Our Story

Our StoryBody Balance Fitness, Massage, and Nutrition offers personal training, massage therapy, and nutrition coaching. Located in the heart of historic Pleasanton. Body Balance was founded 20 years ago by massage therapist and nutrition coach Kristi Reed and personal trainer John Perez. Both owners have always had a deep passion for wellness, as have the personal trainers and massage therapists who complete the Body Balance Team. With their unique, combined expertise in fitness, massage, and nutrition, John and Kristi have created the Body Balance community, where you can leave your busy life behind, and focus on developing your balanced and healthy lifestyle.

All Body Balance services are offered in a one-on-one, private, welcoming setting, assuring that each client’s individual needs and wants are met. At body balance, we follow an integrated approach to health and well-being. We believe that a healthy lifestyle isn’t just about hard workouts and dieting; it’s about finding balance.

Our approach is to look at the whole picture and encourage stress-management and health achieved through daily movement and stretching, eating a nutrient-rich diet full of whole foods, and dedicated moments throughout your day and week (even just a few minutes) for relaxation and reflection.

We are realistic about the process of maintaining health – we recognize that each one of us is on a unique personal journey. The Body Balance community strives to educate, motivate , and inspire you to reach your goals and achieve the balance and well-being you seek. This nurturing environment is one of our client’s value highly. This is reflected in how long they remain with us.

Recent studies show that the average time a client stays with a personal trainer and a massage therapist in the wellness industry is six to nine months. At Body Balance Fitness, Massage, and Nutrition, we are proud to share that the average stay is four-and-a-half years. We welcome you to join us and to come work with one of our expert personal trainers, massage therapists, or nutrition coaches – or all three! – because our passion is your well-being.
