Somewhere hidden under those lost workouts and your busy life is the fit and healthy person you have always wanted to become. Helping you to bring out the best version of YOU – That’s what we do at Team LP Fitness Playground!
During a family vacation, I realized I was missing out on time with my kids because I couldn’t keep up. I had zero energy and was very unhappy in my own skin. With some encouragement from my husband, I tried out the two-week trial membership. With each class, my confidence increased and the sense of community kept me coming back.
The coaching staff is incredible and took the time to help me whenever I needed it. The classes are constantly changing, no two workouts are the same, the training is top-notch, and one of my personal favorites, the gym is crazy clean!
I’ve now been a proud member for the last year and a half, I train four days a week on average, I just hit my 215th team training class,
I’ve lost 50 lbs and I haven’t felt this good in a long time! Now instead of dreading exercising, I absolutely look forward to it because there is nothing else like the feeling of killing a hard workout and doing it with an awesome community of people. Even if you think you can’t do it, give Team LP Fitness a chance to change your mind, you won’t regret it!
I was voted by the members of Team LP Fitness as the winner of the ‘GET FIT’ Makeover Challenge. I learned through this journey that becoming healthy and fit was not something that would happen overnight and that with hard work, good eating habits, a positive support community and a personal positive attitude to never give up and continue to move forward no matter the road block that might come before me, would pay off. And it has paid off big time in so many ways!
Working out with Coach LP and being surrounded with the positive upbeat staff and members at Team LP Fitness Playground has helped in encouraging and motivating me to stick with the process of staying healthy and fit. When I am feeling like I need some motivation, they always come through for me – even if it is just a “You can do it, Vertis” on a Facebook post! I am now ENERGIZED – for LIFE!! THANK YOU To the AWESOME and SUPPORTIVE community of Team LP Fitness Playground and Coach LP.
Heading into the 9th grade, I was heavy at 200 lbs and not feeling good or believing in myself. Making the high school basketball team after already being cut from the middle school basketball team a year earlier, was not looking good.
I met LP and he changed my life. His positive and encouraging attitude towards health and fitness made me love exercising and motivated me to WANT to get fit. His style of coaching is unique and you never know what your going to get at the next workout.
Thanks LP you’re the man!
Dana and Ali Di Luvio
I was introduced to LP by my daughter Ali and I started taking a few personal training sessions with LP and found how motivating he could be. I moved to small group sessions a few times a week and started to see results.
I had never done any kind of class like this before. I had a fear of looking dumb in some kind of choreographed “jazzercise” class. Ali insisted it was nothing like that, so I gave it a shot. Needless to say, my fears were groundless, the classes are awesome!
In the past I had experimented with the success and failure of several fad diets, all claiming to be of the ‘latest and greatest’. I learned those don’t work. What did work for me was good healthy clean eating and committed to a regular routine of hard working exercise. I am a member at Team LP Fitness with regular weekly intense workouts as part of my routine. It feels great being at the ‘Fitness Playground’ with LP and all the supportive members! It’s motivating, it’s contagious and it is THE place to be!!! Love it!
THIS MAN DESERVES ALL OF THE STARS IN THE GALAXY-
Let's cut to the chase, I have worked out with multiple trainers and in multiple gyms across Sonoma County over the last 2 decades, never have I encountered a community of athletes with such dedication, support, smiles, laughing and positive vibes. Coach LP came HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend by my next door neighbor Caroline. If it wasn't for her, I wouldn't be here today working out with such a killer group of individuals. When I first met Coach LP on day one, I Literally told him, “What took me so long to find you?”. With 41 years experience I knew immediately, in that present moment, I was in the best hands I could be in and trusted him right away that I was in great care.
That day, Coach LP introduced me to his playground of CANI. As I walked through the doors, I with beating myself up mentally with a 20lb weight gain, my taco truck addictions and micro brew fetish. He quickly got me to toss that negatively out the window. I mean real quick because negativity is not allowed. It's left at the door and not welcomed inside.
I got this feeling of invitation, this feeling of comfort, this feeling of acceptance. I knew at that moment on day one, I was more than ready to sign a 1 year contract with zero hesitations and that's EXACTLY what I did.
