Helping to take your current fitness to the next level while bringing 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!

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!
Words can not express how much appreciation I have for Team LP. I joined 1 year ago. I made the decision to get off the couch and make a change in my life. With the positive reinforcement and genuine encouragement from LP and Jenna, I have lost over 30 pounds since joining and I have never felt better in my entire life. There is no other staff at any gym that can stack up against Team LP. The community who attends is unlike any other group of people I have ever met and I am lucky to be apart of it. The workouts that Coach LP and Coach Jenna put together are not only challenging and dynamic, but incredibly fun. Team LP is deserving of a lot more than 5 stars.
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
I am so glad to be apart of the LP studio fitness fam I have nothing but great things to say about these workouts. If you're looking to lose weight, tone up, or even just looking to get back to loving working out again, THIS IS THE PLACE TO DO IT!!!! I joined with my sister who wants to get into shape for her wedding, and a month and a half later, she is starting to see results and feeling much more confident about herself. I decided to join after hearing nothing but good things from her about the workouts, and I couldn't have made a better decision. Even just after 3 weeks, I am starting to see parts of my body that needed improvement-IMPROVING!!! So satisfying to see hard work pay off, and If you join this program, you are guaranteed to see results, just stick with it. Not only are the coaches super friendly, but the people in there working out are so nice and everyone cheers each other on; I love that!!! The workouts are challenging, but the coaches are motivating and make the workout super fun. My workout routine now is something I look forward to every week. Shout out to LP and Jenna for making working out fun again and helping me gain my confidence again! Absolutely LOVE this place!!!
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!
I can't say enough about LP and his coaching staff. I love this place, I love LP and all his coaches. LP, Tyler, Jackie, and Waheed are truly amazing and I feel blessed to have found them all. I was very fit for years and I just fell in this circle of life many of us get into and lost my love for fitness. I had heard amazing things for years about LP and I was actually intimidated joining thinking everyone is super fit. Instead, I found everyone is at different levels and LP and his staff adjust all the circuit trainings to your needs. Everyone is welcome at this studio no matter what your fitness level is.
I have to talk briefly on the gyms that are offering the 6 week fitness challenges, run… don't do it. I left one of those gyms very disappointed and they did not do what was promisedl Your fitness choices and food should not be focused on a 6 week challenge. It's a life choice and will take longer than six weeks, its like an ultra marathon.
I gained 40lbs in 4 years and I felt devistated and alone. I started going to LP fitness and every day I just feel better. I love the workouts, they are 45 minutes but they go by fast because they are fun too.
My favorite is LP, Lawrence Phillips, he is a true coach and cares. He will challenge you not only in the gym, but also in your thought process. I didn't realize how negative my thought process was at times and he pointed it out. He is not a rear view mirror kind of coach, he will also help in positive thinking going forward. I am living what he is teaching me.
I will never forget when I missed almost a whole week…I got a call that Sunday from LP asking where I was. He checked on me, what gym does that? They do, they care and I feel it. It's changing my whole life. I feel blessed to have found LP and all the coaches at LP Fitness Playground. If you are looking for a place you will get trained hard and also feel a positive presence. This is the place.
The workouts are always different, hard, and a lot of fun. You will not be disappointed checking this place out. I love it 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
I have spent my life in gyms and I must say that this one is tops! The trainers are the best and the equipment is fun ( playground 😉 and varied! I never stopped working out over the years, but when I joined this gym a few years ago, I began to feel stronger in every area — arms, shoulders, back, legs, abs 🙂 The group fitness classes offer a great variety and by the end of every week, I have been pleasantly “worked over”!!! It is such a positive and encouraging environment and great way to either start your day or end it! 5 stars without any hesitation
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.
Oh my! Where do I begin!? This is the most amazing and life changing “gym” you'll ever go to. I walked into the fitness playground not knowing what to expect and left a completely different person. Not only does LP have the best, most creative workouts but he has created a support group that means even more! You are never alone in the fitness journey if you join at Team LP Fitness! I know this from personal experience, LP helped me lose 40+ pounds, but gain an awareness of who I am as a person and who I want to be! I gained such an insane passion for health and fitness and wanted to change peoples lives the way LP changed mine. He lit a fire in me I didn't know existed! I now consider myself a very confident, happy, beautiful, outgoing, smart, ATHLETE, words I never could use to describe myself before I I walked into the fitness playground, and for that I am forever thankful for LP and everything he does for his fitness family! I HIGHLY recommend team LP fitness!
One of the most fun gyms I've ever belonged to. Was sad when I moved and had to end my membership. You can tell that the owner has real passion for helping people meet their fitness goals. Very positive and welcoming.
The group classes are intense and you get an excellent workout in a quick hour. Also learn how to use all the fun equipment they have. If you're bored of very traditional gyms or looking to get back into shape I highly recommend Team LP.
It's been almost a year since I joined LP fitness playground, and I honestly couldn't picture my life without it. I don't think I would be where I am today if it wasn't for LP and his fitness playground. The constant encouragement from not only LP, but the members of LP is so positive and uplifting, I never want to leave! He has helped my attitude, believing in myself, and never giving up, no matter what the struggle is. It's not about the membership to him, it's about each individual. Every day is a different workout, a different challenge, it never gets old! If you are looking for a life changing place, come to the fitness playground, and I guarantee you will not be disappointed! I am so happy I joined LP fitness, the best decision I've made!
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! 🙂
The most motivating, encouraging, comfortable, and helpful fitness facility ever. The staff, and of course LP, are the most knowledgable and encouraging group ever. The members are like no other. They will introduce themselves, invite you to work out with them, and become your true friends. It is full of the most non judgmental people ever! It is also the most clean facility ever. No pervy guys either ;). If you are serious about getting fit and living a healthier lifestyle. Go in for their notoriously awesome tours. The fitness toys are so unique, fun, and effective. A truly revolutionary way to get fit. The group classes are one of a kind. Even if you have no clue where, or how, to start your journey to a new you, Team LP Fitness will show you what to do and stand by you every step of the way. They have changed so many lives.
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!
ALWAYS expect the unexpected as no one Team Training class is ever the same!
