I have a guilty pleasure for health clubs because they tend to be luxurious even when you sweat. Tru Fit Athletic Club molded right into that idea with its comfortable massage chairs and private showers.

When I arrived at Tru Fit, the first thing I did was talk to the front desk to get a few class recommendations. Lucky for me, Nikki told me the kickboxing class was going to start in 5 minutes and she highly recommended it. her suggestion was spot on! I had the best time and best workout kickboxing! Every “round” had different combinations to try and different equipment to use making every moment more exciting than the next. I loved every minute of my time there and can’t wait to go back the next time I’m in San Antonio!
