Ruben Cherres

Having had 10 years of experience in the fitness industry I decided it was time to open my own facility. One thing I noticed in the South Tampa area was the vast amount of people who love working out and staying in shape, however the choices of REAL gyms were few. Of course there are many “fitness centers” that offer you the same kind of equipment but with little variety and are more worried about making their location look “nice”.

When I opened Optimum Gym I knew right away the kind of equipment I wanted and the vast amount of variety that I needed not just to train my own clients but to offer our members more options for their style of training. One thing you will notice right away when you enter our gym is that I have collected some of the best equipment that was made during the past few years.  You will also probably see machines that you have never seen at any other gym.

My goal is to not just offer quality and variety of equipment, but also great customer services and to educate our members on how to properly workout to help them reach their own specific goals.  Stop by anytime and I will be more than happy to show you around. I promise you will not be disappointed!
