Kennedy Club Fitness Atascadero was the first of four club locations in San Luis Obispo County, California. Kevin and Barb Kennedy opened Kennedy Nautilus in 1981 with one life-cycle, twelve pieces of Nautilus equipment, and only a stereo for music. One move, three expansions, and a new brand – Kennedy Club Fitness is not just Nautilus anymore. With over 30,000 sq. ft. of strength and cardiovascular machines, group training and exercise studios, and a beautiful outdoor 50-meter pool complex, Kennedy Club Fitness engages, energizes, and inspires all members to reach their health and fitness goals. Kennedy Club Fitness serves the health and fitness needs of over 16,000 San Luis Obispo County residents. Kennedy Club Fitness is the only health club in the county with multiple locations: Paso Robles, Atascadero, San Luis Obispo, and Arroyo Grande.

Your membership includes a complimentary health and fitness assessment to evaluate your current fitness level, discuss your goals and pair you with the right personal trainer. A session may also include an In-Body scan (you are fully clothed) which will identify areas of strength, where you can improve and other functional feedback to direct your trainer’s focus. Our goal is to assist you in developing a safe, effective workout plan and to acquaint you with the varied strength-training and cardiovascular equipment. Call today to set your first orientation session at (805) 466-6775.


Members may need or desire further assistance or training beyond the fitness orientation session. Studies show that the ongoing utilization of a certified Personal Trainer can substantially increase your success. You may need the accountability of having a scheduled appointment to exercise regularly; you may be recovering from an injury, surgery or illness; you may have a sport-specific or lifestyle goal, or just need a couple of sessions to break out of a plateau. Whatever your need, we have a trainer for you.

Your Certified Personal Trainer will:

  • Design a unique and effective exercise program based upon your needs, goals, schedule and health history.
  • Take you step-by-step through each exercise, paying close attention to form and motivating you to work at your personal best.
  • Act as your personal coach, providing you with the incentive to get to the club on a regular basis; often one of the most challenging obstacles to overcome.

Personal Training options may include:

  • ½ Hour Sessions
  • One Hour Sessions
  • Partner Training (2 people)
  • Small Group Training (3-10 people)
