Ray Ulibarri, Trainer/Owner
Progression Fitness was started because of a desire to help people change their lives through fitness. We have a passion for fitness and healthy living. Each training session is custom tailored to you, your fitness level and your personal goals. We don't put you through a one size fits all Fitness Orientation or run you through a standardized introductory program that most gyms require. Your workouts are designed for you!
Absolute Personal Fitness and Powered By You Fitness facilities are equipped with the newest and most up to date exercise equipment and machines. You will be amazed by the quality and care that was put into the equipment, design, and layout of these locations. Our gyms are equipped with everything from cardio equipment to free weights all the way to a TRX suspension system, kettle bells, and tactical equipment. We have it all!

About Progression Fitness
NCSF Certified Personal Trainer

"I'm committed to helping every client reach thier goal and change their life through fitness..."
Why am I so passionate about fitness? It's because I've experience fitness, and it changed my life. I started my fitness journey at a weight of 225 lbs, waist of 44 inches, and a body classification of obese. Basically, I was a BIG boy! Not only was my physical body suffering, I allowed my weight to affect every part of my life. I lacked any kind of confidence or self esteem which caused me to suffer from depression and anxiety disorders. I had trouble socializing with others and I certainly did not participate in many activities.
After a particular emotional social event, I decided that enough was enough! I was tired of looking, feeling and acting the way I did. I decided to join my local small box gym and enlisted the help of a personal trainer. I was very blessed to be matched up with the trainer that did. He did a great job. He taught me about proper nutrition and supplement needs in addition to our challenging and exciting workouts that kept me engaged and willing to come back for more. He was a huge support system for me and encouraged me every step of the way. My fitness journey took me almost 2 years of hard work and sacrifice but I'm happy to report that I was successful. Today, I'm 80 pounds lighter and at a healthy weight and body fat percentage. Not only did I achieve physical success, I not longer suffer from depression or anxiety. I'm quite the opposite. I'm very happy and outgoing and I pride myself on finding the positive on things that may seem negative.
I would love to meet you and see where you are on your journey and learn what your goals are to get you to the place you want to be both physically and emotionally. I would like to help you experience fitness!
With all Sincerity,