This has been a very positive experience and test of strength and determination along with a personal mental battle. Both Coach LP and Coach Miss Jenna work well together as a great team and very much enjoy both of them instructing. Miss Jenna's energy keeps me going and she pushes me into my max red zone. Jenna is a bright shining star that has so much to give.l and give me that little dopamine kick in her class.She puts a smile on my face and has a beautiful future ahead of herself.
There is a huge sense of unity here. An incredible group of individuals that make sure they all pat one another on the back and say “Good Job” every single workout, every single time. LP is very good about encouraging and pushing to make sure everyone is successful, safety. When he gives me a pat on the back, he gives me a warm fuzzy feeling inside.
Coach LP is also on top of your form.
The guy sees everything, OKAY!
I mean, he sees, EVERYTHING !!!
Dude's like a spider with eyes on his body at every angle. You can't hide anything or half it, he'll see it. He will encourage you to keep putting out your best effort.
He will be on top of your form and help you along the way because safety is his number one priority. Let me tell you, I feel 110% safe here.
If you are looking for a meat market or workout without interaction, this is not your place. If you are looking for support, encouragement, positivity, laughter, connection, warm fuzzy vibes with a strong group of athletes, then I encourage you to explore his playground. There is a lot of love, heart and soul within his building and it shows in a reflection within his LP community.
Walking into a gym/group setting post pandemic, I wasn't sure what to expect or how much things have changed. I've never felt as safe as I do now. The cleaning and sanitation procedure here are very strict and on point. It smells like lemons. I ultimately feel safe knowing everyone as a team goes above and beyond protocol. Not once have I ever felt uncomfortable.
It's been 5 months since I started training at the playground and am happy with the progress. He has taken me, shaped me, molded me, dialed in my form, pushed me, encouraged me, helped me, listened to me and stood by my side during this transformation while sprinkling his CANI upon me.
From the bottom of my heart –
THANK YOU LP
This is by far the best environment I have ever worked out in. The instructors are all so motivating and nice. Their positive attitudes and the way they push you makes you want to work harder. The people that workout there really make you feel like part of a team. Always cheering for each other and after every class as we are putting equipment away everyone is telling each other “nice job you killed it!”.
The workouts are the hardest workouts I have ever done in my life. A month and a half in and I see results faster than I ever thought I would. While it's super hard, I never feel judged or self conscious to modify things when needed. Ego's are left at the door and I think for my mental health it's so nice to walk into a workout and instead of feeling anxious/ nervous about being judged for my performance level and where I am at physically, I walk in genuinely excited to see everyone and get my butt kicked at the same time.
LP Fitness made my passion for working out come back!
I was looking for a good workout location for my daughter. LP called me and was friendly and helpful from the start and I felt comfortable this was the place for my daughter. Wow have they exceeded my expectations. Friendly staff, friendly clients, clean environment. My daughter now goes 4 times a week and her twin sister has started going as well! I even went twice while visiting and got my butt kicked. I recommend LP Fitness to anyone looking for a great workout with even better people.
I moved to Santa Rosa 5 years ago and searched for the right gym for me. I don't like the big box gyms that pretend to know your name, offer classes that never have any space, have machines that are always taken by beefy dudes and the space is never clean. After a year of searching, I found Team LP Fitness. It's pretty much the opposite of everything I experienced at the larger gyms. Everyone knows your name (think Cheers but in a gym!), the trainers are top notch, the classes are fun and challenging and it's always clean! I look forward to coming to class to see what new workouts they have for us. So, if you want a place that genuinely cares about helping you achieve your fitness goals then come check out Team LP Fitness Playground! I'll see you there!
Best place to workout overall, period! Great staff, great equipment, super clean, and more importantly a great community. LP has created an atmosphere where you know you can get what you need to improve yourself physically and be a part of people who support you on that journey. Go in not sure you are up to it, would rather go home and hit the couch, but leave feeling energized knowing it was the right choice.
the team at the fitness playground bring to me inspiration and drive they push me each and every day to be a best and better me all while approaching it w a “were all in this together”, mentality! Lp has been the greatest mentor my teen daughter could
ask for and the “type of coach i need” trainer for myself! i love the atmosphere and vibe they have w/in the staff and community they have w the members! the workouts are kickass and always different they really push me and i mean
push! i truly
love Team Lp Fitness Playground and i will always thank them from my heart for bettering my family
You know those gym memberships you buy, then you get bored and you stop going? You will never get bored here. No two workouts are the same. I have followed LP since the early 90's and there is NO BETTER Fitness coach in town. You walk in feeling like $100, and leave feeling like a million bucks! (That's his famous line) but it's true! It is a judgement free zone, and it's safe. If you are worried, and you are a woman, there are classes for women only!
