Our Team

Ralphie Martinez started a garage gym back in 2013 in hopes to help some friends and family get a little healthier. That hope turned into a dream, that dream into a reality when the jump was made from a dusty garage gym to a physical location in October 2015. At Martinez Elite Fitness we have a community, a team, a bond of athletes that hold each other accountable. If you do not make a class time at the gym you get a text, an email, a phone call asking how you are and if everything is ok. We may be lead by one coach/trainer but together we all help one another day in and day out.

Our methodology at Martinez Elite Fitness is simple, move functionally. We take 45-60 minutes and mash up movements you can use outside the walls to move better, and more confident.Our gym program is tailored for weight loss and strength gains, as well as endurance building. 

Our journey began in a garage gym in 2013, we built a community and a program for 1 1/2 years there that has transformed and changed lives. We built this gym from the ground up and that’s what we plan to do with you.

We hold classes at our Downtown Martinez location.
We are located on the walkway between Ward St and Main St behind Starbucks.
