Member Spotlight: Base Fitness Club


Base Fitness Club is a private and semi-private training facility specifically designed to cater to the needs of busy business professionals who want to look and feel their best.

Base Fitness Club is not an open gym, does not offer memberships, and works by appointment only, giving clients the opportunity to focus on their results without worrying about intimidations or distractions. Base Fitness Club’s coaching method focuses on achieving optimum health by creating healthy habits within their client’s lifestyle. Whether you select a one on one or semi-private program, you will be assigned a qualified coach who will act as your advisor and dedicated program manager.

Charlotte Ochiqui, Vice President at the Neighborhood House Association and San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce member is a client at Base since June. She works with coach Vanessa Follador on a fitness program built around her demanding professional career. When Base asked Charlotte why she chose them, she stated, “I was looking for a fitness program that took into consideration my age, my fitness level, made accommodations for my past injuries and met the constraint of my work schedule. Base Fitness met all of my expectations. Vanessa is a great coach who modifies all exercise to your specific needs while maximizing your fitness goals! I highly recommend Base Fitness for anyone looking to have a tailor made fitness experience.”

Marcelo Nogueira is the founder of Base Fitness Club, located in Little Italy. Marcelo, having worked closely with successful business individuals, realized there was a void in the fitness industry for people who wanted to be fit and live a healthier life, but did not want to go to public gyms or join typical workout programs. Thus, he created Base Fitness Club — a premiere, fully consultative fitness facility.
