highlighting for our Anniversary month is our Hilltop Club! Built from the ground up in 1998, this was our first club built in a new city which was very exciting for our team and members in the Rio Rancho community. During this time, Intel had a small Defined Fitness gym inside their complex! So they were excited for this new location. Hilltop was a huge part of our history and will soon be replaced by our NEWEST location, by the same name, opening in November!

This week we have Linda from Hilltop, who has always tried to stay healthy and fit her whole life. She and her trainer Aaron have made a ton of progress. Read on to learn about Linda's impressive feats of strength!
"It has been almost a year and a half since I began training with Aaron. He took the time to understand what I wanted to accomplish and to explain how the body is built to move. After only a few 30 minute sessions, I wanted to train for an hour twice a week. We have focused on strength and mobility. He watches each body movement making corrections to keep my form in the proper position which helps minimize the chance of any injury and getting overly fatigued. If I have strained muscles during any activities, I know I can still have a training session with Aaron. He will quickly adapt the session to help the mending process and I always leave feeling better. I have been able to achieve a 50% skeletal muscle mass and have learned better ways to move my body during daily activities. I have never felt better and have never been stronger. I can do 3 sets of 20 pushups, and body weight pull-ups. My current goal is to do 5 pushups with 40lbs on my back. I have had many trainers in my life but Aaron is the best trainer that I have had. "


Defined Fitness Origins: Sandia Club
Our second longest standing club is our Sandia location on Juan Tabo. It used to be a night club called Grand Central Station. As well as a restaurant on the south end of the building. After a Realtor took over the north end , there was an epic rainstorm that collapsed the roof! Shortly after, We rebuilt and took over the whole place! It remains our biggest location, and one of the biggest gyms in New Mexico


Defined Fitness Origins: Metro Club
All month long we will be posting about each club that we have opened in our legendary 34 years in business.
Metro is our first club. Having opened in 1988 originally part of a nursery school called "Bright Beginnings" off of Spain and Eubank, it moved a few years later around 1992 just down the road to San Mateo and McLeod and has been thriving ever since! Our members still love working out here and our team is proud to be a part of our most established location!
Stay tuned for more club origins throughout our Anniversary month

Today we have a great story of someone who's PT experience was so good she wants to provide that kind of experience to others. Here is what Rhonda had to say;
"I came into the gym interested in working with a personal trainer after having knee surgery in 2019 and falling into some bad habits and choices during COVID and needed to get back on a plan and build some strength up in my knee. I know that at my age, staying fit and healthy is important and I need to keep myself moving. From my training I am now enjoying more energy, better sleep and even weight loss! Since working with Rebecca, I have lost 25 pounds and 6% of my body fat. My endurance and flexibility is much better. Training with Rebecca at the Hilltop location has truly impacted my life. Once I began to see results, I thought that I too could make an impact in people’s lives, so I began studying to become a Certified Personal Trainer. I really want to help people who think we are too old, or we are too out of shape to get back in the gym. We all want to be able to enjoy our grandkids or just get out and enjoy being able to move."


Starting today, and for a limited time only, all Defined Fitness members can bring a friend to workout for FREE. Working out with a friend is always more fun. Promotion ends on 9/30.


Fall BACK into fitness!
Happy first day of fall! We want to encourage you to continue pursuing all your fitness goals as we enter this new season! Join now for $5.05 for the rest of this month!
