Weight Control

We are all too familiar with this one. Weight control is one of the most common struggles in the world today! You are not alone. We can help. High-intensity interval training (also called: HIIT) is a type of workout known for weight loss. Ask our coaches for more detailed advice regarding your needs.

Time Management

“I don’t have time to work out” Sounds familiar? That is a common excuse your brain makes up to keep you from accomplishing something difficult. We help you to achieve new healthy habits. The rewards are more energy, less stress, and a positive feeling of well-being throughout the day.


Be part of our local club and team. Desert Shield Fitness is a community of like-minded, motivated people. Join us and incorporate active outdoor and indoor life into your daily life.

Gym Fees

Gym fees can be expensive! But not as expensive as self-doubt and low self-esteem. Sign up for a free trial to see what makes us worth it! We conduct both outdoor classes and indoor classes. Our members can also use the large, airy cruise terminal as a facility for running indoors during the hot season. We can help you. Be Race Ready!
