I trained with Ocean Fitness trainer, Mike, a while ago at a large high-end corporate gym chain and it was great. After taking six months off, I contacted Mike to see if he was available to start training me again and he told me that he had starting working at a studio in Manhattan Beach and he invited me to check it out. I got scheduled in immediately and I went to Ocean Fitness the next day. I could not believe that a gym like Ocean Fitness existed...I had my same great trainer, using all of the same equipment as the other gym, listening to my favorite playlist pump through the sound system and enjoying ocean views and cool sea breezes during water breaks. I had been paying $110.00/hr at our old gym and I couldn't imagine how much more it would probably cost me to train in this private gym all by myself that is perched atop a hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean on a regular basis. $65/hr was the going rate and would cost even less for larger session packages. If you live in the South Bay and are interested in real private training, without the crowds or inflated prices of a sales driven corporate gyms, you must check this place out.

I've been working out with Margaret for about 1 1/2 years and am thrilled with her flexibility, motivational support, and personal attention. She helped me adjust my workouts for my pregnancy and post-partum recovery. I bounced back into shape much faster than I ever imagined. I'd highly recommend this intimate, personal gym to anyone in the South Bay.

Margaret Gumbrecht runs a superb personal training center in Manhattan Beach, CA. She knows her exercises being a former Olympian in gymnastics for the Netherlands. She takes the time to get to know each individual and their particular needs. She pays attention to the details by logging each work-out to gauge improvement and weaknesses, and creating the right program for each client. And she has an excellent support staff, especially in trainer Julie.

Wonderful place to work out, lose weight, gain strength, help cardio and spend time with a passionate, friendly staff.

I worked out at Ocean Fitness with Julie for about six months and I loved it. Julie is a great trainer which made it easy to want to work out. I always looked forward to seeing her. I would highly recommend Ocean Fitness and Julie. It is a convenient location for anyone that lives in the South Bay area and the small size of the location makes for a very personable atmosphere. I would highly recommed Ocen Fitness for anyone that wants one-on-one attention and a staff of trainers that are professional, know what they're doing, and really care about you and your fitness goals.

Ocean Fitness is small but effective. It is in a great location and easy to walk to if you live in Manhattan Beach. Personal Training sessions are never crowded, you and your trainer will usually have the gym to yourself, and since you are right next to the beach it is fun to incorporate outdoor lunges, etc. while looking at the ocean! They also offer a great Boot Camp class taught by trainer Caitlin Bronsky which I highly reccomend.

I worked out with Margaret at Ocean Fitness for two years. I have always had trouble excercising, but she was such a great trainer that I got into shape quickly. The gym itself was clean and had all the equiptment you needed for a great, comprehensive workout. Everyone at Ocean Fitness was flexible and the prices were great. I've moved from LA back to the east coast and I can't find a place like Ocean Fitness anywhere around here. I miss it.

I've never considered my body as much more than a support for my head, so when my daughters insisted I start getting exercise, I resisted... It's three years later, they've moved from Manhattan Beach, and I'm still commuting there from Long Beach!) to work out with Margaret at Ocean Fitness! I can't say I've learned to love exercise, but I can say that she has been a good "fit" for me; I've enjoyed our sessions, she makes me laugh, I've firmed up (if not slimmed down - which would be my fault, not hers!), I'm healthier, my aches and pains have disappeared... She has never made me feel guilty because I'm not a "jock" - she meets me where I am and then pushes me a little. The focus has been on health and fitness, not on youth (good thing, since I'm 65!) and athletic prowess. I like that the gym is small and private - I don't have to be there with lots of other people. I like that it feel like an intimate experience. I feel cared for. I won't go so far as to say it's "great good fun!" but I will say it has been very beneficial, and I value it; perhaps one day I'll even learn to love exercise - and if I do, it will be because of Margaret!

There are not many gyms that you can workout and look out over the ocean. This one has all the basic weights and fitness machines you could want, as well as rooms for pilates, yoga, aerobics, and whatever else they come up with. The instructors are experienced and make exercise fun. I recommend you check them out.

PROS: experienced, ocean view
CONS: only one of them
