The Fitnessgarage Sports Academy offers massage therapy and performance training focusing on core strength for youth and adult athletes. Their core training program emphasizes healthful lifestyle, strength training, sports conditioning, flexibility and agility. Core strength focuses on strengthening the abdominals, back, hamstrings and hip flexors to provide better flexibility, strength and long, lean musculature. Unlike most gyms, there is no initiation fee, nor will you find state of the art specialized exercise equipment — the focus of this facility is on fitness training rather than body building. Private and group lessons are available for youth and adults.

The Fitnessgarage hosts a variety of classes and services to tailor to your needs (see their classes schedule). Their program incorporates what we call CORE-Training, a process that includes Performance Training, and Tutoring.

Most of the classes are $10 per 1-hour session, and you can get a punch card for 5 classes for $45. Classes tend to be fairly small with quite a bit of personal attention. Hideshi is easily able to work around different needs—for example, Hideshi has combined shoulder with lower back and core exercises during the Friday morning lower back class, and has indicated that if someone who needs to work on the lower back drops by one of the shoulder classes, he can easily incorporate it into that hour.

The owner, Hideshi Okamoto, and many of his staff have a track & field background. Okamoto is a coach for the Japanese Olympic track and field team, a Japanese track sports commentator, a board member of the National Association of Speed and Explosion and a certified massage therapist.

Core and Balance

These classes are designed to focus on improving one's balance.By focusing on balance, we are able to strengthen our smaller stabilizer muscle, which limit your joint movement while helping the bigger muscles (ones that do the lifting) to complete the body's movement.Balance exercises improve one's range of motion (joint mobilization and muscle stiffness) which decreases and as we age.

Each class is $10/session Mon. 8:30-9:30 am Tue. 6:00-7:00 am / 8:15-9:45 am Wed. 8:00-9:00 am Thu. 6:00-7:00 am / 8:15-9:45 am

Saturday Morning Hard-Core

One of the most fascinating muscle groups in your body, YOUR CORE. Also referred to as your "power house". We are firm believers that one is only as strong as his or her core. The core include your front abs (rectus abdominis), side abs (obliques), lower back, and inner thigh muscles. While all our classes do include at least ten minutes devoted to this area, it is the fastest recovering area of your body hence the hour and a half session. Please do not feel as though you need to stay the entire 90 minutes! This is more of a rotating class where you can come in anytime, perferrably before 9:30 and stay for an hour or as long as you like.

Each class is $10/session Sat. 9:00-10:30 am

Youth Class

Our youth classes focus on developing the core through a series of exercises based on balance, speed, agility,coordination and 'Strength'. Open to all ages(7-17), all abilities, and all sports. *Call about a group pricing plan. Office (530) 297-1736, Cell (530) 219-3807

2011-01-18 14:04:14   Hideshi has been my neighbor and friend for several years. Several times he has fixed bad shoulder pain with his massage and manipulations. He does excellent work. —JimStewart

2011-05-27 09:59:52   I just got back from the 1-hour lower back injury prevention class, having experienced intermittent lower back trouble for years. Hideshi was fantastic, and it's a really nice setup there. The place is back in the corner of the parking lot, not really visible from the street, but it's not that hard to find. There's no big gym equipment there; the training is dynamic and constantly active. If you're looking to bulk up, this isn't the place to do it. There are no memberships. Each class you take is $10, and if they recognize you, you're welcome to drop in at other times of the day and use the equipment.

I'm somewhat out of shape because of a recent injury, but not too bad. The exercises were fairly low intensity, but constant. I left with my quads and hamstrings quite tired and slightly shaky, my hip flexors, lower back, and abs all feeling well worked, and my upper back, shoulders, tris, and bis all feeling pleasantly tired. I don't know whether I'll be able to work it into my work schedule, but I'd love to go back as frequently as possible. I'm also looking forward to trying out the Tuesday/Thursday core and balance class.

I should also note that Hideshi himself is awesome. Extremely friendly and engaging and a great instructor. —TomGarberson

The fitness garage is nestled away in East Davis, but Hideshi is worth every penny and then some Daubert