It's motivating working out with others who help inspire one another.
From the very first group class I took, over 5 years ago, I was hooked! It had everything I was looking for…cardio, strength and a challenge! What I would find out as I continued was that our coach, LP (only him at the time) was the real deal! Motivating us every day. Now, we have more amazing, hard working, loyal trainers teaching multiple classes every day of the week! No excuses not to work out!! What makes this place extra special is the people you are surrounded by…staff and clients. You really become part of this crazy gym family!
Five Stars all the way around when it comes to Team LP Fitness! My husband and I have been members for the past 6 years along with our 2 teenage daughters. We will not go anywhere else as Team LP

BEST FITNESS CENTER AROUND! Coach LP and his amazing group of trainers are seriously the best of the best. I became a member over a year ago and work out at the playground 2-3 times a week. In addition, I take at least 1 class per week with either Coach LP or Coach Jackie in the mornings at 6 am. I just tried the 8:15 am Saturday Class and was able to be coached by Tyler and Waheed– loved the circuit training! LP and his team have created a friendly, energetic, inspirational, encouraging, non-pretentious fitness center that is approachable for all. Thank you, LP, for sharing your passion of health and fitness with us!
Over the past 20 years, I have been a member at numerous gyms throughout Santa Rosa and I have to say that none of them come close to this place. Team LP Studio Fitness Playground goes above & beyond in so many ways.
Let's start with the playground itself. There is a piece of equipment for every single muscle in your body that comes with careful instruction from either one of LP's amazing team members or from LP himself. They make sure you are safe and successful. It is impeccably clean and organized, equipment is maintained on regular basis and any repairs that are needed are done amazingly fast. LP is always introducing new and exciting fitness toys and the classes are NEVER “routine”.
The members there are amazing!!!!! Friendly, supportive, and encouraging. They are there to have fun, get fit and give it all they got. There's no gossiping or annoying pick ups here. We leave the cell phones in the car and come ready to kick butt.
The staff are all equally amazing. they are always polite and happy to see you. They always have time to help you go over a machine or answer any questions you may have. You will never see them flipping through a magazine or scrolling through Facebook, they are always engaged in their job.
Last but definitely least, there is the owner LP. His energy is amazing. He has the utmost passion for every member. He knows everyone by name, says hello to everyone walking in and goodbye to everyone walking out. His classes are never routine and are always challenging. He knows what you are capable of and he will push you to give it all you got. This is so much more than a job to him, this is passion at it's finest.
I joined LP a little over a year ago, at 44 I weighed 204lbs. LP pushed me, held me accountable, didn't give into my BS excuses, and when I disappeared for a couple of days he would text or FB me and say hey lets go. I dropped 40 lbs and got down to 163. Unfortunately for me, I stopped working out all together and slowly the weight started coming back. I went straight back to LP because this is the only place where I know I will get the results I want,
Team LP Fitness Playground is different from any other workout facility in Sonoma County.
It starts at the top!
LP has a passion to help better people's daily lives & to build community.
LP lives, breathes, dreams of ways to improve the quality of life for each of us!
There is ALWAYS positive, motivating energy that is felt when you walk in, are greeted by your name..you will soon have a smile on your face!
LP & his staff are helpful, friendly, knowledgeable & are WILLING to do what it takes to help make the most of your time & experience.
The place is ALWAYS spotless, the machines are top of the line & everything is always organized, clean & ready for use!
The members of LP's Studio are friendly, kind & motivating individuals too.
I feel we are not just clients to LP…
We are his part of his growing family!
But the funny thing…we ALL like & want to help each other! 🙂
I LOVE LP Studio Fitness Playground!! LP's Fitness Center is one of a kind and LP cares and takes care of his clients, always making you feel welcome and promises the most AWESOME class workouts I've ever experienced! LP is a Master Motivator and Lifestyle Coach promoting health in mind, body & spirit. If you are tired of the same old gym experience and ready for a real challenge, try LP's workouts! This place changes lives!!
