Chris Hitchko believes that people who show up always do the best. With that mantra in mind, Hitchko created the company Show Up Fitness in order to supply aspiring personal trainers with the top-notch education and training experience necessary to become successful.

Show Up Fitness is primarily a personal training program that offers internships. Within a four-month period, Show Up’s interns learn to become personal trainers through a mixture of classroom education, where they learn about anatomy, physiology, and nutrition; and teaching experience, where they learn the business of training.

Having had years of experience training personal trainers before starting Show Up, Hitchko worked with many who had trouble helping their clients achieve their fitness goals.

“I kept repeating to them the words ‘show up,’” Hitchko remembers telling the trainers. “The ones who show up are the most consistent.” 

Show Up Fitness’ internship also emphasizes a strong, foundational education for its trainers. “We are redefining the industry by educating trainers and making them as competent as possible,” says Hitchko.

Hitchko founded the first Show Up Fitness location eight years ago in the Bay Area. The company then opened multiple locations in Los Angeles. Show Up’s new La Jolla location is the company’s first personal training school in San Diego. Hitchko has hopes of opening more gyms in the greater San Diego area in the future.

In addition to providing education for fitness professionals, Show Up also offers personal training sessions with students at a reduced rate. 

Hitchko notes that Show Up’s private personal training facility caters to the individual and the individual’s fitness goals.

“Show Up Fitness is an individual-based personal training company. Whatever your goals are, we will help you get there. Whether you want a nice, flat tummy or a big chest and big arms, we will take care of you. We are success based, and 90% of success is showing up. If you show up, we will take care of the rest.” 

Show Up Fitness’ grand opening is on Sunday, Sept. 1, and the personal training internship starts Tuesday, Sept. 10. Show Up Fitness is located at 1020 Prospect St., Suite CU-1(B). To learn more, visit or follow @showupfitness on social media.
