What You Should Know About RX Fitness Equipment
Statistics show that roughly two-thirds of Americans are overweight or obese. That rather startling number has created a country that is out of shape and in dire need of help to reverse the trend. A regular exercise routine is one way to make that happen, but in order to get the body you want and deserve, you need the very best equipment available. That is exactly what we are here to provide.
Meet the RX
Tim and Darci Adams conceived RX Fitness Equipment as a collaborative effort amongst health and fitness professionals with the goal of getting as many people as possible back in shape, one person at a time. More than 1,700 therapists, personal trainers, chiropractors, nutritionists, doctors, and health experts have come together to create the foundation upon which RX Fitness Equipment is built. We are hoping that what started as a mission in a small retail location in Thousand Oaks, California will become a full-blown regional effort to educate people on the importance of fitness and exercise. This website is simply one step on the road to a much loftier goal.
The RX Fitness philosophy is about much more than being a sales leader in the fitness equipment industry. It is also about encouraging those who purchase the equipment and providing them with the help and support they need to reach their weight loss and fitness goals. In an effort to help as many people as possible, we deliver quality equipment to gyms, personal trainers, physical therapy providers, and just about every type of health and fitness facility that you can imagine. But, we’re also here to serve the needs of those in search of the single perfect piece of home exercise equipment, or an entire home gym. The more people who have access to fitness equipment, the sooner we can begin to turn around the obesity problem that is rampant in this country.
Charles Hoffman grew up locally in Anaheim Hills, attending El Rancho Jr. High and Canyon High School, directly across the street from our Anaheim Hills location. After completing high school, Charles joined the U.S. Marine Corps. Charles believed the Marines would afford an opportunity to make a difference in the world and improve lives in the event he was ever deployed. Charles served during the Persian Gulf War, in both capacities of Security Forces and Infantry Marine. After the Marine Corps, Charles worked in Finland for two years before returning to the states, where he continued his education while concurrently working as an auditor in the grocery industry for 8 years.
Charles had accumulated a wealth of life experience, a strong affinity for fitness, and a sincere desire to help others achieve their goals and improve their lives. In 2005, this prompted him to follow his passion – selling high end fitness equipment.
He enjoys spending time with his wife Merlyn and their 3 boys, or playing with his beloved English Bulldog Chesty. Charles also follows his passion of hiking and climbing as often as possible, exploring our local hills and mountains.
Joey Snyder‘s love for athletics and fitness started in high school where he participated on both the varsity cross-country and track teams. In 2005 he graduated with a B.S. Degree in Kinesiology (Exercise Science) from Cal State Northridge and went on to work in health and fitness development and research a variety of training methods. Joey founded his own training business in the fall of 2009 where he has since helped coach and train the Westlake High Cross Country and Track teams. He now spends much of his time working as a Cardiovascular Specialist at the Moorpark Athletic Club and co-managing the Future Track Running Center, a fitness pillar in our community.
After having been a customer of ours for over 6 years, we invited Joey to join us as a sales associate, where he will use his considerable knowledge and skills to serve our clientele. RX Fitness is fortunate to add him to our staff, and our customers will appreciate his dedication to our mission to help you find the equipment you need, not the equipment we need to sell. Please welcome Joey Snyder to RX Fitness Equipment.