Love LP and his ACEO's. My husband and I have been working out at the Playground for over 3 years and we are in the best shape of our lives (both of us turned 48 this year). LP is the most amazing person – he is not in it for ratings – he is in it to make you the best you can be both physically and mentally. Great equipment, crazy hard (fun) classes and fantastic people! If you join you must want to make a change with your personal workout regime – exercise, eat clean and have a positive attitude! Hard work outs make for great results – this is the place to do it!
At the age of 60, I looked at my family history of heart disease, my weight and my cholesterol level and realized “it's now or never.” Stopped by the Fitness Playground and LP invited me to a class the next morning. Whooped my butt, that class did. But, 9 months later I entered the first athletic competition in my life and came in 2nd in my age group for Mud Man 2013. Better yet, 18 months later my doc says I have only a 2% chance of having a heart incident in the next 10 YEARS. Woot!
I hate gyms, but the space Lawrence Phillips has created is unlike any gym I have ever experienced before. It is ridiculously clean. It is filled with interesting, cutting edge equipment that LP is always switching out and adding to. It is also filled with an almost shocking level of comaraderie, smiles and support from everyone. Take a class and you will be warmly encouraged to do your best – whatever your best might be at that point in time.
There is no gratuitous grunting, pectoral posturing or bootie brandishing at The Playground — just a lot of regular folk in all shapes and sizes having fun and working hard to be as healthy as they can be.
Did I mention it was clean?
Team LP Fitness and LP have changed the lives of myself and my son. LP was kind enough to take on my 13 year old son who was so out of shape that he didn't make the basketball team in middle school. Not only did he change him physically so that he was able to start on the Varsity basketball team but he also took the time to mentor him but to also be a positive male role model for a boy who's father is not in his life much. That's just LP himself but then you factor in the training center too and you have an amazing combination of an owner who truly lives what he preaches and offers a place for serious fitness minded folks to get the best workout in the most efficient way. Have you ever been into a fitness center where the owner and employees greet you by first name and the other members acknowledge you and support you in your journey? This is what you will find at Team LP Fitness. Thanks LP, you're the best!
3 1/2 yrs. ago my daughter who is also a fitness professional talked me into trying out a circuit training class with her at 8am on a Sat. morning. When I asked her why I would want to do this on my Sat. at 8 a.m. her reply was “it is the people”. Lawrence Phillips has developed a Fitness Playground with positive like minded and serious people who want to train hard and he pours it on big time. Always a challenge! Today I am 60 and stronger than ever physically and mentally! I have always said this playground is the happiest place on earth right up there with Disney Land, LP style of course! Team LP Fitness has won Sonoma County's Best for 2 consecutive years now and in the running once again, and I am proud to be part of that! I would recommend Team LP (truly a team) to anyone who's Health and Fitness is a priority. Mine is more than ever and I get up at 5 a.m as I live in West Santa Rosa to arrive in time for the 6 a.m. group fitness class where often there are 40 other people to support me and cheer me on!
LP's is such a great place to workout! So many positive things about this place – the set up of the gym, the location (don't have to compete for parking), the machines/equipment, the price, the atmosphere, the CLEANLINESS, the people, etc. It is a place where “everyone knows your name” and you are treated as a friend immediately upon entering. I have never taken the classes, but those I know who do love them. LP is very supportive and motivating. I never feel judged by anyone there or insecure when I'm working out, which sounds silly but is refreshing when compared to other gyms like 24 Fitness. So happy to have found it!
Love, love love this gym!
LP (aka Lawrence Phillips) is a master motivator and will get anyone moving. This is NOT a big fitness mill and LP proudly offers plenty of individualized attention. His classes (highly recommended) offer variety and challenge…it's never the same workout twice, so there is absolutely no reason to get bored. His clientele are dedicated LP fans and are all positive, respectful and supportive, just like LP and staff.
Do something really good for your head, body, for the people in your life or for the people you'd like to have in your life and check this place out.
Prepare for positive changes!
ALWAYS expect the unexpected as no one Team Training class is ever the same!
