We had the good fortune of connecting with Tom Green and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Tom, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
My thought process behind starting the GreenSpeed Training Facility was to create a home for the community. A home that not only catered to their physical goals, but also a place for the community to grow their individual families into one large family! A home that encompasses the values that I was so fortunate to be surrounded by when I was growing up.

I grew up as a rural Iowa farm boy, everyone knew everyone! Hard work and support from other locals was simply part of every day life. After moving to San Diego, I felt those elements were missing in most interactions with local businesses, and I truly missed that. While working in various gyms throughout 11 years, they were always focused on making money instead of focusing on what’s best for the clients. The experience always felt “cold” and unfulfilling.

In 2015, I took a leap of faith and decided to start my own gym. A gym that would embody my passion for clients to not only get results, but to offer a warm and fulfilling experience. To bring a piece of Iowa to the incredible community of Eastlake, Chula Vista!

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Founded in 2015, the GreenSpeed Training Facility is a personal training gym.

We specialize in all aspects of Sports Performance and general health & wellness. We do private training and small group training. We keep all of our group training sessions small to provide clients with maximum attention, quality, and safety.

We are known for our standards, values, and attention to detail. We truly have a gym family that caters to all individuals in the community. We offer programs for all ages and all goals.

What sets us apart is our quality vs. quantity business model. We are not interested in packing the gym with as many people as possible. We build great relationships with all of our clients and ensure they’re in an environment that is centered around their success in achieving their goals. In addition, everyone is treated equally. There are “gym rules” that everyone must follow. So it’s great to build the camaraderie with all the trainers and clients knowing we’re all held to the same standards.

Voted BEST Gym in San Diego and BEST Health Club/Fitness Center in South County, I’m incredibly proud to get feedback from everyone that comes into the gym for the first time. The GreenSpeed brand offers a warm welcoming “feeling” that is both inviting and indicative of hard work! The gym not only houses the best equipment and staff, but it also showcases clients and their achievements all over the walls. Most of our clients feel like GreenSpeed is their second home.

At GreenSpeed we not only offer personal training. But we also have a chiropractor, acupuncturist, masseuse, nutritionist, physical therapy, and yoga. Everything you need to achieve success under one roof!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Living in Otay Ranch, Chula Vista I would first take them on a trip up through the Silver Strand into Coronado. We’d swing by the local coffee shop and tour the Del Hotel. From there we’d head over the Coronado bridge then head into the Gaslamp area for a people watching experience! After that I’d take them up the coast through PB then stop at Windansea Beach to watch the surfers for a bit. Then after showing them around a few shops in La Jolla cove we’d finish at the Glider port to watch a sunset! Maybe we’d see some dolphins out in the distance. Dinner would hopefully be at Javier’s!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I owe everything to the support of my incredible family. Through all my journeys in life, they have been at my side. Without them I would have never been able to accomplish my various goals. Words can’t express my deepest sincerest appreciation for them.
