I believe a person's attitude toward health and fitness is one of the most important elements when embracing a healthy lifestyle. Many people find numerous reasons why they cannot exercise...that is why I am here to show you no excuses exist for not exercising. I practice what I preach, so I lead by example to motivate my clients to push a little harder and dig a little deeper. The results: my clients find empowerment and embrace a healthier lifestyle. I believe my job is not done until my clients can create a healthy lifestyle on their own. "Be good to yourself - you deserve it!" I am involved in the community, serving as an Ambassador for the Chamber of Commerce the past 17 years and now as a member of the Board of Directors of the Chamber of Commerce. I am also a 15 year member of Benicia Soroptimist (an international club whose mission is to improve the lives of women and girls); I have served as the President and board member of the club.

David is a Doctor of Chiropractic, who brings to the studio a deep understanding of the human body and experience treating disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. His combination of expertise as a chiropractor and personal trainer brings a unique approach to his work at Griffin Fitness.
Joel Griffin started Griffin Fitness with partner Lisa McVeigh in Benicia, when they opened their doors on June 10, 2002 for the purpose of meeting the needs and wants that a traditional gym, box, or club could not offer. Joel shared his vast knowledge with his partner and was a highly successful and unique trainer. He helped to improve the lives and bodies of many clients he trained throughout the years. He worked with athletes of all ages in many sports and levels to help give them the edge they needed. He trained every type of individual, but was passionate in guiding young athletes to strive to be and do their best. He was a tough trainer and was not afraid to push his clients to empower them to their best. His motto was "if it's easy - it's not worth it". We all miss Joel and his sense of humor but he lives on in all of us through what he taught us.
