Marco & Maggi Gonzalez - Owners

Maggi and I grew up in Valley Center and graduated from Valley Center High School in 2001. After our marriage on June 1, 2002, we moved to Hawaii to start our journey together. While in Hawaii, I honorably served in the U.S. Army for 5 years, while Maggi earned her BSN at Hawaii Pacific University. In 2007, we moved back to the mainland, and both chose careers as public servants. After attending Palomar College and playing football for the Commits in 2009, I became a firefighter for Rincon Fire Department and Maggi was hired as an RN for Palomar Hospital where she worked there for 15 years and now currently works at Kaiser as a labor and delivery nurse. At the end of 2017, I served our teenage youth as the Oak Glen High School campus security guard and weightlifting coach. In March of 2020, we were offered an opportunity to serve our community and became owners of Valley Center Fitness. We were unaware that 8 days later after purchasing the gym, we would have to close our doors for 3 months due to Covid, but it was a blessing in disguise. That time allowed us to create a new culture and environment that our members know and enjoy to this day.

We have two amazing teenagers, Kaila and Daine. As a family, we enjoy camping, being a part of our children’s athletic development, and taking care of our chickens and dogs. As the proud owners of Valley Center Fitness, Maggi and I are committed to serving the community by providing a safe place to improve personal fitness, health, and wellness. We look forward to serving you and helping you reach your fitness goals and needs.
