About Us

EFCT Fitness was founded by Michael Duralde, a veteran of the fitness industry, after he realized that it was hard to find one gym or studio that encompassed all the best aspects of fitness.

EFCT Fitness offers strength, mobility, cardio endurance, and recovery all in one place, with the goal of helping each client reach their individual fitness goals. Our group classes put an emphasis on building community and fostering a sense of family. EFCT Fitness strives to be a one-stop shop for fitness with a supportive and energizing atmosphere.

Mission: To build an EFCT Nation where like minded individuals come together with a common goal to be happier and healthier.

Vision: We will create fitness routines that are made for everyone! Even though we will be working out as a group, the routines at EFCT Fitness are specifically crafted for you to reach your individual goals.

Values: Inspiration, Integrity, Energy, Community, Togetherness
