About Ascend Fitness

Welcome, we are excited that you are here. Ascend Fitness was founded in 2020 by four great friends Don and Stephanie Bailey & JC and Celena Phelan. Our families met through our children playing Tot Tee Ball years ago and we've been great friend since. Over the years we have all had our own fitness routines and after much discussion realized we had the same desire. Bring a fun, exciting and inclusive feel to fitness in the Lodi area. So here we are several years later making our dream come true. We are excited to meet each and everyone of you.
